What's up, you guys?! It's Wednesday, and time to get
on with our COTD hump day...with NO camels in sight!
Amber Dragon, Dusk
Race: Flame Dragon
[CONT](VC):If you have a card named "Amber Dragon,
Daylight" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+1000.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit
gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
...so we a look at the Amber Dragon series today,
huh? So the Amber Dragons are from Set 4, which makes
them part of the Gen 2 Ride Chain series where if you
hit the first part, you automatically gain the next
part. As a Ride Chain, it's not the best that's out
there, but with Dauntless Drive Dragon about to come out
in 2-3 days, it's definitely breathing in some much
needed life into the fire.
As for Dusk here, he's a base 9,000 when he isn't the
Vanguard, which is rather disappointing as any Grade 2
from a Ride Chain normally is, but as a Vanguard, he
gains a rather nice power boost as he can basically be
anywhere from 11,000-12,000 depending on if you are
successful on the Ride Chain or not. Like all Gen 2 Ride
Chains, Dusk gains an extra 1,000 power if you are
staying devoted to the chain without fail, and when he
attacks as Vanguard, he gains a nice 2,000 bonus. In the
previous format, where it was rampant with Cross Rides,
this would be a teaser seeing how you needed to be at
13,000 to be able to pose a threat, but now that most
people are going to Break Rides, where their base stat
is 11,000, it gives cards like this potential.
Art: 3/5 (Definitely one of the prettier looking Ride
Chain cards I've seen)
Next Time: From potentially goos to always being bad...
Go Rogue...Go Pro!

Amber Dragon Dusk, otherwise known as the grade 2 of
the Kagero ride chain.
Personally, I hvae not been too fond on ride chains.
The specifics involved in pulling off their abilities
sometimes put a hinderence on how players want to play a
clan(BUT, there are exceptions).
Amber Dragon Dusk has basic stats: Grade 2, 9000
Power; but all this card screams at me is early game
beatstick. If you pull off the ride chain correctly,
your vanguard can swind for 20,000 in one turn (with the
Overall, the kagero clan has Overlord The End and
with their break ride card recently recently, I doubt
the Amber Dragon Series will be seeing much play.
