A Light of Hope for ST?

   Alright guys, after all the dis pear we had with all the mediocre cards we've seen so far, this happened:

Finally a legit good/great card
Silver Thorn Clown, Selune
Finally a legit good/great card for PM

   So before we dive into what she does, please first understand and read her skill. Oh, and please ignore the other COtD. It is a literal in-every-way-worse Silver Thorn Upright Lion, so much that even if it didn't have any GB1 attached to its skill, it's still worse than the original Lion (I mean I guess you don't have to call Silver Thorn cards to pump it up?).

   Anyways, back to the Clown:

   Yes, they're 2 somewhat straightforward skills, and from the surface, her 1st skill looks like some hot garbage, where her 2nd skill is a just-cost-efficient-but-far-from-amazing CB1 for a hard +1.

   Now what makes her actually good (based off the very limited amount of sanity testing I did so far, so PLEASE take this with a grain of salt as I also want more sample size myself) is not what her skill does on face value, but how her skill is implemented (particularly her 2nd skill).

   The way her skill is implemented (when she's in the soul, whenever something is called, she can pay CB1 to call herself) allows her to have some interesting interactions with many cards, particularly due to how most of the skills that swap units (including her own!) will shove things into the soul first before proceeding to call something out. Basically, there are many things that can shove her into the soul while simultaneously trigger her 2nd effect at the same time. Here are a few that I found based off my, again, very limited sanity testing and basic brainstorming:

1.) When she calls something out with her skill 1, she'd be in the soul already to trigger skill 2, so she'd go in and come back out. When she came from Milward, you mitigates one of the -1 from the cost of her 1st skill, making her just cost-efficient to be a even trade (-1 for 1 extra attack)

2.) When you shove her into the soul as a cost for Zelma's skill, she'd be in the soul already when Zelma proceeds to call something out, which would again trigger her skill 2 while she's in the soul

3.) If you called her out with Milward/magia stuff, then use her 1st skill to call Zelma to reset the other thing called by Milward (which you'd lose otherwise from Magia at the end of the turn), you actually end up with a net +2 for a discard (you basically discard 1 card from hand to gain 1 extra attack, and swap 2 "magia'd" units for a permanent Zelma and whatever other thing is that you reset)

4.) I can use her skill to call Zelma, and she'd triggers her own skill 2. Then both Zelma's on-call effect and her self-call will go on the pending state. I can resolve her first (she'd comes out), and then I can use Zelma to shove her in again to pull something out, and this would trigger her 2nd skill again and I can call her out again. Refill the board while giving you free power to Lion. EZPZ.

   And these are just some interactions I found with my very, very limited sanity check and basic brainstorming. I'm sure we'll find more in the future.


I am hype, nice to meet you. Are you hype?


New Luquier?

It's been 3000 years...
welp, i am hype.

...oh and I am so hype I almost forgot the translation:

   Basically, she's a peek-a-boo that can become hard +1s with Mystique Luquier with an ability that is what Magia should have been in the first place. Using her 1st ability also keeps you at cross riding status on your opponent's turn, and can makes her a solo 17k rear before boosting in conjunction with her 2nd skill if you happened to have strode over another copy of her.

   She also makes ALL of your Silver Thorn units a Jumping Glenn when you stride a Silver Thorn stride, which implies that a Clemens loop now threats to be a infinite 24k loop if you don't guard instead of 18k, and a Maricica/Ana called Zelma lane will be at least 22k by default if they ever hit. Did I mention this skill also works with Dixie for more relevance?

   Anyways, time to test. And I am hype. Nice to meet you. Are you hype?
