Should have ended on Tetra-boil, since this isn't really as exciting. Presumeably Thava's new fail-con G3, this has a VG only GB1 skill of giving everything in the front row AND on your Guardian Circle Resist (fuck you Daikaiser). And when ridden, it chooses a unit and gives it a Wave 3 skill: upon attacking and if it's the third battle or more, look at the top 5 cards of your deck, add a Grade 3 among them to your hand, then shuffle the deck.
 
First skill is the reason I've decided to change my main deck to Brawlers.
 
Second skill is only really good if you go second and can therefore Stride first, into Lambros most likely. Going first, only one shot at the search kind of hurts, but at least it's free. If you go second though, you can have Magnum Assault preferably attack third, then fourth to get 2 searches, then Lambros can grant Magnum a THIRD search.
 
...Just a tip from me. It assumes you can draw Magnum and keep Magnum alive that long, so don't count on this by any stretch.
 
Otherwise, it's sort of meh, but at least it's better than Max as a fail-con.
 
3/5

Final card of the week is Skyros, who, at GB1, gives everything in the front row and GC resist.  So, no worrying about pesky stun, retire, or lock that doesn't hit everything, which is nice.
 
When placed on V, select one of your units, when that unit is the third wave or more and attacks the Vanguard, you can look at the top five cards and look for a grade three among them and add it to your hand, then shuffle your deck.
 
So, it's on-call skill is the skill that Saikyo hates for starters, though it's not bad if it's the first Grade 3 you ride and you can't seem to get any others by the time you ride this.
 
Plus, as a bonus, it works before the Stride step, so it has that going for it, which is nice.
 
Over-all, it's not bad, but there are better Grade 3s for Aqua Force.  Use this only if you're running a budget deck and can't get the others.
 
Rating: 2.5/5
 
See you next week, folks, we're doing our top 10 new cards of the year.  Let's see which ones made it this year.
