So we're continuing with THE RECKLESS RAMPAGE with a
double bill on Friday. And starting us off is
Tachikaze's Stride bearer, Gaia Emperor. He has the
Engorge skill, which eats one or more rear-guards on
attack. And once he's Engorged and GB2 is live, he gains
5k + 1 Critical. And for his Stride skill, CB1 to call
up to two from the hand, then choose up to two
rear-guards, and then they gain a skill: if they get
retired, they get called back to rear-guard.
GB2? Not interesting, moving on. It's the Stride skill
you want: packing the Altmile clause of not needing the
perfect field right away is a big plus. It's there to
allow chain attacks for a turn with Engorge, sacking off
units that attacked and getting them back, best combined
with something with punch like Gluttony Dogma.
One downside is that a deck revolving around Gaia
Emperor has no actually good fail-con in case you cannot
draw or search him, but then when has that ever stopped
Messiahs. Actually, scratch that. The G Support isn't as
good as Messiahs owing to a lack of maintainable hard
advantage without Gaia Emperor to get it all back. At
least Amnesty has cards like Neutron Star and Sacrifice
Not to say this is bad. In fact, when ridden, he
basically wrecks. Or REX? See what I...nah, I know. It
Emperor Dragon, Gaia Emperor
Department of Redundancy is Redundant.
Anyway, Gaia Emperor goes "OM NOM NOM NOM!" when he
attacks, if he does so, at GB2, he gets the standard
+5K/+1 crit power boosts.
As the Break Stride ability, he gets to pull an Altmile,
save that there's also two units you have in play could
easily die and then they come back to play.
Add in any abilities that work on retire for Tachikaze
and this is a nice advantage engine going for just one
I do think that the Legion decks are better, but not so
much so that if you don't have the Legion Tachikaze
stuff yet that you should run out and pour all your
money into it. This works pretty good for what it
There's plenty of combos with this card. The five
or so Tachikaze players out there know exactly what I'm
FYI, that was sarcasm. Gotta make sure not to offend
anyone in this day and age since everything is offensive
to everyone it seems like.
