Saiyan Style Mastery – Buu Saga
Rare - #146

Power: You cannot win by the Most Powerful Personality Victory. All of your Saiyan Style attacks gain "Raise your anger 1 level. Gain 3 power stages." During the Rejuvenation Step, if you put any Saiyan Style cards back into your Life Deck, raise your anger 2 levels and your Main Personality gains 4 power stages.

This wasn’t the Mastery everyone thought it was going to be. It is interesting, and can be used quite efficiently.

The inability to win by anger allows many people to put their level 5 into consideration about how good it really is. This Mastery has pretty fast anger gain that can get up to level 5, if only you work it right.

I can see this Mastery being played in those decks that want to use some really good high level cards like Trunks the Battler, Trunks the Powerful, and Goku, Super Saiyan 3. This provides the quick way to get there, and with the help of cards like Saiyan Destiny and Saiyan Headshot (which just got destroyed), it shouldn’t be too hard.

Cards like Play Fighting shine with this Mastery; the latter clause might actually be used pretty often. The problem is the fact it is limit one per deck and thus won’t happen very often.

With all the anti-anger around (Victorious Drill, Cell’s Threatening Position, etc) it won’t be easy to get up there quickly. Red probably will have a faster time unless Saiyan gets some card advantage. Goku has some built in card advantage with his power, and he’d be the best candidate to be used with this Mastery. His CS and Buu Saga levels work the best.

North Kai has to watch it when he sees this Mastery; the wrong turn off might be giving the victory away. Remember that…

This Mastery isn’t bad and can be used quite efficiently with the right character. Many of the Saiyans have quite strong higher levels and will benefit a lot from this Mastery. Cell also comes to mind. Broly as well.

Saiyan Energy might be somewhat useful with the gain of stages. While there aren’t very many good ones out there, the Broly Subset as well as some new Buu ones and a few old ones can be quite useful.

This Mastery has a lot to see in the future for sure. If used right, it can be extremely deadly with the quick leveling, maybe once or twice a turn.

Standard: 3.5 out of 5.0 (no ability to win with anger, but has amazing physical beatdown power)

Tuff Enuff: 3.5 out of 5.0 (you’ll level quick with AYTE anyway, but getting to level 5 can be devastating)

Sealed: 2.9 out of 5.0 (a Mastery is good, but you won’t be able to use it much)

Friday - Saiyan Style Mastery (Majin Buu Saga)

This, is one of my favorite masteries ever. This mastery has some amazing power, and there are many things you could do with it :D..

You could...make a Saiyan Energy deck (yes, a saiyan energy deck). There are quite a few powerful Saiyan Energy Attacks, and they will gain you anger, and cost absolutely nothing, in fact you'll gain a stage (from the mastery). And, since saiyan has so much card drawing, theres a good chance you'll level like, the first combat :p. You could also make a Saiyan Physical beatdown deck, and deliver smackith as you level, and get to level 5 with Goku :D, funs tuff..anyway..

Standard: 2.1
Tuff Enuff: 4.8
Friday-Saiyan Style Mastery (Buu)

Sweetness! The Buu masteries are nothing short of amazing! Buu saga Goku decks will be amazing with this mastery-get to level 5 using the effects, then unleash your powers! Aside from the anger raising element, the power ups also help. Overall, this is a great card. Not as good as the new Freestyle mastery, but still very powerful.

Standard: 3.5/5
TE: 4/5 (The inability to win by MPPV doesn`t hurt here)

Heh, finally a decent, not-too-broken Saiyan Mastery. Good job, Score!
Well, I really like this mastery...I like it a lot. heck, I might even consider running Saiyan now, something I've promised myself I'd never do because of it's cheapness.
This mastery allows you to get up to your higher levels without doing so to cheaply win by anger. That I like.
Also, it's good for both physical AND energy decks...physical for the obvious reason of gaining level to get to higher power levels, and energy for the obivous reason of gaing power stages.
Lastly, I'd like to say...I never thought that I'd ever see a Saiyan mastery encouraging the skipping of combat. Wow.
Standard: 4/5...I like this new mastery, I like it a LOT. Only bad thing is, some people will complain that it doesn't have any card-advantage.
TuffEnuff: 3/ loses a lot of power here, because you already can't win by MPPV, and you already have the anal-loads of anger with AYTE and such. Still good, though.
