OMG. WANT. Finally a card that’s making me REALLY, REALLY excited to play Madoka again. The adversity ability activates only when you’re one away from defeat, but this card can turn things around in a big hurry. And getting two for one when you lose this card means you’re not going to be scared to approach with it. Very, VERY nice.

If 3 or more events have been played this turn, 1 of your characters named 「Madoka Kaname」 cannot be put into your discard pile from the play area this turn.

[Main/Both]: {0} An event has been played this turn, give 1 of your characters +20/+20 until end of turn.

Thoughts and comments
Playing one event each turn is totally doable and a free +20/+20 is very nice. Getting three events to be played every turn isn’t so easy, but the reward is definitely worth it, especially on your opponent’s turn. Also, I’m trying a new experiment with this card’s text formatting. Can everyone see the “{0}” just fine? Are you seeing anything that looks out of the ordinary?
Precious Memories - Madoka Movie - Release from Despair Release from Despair (03-117)

Cost: 5 Source: 2

[Approach/Opponent]: Remove 1 of the cards in your point pile from the game.

Thoughts and comments
As usual, healing cards are super-expensive. These types of cards are so unlikely to get played when you can just prevent taking points through blocking or preventing attacks with free events. The bottom line is that this card isn’t going to help you make progress towards winning the game.

A nice big character with a cycling ability. This title still needs some way to provide more than 2 source from a single card to make this worth it.
Precious Memories - Madoka Movie - Sayaka Miki & Kyouko Sakura Sayaka Miki & Kyouko Sakura (P-015)

Cost: 5 Source: 2 AP: 50 DP: 40

(Combo)

When this card appears on the play area, you may discard a character with the same name as this card. If you do, you may put a +10/+10 coin on this card and draw 1 card.

Thoughts and comments
This card is actually playable with the current card pool, unlike its Homura & Madoka counterpart because there’s a Kyouko that provides 3 source to Kyouko characters and Kamijou reduces the cost of one of your Sayaka characters by 1 each turn. Looking at the art for this card makes me feel bad for Kyouko…she just can’t get Sayaka’s attention.

    The cost box shows up fine here. What’s your display method for that?

    The 5-cost combi art is funny because the two cards obviously form one bigger picture with Madoka and Sayaka as the focus, but they decided to make it into the classic MadoHomu SayakaKyouko pairs. Except that Homura and Kyouko both look less than happy xD.

      The cost box is just an image I shopped out of a card. This is my latest attempt to make my translations look more professional. Magic translations make use of the mana and tap symbols, so I’m trying to find something like that for Precious Memories.
