Frieza, Resurrected Level 3 – GT Super 17 Saga Uncommon - #72 Main Personality

Power: Energy attack doing 11 life cards and 3 power stages of damage. Costs 2 power stages to perform. For the rest of Combat, when you perform an attack with a Frieza Named card, your opponent discards 2 cards from his hand.

Wow. This Frieza Level 3 wipes out a lot of level 3s because of the amazing hand advantage potential. Granted it depends greatly on Frieza named cards, but you’re obviously playing Black Energetic and using 4 Black Frieza’s Fierce Detonation, 4 Black Frieza’s Destructo Disk, 4 Black Frieza’s Left Chop, and possibly packing Black Ki Surges and Frieza’s Vengeance and Cell and Frieza’s Dual Tech right? The last two are iffy but the first 3 are screaming to be abused with his level 3.

Not only does Frieza own an extremely strong attack that would be a nice ally in Aura decks but his effect is what is the key. Hand size now a days hovers at 5 to 6 cards or so, depending on how many drawing effects you employ. Black Energetic cuts it down by one for most combats, so throwing out just one Frieza attack after this will often cut it down to just 1 or 2 cards in hand, keeping in mind your opponent might use up a card on a block. Hand disruption has always been very powerful, and in just two phases, you can really turn on the clock for decks that want to combo badly.

Keep in mind that Frieza’s card power does NOT discard two cards. Performing the attack comes before secondary effects. This is a common misconception. He’d be pathetically broken if that was the case.

If only Frieza had a good level 4. This really cuts down his playing time in Expanded because his level 3 is just amazingly good, but he needs the level 4 so he can’t lose to random 1-3 anger decks. Since anger is not a problem in Focused, he dominates more in this area. Then again Black does regardless; Frieza just has a nasty level 3 with nasty support cards he can run 4 of. Try out Black Energetic Frieza; never know what you can come up with.

Expanded: 4.2 out of 5.0 (very nice level 3; if only there was a good level 4)
Focused: 4.7 out of 5.0 (very dangerous level and decent ally as well)
Sealed: 2.5 out of 5.0 (if you pull Frieza, then this would be good; otherwise you probably won’t be able to run him as an ally)
 
BoBo
Frieza lvl 3- The best frieza level made so far in both formats, this is where you aim to be in Frieza Energetic as it presses the advantage of black's hand disruption
 
Expanded- If youre Frieza youre probably using this lvl 3. 3.5/5
 
Focused- Frieza is more playable but with less Frieza named cards you cant take advantage of the effect as much. 4/5 since Frieza is just more suited for focused
