Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix Series One: Mystical Elf!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

It’s game time as we look into the Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set. The Mystical Elf is very kind and gentle and is found to be delicate. In the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! she may not be the strongest but the Mystical Elf will provide great defense.

044-Mystical-Elf

The Mystical Elf has 3 clicks of Phasing/Teleport for movement. This will allow the Mystical Elf to be given a move action and then move her up to her speed value. During this movement Mystical Elf may use the Improved Movement combat ability and ignore elevated, hindering, and blocking terrain as well as other characters.

Mystical Elf has a special attack power called Mystical Healing.  At the beginning of your turn, you may roll a d6 that can’t be rerolled. On a result of 4-6, heal an adjacent character of 1 click. Notice that it does not say friendly character; you could heal an opposing character as well.

Mystical Elf starts with an 18 defensive value and can use Barrier for her first 3 clicks. Her last 2 clicks have Willpower and ends with a 19 defensive value.

Mystical Elf has a special damage power called Elven Magic; this will allow her to use Probability Control and Support. On her last 2 clicks Mystical Elf can just use Support as a standard power.

Mystical Elf is a Unique character and has a 5 click dial for just 50 points. She has “Yugi Muto”, Light, and Mystical and her keywords.

Mystical Elf has the Trap/Spell combat ability with a purple point cost of 7. When this character is KO’d or when building your force by paying the purple point cost, add this dial face down to your Trap/Spell pool. Give a friendly Yu-Gi-Oh! character a power action to set this dial from your pool by choosing either Spell or Trap and placing it face down on their card. The set character may use the effects of that Trap/Spell.

Spell: Graceful Dice – Give the set character a power action. The set character can use Probability Control, but only for its own attack rolls. When the set character misses with an attack, remove the spell.

Trap: Skull Dice – When the set character would be KO’d, you may activate this trap. Deal 1 unavoidable damage to each opposing character of 150 or more points within 6 squares. Remove the trap.

Thanks for reading and be sure to continue to check back as we look at more figures from the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set. Until then, always be ready to DUEL!!

Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix Series One: Blue-Eyes White Dragon!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Get ready to duel as never before as we begin previews of the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set!  Our inaugural preview from this hotly-anticipated HeroClix set is none other than Blue-Eyes White Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One Gravity Feed!

053-Blue-Eyes-White-Dragon

Blue-Eyes White Dragon begins the game taking the fight to your opposition courtesy of Running Shot.  A long 9-range value will allow it to attack up to 14 squares from where it begins its power action.  Blue-Eyes White Dragon can make a standard range attack with its printed 4 damage, or it can choose to use either Penetrating/ Psychic Blast or Pulse Wave, both granted to it by a special power called White Lightning.  Additionally, when Blue-Eyes White Dragon uses either, after actions resolve, hit characters are given an action token, and if they can’t be, then they are dealt 1 penetrating damage!

Leadership offers the potential to add an action to your action pool, as well as remove an action token from an adjacent friendly figure of a lower point value.   All this, and Impervious to reduce, if not evade entirely, damage altogether.   Blue-Eyes White Dragon will maintain this power set over its first three clicks with only a couple changes to its combat values.

Mid-dial, Blue-Eyes White Dragon switches tactics a little bit; it can now use Hypersonic Speed to make an attack in the middle of his movement, and then get to cover or get to a more strategic position.  Also,  Blue-Eyes White Dragon can now use standard Penetrating/ Psychic Blast to attack its foes, while Invulnerability replaces Impervious for damage reduction.

Late-dial, Blue-Eyes White Dragon may not have a lot of powers, but its attack and damage values climb steadily toward the end of its dial, ensuring its attacks remain devastating!  Blue-Eyes White Dragon’s Pulse Wave is sure to scatter its foes, and Toughness is available to offer a bit of damage reduction.

Blue-Eyes White Dragon possesses the Indomitable combat ability, which allows it to act two turns in a row with no fear of pushing damage.   Also, the Flight combat ability will allow increased maneuverability as well as the ability to carry an adjacent friendly character.   Blue-Eyes White Dragon can be played in theme with figures using the “Seto Kaiba” and Light keywords.   At 200 points, Blue-Eyes White Dragon brings solid consistent combat values and a great offensive power selection to your force; Blue-Eyes White Dragon will be a solid threat opponents will have to watch out for!
