What's up, you guys?! So this week, we're looking at
a lot of unorthodox, and even older, cards that seem to
have gone on the wayside as of late, and today, we have
a cards that best summarizes that statement:
Clan: Aqua Force
Race: Tear Dragon
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you
have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (2)] Until end
of turn, this unit gets [Power]+3000
and "[AUTO](VC):When this unit's attack hits a vanguard,
if it is the third battle of that turn or more, choose
up to two of your «Aqua Force» rear-guards, and [Stand]
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks, if it is the third
battle of that turn or more, this unit gets [Power]+3000
until end of that battle.
...for some Aqua Force players, this was the first ace
that they ever used mainly because they bought 4 copies
of the Aqua Force Trial Deck and made their decks the
way they are today after that. However, now that the
clan has many new aces, like Trans-core Dragon, the
Maelstrom Duo and even Revonn, does Navelgazer even have
a spot in players' decks anymore? Personally speaking,
only if you can't afford the aforementioned cards. Navelgazer
has a mediocre 10,000 Power that can become 13,000 if
you have him attack 3rd or higher, which the deck can
easily do with Diamantes, Basil, Benedict and the likes,
and his Limit Break is good in pressurizing situations,
but I wouldn't recommend it seeing how there are better
options for cheaper and/or better.
if you can't afford Revonn or the Maeltrom brothers,
then I'd say go for Hydro Hurricane for this; at least
Hydro threatens the opponent's field.
Next Time: The only non-Aqua Force unit on this week's
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
Called it. Pojo didn't like anything I picked last week.
So now as punishment I face another week of really
boring stuff after one slightly interesting card.
Said interesting card for today is a card as old as dirt
- Navelgazer Dragon. Late Game, you can pre-pay a cost
of CB2, he then gains 3k, and if he attacks third and
hits the VG, two of your RGs stands. Oh, and he also
gets 3k if he attacks third normally.
He used to be okay. I mean, yes, when he was released
Maelstrom and Hydro Hurricane Dragon were also out, but
this guy still had a niche. All because he could attack
third, and not fourth like the other bosses. Because he
doesn't need to attack last, units based on 4 battle
such as Algos and Valeria love this guy because trigger
effects can be passed to them. Generating 3 attacks
before them meant quite a bit of pressure Late Game. But
of course, it's got a few weaknesses. If he does hit,
you pretty much need an entire column re-stood with this
skill (which the column involving Algos/Valeria probably
will already be), and so all that's left is the column
that generated the 1st and 2nd battle, which would most
likely be the Storm Riders, who's column is now all
messed up. So a smart opponent could just not guard and
spare shield for the 4th battler.
I say USED to be okay because a Navelgazer deck really
does not cut it anymore in an age where finishers had to
become ridiculous to compete with the old crowd again.
Navelgazer's just too frail and chance-based to matter
