Blue Storm Marshall Dragon, Admiral Maelstrom
July 23, 2015
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](VC)[1/Turn]:[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card from your G zone, and turn it face up] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, if it is the fourth battle of that turn or more, and you have a heart card with "Maelstrom" in its card name, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card, choose three of your opponent's rear-guards, your opponent chooses one from them for each face up card named "Blue Storm Marshal Dragon, Admiral Maelstrom" in your G zone, and retires them.
Again, fell under the 'not GREAT, but at least you can
spend a little while explaining why' category. Admiral
Maelstrom needs a Maelstrom heart, and as your reward,
when his attack hits and it was the 4th or more battle,
G Persona Blast, draw a card, then pick 3 opposing
rear-guards, then for every face-up Admiral Maelstrom
face-up in the G-Zone, the opponent must choose that
many to retire.
I guess the biggest real redeeming feature is that none
of the Maelstrom cards requires that you use a pure
Blue Storm build to function so the G Support with
Maelstrom units as the Grade 3s would work in this
instance. In fact, I actively advise doing exactly that:
the Blue Storm support hasn't really got anything that
adds any insurance should the VG not hit, and the G
Support with a decently arranged field can leave a
column or perhaps even two units left to pass triggers
to, whereas Blue Storms usually require whiffing at
least 1 attack just to rack up battle count while paying
the cost for it; see Spiros for example.
Still, I'm not a fan of the fact it needs to hit in
order to work properly: you need to read the opposing
hand and guess if you'll get hit with a PG to the face
or not. But I guess it's no harder than Tidal Bore
Dragon and provides a decent enough reward if you
actually do succeed.
I wouldn't go nuts trying to make this your main
priority Aqua Force build but 4 of this + 4 Lambrose is
functional enough for the deck.
Blue Storm Marshal Dragon, Admiral Maelstrom
So, we have a Maelstrom stride now. Whee!
Obviously need a Maelstrom in the heart, it doesn't have
the Glory skill, instead it has the regular and reverse
Maelstrom skills of being able to retire rear guards.
On hitting a Vanguard, you CB1 and flip a card face up,
the first one you probably want to be another copy of
the Admiral here, if it's the 4th attack or more in a
turn, choose up to three of your opponent's rear guards
and your opponent retires one for each face-up Admiral
in your G-zone. Also, you draw a card.
It's not bad at all, a nice fall-back if you've used up
all your Lambros and you're still using a Maelstrom Aqua
If you're running Maelstrom Aqua Force, use this as your
back-up Stride to Lambros.
