What's up, you guys?! It's about time we wrapped up
our Nuns & Prophets week with a couple of prophets:
Clan: Oracle Think Tank
[AUTO](VC/RC):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit attacks
a vanguard, if you have an «Oracle Think Tank» vanguard,
you may pay the cost. If you do, declare an «Oracle
Think Tank» card name, and reveal the top card of your
deck. If the revealed card is the card you declared, put
that card into your hand, and if it is not, choose a
card from your damage zone, and turn it face up.
...I think if there ever was a definition of a, "free
effect" in Vanguard, there would be a picture of this
card next to it. Stellar Magus has a nice 9000 Power
with an effect which activates when you attack the
Vanguard (note that it doesn't have to actually hit the
Vanguard but just declaring an attack on it). At the
cost of a Counterblast, you can guess what the top card
of the deck is. If you guess it right, then you get to
add that card to your hand. If you guess it wrong, then
the card stays on top and you unflip a damage. The fact
that this card can forgive your faux pas is pretty nice
is something to acknowledge as if you have more than one
Stellar Magus on the field that it essentially
guarantees you a free card at the cost of a Counterblast
is nice (as the first guess would miss and unflip the
damage you paid, which would have the second one know
what the top card is and add it to the hand) and is
actually pretty fun to just guess what might happen
next. To easier assure your guesses are correct, that's
why there are cards like Circle Magus, Battle Sister,
Cocoa and even CEO Amaterasu to have you peek at what's
If combined with the correct synergy, Stellar Magus
can really live up to her name and be a really
interesting card to have in your deck should you have
the room for her.
Art: 3/5 (I love how out of all of the Magus cards, the
one with a forgiving effect is a young prophet...kinda
has a sense of naivety to it)
Next Time: Kinda sounds like a certain Synchro monster
from Yugioh that's been banned for so long...XD
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
4th this week is by far the
best card to come out of the Extra Booster, Stellar
Magus. When she attacks, you CB1 to guess the top card
of the deck. Get it right, it goes to your hand. Wrong,
and your cost is refunded by being flipped face-up
Now THIS is what I call OTT
support. Her best point is that she isn't restricted to
her own Magus archetype, so you can pair her up with the
original and the best; CEO Amaterasu. Now, it doesn't
matter whether the top card is not a trigger or not;
Stellar can just net the card for CB1, basically netting
you about 5 cards a game if she's left alone. That's
pretty scary coupled with CEO's increased chances of a
trigger every turn.
Of course, even without
her, there really is no penalty for failure if you guess
wrong, so you could just use her as a stand-alone card
to predict the top card, then use the new information to
plan your plays out. But her best place is alongside CEO
to net your mad plusses as well as smack the opponent
around with your increased trigger rate.
She's one hell of a card.
If nothing else, get EB07 for her.
