Onyx - 6/4 with SoA (ability) and Defeat: Recover 2 pills out of 3 (bonus)

- A nice damage of 4 (6 with fury). Average, can't complain.
- Onyx's power may seem lower, but it is actually pretty normal for a 3* abiity SoAer (Elvira, Otakool)
- SoA is obviously Onyx's main drawing point, and SoA abiltiies are always handy. Whether it be taking out key Nightmare threats or annoying Coppers. He also takes out annoying ability DRs, which Vortex normally has a problem against.
- With the handy defeat in play, you can use Onyx to block damaging cards like Kinjo or Shojunn and still get a pill back. You can also test the waters against shaky cards like Skiner and Boohma, and get pills back if you were wrong about pill assumption.

- 6 power without any attack manipulation is iffy. While with defeat in play, losing isn't too bad or may even be beneficial at times, if need to win against something solid, Onyx may have a problem.

Overall: 7/10. Vortex obtained a very needed SoA, which is great. Onyx's power may look pretty low, but it is the same as a great 3* of Vortex, Daae. However, while Onyx may have more utility options over Daae, Daae's attack manipulation will let her actually win. Onyx on the other hand, has a harder time. Still, nice damage and fancy SoA may give you reason to take Onyx over Sunder. Time will tell.

Lovhak's War Journal

Entry #13

October 21, 2010

Subject: Onyx

Onyx, one of the twin brothers who protect Galen, Cyb Lhia, and Lehrg, is an interesting character indeed. While he would seem to be a brute, much like Sunder, Onyx is by no means a brute. Onyx is not a savage; in battle, Onyx does his part, and never too much ( he only kills if necessary to an extreme point).
The shame is, he shows little trust for anyone. While his bond with his brother Kobalth is unnaturally strong, Kobalth rarely counts on the other members of the Vortex for anything, spare Dagg. He doesn't even trust me, strangely enough. I respect that, in a sense.
Onyx fights well, as the GHIEST faction has recently discovered whom our summoners and Vortex engineer are. He can take out a horde of Ghiestlings without assistance, and goes about his buisness. Gaining his trust would be a big jump, but he would be a personal ally who I would be able to rely on anytime.

Why all the bad ratings? He's an unbanned Elriva in my favorite clan!!!
Rate green if you agree.smileysmileysmileysmiley

Dregn's Vortex Log:

Subject 300


As many people well know, the Vortex clan is made up of many different people with many different personalities. Among these characters is the merciless warrior, Onyx. Along with his older brother, Kobalth, the two of them have become a well-known asset here in the Vortex clan. While he may not have as much experience as his older sibling, Onyx is, without a doubt, more merciless and blood thirsty than his brother. That is not to say Kobalth is not blood thirsty either, but I doubt he'll be able to surpass his brother in that category.

Apparently, ever since the two brothers were young, they have been expectional warriors, fighting to kill, and nothing less than that. As they got older, their skills improved, and soon become well-known bodyguards. And it was through Lehrg, that I first met the two brothers, introducing them as his bodyguards. Impressed by their skills, I hired them and made them full-fledged Vortex members.

Though I am proud to have both of the brothers on my side, something worries me. Ever since I first him, it seems Onyx has had trust issues. It seems that he trust no one, except himself. While that is a good quality to have here in the Vortex, it seems he does not even trust us. I'm not even sure if he trust his own brother! But that matters little to me. As long as he continues to do his job, which is taking out the threats to our plans, I could care less who he puts his trust in.

he's the only Soa in the clan other than X-ODUS who's Courage

I used him against a Kolos when they put all their pills in him
guess who won the fight?

Rate Green

smiley THE Vortex ENCOUNTERSsmiley

Onyx: a warrior known as bravehearts desendant with a intent to kill.

on meeting the fellow i could tell he was extremely intelligent and that there was more to him than meets the eye then he shouted from the top of his lungs "kill him" after being chased by both Onyx and Kolbath and a very angry Cyb Lhia i was left thinking two things...

1. does Onyx have lungs?
2.was i right could Onyx be as clever as i once thought?

Onyx in brief is a unsolved riddle or a puzzle with a piece missing i wonder if kolbath is as interesting?

In my opinion hes just as good as Kobalth as the only difference is their ability (Soa vs Sob)
very good as a bluff and he is also effective against cards like Kolos and Willy works very well with a Kronnen

Saturday 14/08/2010, 15:43

his art is sweet, at first I thought he and his brother had pretty boring art, but if you see his lvl 2 and 3 with the amazing claws he's awesome

rate up if you agree

I don't think any of these reviews are fair to Onyx because of one vital fact. STOP ABILITY! If you go against Oshitsune with this card you don't have to wory. If you go against caelus you still do but still. You take out one of the most dangerous cards to any deck. A major power reducer. And your opponent will cry. For days. smileysmileysmiley
