Greetings HeroClix Players and Duelists!
Today, we bring you another preview from the Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Three set, releasing today! Let’s examine more of “Seto Kaiba’s” XYZ monsters!
Z-Metal Tank comes in at 85 points and begins the game with Sidestep, Energy Explosion, Invulnerability, and its special power, “Cover Fire!” “Cover Fire” increases both the Defense and Damage values of adjacent friendly characters by +1! Additionally, combining Sidestep with Cover Fire can lead to even better results! Z-Metal Tank can boost the damage of a first adjacent friendly character while that character attacks before moving adjacent to another friendly character, who can also benefit from the Defense and Damage boosts of “Cover Fire.” “Cover Fire” works particularly well to bolster X-Head Cannon’s Damage to maximize the effect of its special power, “Double-Barreled Cannon.” Z-Metal Tank is a durable monster that is very capable in both supporting friendly characters and attacking on its own!
X-Head Cannon, Y-Dragon Head, and Z-Metal Tank can combine to form the powerful XYZ-Dragon Cannon! XYZ-Dragon Cannon can be played at 175 points, or can be brought in by the Fusion ability when either X-Head Cannon, Y-Dragon Head, or Z-Metal Tank are adjacent to each other and hit an opposing character. XYZ-Dragon Cannon has formidable combat values throughout its dial, starting off with 11 Attack and 5 Damage on its first three clicks! These great numbers look even better when XYZ-Dragon Cannon is brought into the game with the Fusion ability! XYZ-Dragon Cannon starts out with Running Shot, Impervious, and Energy Explosion. XYZ-Dragon Cannon has Energy Explosion for its whole dial as well, and with 3 Bolts it can threaten any opposing characters that are adjacent to each other and will likely force opponents to reconfigure their formations to avoid large amounts of damage!
Later in the dial, XYZ-Dragon Cannon transitions to Sidestep, Ranged Combat Expert, Invulnerability, and Toughness to continue the aerial offensive. Also, XYZ-Dragon Cannon has Indomitable to make sure that it doesn’t slow down and with the standard Boot symbol it can even be carried! You may notice that XYZ-Dragon Cannon actually costs fewer points than XY-Dragon Cannon. XYZ-Dragon Cannon foregoes some special powers as well as Enhancement to increase its power, lower its Point Cost, and make it a formidable monster when brought in as a Fusion! XYZ-Dragon Cannon is a definite powerhouse and capable of doing significant damage to an opponent’s force, so be sure to try it on some of your own teams!
Until next time, if at first you don’t succeed, keep blasting them with your XYZ monsters!
