I can definitely see Oracle's point with Ward hg
. I've never been much of a Vortex
player myself (only on occasion), but I can see where he's coming from.
Ok, Ward hg
has the lovely 8 power. Everyone agrees that is a good thing. Where Kitsune does not like Ward hg
, however, is in the ability to get a favourable match up for him. Saying that he will 'consistently' get 1 or 2 damage isn't entirely accurate. Obviously his ability can be stopped (making him on par with the commonly used Cyb Lhia
), or he can face a low damage card. Just because his damage can often times be low, his presence in a hand can influence (not decide, but influence) which order your opponent has to play their cards. The fact that he THREATENS to do more than 1 or 2 can be valuable.
Keep in mind that Laura
are both 3* cards. Ward's 1 less star is pretty much an automatic plus over those two comparisons. He's only 2 STARS, so 2-4 gap is perfectly acceptable, and he can threaten to do more. I hear you Kitsune about lacking the 'consistent' ability to make an impact, but its not like he's a 4*.
Amazing fantastic card without any flaws? No.
But underrated? Probably.
That said, I'm not likely to use him very often.
