What's up, Rogue Squad?! So for today's Card of the Day, we're going to be taking a look at the new (and personally, superior) Nova Grappler Break Ride:

Mont Blaukluger
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Nova Grappler
Race: Battleroid
[AUTO] Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):When a źNova Grappler╗ rides this unit, choose your vanguard, and until end of turn, that unit gets [Power]+10000 and "[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, [Stand] all of your źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards.".
[AUTO](VC):When this unit is boosted by a źNova Grappler╗, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

...this is an absolutely freaking awesome card in my opinion! Mond Blau is the new boss in charge of Nova Grapplers, and he definitely demands attention as the inexperienced player will be caught completely off guard from the fact that it's basically Ethics Buster if done better with a small cost. The fact that the card makes it so that you get an extra two fully powered attacks at the cost of a single Counterblast makes it a bit more complex to compete against should you not be prepared for it. One thing I saw somebody at my locals do is to combine this with yesterday's card, Immortal Asura, and essentially have a different variant to the Infinite Hell formation that's normally only done with Ethics Reverse though if there's one thing we can't debate, it's that the more attacks that go through during the turn they Break Ride, the lower your odds are in surviving!

Rating: 4.5/5
Art: 4/5
Next Time: Asura's crazy risktaker

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T BE A SACKBOY!!!


Mond Blaukluger

Aaaand we move on to Immortal’s best friend: Moon Blue Wisdom. A Break Ride that for Counterblast 1, restands all of your rear-guards on attack.

I already explained why this guy’s awesome in yesterday’s review, so I won’t repeat myself here, so instead I shall address something that entails using this guy pretty wrong. Pairing him with the new Galaxy Blaukluger. I’ll go more in depth on Galaxy on Thursday, but basically, when your Blau hits a VG in Limit Break, Galaxy and his booster restands. However, there is a catch. Assuming you’re meant to pair him with Mond, your rear-guards have to go first. But due to a nasty ruling on Galaxy, the moment a Blau hits the Vanguard, you MUST pay Galaxy’s cost at that moment or else you cannot use the skill at all even if the conditions are filled again later that turn. And that’s a bust if Galaxy HASN’T ATTACKED YET.

Now you may think, so what? I’ll swing at the Rear-Guards then. Are you sure? You sacrificed your plays during Mid Game to accomplish what is a rather setup reliant +1 (-1 from riding again, then +2 to killing two Rear Guards). That’s basically a more Counterblast effective, but less card advantage giving Vermillion. And Vermillion isn’t exactly kicking around anymore. That and by the time you pull this off, both players should on average be on 4 damage, so the opponent has to guard everything anyway lest a Crit doom them to insta-loss.

Mond shouldn’t be paired with who you think. However, what tiny niche he fills, he fills very well.
