Finally, we can move on to the Limit Break units of Fighter's Collection 2014 that DON'T suck. At least in theory anyway. Starting us off is yet more Reverse support in the form of Halcion. As a Limit Break unit, it gives all Reverse rear-guards Boost, Intercept, AND 5k shield for guarding or intercepting. And of course, like all Reverse support aces, it turns all Reverse units into Link Joker.
So all in all, you go through the effort of having to run World Line Dragon for the sake of consistency, you end up having to take some liberties with Grade ratio in some cases, and what's the end result? You have an 11k booster to make columns of like 23k MAX with something like Radon, and a little more shield. Problem is it doesn't DO anything that another deck could not do better or with less liberties. Master of Fifth Element (my default card for easily set up columns) could do this with less liberties and at least allows for higher numbers with the support it's got.
This isn't worth the Mid-Game locking Glendios offers. Another bust by Bushiroad.

Only 4 cards this week, folks.  And, thankfully, they're 4 really good ones.
As we continue our coverage of Fighter's Collection 2014, we come across Morikawa's avatar, Halcion.  Remember how, in Season 1, Morikawa played six grade 3s onto the table and was boasting about how great he'd do in that turn?
Well, Halcion allows you to drop six grade 3s into play and use them all to the fullest extent.  It's got the same Ascendant Joker skill that Reverse Cradle and Omega Glendios has, so this deck does use Magnet Hollow, Worldline Dragon and Ruin Magician to get some tricks off.  Plus, no "Lord" ability like Reverse Cradle.  Like I said there, there's no point to the Lord skill with Reverse Cradle.
But Halcion's Limit Break, on the other hand, is something I've never seen before.  Allowing any Reverse (or Re-Birth) unit to boost, intercept, guard from the hand and get an extra 5000 shield out of it.
Effectively, no matter what you drive check, you'll still have shields to defend with.  And, well, 11K boosters are never bad.  While not as competitive as Glendios, which is an absurdly consistent deck, this is probably the only Link Joker deck that no one would mind going up against.  No locking here, thank goodness.
While there's more competitive Link Joker decks, this one's a lot of fun to play.  Give it a try if you can.
