 Vegeta, Settled Down Level 2 #122 from Kid Buu Saga

Constant Combat Power: Your opponent cannot play and use Combat cards. All of your attacks do +2 life cards of damage.

Wow. This is one of the top 5 level 2's in the game. This power can be so devastating to so many different decks, it is like getting a Broly's Might every turn! Plus all your attacks do +2 life. Say goodbye to Dragon's Victory decks and Dragon Ball decks! Many good decks can be used with this because Vegeta has 5 levels, all you have you have to do is aura clash, and you really don't have to worry about losing by MPPV unless your opponent is using an anger deck. I would say that this level would be more accesible as a level 3 rather than level 2, so you could make a level 3 deck and then just stay on this level, but this card's power is so awesome that isn't that much of a downer. Awesome in any deck, but especially in freestyle Vegeta decks that have Vegeta, The Celestial as the level 1.

Ratings:

Standard - 4.5 (Shuts down so many decks, only problem is that Vegeta isn't the most used persoanlity, and this is a level 2)

Tuff Enuff - 4 (Not quite as devastating in Tuff Enuff, although it will be easier to get to level 2 with Are You Tuff Enuffs)

Sealed Deck - 1.5 (level 2 ally? Unless you pulled Vegeta as your MP)
KingBroly Vegeta, the Settled Down (Lv.2)
Constant Combat Power - Your opponent cannot play or use Combat cards.

Standard: 3/5
       What?! Wow! If it was a level 1, it'd be down right BROKEN! Anyway, with some decks you'll be able to get here easily with Saiyan, Red, Freestyle. But with Orange or Black you'll be stuck w/o much of a chance to get here.
Tuff Enuff:  3.5/5
       More likely to get here. Maybe not for long, but probably long enough to keep your opponent at bay. If you get here, you'll stay here if you can keep the Power on. Why? Because most cards that raise your anger from your opponent are Combat cards. Ouch. So, it slows them down, depending on the deck.

Vegeta, Settled Down Level

Standard Rating 2.0
TE Rating 1.0
Limited - N/a the Buu Saga Vegeta is Majin Vegeta

When you first look at Vegeta, Settled Down his power looks incredible. Not combat cards AND more damage? Then think about what combat cards you are really worried about?

A17 smirks? Getting to level 2 killed your drills anyway since they used North Kai first.

Cells Presence isn?t a problem, who runs Vegeta ally anyway?

Trunks Energy Sphere, sure but how many combat cards are you running that you need explicitly.

Combat Card Omni Blocks, Aside from Time is a Warriors tool or Cells Defense, who runs these anymore?

Combat Card Ally Search, Decently Effective

Black Scout Maneuver, Decent.

Combat Card Attack? I can think of 3, Namekian Strike, That Brolly Promo, and the red attack twice.

For TE, running Vegeta, Settled Down lets you laugh at people with a terrible level 2, nothing more.

Kid Buu Saga #122 Lvl 2

Can we say ew? The Evilness, Evilness.

I don't think people will be using Aura Clash on Vegeta much anymore. Aura Clash and...oh, I can't use Dazed, Time is a Warriors Tool, Super Sayian Effect, Unlocked Potential, etc. This is just wrong. You can Aura Clash yourself here, and never have to worry about those pesky Combat cards.

This card is just good. The game has been needing some more Combat Defense, and Vegeta has been needing some really good personalities. He was good to begin with, now, you will be seeing a lot more of him. Aura Clash yourself, or just use Unlocked Potiential. Used with Goku Sensei, Vegeta never comes off this stage. Just watch your slime anger though.

The rest of his text isn't anything to be ignored either. +2 life cards to all attacks? Can we say Blue Physcial Beatdown using Buu Saga Mastery? Thats just wrong to even think about, all blue physical attacks do +4 life cards! This is a very good card, and one that I expect to see a lot of in local and tournament play.

Standard: 4 of 5
Tuff Enuff: 4 of 5
Sealed: 1 of 5 (only good if you drew Vegeta as your MP) ~ Surllio ~

Wednesday - Vegeta, Settled Down

Power: Constant Combat Power: Your opponent cannot play and use Combat cards. All of your attacks do +2 life cards of damage

WHA!?..it was bad enough that he doesn't let his opponent play or use Combat cards (HA HA Dragon Ball Decks :p..). But on top of that, his attacks do any additional 2 life!! Hmm..lucky he's a level 2.. if he weren't, it would just be evil..He's very good in any beatdown deck, and he's good in BOTH standard AND Tuff Enuff, in Standard because he practically SLAUGHTERS Dragon Ball decks, and Tuff Enuff because he prevents Time is A Warriors Tool, Smokescreen, Prepared Dodge, and all those other annoying Combat Cards , and he dishes out extra damage.

Standard: 4.5
Tuff Enuff: 4.2

Vegeta, Settled Down Level 2 Ė Kid Buu Saga Rare - #122 Personality

Power: Constant Combat Power: Your opponent cannot play and use Combat cards. All of your attacks do +2 life cards of damage.

And we thought Android 17 was wrong.

It is often said that this Vegeta is the hands down best level 2 in the game. I wouldnít be able to argue much against that.

Everyone should know that Combat cards are the strongest cards in the whole game. Completely shutting them all down gives you a major advantage, especially knowing all of yours will work as well. You wonít have to worry about Trunks Energy Sphere, but I would still run them because you will be on level 1 for some time.

Biggest key is getting to level 2, so run some Let the Games Begin! Aura Clash is decent against certain characters. Vegeta doesnít have too many really game breaking level 1s, so keep that in mind.

I havenít seen a good deck that doesnít run a big collection of Combat cards. Vegeta can just easily open up a good combat, not to mention the +2 life to every attack.

He can do a whole lot of things with that power, ranging from beatdown to Dragonís Victory. Making it a level 2 hurts a lot of ideas like DB, but it is still stable enough to work with. You just plain easily disrupt your opponentís strategy, as playing without Combat cards severely hurts anyone who has a decent deck.

Try him out. It isnít a level 1, but try making a deck that gets there. Youíll see that Vegeta, with awesome levels 2 and 3, can give your opponent a run for their money. If this was a level 1, that would be broke, but regardless, this is a very good card.

Standard: 4.7 out of 5.0 (shuts down a ton of decks like DB, DV, Namekian, and so forth) Tuff Enuff: 4.4 out of 5.0 (youíll get here easier, and can shutdown AYTE/AC, but there arenít as many stasis type decks)
Sealed: 1.5 out of 5.0 (a level 2 ally wonít help much) ~matthewlow
