Mythical Destroyer Beast, Vanargandr 

I entered a local tournament staring down some of these guys, so you may find some of my reviews influenced a bit. But with that in mind, it's finally time to get started on G Booster 4 with Genesis's G-Unit ace, Vanargandr. As a GB2 skill (which saves ink on the whole needing a G-Unit face-up before clause), at the start of the drive step, you Soulblast 6 to look at the top 4 cards of your deck. You can then put as many at the top and bottom of the deck as you like. 

I thought of Fortuna at first looking at this card. I want to make something clear here: I don't like Fortuna. You pay 3 soul to lose a dud check for a chance at another, and it only grows more inefficient the more her skill is used on a single turn. Vanargandr is a bit more efficient, scrying 4 cards for 6 soul, compared to Fortuna who requires 12 soul to do the same, not to mention he naturally gets 3 chances at a trigger every time. Having said that, he's still hit-and miss, since the top 4 is random, sometimes not turning up as many triggers as you like, but I would say that he makes the likelihood of at least 1 trigger that turn very high.

His inconsistency turns me off, and so does his over-reliance on Fenrir to function properly, but at least he does something. But he'll get dicked over by anything that interferes with a board causing those triggers to fizzle in the face of a Perfect Guard.

Oh lookie!  A GB2 Stride unit.  On attack, SB6, Persona Flip to Scry 4.
So, basically, you look at the top four, decide if you want to keep any of the cards and then put them on the top or bottom in any order you choose.
This, this is super solid.  Not as good as a Glory Clone+Crit or a Restander, but you can guarantee yourself a triple drive check of what you want and if your opponent didn't PG, well, good game.
So, tl;dr version, if you have Genesis, you use this, plain and simple.  Scry is too good to pass up.

Mythical Destroyer Beast, Vanargandr 

Well looks like this week is for the big league Strides of G-set 4, now that sneaks are going on. Starting us off is the Genesis G-Persona unit, Vanargandr. When he attacks the VG, while at GB2, you can Persona Flip and Soulblast 6 to stack the top 4 cards of your deck in the top or bottom in any order. The purpose of this on paper is obviously to stack triggers or maybe PGs on your drivechecks to sack the opponent. 

...Well, looks like Genesis finally gets a unique boss since pretty much Fortuna. I'm not too aware on the math behind this, but I do know the chance to get at least 1 trigger off a normal Triple Drive is about 75%, meaning that getting at least 1 trigger is almost guaranteed with this unit, not to mention more depending on your stack. I feel this card is pretty difficult to judge because its goal is to do something every single deck can do (sack triggers) but in a consistent fashion, but there's no real surprise factor to it because the opponent knows that you will almost definitely check a Crit and PG the attack.  Anyway, there's also other applications to this card such as Hati and its G2 version being able to power up off of the Soulblasting, not to mention Fenrir and Leyding. The power gainers + the triggers Vanagargandr will pass to them will make your RG columns have finishing level power, so I would definitely recommend taking that route if you want your focus to be on this card. 

Overall, good enough finisher of G-Genesis and solid alternative plan for older builds like Regalia. 

Rating: 4/5

Art: 5/5 I like how the art makes it obvious that it's an evolution of Fenrir.

Card Design: 4/5 It has multiple applications and is actually relatively unique for the copyclan known as Genesis, so I'm impressed.
