Enjoy this card for the next month, because it’s getting nerfed!
No seriously, the main draw to Brandt Ringer, just like G3 Brandt, is that you could sit on 4 damage and be assured that a crit won’t kill you, meaning the VG was only going to do a maximum of 1 damage. Once Force 2 exists for English meta this won’t have quite such a fun time. Aside from that, the other skills that reverse the triggers are pretty funny, especially Heals. Draws now force discards instead, and Front Trigger’s power only applies to the back row.
Awkwardness to play due to being G4 aside, it’s not that those reversals aren’t good. They are. But just like lower Brandt, score nothing and what you have is diminishing returns. It’s nice to threaten but you’d probably appreciate a threat you can follow up on more. It’s not like a live on Turn 3 on-hit like Dragonic Overlord.
Hilarious now but it won’t last. Not a bad card by any stretch but don’t get attached.
