Dragonic Burnout

- #BT15/014EN (RR)

Date Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014

AUTO]:[Soul Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (RC), if you have a «Kagerō» vanguard, you may choose a card with "Overlord" in its card name from your drop zone, and put it on the bottom of your deck. If put a card on the bottom of your deck this way, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it.

Rating:  3.50

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Dragonic Burnout

Totally should have been Liberator, Holy Shine Dragon, if we wanted to be consistent, but anyway. Here's the new Overlord support. When called, you put an Overlord in the drop zone to the bottom of the deck. If you do, you Soulblast one to retire ANYTHING on the opponent's field.

That's neat. It's a +1 that uses resources that probably won't go into anything else. Granted, you need a dead Overlord to make it work, but that's what Eternal Bringer Griffin is for, not to mention dumpers like Dragon Monk Gojo (although Griffin takes priority). And being Counterblast free means more resources to spend on Overlord, the End or the Re-birth.

He's going to be a staple in whatever version of the Overlord you build. Good luck fighting the competition to buy him.



Dragonic Burnout

Ooooh! This card! Love this card! Dragonic Overlord support and rear guard hate all in one nice little package. Very similar to Berserk Dragon, but this card only works if you have an "Overlord" card in the Drop Zone.

By putting an "Overlord" from the drop zone to the bottom of the deck, you can Soul Blast 1 to retire any of your opponent's rear guards.

Fun tidbit: At the Sneak Peek, I was riding Dragonic Overlord the End over The End over and over and using Burnout several times. I was against a Nubatama deck and I had already nuked Kuroko with this guy.

How does this compare to Berserk Dragon though?

Well, in a straight up comparison, Berserk *is* the better card, seeing as you can kill nearly anything when it's placed on V or R. However, the Counterblast of 2 for Berserk Dragon is a little hefty at times and some decks can't afford to spare it, like an Overlord deck.

Burnout, sadly, only works as a Rear Guard, so it's not as versatile as Berserk, but it can kill anything your opponent has with one shot.

Seeing as you have to discard a copy of The End to make The End stand back up, this is a near staple in any Overlord-based Kagero deck for sure.

Rating: 4/5 (Overlord deck only)
