Blue Storm Cadet, Marios -
Oct. 16, 2014
[AUTO]: Forerunner (When a unit of the same clan rides this unit, you may call this unit to (RC))
[AUTO](RC):When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted, if you have an «Aqua Force» vanguard, and if it is the third battle of that turn or more, look at five cards from the top of your deck, search for up to one card with "Maelstrom" in its card name from among them, reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
4th card of the week is Blue Storm's newest starter,
Marios. When he boosts the third attack and it hits, you
check the top 5 cards of your deck for a Maelstrom card,
add it to the hand, and shuffle the other 4 back in the
deck. Oh, and it costs nothing extra.
Neat, I suppose, but Marios is no Morgenrot. He only has
about 8 targets compared to Morgenrot, and while
admittedly free, Marios requires that your Vanguard
attacks third, so you'll have to assume you have two
attackers ready to go (or a re-stander like Tidal
Assault) in order to net anything. Otherwise, the only
time when he can be expected to go live is on Grade 3,
before the opponent's on 4 damage, and that you have two
attackers, or one double attacker. Any later, and the
opponent will drop the guard in his face because
Critical triggers exist.
Admittedly, if a deck can set up Dorothea easily enough
there's no reason it can't be done for Marios, but it's
already a crapshoot and only gets worse as time goes on.
He's okay, but I wish he could have been a little
Blue Storm Cadet, Marios
Oh hey, Maelstrom support. It's pretty simple, if
the attack is the 3rd or higher, search the top 5 for a
Maelstrom and add it to the hand. It's a reusable
Grade 3 searcher, which is very nice. Early game,
mid-game, late-game? Doesn't matter, just search
for a Maelstrom if the attack hits that this boosted.
Not much to say, it's a very good unit and pretty
annoying to deal with, but that's what Aqua Force is at
