If WarLycan36 didn't turn up this week: He will be
missed. Not by me, but he will be missed.
If WarLycan36 did turn up this week: HOLY CRAP WHERE DID
YOU COME FROM
Last card of the week is the second of the Granblue
Legion units, Negrobolt. He legions with Dragon Undead,
Ghoul Dragon, and for that, whenever he attacks, you
Counterblast 1 to retire a rear-guard, and swap it with
a new one. Oh yeah, and he gains 3k on attack, as long
as you have another unit in the centre.
...I can't really get into it. Most likely because it's
bland, not because it's BAD. At first glance, the
capacity to not do much except get another attack with
no new power on top sounds dull, but it's actually not a
bad partner for Nightmist. If you happen to not have
enough Samurai Spirits to swap into your revived Sea
Strolling Banshees before they die again, this card can
sack them away and get a new unit back on a 1:1 basis
(efficient enough) and possibly chain skills on top of
this (swapping Banshee for Banshee is permitted, take
Without it however, riding it first is a somewhat poor
fail condition. But if the method's effective enough, go
ahead. Just don't expect me to use something I can't say
is inherently stable.
Witch Doctor of the Dead Sea, Negrobolt
And finally, the card that both Saikyo and WarLycan have
been waiting on, the Type 2 Legion of Granblue,
...Seriously... Well, I suppose it can mean Black
Bolt, but still, Bushi, kind of pushing it!
Anyway, onto the review of Vanguard's version of Cthulhu.
For one thing, I'm glad this is a rare, even if there's
no SP version, because that makes the deck even cheaper.
And for another thing, this is NOT a set-up card in the
slightest. Well, it CAN be, but it's better used
as a finisher instead of a set-up unit like Noir is.
Point of fact, I do like set-up units like Fennel, Noir
and Fianna, because, well, going for the kill shot all
the time, unless you're using CEO Yggy or something like
her, doesn't guarantee you a win at all. It's best
to set yourself up for the best field possible and
weaken your opponent's position before going for the
Then again, I'm an anomaly when it comes to playing
Vanguard at times, so you can ignore that if you want
This is a finisher card, you're supposed to bring it out
when you've got a good position in play and can win
either that turn or the next one.
Anyway, when this has a unit in the same column as it,
it gets +3000 when attacking, so a Deadly Spirit makes
the Legion attack 30K. That Legion ability
though... Yum! When you attack, you CB1, sac
a rear guard, then revive a unit from your drop zone
into play. Need a 4th attack? Done.
Only have one booster for your rear guards? Fine,
just sac it and move it to the other column. Want
more cards in hand? Well, if you have a Dancing
Cutlass or Sea Strolling Banshee in the drop, you can
sac a rear guard and call them out. And, it should
be noted, that if you do call them to R, their effects
activate BEFORE you twin drive.
If you're running this and not using pure Legion, run it
with Cocytus R or Nightmist and hope you get Brutal
Shade and one of the Limit Break units before you ride
this one out.
And, to be honest, that's not really that good.
Maybe it works better than I think it does, but I'm not
certain. The only Legion + Break Ride I've seen to
work really well is Spike Brothers, but that's an
all-or-nothing deck anyway. ...Well, there *IS* one
more, but that's because I'm an anomaly and most people
don't run it anyway.
It's kind of why Infinite Zero Dragon will work with
Link Joker Legions, but it's not too feasible at times.
Again, I'm not certain that Necrobolt and Nightmist/Cocytus
R is a good combo, but if you can make it work, all the
more power to you.
For me, I'm running pure Legion Granblue, sorry Warlycan.
Argh, I made comparisons between units of one clan to
another. I hate that, even if I think it was
accurate. Sorry everyone, I'll try to not do that
in the future.
Again, as I said, comparing one clan to another isn't
fair since each clan has their own way of doing things.
But, hey, despite everything else, this is a solid boss
for Granblue. Not sure if its better than
Nightsnow with Limit Breaks. But it is a must-run
card for Granblue if you're not using Nightsnow.
I think... Oh yeah, the mate, well, if you revive
the mate from the drop zone, it gets an ability to
retire an opponent's rear guard if it hits the vanguard
...Yeah, that's not that great, nice for some pressure,
but not that great. Pinot Blanc is better for
Legion Rating: 4/5
See you next week, I'm pretty sure we're covering Kagero
next week, just depends on the order.
What's up, Rogue Squad?! To conclude my week, we're
going to look at the best card(s) that Granblue got came
out of Blazing Perdition:
Witch Doctor of the Dead Sea, Negrobolt
[ACT](VC): Legion 20000 "Dragon Undead, Ghoul 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
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose one of your
rear-guards, and retire it] When this unit attacks a
vanguard, if this unit is Legion, you may pay the cost.
If you do, choose one card from your drop zone, and call
it to (RC).
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, if you
have another unit in the center column, this unit gets
[Power]+3000 until end of that battle.
...as of right now, this with Cocytus R and Brutal
Shade is my current Granblue build, and boy, did I need
Negrobolt now more than ever! Negrobolt's Legion effect
is definitely the superior of the two (the other being
Noir) as you Counterblast 1 and sacrifice a unit to
resurrect another unit from your Drop Zone. This is
pretty awesome as it essentially gives Granblue a sure
fire fourth attack, and combining this with the Mate,
Ghoul Dragon, adds a lot more needed pressure that the
clan was lacking. Also, pulling off Negrobolt's point
boost is easier and less costly as Noir, so there's that
Overall, if you want to Legion, use Negrobolt...you
won't regret it.
Art: 5/5 (Why couldn't THIS be the holo?!)
Next Time: Hell if I know. XD
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
