Dragonic Vanquisher
G Booster 2: Thor's Orgasm Dragons week this week. Starting us off is the Stride unit for Narukami, Dragonic Vanquisher. His Generation Break 2 skill is to gain 3k and a critical whenever a unit is retired via a skill until end of turn. On-Stride skill is to CB1 to retire an opponent's front row unit and then bind it. So it's gone forever, basically.
...It's not horrible, I suppose, but I don't really see this as something worthy enough to take up a RRR slot. Gen Break's too slow for the Critical to even start mattering outside of Blizza. Binding also sounds nice but it seems to be a bit flaccid in terms of sealing stuff like Legion and other Drop Zone dependent strategies.
The best that can be said is that this isn't a bad fail-con ride for tomorrow's card since at least it actually does something.
For now, however, the G Units you pick up are better off supporting Eradicators or Brawlers since they actually have pretty solid card choices already.

And here's a Narukami that sees himself as a Warrior, and even though he, at one point, was able to slaughter many invaders into the Dragon Empire, he doesn't like to get involved in small skirmishes, believing that one should only use their power to smash a path forward to advance.
It's a bit weird, but that is how he feels.
Anyway, the Narukami Break Stride is really good.  The GB2 skill is basically Gauntlet Buster Dragon, so, while stackable, it's one to ignore, I think.  Plus, well, you're forced to run generic Narukami to make it work, if I'm not mistaken, most, if not all, the Brawler and Eradicator support that retires stuff is sub-clan only.  At least Blizza makes the GB2 skill go off right away.
The Break-Stride skill, however.  That's nice.  It should be noted that it will trigger any "when this unit is placed in the drop zone from R" skill.  However, if that specific unit would get a skill that returns it to play or to the hand, it can't return to play or the hand, sorry Tachikaze players.
Don't ask me why, my guess is that it by the time you could choose to return it to the hand/field, it's in the Bind Zone.
Now, I admit, I've not looked at the new G-Era Narukami at all, so I have no clue just how good the rest of the support is, but I do know that this makes Legion-based decks cry a little.
Plus, unlike most bind skills, this seems to be permanent.
It seems like a decent enough boss for non-Eradicator/non-Brawler Narukami decks, and unlike Blademaster for Kagero, it's not overshadowed by a Legion Revival of an old boss.
Rating: 4.5/5
