Go Rogue,
Go Pro

What's up, Rogue Squad?! So for today's Card of the Day in our Grade 1/7,000 week (or how Saikyo sees it, "if it ain't shiny or Grade 3, then it's 'boring'" week...which I'm now going to dub as Saikyo & Morikawa's Worst Week.), we're going to take a look at a potential staple for the Aqua Force clan:

Wheel Assault
Power: 7000
Grade 1
Clan: Aqua Force
Race: Aquaroid
[AUTO](RC):[Counter Blast (1)] At the end of the battle this unit boosted, if you have an «Aqua Force» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose two of your «Aqua Force» rear-guards, and exchange their positions. (The state of the cards does not change.)

...to put simply, this is how the Storm Riders SHOULD'VE been like. What I love about this card is the fact that there's very little restrictions to using this effect. Didn't attack the Vanguard? You can still use the effect. Went after a rear-guard instead? You can still use the effect. Misplayed on how you wanted to set up your field? You can still use the effect to fix it up! This card is just a perfect fit in the multi striking style that Aqua Force are renowned for as it gives not just your deck, but more importantly, your play field the flexibility that was missing for so long for Aqua Force. Don't get me wrong, Diamantes, Basil and the other Storm Riders are still decent/good, but Wheel Assault is just better.

Solid stats with an effect that makes your field interchangeable definitely gets the WL Seal of Approval!

Rating: 5/5
Art: 4/5

Wheel Assault
Okay, this one's a little better. When he boosts an attack, at the end of it you CB1 to take 2 rear-guards and swap their places, without changing their position.
I actually only found out recently that unlike the Storm Riders, Wheel Assault isn't restricted to an entire column. So you could put two attackers anywhere and then swap them for Chain attacks. Obviously this is one way to spring Tetra Drive, or Maelstrom if you're old school and/or unoptimal. Keep in mind though Tetra needs open damage to use his Limit Break so Wheel Assault should be used sparingly at the start.
At least he's 7k and doesn't suck as a booster. He's nice as far as filler goes.
