Blue Style Mastery – Buu Saga
Rare - #128

Power: All of your Blue Style physical attacks do +2 life cards of damage. During your "Defender Defends" phase you may remove any amount of Blue Style cards in your discard pile from the game instead of using a Defense. Prevent 2 life cards of damage from the attack for each Blue Style card removed.

Wrong. Just wrong. Well, more annoying than wrong.

This Mastery stalls to death. This Mastery, for all intensive purposes, generally means you have a larger life deck. That, of course, can do a lot of things.

Defensive Buu can reduce life cards, and with this Mastery, very little damage will leak through. That allows anyone with this Mastery to have enough time to finish off other decks with little resistance. It won’t affect Krillin’s Heat Seeking Blast, but for the most part it can endure a lot of the onslaught that is thrown at it.

The problem with this Mastery is most people running this will run a lot less blocks, and thus they will get pummeled if their discard is removed or their Mastery gets shut off (via North Kai, Saiyan Power Beam, Saiyan Charge). One combat can finish off any deck with this Mastery.

This Mastery only prevents the beatdown victory, or more or less stall it. Decks that win by anger, Dragon’s Victory, DB, or Backlash can effectively get around this Mastery since it shouldn’t harm them much. You will have to run a ton of support cards to make this Mastery work in a deck that techs against all archtypes.

Don’t forget the other part of the Mastery; the addition to physical attacks. Blue doesn’t have very many, but it does pack some strong ones like Blue Round Throw. Being able to physical along with a strong Mastery is nice, but Blue really needs better Blue cards to make this used to its full potential.

Standard: 3.6 out of 5.0 (very strong Mastery; can be better than CS but more often not; works nicely against beatdown, but more Blue cards needed) Tuff Enuff: 3.9 out of 5.0 (beatdown predominant)

Sealed: 3.5 out of 5.0 (depends on how much Blue you pull) ~matthewlow

AJC468 Majin Buu Saga Blue Style Mastery:

Wow, this is blue's best mastery yet (and I love it).  Blue style has always been behind the other styles because it has the least amount of playable cards for it's style.  The reason blue remains as good as most of the other styles is it's mastery(s).  The CS Mastery was a great mastery during it's time (and still is good), but the new blue mastery is exceptional.  There are many people who want this mastery changed because the effect makes it extremely hard to damage the person using it.  The thing is, it is very easy to get around this mastery.  There are quite a few cards that can counter it, the easiest one if North Kai.  The other is too remove their discard pile.  The easiest counter of all is saiyan style.  With saiyan power beam, saiyan charge, and north kai they will not be using their mastery much the whole game .  Anyways, more on the mastery it's self.  This mastery increases the damage you do with physicals, and allows to prevent 2lc off your opponents attack for every blue card you remove in your discard pile.  This is truly an amazing mastery right off the bat.  This mastery combos with blue prevention to a small degree.  Now it's time to dispell some false information.

1.  The Blue Mastery and Blue Prevention Drill does not allow you to prevent 3lc for every blue card you remove.  If you read the card carefully then you realize that the one extra prevention takes places after you remove all the blue cards you are chosing to remove.  This means that if you remove 3 blue cards you prevent 7lc (2x2x2+1).

2.  Blue Prevention Drill only effects cards that prevent damage, not cards that reduce damage.  This means cards like Yajirobe's Gifting Drill and Guldo's Time Freeze Drill are not affected by this card.  Remember that if it doesn't say prevent, it is not affected by blue prevention drill.  This means Master Roshi Sense is not affected by Blue Prevention Drill.

I hope I cleared those two points up, here's the ratings:

Standard: 4 (db possibly)
TE: 4.5 (this is a game winning mastery)
