Ok ok so JayManFu yells at me to do
another COTD so I say why not. After Tim Batow's (Poketim
anybody?) eye gauging and somewhat huge "review", or shall we say
article, on one single card, I was afraid to do another review.
But I'm back, and so are my Words of Wisdom. Jeice's Flash Attack
is the card that is up today. Who uses this card? Nobody uses
it. It is actually a decent card. But who uses it? No one.
Here in lies the problem with this card. No one used Straining
Energy Move until Brian Blanchard played it at US Nationals 2K1.
Then everyone started using it. Now it's errata'd and is quite
worthless. So someone make a deck using cards like this (Jeice's
Flash Attack, Tien's Power Burst, etc.) that will win Worlds 2K3
and then I'll give it a higher rating. Until then, gimme
defense! 2/5 both formats.
Flash attack - Frieza Saga
Hmm. An interesting card from the frieza saga. Its an energy attack
and if its successful it stops all opponents from making energy
attacks for the remainder of combat. Seems like a great card. Being
able to stop them from making energy attacks is pretty nice but its
only for one combat. Plus its gotta be successful and unless you
start combat with a staredown or confrontation you wont have many
chances to land this attack. If you want the best energy defense you
have the omni blocks, and of course Android 20s absorbing drill.
Jeice Flash Attack- This card is a very unused card.
Even though it can be used with some other cards to
really mess up your opponent. You could use this,
tien's power burst and black energy web all making it
so if they hit, your opponent cant use energy attacks.
Ive actaully seen this card use a lot in my local
tournies, and it has messed me up quite a few times.
TE- For TE, this card isnt quite as good with more
physical beats. Actually this card isnt that great at
all in TE. But you it can still do good if your
opponent is playing some energy attacks. 2.3/5
Jeice Flash Attack
This is a card that can be quite powerful, but is
almost always overlooked when building a deck. If
played right you can stop an energy deck in their
tracks. Granted it has to hit, but when it does, your
opponent will be wishing he had kept that energy
In Standard, good if you can hit with it, but it won't
do much against an Anger or DB deck.
In Tuff Enuff, basically have the decks run energy.
You could even throw it in a physical deck for some
semi-energy defense. Of course, if you're playing
Black, use Black Energy Web.
Jeice Flash Attack
Its okay, and a bit underrated, but the decks you would want to play
it in all have better alternatives. It might be a nice card in Black
or Orange where you can make it do a basic 5 life cards, but Black
and Orange have cards like Black Energy Web, Orange Energy Smash,
and Orange Power Beam which would all take its spot in my decks.
Many players make the comparison of Jeice Flash Attack to Tiens
Power Burst, two very similar cards from the Frieza Saga. However,
both of their effects are slightly different. While Jeice Flash
Attack stops all energy attacks from being performed, including
those made from personalities, Tiens Power Burst prevents a Energy
Attack card from being played, thus Power Burst can stop cards like
Kick and Blue Arm Blast from being used as defenses. I prefer Tiens
Power Burst a little more, but that’s just more of a personal
preference, both Jeice Flash Attack and Tiens Power Burst are evenly
matched in a beat down deck.
As of now, I wouldn’t consider playing Jeice Flash Attack in a deck,
but things could always take a turn in the future. The card has
potential, but no potential worth exploiting right now.
Standard - 2.2/5
Tuff Enuff - 2.5/5
