Star-Blasting Light is a 4-star level event card with a hefty price and potentially brutal effect. When activated, all trap cards will be removed the board, including those spawned by thefield event, and players will take 1 damage for each trap currently on the board that they placed. (The card will show a "Miss" if no traps are destroyed.)
Strategic Info[edit | edit source]
Star-Blasting Light is an extremely powerful, but little used, event card that wipes all trap cards from the board. As one might expect, this can be particularly useful on boards where the amount of traps has become so saturated that it’s almost impossible to navigate without triggering one. At its extremely high star price for usage, the card has limited practical application, however, its price can be eased withor commonly triggered with . Star-Blasting Light's main use is as perhaps the strongest counter card against , , , , and even , as the card acts as a direct counter to their hyper cards. With these characters spawning numerous traps with one card and likely using more than one over the course of the game, the card is almost always lethal and removes the opponent's main source of strength, their traps, from the board. The card does have more general purposes, however, as the player can also use the card to either damage multiple characters at once if many players are using traps or the card can be used to remove a certain trap off the board such as trap on the players panel, especially Saki's . As a result of both these uses, Star-Blasting Light is a decent option for tank characters like and who need ways to defend their health supply against any type of damage.
The main problem surrounding Star-Blasting Light is the fact that the card is relatively niche. Besides taking out a few specific characters that are trap heavy, the card is rarely needed. Further, as aforementioned, the card is difficult to play, given its massive star price and level requirement greatly limiting its use, similar to. The last issue the player needs to be aware of is that Star-Blasting Light is an event, and like most event cards, affects all players including the player who activated the card. This means that although characters like can bring the card, it would be tactical suicide to do so, as another player can use it against her and it will destroy her own traps if she uses it.
Extra Note[edit | edit source]
- While implied by the above, it should be noted that the bombs placed by count as normal traps cards, although they don't appear as such. The player will not be able to see their removal as they are invisible, but the opponent owning them will likely be KO'd when Star-Blasting Light is activated, informing the player of their removal.
