Companion Star-Star Vader, Photon

- # BT17/L06EN

Date Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2014

[AUTO]:When this unit is placed on (RC), if you have a vanguard with "Star-vader" in its card name and your opponent has a locked card, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and lock it. (The locked card is turned face down, and cannot do anything. It turns face up at the end of the owner's turn.)

Rating:  3.75

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

I think you could have just left it at just Companion Star-Vader, you know. But anyway. This guy, upon being called, locks a RG (any RG), as long as the opponent already has a locked unit out.
Neat stuff. In the Chaos Breaker build, it's one less Dust-Tail or Chaos Breaker's discard to Triangle Lock a field, and it makes nice columns with the 7k boosters. I should note here that although his skill sounds too good to waste, I would play this guy the same way you'd play Colony Maker; if you need the columns to maintain pressure, slap him down; holding him back just means the opponent saves guard and undermines Photon's lock.
Don't let his skill hold back your plays, but still, he's a good accompaniment to whatever you've got.

Ah, Kourin's Avatar, how are you?
Wow, that skill...
This is a staple in Link Joker, plain and simple.  If a Link Joker deck can lock freely (Chaos Breaker, Glendios, Nebula Lord, Legion), they'll be running this unit.  A free lock, a decent attacking body, has a couple of Legions (we'll see the other one later), and an interceptor?
Yeah, staple.  Run this, plain and simple.
Rating: 4.5/5 (only thing holding it back is the fact that like all Link Joker support stuff, you need to lock your opponent's rear guards first.)
