Back to the main COTD
Damn you Nanya, you'll get yours.
Anyway, as the stalemate on the most casual clan of them
all continues, Aqua Force Week hits us, and so we start
with one of the most bastard cards of the lot.
Tetra-boil Dragon here needs a Blue Wave heart and has
to have GB2 online, but by paying the cost of CB1 on
attacking the Vanguard, it essentially gains Tetra Drive
Dragon's ability: It has to attack exactly second and a
rear-guard has to attack the Vanguard exactly 4th, but
then after that battle you can pitch 1 card from the
hand and re-stand Tetra-boil. Oh yes, and for the whole
turn he only gets 2 Drive Checks per attack.
Welp, that's annoyingly powerful. For starters, most
re-standers are a -2 initially and only gives you two
Drive Checks each. This is only a -1 for 4 Drive Checks,
so you still get the same output in card advantage as
Triple Drive. Sure requiring a battle count clause is
annoying but to be honest with the new support here in
conjuction with existing cards such as Tidal and Magnum
Assault, this no longer suffers the problems of the old
Tetra-drive Dragon in that it will almost certainly be
attacking last. That's not even taking into account how
much of a pain in the ass this is combined with
Anger-boil Dragon for easy battle count.
A mainstay for Blue Wave decks obviously and that's
definitely one of the better ones.
And you all thought we were covering more Touken
Ranbu. HA! Psyche! Anyway, Tetra-boil
Dragon here is a Stride for Aqua Force with a new key
word "wave". What is wave? Just an easier
way of saying "x many attacks".
Anyway, you know how the SSS works by now. GB2,
CB1 to do things, generally with a Persona Flip.
In this case, if you have a Blue Wave Heart, this
becomes a standard restanding Stride. Lose one
drive check, discard a card to restand and attack.
From what I'm reading, I may be wrong, but from what I'm
reading, the 4th Wave has to be your rear-guard, not
your vanguard, in order to restand.
Not bad. Standard stuff for Stride restanders.
