Taboo Star-Vader, Rubidium
Oct. 22, 2014
[AUTO]:[Retire this unit] When this unit is placed on (GC), if you have a card named "Star-vader, "Omega" Glendios" on your (VC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your rear-guards with "Я" in its card name, the unit that is being attacked during that battle changes to that unit, and all of your guardians guard that unit.
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
Wednesday bring what is
basically Glendios's main line of defence, Rubidium.
When the opponent attacks Glendios, drop this as guard,
and then it disappears from the guardian circle as a
cost to redirect the attack to a Reverse rear-guard.
NOTE ON OFFICIAL RULING: If
a card like Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion attacks more than
one unit and you drop this, it forces all the attacks to
become one singular attack towards the Reverse unit.
Also, since your interceptor is no longer being
attacked, it can now intercept. It's the ultimate troll
play when they've spent Counterblast 3 and you drop this
effectively costless shield.
The reason for this thing's
existence is obvious. You're meant to deal with the fact
that you can't toss Reverse units as the cost for the
Perfect Guard by having this card as your defence
instead. Truthfully however, I am not comfortable with
abandoning them entirely, not since the number of
available Reverse units is thin enough as it is, and
realistically the number of non-Link Joker Reverse units
run in the deck isn't really making enough of an impact
in terms of available fodder (especially since Reverse
Cradle, which is already a Link Joker exists).
Second problem is what, apart from PGs, you would
reasonably drop to make room. You've got Ruin Magicians,
Praseodymiums, and however many PGs you want, and
realistically not much more than that since you've had
to cut other Grades to make room for the Reverse cards
in your deck. You need to remember that for every one of
this you run, you're giving up not running the Perfect
It's okay, I suppose, but I
don't really enjoy sacrificing the consistency PGs
Taboo Star-vader, Rubidium
The fact that you'll likely have a lot of grade 3s in
your hand, not to mention that most of them won't be
Link Joker, it really makes it hard for Glendios to use
Well, this card makes up for it in a major, major way.
When your opponent attacks Glendios, you can redirect
the attack towards a Reverse unit that you control,
keeping Glendios safe and only losing some of your field
in the process.
Essentially, it's a cost-less Perfect Guard.
However, there is a big benefit for this card. Any
card that has an effect that will only activate when
attacking the vanguard will lose that ability because
they're not attacking the Vanguard, they're attacking a
If you've got the World's End ready to go, you can just
sit there and go "where are you aiming?". And even
if you aren't going for that, you still get to control
the flow of the opponent's attacks, thus saving you a
lot of cards in your hand.
