Saiyan Rush

1: For this turn, your Saiyan styled attacks deal +X damage. X = the number of personalities your opponent has. Combat - Event

What more can be said about this card that hasn’t already been said a few weeks ago? It’s a staple in Saiyan beats (the only viable Saiyan deck out there). A 1 cost card for a worst case scenario of +1 and a best and frequently common case scenario of +3 to all attacks. In the right Saiyan deck, this card can force your opponent to say gg. Run this if you run Saiyan. Nuff Said. I’ll even score this.

X/5 (X is equal to the amount of cheap attacks in your hand, Paid Offs you have used, and Saiyan Energy Gatherings and Happinesses you have in play combined)

PS – If you haven’t gotten the subliminal messaging, you must run this card in Saiyan.
 
GDK Saiyan Rush

This has to be one of my favorite Saiyan cards. For one stage, you make all of your Saiyan style attacks do 1-3 more damage. Add on the Saiyan Mastery, and you are doing 3+ with your Saiyan style attacks. If you like the Saiyan style, add at least two copies in your deck, as the added damage really makes the game end faster, and against most other decks, the added speed leaves them in the dust.

5/5
 
Justin Cardoza Saiyan Rush Review:


Saiyan Rush is one of the best new Saiyan cards in the new Showdown set. The Saiyan style is all about doing as much damage as possible with all of your attacks. This card simply reinforces this strategy.

Most decks these days will most doubtedly consist of AT LEAST two personalities. That's not to say that there are also plenty of decks that play three personalities. This just makes this card even more abusable than it already seems. For only one stage (which can be big, as small costing cards help you to easier manage your power stages) you can have each and every attack that you perform do +3 damage, on top of the +2 damage that you will recieve from you mastery. Small attack that do almost no damage but provide stage gain will now do 5 damage AS WELL as give you even more stages to perform more attacks.

This card will definitely be a staple in many Saiyan decks throughout the next few sets. Even then, I doubt that this card will be topped by anything else. It can only get better as personalities like "Captain Ginyu" are released!

Overall Rating: 4/5

There's always a chance that you won't get this cards full potential, thus making the score lower.

Art: 4/5

Looks sweet in foil! =)
