Hey folks, TGIF! Thank Goku It’s Friday, naturally. We are chomping at the bit to show off some previews from the next set, but they are still banished to the Negative Zone until approvals allow the curtain to be lifted. Just a few weeks remain until The Movie Collection is unleashed, and Organized Play kicks off shortly after that – get ready! Also, be sure to check out below for details about your chance to win a box of The Movie Collection.
“Recently we’ve heard a lot of hype for the Red Style in the Movie Collection, but there is one more style that is in drastic need for improvement in order to be competitive and that is the Saiyan Style. Can Saiyan players expect to see the same level of improvement as the Red Style in Movie Collection as well?”
Dante D. from California
In my opinion, Saiyan is completely underrated in the current environment! That being said, Saiyan definitely receives a lot of new toys in the next set. Fans of Saiyan Vegeta will be thrilled to answer an early Wall Breaker with Saiyan Backbreaker, which benefits from attached cards being in play.
“Now that Red Relaxation is seeming to be Tien’s Mental Conditioning, is there any hope for physical beatdowns to ever win. First Black powerup now this really.”
Shawn D. from Nevada
Red Relaxation is similar to Tien’s Mental Conditioning, but it has been reimagined into something that is more balanced in the modern game. Even without powering you up to full, it’s an efficient card that helps Red smooth out turns and generate advantages without spending an action. Red decks are often hit the hardest by any sort of disruption to their sequencing, and Red Relaxation addresses that issue in more ways than one. For example, instead of simply gaining an anger it [REDACTED].
“The new pack format is awesome but can we expect more alternate formats for constructed like Tuff Enuff?”
Carl from Florida
With the current emphasis on Survival as a prominent mode of victory, a TE* format in this game would not be that much different from the normal constructed environment. We’re always on the lookout for alternate formats that might make the game more fun, but right now the focus is on a balanced and competitive metagame for the upcoming Regionals.
*A format in the old DBZ CCG that did not allow MPPV or Dragon Ball Victory.
“More riddle spoilers while waiting for real previews please”
Julia C. from Puerto Rico
Blue receives another attack Setup. One of the new MPs has a card that advances a personality level, and it does not say “You cannot win by MPPV if you use this card.” There is a card similar to Babidi’s Evil Plans in the set. Turles is very harsh against decks with a lot of Endurance. Both of the Ultra Rare cards in the set are limit three per deck, and one of them depicts Turles blowing up Piccolo. And yet, there is still so much more to show you. . .
