Several unexpected events have come into play on the day of the lunar eclipse: a new Vortex has opened up bringing with it new troops from Dregn; a young boy has turned up only to annihilate Don's car with mysterious powers, and strange goings-on have been taking place in the Nightmare manor.
Support Agustino, the new All Stars 2 star champion and professional Pelota player. Assist in the return of Kamekun, Fang Pi Clang 3 star grand master, after his 50 year absence. And discover terrifying characters such as Zoid, the 5 star Vortex techno-priest who has come to carry out the wishes of his Emperor, and Betelgeuse, the 4 star Nightmare mad-woman mistakenly invoked by a group of unsuspecting teenagers.

Agustino-- 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.
Kamekun-- 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.
Betelgeuse-- 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, Montana, and Rescue, and some great nuke potential against FPC/La Junta/Berzerk/Jungo. 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.
Zoid-- 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 (Berg)?
It's always the art that brings me back to this game. I haven't read DBZ, but is it just me, or does Kamekun remind me of Calvin? Betelgeuse is awesome for combining such wonderful levels of disgusting, horrifying and badass, and Illuminati or not, Zoid is one badass priest, but with a name like that, you'd think he'd be a bit more... animalistic.
