Triumphant Return Scion

Summary: Here is the stat of the new Scion.

Race – Noble
Affiilation – Biolith Castle

9/6/8/2

– Triumphant Return Scion can only be summoned if 2 or more Biolith creatures are on the board.
– Magic Attack all enemy creatures.
– While Triumphant Return Scion is on a biolith field,  during your opponent’s Resolution Phase, choose another creature with Summoning Cost less than or equal to the number of biolith fields. Return that creature to its owner’s hand.
– Treat all empty fields also as a biolith field.

(A) All enemy (C) None (B) S

Comment: Zolda analogous of biolith, but the additional ability of treating empty fields as Biolith field make this creature more useful in early in the game?  Well, the restriction of 2 biolith on the board makes “No” for this.  So ideally, wipe the board with Biolith God.  OR alternatively can use with the classic combo of Blinding Sky i.e. Calamity.

    Seems very situational to me. 9SC? I wonder what the other phantoms will cost…

    Wow.
    Wasn’t expecting it to be so expensive.
    But…
    Now then, this Zolda bit…
    If blank fields = biolith does that mean if there’s 2 blank fields and the middle bio field (for example) then you can return a 3 cost creature to the opponent’s hand or a 1 cost (actual biolith fields…?)
    Worth testing.
    It’s the ultimate Zolda card…
    Better than Scion Bio Lord? Nope. A good alternative? Absolutely.
    I reckon it would be used in a different kind of deck than waht Scion Lord would be used in…
    This is ‘God’ proportions…
    A fab card…
    Game changing…
    Can’t wait for Clare Will!
    Don’t suppose it’s incarnation purchance?
    Either way, imagine getting this one out with ascension?
    A guard, a bomber and turning a 1 summon cost into this…
    Amazing!
    Thanks Hous!

  3. i dont see the hype over this … 9 SC … meh its only useful if someone can ascension this out .. even then its a waste … if the other phantoms cost this much then they will be the worst phantoms eoj ever had … apophis was right again … overcosting useless cards …

    @ Roarl-L

    Hold yer horses…
    How many times do you see biolith temple / spire of juno / a god card?
    Quite a lot in my experience… I like to have one for lapse amongst other things…
    What I really like about this (and this will go for all of them if they are all this expense, usually bio’s are more than others..) is that they’re not as restrictive as gods… i.e. very field dependent, this one gives a nasty kick and could wipe the board clean after just a few turns and healing showers (or a dodge or two)…
    Zolda was REALLY weak HP-wise and graveyard dependent… this is much much better!
    It’s more of ‘once every few games’ card than regular nobles, which you can get out pretty much every game…
    What this gives is variety in the ‘danger’ factor, when you’re playing bioliths you’re thinking ‘okay, we’re going to see phaseus at some point or battleship, etc.’ you’ve got to be prepared for this card or it’ll cost you the game!
    9 Cost? okay, to be fair, maybe 8…
    But remember you have lots of new ways to generate a lot more mana now, especially with the new rituals…

  5. pretty good, especially because it attacks all enemys not only one element or race. kinda expensive, but a white cubic or biolith ascension should do the trick 😀

    Since this is a Scion, wonder if it works with WatchTower (When an allied Scion is on the board).

    The return to hand (generates no exit mana) should allow you to bump a few creatures back and this should live a couple of turns at least with 8hp. Most likely to be ascentioned over hard cast but once it’s out it can be a brutal card. Would go well in a deck with BS as all empty fields are counted as lith so it would increase the damage of BS.

    I also hope the other phatoms are not this costly (6 mana nobles were expensive enough :p) , but this guy is a serious threat and worth the mana/ascention IMO as he hits everything, returns cards and has a high HP stack. Could have been an 8 cost card though 😉

    Just unlocked the Fire Noble Phantom in the game and his powers are incredible!

    He only costs 6 mana too… he’s called Carlo the Scorched 🙂

    Ooo Clare Wil the Valiant is the water one 🙂

    Thanks Matthew. Earth (with 6hp vs 4hp, and -2hp for liths on non lith fields) seems to be the strongest of the 3 prime element phantoms you have posted.

    @Matthew

    Awesome. Don’t tell me that you’ve already got all those 5 phantoms… I don’t even have my booster box here yet…

    Anyways thanks for the stats. I’ll make a new thread for each as well as a thread that was suggested by Fongy.

    @ Houhasen
    I wish! 😉
    Nope, I just beat the new theme decks in goal mode in order to unlock all cards then viewed the cards that way 🙂
    Nice to give something back to you for a change after all the great translation stuff you’ve been doing.
