This guy's a prat. Just look at that name. How
could anyone with that name not be a prat?
Obviously his parents had high hopes, and while
he definitely does help the Janus out, it's
really not near what Ekkyon Wayfarer, Faceless
King, or Tlamexic Battlelord do for their
First up: Stats. 6V getting 3 6|8 is actually
pretty decent for Valor. The only Janus
creatures that can beat that are Knight of
Strife and Joy and Jack-in-the-Box, and, since
no one plays Jack-in-the-Box, leaves you with
just the other knight. All things considered,
Sir Glorious is about as close to rock solid as
you can get, which is a good thing.
Next, his ability. Bolster is pretty nifty,
because all of the Madness members of the Legion
could definitely use an extra 2 Defense points.
That actually brings a lot of them into Valor
territory, and let's face it, a pair of walking
scissors with 4 Defense is pretty scary.
However, his ability is wasted on the other
Valor members of Janus, because he'll usually
bring their Defense above their life, which
typically makes the decision making process of
your opponent a bit easier. That is not good.
Another problem is that, quite frankly, Sir
Glorious is boring. He adds 2 Defense to his
Janus buddies, and swings his sword for 3 power.
Whoopdy-friggin-doo. Even a Blade Advance or
Skirmish would have made him the best Lineage
leader ever, and he'd only lose that spot when
the Lost get some more members so the King can
Rally them as you please. As that isn't the
case, we are left hoping that Chrysotic Plague
brings us a good leader, and looking at the
Thrice-Crowned Androgyne, we might just have it
if my hunch is correct.
That's just speculation though, so pay no mind.
Constructed: 2.5/5 for now, 4/5 if CP holds it's
promise and brings us some good Janus guys to
Bolster. Doesn't do much on his own, but he's
definitely solid, and a wonderful team player.
Limited: 2/5 At the very least, he has decent
stats for his cost, unlike Monday's All-Seeing
Mage. However, the fact that he won't have many
people to Bolster does make him little better
than a vanilla figure, which, as vanilla Janus
go, Mirrorman beats soundly.
