Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Dragon

Required for the Big Bang Knuckle deck to even work, it's Big Bang Knuckle Dragon. Legioning with Big Bang Slash Dragon, after doing so he becomes a cheap Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion, attacking the front row for a turn by Counterblasting 2 Brawlers. His normal skill is to Soulblast 1 on attack to gain 3k.
I think most people already know he exists to pay for Knuckle Buster's cost as well as instantly make Knuckle Buster 13k in one move, so I'll look at this as the ride option should we not get Knuckle Buster first. How does he hold up? Well, CB2 for +2 is fairly standard now. Problem is the fact he can't really be combined with Fighting Dracokid for a CHEAP board cleaning, because CB4 speaks for a LOT of Counterblast. At least he can fuel his own Legion quickly with Soulblast.
Overall though, he isn't horrible. At least he can provide a Crossride base for Knuckle Buster in a combo to wipe out some units.

Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Dragon
And finishing off the week we have Big Bang Knuckle Dragon, who apparently stole Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion's power, is very rude, crude and blunt to everyone, despite that, he's very powerful and well liked, especially since he drafted the entire Brawler Brigade with only a few words.
Anyway, Knuckle Dragon legions with Slash Dragon, who has a very similar skill to Slash Buster, save for that he doesn't get +2000 when attacking to start with.
If you attack with Knuckle Dragon, you can Soul Blast 1 to give him +3000 for the battle.
I do like that ability, since it fills your drop zone up without having to expend a large amount of cards from your hand, leaving you with more to defend with.
And the Legion ability, well, like I said, it ripped off Vermillion's power and used it for itself.  ECB 2, it gets +5000 and the ability to hit the whole front row at the same time.
Poor Vermillion, if not for what's coming next set, you'd be rolling over in your grave, crying right now.
So, should we call this the Brawler Thunderbolt?  Or Super Brawler Big Bang Attack?
...Sorry, couldn't help myself.
Anyway, very solid unit, always nice to smash more than one unit at a time of course.
