Richard Barbee Red Style Mastery

Power: When you preform a Red Style attack, you may discard the top card of your life deck to make it a focused attack. After you stop an attack with a Red Style card that does not remove itself from the game, place it on the bottom of your life deck.

Okay, as you may have noticed, I chose some cards from older sets rather than choosing cards from the GT series. This week is retro week, and we shall look back on some of the previous sets to see how the cards in those sets affect the meta game from this set.

Today s card is the MBS Red Mastery, a potentially powerful card in some deck types, while weak in others. Let s break it down. You have the ability to focus attacks, which is cool, but the cost of 1 card from your deck just to focus is not. Thus, you will have to focus when it is absolutely necessary to, and other times, just let your attacks be normal. This is fun to play against decks after they have thrown their only defense, which happened to be a Time. Sure, I ll pay the top card to let all my attacks hit and deal mass damage. Problem is, as I ve said, 1 card isn t always worth it.

Then you ve got a nice little effect that all your blocks return to your deck if they aren t removed. This makes for GREAT stasis decks just using that effect of the mastery alone. And, since they return to the bottom, this makes this card even better for a Red Passive Ball deck. Before Red Bolstered Defense got it s errata (probably due to the Rush Mastery, though it is possible that it got it because of this mastery), you could just discard the top card, add it to your hand, and return this card to the bottom of your life deck anyways. Plus, as Red got a ton of active DB support, you can build amazing decks focused just on pulling out the Dballs.

Expanded: 2/5 (3/5 in stasis Dball decks, but only because of the bouncing powers. The top card is not worth it to focus an attack)

Sealed: 5/5 (It s a mastery)
