What's up, you guys?! So it's time that we continued Saikyo's "Exam Week"...which I still question to say the very least name wise, but it's whatever. Let's see what we've got:

Beast Diety, Ethics Buster
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):When this unit attacks a vanguard, [Stand] all of your źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards in the front row.".
[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)

...from a bad card to a good one. Ethics Buster is a solid Nova Grappler Break Ride with 11,000 Power with a nasty Break Ride effect with, given the right formation, can be a game-ending Break Ride. The Break Ride, like any other Break Ride, gives your Vanguard an extra 10,000 and an effect where when the new Break Ride attacks the Vanguard, your rear-guards in the frontline get to Stand back up for more attacks. For most people, they would be using this with Illuminal Dragon, which is honestly, probably the best formation to use it in as it can potentially restand your entire field. Personally, I've been using this with Death Army Cosmo Lord, and it's probably the funnest and funniest Break Ride as it can make Cosmo Lord attack with at least 40,000 Power when it's all said and done and still have extra attacks to boot. The main downside of this though is that if you're facing a deck that is capable of decapitating your rear-guards, like Kagero, Narukami and Link Joker, then it'll cripple your Break Ride, but if you can get over that, then you're golden.

Overall, Ethics Buster is a very good Break Ride and can surprisingly be good in any Nova Grappler deck regardless of sub-clan or not.

Rating: 4/5
Art: 4/5 (Probably one of the best looking arts on a Break Ride)
Next Time: Now you see me...now you die.

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!


Beast Deity, Ethics Buster

Next up, we have the newest ace of the Beast Deities, Ethics Buster. A Break Ride unit that allows you to stand your front row on-attack. So -1, you gain 10k, you get two 5k shields forced at best.

Now, generally standing front row units usually doesn't amount to much, even if they have the capacity to swing for 5k guard each. He really does need to be combined with something to let the boosters come in as well, since at best it ends up being just a slightly different Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion. Best case scenario is if you combine this with Illuminal Dragon for two whole columns, but even then, it just means packing all your attack spam abilities into one turn, as opposed to older decks where you could go live from Turn 3. So there's really not a lot of impact to be found compared to the old Asura Kaiser deck. And I can't recommend THAT deck either.

Hold onto them until BT13. They're seriously missing a lot of pieces right now, so just wait.
