Go Rogue,
Go Pro

What's up, you guys?! So we're looking at more cards that aren't really out yet, which is always a crazy awesome thing, so let's take a look at more nuns!

Battle Sister, Monaka
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Oracle Think Tank
Race: Elf
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a card named "Battle Sister, Monaka" from your hand, and discard it] Look at five cards from the top of your deck, search for two cards from among them, put them into your hand, and put the rest on the bottom of your deck in any order.
[ACT](VC):[Counter Blast (2)-card with "Battle Sister" in its card name] This unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

...I see this one as a more situational Parfait, which is still in its own right. Monaka is an 11,000 Power unit that can become stronger with a Especial Counterblast 2 that'll give her an extra 5,000 Power, so it's good in those tight situations where you're trying to squeeze out that extra Shield from your opponent for the final push. Also, her Limit Break, while situational in the fact that it's a Persona Blast, is a pretty good one as you get to grab 2 cards from the top 5 cards of your deck. This makes it so that it can add some extra Sentinels and Shields or give you more cards to add to your attack formation, so the possibilities of this card are pretty high as it matters with the top 5 cards.

Overall, I can see this card being used as much as Parfait if not with her as two solid bosses.

Rating: 3.5/5 (Still slightly prefer Parfait over her.)
Art: 4.5/5 (...though her art is definitely better! XP)
Next Time: Of what I've been told, the Magus deck is pretty Stellar.

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


Battle Sister, Monaka


Third this week is Battle Sister, Monaka. Her Limit Break skill is to CB2 and Persona Blast to look at the top 5 cards of a deck, put two to the hand, and put the rest at the bottom. Oh, and a Especial CB of 2 that gives her 5k, but that's rarely useful on a VG.


First thing you think of is her ability to search for an instant +1 out of a good variety of cards. Honestly though, she's pretty boring. She comes with too many flaws making her largely uncompetitive. Let me list them:


1. She depends on having another copy of herself in the hand, so it relies on chance to pull off.


2. It suffers the same problem as Hexagonal Magus in that CEO can do her shtick of stacking things EVERY turn.


3. If you were to look at her in terms of strict advantage gained, what she essentially is is a delayed Coco. She can net 2 cards instantly on-ride, whereas Monaka has to wait AND fulfill another condition to use.


4. Monaka's ability to obtain more physical cards doesn't stack up to CEO's ability to net more triggers in terms of overall shield obtained. The random cards to the hand will be at best 5k shield average, whereas CEO can get you more 10k shields to the hand, so CEO in terms of long term benefits is better.


With no reliable way to search herself, I can't really recommend her or the Battle Sisters. Once they stop being crap Coco or crap Neo Nectar then we'll talk.
