Covert Demonic Dragon, Kagura Bloome


4th card of the week is Murakumo's Break Ride, Kagura Bloome. Like before, you have to pay CB1 to have anything happen, but when you do ride a new Murakumo Late Game, you get 10k AND two more copies of your new Vanguard. And then the copies bounce to your hand at the end of the turn.


Plus points? Murakumo finally start to make a little more use out of the cloning gimmick in the form of permanent advantage. Only Hyakki Vogue can boast that. Two attackers, although shieldless, suddenly appear.


Downside? Similar problem I noted in my Magatsu Storm review; the issue with cloning just your Vanguard is that you'll be spending all game hoping "gee, I sure hope I don't lose my copies from the deck!" And you will be thinking that: You obviously need 1 for Break Ride purposes, so assuming you want 2 clones, only 1 copy can be removed from the deck. And by nature of Late Game, you'll have sped through a fair amount of deck, giving chance quite some margin to screw you. And even if you don't, you will need both of your front row slots to be empty by the time that happens in order to obtain any meaningful advantage, and assuming your pressure didn't suck that's not likely.


Obvious card to combo him with is Hyakki Vogue because of how he works, but Fantasy Petal Storm, Shirayuki is also excellent. Shirayuki bounces her clones to her hand with this combo, so you're essentially adding 2 40k shields to her hand with this combo which lets you survive for longer. And if you don't hit the combo, no worries, just sit on Shirayuki as before and just wait for her Personas to appear.


Kagura Bloome's okay, if chance reliant. But far from the best.

Ah yes, Shirayuki's best friend in the whole world.
Even if you have to Break Ride itself, you get two more copies to the field.  Unlike most Murakumo units that call units to the field, this guy has them return to your hand rather than the deck at the end of the turn.  Hence why both Shirayuki and Mandela Lord are extremely happy as they look at this guy.  After all, the biggest problem that Persona Blast cards have is getting another copy of the card to your hand.  This guy makes it so that you will always have a Shirayuki in hand ready to go.
This is, to Murakumo what Lord of the Seven Seas, Nightmist is for Granblue.
Even thought Murakumo isn't the best, this is a powerful shot to the arm that they needed.
Go on, use this with Murakumo, you won't be disappointed.
Best part is, if you do break ride with Shirayuki, Daikaiser and any Glory Maelstrom clone can't stop the skill.
