Siam’s Sentinel ~ Orientation Matters ~

Summary: This is what Sony is talking about when they say “formation.”

Comment: One unique aspect of EOJ is the orientation of the card.  Previously, it was only important in terms of attack/counter attack direction; however, this card shows new a potential/use of the orientation.  I believe this is what sony was referring as “Formation” strategy.

    Pre-orders are leaving the 13th floor on Friday, I should be getting my boxes on Saturday 🙂

    Just got to hope for the PSN update on Thursday to go along with it.

    This is a funny card. It’s countered pretty well against any deck that has Fogs or other critter turners, but against unprepared decks, this is pretty cheap. Play a couple of low cost/high health dudes facing the same direction then play this on turn 4. Again, pretty bad against fogs or efficient attackers like Siam or Didi, but I like it just because it would seriously piss people off if they were to lose to this. Regardless though, this is a great way to try to win the game by saving the creature your opponent was softening up and banking on killing to get out of check.

    Or actually, wait…never mind, this card is utterly AMAZING. “all allied creatures with the same orientation as Siam’s Sentinal gain Perfect Dodge”. Siam’s Sentinal is ALWAYS in the same orientation as Siam’s Sentinal. So it always has Perfect Dodge! Right? Or no?

    @Paydak,

    I would interpret the same way, but for some reason I doubt it’s true because there is no other self perfect dodge possessing creature with so much baseline health especially with no field restriction. But if I am right, then this card is already misprinted based on how they have been wording everything else.

    I don’t think it will get perfect dodge itself. OK, normally they would have to put “…all OTHER allied…” but seeing that it has always the same orientation as itself the card would probably just have “perfect dodge” on it if it benefits from its own features.

  10. i dont think it will give itself perfect dodge, but this is still very good, especially if you compare it to the okunada temple from set2…
