Top Player Council Thoughts

“Thoughts on Elemental HERO Electrum?”

Luke Tyler:

It has an underwhelming effect for such a demanding summon requirement. Not only do you have to play unoptimal cards in your deck to summon this, but this card’s effect doesn’t warrant it worth summoning anyway.

tomvdelzen:

Nice for YouTube.

ShinySopheon:

Surprised they didn’t save this garbage hero fusion for a box cover.

“Thoughts on Wrath of Neos?”

Luke Tyler:

This card would be incredible if it was a quickplay. Considering that is not a speed spell 2 card, it is not worth building a deck around.

tomvdelzen:

This cards looks pretty solid.

ShinySopheon:

Only decent card, but it doesn’t make Elemental HERO Neos good.


“Thoughts on Reverse of Neos?”

Luke Tyler:

For such a situational activation requirement it would need to be an auto-win effect to make it decent - it isn’t.

tomvdelzen:

Trash for now.

ShinySopheon:

Garbage!

“Thoughts on Hero Counterattack?”

Luke Tyler:

One of the better cards from Spunky Jaden, but it is still too situational to be competitive.

tomvdelzen:

Not good.

ShinySopheon:

Strong effect when it goes off, but trash card.


“Thoughts on Cocoon Party?”

Luke Tyler:

This card is really nice; you can make a nice few YouTube clips with this. Unfortunately, it demands too much setup and not enough reward for that setup to make the card see competitive play.

tomvdelzen:

Not good.

ShinySopheon:

Trash!

“Thoughts on the other Cocoon/Chrysalis cards?”

Luke Tyler:

Play them with Cocoon Party for a fun meme deck, but these cards are lightyears from being competitive in their current state.

ShinySopheon:

G A R B A G E.
