Working as a switchboard operator at the headquarters of Clintz Bank, Effie was on the verge of a nervous breakdown; bogged down by the hundreds of daily calls she was receiving from unhappy customers (Clintz Bank has never been known for its honesty and less still for the ability of its bankers). Fortunately, one fine day Yayoi Cr provided her with the answer to all her problems: a decent pair of scissors.

Feminists are a thing of the past. Make way for the reign of Double X, XX power! For these hot-blooded women, men are nothing more than a means to satisfy their desires. The Pussycat revolution is here and they’ve got their claws out! And to gain influence in government circles, the Pussycats are quite prepared to strike below the belt…in more ways than one!

Level 1: 4/1
Level 2: 6/2; Abilty: Damage = Opp Damage
Bonus: -2 Opp Damage, min 1

Wow. I have to say that this is a card the cats have needed for a long time now. For those trying to play mono-Pussycats, replacing Gwen's and Wanda's as they level up can get expensive, so a solid 6-power, 2-star with a decent ability is purr-fect, in my opinion. Now, players can use Wanda and Effie, without worrying about card leveling. Of course, some people will prefer to use Feelyn, but she becomes a true liability against SOA, and with Roots being so popular lately, drawing a 5/3 can be downright frustrating. Against SOA, Effie becomes a 6/2, which is much more reliable than a 5/3 (in my opinion).

Players who think this game is all about stars and power will say she's terrible, players who like strategy and T1/ELO will at least give her a shot. B+

Effie is good for a more aggressive Cats deck as opposed to the more defensive Ella. It'll become a tossup between her and Feelyn dependent on playstyle as to which goes in alongside Yayoi and whatever other interesting things one would want to serve up.

This card is surely ok for ELO, generally for defensive purposes. It makes opponents overpill their Oshitsunes, Hikiyousans and Kinjos, and if they don't... WE will steal THEIR uberdamage with 2-star card. 6 power is definitely not enough for direct attack (bluffing and low-pill manipulations are still ok), but in defense, when you know enemy stats and can guess the number of pills, Effie is extra-effective.

My 8/10 and an honorable place as ELO 2* filler for Effie.

~Eloxia Reviews~
Effie 6/2 2* Ability: Damage = Opp Damage.

♥-Can turn into a high damaged 2 star if played correctly.
♥-Only 2 stars.

♥-6 power isn't so great when you don't have anything to help back it up.
♥-Ability is a little Effie, low damage cards and SOA can really screw her over.
♥-Lucy/Wanda/Brittany are all better subs.

Overall I give her a 5/10. She's no longer needed in a Pussycats deck in my opinion but was a great card back in the day =).

Effie got the most powerful thing in the world of yayoi

A pair of scissors smiley

Effie: 6/2; Damage = damage opp at level 2


-A card that has the potential of becoming a 6/8 (6/10 with fury) that can reduce her opponent's damage if used against an 8 damaged, no-SOA/Damage Reducer card
-Her potential damage, average power and defensive capabilities make her a rather nice and fun to play card
-She can be used at level 1 filler if you really want, but Noon Steevens is a better option and costs just a little bit more (not to mention Wanda and Gwen)

-She is a very risky card to play... because there are lots of SOAs and Power/Attack manipulators out there, in front of which, Effie becomes a weak link

-Wanda and Gwen 2* are clearly better options for a T1/ELO deck, but I find her rather better that Feelyn or Ella (even though Ella is a better defender)
-She should never be used in T2/Survivor

CONCLUSION: Effie is an ok card, but she finds herself a rather unneeded one, in a very balanced clan, with very powerful low stared cards....

Pretty good for a 2* since 6 power is average and damage is X put in with the ability, a very good bluff with 2 or 3 pillz.
I don't really want to spend the time to type about her pros and cons so I'll just give her a 8.5/10
Rate green if you agree that this is a staple in almost all Elo pussycat decks.

level 1:
level 2:
ability damage=damage opp.
bonus -2opp damage min 1

overall a good adition to the pussycats at 2*

This is a wonderful addition to the Pussycats. No longer do you have to live with the default 5 base power of that "other" 2 star you're obligated to use when making half-decks using Pussycats (unless you're rich and you use Gwens and Wandas).

That ability more often than not will be pretty useful, and if it gets stopped, or if you lose the round, Effie can still function as a reducer.

She looks like the more attractive version of Frida smiley

-4/1in level one, 6/2in level two with the ability of d=do
-a decent card for the pussycat family, p=6 is a decent score and could deal with most opponents quite handily.while D=DO
is very flexible to use.
-almost as cheap as sakura and tania, and she is tons better than them, while ella and feelyn is more expensive, they mostly worked out as defender, while effie can do both the attacker and the defender because of her bonus of minus 2opp d.
-a card that saves me quite a number of times in the battle, just be careful never ever use it before the opponent, and becareful of the SOA cards.

her damage is very flexible in battle.

Saturday 18/07/2009, 05:08

wow! she can also be played at type 2 beacause of her ability. why? she copies damage and in type two you could see many cards with big damages that are used as bluffs and then thats were she kicks in. smiley

A wonderful two star card for Pussycats.

Lets say you are the one who start the round, no way that u put an Ella out. Some may choose Wanda, for me, Effie is the answer.

A good card in avoiding KO from your opponents, as they would think twice if they are attacking with high damage cards. Isn't that fits well into a Pussycats half deck? attack and defense at the same time? NICE! smiley

Clint City, night.
