I would have preferred a clean sweep with Ragnaclock
getting involved this week, but Nanya went and blew that
load early (grr), so we'll get the odd one out out of
the way today.
It's G-Unit Week, and we look at...NOT a G-Unit, but a
card that supports G-Units. Victor here has a Generation
Break 2 ability that allow him to stand a rear-guard and
give it 5k when Victor attacks. And as for his second
skill, when you Stride on top of Victor...the G-Unit
gets the same ability, except it's not GB2, it's just
normal. And it's restricted to once per turn, to avoid a
re-standing VG clause. And you need to Counterblast 1.
So here we are. We have the new Nova Grappler deck's
main ride. So how does it work on its own merits? Well,
granting the power to force potentially another 5k
shield out of the opponent for another attack for CB1 is
efficient enough I suppose, and coupled with a
threatening G-Vanguard like Vic-Ten it's got quite the
bite. Generation Break-wise, as usual it seems pretty
slow. Scratch that, with the support it's currently got
it's slower than the others, since unlike Ragnaclock or
similar Victoplasma provides absolutely no skill if you
haven't Stridden already, preventing you from abusing
Victor early unless you're REALLY nuts and want to eat 2
CB and a -1 from the hand.
You need to reliably Stride in the deck he's in,
otherwise a vanilla Vanguard is no good. Or fun. But for
what it's worth, He's actually really good.

Hey kids! Are you ready for an EXTREME week?
Well, we're starting off our EXTREME week with Exxtreme
Battler Victor! So sit down, strap yourselves in,
because it's going to be EXTREME!
Also, Victor here seems to be an EXTREME shout-out to
Gundam Build Fighters. You should watch that,
because it's EXTREME!
This EXTREME Nova Grappler Stride boss lets you do
EXTREME things when you stride! Namely, allowing one of
your EXTREME rear guards re-stand for a single
counterblast on the turn you EXTREME Stride with an
extra 5000 power to go with it! Man, that's so
EXTREME that I can barely contain myself here!
On top of it, this unit's EXTREME GB2 skill gives him an
extra EXTREME +5000 power and allows him to do the same
skill as his EXTREME on-stride skill, just without
needing a Counter Blast to do so.
Man, that's so EXTREME that it almost makes Phoenix
Raizer look mellow. Almost, but he's a touch
slower, so not as EXTREME for the restanding! But
at least you don't need to wait for four damage to do it
like Ethics Buster. So, you still have that
So EXTREME that I can't help but bang my head up and
down like I'm rocking out a hard rock guitar solo right
...Okay, so I ran that into the ground, don't you think?
Anyway, short version is, this is a nice non-legion Nova
Grappler deck. We're going to be looking at Stride
units the rest of the week, so enjoy it. And, yes,
if you're running pure stride Nova Grapplers, run this.
Won't be doing that the rest of the week, I promise.
