Rikudo Stealth Dragon, Gounrakan
We only need to get through this one week, and then we can start on G-BT07! Let's hang tough, people! So starting off the week is Rikudo Stealth Dragon, Gounrakan. When he appears on VG circle, your opponent chooses two of their rear-guards, and then they bind all of their other rear-guards. If forced to bind three, they immediately lose two of them to the drop zone. And as usual, the bound cards return to the hand at the end of the turn.
Technically not a total board-kill because it only gets to kill off threats if the board is full, and the opponent can just spare the most important stuff you want dead, but it's nice to combine with cards like Kuroko and Agitomaru for pressure and if successful gets something nasty out your hair.
A nice enough alternative first Stride to fight dat Neo Nectar I guess, but most of the time you'll want the other option. Don't feel that this is a 4 of card.


Rikudo Stealth Dragon, Gounrakan
So what do we get with our Nubatama Stride to start the week?
An on-stride, no need to flip anything, unit that binds up to three of your opponent's rear guards...  And if you bind three of them, they have to immediately send two to the drop zone?
That...  That's pretty good.
As usual, if they have any units put into the bind zone by the Nubatama skill, then they go back to the hand if they're still there at the end of the turn.
Only thing that would make this better is if  your opponent had to discard a card at the same time of sending two bound units to the drop zone.
But that would be TOO good, I think.
Rating: 4/5

This unit is good as a 1-or 2-of for the matchups against superior call-heavy decks, Nova Grapplers, and Aqua Force. He binds the board like Kabukicongo did back in 2014, with the added benefit of getting rid of 2 cards permanently if the opponent had a full board. You have Shiranui's crit to replace the soul that you lost, and Fuuki if the situation's worth using his effect. Call Kamojigusa if you need that third retire, and you'll rustle your opponent's jimmies, even if just a little bit. And let's not forget Kokujyo, cause he'll love the buffs.

It's nice that this guy came out, because if you weren't running Kabukicongo, you couldn't mess with your opponent's whole field in your Nubatama deck.
