Opus X First Details!

From the Final Fantasy TCG Australia Facebook:

Opus X – Ancient Champions releases November 8th

Comprising 130 standard cards + 162 premium cards
10 exclusive cards from the new 2 player starter sets “Wraith VS Knights” plus a whopping 22 special Rare Full Art Cards! Players who go for a full display will also be rewarded with a special promotional card.

As the iconic Warrior of Light figure suggests, Opus 10 features numerous characters whispered of in myth and legend and sees the introduction of the new key word “Damage”, which initiates unique text effects once a player has taken a specified amount of damage. This opens up further tactical options, such as deliberately taking damage or holding off from dealing it in the early game, leading to even more exciting late-game developments than ever seen before! Players & collectors can also expect more original artwork by the renowned artists, as well as the introduction of a new spinoff from the main series: Final fantasy xii revenant wings

伊藤龍馬(Ryoma Ito) FINAL FANTASY XII REVENANT WINGS, FINAL FANTASY XI
泉沢康久(Yasuhisa Izumisawa) World Of Final Fantasy
浅見瑠比(Rubi Asami) Mobius Final Fantasy
上国料勇(Isamu Kamikokuryo)FINAL FANTASY XII
松田俊孝(Toshitaka Matsuda) FINAL FANTASY III
オグロアキラ(Akira Oguro)Final Fantasy IV

Looks like we have a full art Legend Squall for the box topper, and goddamn his effect is pretty sweet.

Translation provided by Byan of the r/FinalFantasyTCG Discord:

Squall 3CP 7k

SeeD Candidate

ETB: Choose 1 Character, if your opponent has 2 cards or less in their hand, dull it.

Damage 2 ETB: Choose 1 Character, dull it and freeze it

Damage 5 ETB: Choose 1 Forward, if it is dull, deal it 8k damage.

He seems pretty powerful, and shows off the new keyword that was previously mentioned on stream! The thing that I really want to know, is does he gain these abilities as you gain more damage, or do they replace each other? I’m really happy for Ice to get a useful on-curve forward, we’ve had far too many 4CP 7ks, and let’s not forget he’s searchable off of Laguna!

I guess we’ll find out about the new keyword closer to November!

Goodnight Sweet Prince – Dadaluma Banned

This surfaced this morning on the Square Enix FFTCG website.

https://fftcg.square-enix-games.com/na/news/regarding-banned-card-for-fftcg-constructed-format-matches?fbclid=IwAR1RHtC90-uK2bHCrRP2huA0NtFwnJtuHswRsUyWBwFODFCg_C24Et1su6k

■ Banned card

We have determined that Dadaluma [4-085H] will be banned from Standard Constructed Format matches. It will still be usable in Title Format matches.

■ Ban enforcement timing

July 19th, 2019 (simultaneous to Opus 9 release)

■ Reason for this decision

Since Opus 4, this card has long been a reigning presence in the landscape of this game, a card that players have always needed to be conscious of during everything from deck construction to actual matches, and it has acted as an obstruction to changes in the tournament landscape. As it stands now, the card’s strength is not so great as to be insurmountable; however, in order to prevent the tournament landscape from becoming too stagnant, we have determined that it will be a banned card.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.

That’s that, then. Fs in the chat for the most interesting 4 cost potato Earth had. RIP Dadaluma (2017-2019). He is survived by his wife Cactuar, and his daughter, Semih Lafihna.

(That puts our ban list to Gesper, Thaumaturge, and Dadaluma. For now.)
