Tick Tock Worker
So what do we have as the number one card of 2016? Well, you'd have known as soon as you saw the text with the hyperlink on the COTD page, so fuck it, so much for the dramatic tension, right? It's not anything for Seven Seas Granblue, it's nothing for the overrated Chaos Universe, it's this little bastard who for a -1 gets another attack in (not even that if Ur-watar exists) and enables some pretty bullshit situations...as long as both of you are on Grade 3. It's Tick Tock Worker! And yes, as much as running several of this is nice and all, remember you still need ride consistency and shit. Or actually yeah, go ahead, run 4. It just means more shit you can't use as I stab you with my weenie deck. What a fucking bizarre world we live in where the poor are actually doing BETTER than the people with more money than you're comfortable letting them flaunt.

Raise your hand if you didn't see this coming. Alright, here's the deal: Tick Tock broke Time Leap. Time Leap is supposed to generate more attacks; that's completely balanced. Every time you took a card and Time Lept it, it was a 1-for-1, meaning your advantage came from combo-ing your opponent's hand away, not necessarily hard-plussing yourself. Tick-Tock gave you too many free cards from Melem and Uptream, due to those cards still fetching a lower grade unit if you applied Tick Tock's effect on them. Chronojet.dek's first Stride Turn damn near wins them games every time, or puts you at 5 damage for the Nextage coming for that ass on the next turn. The only time you were safe was if: a) you stayed at 1 or 2 damage before they went into Metallica Phoenix by guarding most of the opponent's attacks early game, b) you hit a defensive trigger whilst they're throwing their low-power multi-attacks at you, and/or 3) you had first stride as a Gavrial player and got her GB2 active. People started running 2-3 Tick Tock for a reason. Even Chronofang.dek has Tick-Tock pressure, because all of the hand-stripping pieces of the combo, minus Metallica Phoenix, are vanilla. Tick Tock pushes every other Gear Chronicle starter out of the picture too, since Tick Tock is so dangerous, it's not really worth it to use Chrono Dran to make the Chronojet+Gigi row when you can just keep spamming Tick Tock. 
Melem doesn't need a ban. Neither does Upstrem or Ur-Watar. They're all 1-for-1 exchanges. Tick Tock is what breaks those cards. And that's why it's the top card released in 2016. I could insert the "lookit me I run Grade 1 blitz so I don't care about this card" rationale here, but Chronojet's got some new toys coming for his deck that won't care. We'll get to that in time.
Have a great New Year, Cardfighters!!
