What's up, you guys?! So to wrap up our Nuns &
Prophets week, we're looking at a card that combos
really well with yesterday's card:
Clan: Oracle Think Tank
[ACT](RC):[Soul Blast (1)] If you have an «Oracle Think
Tank» vanguard, draw a card, and put this unit on the
top of your deck.
...a pretty simple effect that's only really for the
Magus sub-clan. Briolette Magus has 9,000 Power, which
is always good, with a rear-guard only effect, which is
kind of a bummer but for good reason. During your main
phase, you're allowed to Soul Blast 1 to draw a card and
put this card on the top of your deck. This all but
assures that you will guess correctly with Crescent,
Stellar and Pentagonal Magus and will either give nice
power bonuses in Crescent and Pentagonal or a nice hand
maintainence with Stellar. One thing that I will mention
is that if you're in a dire situation where you need
Triggers more than a guaranteed prediction and don't
have a Stellar Magus to add this back to the hand before
the Vanguard attack, then DO NOT use this effect until
you are sure that you can afford the guaranteed fact
that your first Drive Check will not be a Trigger.
Another nice combo with this, ironically, is with Battle
Sister, Cocoa. Why? It's simple really. First, use
Briolette Magus' ability to draw a card and place this
on top of the deck. Afterwards, call Cocoa and use her
ability to peek at the top card of your deck. Obviously,
it's going to be Briolette Magus, and you can use
Cocoa's effect to put Briolette Magus to the bottom of
the deck and have her out of the way to make a better
chance of pulling off more than one Trigger.
Overall, Briolette is a pretty solid card, but I
wouldn't go overboard with using her effect, so use her
Art: 4/5 (It honestly does look a bit like Brionac from
Yugioh as far as color scheme goes...XP)
Next Time: Whatever Pojo's twisted/awesome mind decides
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
Wrapping this week up is
the bouncy castle of OTT, Briolette Magus. By
soulblasting 2, you draw a card, then she goes from the
rear-guard to the top of the deck.
As a concept, I like her,
but I don't know where she could reasonably go. The
obvious answer is a Magus deck, but I can't recommend it
owing to the Magus deck as a whole doing CEO's trick
slower or worse. And if you intend to abuse the
Stellar/CEO combo I talked about yesterday, then where's
the room? Stellar takes up room, Silent Tom takes up
room (and thanks to the fact we have Crescent Magus to
couple with Tom for 16k+ columns there's no excuse not
to run him now), and Susanoo takes up the rest of it.
Outside of that, as a tech,
I suppose she can add another condition to activate
Stellar, but I wouldn't count on it. She's neat as an
idea, but I'd wait until the Magus deck as a whole stops
sucking so hard and she can fit snugly in.
