Si "Hitman" Parkes Triad <> Luornu Durgo
Cost 1
Flight, Cosmic

Having a girlfriend who can split into three would be great for the <ahem> obvious reasons. But seriously, think about the downsides. How long would you have to spend going shopping? It would never end. And then you’d have to talk about feelings all the time, in triplicate. And your house would be filled with shoes. Every room would just be shoes. And you would never, ever get one second in the bathroom. And she would literally take months to get ready for a night out. I’m not kidding it would take months at a time. And all you would ever get to watch on TV would be The OC, Sex and The City or Bridget Jones’ fricking Diary. And the worst of it? The fear-inducing, gut-clenching, pray-for-the-end-of-all-things worst of it? Imagine having to put up with three of her at “that time of the month”.

Yeah forget that man.

Triad is the only character card that is limited to three copies per deck. She’s not an army version, but she’s not unique either. Her effect, by the way, is awesome. Put her in play, discard a card and you can get two copies of her from your deck. That’s awesome. Or in Yugioh “ZOMGMETA+1CARDADVANTAGE+1HAKZORS!” Or in English, “You get an extra card in your hand, and you’ve eliminated any chance of having to draw a level 1 character late in the game”.

If you don’t get her for your first recruit phase, then it doesn’t really matter, because Legion strategy encourages you to under-drop characters. And Triad is great for this purpose. Since she has cosmic she fits neatly into the Legion’s “remove a cosmic counter” theme and you can also add her into any team attack to help with the Legion’s second theme as well. (Since all Legionnaires share flight, this makes planning attacks fairly easy).

There really isn’t any reason not to put her in a Legion deck, and she has great swarm potential for non-mono decks as well. In other words, Triad is awesome.

Times three.

Sealed: 2
Constructed: 4

Okay, this is a cool Legionnaires card that I like

Luornu Durgo
Triad is not unique
When Triad comes into play, you may discard a card. If you do, search your deck for up to two cards named Triad, reveal them, put them into your hand, and shuffle your deck.
A deck can have no more than three cards named Triad.

This is a very unique card, considering that it’s not unique. First of all, this is the only card in the game where you can have only three copies of it in a deck instead of the usual four. I suppose that’s fair, because the ability is very good. When you play Triad, you can discard a card and grab 2 more Triads. Sounds to me like a Thunder Dragon, instant +1. Of course, it’s a Thunder Dragon that’s team stamped, but it’s still cool. And since Legionnaires is about swarming purposes (I think), having more characters is good for you. And having that cosmic with no cosmic ability will come in handy for those random “remove a cosmic counter” costs the team has.

Modern Age: 4/5
Silver Age: 4/5
Golden Age: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

I like…

Triad, Luornu Durgo (Legionnaires)

1 cost, 1 ATK, 1 DEF, Flight

Well. This card is unique in its non-uniqueness... its the first card (as far as I can tell) to impose a restriction on how many of it can be in the deck. LESS than 4. But when you play her, you can get all 3. This is a pretty decent ability as it can guarantee you your turn 1 and 2. She has Cosmic, so she is useable with last weeks card fairly well. And to boot, her 'search' ability can thin your deck, and gives you a chance to reshuffle your deck to boot. I don't know much about the legionnaires, but I like this card in and of itself.

Sealed: 2/5 Not so amazing here. She is uncommon, so you will most likely not see more than one of her.

Constructed: 4/5 Cheap character, cheap cosmic, cheap deck thinning... and with flight! All in all, a pretty solid (if weak in stats) character. :)
