And now we move on to apparently Aqua Force's new ace.
Tetra Burst Dragon. He legions with Blue Storm Marine
General, Starless. And after that, when he's attacking
4th and the attack is towards a vanguard, you
counterblast 1 and he gains 5k and a Critical. Normal
skill is to gain 3k when your centre column has at least
...Ew. This is seriously really dull. Let's start from
the top shall we?
Since he's almost always attacking last, his Crit gain
only ensures the opponent will drop the PG right in his
face, and you will have nowhere to pass any Critical
Triggers, so all Crits, including his own, will fizzle.
And if the aim is to compensate with Stand Triggers,
you're going to find that the opponent who HASN'T
castrated their offense by running less Criticals will
get ahead of you in damage. Admittedly, when you get
sacked that MIGHT be the only time the opponent will
allow this unit to hit, but gimping your trigger lineup
for one unit who has no job other than to catch up
because of your poor choices is not a good idea.
Tetra-burst remains a largely unnecessary addition to
Aqua Force and does nothing to address any of its
weaknesses. Miss out on this and hope G Booster 2 will

I... I was actually going to skip this one because
I didn't have a real opinion on him, outside of
"Vanguards that gain crits suck."
After talking to someone about the deck and both playing
it and playing against it, I can give a better opinion
First of all, Tetra-Burst Dragon and the other
Legion, Zaharias, play two different styles.
Zaharias is better if you're running re-standing rear
guards because of how his Legion skill works,
Tetra-Burst, though, works better if you're running the
units that swap themselves around.
Apparently Tetra-Burst is a revamped version of
Tetra-Drive Dragon, which makes sense, considering the
look, that allows him to refire his cannons constantly
instead of needing to re-load between attacks.
Plus he got promoted to Rear Admiral.
I really can't give this one a good score, folks.
I'm not even going to compare to other clans, because
that's not fair as other clans have different play
styles. But if I had to choose an Aqua Force deck,
I'd rather run Transcore+Tetra Drive or the Maelstrom
(Original, Reverse and Glory) deck over this.
It's not bad, per say, and since Aqua Force really got
the short end of the stick when it comes to Legion, this
is really all they have for now.
But if you have an Aqua Force deck and don't have the
Legion, I'd say wait a bit more, there's something way
better coming in just a couple of months for Aqua Force.
