Since Academy of Divas is still over the horizon, let's get some more Fighter's Collection out of the way. (I'm probably going to regret this during the September drought of bugger all getting released but...)
 
So let's start with Epoch-maker Dragon. On hitting the Vanguard, you bind a rear-guard and call a Grade 3 from the deck in its place. It then returns to the deck at the end of the turn and the bound unit returns.
 
RULING: If you're one of those people who plays mixed and you call Pellinore with this skill, even if Pellinore moves to the VG circle via the skill, it still bounces back to the deck at the end of the turn. In that case, one card in your soul becomes your new Vanguard. If you have no soul, you auto-lose the game.
 
But since you're probably not one of those people, what does it do? Well, needing to hit isn't a big point in its favour since Triple Drive and lots of Critical Triggers is enough motive to drop a PG in the face, but when it does hit, it's basically one more attack, albeit a weak one. It's also a way to use something on-call like Glimmer Breath twice in a turn, calling the same unit twice.
 
When the field doesn't merit a Fate Rider or the opponent hasn't got enough to justify a Chronoscommand, this is the go-to first Stride, usually. Honestly though, you can probably just not run this altogether and still be fine. It's not THAT important.
 
2.5/5

Hey everyone, what's up?  After the very short week last week, we're back to five cards this week.  And, THANK GOODNESS!  I don't know about any of you, but last week was WAY too hot for my liking around here.  Heatwave broke up and now it's comfortable.
 
When Epoch-maker hits the Vanguard, bind one of your rear-guards and superior call a Grade 3 from the deck, then put the Grade 3 at the bottom of the deck and call one of your binded units to R, huh?
 
So...  Who wants to tell Murakumo that their abilities are being copied now?
 
It's not bad, but, I don't really think there's much room for Epoch-maker for Gear Chronicles.  Just too many strides to choose from.
 
Plus, if you wanted a 4th possible attack, just run stand triggers, at least you can power-up your rear-guard line by 5000 that way.
