Dragonic Overlord "The Legend"
Ah yes. This. His GB2 activates when you toss a Grade 3 Flame Dragon from your hand. He gains 1 Grade, 1 Drive check, 15k power, and a skill: once per turn, after attacking a rear-guard, you toss three cards in the hand and stand him back up. As his on-ride skill, CB1 and SB1 to search the top5 cards of your deck for a Flame Dragon, add it to your hand, then shuffle the deck.
Sorry, I just wanted to get that out my freaking system.
With that said, is it worth it? Well, as much as this gives new Nehalem 10k shield, that's about as far as it gets. It operates on "no Grade 3, no life" like Vortimer Diablo, but there's a problem. If you had a Grade 3 in your hand, would you rather toss it for a glorified +1 that late in the game, or would you Stride into either Nouvelle Vague L'Express or the Ace, which would give you more output and/or fuel Nehalem by the same amount anyway? Just about the only thing you ever use him for is the ability to add Lava Flow or Protect Orb Dragon to your hand, or emergency Grade 3s for Stride if you didn't get any.
Suppose with the right pieces, it can reach Zahm levels of boardwipe though, and soft advantage though more triggers.

HOW many forms does that make for him now?
The End
Break Ride
The Great
The "X"
The Ace
and now "The Legend"
Only Eight forms.  Quick! I need more! Bushiroad! Make more forms!  BRILLIANT!
So, when placed on V, you look at the top 5 cards for a Flame Dragon, which there are plenty Grade 2s and Grade 3s to nab, and add it to your hand.
The GB2 skill...
Who needs Stride?!  This becomes a Stride unit with its GB2 skill.  Combine with the Break Ride skill and cost, this restands and attacks again, because that's all the Overlord does!  He keeps attacking and attacking until the world is nothing but ashes!
Thankfully the cost is Dauntless Drive Dragon's cost, but...  Eh, how hard is THAT to do?
And something that flips over a G-Unit right away, plus a Limit Break Enabler, Break Ride this onto Dauntless, use the skill and...
Yeah, fun.  Vanguard, rear-guard, vanguard, all for 6 discards to get 3 attacks off.
Granted, if they have interceptors in the front line, they're going to throw all their interceptors in front of the first attack so you have no targets for the 2nd attack and lose out on the ability.
Which is why the Break Ride+Rebirth combo was so nice, but I digress.
Anyway, the only issue I have with this is, while this is amazing, and it is, I think the Ace and The X+The End can do what this does but better, especially since The X+The End can do Infinite Legion tricks.
I mean, it's not...  Wait, can this thing...  *Reads closely*  Nope, just once a turn, thought it was closer to the original Overlord, attack each rear-guard.
Too good I guess, too much critical stacking with that.
You can still mix it with Lizard Soldier, Fargo and retire a lot of rear-guards this way.
Over-all, not sure what to think.  Don't get me wrong, this is a VERY nice unit to have, just not sure how it compares to what's already in play.
Then again, restanding Vanguards with Stride power and drive checks are never a bad thing.
Only downside is that it has to be a Grade 3 Flame Dragon at GB2.
Hmm...  I like it, need to playtest with it.
