[Golden Dragon, Rising Shine
Rise and shine, Cardfighters, it's
a Gold Pally-centric week!
(Yes, I do need to be slain for
Today we have Rising Shine Dragon,
a card that screams first-stride potential. The problem
I personally have with a lot of Gold Strides is that
they're very redundant.
Rising Shine Dragon is just an
arguably better version of Cambell. You look at less
cards off the top of the deck, but you get to call two
units instead of one.
Rising Shine Dragon seems even more
redundant in the Gugrit deck because of Pwyll and
Perimore. Of course, you could say that you're not
always gonna hit Pwyll or Perimore, but then I'd argue
that you need to see a fortune teller, because your luck
is too crap.
Possibly the biggest thorn in this
guy's side is Scourge Point Dragon. Because Gugrit,
Perimore, and Pwyll will be superior calling units, most
of the time you'd rather Scourge your opponent in the
face with the power he provides, rather than relying on
an on-hit effect that you won't need 80% of the time.
Rising Shine can get you at GB2 if
you stride first, but unlike Vortex Desire, you flip up
a G-Unit if you hit, rather than when you swing.
But hey, there's room in the
G-Zone. Run him at a 1-of because you just might not get
all the units you need.
