  1. Mecha Frieza

    So, after being to a few tournaments my views have changed a bit regarding Mecha Frieza. Mecha Frieza with Goku GT is tough but beatable; well-timed negates and blockers go far in this matchup but it is far from unwinnable. Mecha Frieza with apes is total shananigans and playing against it has been the least amount of fun I've ever had playing a card game. The deck gets out multiple big blockers with additional effects (double strike or crit) that enter active mode at the end of the turn with ease, and then another play gives them all barrier. When it comes down to it, I think there are multiple problem cards here: Mecha Freiza is the obvious one. Bandai should consider changing his power to once per turn to do away with 1-cost spell shenanigans that the dev team will have to design around for the lifetime of the game. His power is too much of a liability going forward, so I think it makes sense to change him in some way. Planet Vegeta should get an outright ban. The card is supremely broken. Other cards that search for 1 cost have more restrictions on them and this one is pretty open in its search criteria. But that's not really what makes it so bad. The worst part is that great apes enter active mode at the end of the turn. A 1-cost spell that nets you a card in hand probably shouldnt have the capability to put multiple 3-5 cost cards into active mode at the end of the turn. Especially since those cards have combinations of effects like 20k/blocker/crit and 20k/blocker/double strike, making them both offensive and defensive powerhouses. This card should have never been printed. Shugesh is another that needs an errata or outright ban. The devs had the good idea to limit the new A16 super combo to green androids, so why not restrict the new yellow super combo to yellow saiyans? And playing a 3-cost card for free is just ridiculous and does not fairly compare to the other super combos. Changing it to 2 cost would go a long way to fix this card. I will agree with Shoryu now, the game is not in a good state at the moment. The devs appear to have designed the game into a corner; I am hoping they fix it soon.
  2. DBS 2018 Product Releases and Nationals Confirmed

    Starterku > SS3 Goku. SS3 Goku leader is a trap.
  3. "Rules Update"

    The CBL ruling is ridiculous, there was no reason to change this card in the first place. Also, that flow chart should be updated to show Shugesh super comboing into free plays.
  4. Oversaturation

    That's kind of what it's doing to me now. I'm on the verge of moving from a "want to have everything so I can build anything" collector to a "I'll buy the rares to fill out the decks I want to play" collector.
  5. Vile's DBS sale.

    Sucks to see you go man. One of the boxes I bought had the SAME EXACT FOILS that you post in that first page. Not kidding.
  6. Oversaturation

    Ah, geez. Did you guys see the new distribution information? Next month a new draft box, same deal with new leaders and comes with a TP3. Then the month after that we get a new set of "themed boosters" which doesnt seem like that small of a set. Month after, and it's an ultimate box with 5 new leaders and 25 new cards (playset of each included) and a card binder. Then, its a new set with two new starters (yay green and yellow), special pack, and booster boxes. And, oh yeah, two SCR this set.
  7. Mecha Frieza

    Exactly. It hasn't even been a week since the set released and some people are already convinced the meta is broken. Frieza didn't even win the event Shoryu mentioned, despite taking up half of top cut. The meta has barely even had time to develop; make no mistake that the people who actually build and test decks instead of playing the flavor of the week/month are coming up with ways to beat Mecha. I remember when set 2 dropped the Goku Rose promo shot up to $100 because people were convinced Zamasu was unkillable and Goku Black was meta.
  8. Mecha Frieza

    I disagree. I can't tell you how many games have come down to one negated or blocked attack. And Vile is right to point out the free blockers; the leaders that can play blockers for free (A17, Trunks, Gohan, etc) have an inherent defensive advantage over decks that dont.
  9. Mecha Frieza

    Honestly, any color Ginyu was a top tier deck in set 1. Orange was crazy energy beats that were helped by his level 1 and 2 powers, Red was MPPV rush, Black was just a great style anyway so black Ginyu was good, and Blue was for more ally support and was generally the best against other Ginyus. Orange and Blue were the most played during set 1. THIS! Spot on. I sit down to craft decks and Mecha does a lot of stuff better than many other leaders. IMO, this is a better reason to nerf Mecha than the fact that he can win by turn 2/3. And about the argument that he can win by turn 2/3..... Yes, he certainly can. But 1/2-cost blockers have been around since set 1 and have seen very little use. The same people who complained about Vegeta's crit effect in set 1 were the same ones who argued that 1/2-cost blockers were garbage and laughed at those who played them. Does this solve everything? No, it does not. But the community shouldnt complain about aggro if they're not willing to at least consider all of the defensive options at their disposal.
  10. Your First Set 3 Decks

    What do you guys planning on building and playing when set 3 drops? Currently, I am planning on building Black/Red Masked Saiyan, Red/Blue Pan, Red/Green/Blue Vegtio (old red leader), and something using the great apes in yellow, probably mecha frieza.
  11. The Games We Play

    Just curious what kind of character you were running in FO4? I actually just finished a play through last night (my fourth I think) with a character specializing in Charisma and Intelligence who used automatic weapons. Now that I'm done with FO4 its time to start Xenogears.
  12. Set 3 Secret Rare - SS4 Goku

    Red was missing a really great leader until the introduction of Pan, I'm glad I have something other than Champa now. Yeah, but part of my point is that this is a forum for discussion. Just stating your opinion on something without actually discussing WHY doesnt get much accomplished. Too bad you cant actually run both, although that would be hilarious. I dont even think you can main one and side board the other.
  13. Set 3 Secret Rare - SS4 Goku

    Why though? I wont say it's a great card but it is certainly where I expect an "ultimate" 1-per deck card to be. Triple strike and triple attack at 40k makes it well deserving (and worth) the 10 energy cost for hard casting. Fusion for 5 red seems like a great balance mechanic, making it easier for Vegito to play it but also allowing other red-heavy decks some access. I'll agree that it is terrible in the "when am I going to play a 10-cost card?" category but not in the "is it worth the cost?" category. To put it another way, it is terrible because it is a 10 cost card, not because the effect-to-cost ratio is poor.
  14. Set 3 Secret Rare - SS4 Goku

    The Vegito SCR isn't good in just Vegito though. It also fits nicely into Beerus and Zamasu decks that ramp up energy and can hard cast it for game. Sure, its not the most versatile card out there but it is definitely playable in more than just Vegito. The best thing about the new SCR is that it is not universally good. Bandai seems to know what they're doing when it comes to the "Ultimate" cards. I disagree with your sentiment that the SS4 Goku is more usable than SCR Vegito; IMO, they're about the same. For Vegito you either need ramp or fusion; for SS4 Goku you need either ramp or ex-evolve. There is a diverse pool of Goku and Vegeta to fuse from but ex-evolve requires a specific Goku-GT card to evolve onto. *joke were omitted from this post so it doesn't get deleted*
  15. Mystery Announcement Tomorrow, February 22nd!

    Perfect. Now I can stream DBS while I'm hanging out in MY VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!
