Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Overlord "The Ace"
I pre-ordered 4 when their price was half of what it is currently, suck it.
Probably my favourite card from here, Dragonic Overlord "The Ace", rather unusually, doesn't need anything specific as a heart. Instead, as an ACT skill, you CB2 and G Persona Blast, and then if you have 2 face-up G Units, he loses 1 Drive Check for the turn, but after attacking the Vanguard, once per turn, you toss 2 cards from the hand (one of which must be an Overlord card) and he stands. Oh, and he gains 5k too.
Of course I don't let emotion get in the way of my reviews so how does he stack up? Well, lots of people will basically compare him to Victoplasma, who has basically the same skill and similar requirements. And then they'll say Victoplasma's better owing to not having a restriction on what can be pitched and what can't. 
Okay fine, SHED DOTA (I'll admit the acronym's slightly funny) has stricter requirements but it should hardly be called a deal-breaker. He's basically the best finisher The X decks have and that's already decently heavy on Overlords as it is.
The trick is never to show you don't have an Overlord to pitch. Just do it. As long as it can't be quickly exposed as a lie, anyway. Seriously, the number of games I have bluffed my way through with this when the opponent would otherwise be able to block everything is...
Come July when G Booster 3 is out I wouldn't say it's a 4 of because of how specific his timing needs to be, but it probably won't stop The X players from not using this.


Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Overlord "The Ace"
So, Overlord The Ace, huh?  A stride that needs an "Overlord" in the Heart to work.
According to the Lore, The Ace is from an alternate future timeline, yes, another future timeline, where he took over Cray completely.
...Sheesh, I knew that the Great became as powerful as he did because no one kept him in check, I guess this is what happens when the Great's power and the ambition of the Eternal Flame rends the world into ashes.  I mean, really, Overlord, do you NEED to take over the world?
CB2 and Persona flip and if you have two or more face-up in the G-zone, this unit becomes Victoplasma, save that you need to discard an Overlord as one of the two cards to make it restand.
For more info, go look at my review of Victoplasma, my view on this hasn't changed, but, good on Bushiroad for at least balancing this.
But the picture is awesome at least.
