Farewell Didi? Welcome Fire Phantom?

fireemblem.gifSummary: I feel like I should make this as my full time job except I can’t make any living from this… EOJ Connection had massive updated of site today with numerous new cards from Set.2 including PHANTOMs. So here is the world first English translated phantom from Set.2!!

Flame Wizard (R)

Race: Human
Affiliation: Church of Parmus
Summon/Activation – 5/4
HP/Attack – 3/2

– Flame Wizard’s Magic Attack targets all enemies of the same race as the target.
– Subtract 1 from the *Summoning Cost of other allied Church of Parmus creatures. (Minimum of 1)

Comment: Attack is based on the race. Ability is based on the Affiliation. Another classic Set.2 card reinforcing the main theme of race/affiliation based combo. It appears a bit expensive in the Set.1 standard, but again with Set.2 I strongly believe the mana limited gameplay will change with well constructed decks.

*I have just realized the fact that in the US version of the card that has ability to subtract mana cost specifically states Summoning cost (like in Admiral Belta); however, in the Japanese text it says mana cost and have parenthesis stating “include newly summoning creatures.” If I were to read only Japanese description it sounds more like both summoning as well as reactivation cost are affected by this ability. So I am a bit confused. Anways, since the text in this creature is the same as that of Admiral Belta, I used Summoning Cost; however, the literal translation should be mana cost. (Perhaps, early error in the card description?)

The Socerer, Freedonia (Phantom UR)

Race: Hero
Affiliation: None

Summon/Activation – 5/4
HP/Attack – 5/2+

– The Sorcerer, Freedonia magic attack targets all enemies of the same element. When biolith creature is included as a target, this creature attack will be + X, where X is the number of mana this creature’s owner has.
– All allied adjacent creatures will gain “return” ability.

Comment: Again, the gameplay may change significantly in the Set.2 and therefore mana efficiency might not be a main focus, but at present time I feel like Didi (Set.1 Hero) is better choice than Freedonia.

Oh by the way, another of my prediction came true. I said most likely the phantoms in the Set.2 will be Hero.

    Subtract 1 what? 😀

    Freedonia looks insane o.o Time will tell what happens! Though giving your creatures Return… wow.

    Not only it does look like it could be a full time job for you, but on top of that, we would need 2 or 3 more guys like you… Many new spells as well, and those ones are probably pretty hard to translate.

    Thank you for the great job you’re doing for the EoJ community

    They’ve strayed from the path of the hero of each element helping their own element in some way, why Biolith? atleast make it Water or something, this card disappointed me to say the least 😦

    I guess the other Hero/Phantoms of set 2 will have the same lith hating effect.
