Born from the disastrous alloy of thermonium and pure glass in Pr Cushing's lab, a creature, with no shape of its own, emerged from Riotspolis, heeding the pull of the Empire Portal. As she made her way through Clint City, all the while trying to mimic both animals and humans, she caused a wave of panic on this Halloween night, raising fears of a new attack of an Uchtulian magnitude. Without pausing, she crept up to the portal and transported herself to the future. Once there, she headed towards the largest source of glass: Rahi Sledon's laboratory. The latter could barely contain his astonishment at the sight of this new form of glass with a new kind of awareness! As well as giving herself the name Cristalys and taking on the looks of one of Dregn's concubines, the mysterious creature also seemed capable of controlling glass creatures without the need for a control box. Although fascinating, this paints an alarming picture...

Clan's bonus Defeat: Recover 2 Pillz Out Of 3
In a distant future, a prophet revealed to the menacing Dregn that an alliance of the descendants of the Clint City Clans would bring about the downfall of his evil empire and an end to his reign of terror. To put a stop to this defeat, Dregn has sent his best fighters to eradicate the problem at its source, that is 1000 years earlier, at a time when the clans are at their most divided.

    Cristalys can block Pill Modifiers. She is a monster of pure beauty and art even in her own clan...

    In other words, she is Glass to be reckoned with a a threat especially for Marty, Zoid and Bubblgm in particular if we were talking about the Vortex Clan

    Even characters such as Ahkab, Parmabarb, Selma Smokey Cr or Scubb of the Piranas would suffer from her despite them cancelling her bonus
    Junkz loses out in a way with Taham
    Even the riots suffer from this ability especially Grace and Dr Van Wesel Ld (who gets nothing from copying the Crystal`s style)
    Cristalys would really be a threat in DT if she can stop Morphun and Eklore...

    But an 8 Power 6 Damage qualifies as scary...

    Cristalys would even make you an idiot for Pill Furying to get back pillz with Sah Brinak, Grace or Belle

    Happy Halloween

    The Vortex gladly accept your tithe... in blood.
    Oh come on, am I the only one that sees Double from Skullgirls in this?

    That said, I dunno if I'd use her. Vortex need that 8-damage 5* to cause scary 2HKO options, like Dregn, Rahi Sledon or C Beast. Cristalys only has 6 damage. See the problem? If her stats were turned around (6/smiley she would be the best 5* option, but as is, I much prefer Dregn and C Beast.
    Her art is amazing, and if you know the card origin, you could see that I'm serious: Crystalis evolves very well, from the morphless creature to a somewhat beautiful woman.

    On the surface this card seems pretty decent but look a little closer and you'll see she has some problems...

    Her main problem is that she's a 5-star. If she was a 2 star, or even a 3, she'd be perfect."

    Cristalys
    Let's state that this card is the first to introduce us to anti pillz manipulation.
    We can expect cards like that to spawn for every clan and it was about time.
    So Riots, Piranas, Bangers, Junkz, etc etc will not be THAT strong for now on.
    But this is an uncommon 5 star that can't be THAT useful on Vortex really.
    You will see that in the long run.
    With Power 8 and just 6 Damage it is barely decent. Versus its competitors it can't shine really.
    I give it a 7/10 because it can be used on Survivor vs Morphun. But that's it. smiley

    On the surface this card seems pretty decent but look a little closer and you'll see she has some problems...

    Her main problem is that she's a 5-star. If she was a 2 star, or even a 3, she'd be perfect. I don't even care what stats she'd have. With that ability and her bonus, you could throw her with no pillz and pretty much come out on top 90% of the time. Let me explain. There are 3 main ways that you can use her:

    1. Sacrificing her to +/- pillz cards. These are cards like Smoky, Grouchy, Grace, etc. You just throw her and take their weak damage and they don't get any pillz for their trouble! Problem is, you just sacrificed your 5-star! So really, you're gonna need to win, instead of the sacrifice. But how many pillz? You don't want to overpill vs. a weak 2 or 3 damage card, and her bonus makes it so you can get away with using fewer pillz, but still...if she was a 2 or 3 star, it wouldn't even be a question.

    2. Beating a defeat: +/- life card. These are cards like DJ L Berto, Parmabarb, etc. Against these you want to win, get 6 damage in, and then their defeat ability doesn't go off. Again though, how many pillz do you spend? If you screw up, you get pillz back, but they stuff your 5-star! Again, if she were 2 or 3 stars it would be much less risky.

    3. Beating pill recovery cards. These are cards like Arnie and her fellow Vortex. Most of these cards have high damage. This is the easiest situation to use her in. You just want to win. And if you do, they don't get any pillz back. You can pill more aggressively in this situation without worrying so much about overpilling. In these situations, save her for the 3rd round unless a good opportunity presents itself early.

    Interestingly, GHEIST, one of the (pill manip clans, completely destroys her ability (though her raw stats are good against them). Pussycats (another pill manip clan) also nerf her pretty well. Junkz have their bonus to use against her, which forces you to pill. Bangers can out-power her. That leaves La Junta, and most of their cards have 8 power and will win ties with her. Riots also have good base power and Piranas take away her safety net!

    So all-in-all she kinda sucks, sorry to say. Hope that was useful. smiley
