Blue Style Mastery – Trunks Saga/Fusion Saga Rare/Promo Insert – 149/CA34 Mastery

Power: (This is an MRP of the Trunks Saga Blue Style Mastery.) Your opponent must reach 6 anger to advance a personality level. All of your Blue Style attacks gain, "If successful, raise or lower your opponent's anger 1 level."

I already did this card before so… copy paste.

Well at least we can say Score did something good to this Mastery. But it still isn’t playable enough to make an impact on the environment. The CS and MBS ones are still a lot better. This generally only will work for Dragon’s Victory, but if you are too busy trying to get your own anger up there…

The biggest keys are the Blue Style cards. There just aren’t enough of them that will benefit the Mastery enough. Blue has the neat Terror and Betrayal, but is lacking in really solid attacks. That’s the biggest inherent weakness of the Blue Style, which brings down this Mastery’s rank.

Only the CS generally has the greatest help seeing Blue style cards aren’t needed to make the Mastery good.

Anger lowering is great, but this much anger tech is just plain unnecessary. Just some packed in the deck and not the Mastery is what I would aim for. The CS Mastery would be better.

Now if only there were actually cards that were Blue Attacks that worked in Dragon’s Victory…

New addition: The only thing new that stands out now with this Mastery is Zarbon with it. Zarbon has the built in anger, and the Mastery raises your opponent. Perfect for Dragon’s Victory. In a sense.

Standard: 1.4 out of 5.0 (anti-anger… maybe can level an annoying level 1… DV… yeah right) Tuff Enuff: 1.7 out of 5.0 (Dragon’s Victory…)
Sealed: 3.0 out of 5.0 (Hey, it is a Mastery… can’t hurt) ~matthewlow

Blue Style Mastery TS - Reprint -

The new reprinted blue style mastery was a huge improvement over the old TS mastery. Quite frankly it was the worse mastery ever. It had no use at all. The new one has a better use. It can be used for Dragon's Victory for one. It can also be helpful with raising your opponents anger to 6 and making him get off his level 1. If that ever would happen anyway. Theres not alot to say about this mastery, It was bad from the start and this improvement didnt help blue get any better. Maybe Blue will be better in GT if you play that.

Rating 2.4

Surlio  Blue Style Mastery, Trunks (cosmic Anthology reprint)

Eh, I didn't care much for this card to begin with. It was an alright mastery at best, but a true anger deck can quickly get around 6 anger, even if you do lower it from time to time. The biggest thing that was changed about this card was they gave you the option to raise or lower your opponents anger 1 with every blue style attack. Thats decent, but with the ammount of non-combat hate out in the enviroment, its easier to totally shut down an anger deck than to slow it down. Personally, its a bad attempt at resurrecting an alright mastery.

All formats: 2.5

KingBroly Blue Style Mastery (Cosmic Anthology Reprint)

Standard - 2.5/5
They made this card better. Which really isn't much of an improvement. Well, as I scan over it, I think Dragon's Victory (Which is why they made it anyway I guess). Giving Dragon's Victory a Mastery is really good especially for the Person who wants to be famous by making it playable. Anyway, let's look at the Pros & Cons:

+ Manipulation of Anger with Physical ATKs
+ Keeps your opponent from leveling up easy
- A lot better Masteries out there for DV decks
- A lot of deck teching is needed before being used in Top Play
+ Surprise for all Opponent's to go up against

Tuff Enuff - 2.5/5
Same status here, except you have some less Anti-Anger Anti-DV decks to go up against, if any. Are You Tuff Enuff??? can wipe out your entire strategy here
