Blue Wave Dragon, Anger-boil Dragon
Awesome, we get to the good part. Anger-boil's first skill is GB2, as one normally expects for something whose second skill works on-Stride. Basically, when he attacks exactly second, it stands a rested rear-guard and gives it 10k, while Anger-boil gains 5k until the end of turn in both cases. Stride skill only works when you Stride into Tetra-boil: it grants 3k to the Vanguard and a skill that works when the Vanguard attacks exactly second, standing two rested rear-guards and giving them 3k until the end of the turn.
As I mentioned in Monday's review, this is how you're going to rack up the 4 battles to re-stand Tetra-boil. Foivos's whole column, then Foivos attacks twice more after the Vanguard to allow the re-stand and still allow one column to attack with, which old Tetra decks couldn't do.
The GB2 skill may not seem entirely interesting given that if it ever hits that stage you'd want to Stride into Tetra-boil a second time, unless you can't spare the Counterblast for whatever reason, but if straits are dire then this can at least allow anything that can swing for 11k+ a way of forcing another 10k shield, like Magnum Assault's booster or a Phoivos that went first.
Rather unfortunate there is no way to reliably search this but all in all Tetra-boil is so nutty it's basically a bonus at this stage. Still, when he appears, you'd better hope you can kill them fast.


Blue Wave Dragon, Anger-boil Dragon
Oh, hey, for once Aqua Force copies some other clan.  In this case, Anger-boil copies Blaster Dark "Diablo", works okay, but gets real mileage out of striding a specific unit on top of it.
So, when you Stride with Tetra-boil Dragon, your Vanguard gets +3000 (though I don't know why, Cross-Ride isn't used much anymore outside of Narukami), and on your second attack, which has to be your Vanguard, you restand two of your rear-guards and they each get +3000 until the end of the turn.
Which makes it really easy to get to 4 waves with this deck.  Plus you get to restand your Vanguard's booster if you want to, allowing for more power crashing down (ha! pun!) onto your opponent.
Oh, there's a GB2 skill, which isn't bad, seeing as it gives this unit +5000 power and then restands one of your rearguards with two full stages of power.
Um, yeah, need I say more?  This is really good, and you should probably run it in a Blue Wave deck.
