What's up, Rogue Squad?! So to wrap up our Dragon
Week, we're actually taking a look at an old school
Dragon Monk, Goku
[AUTO](VC):When this unit's drive check reveals a grade
3 «Kagerō», choose an opponent's grade 1 or less
rear-guard, and retire it.
...I love how the flavor text for this card in this
pack doesn't even try to hide on how this is supposed to
be a reference to DBZ Goku. Anyway, Goku is a 10,000
Power, Grade 3, which isn't really recommended these
days given on how easy it is to bully anything with that
stat, and the effect to where if you Drive Check a Grade
3 Kagero, then you can, essentially, retire a booster on
the opponent's field. I have some really mixed feelings
about this card as I personally feel that his effect is
really good as he's doing what Kagero does best: mess
with the opponent's field. However, we need to take in
account that it only works if you Drive Check a Grade 3.
The average player runs about 7-8 Grade 3's, and by the
time you get to Grade 3, you're bound to see half of
them at the very most, so that minimizes the
probabilities of pulling this off as your run of the
mill Heal Trigger's odds. That and in a month or two,
we're going to have Dauntless Dominate Dragon "Яeverse",
which is essentially a souled up version of him with
better stats and the ability to Crossride.
A few years ago, this card would've been awesome and
a very good rogue deck, but nowadays, he's very
overlooked as Kagero has a few handful of bosses that
are just overall better than him...
Next Time: Gundams...at least it better be!!!
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!
Dragon Monk, Goku
Ah, I remember this thing. Drive Check a Grade 3 Kagero
and kill an opponent's booster? Hard to believe I passed
him over for Aleph and Blazing Flare back in the day.
What a fool I was.
Back in the day, he was an overlooked engine of death.
The capacity to get more out of the Drive Check and kill
things for no cost made him deadly. Combined with other
units like Berserk Dragon to kill attackers Goku can't
touch, and you had a chain reaction that could clean the
opponent up. Obviously NOW, he ain't so hot, considering
there are now units who can either pack a skill that's
more of a decisive game-ender, or there's other cards
who can kill things guaranteed every turn rather than
rely on chance to do it. However, he's a great
All that's left is for me to wonder why Vague was first.
We could have ended the week on a high...
