[ACT](VC)[1/Turn]:[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card from your G zone, and turn it face up] If you have a heart card with "Seal Dragon" in its card name, for each face up card named "Helldeity Seal Dragon, Crossorigin" in your G zone choose up to one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it. Your opponent reveals four cards from the top of his or her deck, and chooses a grade 2 card from among them for each unit put into the drop zone with this effect. Your opponent calls the chosen cards to separate open (RC), and shuffles his or her deck. If your opponent has two or more grade 2 rear-guards, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of turn.

Helldeity Seal Dragon, Crossorigin
So unfortunate. I wanted one of Kagero's worst archetypes to not suck with this. But it's more of the same crap. Crossorigin flips a card in the G-Zone face-up and counterblasts 1 and then for every face-up Crossorigin in the G-Zone, you can retire an enemy rear-guard, and then the opponent reveals the top 4 cards of their deck and calls Grade 2s among them equal to the number of units you just retired and shuffle the rest back in the deck (unlike other Seal Dragon skills, the call is not optional; if the opponent can, they must). Then if the opponent controls 2 or more Grade 2s, it gains a Critical as well.
Funny ruling. Apparently while you need a Seal Dragon heart to gain the full skill, any heart will at least allow Crossorigin to gain a crit as long as the opponent controls two Grade 2s. And bizarrely, the opponent reveals the top 4 cards still, of course calling nothing because you blew up nothing.
But a funny ruling's pretty much the only thing I like about this. It makes boosters somewhat unhappy I suppose but compared to other G-Units I can name, I'd rather Root Flare and blow something up for no CB cost, or drop the Ace. At least the potential for early Critical is nice.
If this could seal intercepting too without external help, this would be boss. As it is, Seal Dragon's won't get out of obscurity with just this.

Oh, hey, more Seal Dragon support...
That no one asked for.  Seriously, Seal Dragons aren't that good, Bushiroad.  Oh well, maybe one day.
As the first Seal Dragon, he's so powerful that he accidentally turned the Western part of the Dragon Empire, back when it and the United Sanctuary were united, into a desert.  Realizing that he was too powerful, he sealed himself far under ground to avoid doing so ever again.  Modern Seal Dragons and their abilities are derived from this guy.
So, for a CB1 and a flip, likely Persona Flip, you can retire one of your opponent's rear guards for each face up copy of Crossorigin in your G-Zone, and then do the Seal Dragon Break Ride, which we never covered, mind you, and make your opponent reveal the top four cards of his/her deck, and if there's any grade 2s there, they get called to that R zone.
If there's two or more grade 2s, this gets +1 critical.
So, it works with the theme, does retire and has a decent chance of not letting your opponent get anything out of it.
Over-all, not bad.  And if you retire boosters with the skill, well, most Grade 2s, outside of some circumstances, can't intercept from the back row, so, even better.
