Welcome to the penultimate article my friends! Last week we met Oberon, king of the fairies. Well it’s time to meet his lovely queen, but something seems a bit off about her. Could it be that she has succumbed to the darkness? That’s right! The queen has joined forces with Lapis, becoming a member of the Twelve Apostles! We’ve got several other fairy support cards lined up for today as well, so let’s get started!
Oooh it even comes in blue flavor.
Here’s an interesting one. Technically this card is only related to the fairy archetype in name only, but makes for an interesting support card for decks running water will. Fairy Flower Extract is an addition: resonator that will transform the added card into a 200 ATK 300 DEF card, stats that are typical of a fairy. Since this transformation doesn’t grant the added card flying or the fairy race, it is likely more beneficial to attach it to your opponent’s strongest card, turning it into something with the strength of a total cost one resonator.
I call it the emergency button.
The fairy type relies on cards like Oberon, Viviane, and Elaine to strengthen their field, swarm and bowl over their opponent. As such those cards are going to be prime targets for your opponent’s removal spells and abilities. Now, Protection of the Fairies can provide some defense, but you can only include four copies of the card, and it can’t be played at instant speed, allowing for chances where you can’t play the card or simply don’t have it in your hand. That’s where Excort of the Fairy King comes in. This card has 0 ATK but enters the field with 600 DEF, allowing it to block most all total cost one and two resonators. But what makes it even better is that upon entry, it prevents target fairy resonator from being targeted by spells or abilities your opponent controls. With quickcast you can drop this cheap protector down the second one of your valuable fairies comes under the ire of your opponent.
Certainly hope not all fairy shadows act like that.
While this card may find a better home in a shadow deck, than a fairy focused one, it still has the fairy race and can easily be played with Fairy’s Memoria. Fairy Shadow has 500 ATK and DEF for a total cost two, which is alright. Unfortunately the drawback is that this card doesn’t have flying, like most other fairies do. Upon entry this card can destroy a total cost one resonator, but after that it is a simple vanilla 500/500 card. This card can be provide some good early game board control, but synergizes with shadow decks (which rely on the enemy having their cards destroyed) better than it does with fairy decks. If you’re interested in running this card, it would be a good idea to include Adombrali, so you may banish it for something a little stronger.
So the king is good and the queen is evil? I see a divorce in the future.
I wouldn’t expect any less for the queen who sold out for power. This card costs seven, but you can reduce that cost by two void by resting a fairy resonator. By resting three fairy resonators this card’s cost drops down to one water will. She hits the field running with 1200 ATK and DEF as well as Flying, making her as strong as Gwiber, a card Fairy decks can already easily play and abuse. However Titania also buffs up all other water and fairy resonators you control by 200/200. Combine this with a second Titania play, Armalla, or Circle of Trust this can turn a few measly fairies into a one turn kill. The trick is that you have to rest fairies to play this card. But remember, Oberon? He’ll grant all fairies in your hand quickcast. That means you can drop Titiania on your opponent’s turn, or just before your recovery phase, then recover your fairies, drop another power up card and charge your opponent for the game.
He’s wearing a shell on his head and he can’t swim? Pssh, poser.
Hahahaha. Do I really need to explain this one? It’s a giant death sentence to fire cards, costs one will, and is at spell: chant-instant speed. Trouble with Lancelot? Boom. Athena got you down? So long! Water has long since been considered the weakest attribute, especially when compared to fire. This card provides water with an incredible comeback spell, all the while knocking fire cards down a peg.
Knowing the queen, that can’t be an easy job.
This little fairy has a very unique effect. She’s packing the typical total cost one fairy stats with 200 ATK, 300 DEF, and flying. However, since she’s committed to protecting her queen at all costs, she can block even while rested. This means there’s really no reason not to attack with her every turn. In this way she can whittle down your opponent’s life points every turn (which can only get stronger by dropping Titania) and protect your stronger resonators if they are ever attacked by your opponents cards, or protect yourself if your opponent attacks with a nasty flying J/resonator.
That’s all for today, but don’t forget to look for Battle For Attoractia packs! In stores July 1st! Check back on Tuesday at 3pm JST for the next article!
