Once we had the support announced for G Booster 4, suddenly this not being on-hit makes sense. Or at least it would if the Angel Feather one didn't need to hit. But anyway, Doom Brace has a once-per-turn ACT skill. Soulblast 3 to give up to 2 rear-guards 5k power, then if that leaves you with 2 or less soul, Soul Charge 3.
In normal Genesis, this is a cheap way to suddenly spring those With of Frogs and Witch of Ravens you put in the soul and power up. Outside of that? Eh, pressure early on in something like Regalia when you Soulblast a Hesperis and then net 3 soul back. Mostly though, you just want it for the power and the chance to grab enough soul to spring Yggdrasil or perhaps another shot with Minerva. Pity what we have currently isn't a huge source of "screw you"; you have to not Stride to really bring pain. All Genesis have are G-Units that set up. Not that 2/3 of a Soul Saver Dragon's BAD, but it's outclassed nowadays.
Neat Stride option and G Assist Fodder. Just don't go out your way to do so unless you can't Legion though because they lack the punch others have.

I had to look this up, but there's only three Genesis Strides that exist, and one of them is in G-BT-04, so this and the Regalia one from Fighter's Collection is all that Genesis gets unless the user wants to run Cray Elementals.
Now that we got that out of the way, if you Soul Blast 3, you give a mini Soul Saver Dragon skill to up to two rear guards for the turn, and if you don't have much in the soul after that, Soul Charge 3.  Fairly simple and at least it gives you some offense.
Not much else to say, not like Genesis has options right now.
