No review today.
The great demand for this card puzzles me greatly. For
the most part, it's nothing more than a Smokescreen. If
Goku's Mixing Drill is in play, it can be an energy attack, but
just how many decks will use that drill, anyway? Most good
decks out there, barring Cosmic Backlash, are tokui-waza, giving
that drill no use and removing any chance of the energy attack.
It looks cool, yes, but that's where the important goodness stops.
If I wanted a dual block, I'll just use Smokescreen or Mother's
Touch. If I want an attack/block card, I'd even go with King
Kai, since his condition for the attack/block is much more likely
to be done than this card. To me, this is just a standard
dual-block with a slight improvement.
Thursday: Goku's Super Saiyan
This card is.....ok. Sure, its an omni block,
but it has its weaknesses.
Orange Energy Discharge and focused attacks
can get through it. Most people won't have Goku's Mixing Drill in
play to utilize the option of making an energy attack. 4 of these in
a goku deck might be decent. Not many focused attacks are being used
in normal tournament environment to pose serious threat to this
card....except orange decks ;).
In Tuff Enuff, focused attacks are thriving.
This card won't be much help against carefully teched beatdown
Tuff Enuff: 1.5/5
Thursday - Goku's Super Saiyan
Will somebody PLEASE tell me why they used
this image? Is he firing a Kamehameha 0_o..noooo... as said
before..does Score even watch the show?
This card isn't nearly as good as it used to
be, with the introduction of Focused attacks and all. I still
consider it a MUST in most decks, along with Smokescreen, and
Prepared Dodge. But as I've said, it's not nearly as useful as it
used to be. Of course it can also be an energy attack, but Goku's
Mixing Drill has to be in play, and now most people don't use
multi-style deecks anymore, so not many people would include a
Goku's Mixing Drill in their deck. So again, with the introduction
of Masteries (in TS) the use of this card has plummeted lower and
lower In standard it gets a rating of 3.2
The card is a little bit worse due to the fact
that Tokui-Waza is even more prominent in the Tuff Enuff
environment, so the energy attack part of the card will be useless,
but the defense the card provides is amazing, but again, it cannot
prevent Focused attacks..but it can still prevent cards like
Rebellion, Blue Windup Blast, etc.,
TE rating: 3.0
