Chronofang Tiger
- #G-BT07/010EN

Date Reviewed: June 29, 2016

[CONT](VC) Generation Break 2:While you are paying the cost for Stride, you may have the cards you discard from hand get grade +3. If you do, bind those cards face up. [AUTO]:[Choose a card from your hand, and bind it face up] When this unit is placed on (VC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards. Your opponent returns that unit to his or her deck, searches his or her deck for up to one card with grade -2 than that unit, calls it to (RC), and shuffles his or her deck. (Your opponent can choose not to find a card if there is none he or she wishes to call)

What's the deal with the Tiger vs Dragon motif. Anyway, Chronofang Tiger. His GB2 skill allows every card in your hand to gain +3 Grade for Stride fuel. However, should you discard a card whose Grade increased with this skill, the dicarded card is sent to the bind zone instead. His On-ride skill binds a card from the hand as a cost. Then you choose an enemy rear-guard, the opponent sends it to the deck, calls a unit from the deck 2 Grades lower than that unit, and shuffles the deck.
 
His on ride skill isn't particularly impressive, but given it's Counterblast free, I don't expect it to be good. You're basically either going 1:1 by sniping a booster, or you're turning a Grade 2 into a weak booster (which I don't recommend given the number of triggers with skills kicking about).
You're mostly going to be using him for the second skill, which ensures basically no bad hand situations ever. Something quick like Warp Drive Dragon can put him up to GB2 quickly enough, and after that, his bind skill can help fuel Bind-Time Dragon, who's supposed to be the be-all end all result...unless you still have Ragnaclock or something.
 
Not really impressive compared to Chronojet for now, but you know he'll get support later to make him amazing. Get some because he should age decently well.

Because Blaster Dark Diablo wasn't going to be the only stride boss that could gurantee a Stride turn. But unlike Diablo, on trigger simply by itself is good enough to stride with.

Once you hit Gen Break 2, you want to stride with a grade 2 or less that has a function while in the bind zone, but naturally just ditch whatever in a pinch.

His on-ride is nice, since you basically spin a Grade 1 or 0 and they don't get it back, due to their not being negative grades in the game (yet). Using Chronofang's effect on a Grade 2 isn't the best, because there are a healthy amount of triggers they could call to set up another play, even if it's just any Stride Boss's crit, like Heart Thump Worker.

In the end though, Chronofang's potency is wholly attached to whatever Strides are available to him. He's gonna need a bit more than Bind Time Dragon, but with the way Bushiroad designs support, it's very likely Chronofang (or the Gear Beast race) is gonna be handed silly support in the future. For the optimists and the curious, grab your Chronofangs now and sit on them.

3/5
