And then there's this. I actually still have my
Descendant deck from 2014, so hooray nostalgia, I guess.
Descendant "Zillion" has an ACT skill, which gives him a
new ability for a G Persona Blast, as long as the
heart's Descendant. After he finishes attacking a
vanguard, if the attack did not hit, once per turn you
can Counterblast 1 and Soulblast 2 and pitch 3 cards
from the hand to stand him and take one Drive Check
So at least he allows you to pitch anything and not just
Eradicators, unlike base Descendant. The problem is I
don't see how this makes him more appealing than, say,
something like the Ace. A re-standing Vanguard ought to
be serving as both a catch-up tool for damage gap and/or
as a finisher. Because this has no purpose other than
for use in Late Game, he is useable ONLY as a finisher.
Say what you will, but on 4 damage, even if a Critical
wasn't scored, it's still 1 damage before your re-stand
with the Ace, amirite?
Doesn't help that the Eradicators are sorely lacking in
the good control department compared to something like
Vanquisher. Get if Magia makes you unhappy so you can
use this in conjunction with Conquest but overall, you
will prefer Conquest.
[True Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant "Zillion"]
Cue all the people whining about Zillion not having a
critical. We can't get everything, I suppose. So, unlike
G3 Descendant, Zillion has a soulblast cost as well,
meant to be mitigated by the Eradicators support that
came out in set 9, as well as the pre-existing Cho-Ou.
Zillion, just like G3 Descendant, is a "my opponent is
at 4-5 damage" Stride. If your opponent is at 3 damage
or below, they'll just take their chances and hope you
don't check 2 critical triggers. And naturally, sacking
triggers isn't a guarantee.
Problem is, Zillion has two flaws that has even a
Narukami enthusiast like me hesitating to dust off the
old Eradicator deck. One: even though can be a first
Stride, he's not really effective at that role, unless
you checked criticals and pushed your opponent to 4-5
damage before striding into Zillion. Two: he's heart
restricted to Descendant. Descendant did not receive the
same toolboxing options Raging Form did, making both
this stride and the Descendant-specific support
cumbersome to include in an Eradicator build. (Run the
superior ride chain, be my guest. I'll just be
not-so-silently laughing to myself whenever I see that
A for effort, I guess. Grab Zillion if you love Oldguard.
