Should be added that it's part of the Weiß Schwarz (http://ws-tcg.com/products/) Cross-Over TCG gimmick.

[Edit]
Changed CCG to TCG because the url uses TCG =__=;

/me doesn't like the booster pack part.

I'll probably get a starters deck and leave it like that.

I'd play but I don't think anyone'd play with me.

On another note... 1300yen for a starter pack!? That's very cheap. NAMCO's finally being nice to us.  :D

How is WS as a cardgame, btw?
A few guys around me are gonna buy the trial deck at the end of the week (me included), but we have no idea about the rules.

Looking over the website, it seems like a pretty darn luck based game as opposed to skill, which bothers me somewhat.
(Although not that it matters too much, since I play Yugioh, which is pretty darn luck based as well. Not to mention the awesomeness of making a Makoto-Nanoha crossover deck.)


The I Want Haruka looks like she's bombing an undisclosed location.

Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG
Post by: Pizzaman on July 20, 2009, 04:23:15 am
At the local cardstore, without preorders.
More specifically, I'm gonna hit Amenity Dream at Kichijouji first (since a friend works here), and if they are out of stock, go to Amenity Dream at Shinjuku.

After that, if I still can't get it, I'll lurk around Akihabara and curse myself for not preordering.

and i doubt they both sell im@s cards, i even doubt they even know what im@s is...

looks the im@s cards are something that is impossible for me to get my hands on

How is WS as a cardgame, btw?

There's an awful almost non-explaining 2.5 minute anime of the game you know :0

Try looking around for some series called Weiss Survive and curse the fact that you wasted your time watching it..

I'd rather tap my Swamp, generate (B) and summon Makoto.
Then play Polymorph on her with me as the other polymorph material.

Cardstores don't just make profit from booster packs or single cards...
Card supplies!

And what else is better than card sleeves?
They'll fit other cards too, since WS is a "standard" size, and not a "Carddass" size like Yugioh.

It's not going to be the same that way, since no render is being used in the card.

But if it did, that would be a pretty strange looking card.

Going out to buy the deck in a hour, but a friend who works at the store already got his deck yesterday.
What I know so far:

- Some illustrations are new. Makoto is really handsome in one of the new art cards.

- ONLY includes Sun and Moon idols, since WS gives "color types" to their cards, and trial decks only include 2 colors max.

- A Yayoi card has the ability: "Ask your opponent to perform a 'hi-touch' with you. If he/she accepts, perform a 'hi-touch', then each player draws a card. Be careful not to 'hi-touch' too loudly."

- The "element" types are as follows:
Haruka - Music/Desserts
Makoto - Music/Sports
Yayoi - Music/Frog (wtf)
Chihaya - Music (a monotype)
Ritsuko - Music/Megane
Azusa - Music/Love
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG
Post by: RoninatorMarx on July 25, 2009, 03:53:53 am
nowano, is there a free template something that allows you to 'replicate' WS cards?

- A Yayoi card has the ability: "Ask your opponent to perform a 'hi-touch' with you. If he/she accepts, perform a 'hi-touch', then each player draws a card. Be careful not to 'hi-touch' too loudly."

Whoa. That made my day. XD
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG
Post by: h4ataraxia on July 25, 2009, 05:36:30 am

Sideways, so probably for those large storage boxes, not single deck cases.

The deck consists of these cards. Most are at multiples of 4, some at 2, and the limited Character cards are at 1 each.

TCG買うなら、やっぱりアニメショップよりカードショップで買ったほうが得(定価以下、プロモ貰えるetc)
俺は基本的にアメニティドリームで買ってるよ、会員証持ってたら10%オフだからね。

I bought my deck at Amenity Dream @ Kichijouji (http://wikiwiki.jp/mtgshop/?%A5%A2%A5%E1%A5%CB%A5%C6%A5%A3%A5%C9%A5%EA%A1%BC%A5%E0%20%B5%C8%BE%CD%BB%FB%C5%B9), though the one at Shinjuku should have more cards on sale (albeit at a slightly higher price due to difference in rent.)

As a side note, Kichijouji is a nice small town tailored for otakus.
It has a cardstore, second-hand game store, Tora and even Games Workshop, something quite rare in Japan, all in the same neighborhood.

Btw, cards tend to get expensive if they are power cards, but in the case of WS, they tend to get expensive if the illustration is cute.
Like the 20K yen Louise card.

It seems a lot of artists pitched in for the artwork on these cards.
I can recognize Shoutarou Tanaka's artwork on that Miki card, for instance. At least, I think it's his artwork.

I recently battled against my friends Zero no Tsukaima/Nanoha hybrid deck using the Imas deck right out of the box.
It didn't perform as bad as I expected (at least for a pre-constructed deck), so it seems like Imas has high card power.

This generates a problem:
High card power means more popularity from general WS players, meaning higher single card prices.

That's the power of the card. Iori has 8000 points because it's a level 2 card (Which means she's harder to summon).

Not my money, so the cards went back to the friend who bought the box.

However we pulled this:

Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG
Post by: Harrason on August 23, 2009, 09:35:30 am
Recently i got interested in this TCG. Happens that there's a group of people here that's dedicated to bringing Weis Schwarz to Singapore and they have a shop selling these cards. Told me that their stock of im@s boosters are going to come here next week or the week after.

I don't have pics now but i'll try to scan any cards i have in the future. Just for the lulz i'll probably be scanning the fan-translated game manual.

Lastly, if there's still any more questions regarding how this card game is played...
This (http://www.youtube.com/user/dogmapily#play/uploads) link will help.

Edit : Database (http://www9.atwiki.jp/ws_wiki/pages/1050.html) of the iDOLM@STER cards.

Rarities in the following.

Common ones.
C = Common, U = Uncommon, R = Rare.(RR = Double, RRR = Triple) SR = Special Rare. Special Rare is not used by itself, but with R and RR, in this case meaning that its a Special Double Rare. Triple Rare is just like Special Rare, but is more rare than Special Rare due to certain patterns(they didn't explain this). Similarly, RRR is used with R and RR. (Correct me if i am wrong)

Rarity terminology used only by Weis Schwarz.
CC = Climax Common, CR = Climax Rare.

Climax cards are cards which "relieve" a particular memorable scene from the series. In im@s's case it'll be cards such as "I Want" and other m@ster songs, as well as the 765 Productions card people got from pre-ordering im@s SP back in February, if anyone hasn't forgotten.

The trial deck section below has the list of the cards you get from the starter deck. The text description(not Special Effects text. Its the text that you see in all trading card games for the lulz) from the TD is different from those you get in the booster packs. For instance the TD's I Want's description is "そこに跪いて!", but the one that you get in the booster pack's description is "もっと啼いてみせて!". The image may vary as well(meaning they have the same card name, but different images, for example facial expressions, or the art).

PR stands for Promotional Cards. 765 Productions is an example of such a card.

As you can see, the rarest in the im@s database as of today for a non-Climax card would be a RR SR rarity type. As for a Climax card, it would be a CR SP.

P.S. That Haruka card that Pizzaman pulled out was a R SR. Congratulations to your friend though because he gets to keep it.  :P

I have no clue if these are limited edition or if they'll continue to be around, but I saw some of them on Dearly Station 2.5 XD They look like nice cards (though, I've never done trading cards before. Missed out on the Pokemon card phase). I especially liked the printouts they had of the MA song cards...
I know both of these are out now, but I don't know the difference between the top set of cards and the bottom set, either. 8 in a pack, 1 pack for 330 yen?

The top one is a trial deck. It has the same 50 cards you see in all starter packs in it. (Pizzaman posted about it a few pages back)

The one below is a Booster pack box. A box has 20 packs. A pack has 8 cards. Buy a pack for 330, or 20 packs(the box) for 6600, with a slight bonus(a playing mat for instance) along with it.

Edit : Adding on, the images that you see below are the stuff that comes along with it. I myself am buying an entire box.

I'm sorry if it's already been posted in the forum, but can you purchase these off the internet, or do you have to go to a store to buy them (because then, I'm out of luck XDD)

Oh! and is that 50-cards + etc. for 1300 yen still for sale or was that a limited thing? @_@

The playing mat is a special bonus for those who order by the carton, not by single boxes.

That being said, a LV2, 0 cost hand-retrieval seems broken to me.
But then, WS itself is a super luck-based game.

I was always a fan of Weis Schwarz since the Persona 3 TCG came out (which wasn't that long ago tbh), so seeing the Im@s ones make me want to buy the pack for the sake of just staring at the art (like most x: )

I remember seeing an ad for the Im@s Weis Schwarz cards on Nico.  Funny enough, the one I want the most is the freckin' playing mat...
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Harrason on August 24, 2009, 10:37:33 pm
Oh. Well that doesn't really matter. I'll try to strike a deal with a few guys owning a Weiss Schwarz shop in town about it. Most likely they'll buy several boxes at the least, or even 1 carton. I'll try to see whether i can get my playing mat from there. I am definitely not going to pay 1.1k USD for that mat, but i don't mind paying 150 - 250 USD for it.

At first i wanted to buy it for the sake at staring at the art as well. But it seems that there's quite a big community of Weiss Schwarz players here(especially in the shop i mentioned earlier, you'll definitely see some of those players on weekends) so i want to try it out. If it grows on me long enough, i might even buy the other decks.

Come to think of it, i bought that deck right off at an event and it so happens that the shop hosted this Weiss Schwarz tournament and there's a huge load of players, and one of the 3 lucky draw prizes during that event happens to be a im@s PR card(1.5k power Haruka), but too bad i can't participate in it.

In a nutshell:
A super lucksack game where there is always a chance for damage to be canceled.
Also, milling doesn't exist. But yet, it's so enjoyable since you beat your opponent in the face with your idol.

Also, got my Im@s sleeves today at last:
(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z288/niwatorimeat/Imasleeves1.jpg)

They are pretty darn nice, and they don't slip like some newly opened sleeves do.

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z288/niwatorimeat/Imasleeves2.jpg)

Though chances are, with so many people buying the Im@s WS boosters here, it'll be an Im@s card.

To all people in Singapore and those abroad who will be flying to Singapore to attend Anime Festival Asia 2009 in November 21st and 22nd, rejoice, for you are given a second chance.

Bushiroad, the distributor of Weiβ Schwarz, has decided to bring the exclusive Comiket merchandise in this year's Summer Comiket to Singapore's Anime Festival Asia! There's very limited copies to grab for this one, so you are going to need to wake up REALLY early if you want this. Oh, and for every 15 dollars purchased in Bushiroad's shop, you'll be given a free Haruka PR card, and if you attend their workshop/join the competition, you can get Ritsuko's PR card!

I added a new page for the wiki regarding WS terminology as i am going to translate character cards and effect texts.(I won't do it immediately) I've also added a lot of trivia that i know of regarding some WS cards. The trivia text may however be influenced too deeply by opinion and may not look like an actual wikipedia article. If anyone would be free, please cleanup my trivia text and change certain words if necessary. I hope the trivia information is helpful to anybody who might wonder about the stuff they do for WS.

I also edited texts in the Promotional section, mainly "Card Geeks" and "AFA". Both Card Geeks and AFA are Singaporean-based, but these cards are mainly given out in Japan in their original version of Monthly Shop tournaments and the World Grand Prix leadup tournament. Both Malaysia and Hong Kong also offered the Ritsuko PR card in their World Grand Prix leadup tournaments as well.

Finally, i've changed certain texts accordingly regarding the rarities SP and SR due to the addition of the WS terminology page which also included card rarities and trivias. SRs, RRRs and SPs are referred to as parallels by the WS community and also Bushiroad.


Some information for Dearly Stars which can be added in the future. Extra packs are vastly different from Booster packs. These are usually limited print(but they go for around 6 to 8 months at the least, so there's time) and have effects that are usually better than booster packs. There are also limited cards*. Cards in Extra packs have only 3 rarities, R, C and SPs.

* Most extra pack series have 27 versions, some had 18 versions, Dearly Stars had 36 versions, and 3 others have 45 versions, 2 out of these 3 have 2 seperate volumes(which is a combination of a 27 card volume and 18 card volume). All of them have parallel versions.(a.k.a each card also had a holographic version) Lastly, out of the entire collection, 1/3 of them will be Rs, 2/3 Cs. For Dearly Stars, 12 of them will be Rs, the rest 24 Cs.

1 Extra pack box has 36 cards, with 6 packs each having 6 cards. Out of these 6 cards, 2 of them are Rs and 4 of them Cs. (Its very hard, if not impossible to get all non-parallel card versions by buying 1 box even for series with 27 versions) Lastly, unlike booster boxes which only has 1 holographic/signed out of 160 cards in box, getting holographic cards by buying extra packs is relatively easier. Much easier, in fact. From what i heard(not proven yet, but will be verified in the future), out of these 6 packs, 3 of them will contain 1 holographic card.

For people who are interested in looking at Dearly Stars cards and their effects ahead of its release*, head over to Bushiroad's WS page daily starting from around mid to late-December. Bushiroad always disclose certain cards and abilities ahead of its series' release at the main page. Right now its not there yet because they had to fill in for Persona 4 Booster cards(Released in December 5th) and later Suzumiya Haruhi Booster cards(Released in December 19th).

* = Only applies to the main page. Card list will NOT be updated with these series until the day of release. If you miss the card, you probably won't see it again either for a while, or all the way till the day of its release.

Hope this information benefits anyone who's interested in Weiβ Schwarz and especially those who can't wait to look at Dearly Stars' cards and want to look at them before its release at January 9th.

(http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d93/hyperflint/ws_today_b1.jpg)

One of the best Change effects that i've ever seen, only requires a Climax as the prerequisite, and putting this card into the Clock slot(which usually doesn't mean anything much in Level 1).

But then again, this is Eri's signature card(Card's name is Eri's full name, all cards with their full name are signed), so of course that's a given.  ;D

Hi guys, new to this forum.

Anyway to provide for more info on the trading card game Weiss Schwarz for Imas,

This site has all the cards translated:
http://ws.nk-ds.org/index.php/card-translations/

The full gallery and prices of the Imas cards can be found here.
http://orenoturn.com/476.html
or http://www.big-web.tv/ver2/ws_index.php then select The Idolmaster from the drop down list.

The Imas WS boosters have signs instead of foils.

Also Imas 2 is coming out for WS this year so I am going to buy those and hope Jupitor is not included in it.

Feel free to ask me any question about WS Imas.

Hi, I'm new here too.

Guess no one's playing anymore cuz imas cards are severely underpowered now compared to new series like milky holmes or melty blood.

But yeah, imas 2 is on the way and i  hope they give us good cards.

Also hoping that jupiter is not in there too.  ;D

I've just started collecting all imas signed cards, 3 is on the way (haruka, hibiki & one of the twins).
Will get the rest soon, need to find the cheapest ones.  ;D

Yea with all the newer series being more imbalanced, Imas seems to be a bit underpowered.
Hopefully Bushiroad makes some imbar shit for Imas 2 but the current PRs they are releasing aren't that powerful yet.

That said the PR cards for the Imas 2 Limited Edition aren't worth the price tag coz one of them is a vanilla and another is a level 0. =/

Which country are you from? By any chance Singapore? Lol.

Nope, not singapore.  ;D
The extrapacks are still quite good though, especially the ryo cards.

From what i know there's already 4 PRs for imas 2. Iori (RK groups will be green), 2 game PRs & 1 magazine PR.
You cant judge the powerlevel from PRs. they're mostly exists only as bragging rights for collectors. ;D
By the way, i'm curious. How much is the price for those PRs?
If the cards are not good, i'll probably just collect the signs and not play.

Lol I don't know how much but the difference between the regular edition (55 USD) vs the limited edition (100 USD) is about 45 USD on play-asia.

So I won't pay more than 45 USD for the 2 PRs......

Anyway are you fanatic enough to collect the signs? I didn't but I went to get the RRs coz I value usefulness over bragging rights sadly. Lol.

Before you put a dent in your wallet for the PRs  ;D, see amiami's price. The difference is not that big and there's a load of other extras besides the cards.
Yes, the price will jump because we'll need to import the cards but still imo, not worth $45.

By the RRs you mean the RR Haruka? I was gonna collect them, but i think it's too underpowered.
Instead i bought a playset of Deary Stars back then. Ryo & Ai can still compete with other more powerful series while Eri is .... well ..... at least she's easy on the eye.  ;D
No regrets in getting them especially when i get them for a bit cheaper.

And about the signs, i just started collecting them although i can safely say that i won't be buying them with orenoturn's price, that's insane.  :D

Hmm I haven't fixed up an Imas deck after I dismantled my Blue Green deck. Its the lvl 2 Hibiki which can bring out another lvl 2 with its climax effect.

Was originally planning to do a blue red deck with the RR Haruka and the lvl 3 R Chihaya but somehow gotten lazy. Lol.

Not too interested on the signs atm coz it will break my wallet like you said. Lol.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: lluzz on March 10, 2011, 04:09:09 pm
Red blue is nice, most of the good cards is in there.
Hard to find cards here since the community is very small plus imas is not popular here so no chance of any1 selling singles.
Was planning to make a yellow deck but ... no cards. I'll probably buy it if i can find someone selling playsets of the important cards.

Yeah those signs are abit expensive, but not as much as you think. ;D
I already bought 9 of it and an imas 2 PR card, still in transit.
When i have it i'll post the pictures & tell u how much they cost me.

I got a lot of the PRs from tournaments in Singapore.

Lazy to take a photo of the commons and uncommons so I just piled them up in a stack. Lol.

The CDs were bought from Mandrake in Japan and they had the PRs in them and are worth it.

If that's only some of your collections then i think you are more than able to afford those signs.  ;D

Well thats well only part of it but I didn't like the signs for the first series coz the art wasn't too nice and some of the abilities of the signed cards were bad.

Oh yea there is a 1/6 chance to get a signed card from every 6 trial decks.
If you want the confirmed sign card, you need to buy a set of 6 trial decks.
I'll just buy one and maybe the signed coz I don't need 6 trial decks of the same thing. Lol.

Well Yukiho and Mami were always yellow but Yayoi is new. Hopefully yellow won't be so shitty.
The extra packs only had like 3 cards for yellow and not even a climax card. =/

Hope for more Yukiho cards so I can make a proper deck of her instead of a fan deck which will lose to the other decks out there.

Whoa! That was really a bargain!

I also collect WS cards. I have a all the 100 from THE iDOLM@STER booster and a set of non parallel versions of THE iDOLM@STER Dearly Stars.

Recently I purchased all the PR cards via an eBay seller, so now I must focus on the signed cards (I only have Ami).

By the way, I'm selling or trading all the Dearly Stars parallel cards if someone is interested. I have a Ryo signed card too:

And if someone is interested, I have pictures at my blog (http://blog-soth.blogspot.com/search/label/Wei%C3%9F%20Schwarz), too.

@soth : Already have a set of dearly stars foil.  ;D

Yeah it's cheap but it will be a loooong time before i can get my hands on it.
The proxy im using is out of japan due to the nuke crisis.

Are you a collectors only (not playing)? It seems you bought many series.

Yes, I only collect them.
I collect iM@S cards and the ones based on TYPE-MOON works (Fate, Melty Blood, Canaan).

I thought the forum is down forever so i didn't check here again until now.  ;D
Tried collecting too, but after i find out imas have lots of PRs, i quit. Some of the PRs are expensive even in auctions like the wedding dress Miki & Iori.

Wow, the you're collecting 5 series? If im not mistaken FSN have 1 extrapack & Canaan is expansion from Phantom.

Some of my loots have arrived.

Been some time since I came here. lol

I'm a heavy player of iM@S in WS, and despite the overpowered newer series, I still stick to neo standard iM@S (S07 + SE04 + S14). I've built and ran many kinds of iM@S decks, but my two main decks are still the blue/red defensive deck and the Futari twins deck. Not the Dearly Stars Ai or Ryo decks, surprisingly, even though I have them.

Current Collection (http://s976.photobucket.com/albums/ae250/Shdwfalcon/Weiss%20Schwarz/The%20Idolmaster/)

And even though IM/SE04 has only three yellow cards, the twins card is useful in most decks, and the Yukiho 1/0 backup is very handy in an Ai deck. The Iori card, however, is another matter. lol

There's a few kinds of yellow decks possible. I've made and ran an Iori deck, a Clothes Change deck, a yellow/red soul rush + salvaging deck, and even a Yukiho deck, but the only one that stands strong is the Futari twins deck. During its time, its packed full of power AND soul, and is something to watch out for. Now, however, I was forced to mod it to focus on soul damage as its power level cannot match the newer series.

For a red/blue Haruka/Chihaya deck, its more towards a defensive deck, one which can hit fairly high power levels with backup supports on opponent's turns. My current deck can easily reach 8500 at level one with backup, and that is against players who are generally aware of my characters' abilities. If push comes to shove, with a full level one front row, I can set the support up to rev one of them up to 10000 power after counter step, and that's not even involving the RR Haruka. At level two, I've ever pushed one of my character up to 15500 power during counter step. But usually, the general power level hovers around 12000 to 14000 after backup. And the best part? This deck is versatile enough to allow some form of card control for your hand, stock, and even library.

If you are interested in my deck lists, let me know. But be reminded that my decks are tuned to my playstyles, so you might have to retune the list to suit your own playstyle.

So, that's a question I had. What's the difference between Neo-Standard and Standard? I get the feeling Neo-Standard is restricted to one series, but that's only the feeling I get.

I remember wondering how an Azusa-centric deck would work, though. I thought about it for a while, then I realized I didn't actually own any of the cards. I then thought about why I thought about it so much. ^^;
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Shdwfalcon on April 25, 2011, 04:17:27 pm
You are correct.

Neo Standard is a series restriction for deck builds. For example, IM/S07 (iM@S) can mix with IM/SE04 (iM@S Dearly Stars) and is still considered a Neo Standard deck, since its considered under the same series. Other examples are Persona 3 with Persona 4, Little Busters with Little Busters Ecstasy and Kud Wafter, etc.

Standard is where no series restriction are imposed for deck builds. You can mix cards from any series together into a deck, and a Standard tournament will still accept your deck.

Take note, as some cards are banned ONLY in Neo Standard, and vice versa.

Right now, a deck around Azusa is, I would say, not very strong. She has like only two useful staple cards (IM/S07-078R 癒し系あずさ (http://) & IM/S07-085U ゆっくりのんびり あずさ (http://)), but to make her as the "main character" in the deck, her cards are a little lacking.

If you are really interested, here's a sample:

2x IM/S07-099CC 目が逢う瞬間 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S07_099.jpg)

I went for single colour (blue) for this sample, to make things simpler and more Azusa-focused. The biggest problem is stock and hand size. IM/S07-080R 三浦 あずさ's change is pay 3 stock discard one card, just to pull out a level 2 7500 power. A level 2's base power is at 9000. Despite the drop encore ability and the opponent's turn power boost, it still doesn't really help you maintain your hand or field for long.

However, the support choice is rather simplified, since once you reach level 1 onwards, your main support is IM/SE04-33C 夢を想う あずさ; you do not have any level 3. You can opt for a IM/S07-078R 癒し系あずさ for power boost, or a IM/S07-079R 研究熱心 律子 for counter power, or just have two IM/SE04-33C 夢を想う あずさ in your backrow.

For a fan/fun deck, its perfectly playable, you have to play quite defensively and tactically. Tournament level-wise, however, I won't recommend this. If you insist, do wait for iM@S2 (IM/S14) to be released. Hopefully then, there will be better Azusa cards.

Post by: Cael K. on April 26, 2011, 06:40:34 am
Yeah, that's what I kinda feared. They didn't look that strong at first glance, so she seemed relegated to the Lv. 1 Chihaya combo and support. I thought her power pump (夢を想うあずさ) was completely overshadowed by Ritsuko's, but I guess you can get that out a level earlier when I look at it. At best, I thought Climax synergy bounce, but just off hand, that seemed a bit hard to pull off.

Eventually, I drifted off to splicing in a lot of Ryou, and a little bit of... everyone that appeared in his scenario (if only two Level 0's). It was just a mental exercise in the end, but I think it was fun thematically - Azusa appears in Ryou's scenario, so just stick in everybody that did in some form or another and poof. Instant theme deck. I remember Azusa, Yumeko, and Ryou were mains. Moe Moe Gyaon, or something.

Now you got me thinking about a game I can't play. Dang it. ^^;

The problem with WS is that it is a card game with limited number of cards.
It will suits series with some main characters plus some sidekicks but it didn't go well with imas who have 12 main charas (more if you count the DS girls).
Eventually there will be ppl like you who have your fave chara relegated to support status.

IMO, the most glaring part of these are the twins.
You cant make a mono yellow deck without the twins as they handle support & attack themselves while iori & yukiho are relegated to fillers.

@Cael K.

The shooting Azusa is costly. I had a standard music trait deck that incorporate this combo, but even so, to shoot more than once per game will put me more into the disadvantage zone instead. Even though I had no problem building up at least ten stock by then.

If you want to have Azusa in a themed deck, an option is a Missing Moon deck, pure blue. It plays better than the Azusa deck I listed then.

Below is a decklist of one of my still-active decks. It was build for a Missing Moon theme, from whatever remaining spare cards I have left that can be used.

You should be able to get a general idea of how it works. lol Quite straightforward.

Ryo deck is pretty straightforward to build. Throw in four copies of every Ryo card in the EP (including Dazzling World), and add the following:

@lluzz

I do like it being that scattered in a way, since each card focus on only one character. The only non-PR cards to date that features more than one character in a card is IM/SE04-10 C 凸凹コンビ 涼&夢子 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E5%87%B8%E5%87%B9%E3%82%B3%E3%83%B3%E3%83%93_%E6%B6%BC%EF%BC%86%E5%A4%A2%E5%AD%90.jpg) and IM/SE04-20 C 明るい親子 愛&舞 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E6%98%8E%E3%82%8B%E3%81%84%E8%A6%AA%E5%AD%90_%E6%84%9B%EF%BC%86%E8%88%9E.jpg). From a collector's point of view, its actually better that way.

But like you said, its not really nice to see characters you like getting slotted towards the sidelines in terms of gameplay. That I gotta admit.

And that yellow part, its true that the twins have a slightly bigger slice of the pie. But still, Iori and Yukiho decks are still form-able and playable, though, like the Azusa deck, is not exactly tournament standard. A Yukiho deck is more towards a Clothes Change (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E8%A1%A3%E8%A3%85%E5%A4%89%E6%9B%B4.jpg) deck. For now.

I've dismantled my Yukiho deck, but my Iori deck still exists. Here is the list:

Never really paid attention to Iori's cards & the only Yukiho that i like is the 2/2/8000 that gets +2000 at your turn if there's Clothes Change in the memory.

Its not that you cant make decks from iori & yukiho, but the whole yellow color is kinda support for the twins.
Not that i complains. Actually they're the most interesting decks out of all imas cards.
You pump them up and hulk smash your opponent in the face .... and then got trampled at your opponent's turn because they revert back to cute little girls.  ;D

I dont have many booster imas cards, only extrapacks. My deck is a Ryo-Ai deck.
Not too good though, need alot of luck to make the deck ran smoothly.

Ryo deck is pretty straightforward to build. Throw in four copies of every Ryo card in the EP (including Dazzling World), and add the following:

4x IM/SE04-26 R 事件の予感 律子 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E4%BA%8B%E4%BB%B6%E3%81%AE%E4%BA%88%E6%84%9F_%E5%BE%8B%E5%AD%90.jpg)
4x IM/S07-046 U 寄り道 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S07_046.jpg)
3x IM/S07-032 R 動物大好き響 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:HibikiTC01.jpg)
3x IM/S07-037 U 気まぐれな美希 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S07_037.jpg)
4x IM/S07-049 CC Next Life (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:NextlifeTCGhibiki.jpg)

The remaining ten cards is up to you. LOL

Heh, heh... yeah, I think a Ryou deck won a tournament somewhere, and I saw nothing but Ryou cards in the deck list. Not a lot of thought involved, I guess you just throw him down and start drop kicking people.

Though thanks for the advice, and especially the links. Took a while to write, huh?

Well, during its time, even the opponent have to think twice when he wants to trample over your twins. Now, he doesn't even have to put in a single thought, because there's no way your counters can even match his power, much less overpower in return. Also, now, even a 6500 power can't even overpower a new series level one cost one character, I have to rely on my 10500 power character to try to contain opponent's advantage while my twins side attack.

And Ryo, as a neo-standard deck, have a major weakness. Its weak in late game, so you have to smack your opponent dizzy BEFORE your level one starts to lose its power advantage. The whole intention of a Ryo deck is to trample all over your opponent during level zero and one, to the point where he has resources problem once he reaches level two. Its a nice balance, to me, that is.


And about the preview im@S2 card:

Card Name: Casual Clothes Yayoi
Card Number: IM/S14-T03 TD
Type: Character
Level: 0
Cost: 0
Trigger: -
Power: 3000
Soul: 1
Traits: Music, Frog

Effect:
[Auto] When this card is put into stage from your hand, if your opponent has a "Casual Clothes Yayoi" on his field, both players may agree to do a high five. If a high five is done, both participating players add the top card of his deck to his stock. (Please note the volume.)

Actually Ryou doesn't have to be neostandard. It can be mixed with blue for the lvl 3/2 Chihaya for power when you are in the higher levels.

That said, the recent tourney had 3 Imas deck lists in the top and thats even b4 Imas 2 boosters come out.

This is my last hope for WS coz I don't really enjoy a game where you have a dominating field but you lose to luck (unable to cancel). Happened too many times.

It can be mixed, but there might be some stock issue. With the 3/2 Miki, all you need is just 2 of that green event counters in your memory, and the chances of having to use that event as counter is still pretty good.

And what are the three decks like?

Well they most will play Blue and a bit red.
Sometimes green for Ryou.

Blue for the Lvl 2 Chihaya which changes into Lvl 3 and Red for that expensive RR Haruka.

Lol you beat me to posting the card of the day.

Anyway Bushiroad is very good at
1) Printing vanillas which are reprints from other series with a different name, trait and colour.
2) Taking screen shots from games, anime or novels.

so I am not very suprised.

Anyway this confirms that the Trial Deck will be Red and Yellow.
I rather have a 1/1 7k coz there is already a 1/0 5.5k Ai from Idolmaster Extra Pack which can change from a Lvl 0.....

The 1/0 5.5k Miki is useless compared to the 1/0 5.5k Ai which can change out at Lvl 0.
Also the Imas EP has some cards which have synergy with Ai.
I doubt any cards will have synergy with Miki coz they need to feature 12 idols while the Imas EP featured only 3 idols.

There are no 1/1 7ks coz 1/1 7k was introduced around the time Haruhi boosters came out which was after Imas. That's why people are using 1/1 7.5k Ryou.

Post by: Shdwfalcon on May 03, 2011, 04:38:30 pm
Saw the three IM decklists. Not surprising, since the combination of Chihaya and Ai/Miki at late game is easily the strongest and most balanced/stable lv2/3 build in iM@S, and being red/blue means the 2/1 Ritsuko support and the sleeper Haruka (S07-51 RR) are available. Late game support with early game hand setup and stock control.

I ran a tri-colour Lv3 iM@S deck before, based off a friend's tri-colour Lv3 Haruhi deck, and I can say, it can be pretty scary. Eight Lv3 characters in total, every single one can appear at Lv2, all at a pretty low cost. Seeing the decklists, I suddenly feel the urge to rebuilt back my Lv3 deck. lol

(Hint to Zero: Ask Edwen of RC if you are interested about my iM@S Lv3 tri-colour deck. XD)

In the current IM series, including the Dearly Stars, the strongest Lv3 is the Song Goddess Chihaya (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E6%AD%8C%E3%81%AE%E5%A5%B3%E7%A5%9E_%E5%8D%83%E6%97%A9gjjjhgjpg.jpg). And if you think its because of the change ability, I can tell you this: The change ability doesn't even tally up to 50% of the reason.

IM/S07-082 R 歌の女神 千早 (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:%E6%AD%8C%E3%81%AE%E5%A5%B3%E7%A5%9E_%E5%8D%83%E6%97%A9gjjjhgjpg.jpg) is considered my "神牌" in Weiss Schwarz, and its not for nothing. =)

lluzz, this Lv3 Haruka IS a TD exclusive card. And I'm predicting five different TD exclusive cards for IM/S14's TD. The climax, however, isn't, and so will appear in the boosters. This Lv3 is decently strong, I would say.

==================================================

Card Name: Traditional Idol! Haruka
Card Number: IM/S14-104 TD
Type: Character
Level: 3
Cost: 2
Trigger: 1 Soul
Power: 10000
Soul: 2
Traits: Music, Sweets

Effect:
[Auto] [1] When this card is put into stage from your hand, you may pay the cost. If you do, deal one damage to your opponent. (Damage cancellation still applies)

[Auto] When you play a climax card into your climax slot, during this turn, this card's power +1500.

Flavour Text:
Today, I will sing any song!

==================================================

Card Name: GO MY WAY!!
Card Number: IM/S14-T15 TD
Type: Climax
Level: -
Cost: -
Trigger: 2 Soul
Power: -
Soul: -
Traits: -

Effect:
[Auto] When this card is put into your climax slot from your hand, take the top card of your library and put it into your stock. During this turn, all your characters gain +1 soul.

Normally I prefer to heal 1 clock but shooting for 1 damage is good too coz if you can kill your opponent, why bother to heal or hope for KAMI CANCEL! (Cancelling 3 times in a row.)

The card number is 105 so it is an exclusive card for the TD. I expect 2 of it to be inside.
The climax synergy is so so. I rather put in the climax I want which is the same as Go my way and has synergy with the RR Haruka from the first booster.

Also the card does not say when it comes into play from change so I guess a level 2 cannot change into this early game. Ah well, wait for the boosters for some level 2s which can change to level 3 then.

"The climax synergy is so so. I rather put in the climax I want which is the same as Go my way and has synergy with the RR Haruka from the first booster."

Ah, zero, you don't need to SPECIFICALLY use Go My Way to get the +1500 power, the card's effect states "When you put A climax card into your climax slot", not "When you put GO MY WAY!! into your climax slot". There's no climax synergy what-so-ever. That's what makes this decently strong in my opinion.

And why bother about being able to change out at Lv2? The pay one shoot one damage is for finishing moves, I'd rather hold this and release it at Lv3 instead of changing it out earlier on. Look at it this way, give it a pay two discard one to change, let's say the Lv2 is one cost, you will need four stock to change out AND shoot one. If that one stock is used for shooting characters, retrieval, or tutoring, being able to change out at Lv2 is definitely a good option.

They should be doing this sooner, making TD's lv3 exclusive (not just with imas).
Since each color only got 1 lv3 and TD cards is almost always a common (somethimes uncommon), the color represented in the TD will be denied a decent finisher.

Let's say you're building a red blue deck and can only put 1 kind of lv3 in it. You sure as hell wont be using haruka.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Shdwfalcon on May 16, 2011, 05:06:44 pm
Ah, they have already done it before. To Aru Majutsu no Index, and Shakugan no Shana are currently (and also happen to be the most recent releases at the time of this post) the only ones with TD exclusive Lv3 characters. Im@s2 will be the third. Unless I miss out some older series which had them.

Don't be surprised when people are using two or more different Lv3 in their decks. I'm guilty of that, and even ran three different Lv3 characters before. Ultimately, its up to personal play style and preference.

"Since each color only got 1 lv3 and TD cards is almost always a common (somethimes uncommon), the color represented in the TD will be denied a decent finisher."

I would agree on that, except that recently, from Milky Holmes onwards, almost every single Lv3 character ended up in the R or RR category, and more are being slotted into the RR group. Which isn't exactly nice for casual players in general, since they don't actually have a "cheaper" alternative to a Lv3 character. Getting a Lv3 is not funny, when two of them are RR and one is R. That leaves one in U, which will hamper casual players in more ways than money.

And today's card of the day (S14-T01 TD 私服の雪歩  (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S14-T01TD.jpg)) looks decently strong too.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: lluzz on May 17, 2011, 09:09:08 pm
Yeah just recently. I mean they should've think about it sooner.
I know, i used 2 lv3s in my deck. I mean if you can only choose 1 in a red blue deck, you're certainly will not go for haruka.

Imo, they're going the right way. lv3 should be either R or RR only. It's your bomb, finisher.
If your finisher is just a mediocre C/U card, tough luck, you only get 1 kind of lv 3.
Basically WS is an expensive game, more so than other card games. So i think for WS players/collectors, cheap is really not an option.  ;D

Shdwfalcon, you're doing the wiki about Imas WS?
Got some correction for you.

http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S14-108PR.jpg
These 2 PRs, if you look really closely then you'll realise that the logo is not Idolm@ster 2 but Idolm@ster Anime.
Kinda gives you a spoiler that there will be another imas expansion after this one.
Of course IF the anime became a hit which i doubt it.  ;D
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Shdwfalcon on May 18, 2011, 05:59:55 pm
Yea, I noticed about the logo, but since the cards are printed under serial code IM/S14, its still classified under the series which is labeled The iDOLM@STER 2, so I'm not going to separate them out. Still, thanks for the heads up, I'm gonna put that logo information into the remarks slot.

Ah, I have a Yoshina/Hecate deck which uses the Lv3 Hecate (SS/W14-085 U). Its only an uncommon, its climax synergy is nothing special, but that heal one is enough. No need for some random powerful ability. I agree that the Lv3 Haruka from iM@S (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:441x600-2009110400342.jpg) really is crap, its undeniable. But its a common, its prechange ability is a pay one drop one to change. Generally, they should have one Lv3 under uncommon, the rest can be R, and prolly one RR. Or, to put it in another way, it should be at least an uncommon, with focus on being R.

But since the old iM@S runs entirely on Music trait, you can easily mix in different colours for a huge variety of compensations. That's what so fun about the IM series, its so versatile, you can build all kinds of funny decks in IM, and they can still somehow troll. XD

All the cards are here:
http://orenoturn.com/1075.html

I don't like the 1/0 +1500 power Yayoi. There is already a Yukiho card in Imas Dearly Stars which does the same thing and more.

Also don't like the 1/0 Miki. The metagame is now 1/1 7ks. If I don't have stock, I will take the 1/0 5.5k Hibiki for 500 less power.

Well at least red now has its 1/1 7k with a minor setback. Doubt I will put in the 2/2 9k verison in my Imas decks so the 1/1 7k will stay 1/1 7k.

Also like the clock encore 2/2 8.5k Miki and its strange that it isn't a TD exclusive considering Erza from Fairy Tail TD had the same ability and was a TD exclusive.

Rest of the cards I guess are ok.

Oh yea sadly this TD is weaker than others because its climax triggers are not change and it has no climax synergy. =/

Hmm there will be a official tournament for Imas 2 TD VS Bakemonogatari TD. Guess Imas 2 TD will dominate late gate due to higher power levels and the yayoi support pumps more than the Bakemonogatari TD.

Too bad the PR card given for that tourney is Bakemonogatari though. -_-"

I find iM@S2 TD a very technical deck, much like its predecessor, one which is definitely not recommended for beginners, but rather, its more for the slightly more experienced players who wish to ride the slightly more advanced learning curve. This TD focuses heavily on the late game, and unlike Bakemonogatari TD, it doesn't exactly produce cost-efficient constant power levels, but when used properly, can really take down anything a Bakemonogatari TD can possibility throw at it.

Yea, news was released quite a while ago. All I know for sure is the following series are inside (off my head):

Weiss Side:
Nanoha Strikers + 1st Movie + A's
To Aru Majutsu no Index / To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu
Angel Beats

Schwarz Side:
The iDOLM@STER + The iDOLMASTER Dearly Stars
Fate Stay Night + Fate Hollow Ataraxia
Milky Holmes
Marcross Frontier

They pretty much filtered down to beyond "popular series", considering that Da Capo, Persona, Shining Force EXA, and Little Busters are not shown to be inside so far. But I can't blame them on Da Capo, since the total number of cards probably exceeded 300 already.

The dev is Bandai Namco so yeah Idolmaster, Macross F is auto include unless they're stupid enough not to use their own stuff for the game.
Milky holmes is auto include too since it's owned by Bushiroad (WS card producer).

@shdwfalcon & zero :
From what i see, Imas TD will be more complicated to play.
Most of the power buffs are targeted which means you have plenty options to either stack it ot 1 char or distribute it.
Can be strong but have huge potential for misplays.

Milky holmes is auto include too since it's owned by Bushiroad (WS card producer).

@shdwfalcon & zero :
From what i see, Imas TD will be more complicated to play.
Most of the power buffs are targeted which means you have plenty options to either stack it ot 1 char or distribute it.
Can be strong but have huge potential for misplays.

And btw, there's a new PR card.
the pic (from orenoturn)

Well I got 3 of them already by getting friends to play in the tournament.

My hand was in pain due to the high 5s I did with the 0/0 3k Yayoi. Lol.

Anyway for those who want Idolm@ster single cards from the first series or the upcoming series, you can PM me. I can ship them overseas.

I can make the transactions official via ebay if needed.

Actually the Imas TD has more staying power at higher levels than Bakemonogatari.

It's support is +500 per level and with characters like the level 2 Miki, you won't need stock to encore them.

The chance of getting a TD sign is well 1/6 so buying 2 = 33% chance.

Post by: kozu on June 18, 2011, 12:44:43 pm
That may be true, but bakemono's ability to search(sisters, lv 3 hitagi, gate triggers) waiting room to replace their units easily can push each turn for soul damage. Miki's encore's ability is dangerous in the late game because both players will start to minimize their damage output, not to mention if it would really suck if you clocked a much needed climax. I really like the lv 0 stuff, (mami is great to start with)

IM@S2's Lv 1 game is very weak, simply because imas have to burn stock early game to match up to even with Yukiho support. BK Maniac is a great card as well, which also fuel's 0 haruka's amazing support ability. Not to mention it's extremely stock dependent (Haruka's change, Kotori's startup, etc). Lv 2 Yayoi is a really good support, but I've been able to get her out once, (Other times she either gets put in as clock damage or in my stock.) I understand that people may say it takes some more thought into the moves, but the trade-off for some effects just aren't worth it. 2 TDs combined will probably make it much better(for another set of yayois and harukas)

Just my 2 cent.

I noticed that they're coming out with a PSP game for Weiβ Schwarz in general and by who else, BNG.
Will the limited edition be coming out with any special idolm@ster cards? From what I can tell, no. However, I don't really know much about the game.

Oh I see. Thanks. Not really interesting to me though.
If anyone gets the game, tell me how it is. ;)

Edit 6/27/11: Ordering my im@s 2 trial deck today! Also getting Angel Beats+ Kud Wafter for my brother so we can play together. Can't wait for them to come.

Post by: zzZerozz on July 01, 2011, 03:48:54 pm
Uhm no, Ai is not a promo card. That card belongs to an Idolmaster Extra pack.
The cards they shown so far are just for demo purposes and are all released already.

I do have that card and a lot of others if any1 wants to buy. =P

Also Schwarz side iirc is mainly for those series that originated from games be it a RPG, eroge or etc.
Weiss is normally for those series with an anime.

Oh, and the first card of the day, "Elder Sister Yayoi" (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S14-002RR.jpg) has a somewhat interesting but costly "re-engerizing" ability.

Still hoping that there will be a kotori climax & sign cards.

@animagic : i have no idea haha. it's a blue card so it's probably something defensive like +1k on your opponent's turn or something.
but it's a bad card though considering a 0/0 vanilla is already at 3000 power.

@mindmaster : if you want the cards because of the pics only, i suggest u collect all the climax cards (the horizontal one).
it's cheap (ranging from 50-200yen) and the artwork is WS exclusive.
The problem is of course how to dig it out of japan.  :P

Think it says...

During your opponent's turn, if this card is in the center position on your stage, all your other characters gain +1000 Power.

So, expect Makoto to go down, but at least everyone else might beat somebody up. You might get a direct attack or two out of the deal or something.

Nice find~ Anymore?

I'm seeing more of the current power based meta rather than the old school style effects based in these cards so far. So gameplay-wise, looks like I'm currently disappointed.

Anyway, its weird to see one set to contain THREE 1/0 1500 power backup cards. Especially when two of them have only backup ability and have nothing else...

it's at your opponent's turn though so she'll get KOed while pumping the others which might deter your opponent from his/her second attack.
i much prefer her red suicider from the first expansion. Too bad that one has ugly artwork.

Sorry, there's some other pics but it's too grainy and too small.

There's more support cards revealed but the front liners until now is pretty strong imo.

Ami searching Mami, Iori supporting frog/Yayoi? They're trying to push yellow-green deck here.
And that RR lv3 Yayoi is pretty broken.
Theoretically speaking, she's invulnerable & can chain unlimited attacks as long as you have the stock to feed her.

Then dragon palace Azusa & Iori are almost certain PRs too.
It will be a douchebag move if they print the Azusa & Iori in the boosters and expect us to find these PR cards.

But this Ami is pretty good. Lets say the Iori is a measly 2/1/8500 vanilla. With 2 Ami at the back, she'll be at 12500 power without needing any activation.

The other two will probably be cropped from the same artwork as dragonpalace Ami.

i much prefer her red suicider from the first expansion. Too bad that one has ugly artwork.

Her old bomber will be very strong in a Miki orientated deck, due to her second ability and Miki having that new assist that can advance summon the level 2 Miki. No more worries about having to deal with encoring level 0 characters while you stuck him at level 0.

Ami searching Mami, Iori supporting frog/Yayoi? They're trying to push yellow-green deck here.
And that RR lv3 Yayoi is pretty broken.
Theoretically speaking, she's invulnerable & can chain unlimited attacks as long as you have the stock to feed her.

Its hard to say what they are aiming for now. But usually WS tries to mimic and "translate" the respective series' world into their form of card game, so there's usually some weird crossover abilities which you can only understand if you know the series well.

And that Lv3 Yayoi cannot attack unlimited times in one turn, as this ability is stated that it can be activated only once per turn. Invulnerability is highly dependent on your opponent's field and hand. You can, however, have six attacks in one turn. All you need is three of this Lv3 Yayoi on your front row, the corresponding climax card in your hand, and eleven stock.

= Climax Phrase =
- Play "Ohayou!!! Asa Gohan" into your climax slot.

= Attack Phrase =
- 1st Yayoi declares attack 1 [11 stock]
-- 1st Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [11(+1) stock]
- 2nd Yayoi declares attack 1, activate 1st Yayoi ability, stands 1st Yayoi [12(-5) stock]
-- 2nd Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [7(+1) stock / 2 attacks]
- 1st Yayoi declares attack 2, activate 2nd Yayoi ability, stands 2nd Yayoi [8(-5) stock]
-- 3rd Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [3(+1) stock]
- 3rd Yayoi declares attack 1 [4 stock]
-- 4th Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [4(+1) stock]
- 2nd Yayoi declares attack 2, activate 3rd Yayoi ability, stands 3rd Yayoi [5(-5) stock]
-- 5th Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [0(+1) stock]
- 3rd Yayoi declares attack 2 [1 stock]
-- 6th Trigger, counter, soul damage, battle damage [1(+1) stock]

There you go~ Six attacks of minimum three soul damage each (if you front every attack), with two stock at the end of your battle phrase. =)

Post by: lluzz on August 03, 2011, 06:14:15 pm
Yeah, i forgot there's the once per turn activation.
But the one you described is already cool. 6x attack will most likely bypass any 'last lucky climax'.

The invulnerability i'm saying is that she can be reversed and when her ability activates, you basically revived her, right?

BTW, is there any ruling about attacking a reversed character?
Can you still get reversed by a reversed character?
Do you get a +1 soul like when you're attacking an empty slot?

Yes, but only for after the first attack. If it gets reversed by the second attack, however, it won't get "revived" and will be sent to the waiting room during encore phrase as usual.

BTW, is there any ruling about attacking a reversed character?
Can you still get reversed by a reversed character?
Do you get a +1 soul like when you're attacking an empty slot?

Attacking a border containing a character will always be treated as attacking that character, regardless of whether that attacked character is in stand, rest, or reversed position.

So if you declare attack on a reversed character, and your character has a lower power than that reversed character during battle step, your character will get reversed.

And no, you don't get that one additional soul, because that border contains a character and is not empty. Even if you side a reversed character, you still have to subtract off that reversed character's level from your total soul damage.

Iori's Climax Combo is pretty cool. Pick a "Music" card from your clock and place it in any center stage and it gets +1000 till the end of your opponent's turn. (I hope my TL is accurate. Feel free to correct me.) With 6 stock and another Lv 3 in your clock you can refill your field easily while healing essentially 2 damage at the same time.

Too bad I don't like Iori. :X

Yes, my mistake, I didn't see it properly. Its a "draw one card choose one character +2000 power +1 soul" climax. Sorry! >.<

@lluzz:
Still, its decently strong. And yes, since quite a number of series ago, Bushiroad love stuffing Level 3 characters into the RR department. I'm already mentally prepared for three of the Level 3 characters to be RR and the last Level 3 character to be an R.

@kozu:
Yes, pretty much correct. Its in this wiki (http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:S14-027RR.jpg) now. It does, however, have to be in the front row to activate this effect. Pretty strong card, in my opinion.

By the way, anyone noticed that Iori's "Here we go!" is a CR, but the card number is 049? In a standard four colour booster, the last three cards for each colour range are climaxes, and there would be only one CR for each colour, which are numbers 023, 048, 073, and 098.

Iori's Climax Combo is pretty cool. Pick a "Music" card from your clock and place it in any center stage and it gets +1000 till the end of your opponent's turn. (I hope my TL is accurate. Feel free to correct me.) With 6 stock and another Lv 3 in your clock you can refill your field easily while healing essentially 2 damage at the same time.

Too bad I don't like Iori. :X

I like Iori and I like that...Do want.

Why? Iori looks much better in idolmaster 2.
She's still an insufferable brat though.   ;D

Larger portion for green since they have to cram 4 characters in there instead of 3 ?

Prolly. Either green colour ate one card slot from red, or green will have only two CX. Just wild guesses.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: lluzz on August 15, 2011, 08:36:32 am
Additional slot for green very probable since red slot have haruka & miki who already have many cards in imas 1.
Red lv3 should be Hibiki (haruka & miki already have theirs)
Blue lv3 either Takane or Makoto.  Takane is the more popular one imo.

More cards ... , and more expensive PRs. Don't really like most of the anime art.

The haruka card looks pretty interesting encore: it's relatively weak but she can be revived with 1 stock and tapping 2 <music> characters. assuming you have 2 back characters, she can pretty much pay for her own revive. It'll hold field presence without having to lose hand advantage, added to the fact that red decks generally ramp up power on its turn. That yukiho card is pretty amazing too. granting every other character on your field +1k power(just like that one tesstarosa card in the Nanoha set). With both of those cards you can easily have a self-sufficient lv.1 haruka at 6.5k on your turn!

but anyway,
A question to people who've made IM@S decks:

What is the meta regarding the series? Between the first set and dearly stars, can they match competitively to top tier decks (like haruhi or railgun) if play correctly? I was thinking on get some IM@S2 boosters once they come out soon, and was hoping which color and if there are anything good I could use from the previous sets.


Also, I want dat redcheerleader PR card  8)
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: lluzz on August 15, 2011, 03:39:01 pm
That yukiho is nice but i just wish the climax ability can do more than that.
Only reveal top deck and put it back? Should be reveal and you may put it back or into clock/stock/waiting room/bottom of deck whichever is the most balanced one.

From what i know the cheerleader card is a comiket c80 promo.
They're selling it for around 500 yen each at yahoo auctions and as usual the only problem is how to dig it out of japan.  ;D

Can't help you with deck suggestions. Here people play WS for fun only, no cutthroat decks since there's no tourney around here.

Meh. Don't like Takane too much. Same soul and cost as a similar Miki card.
The special ability is better though.

You said it.  :'( The only WS cards I have right now are the im@s trial deck. Gotta buy these boosters to improve my deck construction.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Shdwfalcon on August 16, 2011, 03:48:06 pm
That Yukiho's climax ability reveals both your and your opponent's top card. Don't forget. Its not anywhere that strong, but it's still decent. I'm still waiting for the release of im@s2 to really decide the usefulness of the cards.

And that Haruka (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S14-060U.jpg) with that new encore cost type? Its a waste it won't get the boost, but I would personally prefer having two copies of a certain Haruka (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-060U.jpg) assist in my back row. XD

Meta-wise, Haruhi and Railgun is, I have to admit, the two current strongest series.

Even till now, my opinion remains unchanged. iM@S is unable to fight even toe-to-toe with the newer series. The main focus seems to be huge tanking Lv1 characters, then advance/special summoning Lv3 characters at level 2. iM@S's greatest specialisation is advanced/special summoning, and unlike many other series, iM@S doesn't have really high power, strong field sustenance, or character shooting (send opponent characters to stock / bottom library / top deck, etc).

I don't live in Japan, but locally, I can tell that the more favored iM@S deck builds revolves around either of two cards:
気まぐれな 美希 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-037U.jpg)
歌の女神 千早 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-082R.jpg)

Also, Ai (Dearly Stars) decks remained common.

Its hard to decide which colour will turn out to be better as of now. If I were to say what kind of deck will benefit most from the older cards now, I can only say a Miki-themed deck. FOR NOW.

@animagic :
I'm only collecting now. WS is dying here & being replaced by vanguard. Even the stores already stopped stocking WS for some time now which is why i havent even bought imas 2 TD.  :-[
In the end price matters i guess since vanguard is cheaper.

@shdwfalcon :
Yes i know that both player reveal cards but wouldn't it be better if you can somehow do something with it instead return it back? I dont know, at least give an option of put it back or put it at the bottom of deck. It's only a slight advantage since both of you will be doing it.

If it's about old cards that can be useful for imas 2 decks, :
Yellow is the worst. it stands and support itself but not much use outside the first expansion. Xtra pack yellow is negligible.
Green is probably the best. Lots of good cards in 1st & xtra packs.
Red also have lots of good cards but the xtra packs (Ai cards & Ai related cards) are alot like yellow, supports itself but have minimal use outside.
Blue, i dont play much blue. All i know is that lv3 chihaya is good  ;D. The xtra pack blue is very weak.

It's all my own opinion, take it with a grain of salt since as i said i never play any tourney.  ;D

I like the style of WS and since it has a lot of my favorite titles I will be sticking with it.
Don't know whether or not to buy the im@s booster box or buy individual boosters. All I know is that I must have 'em!

@lluzz
Frankly speaking, I rather not allow the shifting of the revealed cards. If players can shift the revealed cards, in my opinion, the advantage will tilt towards the opponent. The actual ability balanced it out fine, you still have some kind of, if only slight, advantage, while not giving any chances to your opponent to try and shift the favor towards him.

@kozu
I would wish for that to happen. lol It would be fun to rampage and own with a boyband-themed deck. An excellent way to troll.

Anyone interested in posting decklists? I'm interested in what kind of decks are being built, and frankly speaking, it might inspire me with more new ideas for quirky decks.

What my brother does is get a lot of support characters in his deck. He also focuses on using special abilities like side attacking without the soul penalty (I don't know if im@s has this yet) and one card which allows him to take his most powerful card out of his waiting room at the cost of him putting a card to memory and having the card rested.

I want to make a "girl with hair ribbons deck" using haruhi, im@s, and angel beats. XD

@shdwfalcon :
no, i mean you're the one to decide. Either both of you put it back or both of you put it to the bottom of the deck.
So if it's good card for the opponent, you can choose both players put it at the bottom. An advantage for you.
Imo, it should be like that since having a climax activated ability is hard enough. Most newer series already have many good abilities without needing climax.

@animagic4u:
Side attacking without soul penalty only exists in a few series, and you have to play one stock when you declare attack. I can only remember Kud Wafter's Lv2 having that ability offhand. iM@S series doesn't have it.
About that "one card which allows him to take his most powerful card out of his waiting room at the cost of him putting a card to memory and having the card rested" description, don't get you, sorry. I can only guess its either a Change ability at start of encore phrase (Koko from D.C. is strong~), or the Little Buster's ear-digging event.
That theme of yours can be done, Yuri does the picking up at Lv1, and Haruhi's Lv3 for the finisher.

@lluzz:
Moving one card down to the bottom for the opponent is definitely good for him, the only time its not good for him is when his climax card is revealed instead. Simple. lol They might choose the "when it comes into play from your hand" approach, but then its gonna be a one-timer effect.
And a full red-yellow Ai deck? Interesting. Does it face stock or hand problems?

==========

animagic4u, I don't know what's the availability of the cards over at your side, but here's a roughly workable decklist. =X

"girl with hair ribbons deck"

Lv0
4x AB/W11-051 RR 戦略的な挑発 ゆり (http://orenoturn.com/goods_image/A17475_Z1.jpg)

Its very open to alternate options, IM/SE04-21 C みんなのアイドル やよい (http://orenoturn.com/goods_image/A13298_Z1.jpg) is an alternative if you can't handle that Haruhi Lv1, for example.

@shdwfalcon :
That's just 1 suggestion. It could be both of you put it back or both of you put it to hand/clock/waiting room/bottom of deck, 1x activation per climax.  ;D
Anything instead of just put it back is fine.

Your deck, how to play it? i see many colors & 1 cards.  ;D

My Ai deck's problem is not so great lv0 & nonexistant lv1. No stocks & hand problems here.
'I Want' is there for the free stocks it give & http://www.project-imas.com/w/File:SE04-16R.jpg is very good since she basically replaces herself or fetching a bigger level Ai to your hand when she's downed.

I play it like usual but when i reach lv1, i'll try to rush myself to lv2 while fetching lv2 Ai.
Lv2 Yukiho is there as backup huge beater. 2/2/10k at your turn & it's a common card.

@lluzz:

Sadly, nowadays, 2/2 10k is still considered small and easily countered or walled. For players like me using a lower power deck, we were forced to find alternatives to either counter or minimize the power fight. Hence the comeabout of "I WANT ALIVE!".

And speaking of this deck, it only looks misleading. Its actually a red-blue deck.

I have six backups, two 1/0 1.5k, two 1/1 2k, and two 2/1 3k. They are the following cards:
1x IM/SE04-02 C やさしい先輩 雪歩 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:SE04-02C.jpg)
1x IM/S14-103 TD ユニットメンバー やよい (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S14-103TD.jpg)
1x IM/S07-065 C 王子様 真 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-065C.jpg)
1x IM/S07-077 RR 秋月 律子 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-077RR.jpg)
2x IM/S07-043 C 正義の味方 響 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S07-043C.jpg)

See? Almost one fifth of the list gone. LOLz

That IM/SE04-01 C 0(≧◇≦)人(≧◇≦)0 亜美&真美 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:SE04-01C.jpg) is for concentration ability, either for library/stock burning or soul rushing, anything works. The two IM/S14-101 TD ユニットメンバー 雪歩 (http://project-imas.com/w/File:S14-101TD.jpg) is for universal well-timed one turn power + level boost, works at any time, any level, comes in handy many times.

That left all the red and blue cards. Should be straightforward enough to figure out. =X

I made that deck when iM@S2 TD was released. Sadly, it didn't last long, because I modded it to troll people. There was anticipation of iM@S2, and I started to see new faces using iM@S cards, so I simply can't resist. All I did was to swap five cards... See the difference (http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae250/Shdwfalcon/Weiss%20Schwarz/The%20Idolmaster/201108191151.jpg)? XD

(http://i976.photobucket.com/albums/ae250/Shdwfalcon/Weiss%20Schwarz/The%20Idolmaster/201108191151.jpg)

I think the booster will be out anytime though, most of the cards i care about has already been spoiled.
Lots of pics.

The packs.

The signs!!! I think the old ones have more exclusive feel to it. And still no Kotori signs.  :-[
Aside from Ritsuko, it looks like the ryugu komachi signs are just green doodles. The others are foils.

Yep the cards are released. As soon as i posted those above, ppl in YAJ start auctioning em.

The signs are colored (not just ryugu komachi ones).
So the red girls (haruka, hibiki & miki) have red foils for the signs, the blue girls use blue foils etc etc.
The pics are from YAJ, too lazy to save em to photobucket. ;D

Nice idea but imo, looks weird. Should stick to gold/silver foils.

lv3 blue is R Makoto

B Team: Makoto, Chihaya, Takane
C Team: Yukiho, Mami, Yayoi

@kozu :
in imas 1 they're following the color & member of the SP games with green getting the 'enemy' characters.

in imas 2 it's the Master Artist 2 unit placement with the same theme. Yellow gets the unit with more childish characters, red middle, blue mature & again green gets the unplayable characters.

Anyway for those who want single cards, I can get any cards including signs at orenoturn pricing and ship them overseas via ebay transactions.

My friend bought 7 boxes, I am shipping over 2 for myself and basically I know a lot of people who whacked boxes.

If you want any cards you can PM me a list but may need to wait 2 weeks for my cards to arrive first.

I actually don't like the interface to Lackey, and I know for a fact it doesn't like Japanese text (don't think there are any plans for putting Unicode in it either). Although, I guess to play with people, it would be better to have things in plain English. It makes me wonder what a more intuitive interface would look like.

Well, if I feel like it, I suppose I could do something about that, but it would take work on my part. I've got my plate full with a lot of things too, and when you get down to it, I may prefer just slapping down triple digits to have most of it done for me (in the form of a PSP game). ^^

It's mostly aesthetic differences; The game has different printed packaging, LE content and so based on the version.
Supposedly the actual game differs in that Weiß has a higher chance to obtain Weiß cards and Schwarz having a higher chance to obtain Schwarz cards.

Ok the slowest shipping will take 1-2 weeks.
$1.10 (SGD) for the first 20grams.
$0.35 (SGD) for the next 10grams.
$2.50 (SGD) if you want it registered with a tracking number.

1 USD = 1.2SGD

I follow orenoturn prices for rares but for commons and uncommons, it is about 80cents and 1.25cents. (SGD)

I wanted to make a "iDOLM@STER XENOGLOSSIA" deck by combining Evangelion and iDOLM@STER (to be honest I love nearly every anime in WS so it's hard to decide ;~;)
I'm wondering how it would work out.

There would be no synergy for the pilot and music traits. Then your events which affect music cannot affect pilot and then it would not work at its best.

You can mix it with music cards from Da Capo or Macross Frontier since Imas theme is heavily dependant on music.

Then you can try the twins trait or the snacks trait.
Haruka giving encore to all snacks can work in a snack deck and the Kagami support from Lucky Star can pump up the twins deck.

Extra packs are normally 20+ to 45+ cards and you get 2 foils per booster pack.

But do note the packs are more expensive than a normal booster.

Great, more money to be spent. Lol.

The packs have 6 cards instead of 8, and 6 packs per box (!) instead of 20. Not to mention they only have one print run, so when they run out, too bad. I missed Dearly Stars, and it's very difficult to source singles, let alone sealed packs.

So I'm hoping I could get some feedback on this current experimental build on my haruka deck. I originally played this mono red for almost 3 months, but I found it fell off late game pretty bad. After I splashed in some yellow yukihos for better early game, but it still lacks in power late game. I'm hoping the chihayas can help with the relative weak power they have in general. With 4 bk's and 4 hibiki's, 2 gate triggers, and a kotori, i usually have no idea getting the cards I need. Any suggestions? Hopefully nothing too radical because I'd like to keep the synergy I have between my harukas. :<

I would have brought a real set of card, but really there noone to play with... So i brought the psp game.

Hmm I play a red blue Imas deck.

Its very stable that I don't have to clock at lvl 1 or 2 due to handoversize most of them.

My list:
http://orenoturn.com/1075_23128.html x3 (any lvl 0 will do)
http://orenoturn.com/584_5014.html x4 boosts your hand size a lot with climax combo.
http://orenoturn.com/584_5016.html x3 lvl 1 encore and gets 1k if
http://orenoturn.com/584_5033.html x3 is on field
http://orenoturn.com/584_5037.html x3 big change at lvl 2
http://orenoturn.com/688_13302.html x4 (any gate climax will do coz i just want the trigger and no synergy)

I won't use the 2/1 8k rr haruka coz she is small in terms of soul dmg and power. Also needs a climax combo to work which increase the luck factor. Without climax combo, she is a very small lvl 2 with 1 soul dmg.

Also your deck lacks staying power.

2/2 9k vanilla isn't very big and doesn't have encore like the 2/2 9.5k Chihaya.

Your support is also quite small. Its just 500 and maybe an additional 500.

You need 2/1 level support to keep your level 3s alive.

Hibiki is the smallest lvl 3 healer due to having 500 less power and can't do anything if BK manic is not there.

Chihaya is better coz she can change out at level 2.

My 2 cents.

While I would like to try out some of those suggetions, I simply don't have the budget nor resource to obtain the cards. Getting them here in the states are next to impossible. However, I have changed my deck some more since the last post. I've taken out Yukiho in exchange for Chihaya 3/0 3500 to keep some consistency in my level/clock. I've already splashed in the Lv.3 Heal Counter and it's worked wonderfully. Harukas normally doesn't have a problem sticking around thanks to 「前のめりに元気! 春香」, but I do agree that Hibiki is heavily dependent on BK. Now I know I'm missing 2 more 1/0 Haruka's but she is simply much too hard to come by for me. As for the 2/1 Haruka, I like her exactly for the reason she is a 1 soul Lv 2, I can still maintain a decent wall at lv 2-3 The support Chihayas were more or less a test, but I did consider the 9.5k Chihaya, but felt it didn't fit well with the deck theme. I'll give them a whirl and hope for the better. At the moment, I'll change my climax ratio to 3 gates and 3 i want 2 go my ways each and see if that works better.

Thanks for the suggetions!

I still don't think the Lvl 2 Haruka is a wall.
A wall would be the 2/2 9.5k Chihaya and she doesn't need the sweets trait to have encore.

At level 2 you can play http://orenoturn.com/586_5095.html to change to level 3 Chihaya or if you insist on Haruka then use this level 2 http://orenoturn.com/585_5065.html

These 2 give you a better level 3 wall at level 2.

Anyway if you missing singles I might have some and I ship overseas.

My suggestions are based on what you mentioned you had with one booster. If you want vastly improve it, you may want to try something more specialized.

I would take out the Pink Diamond Yayois and replace them with Ryuugu Komachi Leader Iori IM/S14-028 R. It grants a universal buff to all music traits, and also can be used to pump yayoi's an extra +500 for a turn. I personally think pink diamond hibiki is a weak card because at most she can only become a 2/2 9k, even with encore i felt she had no sustainability by late game. (bakemono hitagi has a similar effect except she can reach 9.5k). I don't like "do-dai" in this deck. I would swap them out with "shiny smiles" you got from your booster. Another card I highly recommend you to run is LUCKY RABBIT, which is one of the best events that imas2 has imo. (if you play YGO, it's basically a pot of duality!)

There's probably a lot more options that'll make it better, but just experiment and see what works!

Thanks for the tip. For now i need the yayoi pink diamond for Mami pink diamond to keep in power. I do however got one of Iori, leader of RK, i'll find another card to replace for it, either the takane card (Which i think is good how it is), or one of the 0/0 vanilla cards. Now you mention that on Hibiki pink diamond, i guess it true, while ti does ahve ht same soul damage as haruka pink diamond, i guess it cant sustain as you need all the cards slot there. Guess i'll just add a 4th Haruka. I'll try otu switching out those climax card, i played the community today and i found out i never get the attack power or the hand to do anything late game.

My plans was to change my deck from Yellow/Red  to

Red/Blue
Red/Green

I like how my red cards are working atm as it keeps me relatively stable at the later part of the game.
Blue i have no plans for it, but i wanna do it just for this card. IM/S14-097 - Battle Jupitier. It cost 1 stock, heals, gives 2000 power and it a counter, it sounds godlike.
Green i have plans for is completely dependant on Dotop TV, as i need to get at least 2 in my memory for it full effect in the deck. i only have 1 of the event card so it wasn't viable at time of deck building.

Green cards i planned on was
Dotop tv x4 - have 1
Iori, First rival - requires 2 dotop tv  - have 2 - would become a 2/2 with 10k power
Azusa, Singing of Love - requires 1 dotop tv - have 2 - becomes a 2/1 with 9k power
Jupiter, Assassins from 961 Production - just because my local loves to salvage, alot, i realize that after playing alot of games
Ami, Futami Sister's Cutie - need 1 dotop - have 4 - just because? Iori leader is better though, as this is front center only
Kotori-san, Encore! - need 2 event(dotop) - have 0 >.< - becomes a 2/2 with 9k power with encore effect.

Just an idea im having, i plan to buy 2 more boxes and hope i get the green cards (aka dotop tv, just 2 more is enough for me) as i want to run a red/green.

Unless there is a way for the opponent to remove cards from memory to somewhere else.

I don't believe this was mentioned before, but Weiss Schwarz has official American distributors (forgot to mention this a couple months ago, but it's still relevant), so purchasing boxes should be much easier.

An example: http://www.hammergirlanime.com/ (http://www.hammergirlanime.com/)

Yugioh is more dominate here, it more local so i suppose that ok. Vanguard and WS is about half/half between each other, since most vanguard/WS players plays both.

On the side note, i got 2 more boxes, i only got 1 more dotop TV Event card. >.<

So now running a barely runable Yellow/Green(Dominate) (2 Dotop) and a more stable but power lacking Red/Blue(Dominate) deck. and funny part is, they both share the same 5 cards.

FYI, the release date of Idolmaster Anime Weiss Schwarz TCG.

There are 80 different cards, you get 1 random reprint card of the old extra pack - Deary Stars per booster bought. The random reprint is nonfoil.

If it is 80 different cards I guess you will need a lot of boxes to get a playset of everything. Maybe 6?

There are 36 reprint cards from the old Extra Pack - Deary Stars.

The reprinted cards can be found here:

Post by: Julio on July 29, 2012, 06:59:32 am
I want to get it very soon, but before that I want to know more about these decks:

1. Is each deck exactly the same or randomly pick cards?

2. Is it possible to play with one deck of cards?

3. Is there any place to learn how to play or is the instructions in english?

4. Are the cards high quality?

Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: TheTanStar on July 29, 2012, 07:40:59 am
1. Each deck is fixed. However, there is a 1/6 chance for a signed card in the deck replacing the same card.
2. Two decks are required to play the game properly.
3. The Official English distributor has great english resources: http://www.heartofthecards.com/ws/ (http://www.heartofthecards.com/ws/). They even have printable card translations.
4. Based on the WS cards I own, they are printed on thick card stock (ie. better than standard playing cards). I'd argue that they are slightly better than MTG cards (I play a lot of MTG in my spare time) in quality, however, they are more expensive.

I would like to note that there are even three English deck releases that I know of: Madoka, Fate/Zero, and Disgaea. The Madoka and Fate/Zero decks come with promo cards if you order here: hammergirlanime.com (http://hammergirlanime.com)

Every booster pack contain 8 cards, 1 of those card is a Rare card, 1 is a climax card, 2 is Uncommon, 4 is Common.

Every booster box contents 20 packs.

Every Carton contains 16 boxes.

If you end up getting some rare things in there (which I think you're guaranteed to) you might end up good.
Also if you get those tickets so you can get the prizes.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Julio on August 07, 2012, 09:15:03 pm
That would mean that I have to open the packs to see what I got then. I would like to sell them as packs, but some of those rare cards can be worth more than a single pack. So how would I do this then? Open some packs to sell individual cards, sell some packs, and keep the rest?

The only thing you can feel out of a box is the foil or sign. The rest is up to luck.

And unless you got experience in opening foils from a pack, then its up to luck again.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: TheTanStar on August 08, 2012, 08:18:56 am
That reminds me of YuGiOh. Never buy loose boosters off the internet. They're guaranteed to not hold anything valuable since they are scaled (Good cards are foiled, and therefore weigh more). Similar methods are around for nearly any TCG/CCG (even MTG, which I play a lot).

That being said, always buy sealed boxes off the internet. Only buy loose boosters from reputable physical retailers (who have more to lose performing the practice).
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Julio on August 08, 2012, 07:48:04 pm
Wow, so the rare cards are in foils? So basically I have to get a very sensitive scale to weigh them and figure out which one has them?
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: TheTanStar on August 08, 2012, 09:02:26 pm
Yes, YuGiOh cards are like that. It isn't such a useful method nowadays since there are rarities that are less detectable to scales (ie. they are a very similar weight to average cards). In WS, SPs are also foiled, and I have reason to believe they are also heavier. However, it isn't a very ethical practice. I don't condone doing so in any case.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Julio on August 08, 2012, 10:36:15 pm
I wouldn't really do that though. Right now I should focus on getting a second deck so I can play with my friends.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: animagic4u on August 09, 2012, 01:57:11 am
Maybe you could just keep all your boosters and build decks?
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: Julio on August 09, 2012, 02:56:13 am
I'll probably end up doing that, I just hope they don't get sold out by the time I'm ready to buy a box.

How many booster packs would I need to build a deck anyway?

Post by: JNiles on August 09, 2012, 02:59:25 am
All this talk of buying boxes makes me jittery.  I had to give up card games- too expensive, most card games are horribly unbalanced, and I'm a sore loser anyways.  :P

I would imagine the market for reselling these is not very big.

That depends on several factors.
What you get in the boosters, how you would like to build your deck, if you get enough of certain cards.

I'm going to get 6 booster packs from the Madoka anime at hammergirlanime sometime next month since I don't want to over pay for shipping.
Title: Re: THE iDOLM@STER TCG (Weiβ Schwarz)
Post by: zzZerozz on August 13, 2012, 07:51:54 am
In this case, there is only one foil (if you are unlucky) or signed (if you are lucky) per box.

The market isn't too bad if you know the right places to sell them. Not as speculator like MTG but at least there won't be much price wars.

And you can make a deck of mainly commons and uncommons. Since this booster consists of only 80 cards, I was able to get 5-6 of each common card easily in 2 booster boxes.

The store clerk said that it's the only thing they have so far, and if they sell enough he'll order more from other series. So I bought one for support. I don't really like Fate Zero, but at least the rules are in English. I didn't get a signed one though :(

Post by: TheTanStar on August 16, 2012, 08:51:31 pm
Just like how any game has broken cards. They slip under the radar due to being underplayed/changed at the last minute/designed before really knowing how to balance cards. To borrow from MTG, some great examples are Tarmogoyf (http://magiccards.info/query?q=Tarmogoyf) (Changed from 1GG to 1G at the last minute, making it incredibly undercosted and playable, especially in blue decks that played green for this one card), Umezawa's Jitte (http://magiccards.info/bok/en/163.html) (Which again, is undercosted for what it does and turns the game around unless your opponent can deal with it), and Skullclamp (http://magiccards.info/query?q=Skullclamp) (Due to a last second "nerf", going from +1/+1 to +1/-1, allowing you to kill any x/1 creature you controlled for 1 mana and draw two cards!).

Dunno if this is common knowledge or not, but apparently some Weib Schwarz decks have been released for the English market.  I saw decks for Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero at a local con.  We'll see if it catches on here or not.  Same dealer claimed they saw a preorder notice for Idolmaster anime, though I'm not yet convinced.

So, is the game balanced?  Which card game does it most closely resemble?  I may need to make a spot purchasing decision.

Post by: Cael K. on September 30, 2012, 05:27:38 am
Wait, there's an American dealer with them? I'm interested to know who.

Can't actually answer your question though, so I'll just say what stands out to me. Keep in mind, this really boils down to first impressions, I haven't really played it much.

Generally speaking, I find the game about as volatile as Marvel vs. Capcom or a game of Koi-Koi, mainly because of the ever-present chance of an attack's damage being nullified. It seems like everything else in the game feeds off this either directly, or indirectly. Without getting into much detail, I'll say that there's a huge luck factor involved, and because of this, the game gives you a lot of information (what you won't draw, what your opponent has in his deck but can't use until many turns out, both players' chances of damage cancel) and heaps of card draw in the hopes of bringing the luck factor back down and make it controllable at the same time. Luck manipulation is a part of the game, at high levels I imagine there's a lot of card counting going on as well.

If you make the right decisions, the numbers will like you, but in the end they're still numbers. Some people like the unpredictable nature of the game, others are turned off.

As far as if it's balanced... is any card game ever truly balanced?

It's a small local dealer, so I imagine a lot of other shops have access to the decks.

No, no card game is ever balanced, but some put more effort into balancing than others.  Magic is still alive through judicious use of pruning, right?

I suppose I should be more specific about what I don't like, based on experience.
1) Being able to speed through your entire deck without consequences, thus building up an enormous card advantage.
2) Easy win mechanics that run counter to the game's core concepts, like how those old Pokemon haymaker decks made evolution look bad by comparison.

I suppose I might as well bite the bullet and buy a deck.  I guess I'll go with Fate/Zero.  I hate how both properties have been touched by Gen Urobuchi though.
