Brave Stride Seeker, Cherin
Jan. 7, 2015
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (RC), if your vanguard is Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose another of your units, until end of turn, that unit and this unit get [Power]+4000.
Ratings are based
on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.
Oh that explains why I
couldn't remember this card. It's boring. Cherin can
grant itself and one other unit 4k upon hitting the
field for CB1. As long as the vanguard's in Legion,
Sounds nice, but there's a
problem. Apart from encroaching on the Grade 2 lineup,
in order to get the most out of the skill you'd have to
arrange both his column AND the other unit's column to
be 17k in order to make it 21k and thus force more
guard. That's pretty much impossible with Cherin's own
column unless he specifically is called alongside
Izbuzzard and the other is restricted to having the
difference be made up by Cerdic and any spare Grade 3s
you have. Most likely anything not called Thing Saver
because spares are usually in the deck.
Cherin competes with space
for Blaster Blade, Gildas and Cerdic already. He's got
nowhere to be run apart from very hipster Seekers.
Brave Stride Seeker, Cherin
Here we have the mate of Purgation Breath Dragon.
Just to save time, Purgation Breath Dragon has Alfred's
non-legion ability, especial counter blast 2 to search
out a Seeker to the field. At least you can unflip
a damage if you have a bigger field than your opponent
does. But, that's all it does and it's not really
good, plus, unlike Alfred, Purgation Breath has to be in
Cherin (Celyn) here is much, much better. When
placed on R, if your vanguard is in Legion, you can CB 1
to choose one of your units and that unit *AND* Cherin
both get +4000.
In terms of utility, this is 2nd only to Blaster Blade
Seeker in a Seeker deck. Make the rear guards a
bit bigger and harder to guard, laugh as your opponent
realizes that the little boost that Cherin gives makes a
unit too hard to guard against. Especially if you
combine it with Aremil or Light Blaze Dragon, you'll
quickly find that you don't need a restander if you're
smashing through your opponent's guard with ease.
Course, you can choose your vanguard, but, in the
Legion-era, that's not needed nearly as much as it used
Cherin is such a good card in the respects of how easy
it is to get his effect off. But other than that he is
kind of bleh, simply because in a Seeker deck counter
blasts are valuable and there are other ways to give
power to other units then him. Though I feel he has a
place in some Seeker decks but not in Thing Savor or
This card was printed as a rare and that is where it
belongs, so value will be less than $1.00. That is all
for this one!!!
