Back to the main COTD
Closing the week is Garnet (and no I'm not making a
Steven Universe reference, screw you). Garnet's Limit
Break ability activates on attack. You call up to 3
PRISMs from the hand, and if you call all 3, she gains
an Ultimate Break skill to give herself +1 Drive Check.
Her other skill activates by Especial Counterblasting 1
when a rear-guard you control is returned to your
hand. One other rear-guard gains 5k until end of turn.
Sadly not compatible with Doxic as Doxic cannot target
LB4 skills that grant LB5 skills.
That aside, she's supposed to be combined with Vert for
some shenanigans, but then again so is Labrador. Which
one do I prefer? Labrador. Although her second skill
will pretty much never be used unlike Garnet, her LB is
nowhere near as tedious to pull off fully and with the
LB remover, has considerably more merit. Weaker power
for a +1 doesn't outweigh the pressure through Labrador.
Use only if you actually can't find Labrador. Either way
if Vert isn't your first Vanguard things are only going
to get trickier but at least Labrador has something
going for it early.
[Brand-New PRISM, Garnet]
While three drive checks are nice
on a non-Stride, Garnet won't gain any extra power
except by breakriding and sacking triggers, and waiting
till LB5 is a bit too situational. You don't want to
purposely put your back against the wall when you could
be using better guarding habits. But when the stars
align and you breakride Garnet over G3 Vert after
swinging with G4 Vert, Garnet is gonna be a pain. Of
course, it could be late game, everyone's almost spent
on resources, and your opponent only has enough for a
2-pass against your vanguard when you have 3 drive
For the new kid on the block, there
actually isn't much to say about her other than
"situational." If you bother to run her at all, run 2 to
actually have a chance at the combo.
Also, don't run LB5 enablers.
