Hi folks! Tuesday brings us another Card of the Week, and starting soon you can expect previews of The Movie Collection to show up in this space. In this edition, we’ll be investigating a Heroes & Villains Event that is my personal pick for the best card in the set.
On a broad level, Saiyan Drive By will always create a net gain in the Life Deck race. It’s never difficult to gain anger with Saiyan Empowered Mastery, and often times you’ll be destroying 3-4 cards with this effect.
Next, you can choose any card in your discard pile to be placed on top of your Life Deck. Near the end of an opponent’s combat, you have the option to place a Setup or Ally on top to immediately play on your turn. When combined with cards like Saiyan Grab and Saiyan Enraged, you’ll be able to set up combos and continue an offensive assault.
When under duress, Saiyan Drive By can even shift to defense by setting up one of Saiyan’s many high Endurance cards. Whenever you take that route, you’ll also be able to Rejuvenate any card and potentially gain an anger in the process. Consider this easily attained scenario: Destroy 4 cards from your opponent’s Life Deck. Place Saiyan Pinpoint Blast on top of your Life Deck, Rejuvenate Saiyan Drive By and gain an anger to level up…yikes! The versatility of this card is often overwhelming, and using it to recur itself indefinitely will punish any decks lacking discard pile removal.
A pristine effect, bursting with utility – the gem of Saiyan value!
