After revealing and discussing this card at length with Matt and Clayton at Next Level Z, we spoil the card art for Pulverize.
This is a fantastic new freestyle rare that is going to help advance decks to press an attacking advantage or those that need to tutor a key card to prevent your opponent’s plans from coming to fruition.
Pulverize is not banished after use, so it may stay in your discard pile to allow you to set up again in the future. While the card choice is vulnerable to Black Corruption and other mill effects outside of combat, it sets you up to draw a crucial card like Wall Breaker, Sagacious Strike, Krillin’s Destructo Disc or more. To ensure you gain full advantage, it would be best to set up in your opponent’s combat turn.
Not only does Pulverize allow you to set up, but it also allows you the opportunity to deny your opponent with targeted discard pile removal, another big plus for this card, given recurrence is such a strong part of the game.
While this card might polarise opinion, it will Pulverize most decks, and definitely deserves consideration for inclusion in your post-Set 3 decks.
