Unit of The Week: Tenacious Maiden, Noel

There is no mistake. The seeds of hope exist. 

[ACT](RC) Generation Break 2:[Choose a card from your hand, and discard it] If you have a vanguard with “Ranunculus” in its card name, until end of turn, this unit gets “[CONT](RC):This unit can attack a vanguard from the back row.”.
Bloom-[AUTO](RC):When your other unit with the same card name as this unit is placed on (RC), all of your units in the same column as this unit get [Power]+4000 until end of turn.

Tenacious Maiden, Noel is one of the sweetest girls from the Zoo Nation. She lends support for Ranunculus. She continues the new trend of rear-guards with keywords. She has Neo Nectar’s keyword Bloom. Players will need to play a complete set of Tenacious Maiden, Noel to be consistent. You can find her in the character booster set of TRY 3 NEXT.

Tenacious Maiden, Noel’s first skill is Generation Break two and allows her to attack a vanguard from the back row at the cost of discarding one card from your hand. You must have a vanguard with Ranunculus in its name to use this ability. You can have five attacks if you have all four copies of on the Tenacious Maiden, Noel field. It is only wise to pay the skill’s cost if you have a good amount of cards in your hand.

Tenacious Maiden, Noel’s second skill features Neo Nectar’s Bloom! All units in the same column gain 4,000 power when this unit blooms. The additional power makes a Noel in the back row strong enough to hit a vanguard. The other unit does not need to be Noel. Any unit in the same column gain the additional 4,000 power.

However, do not be fooled by the anime. Bloom is not as consistent as it is on television. My experience shows the ability is consistent, but it will encounter flaws in some games. Sometimes cards are placed in the damage zone or opponents will retire important cards. Not every game will be perfect and you may need to focus on other units with the Bloom ability.

Overall, Tenacious Maiden, Noel is a nice card. Her ability to attack from the back raw makes her a threat. She adds more pressure on the opponent. This ability is only useful if you are able to perform multiple blooms in a single turn. She can be inconsistent if you are unable to call more than two in a single turn. Tenacious Maiden, Noel will bloom your vanguard to victory!

Card Rating: 3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
