I can't imagine us not getting this.  I think the only US-originated franchise we didnt get the collab for was Baskin Robbins and that was during the weird earlier times so...

E:  Not only confirmed, but simultaneous release with JP, 6/25-7/8.  Make of that what you will.

The best advice I can give is not to chase endgame.  Find something you enjoy and just mess around.  Much less stressful.

Also find some way to seal your bank account if you're at risk of issues and are the spending type in the first place.  Nothing is worth it if you aren't fully prepared to deal with the very real risk of getting nothing, same as every other gacha game.

There are three odd "endgame" things now that you shouldn't pursue unless you have MAD stamina to spare: Alt. Arena (where DQ Hera's preemptive is 130,000), Arena 4, and 3P Dragon Rush.

Everything else is the game has been getting more and more reasonable as stats improve and cards get better awakenings.

Nissa.

Well I guess she can clear 9 turns of binds if I match a heal row.

I got two Lilianas! Might as well start the dupe train early, wouldn't be a collab if I didn't pull five copies of one card.

Probably going to use Monster Exchange to get one of the rarer monsters if I don't pull any. I like most of them, so probably just Jhoira because she's blue.

So ff, got any thoughts on Karn? I think it's funny that he went from an extremely universal card that slots no-brain into every deck in Magic to an extremely niche jammer lead in PAD...

Oh right, Commander, I don't think I ever mentioned but I got a Gabe a while ago. 

I don't recall if you said he preferred to be alone or not but did you want me to raise mine?  If so, what form?

I definitely don't use mine as a lead much anymore, he's more of a stunt lead than anything. If I do use him then it's paired with something else. So no need to raise yours as anything particular, but he is a great sub, so I definitely recommend using him.

Karn has 3 of those sexy 7c awakenings so if you assist over his relatively short 11 CD skill, he can still be an incredibly versatile murder-everything sub!

Using him as a lead, though... That's a challenge, since you need 7 jammers to fully activate. You'd probably need two Fenrir Viz to make the most of him.

Mmm, Uraska and the two red 5* from magic, I guess.

Might pull more, all the cards seem pretty solid overall.

I didn't realize at first how weird Belzenlok is. He shields you but also reduces your attack when you match a poison? That's interesting, I can't remember any other leader skill that works that way. Seems kinda bad, but interesting.

10x with no poisons, 5x and 50% damage reduction with. Seems interesting though the Devil restriction is annoying.  At the very least he is a pretty ok poison team enabler since he's literally Fenrir but for poison orbs.  I'm gonna try to find time to raise/skill one and maybe I'll finally evo/ult that Hel I've had for a while...

Kinda feel like the real killer is the lack of RCV multiplier for a lead that wants you to poison yourself. The least he could do is provide you some hearts. But in Magic he draws you cards in exchange for dealing damage to you (and you're not fully in control of how many cards, so he's a bit dangerous to play) so it makes sense that he makes you hurt yourself I guess...  :D

Not without problems, but god makes me feel dumb for investing into ideal for a good bit.

Oh I hope you all got into and beat that One-Shot Challenge that showed up from 10p-1a Eastern or you're not getting the material to make King Tyrannos when that's a thing.

(Of course beating the OSC just nets a HephDra, the dungeon for the other thing gets sent to your mailbox if you beat the OSC before it closed.)

(Oh and the dungeon for Borma, assuming you got it or have someone who will run it with you?  Have "fun.")

Saw it, had 70 stamina twenty minutes before it was going to expire, shrugged and did the Magic collab again. I guess I could have checked the limited dungeon schedule that conveniently exists now, but that's still an awfully harsh time frame.

Borma itself is neat enough, I suppose. "Farmable" Damage Absorb Null, while being a HELLA glass cannon lead.

X900 for matching five attacking colors and leaving <=6 orbs on the board? Sheeshus.

I'll have to get my King Flamtans together before I use up my day's worth of Borma.

I was pleasantly surprised at how super Gronia team could handle this dungeon, specially with 2-shotting Hephdra (Thaaanks dragon killers!) Now to laze about until I realize Borma can be done with one of my teams, I hear Anublos has no major difficulties?

I got frustrated by random triple poison skyfall deaths and just stoned for it eventually. Not a particularly glamorous finish, but I was glad to be done with it. (I assume we're talking about C10.)

Definitely so. D.Iza's wild ride frustrated me a lot before I worked out a good way through it with my current team. I imagine if I didn't have Mito on 'make hel stop breathing' duty, I'd feel much the same.

Without that poison skyfall, blessedly it wasn't that bad besides adjusting for the dual gravities. It felt a lot more annoying than hard though.

Finally got one of the rares from the Magic collab! It's Karn, easily the one I wanted the least, but it's much better than a fifth Liliana. Can't really do much with Karn, but his bonkers awakenings mean he can probably find a home somewhere eventually.
