Emperor Dragon, Gaia Emperor
So we're continuing with THE RECKLESS RAMPAGE with a double bill on Friday. And starting us off is Tachikaze's Stride bearer, Gaia Emperor. He has the Engorge skill, which eats one or more rear-guards on attack. And once he's Engorged and GB2 is live, he gains 5k + 1 Critical. And for his Stride skill, CB1 to call up to two from the hand, then choose up to two rear-guards, and then they gain a skill: if they get retired, they get called back to rear-guard.
GB2? Not interesting, moving on. It's the Stride skill you want: packing the Altmile clause of not needing the perfect field right away is a big plus. It's there to allow chain attacks for a turn with Engorge, sacking off units that attacked and getting them back, best combined with something with punch like Gluttony Dogma.
One downside is that a deck revolving around Gaia Emperor has no actually good fail-con in case you cannot draw or search him, but then when has that ever stopped Messiahs. Actually, scratch that. The G Support isn't as good as Messiahs owing to a lack of maintainable hard advantage without Gaia Emperor to get it all back. At least Amnesty has cards like Neutron Star and Sacrifice Messiah.
Not to say this is bad. In fact, when ridden, he basically wrecks. Or REX? See what I...nah, I know. It sucked.

Department of Redundancy is Redundant.
Anyway, Gaia Emperor goes "OM NOM NOM NOM!" when he attacks, if he does so, at GB2, he gets the standard +5K/+1 crit power boosts.
As the Break Stride ability, he gets to pull an Altmile, save that there's also two units you have in play could easily die and then they come back to play.
Add in any abilities that work on retire for Tachikaze and this is a nice advantage engine going for just one counterblast.
I do think that the Legion decks are better, but not so much so that if you don't have the Legion Tachikaze stuff yet that you should run out and pour all your money into it.  This works pretty good for what it does.
There's plenty of combos with this card.  The five or so Tachikaze players out there know exactly what I'm talking about.
Rating: 3.5/5
FYI, that was sarcasm. Gotta make sure not to offend anyone in this day and age since everything is offensive to everyone it seems like.
