It’s time to start previews for another pack in our inaugural cycle of Deck-Loadable Content! The adventures of the Bebop’s crew continue with these characters from the hit anime. Cause some grief to Spike and the rest of the crew with the incompetent Cowboy Andy; the revenge-seeking Gren; the immortal child, Wen; or Spike’s elusive dream girl, Julia.
Let’s kick things off with the saxophone maestro with a conflicted past, Grencia Mars Elijah Guo Eckener, or Gren for short.
In Cowboy Bebop, Gren is a former soldier and comrade to Vicious. Having been framed by Vicious and sent to military prison, Gren seeks nothing more than revenge on his fellow veteran of the Titan War. Gren weighs in with a hand size of 6 and 30 Vitality! He has the , , and symbols. In the anime, Gren has the plan of luring Vicious to Jupiter by arranging a deal for the Red Eye drug. And he can certainly make use of Red Eye in his deck. Gren’s Enhance rewards him for having multiple copies of a card in his Staging Area. With the cost for this ability being a (4+) check, just utilizing Red Eye to pass the check when checking a 3 yields a benefit! He can also pass checks more easily by removing a copy of a Foundation in his Staging Area from the discard pile — another reason to use the Red Eye to achieve his goal of revenge on Vicious!
Gren’s signature Attack, Falling Star’s Revenge, has some solid stats with a Speed of 4 and a Damage of 5. Stun: 1 improves its utility and the Enhance ability on it can help you build up your stockpile of a Foundation to rely on for Gren’s Character abilities.
Grencia still lives in the past. Memories of fond, if difficult, times before being betrayed consume his thoughts. We Were All Comrades protects those memories in two ways: Being able to draw from the past, Gren will be able to add a copy of this Foundation to his hand, which is useful for building up his Character Enhance or just for getting a decent Block. And, the Response can stop a slew of effects, from Fatality to Voices in the Dark, and even His Gift of Immortal Blood. Don’t let your opponent mess with your discard pile if you don’t want to by using We Were All Comrades!
The Cowboy Bebop Deck-Loadable Content will include four, new, playable Characters, two copies of an Attack for each Character, and two copies of a Foundation for each Character for a total of 20 foil cards. This DLC pack releases in 2020 for the UniVersus Collectible Card Game. You will be able to buy them at your Friendly Local Game Store or preorder them HERE!
