Marine General of Heavenly Silk, Christos
Oh good, something a little better, if less interesting to talk about. Christos has a Wave 1 skill. On attacking, you CB1 to give your front row rear-guards 2k, and they gain Wave skills: if they hit the vanguard and it was the third or fourth battle, you draw a card.
So you're looking at turning Tidal Assault into an 11k so it can hit the vanguard both times, or turn High Tide Sniper into a 21k hitter for a turn, meaning more forced guard. Efficient enough, with the right setup, and forcing the opponent to guard lest you plus on the third and fourth battle is always nice, on top of Aqua Force's already decent soft advantage.
I like him. Find room for at least 1 and just sit on your better G Units afterwards.

So, what do we have here?
On first wave, when this attacks, give all rear-guards the ability to draw cards on the 3rd and 4th waves if they hit the Vanguard, plus a small power boost.
Hmm, not bad...
But compared to Lambros, just...  Meh.
I suppose if your opponent survives Lambros, this is a way to finish them off, or set yourself up for a better chance to defend.
...I'm sorry, I just can't see anything good about this compared to other Aqua Force options.

[Marine General of Heavenly Silk, Christos]

Christos has to be the first unit you swing with, and the reward is on-hit pressure from your rearguards for the third and fourth attack. Looking at the Thavas deck as an example, you'd want to swing with this first, then a Magnum Assault or Battle Siren, Adelaide since they're just gonna stand back up for the 3rd Wave and the on-hit effect. Combine it with Battle Siren, Melani, and you're looking for draw power rivaling Reverse Maelstrom+Demetrius. (Side note: In my opinion, that was one of the craziest break ride combos ever.) Naturally, giving on-hit skills to rearguards means Christos has to be your first stride, because no one's gonna let on-hit effects go through later in the game when they're at 4 damage or more. Christos is more of a scare factor, to make your opponent overguard so that your Lambros turn hits much harder.

Christos won't really mesh with Maelstrom though, because your usual board will consist of Rascal Sweeper, and he'll screw with Christos handing the front row the on-hit effects.

However, since Christos is first stride material, he faces competition from Grade 4 Thavas, who is a brilliant first stride in his own right.

Basically, use this guy if you can get the Magnum or Agelaide on board, and you know you'll have stride fodder to Lambros them in the face next turn. Otherwise, you might be better off using Grade 4 Thavas's effect to make something swing from the back row.
