As BS24 have come out,players have welcome the idea of placing cards of immense power into their decks,namely "Ultimate".Ultimate is a new type of cards that first appear in 2 trial decks,TD19 and TD 20.The first 2 ultimate,Ultimate-Siegfried and Ultimate-Odin,reign supreme as their effects and BP overpower all decks before them,the only way to defeat during that time is either a battle between ultimates or a BP battle, where your spirit must rise beyond the 20k bp,which proves to be a challenge to most players.However,with the help of BS24,ultimate have come out in various colours,letting players to have a chance to challenge and defeat other ultimate players.This card review introduce all of us to the currently most destructive ultimate,Ultimate-Siegfrieden.
Ultimate-Siegfrieden is 1 of the current ultimates to possess a core cost of 7,its reduction consists of 2 red symbol and 2 white symbol,and possess the symbol thats unique to the ultimate,the gold symbol.The gold symbol means that it is an Ultimate and therefore, it is not treated as a spirit. While this makes Ultimate-Siegfrieden immune to any effects which would target spirits. On the downside, this also includes positive spirit-targeting effects,like charge which would help effects like increasing core removal or card destruction,DOES NOT support the ultimates .Also, it can't be braved, and you can’t use the gold symbol for cost reduction.It belongs to the family Incarnate, Ancient Dragon and Armed Machine and possess the same ultimate trigger abiltiy as all the other ultimates,but each ultimate trigger differs from 1 another.Another rule to remember,The one card put into Trash by Ultimate-Trigger cannot be stopped by anti-deck destruction as they have different wording in Japanese. It also cannot be increased by blue Charge.
All ultimates have a catch,is that they have a summon condition, aside from the normal summoning method of paying the proper cost,for example,they need 1 spirit or more with a certain colour to be on the field to summon.In the case of Ultimate-Siegfrieden,it needs to have 1 or more Red spirits and 1 or more White spirits on your field to fulfill the summon condition.Be careful with colour switching spirits,as they can switch their colours,they are still consider a single spirit,so for example,you will need 2 or more mugendra to summon a Ultimate-Siegfrieden.The most common failing of summoning a Ultimate is you dont have a single spirits on the field when you need it.Ultimate also have another aspect that differs them from spirits,normally,when spirits are summon,they are summon at LV1,2,3 or even at LV 4,Ultimate however,started at LV 3,then LV 4,finally reaching LV 5.
When summon,it starts at LV 3,with a BP value of 12000 for 1 core.Next,at 3 core,it reach the limit of all spirits without the help of braves,spells or nexus,20000 BP,at LV 4.Finally,at LV 5,with 6 cores,it reach the current highest BP value, 30000.Truly a value to be fear.This card possess the Ultimate-Trigger at all LV,and its activate when it attack,when Ultimate-Trigger hits, for each 1 cost of the card moved to trash by Ultimate-Trigger, destroy 1 opponent's Spirit with 10000 BP or less.(Ultimate-Trigger: Move 1 card from your opponents deck to the trash. If the cost of that card is lower than this ultimate, it will hit),with the help of this Ultimate-Trigger,any amount of spirits that have a BP value of less than 10000 will most definitely be destroy in a flash.However,if the cost of the card is equal or higher,it does not hit.Its 2nd effect is aim at other ultimates and only can be used during the opponent attack step and it needs to be at LV4 and 5,when an opponent's Ultimate attacks, by discarding 1 Ultimate card from your hand, refresh this Ultimate.This effect gives you safety against opponent's ultimate attack at the risk of losing a ultimate in hand.
Based on my own opinion,Ultimate-Siegfrieden is best used in a deck with low cost spirits,such as the 2 spirits soul type spirit,Ryuuman-Crow and Automaticgunner ,this 2 special spirits give and extra symbol for reduction when summoning Ultimate,after the Ultimate been summon the extra symbol will disappear.Mixing in low costs spirit from the 2 trial deck and from BS24 would also be of great help,add in The IceShieldGuardian Ohshin for ensuring your low costs spirit defend themselves against destruction effect.If looking for burst support,use battle stopping spells like Burst Wall and Ultimate Wall,for extra draw power,having cards like Triple Draw,Burst Draw and Double Blaster.If needing extra firepower,having 1 The DragonHero Sieg-Yamato-Fried and a few The GlacialHero Lord-Dragon-Glazar may come in handy.The 2 nexus that i would recommend are
The Falling World and The Fortress Metropolis of Eternal Snow,since both of them provide support to both spirits and ultimate.Normal spells should be focusing on simple draw power like Neo-Double Draw,life preserving for Ice Age Shield,getting rid of low BP spirits or nexus using Flame Spark,Sagitta Flame and Brave Destruction.You will just need a minimum of 3 types of Ultimate for your decks,namely,Ultimate-Odin,Ultimate-Siegfried and Ultimate-Siegfrieden.
If your opponent is using a pure red version of Ultimate-Siegfrieden,try playing The NetherThreeGiants Queen-Merduk,as her Destructive Curse will prove to be a devastating effect on your opponent.If your opponent try using the pure white version of Ultimate-Siegfrieden,try countering your opponent with its pure red version.Using core removal on the opponent spirits will also limit your opponent from making a move.Deck destruction is also recommend as it can discard Ultimate-Siegfrieden before it even appear.
Its artwork showing to have a powerful valor,almighty power.It truly can be called a Ultimate Dragon.I give this card 10/10.
