Abominable One, Gilles de Rais
July 8, 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.
[ACT](VC)[1/Turn]:[Choose a face down card named "Abominable One, Gilles de Rais" from your G zone, and turn it face up] If the number of cards in your soul is ten or more, this unit gets [Power]+10000 until end of turn. Then, if the number of cards in your soul is fifteen or more, until end of turn, this unit gets "[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, until end of that battle, your opponent cannot call grade 1 or greater cards from hand to (GC).". If the number of face up cards in your G zone is two or more, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of turn.
Okay, yeah, that's MUCH better. Gilles de Rais has a
much more fun ability. As an ACT G Persona Blast, if you
have 10 soul, he gains 10k power. 15, and he also gets
to seal Grade 1 and above guard from the hand when he
attacks. And if you have 2 or more face-up G-Units, he
gains an extra Critical too.
THAT is something worth the investment: a meatier CEO
Yggdrasil with 3 Drive Checks to Crit the opponent to
death. Problem is, he's a bit unfeasible in regards to
getting the 15 you need except in a very dedicated
build. Astaroth in Amons would need to use its second
skill a few times in addition to its own Amon support to
use, which compared to something like G-Dark Irregulars
which doesn't need to waste as much time is a bit slow
for my tastes. In fact, any Dark Irregulars needing
Legion will find themselves a bit slow. Admittedly you
can jump to Gilles de Rais and just take the PG seal
without the extra Critical but that sort of misses the
point unless the opponent's on like 5 damage or
something for an assured win, short of a Heal Trigger.
Gilles de Rais is worth it though. Dedicate the build to
him and you won't go wrong, since the support they got
this booster is really good.
One who is Abhorrent, Gilles de Rais
Caster? Why are you here? And why are you a
vampire? Okay, so the PSP game said you were
possessed by a demon, doesn't mean you have to be a
demon. ...Then again, you did summon that giant blob
monster thing to attack Tokyo.
Oh, what? Sorry, must have gotten this guy
confused with Fate/Zero and Jeanne D'Arc (PSP game).
After all, he has the same name as the legendary child
This is a semi-SSS, since it can work for the first
stride and no need for counter blasts, but you want it
as your second stride, seeing as it gets +1 crit when
Vanguards that gain crits suck, let's go to... Oh,
wait, this one...
Oh sure, just 10 cards in soul and it gets +10000 power.
Okay, cool, at this point it's basically Phantom Blaster
"Diablo". At 15+ cards it...
SERIOUSLY?! Bushiroad, stop that! Stop
making Glory clones!
Urgh, so annoying to deal with. No wonder so many
clans are getting unique ways to guard these days.
Anyway, use Dark Irregulars? Use this, next!
