White Lily Musketeer Captain, Cecilia
Oh dear. So first off, we need Cecilia as the
heart...well, if we ignore the fact she's only going to
be 25k base on appearance, so no magic numbers for
you...the end result is, she can CB1 and retire two
Musketeers to look at the top 5 cards of your deck, then
call 3 Musketeers among them to separate rear-guard
circles, and shuffle the deck.
I ask this...why would we EVER do that?
Sure, maybe a +1 for CB1 sounds efficient. Problem is,
unless you somehow wind up summoning a crap field from
your roulette playstyle, your field should already look
reasonably decent, especially since there is at least a
reasonable level of control; sacking two cards away for
a chance of a field that will only look slightly better
at first but then work out as shit later doesn't sit
right. Not even just so we can have the Dandelion
Musketeer be a 9k booster all the time.
There's also the issue of what purpose this would serve
in the long run. Fill the drop zone for base Cecilia's
Limit Break? What the hell sort of good is that going to
do you now when the opponent should be at a stage where
they can bring out their beefy pseudo GB2 G-Unit to
smash your ass? You won't be able to Stride on the same
turn you use it, so you're just stuck with a crappy
power Vanguard and nothing to actually murder the
opponent before then.
Musketeers are not a thing and short of one that can
re-stand or something probably never will. Just run
G-Neo Nectar if you really have to.
White Lily Muskeeter Captain, Cecelia
If you have a heart with Cecelia in its name, CB1,
retire two rear guards and check the top five cards for
up to three Musketeer rear guards and call them to R.
When I first looked at it, I thought "search your whole
deck for up to three Muskeeters?!" Then I read it more
carefully and went "awww!"
Anyway, it's not a bad skill, I'm drawing a blank as to
what you could retire that you would have called out.
Do Muskeeters have a Luck Bird clone? Hmm, nope,
they do have a Grom clone though.
I suppose you could always sacrifice Rebecca after she
uses her skill, letting you get some more mileage out of
Ernst and Alain work well too, but they're triggers,
then again, Alain works if called to R from one of your
Over-all, it's pretty decent, I think, and worth a spot
in your G-deck if you're running Musketeers and have
