Absolute Ruler, Gluttony Dogma

Much better. Gluttony Dogma here has Engorge, and a GB2 skill that's only online when Engorged and you G Persona Blast on attack. If you eat at least 3, it gains 10k power, but for the full skill, you need to eat 5 rear-guards with the Engorge skill, which is once it finishes attacking the Vanguard, it gets to re-stand, but with a loss of one Drive Check.
So what we're looking at here is a -5 in hard advantage to make the opponent -2 at least (PG wash transaction) to block the next attack, and then you get 2 cards back. So it's a minimum of a -1 to you. Well, it would be if Gaia Emperor didn't exist, which ends up making another column to attack with and keeps you up by two cards. Outside of that deck, an Ancient Dragon deck with Tyrannobite and Iguanogorg works too.
What I like about anything that uses stuff on the field as a cost rather than the hand is that you can continue to build that up for the opponent's next turn, which gives you more staying power should you fail to kill the opponent. Also, this has the advantage of 5 Drive Checks. I mean that's sort of borked, man.
I'm all for anything generating soft advantage for cheap. Grab 4 of this for Tachikaze.


Absolute Ruler, Gluttony Dogma
I'm going to take a stab, before I look at this card, that it's Tachikaze.
Am I right?
Hey!  I'm right!
Okay, so what does Gluttony do here?
So, GB2, Persona Flip and...
I need to check up on Engorge here, but...  Eating 3 units gives it +10K for the turn and if you ate 5 units it restands with -1 Drive Check.
Easy enough to do with all the Tachikaze "oh noez! I got eated! I can go do this thing now." skills.
So, after checking, yep, you can eat all the units you want with this skill.  Which is great, because it's hungry.  Combine with some Ancient Dragons as the Heart and rear guards and, well, things get really hairy for your opponent really fast.
So, yes, this is good.
Run 4 to maximize its ability.
Rating: 4/5
Seriously, are all cards this week going to be this good?
