Perdition Dragon, Pain Laser Dragon -
Feb. 19, 2015
[ACT](VC): Legion20000 "Perdition Dragon, Menace Laser Dragon" (If your opponent's vanguard is grade 3 or greater, this unit may return four cards from your drop zone into your deck once, search your deck for the specified card, and Legion)
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire all of your opponent's rear-guards in the same column as that unit.
[AUTO](VC):[Soul Blast (1)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of battle.
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 - Horrible 3 - Average. 5 - Awesome
If you really hate using Dragonic Neoflame for obvious
reasons, then this is the backup plan. Or maybe the
go-to plan for Perdition Dragons lacking The Great. Pain
Laser Dragon legions with Menace Laser Dragon, and upon
doing so, you Counterblast 1 to pick a unit and retire
all units in the same column. Normal skill is to
Soulblast 1 on attack to give itself 3k until end of
Cost's decent enough. I won't say no to a +2 for CB1,
certainly. I'd consider myself lucky to CB1 for a +1 so
this is actually pretty cheap. Obviously that's where it
stops and will never go further than this afterwards,
but at least unlike Vortex Dragonewt, you know what's
going to happen.
Problem is, I wouldn't say The Great's bad enough to not
replace Pain Laser. The Great's most likely the priority
ride and as fail-con aces go, I'd say Dragonewt actually
would work out as a little cheaper in terms of cost and
can at least repeat itself if the need arises.
Pain Laser isn't horrible though. If you can't be arsed
to fork out for Dragonewt, this isn't a bad cheaper
Perdition Dragon, Pain Laser Dragon
Well, this is one I think that should have been a RR,
not a RRR for the English release. It made more
sense in the Japanese version, seeing as there was only
this and Vortex Dragonewt.
Anyway, Pain Laser legions with Menace Laser, which, is
a really good unit. It's a new Berserk Dragon.
A bit more limited and linear though, but when you call
Menace Laser to R, if you have a Perdition Vanguard, CB1
to retire any unit that's straight across from it.
Kind of like Tejas being able to attack boosters that
are right in front of it, but Menace Laser kills things
right in front of it.
In fact, most of the Perditions work in this regard.
They do a LOT of rear-guard retiring, however, it's
generally what's in a straight line in front of them,
they don't kill flexibly like Berserk Dragon or Dragonic
Anyway, back to Pain Laser Dragon here, a type-1 Legion
that can SB1 to gain 3000 power when attacking the
Vanguard. Which is nice, since it sets up the drop
zone easier than most Legions do. When you Legion
with this guy, CB1 and retire an entire line of rear
guards your opponent has. That, of course,
includes your opponent's Vanguard's booster, but that's
a bit of a waste of the skill, I think.
Some people might not think that's such a good thing,
but then, remember the following cards exist in various
Limit Break Enablers
Dimensional Robo, Goyusha
Lizard Soldier, Fargo
Star-vader, Volt Line
Oh, hey, getting rid of those pets, plus more, is never
a bad thing, I think.
If not for tomorrow's card, this would be a solid #2
card in Perditions. Tomorrow's card though...
