I didn’t think I’d ever laugh uncontrollably while facepalming at the same time. What an update to wake up to.
Here I was looking forward to making a post on possible wood row teams now that we have a few options and GungHo pretty much ruins that by making the Ryune equivalent for wood. This not only narrows possible leader selection (mainly Freyja-Sylvie), but also narrows the sub selection since there are no type constraints like there would be for Ishida or Astaroth. Basically just throw on another Sylvie and an Artemis or Michael or two and you’re basically done. Need a shield (for some reason)? Susano. Binds? Thumbelina (RIP Ceres).
It’s nice that both Artemis and Michael interact nicely with Sylvie, but it’s unfortunate that Astaroth doesn’t. If they wanted to buff Astaroth without actually changing the card, they missed the opportunity to do so. Then again, she’d be too much like Verdandi if that was the case.
Sadly, the art is pretty meh.
