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.

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
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.
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
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)
