Omega Shenron, Unstoppable

The lvl 6 Goku's opposite number. Instead of card draw, he nukes the hand, and, while, it looks effective, it might just not be as.

You can level to him in a hurry with Black Energetic, but he cannot use the Saiyan tricks Goku gets to level, so he loses a step there. But reach this level, throw the power first, and at best, they have one card in hand (after stopping the energy), or they take 25 life, and have two cards to work with (or four or three, assuming one of the cards they pitch is a Hercule's Crescent Punch). Either way, it can really ruin a combat for someone.

Problems? Them entering. A Blitz deck will run it's hand down to nothing before you can ever get an attack phase, allies could care less (they will keep their drainer in hand, or shoot it first), and getting slammed with a Crescent Punch hurts (or having them discard one or two to the power).

Overall, he is strong, and looks effective, but in this one's opinion, if you are going to put alot of effort into leveling to a level 6, you should use the Goku, as it is just alot better, on both the power, and the lower levels.

In Expanded, it isn't even a consideration for anything other than anger. You will never get to the level by the time ball beats you. In Sealed, if you manage to pull his starter set, his 4, and his 5, well, you are pretty lucky.

Focused 4/5 (good, but just not as good as goku)

Expanded 2/5

Limited 1/5

Omega Shenron, Unstoppable Level 6 – Shadow Dragon Saga Ultra Rare - #242 Personality

This is sort of like the previous card, but he’s not as potent. Sure he balances out Goku, but his lower levels don’t have the versatility like Goku, not to mention there are good ways to get around him like Hercule’s Crescent Punch. He’ll have a much better time hitting attacks with the discarding down to two before a block is used, but he also needs to be used first action to be most effective (to shoot a 5 card hand down to two).

If used correctly, the card advantage can really help. Key is, you have to really use him right. If you do, it might spell good game for opponents. You need to get here as well… Black Energetic major hand kill anyone?

Expanded: 4.1 out of 5.0 (if only his lower levels were better suited for this format)
Focused: 4.5 out of 5.0 (discarding is good)
Sealed: Yeah right.
