...This week, we discover the boss, who picked these
cards, is REALLY old. I mean come on, seriously. Having
said that, today's card still holds relevance. It's
Dragonic Overlord the End, the original Gamebreaker. On
hit, CB2 and Persona Blast to stand himself; a skill
that's so famous it hurts.
Actually still hurts now, actually. The End alone isn't
so hot now that other VGs can bring the same pressure as
he for bigger numbers, but it just so happens the X can
let the End reach those numbers also; 22k unboosted with
the threat of 2 VG attacks. As far as a fail-con ride to
the X goes, it isn't bad; pressure from turn 3 onward is
certainly welcome if you can't Stride yet and the
implied pressure may allow you to catch up in card
advantage before you ride the X. Late Game, he won't hit
the VG ever, so beware the vanilla afterwards, but
admittedly, that can be solved with Stride.
BTW, absurd number hitting and increased vanilla-isation
from several decks means his 13k body isn't worth your
A staple in the X and a neat fail con everywhere else.
Not much to say.
Looks like the Boss chose the cards this week.
Anyway, it's been awhile since we looked at some of
these, so, let's start off with one of the two strongest
pre-legion cards in the game, Overlord the End.
As you should know, The End gains +2000 if either
Dragonic Overlord from BT-01 or the Break Ride version
is in the Soul and he Legions with The X for more
naughtiness. Hit anything, CB2, persona blast to
Such a powerful card that when it was released in
America, people from VMundi were screaming about how
over-powered it was and demanding that the Cross-Ride
defense get nerfed so it didn't exist for anyone outside
Even with the advent of Break-Rides and Limit Break
puu-puu Combo platter skills, the End was still tearing
things up everywhere. And, yes, I know that
Dragonic Descendant was the one that dethroned The End
for a long time, but Kagero has better support than
Narukami does, even if they have some awesome Break
And considering that all Overlords have a Stride coming
out in Fighter's Collection 2015 this year, well, yeah,
this card is going to stay near the top of being awesome
for a long, long time. Even if The Re-Birth and
The Great temporarily over-took it for some time.
