-- kind of an updated Stacey
, but not really better or worse. The 1 point of DR might be nice in a pinch, though. Prot: p & d cards will definitely have an easier time with this guy than they do with Stacey
-- as has been said, basically Wonder Lana
for FPC. Don't think he beats out Shifou
or Zhu Tang
, but definitely viable in some setups. Makes 22333345 mono-FPC quite scary.
-- Weird how meta changes make some cards more viable. Oshitsune
once dictated play (and still does sometimes), but it's much easier now to build a deck that will reliably draw 2 counters to him every time. Enter Betelgeuse
. Doesn't have the potential to dominate like Oshi, but scarily solid against Huracan
, and Rescue
, and some great nuke potential against FPC/La Junta
. Only con is that 6 power is kind of underwhelming (though not unusable), but low power, high threat cards are Nightmare's bread and butter.
-- A beefier Marty
that is well-suited for extended and standard high-star battles. Probably not a great ELO
card due to that 6 power, but hey, I've seen Ahkab
work in some setups, why not Zoid
