Changes to Cards in the January 26 Release

Greetings, Shadowverse fans! In the January 26 (PT) release, we'll be making changes to 2 cards. This is an explanation of what we're changing and why.

What's Changing?


1. Diabolus Agito's cost will be decreased by 1.
2. Yuzuki, Righteous Demon's cost will be decreased by 1, and its Accelerate effect will be changed.




Since Diabolus Agito and Yuzuki, Righteous Demon are being strengthened, they will not receive a vial bonus when being liquefied.

The Current Game Environment


As we previously explained in the "Changes to Take Two Cards in the January 13 Release" announcement, after going over high-ranking match data from early January, we found no top deck archetypes with an overwhelming win or usage rate in either the Rotation and Unlimited formats. We've therefore decided not to change any cards in this format.
However, in order to help classes with current low usage and win rates and diversify the current play environment, we will be strengthening Diabolus Agito and Yuzuki, Righteous Demon.

Details


1. Diabolus Agito's cost will be decreased from 5 to 4.

2. Yuzuki, Righteous Demon's cost will be decreased from 7 to 6 and its Accelerate effect will be changed.
Before:
Accelerate (2): Destroy an enemy follower with 4 defense or less. Deal 2 damage to your leader.

After:
Accelerate (2): Destroy an enemy follower with 4 defense or less. Deal 1 damage to your leader.

Take Two and Open 6 Runs


These changes will also be applied to all Take Two and Open 6 decks after maintenance, even decks that are being used in the middle of a five-match run.

Future Changes to Cards


We routinely review match data in the Shadowverse Team. In order to maintain a great game environment, we change card costs and effects and boost the number of vials that are available from liquefying cards when their strength is decreased. This includes both of our constructed formats, Rotation and Unlimited. In addition to the card changes we've made in the past and card changes targeted at Rotation, we will designate cards to have a one-card restriction or card bans for Unlimited.

Any future changes to card costs and effects will be announced in advance, and then changes will generally be made the next day. The next card adjustments are scheduled for February 19 (PT).

Even if there are no changes made to cards, we'll still make an announcement. If emergency changes are deemed necessary, we may make changes, specify restrictions, or specify banned cards before the scheduled update.

That's all for this round. See you next update!
