All of my decks on this forum are conveniently listed and linked here.

Fire-based striker. I'm hoping this one's distinct enough from Ra.

No art, but imagine an Asian teenager in a leather jacket and jeans with long black hair that turns into flames and eyes that glow when she's using her powers. Default facial expression is some gradient of angry. The art for the Red Hot Kick is actually an Inazuma Kick.

I really like this deck, seems like a lot of fun. Love the concept of the character and the flavor. With that being said, I feel a couple cards could be tweaked a little. Maybe make a little bit of bad to Slow Burn as it seems really good to destroy any ongoing or environment card and getting to deal damage to anything you want. Feels like it should have a little bit of a drawback. Meltdown flavor wise I also feel should not distinct ally from friend as it is kind of a temper tantrum and would make it more of a carefully used play instead of "Hey, Why Not." Just my 2 cents. Again, love the deck.

I waffled for a while on Meltdown. It's basically Fueled Freeze that trades some self-damage for the ability to target Environment cards. Having no downside would make it clearly too much better than Fueled Freeze (which is already one of the better cards in the game), but full global friendly fire might be going too much the other way, especially with the +damage Sukeban can potentially stack. I'm not sure how to tweak this perfectly.

Slow Burn's main limiting factor is that you have to have it up at the start of your turn, so it's less reactive. On the other hand, you can have it queued up in advance, so...

I'll probably make Meltdown Ongoing-only and Slow Burn Environment-only, unless someone else can come up with something better.

If you had more cards like Inflammatory Language, mixing fire-damage one-shots with deck manipulation, I think you'd have no problem making this hero stand apart from Ra. Right now, that feels like her strongest card, thematically, and I'm honestly highly amused by it.

Make Slow Burn into "At the start of your turn, you must destroy an ongoing or environment card." And let it burn itself. Slowly.
Or maybe "At the start of your turn, destroy an ongoing or environment card, or have Sukeban deal herself 2 fire damages." devil

So if you're playing against a Villain (or Env) with a lot of annoying Ongoing cards, do you pay the price to keep this alive, or do you destroy it.

I'm curious - She has a card that increases her melee damage, but she only has two way to deal melee damage (a one shot and he base power). She also has better powers than just "Play a card", and likely won't be using her base power much unless she gets wiped of ongoings.

I think External Combustion is less situational than you say, but it's fine if it isn't. Even Ra has Wrathful Gaze.

For one, Blazing Fist does more damage to a single target than Heat Wave, and she doesn't have any other damaging powers. For another, some of her one-shots are really good, so it's fair to want to pass up on the chance to punch someone to play a second Conflagration or Red Hot Kick. You might even use it to get more Ongoings up faster. Finally, an extra play gives Sukeban the opportunity to Firebreak into Conflagration, sparing her allies the collateral damage. Earlier versions of this deck had more unfriendly damage, so the combo may have been more obvious.

Yeah, sometimes she'd be better off using her power on Burn Up, but she won't always be built up enough to make that the best play.

Changelog 29OCT16

Wow, Burn Up is pretty good, especially with all the instances of damage Sukeban has access to. I'm not convinced she's worse than Ra for that, but I'm dialing back some of her damage for now.

Conflagration and Wildfire have had their damage decreased.

Incandescent Rage no longer has an effect upon entering play.

Melt Down now only works on Ongoing cards.

Slow Burn now only works on Environment cards, and its effect is mandatory.


I'm considering reducing the healing from Hot Blooded. I'm concerned that it could make her tankier than I'd intended. On the other hand, 1 HP seems a little weak considering what else she could be doing with her power.

Temperature puns aside, Burn Up is a really cool ability. I do feel like an ongoing that makes her immune to fire damage kind of hamstrings a lot of the self-damage that lets her other cards do wild and crazy things without being overpowered. Maybe if it reduced fire damage dealt to her? You could even make it 2 DR and have it be just damage dealt to herself. Since she can make everyone immune for a round, it also seems redundant to throw that on top of personal immunity.
