Back to the main COTD
Here we have what you ride instead if you fail to get
Mega-flare. Phoenixraizer Drill-Wing legions with
Flare-wing, and for that, when it attacks, you
Counterblast 2 and stand whatever Raizers are both in
the front row and have boosters behind them. Normal
skill's a generic power gain, as is standard.
Not great compared to Mega-flare, but being a
Legion-based Nova Grappler gives enough reason to run
it, if only to give Cat Butler a bit more to do.
Otherwise, you're going to find standing 2 front-row
units generally won't be as explosive.
Nonetheless, he's pretty much the most viable backup to
Mega-flare. Use it for that if nothing else.
Hey, Ethics Buster, when did you become a Legion?
Phoenixrazier here was designed to do close range
battles while the mate, Flame-wing, a generic 12K
beater, was designed for mid-range battles, it is said
that there's no weaknesses.
...But what about long range, guys?
I idly wonder if his drill pierces the stars or not.
Anyway, Drill-wing has the standard 3K power boost if in
Legion or if a booster is behind it as a Vanguard.
When in Legion, if you have units in the front row with
boosters behind them, after Drill-wing attacks, you can
CB2 to restand your rear guards.
And, apparently I mis-read this thing, sorry, Conner.
Drill-wing ONLY restands front-line rear guards, not the
Anyway, if you have a Cat Butler in play, you can get
Infinite Hell, Legion Edition, going off if your
vanguard's attack gets blocked. I don't think
anyone running this would complain at all.
While Megaflare does put more ample pressure right away,
I think Drill-wing's a bit better, simply because you
can get upwards of 8 attacks (with Cat Butler) or more
(if you have more than one Cat Butler in play) going
off. Course, it requires 2 Counter Blasts each
time, but, hey, Infinite Hell required two counter
blasts and it only worked just that turn, this can work
twice in one turn if needed.
See you tomorrow, folks.
Legion Rating: 3.75/5
