Here's something a little more meaningful than yesterday's card. This card, on attacking the vanguard, lets you CB2 to gain a skill: if the attack hits, you draw a card for every heart. But if a Metalborg is your heart, you also get to seal G1 or above guard from the hand.
 
That's better. PG seal and a nice meaty power, not to mention Triple Drive, makes him the perfect partner to combine with Commander Laurel without needing a lot of external setup beforehand. He also requires a lot of Grade 0s and intercepts on the opponent's part, so even if you don't +2 the first time, the guard eating softens up guard so your rear-guards can punch through.
 
A bit slow to take off for maximum efficiency but this really falls under the Big Bang Knuckle Turbo clause in that you shouldn't let Legion dictate that you wait if you need the plus, and the potential early Laurel abuse. He's good, straight out.
 
3.5/5

Sorry about yesterday, folks, didn't get the list to review for this week until late.
 
Anyway, today's card is Hyper Metalborg, Heavyduke
 
His skill...  Well, more reason to keep using Black Boy, I think.  Off-sets the cost of superior Legioning with Black Boy easily, though it is Counter-Blast heavy if you do this.  Probably better to not do it, but on the other hand...  Yeah, basically, do it if you want to and if you can unflip the damage, don't do it otherwise.
 
Anyway, CB2 on attack to draw a card for each unit in the heart, and if you have a Metalborg Heart, he turns into another Glory clone.
 
...Another Glory Clone?  Sheesh.  This is getting annoying, especially since Metalborgs only have one good Legion with the same skill.
 
So, in effect, this is Sin+Ur Buster Legion the Stride.
 
...Yeah, all that can be said...
 
Commander Laurel NEEDS to get limited, I think.
