Commons - 1-60

C1 - Nail 1

C2 - Nail 2

C3 - Nappa 1

C4 - Nappa 2

C5 - Raditz 1

C6 - Raditz 2

C7 - Tien 1 (Conf.)

C8 - Tien 2 (Conf.)

C9 - Goku ally?

C10 - Piccolo ally (Conf.)

Uncommons - 61-100 (Tien named card is U100)

U61 - Nail 3

U62 - Nail 4

U63 - Nappa 3

U64 - Nappa 4

U65 - Raditz 3

U66 - Raditz 4

U67 - Tien 3 (Conf.)

U68 - Tien 4 (Conf.)

Rares - 101-140

U139 - Tien named card (Conf.)

U140 - Trunks Named Card? "Z-Warriors" named card?

UR - 141-142

 

The math seems to jive.

Love what I'm seeing with Tien so far. Personality screams red to me. However despite that his powers are set up in a way where he's actually fairly useable with any style. I've got an old Tien deck from Score Z floating around but modified to at least be playable with the Panini ruleset. Might proxy his levels and give him a test run this weekend when I get together with my friends.

 

Also like the Piccolo ally. Gohan seems to be underused at the moment due to that mediocre level 1 and his low power levels on the first two levels. I could potentially see Gohan getting a bit more use now. In fact between the Defense Shields and Chi-Chi/Piccolo I think Gohan w/Orange DB could be a strong possibility now.

Tien is fantastic. I don't think he's tied to any one style really, just as people were wanting, I think he's a solid personality for at the very LEAST Red, Black and Orange.

 

Who thinks that because of the self-shuffle, you only really need two Preparations? Or is three a good choice just because of how strong the card is? I don't think I'd play three Draining Blasts personally.

 

Piccolo ally is pretty neat, I wonder if we'll get strong Hero ally stuff...

 

Oh, and R124 is on the Panini DBZ Facebook page.

 

It's... bad mediocre. The adding Endurance is meh (if it was more than 1 it'd be better), but lowering to draw a card could be useful I guess. It's certainly not worth only having two of it in your deck, and being a 3 for 5 dmg... It just seems really terrible, I dunno.

 

MOAR PREVIEWS THOUGHTS

 

Red Palm Strike has more text than the damn Death Star. It's pretty damn good though. I'd use it to give Blue a good kick in the sac.

 

The Black Drill isn't awful, it's pretty damn good Namekian tech.

While I agree that going down is a lot better than going up for Tien, there's better ways to do it... like just NDB2'ing yourself in the face. It costs too many stages, and you can only play two in a deck.

 

I don't know if I like Tien very well in Red either, as much synergy as he seems to have there, his power levels are too low to make him meaningful I think.

Testing will tell.  I don't think NBD2'ing off this card is too bad as it replaces itself in Red, and gives you a chance to go get another Tien's Preparation and chain even more hits, while giving you endurance to win the race.  

 

Of course, this is the beat option and could be inferior to the MPPV route, dunno.  We'll also have to see what options we get in this set's styled cards.
