Theory-crafting 101: A Little Help from My Friends

Hey everyone!

Today is my birthday! So to celebrate (and because it’s that time of the week again), let’s take a look at our next TC101 list together!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has been a part of the blog and FanZ community so far. It has been a great experience getting to be a bigger part of the community once again and I look forward to seeing where FanZ takes us in the future. And it’s all thanks to people like you reading and contributing to the community’s efforts and supporting the game we all love!

Alright, with that mushy stuff out of the way, let’s check back in with our good friend King Kai and see what we can do to try and make him see some more (or any, really) event participation!

What Are We Trying to Accomplish

Alright so this list is trying to do a few things, but luckily they all weave together nicely!

First, we are trying to be an MPPV list. Second, we are trying to be an Ally list. And Lastly, we can be an Allied Blitz/Energy Beatdown Survival list. Now those all might sound like very different things, but luckily for us King Kai is designed to do it all!

Normally, leveling in an Ally list (with the exception of Ginyu) will turn off our ability to use our allies. However, King Kai’s levels are designed to give some, if not multiple of our Allies the ability to make action regardless of his power level, so we aren’t strictly cut off from using them. Next, because we are an Energy based deck, our stages will naturally be low enough where one good hit from our opponent will put our allies up and running again – especially because King Kai sits in A & B brackets. Finally, thanks to the majority of anger sitting on Orange’s Energy Combat cards, and with the help of Orange Captivity Drill plus our Mastery, we should be able to jump levels rather quickly!

Now there is a pretty hefty amount of Planning Step cards in this list, so you will have to use your best judgment on how to get around that fact, but as long as you don’t get caught in bad situations, it shouldn’t be a crippling aspect of the deck.

The Power is Yours!

That’s it for this week!

Don’t forget to vote in the poll below for next week’s article! We had a tie at the last minute for 3rd Runner up, so 3 lists will be returning for this week’s poll instead of the normal 2!

Until next time, FanZ Warriors!
