What's up, Rogue Squad?! So for today's Card of the Day, we're actually not going to be looking at a boss unit but a support card instead:

Beast Deity, Brainy Papio
Power: 9000
Grade 2
Clan: Nova Grappler
Race: Battleroid
[AUTO](VC/RC):[Counter Blast (1)-card with "Beast Deity" in its card name] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, if you have a źNova Grappler╗ vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your other źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards, and [Stand] it.

...at first, I really thought that this was a mediocre card until I saw it in action...and oh my god is this an annoying pressure card to go against when combined with Max Beat! Let's put it this way: Papio boosted by Max Beat hits the Vanguard? Especial Counterblast to stand Max Beat, which then you can Counterblast 1 to restand the same Papio that just attacked! Yes it does overall cost 2 Counterblast to do this trick, but the fact that you essentially get another strike after hitting is worthy of noting as this is how decks like this really shine.

Combine that with a 9,000 Power base and excellent support, and Mecha Rafiki here is definitely a staple for your Beast Deity deck.

Rating: 5/5 (for own deck)
Art: 4/5 (It's freaking metal Rafiki...enough said!)
Next Time: Is it bad to be a higher rarity but worth less than some Rares?...

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

Beast Deity, Brainy Papio
What the hell is a Papio anyway? But moving on. We have new Beast Deities on the prowl, and this one, when its attack hits the Vanguard, lets you Counterblast 1 Beast Deity to stand a different Rear-Guard.
Obviously the best units to stand within his build is any rear-guard with Riot Horn in its column (although keep in mind Riot will usually screw that column by being a weak booster so you'll need it set up just right) or Max Beat in it. In the case of Max Beat, you can then start a chain reaction with Max standing the unit it's boosting making a whole new column, which will then attack and most likely get blocked for 10k. CB2 for a +1 isn't really my thing but at least it's there, and a build centered around Extreme's light on CB anyway.
All in all, not much to say. He's a staple in his own build.
