upcoming article is a little delayed. I have
been tending to some other stuff, hopefully by
the end of the week. Anyways I still had enough
time to catch that Shaman King episode last
weekend. Kinda a cliff hanger they leave you at,
huh? Did Ren (Len in the 4KidsTV version) go to
"The land of the no longer living?" The reviews
this week are based on our dieing Chinese
friend, Ren. So since we hardly did (if any)
card reviews for Ren, let's start with "Furious
"Furious Response" is a rare strike card. More
commonly placed in Ren/Len themed decks, it
contains a melee strike trait. The card cost is
1 green and 1 red furyoku. A bit expensive, but
you got to use your red furyoku somewhere!
Running more than 2 of this card will kill your
furyoku resources, so build your deck smart.
Looking at the rest of "Furious Response," we
see a huge intercept. An 8 intercept can
counterattack against almost anything your
opponent sends your way. If you flip this, and
you got the furyoku resources, you will use it.
Where this card towers in intercept, it is very
weak in force. A 3 force is just bad in any
game, unless your opponent sends it to you.
Today's card effect reads; "If your opponent's
attack is 3 Force or less, +4 Force." On the
small chance you are playing somebody with a
completely horrible deck with strikes with 3
force and no reinforcement you won't be using
"Furious Response's" effect very often. There's
a chance you could use "Furious Response" to
counter your opponent's "Furious Response," but
that's pretty unlikely. So the effect is
basically there for looks. It would be nice to
get +4 force, but it just won't happen. So with
that being said, why give your opponent a free
counterattack by giving them a 3 force strike.
The 8 intercept is nice and all, but you are
going to be losing a red furyoku, and not take
too much ground.
