Sham-wow. Just as our wallets are starting to recover from all those BT11 pe=rr-orders, Bandai teases us with DB6.
Let's get to the cardboard.
The King is here! Dragon Balls King Picollo looks feisty and ready for a cuddle. This guy comes out to play for free when your Unison has 3 or more markers. I see him adding a nice boost to Set 10 Pilaf where your Triple Attack 2 drop Vegeta, Elite Unison is going HAM.
I hope we see more Namekian support in this draft box. #MakeNamekGreat
I hope this looks as good in foil as I think it will.
Do we have a new red staple? Options. we like options.
a. On your turn it's a +5k to any card (Leader, Unison - I see you Pilaf leader or Battle card)
b. On your opponents turn it's a Sn1per: AOD babidi or Slugs little homie Wings giving you a hard time? this will remove that threat.
GIANT FORCE! Or GFR is the unique rarity for DB6. What does Slug bring to the table?
Well. He's Critical. +1 token to drop a card and neg an opponents battle card by 10k. 'sokay.
-4 tokens.... well, you don't want to let this guy get to 4 tokens. If you plan on countering, that is. Activating the auto burns your opponent for 1 life. Many decks love a bit of burn. I'm keen to see how they utilize this gigantic pest.
Remember Bardocks Crew from TB3 (Clash of Fates)? No? me neither. This guy is the personfication of every Bardocks Crew player that wanted the archetype to be good. He pissed.
I really like this "evolving on a card from energy" business. It's something new for DBS (correct me if I am wrong).
A Double Stike 20k Ape that Restands at the end of your turn (provided you EX-evolved to get him out). Oh yeah, he's a Blocker too.... if that wasn't enough - go on, draw a card.
What I told you, that you could look at the top 2 cards of your deck, add 1 to hand and bottom deck the other? Not bad, huh? What if I told you it was free?
Yep. Shenanigans inbound
Shoryuken!. Oops, wrong game.
Options. Options are great.
Once per turn? nah - Just let me do it as often as I like. Chur.
Triple Strike, Barrier and he costs 5 energy...
a. I drop a card, kill ANY of your battle cards and remove 2 markers from your unison (when in battle area).
b. 1 Green energy, discard this guy and remove a marker from your opponents unison - I see you Blue unison with 2 markers.
Oh - and he is also a valid target for Intensive Training Son Goku.
I can be your Hiru, Baaaaaaaabbbbbyyyy.
Firstly, what is this 4 cost Hiru that you speak of? time will tell.
Options. More options. Fuck yes.
a. When he leaves via an opponents skill or is Ko'd he either plays the 4 drop (WHAT ARE YOU??!?) or Colossal Malice Hirudegarn from BT04. If you don't like that option, make your opponent drop 2 of your choice.
b. Oh, how about we trigger option a. by self KO'ing. As a thank you - choose 2 of your opponents Battle Cards to KO.
Also... the art. The first thing I saw rhymes with Rig Crown Tock.
Green/Yellow Slug. This guy will sit there all day with Wings, the Morale Booster under their Barriers, spoiling your day. You can also bring him out with Lord Slug, Young Again and Lord Slug, Agent of Destruction.
