Mist Phantasm Pirate King, Nightrose
Ah me, this could have been so much better. Phantasm Nightrose is the evolved form of Granblue's Stride vessel of Vampire Princess of Night Fog Nightrose (coming in a Trial deck at the same time as this, whoo). On attacking the Vanguard while GB2 is active, Counterblast 2 and G Persona Blast to revive from the drop zone two units, but they can't occupy the same row.
So CB2 to either +2 yourself, so predictably costed, or it revives an entire column to attack again. Sorry, but I'm not sold. Comparing this to Root Flare who nets a +2 to you for NO Counterblast or for soft advantage gainers like any re-standing Vanguard that net more gains for CB2, this is just poor. What's more, compared to something like Take-mikazuchi for OTT, you're calling them to the board, so their uses are already called for and set in stone. There's no flexibility.
Only real reason to use this is because she has all of those Hollow units to work with that revolve around killing themselves again so your field actually is empty. And the various flavour of counterchargers in Granblue so she isn't a total waste.
Completely unable to decently function outside of G Granblue, but sort of fits comfortably enough in it either way.

Oh look, Granblue support.  Didn't we have someone who last showed up when we did a week of Granblue Legion?
Anyway, GB2, CB2 and persona flip to call two units from the drop zone to different rows.
Obviously meant to keep from calling a really powerful rearguard line, but still allows some fun tricks with Sea Strolling Banshee and units with the Hollow ability.
So, yeah, run it.
