What's up, you guys?! we're on that halfway point of our "Яeverse Week", and today, we have probably the oddest Яeverse unit as far as art goes...

Demon Marquis, Amon "Яeverse"
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Dark Irregulars
Race: Demon
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Choose one of your źDark Irregulars╗ rear-guards, and lock it] This unit gets [Power]+1000 for each źDark Irregulars╗ in your soul until end of turn. If the number of źDark Irregulars╗ in your soul is six or more, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of turn. This ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn. (The locked card is turned face down, and cannot do anything. It turns face up at the end of the owner's turn.)
[CONT](VC): If you have a card named "Demon World Marquis, Amon" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+2000.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

...this one, as an actual card, is actually pretty interesting as it's currently the only Reverse Unit whose Limit Break doesn't cost any Counterblast at all and only asks to Lock a single unit. In exchange, Amon Я regains its previous ability to gain 1,000 Power for each card in the Soul but will also gain an extra Critical if you have 6 or more cards in your Soul. This can potentially make this a game-ending card within only a few turns as the cost of using this Limit Break is so cheap that you can do it every turn to apply constant pressure along with the formidable power boost seeing how Dark Irregulars are SO fast on putting cards into the Soul! That and unlike Vowing Saber Dragon, you're not restrained to Locking only a certain Legion like Eradicators or Amon units, so you aren't restricted to using Amon Я in just the Amon's Followers deck though that in itself is another debate to use it in said Legion. That and the fact that you can just Soul Charge in the original Amon makes it so that you'll already be in the amazing Crossride number the moment you ride into it. The only downsides I can think of for this card is that you can only use this effect once per turn (thankfully) and the fact that using said Limit Break will more than likely make your opponent over-guard against this behemoth...which can also qualify as a good thing depending on the situation.

Overall, I personally see Amon Я as the underlooked Reverse Unit and definitely deserves some kind of praise.

Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 2/5 (It goes from a giant demon to a tree.....I don't know what to say about this...)
Next Time: Does anyone know how to speak German???

Demon Marquis, Amon "Reverse"

3rd card for Space Week, and we have Demon Marquis Amon "Reverse" (ew, shorter title. Majin means High Demon in Japanese, so couldn't you have called him a Grand Demon or something? Just another thing that doesn't translate into English well. Or Bushiroad just suck at it).

I digress. What we have is a unit that can lock one of your rear-guards to gain 1000 power for every card in your soul. If you have more than 6, you gain a Critical. Ew, Late Game Critical, not even attempting to justify it by having bigger columns. You've locked a unit; unless it's your own Vanguard booster, it's basically swinging at the Vanguard for almost nothing.

I have tested a deck like this before, and it turned out really slow and awful. The problem I had was that because I was using it as a Crossride deck and therefore had to stack it up against other Crossride decks, all I got was just a bunch of units playing the 18k game with little room for actual cards with skills. With so much Vanilla, the deck was so slow at accumulating soul it basically made next to no difference; the lock meant it couldn't close the gap enough in power for the Critical to actually matter.

That's how I compare other Crossrides; they have to stack up to the best one (the End) or they can go the hell home. As it stands, this one's just seriously disappointing.

1.75/5

Demon Marquis, Amon Я. While every other clan resisted Void and Link Joker this guy WILLINGLY allowed himself to be Яeversed to gain power. Apparently he is republican. That being said, was his choice wise? As a Яeversed unit he locks his ally and gains a skill: for every card in the soul he gets +1000 power and if you have 6 or more cards he gets +1 critical of which, he can only do once. Amon my friend, Reijy is far scarier. So this idiot sold himself for power for almost nothing in my opinion. This is what happens when evil makes a deal with evil, they get almost nothing.

3/5. Bad republican…bad….
