WCCIC Review

I'm surprised this card isn't Rare. Buying these from the store, they're only rated as Uncommon. This card opens up some real possibilities for you and some tangible fears for your opponent. Now, all you need is an Excalibur with a simple weapon system or pilot and you can kill the opposing Carrier. With a rating of 3, you need something fairly maneuverable to use Assault the Carrier, but if you're going in for the kill, pulling out your expensive stock isn't difficult. An Excalibur, anything Elite or Drakhai, Sorthaks, Bloodfangs, anything is game. All you need is an Attack value of 3 to damage the Carrier. And if you can get a value of 6, you can destroy it and win. This necessitates defense fighters for your Carrier in case your oponnent decides to use it.
This is card may be the single most important reason to keep your Carrier well guarded and presents an easy way to win the game if your opponent isn't on the ball.
