    [FanZ]:Have you Tried Villain Vegeta?

    Justin McBride

    “Have you tried Villain Vegeta?”

    While this statement from the old Panini Blog has become a tongue-in-cheek meme, it was only slightly away from the truth.  With an amazing, anger-gaining named card in Vegeta’s Final Flash, Villain Vegeta was looking mighty interesting.  His anger-centric powers lend themselves nicely to a monster attack, plus an aggressive personality loves ways out of combat once the damage is done.

    However, Vegeta’s original Level 1 from Premiere really doesn’t hold up these days.  While it IS easier to achieve HIT status than ever before, Vegeta offers no card advantage, no active ability on his villain Level 1, and low power levels/power-up rating.

    In Legends, we get a glimpse at the powerful Prince of Saiyans as a child, long before he becomes Goku’s greatest rival.

    Note: This card should be considered still in ‘alpha’ status, as playtesting for Legends is still in full swing.  Our intent is to keep the final product as close to the following as possible, but changes may occur.  


    Vegeta, The Crown Prince addresses almost ever concern with the classic Villain Vegeta Level 1.  His power level is still on the low-side, reflecting his abilities before the start of Dragon Ball Z.  However, he won’t stay down for long, as his new constant ability adds extra anger to every card you play that doesn’t include ‘anger’ in the text box.  Keep in mind this includes things that LOWER your opponent’s anger, so choose wisely!

    If that wasn’t enough, Vegeta finally has a strong ability to lead off the game with — a Physical Attack for 4 stages is equivalent to the power of Broly, and like Broly he also raises his anger by 1 as an immediate effect.  The HIT effect is also solid, and will give your opponent pause and perhaps even force a block in a situation where they would normally let a 4 stage attack hit.

    Oh, and peep that PUR of 3!

    When Legends drops on July 1st, Vegeta won’t be the only Saiyan getting a legacy level update — but he may be the most exciting!

    So, are you excited to try Villain Vegeta?

    I like this, but it really only makes him useful in saiyan style. Since the rest of his stack relies on attacks that gains anger you'll need to play a lot of those. And those won't give you additional anger from his constant effect so the only real answer is to utilize an effect that adds anger gain as an immediate effect to attacks without printed anger. Which basically means saiyan empowered mastery or Orange disaster drill. Orange disaster drill is more difficult to keep in play and you still wouldn't get the benefit from some of oranges best physical attacks (knee strike, collision, etc.). So that really just leaves empowered mastery which was always villain vegetas best mastery anyway, but if you're going going to give him a new level I don't know why you would be so narrow. In my opinion the constant should just add raise your anger 1 to all your styled attacks. That would open up a lot more options, let him threaten mppv, and not make gallic gun and final flash OP.
