Date Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014

[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):When your unit with "Я" in its card name is placed on (RC), choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, lock it, and this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn. This ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn. (The locked card is turned face down, and cannot do anything. It turns face up at the end of the owner's turn.) [CONT](VC):All of your rear-guards with "Я" in its card name is also a «Link Joker». [CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

Star-Vader, "Reverse" Cradle

Meet the mini-Omega Glendios, Star-Vader, Reverse Cradle. He's a strange card. His Limit Break is that once per turn, when you call a "Я" rear-guard (and before you ask, the Re-Birth has the backwards R and so he counts too), you lock a unit. But Lord is a thing, doesn't that screw you?

Well, that's where the second skill comes in. It bypasses Lord by having all Reverse rear-guards be treated as Link Joker.

Thoughts? Well, he's basically your main fail-condition in a dedicated Glendios deck by being a slightly poorer version of that. Also, being a Reverse unit himself means he fuels Glendios and his support. But stand-alone, the fact that Worldline Dragon is compulsory just to have ride consistency plus the lack of lock capacity means that as a whole, he really isn't worth taking liberties for as long as Infinite Zero and Chaos Breaker exist.

I'll probably bitch more about this on Thursday (so spoilers for that, guys). But long story short, I wouldn't go out my way to hunt for this new Link Joker stuff.



Star-vader, "Яeverse" Cradle

Okay, first, I'd like to send an apology to an online opponent I had a few months ago. I completely misread this card's effect and thought I could use the effect more than once a turn.

So, this is something different, the first skill, other than Lord, to look at, is "Ascendant Joker", aka, all Я units are Link Jokers as well as their base clans, so, the Lord skill really seems redundant, doesn't it?

Which, isn't bad, after all, it can allow units like Leopald Яeverse or Ashlei Яeverse to see new life in a new deck.

The Limit Break, though, it what helps this card out a lot. Every time a Я unit is placed in the Rear Guard zone, you lock one of your opponent's rear guards and this unit gains 5000 more power.

Something that should be noted is that Star-Vader, "Яeverse" Cradle works for this effect himself. In fact, any effect that requires a Я unit to be played, this unit will work with it. So, hooray! A Яeverse unit that is also a Link Joker! Synergy!

You'll see why this is important on Thursday.
