Oh look at us dancing around all the hot Kagero cards we're blatantly NOT reviewing! In honor of the (probably) dead WarLycan36, we will review the Granblue stuff he would have wanted to look at. And we start with one of two Legion units, Pinot Noir. He legions with Pinot Blanc, and upon Legion, you mill the top 3 to call a unit from the drop zone. Normal skill is to sack a unit from the field when it attacks to give 5k until the end of the battle.

Well, I suppose it's one way to fill a field up, I guess. You use this, and it's one free unit. Maybe more if one were to combine this with something like Break Ride Nightmist for more units. Effectively, it's a replacement for Nightsnow, as an option. And the capacity to hit harder than Nightsnow after it wears off is nice too.
 
Pinot Noir has a simple enough ability, but isn't really looking to decisively end an opponent. It needs to be combined with something else to tank, which is almost equally viable admittedly, but I'm more of an aggro guy myself.
 
3/5

Yar, me mateys, it be talk like a pirate week on Pojo, so batten down the hatches, because we be kee-hauling some scruvy Granblue cards this week!
 
This week be dedicated to scallywag War Lycan for his love of all things deep and wet!
 
*Ahem*  Sorry, couldn't help myself.
 
Anyway, we're starting the week with a 500 year old sea captain, Pinot Noir.  Apparently Cray's version of Dracula is from France and he decided to become a pirate and he took his wife to perform Legion.  Well, okay, he's Pinot Blanc's master, but she acts like his wife.  Plus he doesn't like to show up unless the entire Granblue armada is called into action.
 
Speaking of Pinot Blanc, when you legion, you can CB1 to revive her from the drop zone to R.  Very efficient, especially since she doesn't need to retire any other units to revive herself.
 
There's no hint that Pinot Blanc is from either timeline, so, who knows?
 
Anyway, when Pinot Noir attacks, you can sac a rear guard to give him +5000, which is okay, combine it with Evil Shade and you get +15000 for the turn, which is nice.  Usually a good idea to sac away a Dancing Cutlass or tomorrow's card.
 
As a type 1 Legion, when you perform Legion, you mill three cards to the drop zone, then revive a unit from the drop zone.
 
Fun fact, when Granblue was slated to get a Legion, I joked that it would be "perform Legion, then mill four cards for some revival skill".  I was pretty close.
 
Over-all, this is a pretty nice Legion, and if you're running pure Legion for Granblue, you should be running this card.
 
I should mention that I am giving all the cards this week a rating based on how well they work in a Legion-based Granblue deck and I am not comparing them to other cards from other clans.  I try to do that to all the cards I review, compare them to other cards in the clan, since each clan does things differently.
 
Plus I am a bit biased towards Granblue, seeing as I run the deck, so, just a word of warning for the reviews this week, if you think they're too high, that's why.
 
...Yarr!

DID SOMEBODY SAY PIRATES?! 8D

Wwwwwwwwwwhat's up, Rogue Squad?! So I've been gone from the Internet for a long while, but I'll try to at least make a cameo from here and there,and what better week than this week? So for this week's Card of the Day, we're going to be taking a look at the newest cards of the pirate clan aka my favorite clan in the game: Granblue, and today, we're taking a look at...*sigh* the more upsetting of the two Legons.

Young Pirate Noble, Pinot Noir
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Granblue
Race: Vampire
[ACT](VC): Legion 20000 "Pirate Belle, Pinot Blanc" (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):[Put three cards from the top of your deck into the drop zone] When this unit Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one card from your drop zone, and call it to (RC).
[AUTO](VC):[Choose one of your rear-guards, and retire it] When this unit attacks a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of that battle.

...personally, this card is infinitely worse than the other undead Legion, Negrobolt, which we will look over later this week. As for Noir, let's break down on why this is nothing more than mediocre: the first thing is it's main Legion effect. WHEN YOU LEGION, you mill 3 cards to resurrect one unit. With the current Granblue lineup, almost every Grade 3 has a way to resurrect other units like Nightmist, Cocytus and its Reverse counterpart, Barbaros or even, dare I say, Negromarl. The other effect to Noir is that you sacrifice a rear guard to give your Vanguard +5000 power...whoop dee do...also, that effect is NOT a true Granblue style! Granblue sacrifice other units, yes, but not for power but to summon out other comrades from the grave. An effect like Noir's is suited for Shadow Paladins or Tachikaze...AND THEY DO THAT EFFECT EVEN BETTER THAN NOIR!!!

Noir is an embarrassment of a Legion, and should not be used seriously in your pirate deck...Pinot Blanc is passable though.

Rating: 1.5/5
Art: 3/5 (Why did THIS have to be the SP?!)
Next Time: We're reviewing a Trigger?!

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
