Shura Stealth Dragon, Mandoracongo


I think Nanya suggested this and I'd like to take this opportunity to remind him that's not a Stealth Beast, as the email I got said, it's a Stealth Dragon. Unless Bill caught the mistake and fixed it first.


So anyway, this is Nubatama's Legion option. By Legioning with Daranicongo, it gains the ability to temporarily bind 2 cards in the opponent's hand and one on their field by counterblasting 1 and discarding a unit from your hand that has the same name as one of your vanguards. Oh, and he gains 3k when he attacks and someone else is occupying his column.


...Yeah, this is why I said Nubatama are this close to being awesome but are held back by their suck units. Firstly, it's difficult to spring, as pseudo Persona Blasters are, but not only that, it's not really good for very much apart from the very end of the game when you want to screw as much guard as possible by then and make that 6th damage happen, which runs contrary to Legion being supposed to be used in the middle. The Legion Mate can probably aid in making this temporary loss permanent, as can your starter Kuroko, but to be honest Vortex Dragonewt costs a similar payment and for an extra Counterblast retires 2 things that AREN'T random and inflicts a damage. A better way to play, in my mind.


It has merits compared to the entirely restricted to Late-Game Kabukicongo, but for now Nubatama is still a bit shy of the top dogs of today and tomorrow.





Shura Stealth Beast, Mandoracongo

Hey, a Nubatama Legion! What are the odds? If you buy the Royal Paladin trial deck, this is what you get from it. This unit legions with Shura Stealth Dragon, Daranicongo. Which is what Nubatama needed after all this time, but we'll get into that in a bit. First, Mandoracongo here.

This has the typical when attacking with another unit in the center line, +3000 power boost, nothing special there.

But that Type-2 Legion skill... It's almost like Kabukicongo and Kujikiricongo had a child and this is the result. CB1 to Persona Blast while in Legion to make your opponent, if they have four or more cards in hand, bind two cards face down and then bind one of their rear-guards face-up. At the end of the turn the units bound by this go back to the hand.

That's... Pretty good, definitely flows with what Nubatama do. This is the point where someone makes a comparison to other legions from other clans to make a comparison that's like comparing bananas to snakes or some such.

Anyway, let's look at the Legion mate, and the whole reason Nubatama players are happy as a clam right now.

While Daranicongo only works if your vanguard is in Legion, the fact that Daranicongo has the same effect as Kuroko is a very welcome thing for Nubatama players. See, if Kuroko got nuked or locked, then Nubatama lost a lot of what it could do outside of the BT-01 cards that forced discards. Daranicongo is an 11K attacker, if your vanguard is in Legion, that can send units from the bind zone to the drop zone.

All I can say is, if you're running Nubatama, these two are making you very happy right now.
