Back to the main COTD
3rd card of the week is Victoplasma. He packs some mean
punch here. Once he's Stridden, for an ACT cost of CB2
and turning a copy of himself in the G-Zone face up, if
you now have two face up G-Units there, he loses 1 drive
check this turn, but gets to restand after attacking for
a cost of 2 card from the hand. Once per turn, anyway.
So effectively, how does he break down? Well, you lose
out on an Extra Drive Check that turn, so it's -1. You
then attack again, forcing a -2 from the opponent at
least. +0 wash involved from tossing 2 and then Drive
Checking 2 back again. So Victoplasma is basically a CB2
In theory then, not exactly efficient, but of course
this assumes he won't meet a PG to the face. A 26k body
means at least 3 cards otherwise just to 2-to-pass this
dude, so you really do need to read the opponent's cards
well to milk this guy effectively. He's a brutal finish
for someone with a small hand, and considering what the
new deck can do before then to whittle it down, it sets
up very nicely.
Victoplasma is not a card to be used recklessly, but he
provides a nice finish for those who have little to
Ethics Buster Reverse, when did you get so big?
What we have here is a Nova Grappler Persona Flip Stride
unit. For a CB2, PF cost, Victoplasma loses one
drive check and gets to restand after discarding two
cards from the hand after attacking the vanguard.
Well, it's... Not bad, not really, it swings in
with such big numbers that at the very least the dual
twin drive will be hard to stop. At least you
don't need to lock two units like Ethics Reverse did.
Sadly, this, while scary, really isn't anything new in
terms of what we've seen before. And, just watch,
near the end of Block 5 there will be a Kagero unit that
can do what this does, but better since it won't lose
its Trinity Drive.
