Aster Phoenix (Edo Phoenix in JP) is a professional duelist and a child prodigy. Famous for being a celebrity, he made an impact around the world, introducing Duel Monsters to the masses. Making an appearance in the second season of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, he is better known to be the anti-hero counterpart to Jaden, and was able to be one of the few people who were able to beat Jaden Yuki in a duel.
Destiny Calling Can be used after your Life Points are at 2000 or below. Play the Field Spell "Dark City." If there already is Field Spell on your side of the Field, return it to your hand. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
Master of Fusion Can be used each time your Life Points decrease by 1800. In the Draw Phase, instead of doing a normal draw, Polymerization spell card, from outside of your Deck, is added to your hand.
Reinforcements Can be used each time your Life Points decrease by 1800. Return 1 card from your hand to your Deck and draw a random Warrior-Type monster.
Bring it! Can be used each time your Life Points decrease by 1800. In the Draw Phase, instead of doing a normal draw, draw a random Level 8・Dark・Warrior Monster Card from your deck.
Created by Aster Phoenix's father, Aster uses a Destiny Hero deck, consisting of Dark Warrior-Type monsters that resembles the "Elemental HERO" archetype that Jaden uses. Its playstyle revolves around using Clock Tower Prison by stalling the duel, and then destroying the field spell to special summon Destiny HERO - Dreadmaster, along with the other destiny hero monsters for a beatdown.
I don't know what Aster was thinking going on TV and saying he was the best. He was darn lucky that Kaiba was not watching that because he would have flown over there in helicopter and dueled the heck out of Aster. I also think that Kaiba should have beat Yugi. His deck was more focused and he was the only one in the virtual world who knew what he was doing and not building stupid decks.
Firstly, yes Aster was so lucky because Kaiba would mop the floor with him (I don't mean that Aster is weak, but Kaiba is far stronger)
Secondly, I agree, Kaiba should have beat Yugi but that's because of the fúcking writer!
Someone tell me what kind of cheat is the heart of the cards and the power of friendship!?
Pegasus should have beat Yugi too, but the stupid power of friendship defeated him
This is exactly what I said once! This site is so screwed up sometimes. Like when they said his Destiny Calling skill activates at 2000 LP (it is 3000), or when they claim that Yugi got the Millennium Necklace (it is the Puzzle, of course) from his grandpa.
They should make an alternate version of GX where Aster is the main character instead. He would come to Duel Academy in the first year and actually stay in Obelisk Blue and wear the uniform. Then the whole show could be about him saving the world and kicking everyone's butt at dueling with his Destiny Heroes (and probably being rude to his opponents). I would totally pay to watch this if it ever happened.
I wouldn't want to erase the Jaden version to do this. But if there was a way to have both, it would be cool. Maybe it would be one of the possible alternate dimensions they mentioned in season 3. Speaking of season 3, that is the most difficult thing to figure out here. They would have to make up other stuff for the Aster version since season 3 really depends on Jaden to work. (Yubel, etc.)
I almost got dragged into liking Cardfight Vanguard, but the first episode of the anime that I watched, happens to be the episode where the MAIN PROTAGONIST debuted a new light dragon thing that turned the table for him.....and still lost anyway.
Got so pissed I decided not to care about CFV anymore. Haha, good job there, Bushitroad.
