Ideal Ego Messiah
– #G-EB03/009 (RRR)
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is bad. 3 is average. 5 is great.
This is one of those cards where people looked at it and said, ‘nah, I’d rather run Alter Ego Neo Messiah instead. Can’t say I blame them. Ideal Ego doesn’t actually work to shut down enemy strategies, which is the whole point of Lock to begin with – instead, it’s mostly just plussing for yourself and then using a G4 Messiah to unlock whatever play you want, but the Messiah deck certainly doesn’t struggle to lock that many of their own units while also shutting down the opponent’s, certainly not to a degree that would make Ideal Ego the strictly better ride.
Nice rear-guard, not a great Vanguard.
