My locals spam this guy to no fucking end. Scourge Point Dragon's ability activates when a unit is called from the deck, powering up that unit and Scourge Point by 5k until end of the turn.
 
Of course for maximum output, you're using this in Gurguit decks since that's the one most likely to chain calls every turn. Column games are as good as any I suppose, which would certainly be useful if Gold Paladin had any way to follow it up with a worse finisher afterwards. But instead they got fucking Spearcross Dragon. So unless you hit a Fhamgal and start a chain that way, it's not something to go out your way to exclusively rely on, since Gurguit and Pwyll can net about 2? So two columns gain 5k while Scourge Point remains at PG or NG territory anyway. Best that can be said is that column forming is at least probably easier than Pretty Cat.
 
Basically, don't take the whole locals spamming this guy thing as an indication of skill. I am fully aware they don't know that much.

More of the "My name is Hugh Mann and I'm a Human" card names.  Because that makes a lot of sense!
 
And this one doesn't even have a built-in ability to make its ability work!  For crying out loud!  I mean, at least Liberators have Aglovale, which would make this work, but COME ON!  It's really bad when something has the potential to be good needs an outside source, urgh.
 
At least it works well with Gurguit.  ...And that's about it?
 
I like my strides to do something without needing extra help to do it, thank you very much.

Today's card is GP's generic Stride from FC, Scourge Point Dragon. Whenever an RG is called from the deck, this card and the called card get +5k until end of turn. 
 
Pretty good. Because of this card there's actually a use of running so many superior callers- to be able to scale for 21k+ columns. An example would be call a Pwyll with Gurguit, call a Fahmgal or something with Pwyll, and call something else. This will end up decently powerful with enough cards chained. There are numerous weaknesses to this strategy though. While it's power gain decent, it's not on the level of finishing consistency of other Strides like Lambros or Conquest, due to needing certain units. It's also only usable in Gurguit because the other GP G3s don't have as many superior callers. 
 
A decent card, but held back the lack of a good follow-up as well as few options in its own clan which can utilize it. 
 
Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 2/5 The pose looks somewhat awkward to me, like the head is too small or the feet are too big.
Card Design: 4/5 A nice, offensive way to use superior calling is good design.
