What's up, you guys?! It's Thursday and time to do
another COTD! Today, we have a personal favorite of mine
from Set 8...
Arboros Dragon, Sephirot
Clan: Neo Nectar
Race: Forest Dragon
[CONT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you
have four or more damage):All of your źNeo Nectar╗ get
"[CONT](VC/RC):During your turn, if you have a unit with
the same name as this unit on your (VC) or (RC), this
unit gets [Power]+3000.".
[CONT](VC):If you have a card named "Arboros Dragon,
Timber" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+1000.
When this card came out for Set 8, a lot of Neo
Nectar players (and even a few non-Neo Nectar ones)
debated on whether they were going to swear oath to the
Musketeers of the flowers or to the Arboros Dragon. For
me, the choice was simple as a lot of local players
claimed they were swearing to the flower brigade...that
and I freaking love dragons, so I grabbed Arboros
Dragon...and boy, was I ever glad that I did!
The Arboros Dragon Ride Chain is extremely similar to
Spectral Duke Dragon's as for both how it starts and how
they resolve their unique effects. For Sephirot, every
time you move to the next piece of the ride chain, you
get to Superior Call a copy of a rear-guard from your
deck. That's a pretty nice trick, but most people are
wondering on why you would want to clone a rear guard?
Riddle me this then: what's so wrong about getting
another free Corolla Dragon or Iris Knight? Exactly.
There IS no drawback. Also, Sephirot is at 11,000 if the
ride chain is successful. With that in mind, let's take
a look at the Limit Break...
The Limit Break is actually rather unique as its one
of, if not the only, Limit Break that's actually a CONT
skill rather than a ACT or AUTO skill like others. With
that said, it allows all of your units a +3,000 power
boost if there's a copy of itself on the field in which
case, both units would be +3,000. Going back to that
cloned Corolla Dragon; if Limit Break was online, then
they would be 11,000 power boosters! That alone is
enough trouble to force out a few cards in an opponent's
In short, the Limit Break is pretty easy to pull off
whether its the Ride Chain or not and with the right
field setup, could be a potential game ender!
Rating: (for its own clan) 5/5
Next Time: From 4 awesome cards to a piece of Dung...
