Welcome to the Battle Spirits Wiki

Battle Spirits, (バトルスピリッツ) is a two-player collectible card game developed by Bandai, Sunrise Inc, and Carddass. The card game is part of the Battle Spirits franchise which revolves around several anime series, manga and the merchandise of toys and video games. Battle Spirits is similar to the TCG Duel Masters but is more evolved as it involves a core system which is used as a resource system for your players. I would like to welcome you to this wiki and I hope that you can be part of our community.

Featured Card Spotlight
This month's featured card spotlight is a card from the future: The SpaceNinja Baltan Seijin Basical Version, to be released March 19 in the newest collaboration booster BSC24. This card is based on Basical, an alternate version of the ever-popular Baltan Seijin and the antagonist of the Ultraman Cosmos movie. The ruler of the devastated Planet Baltan, he attempted to take over Earth so the multitudes of child Baltans would have a place to live. Just like the character, the card will quickly populate the field and cause trouble for whoever tries to oppose it.

Basical is one of a growing number of unlimited cards. You can have any number of them in a deck, from just one copy to a deck of nothing but Baltans. This effect makes it very easy to use support cards like Baltan Seijin's Clones, which can allow you mass summon Baltans from the trash. On the negative side of this, it's harder to find the right balance when there's no card limit. More copies also means more expendable. Since Basical is only cost 3 with a mere 1000 and 2000 BP at levels 1 and 2, it will easily be destroyed by cost/BP destruction. Since purple regularly summons from the trash anyway, this won't be much of a detriment. But if you'd rather not run out of cards and core, The WindShieldGuardian Tobimaru will save you the cost.

This spirit is also one of the first Purple/Green cards in years. Despite being so complementary (core gain/removal, exhaust spirit/destroy exhausted), it's an extremely rare combination. Perhaps Baltan's duality signals new purple/green support in the near future? Basical is both an Infernal Lord and a Ninja Gale, and can probably receive more support from the latter. For example, The ArmoredMothShinobi Hyakude will prevent bursts from activating while your Baltans attack, and The Blowing Whirlwind is a combination of refresh and exhaust. On the other hand, as Basical can swarm so easily, you can also combine it with The EvilSpear Shutori's effect for quick depletion, or with The MaliciousAlien Mephilas Seijin to deplete on the attack step instead. In summary, Basical's multiple colors and families make it easy to take advantage of some already strong effects.

At LV2, Basical has Bunshin: 1 when destroyed. In short, even if you destroy Basical, there'll be another spirit to replace it. There are a lot of cards that can power up Bunshin spirits with higher BP and more symbols, so Basical's clones can become even more powerful than the original Basical. You can also combine Bunshin with Curse through The Depths of the Nether World, essentially annihilating anything that blocks while giving you another spirit to attack the life with later. It's a powerful end-game combo if it's been set up properly. Basical's true strength lies in how you utilizes its inevitable destruction.

It'd be impossible to talk about Basical without talking about the X-Rare Baltan, The SpaceNinja Baltan Seijin. The Cost 6 Baltan is made to work hand in hand with the Cost 3 Basical. Baltan mass summons other Baltans from the deck (up to 5 at a time, without cost), and if another Cost 6 Baltan is among them, you can even repeat that effect. It's an even faster way to fill the field with spirits. Baltan's LV2 effect is just as helpful, increasing the core in the reserve whenever Ninja Gales, Infernal Lords, or Bunshin spirits attack. That includes both Basical and whatever Bunshins it creates.

The SpaceNinja Baltan Seijin Basical Version is all about the support cards. There are so many choices to make about the type of deck you'd like to make with it -- how many to put in; the balance of purple, green, and any other colors; what kind of families will make up the majority; how much focus to give Bunshin or destruction effects; when to save versus when to sacrifice. There are countless decisions to make when creating a Baltan deck. It's a very complex card to work with, more so than its low cost and BP might suggest at first. But if you're dedicated enough to the kaiju cause, the many Basicals can be powerful allies.

Character of the Month
Toshiie Homura is one of the rivals offered to Yukimura in Battle Spirits Burning Soul, using the same color as the main character, just under a different facet, focusing on BP Destruction rather than battles. Despite his yakuza-like appearance, attitude and playstyle, Toshi is perhaps among the gentlest characters on BSBS. First of all, he tolerates Nagayori around him, not discriminating for a moment the fact Nagayori has more bark than bite. Second, when Yukimura wanted to test his Soul Burst, he challenged Toshi. Despite the implication of being used as nothing more than a stepping stone for Yukimura to get above Kanetsugu, Toshiie still accepted it. Third, despite having little to no connection with her (at least shown on-screen) when Souun was defeated by Maou, he showed much more worry than anyone else. Next, when the lone wolf Shingen prepared to leave without offering any words, Toshiie didn't allow for that and made sure to exchange goodbyes with the War Devil. Lastly, despite insisting he's battling for his own sake and interests, he still carries Souun's "hope" within him, the wish to prove their battles aren't for nothing resides within him.

Regarding his playstyle, it's as violent and intense as expected of Red. Sengoku Ashliger can open a way to the opponent's life, take two lives and refresh afterwards. Leon-Lancer has high odds of clearing the field and taking two lives (one through its effect, one by its attack) as well. His most recent trump is Great Eccentric Flame, which can destroy small fry spirits and allow his own Emperor Beasts to refresh. His main tactic is clearly to open the way to the opponent's life and mercilessly assault at once, even if cornered to the gates of  hell, a single chance is all he needs to grasp a victory.

Regarding the man his name comes from, their characters  overlay in certain points. Both are eccentrics in their fashion style  and attitudes, both have a hot-blooded demeanor and a strong sense of loyalty can be felt on both of them. Their relationships, however, aren't quite as well translated. Toshiie Maeda was a loyal retainer to Oda, then became Toyotomi's right hand. Homura sees both as enemies he must defeat and nothing more. On a personal opinion, judging by his usual behavior, his friendship with Yukimura and dedication to strenght, while not a bad Toshiie in any way, I see him working better as Keiji Maeda than Toshiie Maeda.

Among references to the real personality, three stand out. First of all, Sengoku Tiger, which recalls to Toshiie Maeda's clothes which were styled after tiger fur. The second one is Leon-Lancer, which references to Maeda's nickname of sorts, Matazaemon of the Spear. The third reference comes from Hideyoshi, who calls Toshi a dog during their battle. Before his coming of age, when he still hadn't joined the Oda Army, Toshiie Maeda went by the name of Inuchiyo ('Inu' written with the kanji for 'Dog').

A strong personality with a few layers of depth, plus great skills as a battler (Seen during his match against Hideyoshi, where he surpassed even Invincibility and on his matches with Kanetsugu, where knowing his opponent plays a huge role on how he forms his strategies) give Toshiie many points as a developed character. If Burning Soul/Legend is to leave any marks, certainly the character of Toshiie Homura is to be one of them. Whether he wins or loses, he'll certainly prove to be the non-main character to show the greatest battle against Dairokuten Maou.
