Oh dearie me. The original nuke in a REALLY nice robe
for Genesis, it's Minerva. Now, I have to revise my
original opinion for this one as well, if only because
I've had to have this thing shoved in my face at locals
so many damn times.
I got about 50:50 results with Descendant, but fully
aware these people are not me and I/they may be missing
a trick, I used the test function in a Vanguard sim I
know (that shall remain nameless since I don't want it
shut down), and ran some numbers, and quickly discovered
this. Minerva actually is better than Descendant, even
taking the Superior Ride option into account.
The lack of flexibility really hurt since Descendant
couldn't follow up on any hard damage, and the fact that
Minerva was repeatable while still shooting for good
numbers pretty much did it in. And, hell, she's got the
13k defense going for it.
Unfortunately I am not rich enough to get a start on it
after failing to nip it in the bud in BT10, so I just
decided to look to the new set and build Seekers
All I can say is if you DID get everything you needed
for her deck, good for you. And good news, Nyx sucks. So
you can still use her as a good anti-sack engine if you
don't get CEO.
Omniscience Regalia Minerva
This should have been CEO Yggy. This isn't even
the best restander in the game, though she's really
close, the only thing keeping her from going to the top
is, well, the support that Regalia has, while it's a lot
better, it doesn't compare to the Kagero support that
the Overlords get.
I guess if you don't have CEO Yggy, you should be
running Minerva in a Genesis deck. Seriously,
there's no competition other than those two for the
deck. Yggy makes it so your opponent can't guard
with a perfect guard and can end the game at 3 damage
while Minerva here restands for massive damage.
I... Dunno what else to say about this, I think I
was here when we reviewed this one, if I was, go refer
to that review.
Bonus list time!
My top 10 restanding Vanguards that are out right now!
No, Raging Form Dragon does not restand, it Persona
#10 Duo Temptation, Reit
#9 Stern Blaukluger (has to hit the Vanguard, but can
restand more than once)
#8 Spectral Duke Dragon (hit or don't hit, restand
anyway, first to do so)
#7 Galaxy Blaukluger (anything hits, restand!)
#6 Deadliest Beast Diety, Ethics Buster Яeverse (the
Cross-Break ride turn is so hard to survive)
#5 Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant (I hit or I restand,
#4 Blue Wave Dragon, Tetra Drive Dragon (combined with
the break ride is just stupid and dumb)
#3 Omniscience Regalia Minerva
#2 Dragonic Overlord the Яe-Birth (crushing finisher)
#1 Dragonic Overlord the End (simply the best)
