Dragonic Overlord


I'd call "psyche!" but I'm fairly sure anyone with an internet connection knows about the re-trained Dragonic Overlord already. So let's cut the crap and get to the point. He's now a Break Ride that grants 10k (of course) and as his unique skill, just once, when your new Vanguard attacks a rear-guard, you can toss a card from the hand and Counterblast 1 to re-stand him regardless of whether or not he hit).


So breaking his skill down, he's essentially a +1 for CB1. You -1 for riding, then slay a RG so it's so far +0. You then toss a card and Twin Drive back 2 so it's an overall +1. Pretty much the same as others Break Rides like Ignition Dragon or Wisteria.


What you really want him for is the fact that he's basically replacing the base Overlord in The End decks and that new ace in the hole that's probably being reviewed next week. And the extra 2 checks means more chances of a trigger to pass on.


Dragonic Overlord as a stand-alone really should be combined with whatever gets multiple shots like his obvious partners as Dauntless can probably fill the niches for any other ace. However, because of what he is I'd hold onto him if you do pull him.




Dragonic Overlord

As he rested from his battle against Majesty Lord Blaster and Phantom Blaster Overlord, Dragonic Overlord's tomb was invaded by the Link Joker itself.  Looking on to the tomb as if it would be an easy target, the Link Joker proceeded to pour the power of the Void into the tomb, to turn the strongest leader of Cray into a willing puppet of Link Joker.  However, the Overlord was not so easily consumed.  Waking up from his slumber, he glared at the Link Joker units before grabbing the power of the Reverse and eating it.  Using this new power, the Overlord slaughtered the Link Joker that dared to disturb his slumber, before he took off to face his rivals in battle once more.
Again, been waiting on this for awhile.
Okay, now, one thing that needs to be said about this card, it has the same name as the BT-01 Dragonic Overlord, thus you can only use four combined copies of either this or the original Overlord.  It's not so bad, any Overlord support such as Burning Horn works with it, plus it gives Dragonic Overlord the End its cross-ride defense.
So, now that that's out of the way, how does this new Overlord work?
Well, for starters, it's a Break Ride.  It also gains +2000 attack if it attacks and you have more rear guards than your opponent does.  Any Kagero that rides on top of it gets +10000 power and, if they attack a rear guard, CB1, discard 1 Kagero in the hand to restand the Vanguard and attack again.  It should be noted that you HAVE to use the Break Ride skill if you want to restand again.  So, for those of you thinking "I'll just combine this with Overlord the End and persona blast after attacking a rear guard and then get the free restand after attacking another rear guard", it won't work, at all.  However, it does not need to be the first attack of the turn.  Meaning you could attack with Overlord the End to the Vanguard and, if you hit, persona blast to attack a rear guard and restand again.  Not exactly a good idea, but you can do it.
Now, how does this compare to Dauntless?
Well, Dauntless is better for most Kagero decks, since you want to put all your pressure on the vanguard itself.
This, however, is better for decks that focus around the Overlord himself.  If you're running Nouvelle Vague, you want to use Dauntless, not Overlord.  If you're running The End, you'll want to use Overlord.
As a side note, if you think about the Break Ride skill, it is a very nice homage to the original Dragonic Overlord as you first have to attack a Rear Guard before attacking the Vanguard.
Rating: 4.5/5 (In an Overlord deck)
Rating: 3/5 (In General Kagero Decks)
