Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to another preview of the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Three set! Today, we’ll be taking a look at some of the support monsters employed by “Yugi Muto,” namely Magician of Faith and Witch of the Black Forest!
Magician of Faith brings some excellent support powers to the table! Her dial begins with Stealth, Super Senses, Probability Control, and 6 range with a special attack power, “Mystical Blast.” This special power allows Magician of Faith to use Penetrating/Psychic Blast and, when she hits an opposing character with one Action Token, places a second Action Token on that character as well! Magician of Faith also has Phasing/Teleport, Energy Shield/Deflection, and Incapacitate to round out her defensive options throughout the dial. Additionally, her “Mystical” and “Yugi Muto” keywords allow Magician of Faith to team up with Dark Magician Girl from Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Two and grant Dark Magician Girl Stealth and Super Senses through her “Arcane Alliance” trait.
In addition, Magician of Faith retains the “Spell Return” trait that she is known for in the anime. Whenever Magician of Faith takes damage from an opposing attack and survives, you can recycle one of your previously used Spells! Let’s look at a Spell that “Yugi Muto” reused with Magician of Faith, Monster Reborn. Monster Reborn allows a set character to be given a power action to heal up to two clicks of damage between the set character and adjacent friendly characters. Then, when Magician of Faith takes damage after you have used Monster Reborn, you can return Monster Reborn to your Trap/Spell pool to use it again. Magician of Faith can even continue healing herself by repeatedly returning Monster Reborn and using it, so long as she is not KO’d!
Next up is our second Spellcaster of the day, Witch of the Black Forest!
Witch of the Black Forest has a trait that may seem familiar: “The Third Eye.” Like Sangan’s “Fiendish Support” trait, “The Third Eye” can remove tokens from adjacent friendly characters! Although “The Third Eye” only activates when Witch of the Black Forest is KO’d by an opposing attack, this trait allows you to remove Action Tokens from up to 300 points worth of figures! Witch of the Black Forest may be best used to move in front of high point friendly characters after they attack so that opposing figures have to KO her, triggering the trait.
Witch of the Black Forest also has 5 range, Phasing/Teleport, Energy Shield/Deflection, Precision Strike, and Enhancement. Remember that you can push Witch of the Black Forest to give her Enhancement for extra damage and bring her closer to activating her trait! With some strong range-centric powers, Witch of the Black Forest provides the perfect compliment to Sangan’s close combat support!
Be sure to stay tuned for our next Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Three previews as we look at some monsters that like to combine! Until then, keep your Millennium Eye on the prize!
