What's up, Rogue Squad?!  So for today's Card of the Day, we're dealing with something of an oxymoron by name, but the question is is it essential in it's deck?  Let's find out:

Mars Blaukleuger
Power: 9000
Grade 2
Clan: Nova Grappler
Race: Battleroid
[AUTO](RC):[Counter Blast(1)] When an attack by your vanguard with "Blau" in its card name hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, [Stand] this unit, and this unit gets [Power]+5000 until the end of turn.

...Mars is definitely a unique unit in it's own way though I personally see a bit of a situational problem with this card along with another card we're going to be taking a look at later in the week, but let's take a look at today's card.  A Grade 2 with 9,000 Power, aside from the 10,000 vanillas like Damned Leo, King of Sword and others, it's still one of the better stats in the game, and this card can actually become stronger should this situational effect go off.  Whenever a Blau Vanguard hits the opponent's Vanguard, you can Counterblast 1 to restand Mars with an extra 5,000 Power.  Personally, this card is really good in an early game state, where the damage is still before the Break Ride/Limit Break state, and cards like this have an opportunity to help out in an early game swarm.  However, I only recommend using this effect if the opponent isn't getting any extra Power boost like Striken or a regular Damage Check.

Aside from that, Mars is at least a decent card in its deck, but I'd rather retain my Counterblasting for Mond, Galaxy or even Stern Blaukleuger, so I say to just stick with Grosse Baer.

Rating: 2/5
Art: 2/5 (Probably one of the least action packed Gundam arts of the subclan...disappointing.)
Next Time: If I'm rating and critiquing cards, does that make me a Critic?

Go Rogue...Go Pro!

Mars Blaukluger
 
Okay, this is a little better. Mars Blaukluger. When your Blau Vanguard attack hits, you can Counterblast 1 and re-stand him, and give him 5k power to boot.
 
Neat little combo you can do with him is to ride Blaukluger, hit with him, pay the cost for Mars, then use Blaukluger to flip the damage back face-up. That’s a free damage or another card knocked out of the opponent for cheap (not even getting started on Morgenrot), which is just dandy.
 
However, you do need to watch what you do. Keep in mind you need 2 open damage for your Grade 3 Stern Blaukluger ride, although if that’s not possible, spend away! Just make sure there’s enough damage for Galaxy Blaukluger.
 
This card’s got synergy, and synergy’s good. Revengers kick ass because of synergy.
 
3/5
