November CANNOT come fast enough. I don't think I can think of any more interesting stuff to review.
So instead, this week we fall back on the starter Vanguards of BT15. Kicking things off is Lizard Soldier, Fargo. By putting him into the soul, for that turn your Overlord Vanguard gets to retire a rear-guard whenever its attack hits, Vanguard or rear-guard. 

It's alright, as far as starters go now that Conroe is no longer with us. It's a 1-1 if it succeeds, but it has the potential to go further. The Overlords have the capacity to attack more than once, which of course translates to more potential retire targets. I should point out however that Fargo is only likely to succeed if it attacks a rear-guard since guarding the Vanguard (particularly in stages of the game where it needs to be anyway regardless of skill) since Late Game operates around not hitting with the Vanguard unless you're lucky.
Fargo can be a nice evening-out tool if you're behind by providing some incentive to guard early, or as a way to bomb a problematic column if you don't think your Vanguard will finish the opponent that turn. He's a staple in Overlord based decks, so find one quick.

Looks like it's Forerunner week, folks, everything this week is a Forerunner, so we don't need to go into the "when you ride the right clan on this card, call it to R" skill more than today, plus they all have 5000 power, so, with those out of the way, let's go into the skills they posses.
Fargo here, if you put it into the soul while you have an Overlord Vanguard, you get to retire any rear guards if you hit.
It's meant to be used with the Dragonic Overlord Re-Birth Break Ride, but of course this'll work with the BT-01 Overlord, the Break Ride, The End and any future Kagero Overlord.
Well, technically, it works with any card with "Overlord" in the name, so it could work with Phantom Blaster Overlord, but you probably wouldn't use it in that deck.
Anyway, hit a rear guard, retire another rear guard, then hit the vanguard?  Retire another rear guard.  It is...  insanely good and makes cards like The End even more pressure-heavy than it already was.
It's a pretty good card, but right now, Red Pulse Dracokid is a little better for the Overlord deck, at this moment.  This card will be a lot better later on.
