COTD 14/12/2016: Holding out for a hero.

I hear you Bonnie Tyler, I think I now know that feeling, we know both RRR's for Oracle Think Tank in this set of which one, Ammy, should really be a RRR at all. And after today's cards I only have more concerns building with one last hope to hold onto. But even of that last hope is true most of the support for it just flat doesn't work.



Divine Soul Martyr, Kuma-no-Kusubi



[AUTO](RC) Oracle:[Counter Blast (1)] When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at five cards from the top of your deck, search for up to one card with the oracle ability from among them, reveal it, put it into your hand, and put the rest on the bottom of your deck in any order. If you put a card into your hand, put this unit into your soul.


Oracle Restricted, On-Hit, Counterblast 1, Draw 1, send a card from hand to soul... rare...
RARE!
...



I can't even do this just what is this even? Where's the pressure, where's the advantage, where's the benefit of using this at all? Isn't funny how much a wash can stink?


Astrologer Miss Haze



[AUTO] Generation Break 1:[Soul Blast (1)] When this unit is retired from (GC), if a card was not put into your damage zone during this turn, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.


It's more useful slightly I guess, so long as I understand this correctly that is. Hardly fancy and is taking the same space that would usually belong to a sentinel which means this lady isn't going in any deck soon. An ideal card in a draft though so long as you have a G-Unit or an alternative means to activate Gen Break 1


Oracle so far has disappointed and failed to deliver but there is hope, thin and vain but hope we must hold. One thing can save this clan now, it all falls to the GR.

Till All Are One

P.S. I'm not even proof reading this one due to tired so if there's mistakes in translations I'll cover them later. But for now. G'Night.
