Sword Girls has presented the preview of its third episode
The anime card game Sword Girls has presented the preview, of its third episode, and shows the new cards that are coming to the upcoming open beta test of the game. These cards are only a sample of what Sword Girls Episode 3 has to offer.
- Library Club Ace (Vita Public School) – The Library Club Ace (or Lib. Ace for short) is the ultimate pure support
Follower. She only has a SIZE of 2, so you have plenty of room for
other Followers, and every turn, all allied Vita Followers gain Attack
and Stamina equal to her SIZE of 2. If you raise her SIZE with buffing
cards like Cooking Failure, the benefits she provides grow as well!
- Cook Club Ace (Vita Public School) – If
your opponent is just sitting there with a high-defense Follower,
laughing as all of your attacks bounce off it, bring out Cook Club Ace.
Whenever she attacks a Follower with a Defense other than 0, her own
Attack and Stamina rise. This helps her chop up targets with a negative
Defense, but its real benefit comes when fighting Followers with a high
Defense. The tougher her target’s shell, the stronger she gets. Once
she gets warmed up, she’ll cleave through other Followers like a hot
knife through butter.
- Black Magic Plot (Academy) – Black Magic Plot is a
Spell that sharply raises the Attack of Academy Followers. Two of them
get an additional four Attack, allowing them to quickly smash through
enemy Followers. This Spell can more than double the Attack of many
Followers. It does reduce their Stamina by one, but compared to the raw
power they receive, it’s a price well worth paying.
- Linia Pacifica (Academy) - Linia Pacifica is Cinia’s eldest sister. As the leader of the Pacificas, she holds a lot of personal power, hitting hard
and taking a lot of punishment. However, her true power as a lady of
noble birth is her influence over others. At the start of every turn,
she grants herself and neighboring Academy Followers a bonus to Attack
and Stamina equal to half of her SIZE, rounded up. By default, her SIZE
is 5, so she and up to two other allies will be getting boosts of 3
- Cultist Maid (Academy) - The Cultist Maid is a
sneaky Follower that isn’t afraid to fight dirty, and she has a skill
that’s sure to ruin your opponent’s carefully-laid plans. Before she
attacks, the defender’s skills are completely removed. She can only do
this once, but the best Followers rely on their skills to carry their
weight. Cultist Maid, used at the right time, can destroy the tactical
value of even the most powerful Followers.
- Chrono Clock (Crux) – Chrono Clock is a simple,
but powerful Spell. Its effects are unpredictable, but they’ll always
be welcome. A random allied Crux Follower has its Attack raised by 1,
2, or 3, but more importantly, its SIZE is reduced by 1, 2, or 3. In
short, Chrono Clock hits with a one-two punch by empowering a Follower
and reducing its SIZE at the same time. This frees up valuable room in
your Field SIZE for other Followers itching to get in on the action!
- Crux Command (Crux) - Crux Command carries the
authority of Jaina, the leader of the Crux Knights. This powerful Spell
is a Double Rare card: the rarest type in the game. The odds of
drawing it when you buy a random card are slim, but its power is
indisputable. Normally, this card grants two allied Followers 2 Defense
and 1 Stamina. The stat increase is nice, but if you have nine or
fewer cards remaining in your Deck when you use Crux Command, it grants
an astonishing 6 Attack and 6 Stamina, along with raising their Size
- Vanguard Knight (Crux) – The Vanguard Knight is a
welcome addition to Crux forces. For Crux players who were jealous of
Layna Scentriver, the Vanguard Knight brings her own spin on that Vita
Follower’s skill. Vanguard Knight starts with an impressive 6 Attack, 2
Defense, and 13 Stamina, but her Attack and Stamina are raised by the
number of Crux cards in your Hand at the start of every turn. While she
may not have Layna’s sheer durability, Vanguard Knight makes up for it
in offensive power.
- Mediator Cabernet (Darklore) – Vampires are not
generally known for their willingness to help others, but Mediator
Cabernet works to keep Darklore infighting to a minimum. As long as
she’s in play, allied Darklore Followers have their Attack and Stamina
raised by 2 at the start of every turn. She only has a Stamina of 9,
but her 2 points of Defense go a long way to ensuring her
survivability. The more time Cabernet has to do her job, the stronger
all your Darklore Followers will be.
- Misfortune (Darklore) – Misfortune is a great
Spell to weigh down your opponent. When it takes effect, an enemy
Follower has its SIZE raised by 3, which keeps the opponent from
putting down more cards and puts serious limitations on their ability to
react to your plays, and if it raises their Field SIZE by enough, it
forces them to discard cards they can’t play. This powerful Spell does,
however, have a limiting factor. In order for it to work, Misfortune
removes six cards in your Grave from the game, so it’s best used either
late in the game, or in magic-heavy Decks.
