What's up, you guys?! It's the midcard part of the calendar, so let's get over the hump with a previously talked about card that got reprinted in this most recent set:

Little Witch, LuLu
Power: 5000
Grade 0
Clan: Oracle Think Tank
Race: Human
[AUTO](Soul):When another of your grade 3 or greater «Oracle Think Tank» is placed on (VC), you may call this card to (RC).
[AUTO]:[Choose two «Oracle Think Tank» from your soul, and put them into your drop zone] When this unit is placed on (RC) from your soul, if you have an «Oracle Think Tank» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.

...normally made for CoCo and probably the most popular starter for Oracle Think Tank these days, but is it really justified to be used in every deck including sub-clans? LuLu has 5,000 Power with an effect that technically doesn't activate until the mid game. When a Grade 3 is placed on the Vanguard Circle and she's in the soul, she pops out of the soul and to the rear-guard, and when she does, you get to, initially, Soul Blast 2 to draw a card. This initially gives the player a instant benefit as it nets an extra card just for going into Grade 3. That and the fact that LuLu goes to the rear-guard because of going to Grade 3 makes it so that you gain a little bit extra field presence for it. Also, the fact that Linchu can't do anything about LuLu until you're at a Grade 3 makes it so that he has to retire something else, which can be good or bad depending on the situation. This does bring back my question on whether you should just play LuLu in any Oracle Think Tank style kind of deck (minus Tsukuyomi for obvious reasons) or if there's room for other starters for sub-clans or even other unmentioned starters like Eclair (while she's a Battle Sister, she is overlooked by Waffle)? Personally, while LuLu IS a very good card as she adds cards to your hand, I always had a soft side for starters that were specifically made for their respective sub-clans like Waffle for Battle Sisters, Lozenge/Sphere Magus and the such, and LuLu was technically supposed to be made the same way...it's just that she became so good that she basically grew out of the Soulless Witches deck.

Overall, LuLu is deemed one of the best starters for a reason, but don't let her overshadow the fact that there are always others to use as well.

Rating: 4.5/5
Art: 3/5 (Not sure how I should feel about little girl witches...)
Next Time: I'm thirsty...anyone have anything to drink?

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!


Little Witch, Lulu


Third this week is pretty much the best starting Vanguard for OTT ever. She's unusual in that she doesn't emerge from the soul straight away; she only comes out when you Ride to Grade 3. But when she does, you Soulblast 2 to draw 1 card. So taking your first ride into account this starter generates an overall +1 for you.


She's pretty much the best you have for a good reason. Sure, there is no way to get rid of her without minusing yourself, but there's not much to be lost given that the +0 wash overall is pretty much what you'd expect from other Forerunner starters anyway.


Everything so far this week seems to be pretty straightforward, including this. For almost every OTT deck that isn't Tsukuyomi, you start with this.
