Super Ancient Dragon, Pearly Titan-

Stride (Released when both players' vanguards are grade 3 or greater!)-Stride Step-[Choose one or more cards with the sum of their grades being 3 or greater from your hand, and discard them] Stride this card on your (VC) from face down.
[AUTO]:When this unit placed on (VC), if you have a heart card with "Ancient Dragon" in its card name, choose one of each player's rear-guards, retire them, and increase this unit's [Power] by the sum of the original [Power] of the units retired with this effect until end of turn. Then, if the [Power] increased with this effect is 20000 or more, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of turn.
Not the best, but since I can't say a lot that's
interesting about the others (apart from the ones I
picked this week) let's go with the more interesting of
the lot. Pearly Titan, on Stride, retires a rear-guard
on both sides, then gains power equal to the total power
of the units retired. If you gain 20k power this way, he
also gains +1 critical. But you need an Ancient Dragon
heart to do any of this.
It's nice, but his power requirements are too steep to
get the most mileage out of him. Assuming you want to
combine this with units that revive upon getting eaten
such as Iguanocorg, you're never going to gain enough
power to actually gain a critical, so it basically
becomes a +1 for a CB1 cost with a bit of redundant
power. In fact, the only normal way to use him at max
capacity is to retire an 11k base rear-guard on the
opponent's side (so a spare Grade 3) and Tyrannobite, a
9k Grade 2. Otherwise, it's working out as a 1:1 for you
with an on-hit effect, which would probably work out
better than something like Efnysein, but I'm still not
sold entirely on it.
Just hope the next pack with Tachikaze in it is a bit
Super Ancient Dragon, Pearly Titan
So, Ancient Dragon stride, huh? When you place on
V, you retire one of your rear guards and one of your
opponents rear guards to increase the power of this by
the combined power of the retired units and if you
increase by 20000 or more, it gets +1 critical.
Easy enough to do, retire a Grade 3 and a Grade 2, that
should, generally speaking, be 20000 power. If you
can't get the +1 critical, it's always nice to retire
troublesome rear guards, like Commander Laurel, starters
that haven't been used yet, cards like Dorint or Bruno
which make rear guard lines very hard to guard against.
Over-all, fairly simple and straight forward, which is
Also, in a Tag Fight, you retire one of yours, your
partners and both of your opponent's rear guards, making
getting to 20000 stupidly easy.
Plus Ancient Dragons do nothing but gain skills when
retired from the field, so, that's always nice.
Bottom line, use it if you're running Ancient Dragons.
