7 DBs, 7 Tidbits: Win a Box!

Hello everyone! Check out the latest in Z news below:
1. Thanks to everyone for participating in last weekend’s Launch Events, we hope they were a blast!

2. The ARG circuit continues to provide off-season action, and you can find the full schedule here. As noted in the CRD, new releases in the DBZ TCG are eligible for tournament play one week after release. Starting this Saturday, Perfection is sure to make a splash on the ARG meta! Next up: Richmond (March 5th) and Detroit (March 19th).

3. Concept of the moment: Endurance is even better than you think. When evaluating the overall usefulness of a card, don’t underestimate just how much value is added by Endurance. Though an increasing amount of decks seek to prey on prevention, Endurance is still worth its weight in gold. During your next few matches, consider how many times you draw a card (and play it) vs. how many times it is discarded as damage (or not effective when played).

4. A frequently asked question from Perfection: When can Master Roshi Level 1 be activated?

Roshi’s Defense Power can only be activated against an attack, and you must have a Setup or Drill to in your hand to activate it. You would not be able to activate the Defense Power simply to gain 2 anger.

The CRD will be updated to Perfection in the near future.

5. Card on the rise: Defiant Challenge. It has obvious synergy with Master Roshi, but many other MPs are beginning to leverage this powerful UR from Evolution. Frieza combo decks were already running it, but the addition of Overwhelming Power has added further legitimacy to the archetype as a whole. Android 18’s influence is steadily increasing (Tag Team anyone?!), and Defiant Challenge combines with Android 18’s Toss to form a ruthlessly efficient search package.

6. You may have noticed a poster for Dragon Ball Z: Vengeance in your Launch Kit. We’re still quite a while out from releasing any info, but Broly looms large!

7. Which Perfection MP have you been playing the most? Sound off in the comment section below, and your name will be entered to win a box of Perfection (one comment per person). The winner will be announced on Friday – post soon!

    • I have to agree. Yamcha definitely has the dominant kit this MP set. I really enjoy his versatility and viability in each style. He isn’t prohibitively narrow like Hero Vegeta, which hopefully Panini acknowledges (I believe they have, considering the cards released with his kit specifically in mind)

  1. I’ve been testing out Roshi with every mastery. I really want to find a unique way to make him work really well. I’m also planning on making some custom Jackie Chun art to layover the Roshi personality art! So excited he was made an MP so quick!

  2. I’ve been playing around with things, but right now I’m running an Old Black Cell. Dunno if I’ll keep it, but I’m having fun with that combo the most right now.

    • I was almost all over that, but I misread his power; it’s non-personality cards.

      If I could pack both hero and villain ALLIES I would be all over it. As is, my card pool just isn’t big enough for both hero only and villain only to be a worthwhile investment. Makes me sad.

  3. I have played more with Piccolo than any other personality thus far. However, I did use an Android 20 deck at my state event, and have begun work on a Cell deck.

  4. I’m super excited for Blue Protective Yamcha. I’ve been playing a Blue Protective Tien that I really like, but Yamcha’s synergy with energy attacks is incredibly tempting. I love playing anger redux, and Yamcha seems to have a good thing going.

  6. Love the new Yamcha set, pretty strong in blue, good card draw/deck set up. so many energies that it gives your opponent a hard time to decided what one to block.

  7. Android 16 in blue protective so far, with plenty of hero/villain cards such as Crushing Beam/Villainous Village for destroying your opponent and maintaining control with Heroic Plan/Assistance.

  8. Just getting into the game, and Black Perceptive Roshi is the first deck I’ve made. Loving it!

  9. I like Roshi due to his attacks being fairly good and his MP having abilities that allow him to level quick and defend. But, my favorite MP of all time is Android 20 combined with the orange adaptive mastery and all the Drills.

  10. Android 16 Blue Tag Team Mastery, fun and kind of broken with android presence with the 4 android allies, takes 4 combat turns/rounds to get them back, using energy attacks and allies makes him my favorite, always loved him in the anime so peaceful. if i win the box or if i don’t win the box i will say thank you either way, i play with a team and we put all of our cards together to share. anyway i like the idea of a lot of these other decks and really hope to one day fight them, it would be very fun to battle them. Thank you Panini for bringing a childhood game back from beyond the grave.
