...you can't handle a PG to the face even if you meet your admittedly strict requirements, so I'd rather have Minerva as my anti-sack engine instead should I not get CEO.

 

2/5

Fun tidbit: Nyx was a Greek Goddess of the Night.
 
Nyx here is a Type 2 Legion.  Her non-legion skill basically lets you draw a card by soul blasting 3 if you don't have a big hand.  Pretty easy to do for Genesis, especially with her mate, which we may or may not get into later.
 
The Legion skill is pretty nice, sadly, even if you do use it, you only get to power up by 5000 and 1 critical until the end of the turn.  Bushiroad, what is with your translators?
 
But, the bigger problem is one all Genesis units have to suffer through.  Both Minerva and Yggy exist, so, even if this is interesting, it's over-shadowed, by a huge margin, by both Minerva and Yggy in both a generic Genesis and a Regalia version of Genesis.

2/5

 

I would say that Nyx is like the 3rd string of the Genesis clan in this current meta.  Simply because of her overall effect is very lack luster compared to her other female counterparts.  Her second effect states:

 

[AUTO](VC):When a card with the same name as a unit on your (VC) is put into the drop zone from your soul, if this unit is Legion, this unit gets [Power]+5000/[Critical]+1 until end of turn. This ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn

 

So you have to have a little more requirements in order to get her effect to work simply because you need a copy of her or her mate(Midday Regalia, Hemerabe placed from the drop zone to the soul, which there are several ways to achieve that effect but still if you run max amount of copies of each , so a total of 8 cards all together and you already have 2 on the Vanguard so leaving a possible 6 cards to get her effect off.  I would rather play CEO Yggdrasil and try and get the pressure of her extra critical.....that your opponent can't use grade 1's or higher to guard with.  Her 3rd effect also is kind of lack luster just because again you need to have only so many cards in your hand then you need to soul blast 3 from the soul.......not very good in my mind.  

 

Last but not least about this card is I am happy that it does have a RR rarity in the set, simply because giving it RRR/SP treatment would have been terrible on the value of buying a booster box.
