We continue our BT15 Interesting stuff crackdown with
another new Revenger, Desperate Dragon. Limit
Break-wise, you Counterblast a Revenger when he attacks
a vanguard and you have more rear-guards than your
opponent to gain 5k and a Crit. LGCSSG applies MOVING ON
Second non-LB skill is slightly more interesting. At
the start of the Main Phase, you can sack away a
rear-guard to kill an enemy rear-guard of the opponent's
choice. So it's basically 1:1-ing yourself at the start
of every turn.
I personally don't like him much. Not just because
Raging Form or hell, Dragruler basically outclass him in
effectiveness. It's because he basically doesn't DO
anything to actually screw the opponent in a way that
they can almost never recover. He has no capacity to
finish the opponent, and all he's really good for is a
field cleanup on a 1:1 basis. Nice trick, but field
consistency isn't enough to win anything anymore.
Is it any wonder this guy's so desperate?
Revenger, Desperate Dragon
Well, this is the least wanted RRR in the set. While
not a horribly bad card by any means, it's vastly
over-shadowed by Dragruler Phantom and others in the
"Vanguards that gain crits suck!"
Yes, Saikyo, we know that.
I am kind of inclined to agree with Saikyo on this
one. The Limit Break isn't too useful, though it can
make it harder to guard. And, no, you aren't always
going to slam into a Sentinel with these kinds of units
At the start of each of your main phases, you can
retire any Shadow Paladin rear guard to make your
opponent have to retire one of their rear guards. In
essence, it's a free one-for-one trade. One of yours for
one of theirs. Of course, the advantage to this is that
you can replace yours right away while your opponent
can't. However, the disadvantage of it is that your
opponent gets to choose what they retire.
So, overall, not horrid, at least the non-Limit Break
skill is interesting, a free retire every turn, and if
you ride it off the Break Ride, well, at least you can
retire what you got if you so choose to, like if you got
Skull Witch Nemian or something.
