Interdimensional Beast, Metallica Phoenix
Here's ANOTHER G-Unit for Gear Chronicle wrapping the week up. The Phoenix has Time Leap which activates on attacking the Vanguard, flipping another G-Unit face-up to use. Which is kind of a dick move to newbies who would like to Stride a little more than ONCE A GAME, but let's pretend they don't exist. How does the Phoenix stack up?
I guess that this review is essentially me reviewing Time Leap as a mechanic, and my verdict is: it's really pretty shit. It's basically a very elaborate Murakumo in that you're only using Time Leap to save hand by using rested units to get attacks in, but you will have to call the units SOMETIME, especially if you need to Counterblast to start a Time Leap, otherwise you're just spending resources for advantage you don't even keep. Or you could just use it to chain attacks, in which case you have a gambit that Nova Grappler does except much better and without needing to take as many liberties with the deck.
In this case, yeah, it's CB-free and doesn't need to hit, so that's fine, but it's not important enough to play in bulk until Time Leap becomes better supported.

Should only really be run if you need Chronojet Dragon's GB2 early for whatever goddamn reason. 1 copy of at best.


And final card of the week is Metallica Phoenix.
Anyway, another Chronojet-centric Stride that Time Leaps a unit on attack by flipping a unit in your G-Zone face up.  Pretty nifty for various tricks, plus it doesn't rely on a Persona Flip, that's always nice.
I'd say find room in your G-Zone for this.  What you take out is up to you.
