Orange Training Drill
Ė GT Shadow Dragon Saga Rare - #210 Non-Combat Ė Drill
Power: When your MP advances or loses a level, none of your other
Drills besides this Drill and "Orange Focusing Drill" are discarded.
First off Iíd like to drop a little note that Grand Kai Invitational
is tomorrow ^_^. If Pojo posts this on the right day, I should be on
a plane right now.
And back to the cardÖ this one is actually pretty nice. Orange Drill
decks, most notably with the MBS Mastery, should embrace this card
with open arms because of the sheer protection it brings.
Letís first note that this card basically patches up Orange Focusing
Drillís biggest weakness; changing levels. That was the easiest way
to scoop Orangeís setup to get around Orange Focusing Drill, seeing
it protected against basically everything other than City In Turmoil
and a couple Dragon Balls (and a couple more cards). Seeing that
Focusing Drill protects Training Drill, you can have a nice lock
with both cards protecting each other. If you do level, just pop a
drill to your Mastery, pull both of these back out, and youíre good
This also allows you to have a different twist in Drill decks, being
able to level in decks when it might be advantageous. Characters
like Dodoria and SWK come to mind. Drill decks have normally been
stuck at level 1, but now there are other options to mess around
with, opening up a plethora of interesting options try out.
Protection, reliability, strategy, and tons of options. Is there
anything you canít ask for in an Orange Drill? Expect to see this
drill in all Orange Drill decks, Focused using Technique Mastery,
and Expanded using MBS, Technique, and anything under the sun.
Expanded: 4.8 out of 5.0 (gives much needed reliability to Drill
Focused: 4.5 out of 5.0 (ditto)
Sealed: 1.0 out of 5.0 (seeing you probably wonít be pulling very
many drills, under assumption, this wonít do you much good)
Orange Training Drill - Non-Combat Drill
When your MP advances or rises a level, none of your other Drills
besides this Drill and "Orange Focusing Drill" are discarded.
Okay, if you thought Orange Focusing Drill was wrong, then what
about this card!? This just improves Orange decks by leaps and
bounds, especially Supreme West Kai decks. It might seem a little
hard, but with Orange Style Mastery from Buu Saga and Orange
Technique Mastery, this is just wrong. Majin Buu's Gift, and other
NC's that didn't get around Orange Focusing Drill get around this
card. Attach to this, keep it in play for another level. Get out
Orange Focusing Drill again, the fun starts again!
Focused, even though it doesn't have as much FUN Drills, it can
still be annoying. I mean, many allies, many drills, with this in
play, the fun won't stop! In Expanded, with more deadly drills that
are insane, Orange gets another un-needed boost.
Expanded: 5/5 (3 should be in there right now)
Focused: 3.75/5 (Even though not as powerful, but a big boost for
Orange Training Drill- Orange
Finally got what it wanted this entire time. Red got Meditation
Drill and Orange wondered why it was left behind. This will be
played in most Orange decks as I see it. Just another way to
protect your drills. Makes Winter Countryside a little worse I
Expanded- 4 of 5
Focused- 3 of 5 ( drills not as good
here and no Are You Tuff Enuff to level opponents)
