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.
