Cosmic Regalia, CEO Yggdrasil
Second card of the week is an expansion on the Regalia series and pretty much the only ace in that Extra Booster I can get behind, CEO Yggdrasil (I'm shortening it to CEO Y from now on, it's a bitch to type and I can never remember how to spell it). She legions with Norn, a unit who grants 5k when soulblasted.
And what's the reward? Well, when she attacks when in Legion, you Soulblast 6 cards, and then she gains +1 Critical, and the opponent can't drop Grade 1s to guard, thus sealing Perfect Guards and Quintet Walls.
Sounds neat. First thing you notice is that she's basically a finisher. All that effort to get that much soul and whatever power bonuses you grant her from Norn, Pray Angel and what have you with the opponent on 4 damage, and they're staring down something nigh unblockable unless they spammed draw like mad. 6 soul's easy enough to obtain thanks to Pray Angel and whatever you've ridden for the turn. One downside is that her ability isn't easy to repeat without basically dedicating most of the deck to soul-charging, so room's tight for actually interesting cards, but the end result is boss so it's worth it.
CEO Y's a neat ace, just mind that the lineup Grade 1 and 2-wise is a bit tight. Also, try not to use her skill to just even the damage, it's not worth it unless you got sacked SO hard.

Not this card, not this card, ARRRRGH!
This is also a Type 2 Legion like Fianna was yesterday, I won't go into the mate here, because Norn has a pretty good skill and should be covered in her own review.
According to the lore, Yggdrasil was created by the Neo Nectar clan and then apparently came to life and appointed her CEO position by Amaterasu.  Huh, go figure.
Let's look at the non-Legion skill first.  When Yggy (as I'm calling her for short) attacks, if she has a booster or if she's in Legion, her attack gets an extra 3000 power.  So, just for the Legion itself, it's a 23000 attack.  Ick.
The Legion skill, this is what causes me anguish with her.
Most of the Legion cards are pretty balanced and fair with their effects, even if the attack strength is high, the effects are pretty mellow compared to a Break Ride+Limit Break combo platter skills.
This card...  Is one of the exceptions.  No question about it, Yggy here is a game breaker.
Soul Blast 6, +1 critical and gain the Glory Maelstrom skill.  It wouldn't be so bad if Genesis didn't have cards that had skills that activated when they're Soul Blasted.
Yes, this is one of the few Vanguards that gain crits that don't suck.  Needless to say, if you are playing against Genesis, do NOT waste triggers guarding rear guards.
I hate this card so much, Soul Blast 6 for Genesis is the same as Kagero Counter Blasting 2.
One of the few legions that utterly curb stomps everything, both in the clan and not in the clan, that came before it with ease.
I won't give this a Legion rating until we cover Norn.
Rating: 5/5
Yes, this card deserves a perfect rating.  Anyone who's played with/against it knows exactly why.

I do not know even where to begin with this card simply because I love it and hate it.  I love playing this card because of its ability when it is in legion and attacking makes my opponent unable to use grade 1's and above and to gain a critical for that battle but I hate playing against it because I can not use grade 1's and above and have to figure out how to guard against it and at the same time worry about that extra critical.  In order to do her effect you must be in legion and when you attack you must soul blast 6 cards; well for Genesis getting 6 cards into the soul is very easy to do and even easier now with all of the new support from the extra booster.  And her skill requires no counter blasts and marries very will with cards like Midday Regalia, Hemera which for simply placing her on the rear guard can put 3 cards with Regalia in their name from your drop zone into your soul.  So using Quintet Walls in this deck and making sure a majority of your units are Regalia can set up a endless amount of 6 in soul needed for her legion effect. Her third effect is pretty standard right now for most legions, it adds a bit of power early on, especially if your opponent has not ridden to grade 3 yet or by the off chance they are grade locked, when this unit attacks it gets plus 3k if you have another unit in the center column.  So if you are in legion it will automatically get the 3k and if you are not but you have a booster behind it she will get the 3k as well. So with a 7k booster it can create a 21k line which is the ideal number to strive for against an 11k vanguard. I feel this is a bit of easy deck to pilot due to the vast amount of combos her and the rest of deck can provide.  I do not think it is auto pilot by any means but sure is a lot of fun those those who like combo's and making your opponent sweat when they are at 4 damage.
