Genesis Dragon, Excelics Messiah


Generation Rare-ception. For this to work, you need to have an Amnesty Messiah face-up in your G Zone. Then, when this unit attacks, you flip ANOTHER Amnesty in the G-Zone face-up and Counterblast 1 to unlock as many locked cards as you want. All your unlocked cards gain 3k power until end of turn, while any unlocked opposing cards are retired. Then if you unlocked three units this way, it gains +1 Critical.


Christ almighty. Budget Messiah deck? What is that? Okay, putting money issues aside, this isn't all too bad, and it helps that the new support in this set makes Amnesty not suck as a first Stride anymore. Being able to get rid of problems proactively makes the deck better, as well as the column game this card can play now.


I don't imagine this pushes Messiahs to top tier but it does make the deck a hell of a lot more consistent. Anyway, this card is good. Not 4-of good (you can't spare that many Amnesty, duh) but it's good.




Genesis Dragon, Excelics Messiah
Final card of the week is...  Not bad.  Kind of a throw-back to Aurageyser Doomed (Damned!).
Anyway, CB1, flip over the previous version, Amnesty Messiah in this case, unlock any number of locked units, any of your units unlocked get bigger and you retire your opponent's units that get unlocked.
Not bad, oh, and there's the +1 critical this gets if you unlock 3 (or more) units at once.
It's not bad, a nice way for G-LJs to get some real advantage going too.
Over-all, not bad, though still pricy.
Rating: 3/5
See you next week, folks, where we see if Saikyo's a vampire or not and expose him to Sunlight.
...Wait, you mean the sun does shine in the UK?
Never mind then.
