Black Broly Blast – GT Baby Saga – Broly
Second Coming subset Promo – M3 Combat – Energy
Power: Energy attack doing 8 life cards of damage. 3: Your opponent
shuffles his hand into his Life Deck and draws the same number of
What the stupid broken goodness. Here’s why.
Back in the Z days, people lost a lot of games because they would
draw a random top 3. That’s why Roshi and Android 18 were so
dominant. The ability to choose what you wanted over someone who
couldn’t meant you had a much better percentage at a better deck,
and likewise that gave you a major advantage.
Now in GT rules, you choose your hand from 6 cards. This card
generally makes it even worse than Z rules. The whole hand, even the
cards you were holding, gets shuffled in and then you draw a whole
totally random hand. More often than not you’ll end up with a ton of
unusable cards and a hand that is much worse. Then all your opponent
has to do is wail on you and end the game right then and there.
Also note that this is a nice energy attack for 8. Shuffle that
hand, and it isn’t impossible for your opponent not to draw a block
for the attack. Even better.
This often will break through many solid hands in decks like Dragon
Ball, allowing beatdown decks to breakthrough the stranglehold. This
card is more than necessary in basically any Black deck you run,
except maybe Dragon Ball decks themselves which revolve around
getting out of combat instead of staying in.
If you’re a non-Tokui Waza deck, try to fit this in if you can. If
you’re Black, fit this in. The odds are in your favor.
Expanded: 4.9 out of 5.0 (random hands for opponent = good)
Focused: 4.8 out of 5.0 (ditto)
Sealed: 5.0 out of 5.0 (sealed is random anyway) ~matthewlow
Black Broly Blast
This card can, at least for a single
combat, end the setup involved in DBZ/GT, and turn it back into
old school DBZ, where you never knew what you were drawing off
the top of your deck. You enter with a monster attack hand, and
toss this first out the gate. Your opponent's hand of blocks
and other disruption goes right back in, and he/she has to draw
off the top of his/her deck, and hope they pull something just
as good. Randomness, ho!
Simple money. If you are playing
black in Focused or Expanded, you run three (or four, if Broly)
of this, period. You might occasionally give them a better hand
than they lost, but more often than not, you will take away a
good to decent hand from them, and give them back something much
less helpful for their current situation. In limited, less
effective, but still, a good random draw off them can win the
EXPANDED 4/5 (it can even screw
up Dragonball decks, so it is actually a decent Expanded card)
FOCUSED 5/5 (no bad here, none)
LIMITED 4/5 (makes the randomness
of sealed deck play even more random)
Black Broly Blast
This card is one of my favorite,
even though it abuses a mechanic which I generally dislike. The
card is a solid energy and has the chance of totally ruining
your opponents plans, including blocking the attack. They can
tutor all they want, but your Broly Blast will send it back for
a random card. Thats exactly what i dislike about it. Random.
Random is like a coin flip.Coin flips don't fit with skill
winning games.The again, when used with Bardock this card has to
be used with skill. So to justify me liking this card I'll say
that it just gets rid of cards which have been saved or tutored
and exchanges them for anything else. After all, if your
opponent has the best hand you would be willing to give him
other good cards in place of it just to get rid of a specific
few. 5/5 in both Focused and Expanded. Biased, yes, but more so,
