Power: Remove 4 cards in your opponentís Discard Pile from the game.
He doesnít look like much from the outside right? I mean, wow, weak
PL, low PUR, and doesnít have a decent attack or anything. So why
the heck would you run someone like this? He wonít even be useful in
Key is, heíll be helpful in many games where discard pile removal is
important. Blue MBS? Iíll remove 4 of those Blue cards. Saiyan
Supreme? 4 Saiyan cards gone, looks like you wonít be leveling.
Cellís Presence in the discard? Gone. Orange MBS just discarded a
Focusing Drill? Looks like it is gone forever.
We all know the power of Majin Buuís Heel Kick, and Sugoro is pretty
much a Heel Kick every turn. Sure Emperor Pilaf is a better version
of Sugoro because he gives allies a bonus as well, but regardless,
Sugoro is amazing as a hero. It makes the discard pile an unsafe
place to store cards for your opponent, making him haste his
rejuvenation which can work to your advantage.
Thing is, you need to play Sugoro right. Removing the right cards
can make or break many situations. Manipulate that bottom of the
discard or remove a vital card in the discard? Your call. GT runs on
the discard pile a lot, and with Sugoro around, your opponent might
just be sticking around on level 1 a lot longer than he anticipated.
Expanded: 3.9 out of 5.0 (discard piles important, but not in every
Focused: 4.2 out of 5.0 (discard pile are necessary to level, easily
Sealed: 4.9 out of 5.0 (dude heís an ally, enough said)
Sugoro Level 1
Helpful. The discard pile is a resource in GT, like power stages,
hand size, etc, and keeping them from having good cards in the
discard pile helps you win. He is also a good thing to push damage
to, or combo with cards that only discard (from hand, or setups,
allies, or drills), to remove annoying cards from the game. Not
broken, but fairly solid.
He's helpful in limited, alot more so, as leveling helps just a tiny
bit when you're working from a small resource of cards.
Expanded 2.5/5 (still alot of anger decks running around)
Focused 4/5 (hurts Saiyan Supreme, and is money for Black style)
Limited 3.5/5 (see above)
Sugoro Lvl 1
GT Uncommon #171
This guy makes for a very interesting ally. The fact that you can
keep a GT deck from leveling by just a few cards is just wrong. In
Expanded, you can copy him with oolong, which is 8 cards being
removed from a discard pile a turn. Nice.
The power is alright, but not ultra powerful. You can prevent your
opponent from using several of those nice cards that they've already
used. Help make Fatherly Advice and Expectant Trunks totally useless
as you get rid of what your opponent was going to pull back.
Discard manipulation is a powerful thing, especially against a well
built deck. Those 4 cards could disrupt a powerful combo that they
were just about to utilize.
Focused: 3.5 of 5
Expanded: 3.0 of 5 (there are better allies)
Sealed: 4.2 of 5 (really nice here)
