King Kai is shaping up to be a major player in the ally & control worlds, with cards like Bubbles – Curious ready to crush the dreams of anyone looking to turn the tides with a specific card. Knowledge is always a good thing in games, and especially DBZ, where deciding not only WHAT to do, but WHEN to do it, can secure victory or ensure defeat.
King Kai’s Joy Ride shares a rare parenthetical with cards like Tug of War and Dr. Wheelo’s Revival, in that it will trigger off of mill (self-inflicted or not) and damage. You can also take advantage of the parenthetical AND trigger it for endurance, a la Tug of War, adding some extra value to an amazing hand reveal (yes, there’s that pseudo-keyword that will trigger many a Black Style card).
When not used for its passive effects, it’s an ally tutor for a non-constant ally, and it lets you rejuvenate Bubbles or Gregory from your Banished Zone in case of emergency. Since it has a skip effect, you can run this card without being worried that whatever ally you search for will just get blown away by your opponent’s next action.
You can check out King Kai’s other named card launching this weekend on TCG Top Tier!
