Ooh, a card that I can
REALLY review with confidence. Venus Luquier. For an ACT
skill of Counterblast of 2 Silver Thorns and
Soulcharging 2, you call rear-guards from the soul who's
Grades equal 6 maximum.
Problems? Well, let's start
with the very generous assumption that your field will
be quite bare come LATE GAME, when the field should be
nearly full by then. If you've lost a booster and both
your front row, then it's essentially CB2 for +3.
Efficient, but not really going towards murdering the
Second problem is that the
Soulcharging generally won't amount to much. All it's
doing is giving you two random chances at getting
something that will be better than what you have
currently. And that won't help when Pale Moon's about
swapping attacks mid-battle upon hitting something

Late Game when everything remotely related to on-hits
will be guarded).
Venus isn't on the same

Ah, a new Silver Thorn boss. After being freed from the
Reverse, her body was scarred from the remains of when
she was Reversed, thus her hair had changed color, among
So, for another Cross Ride of this week, sheesh, what is
this? Cross Ride week? What do we get here?
Well, you get to CB 2 Silver Thorns (darn, can't be used
with basic Pale Moons), Soul Charge 2 cards, then
superior call as many units from the Soul as you want,
so long as the total grade level is 6 or less. So,
basically, you can get a Grade 3, three grade 1s or a
grade 2 and four grade 1s. Combine this with something
like Purple Trapeziest, and you can replace one of the
grade 1s you got (provided you got a grade 2 as well)
for another Grade 2 or a Grade 3 in the Soul.
So, it's pretty similar to the original, but no power
boost for superior calling units.
Overall, it's not bad, it really depends on what you
have in the Soul, but Pale Moon are experts at
manipulating the Soul, for them, the Soul is a second
Rating: 3.75/5 (Yeah, it's an oddball number, but it's
