I hope everyone’s still excited from the late October promos. As we welcome the harsh winter with solemn contemplation, let’s also celebrate that the Pendulum Zs have made their way into the hands of many happy people. Hopefully, they can be little packets of joy. I know I got a full set of wave 1 and they’re very fun! So here’s a super-early card for the Pendulum Z wave 2, Tropiamon! It’s a harsh, poisonous monstrosity that makes certain attack abilities completely unusable. Tropiamon is a vote for a more nail-biting game with counters and to-zero, and shuns self-satisfying nonsense like Jamming, Draw, and Crash. Look out Mystimon… And on top of that, it sports the new Grudge (hypocrite), and has a devastating bonus stopping all opponent HP recovery effects; plus being able to recycle any 1, which is super powerful and nicely sets up supporting from the top of the deck with your best trashed card, even if it’s your ACE!
