*or Gohan Anything, really.
Trunks has made great strides since the release of Awakening, and his presence in the environment continues to increase. Trunks has a wide variety of Named cards, including the recently printed Trunks’ Knee Bash.
While Knee Bash offers versatile board removal, Trunks’ most powerful tool is arguably Trunks’ Slam. At worst, it serves as a high tempo AT +3 with +1 immediate anger (and is considered Styled for the effects of Ruthless, Rampaging, et al).
However, it also carries the tremendous upside of forcing your opponent to pass. For aggressive decks, this effect is a huge boon – often acting as a free “super skip” to sequence around anti-anger effects, or a simple path out of combat (after having unloaded multiple cards from your hand). Meanwhile, more controlling decks can utilize Trunks’ slam with consistent block effects like Orange Steady Drill and Trunks – Frenzied in order to end combat at will.
