Planet Idol, Pacifica
It's Bermuda's THIRD Break Ride today, Planet Idol Pacifica. As usual, you ride a Bermuda in Late Game, your VG gains 10k. And then, she grants a skill that lets you, once per turn, call a new rear-guard from the deck whenever you bounce one of your units back to the hand. Second skill...is, for once, NOT a generic power gaining effect. What she ACTUALLY does is...when she's in the soul (so more often than not, after Break Riding) you counterblast 1 to move a Top Idol Pacifica into the soul to bounce a rear-guard AND Planet Idol back to the hand.
First ability's kind of meh, without a combo piece. You get some guard quality out by bouncing, that is true, but without her skill or some other bounce source all you'll really do is eat resources you'd normally use up anyway, whereas Meer for Duos can sack EVERYTHING by herself. Meer's better at the job, so there's not much point.
Second skill's not brilliant either. I know she's meant to be combined with the Eternal Idol Pacifica build, but to be honest, having to jump through this many hoops for a simple CB3 for a +1 (it is, you -1 from riding again, then use Eternal Idol's LB, then the Break Ride for +2) isn't any different from the usual combo save for the 10k increase in power.
However, it's not all doom and gloom for her, because tomorrow's card can be combined with her for quite the effect. Gimmicky, but it's actually not a bad tanking team. You'll find out what I mean. 
But for now, unless you're going to go for that build specifically, I wouldn't go nuts trying to get her.

And promo week continues.
Now we have a Break Ride.  And boy does this have some random effects.  Let's look at the non Break Ride skill first.  So, if you have this in the soul, you can CB1, take a Top Idol, Pacifica from the Rear guard and put it into the soul and then return this card to the hand and bounce on of your other Bermuda rear guards.  This...  is kind of weird for a Break Ride, so, I wonder...
Oh, the Break Ride skill, any time a rear guard is put into hand from the rear guard, you can superior call a new unit to the field.
Still, why would this work like that unless...  Ah!  Now I get it, it works with Eternal Idol, Pacifica.  Put the Top Idol into the soul so Eternal Idol gets the crossride defense without needing to ride a second time, then get EIP's Limit Break to bounce 2 more and call 3 units from the deck on top of the 4th one you called this turn.
Yeah, okay, I admit, this is pretty neat and useful.
A bit random and totally useless outside of Pacifica, but, hey, it could work.
If you run a non-Duo Bermuda deck, give it a whirl, you might like it.
