Broly, Super Saiyan Level 3 – Buu
Saga – Broly Insert Insert/Promo - #3 Personality
Power: Physical attack doing +4 power stages of damage. If the
top card of your discard pile is a Saiyan Style card the first time
you perform this attack each Combat, then this attack may be used a
second time this Combat, and all attacks you perform do +2 life
cards of damage for the remainder of Combat.
If you do it right you can get 5 base damage with this guy. Talk
about a jump in rank and power.
Let’s see… if you look at it right, his power can be: Physical
attack doing +4 power stages and +2 life cards of damage, twice per
combat, and all your other attacks get the +2 life too. What. Talk
about a messed Red Shattering Leap or Saiyan Destiny.
Of course that’s if you have the Saiyan card on top. Otherwise
his attack becomes a normal 4 stage physical that can be 9 if your
opponent is at zero. So use this power when you have a Saiyan card
on top of your discard. Broly wants to lay the beatdown. So let him.
Double attack cards in this game have always been very powerful
due to the inherent card advantage, and Broly is no different. All
you need in this guy’s case is to trap your opponent in combat
without blocks, and you can easily deal 22 life cards with just his
power, not including stuff like Cross Punch and Destiny that might
be lurking in your hand. That should scare your opponent from
attacking until he has a Pikkon’s Leg Catch. One combat can easily
turn the tide of a game, especially as physical beatdown can add up.
His high power level allows him to now generally take full
advantage of his special Broly subset cards like Saiyan Surprise and
Saiyan Cliff Slam. It doesn’t take too long to get here with a
little anger gain in the deck, and thus early control with your
power level, big physicals, and great tech cards can give Broly a
major advantage if used correctly.
The only problems with him are the fact that this level 3 is
really only useful in Saiyan and nothing else. The other level 3 is
not any better. Thus Red anger with Broly dies off after level 2
with no help at all.
And the other problem is the fact that his next two levels are
junk. This level doesn’t give anger anyway, so yeah I guess you
could say who cares, but people who want to gain anger do. And Kid
Buu is bringing Broly cards according to Score’s website, so we can
all pray for good stuff…
Then again you could just sit at level 3 and beat down with
Broly’s big physicals. Makes sense to me.
Standard: 4.2 out of 5.0 (definitely powerful with dual attacks)
Tuff Enuff: 4.3 out of 5.0 (ditto)
Sealed: N/A (you aren’t going to pull Broly)
