And then we ran out of Gold Paladin. Anyway, Spinocommando here. His Limit Break springs when your turn ends, and you choose to retire a rear-guard as a cost. You then ride a Grade 3 in your soul, and then Spinocommando himself returns from the soul to yuor hand, and then you draw a card. And when ridden, it gains a skill: you Counterblast an Ancient Dragon if one of your own rear-guard Ancient Dragons gets retired, and then you can revive it.
 
Obviously supposed to be combined with the older card Spinodriver for maximum output. But all in all, I'm not entirely fussed. Spino Driver only exists for a bit of hard advantage for a Counterblast cost and the extra 10k and Critical late in the game is meaningless, as you should know. Being still predictably costed, the deck will eventually run dry on available damage and is pretty lacking in tricks overall.
 
Would have been pretty nice about three years ago. Now it's just unneeded.

Looks like there's three more cards that were found for the week, yay.
 
A limit break?  In the G-era?  Well, let's see, what does...  Oh...
 
Hooray, more Infinite Break Ride tricks!
 
Anyway, when you ride this, Especial Counter-Blast 1, whenever an Ancient Dragon dies this turn, it's returned to the battlefield if you pay the cost.
 
Not bad.  So what's the Limit Break do?
 
Retire a rear-guard, re-ride a Grade 3 from your soul at the end of the turn, put this back into your hand and draw a card.
 
Hooray card advantage.
 
More cards is good, helps you dig for more card advantage.  Can't complain about that.
