Black Crosscheck -
Stop any attack. Your opponent discards the top 3 cards of his life
Finally we are reviewing some GT cards. Black crosscheck is a nice
card for black decks. This works well with the scientific mastery.
Removing cards from the game is always a good thing. And if you
happen to make them remove 5 or more life cards from their deck you
get to capture a dragonball. Its an alright card in expanded since
it is a dual blocker but it is an event card and you have a variety
of choices for dual blocks in expanded. In focused this card is a
must.. pretty much like all the URs in this set.
Black Crosscheck, #247 from Baby
Power: Stop any attack. Your opponent discards the top 3 cards of
his Life Deck.
I have a lot of mixed feeling with this card. For focused, in a
black deck, some people consider it a must, but if you don't have
it, don't sweat it, it really isn't that great. If you do have it
for focused, definitely use it.
For expanded I would say don't even use this card, unless you have a
really expensive deck and want to show it off. In expanded there are
so many better black blocks, and other blocks, that should go in
your deck before this.
Also, in expanded, watch out for focused attacks; in focused you
don't have to worry about that, except for that one blue energy
attack, but who uses blue energy in focused anyway? Some other
things to think about is that this card is an event card (combat)
and can be sphered in expanded, and It's the inside that counts can
be used in focused to mess you up.
Expanded - 3.1 (probably just above average in expanded)
Focused - 4.5 (one of the best black blocks in focused)
Black Crosscheck (Event Combat)
Stop any attack. Your opponent discards the top 3 cards of their
Wow! What a break! I'm back on the CotD helm. Anyway, onto Black
Crosscheck. This is an Ultra Rare? It looks like a Common (According
to this set) as there are many cards like it; some that stop any
attack; some discarding cards. But, this is a Combo I guess. Maybe
an Uncommon? This card OWNZ with Black Science Mastery. Remove the
top-3 cards of your opponent's deck. It's not removed from the game,
so get a little regeneration going & you've got your opponent on the
run. I play this card with General Rildo Black Science. It's a Combo
Discard Deck, with this card ruling them. Anyway, I have 3, and this
card is sensational here.
Okay, this is a card every Black deck has been waiting for. Why?
Anti-Supreme West Kai, DragonBall, and possibly anger. I've found
that this card is pretty sweet against opponents, if you don't get
TES'd by it. Then, you have Scout Maneuver/Goku's Blinding Strike,
and any other mini-discarder. So, if you can play it, it's great,
but you might not get a chance.
GT Ultra Rare # 247
Combat Event Card
Hmmm, did GT get a bunch of horrible rares or what? Black Crosscheck
was definately one of the better ones, and fits great into any black
deck, however for it to be an ultra rare, there are normal cards
with much better abilities.
Stopping any attack is nice, but in expanded you still have to watch
for focused attacks, and in GT, you have to watch for Blue Draining
Kamehameha and other such cards. The after effect is nice, but not
all that great. Perhaps with Docter Myuu with Shu as an Ally, but
Discard decks have to be very careful as it is.
The card is alright in my opinion, but there are better omni blocks
out there, and in expanded, black has some that are definately much
better than this one. The fact that its a free small peck off of the
deck is nice, but discards can't win the game if all thats left is
Overall, 3.5 of 5. Decent, but not too powerful.
Probably the best UR in GT, though Red Toe Pierce and Orange Fishing
Drill give it a run for it's money. It is basically a Red
Counterstrike, save that it blocks anything, and does not remove
itself from the game. That is good on it's own, even with the
possibility that it can be Sphered. You may run it in Expanded,
though I feel Black probably has better blocks, and there is always
Sphere (and Broly's Might, and any other irreverant combat/event
hate) to worry about. In focused, it is amazing. There is currently
next to no event hate, no way to stop one, and only one 'focused'
attack, so if you are playing Black, you run this, period. Being
able to get it back for seconds, either through Rejuvenation or any
of the random 'shuffle a card back in' cards is even better. It also
works with either mastery, though Scientific fits more.
In limited, you run this. It is nearly three cards of damage,
guarenteed, and doing that while stopping an attack should be a
FOCUSED - 4.5 out of 5 (Amazing now, though there is some minor ways
EXPANDED 3 out of 5 (Black simply has better blocks, and there is
more ways to deal with combat/event cards)
LIMITED 5 out of 5 (You run this, period, unless everyone gets a
Trunks Energy Sphere, or the equivalent for entering the tournament)
