How cleverly named. Can’t abuse his personal Critical Trigger in a Luard deck. Anyway, you gain a new booster(s) every time he hits, or the opponent throws a Perfect Guard or G Guardian to the board. Generally, he has more bite the more G-Units you have, but the main problem is this: as an early Stride, you have better options because he’s basically only a +1 to you, admittedly Counterblast free. In Luard it’s Aurageyser Doomed with Belial Owl abuse. In Claret, you have even something as basic as Carnivore Dragon, unless your field is seriously wanting. He has utility to chain attacks Late Game by calling over columns that finished attacking, but both Luard and Claret can use Spectral Blaster Diablo with few penalties, and he’s a more functional finisher.

Nice two-of for tech but there’s better stuff out there.



So that’s where Claret’s been hiding his army. Helheim makes guarding a dicey decision against it, since any attacks guarded with special guards will give you free calls. It does eat up space in an already packed G-zone, but 2-3 copies for pressure isn’t bad. You can always flip the unused ones for Spectral Diablo
