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
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.
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.
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.
Looks sweet in foil! =)
