Weird as hell. So obvious advantage is that it can add free fodder to the hand, and then you can reveal Shizukus to seal certain guarding. The bad news is that she only inflicts one damage, so on 4 the opponent is permitted to cross their fingers and hope a Critical Trigger won’t kill them. The biggest flaw however is the Shizuku deck itself. I don’t know if you intend to run multiple G0 Shizuku just for the full gamut of guard sealing, but aside from that, the RGs are sorely lacking in actual pressure, since in order to make this more consistent you must cut better cards for Shizukus, who are generally bad.

Effect is scary but the deck itself lacks punch. Not Tier 1 by any stretch.



What’s up, Rogue Squad?!  You know, Saikyo and I have tendencies of disagreeing about certain things (I mean, we’re talking about a Granblue main and a Kagero main trying to agree, and it’s just that, fire and water…love ya, Saikyo ;P ), but I do have to agree with Saikyo on one thing about Shizuku: This card is weird as hell.  I mean, yeah, she gets the whole niche of looking at the top amount of cards for either Grade 3’s or Shizuku cards (which are all different grades, but only one different Shizuku per grade), but the whole revealing Shizukus and Grade 3’s for power and very specific guard restrictions that are dependent on the Shizukus you show kinda makes Mystery Freeze Dragon look tamed for his RNG.  Shizuku as a deck can only do so much, and if this is the best it can do, then this is just okay at best.
