Here we go, something a little meatier in substance. Dragonic Blademaster is our Stride vessel a la Chronojet and similar. On Stride, you Counterbast 1 to retire an enemy rear-guard, and as his Generation Break 2 skill? 5k and a Critical during your turn, and you have more rear-guards than the opponent.
 
Generation Break? Too slow, and doesn't even have anything decent to make it not as slow as a LB-based Crit gaining skill. Not even Root Flare can give us anything meaningful beyond 2 face-up G-units. However, it's the second skill you want him for, and to be honest, it isn't really all that bad. A tad ordinary, but the capacity to retire anything problematic basically forever is always appreciated.
 
I use him as by backup in my own The X build simply because of synergy with Stride. I guess he could possibly swing an entire deck alone, but you'd have to be VERY dedicated to that train of thought.

So, of course Kagero would join the likes of Royal Paladins, Gear Chronicles, Neo Nectars and Oracles and get a "Break Stride" unit.
 
Apparently Blademaster here was the leader of an advance invasion force and nearly managed to conquer the United Sanctuary before Gablade was brought forth in time and stopped him.
 
Pretty neat.
 
Anyway, when you Stride and this guy's in the Heart, you CB1 to retire any of your opponent's rear guards.
 
Simple, quick and clean for taking out rear guards.  Nice.  Combined with the Kagero Strides that love to just blow up rear guards, this is a very solid boss for Kagero going forward.
 
...Ooooor at least it WOULD have been, had The X and The Great not existed.
 
Sorry, Blademaster, you're much like many Genesis bosses, over-shadowed by your far superior options.  While Blademaster is decently okay, it's just so far out-classed by the two Overlord Legions that it's not funny.  Plus Menace+Pain Laser and Vortex Dragonnewt for Perditions is better too.
