Your Premier Site for the Transformers Trading Card Game
It's time to Buckle Down on the meta-game! Energize mechanics have run rampant through ATP-6 with little recourse so far in the spoilers…Well today we are going to change that! However, before we get there let us remind ourselves of the new and interesting ways to interact with the wording boundaries put onto us by the design of the game.
Secret Actions, specifically, are cards we have tried to evolve over time by increasing the trigger points in a game for them to be revealed. This started with Survive in ATP-2 which triggers when a character would be damaged, and evolved in ATP-4 with the addition of “The Protocols” that trigger when your opponent plays a card.
Buckle Down is an anti-Energize Secret Action along with some support against Seekers and Heralds of the meta-game. “Move” damage is something that has very little recourse in the game and over time it is a form of damage that has been given a fair amount of additions with not enough cards to combat it. In ATP-6 we were looking to aid in the effort against this type of damage on several different axis's. Reinforced Hull is an armor, Buckle Down is a Secret Action, and we can’t forget ATP-6 Hot Rod also prevents damage being moved to him specifically. In aggressive decks, Buckle Down can also provide a potential +2 to defense with new cards KO’d after being played, Fighting Dirty and Fevered Edge for example.
Hopefully this is a nice card to add to your toolkit to combat different forms of the meta-game. It’s truly been a lot fun running through all the spoilers thus far this Spoiler Season. We're approaching the end with a few more cards left to reveal! Thanks again for all the support so far, and I can’t wait to see what players will do once ATP-6 is in their hands!
Until next time,
