What's up, Rogue Squad?! For today's Card of the
Day, I'm just going to be flat out honest and just say
that I am definitely goin got be bias. Why? Just look
at what we're reviewing:
Sea Strolling Banshee
[AUTO]:[Soul Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (RC)
from your drop zone, if you have a «Granblue» vanguard,
you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.
...such a good card for the deck! Sea Strolling Banshee
may have a subpar Power, but what it lacks in Power it
DEFINITELY compensates for in speed. Whenever the
Banshee is resurrected, you get to Soul Blast a card to
draw a card. Coming from the self-proclaimed "Master of
the Pirates", this is definitely something that was
needed for the clan as the deck was only based off of
some flashy resurrection tricks, but were based off of
being just a raw power deck, but when Set 13 came out
and Granblue received two cards, Nightmist (which was
reviewed previously) and this card, it definitely helped
give the clan the VERY much needed push to be one of the
most underestimated clans in the game along with Great
Nature. Yes, there is a drawback with the Power and the
fact that this card baically becomes a dead card (no pun
intended) after the effect is resolved and becomes a
generic vanilla unit, but that's where cards like
Samurai Spirit, Deadly Spirit and Captain Nightmist
(from Set 2) come in as sacrificing the Banshee t
resurrect any of these cards puts her right back into
the Drop Zone to be used later on in the match.
If you're playing Granblue, you're playing this card.
It's that simple. An excellent card for the deck that
helped breathe new life in this undead deck.
Next Time: Great...more German...where's my
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
Sea Strolling Banshee
I don’t know why this card wasn’t picked for the last
“Last squeeze regarding interesting stuff from BT13”
week, but, well, allow me to correct that by reviewing
it now. Sea Strolling Banshee. When called from the Drop
Zone, Soulblast 1 and draw a card.
This gal was a nice addition, on top of all the other
new stuff that allows Granblue to revive specific
things, rather than certain stuff like Samurai Spirit.
She’s an excellent partner to Lord of the Seven Seas,
Nightmist in that you revive 2, draw 2, then use cards
like Samurai Spirit to neatly sack them away. Bam,
including the -1 from the Break Ride, you’re +3 up.
She’s not perfect, obviously; Blueblood is forced so as
not to make bad columns with her if she has to be called
normally, but given Granblue’s lack of better stuff it’s
hardly much of a penalty.
Sea Strolling opens up a new way for Granblue to tank. A
