– #V-EB12/002EN (VR)
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is bad. 3 is average. 5 is great.
This kind of reminds me of one of those millennial-type people who earned their way to VR status with nothing but their own parent’s money and pretty much a load of hard work except for the parts where the parents did it instead, which is to say 90% of it. You’ll see what I mean when you examine Vanquisher in a nutshell: first ride you’re basically looking at 2 other cards to basically fulfill the 10k bonus to everything. Once you ride to another Vanquisher you won’t need any others, but at the same time it doesn’t sound like the hand-destroying, live on Turn 3, death-on-hit bullshit that Gauntlet Buster Dragon presents.
Having said that, Vanquisher’s support cards are absolute gold which synergise with his ability perfectly, binding themselves, summoning themselves back and murdering enemy cards, multi-attacking via proxy, that’s so good that it’s gotten Cho-ou limited to 2 just to check the deck slightly now that Riviere got nerfed with the errata.
A rather lazy card to be sure, but whatever produces results, I guess. Because it’s not this, it’s the friends he has that make the deck.
We would love more volunteers to help us with our Card of the Day reviews. If you want to share your ideas on cards with other fans, feel free to drop us an email. We’d be happy to link back to your blog / YouTube Channel / etc. 😉
