[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (1) & Soul Blast (1) & Choose a face down card named "Tempest-calling Pirate King, Goauche" from your G zone, and turn it face up] When this unit is placed on (VC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to five cards from your soul, put them into your drop zone, choose the same number of cards from your drop zone as the number of cards put into your drop zone with this effect, call them to separate (RC), and those units get [Power]+1000 for each face up card in your G zone until end of turn.

Tempest-calling Pirate King, Gouache
And in contrast, here's something slightly less amazing. Gouache here needs to Counterblast 1, Soulblast 1 and G Persona Blast as soon as she hits VG circle. You then lose the rest of your soul to the drop zone, and for each card, you can revive a unit from the drop zone. Simple.
So it's rather unfortunate that what you're looking at is a skill with the potential to swarm but is reliant on some pretty key cards such as Rampage Shade, Rough Seas Banshee or King Serpent, god forbid. Oh well, Nightrose having her GB2 online sooner for the key pieces with the new Negrolily is good, and it's not a +0 wash like Maread.
Useful enough and until we get a better finisher than Phantasm Nightrose, she'll do at like 2 copies (soul is precious here).

This is another first Stride option for Granblue, even though you're gonna have to do two things for this guy to actually be reasonable as a first stride: load up your soul by using things like Rough Seas Banshee, Peter the Ghostie, and Guiding Zombie; and get some deck milling going early game with Peter and Ruin Shade/Rambling Shade. Seven Seas takes advantage of Gouach better because of the aforementioned early milling, but Nightrose can use Gouach too as long as you use Rough Seas Banshee and Ruin/Rambling Shade early. You can also leave your Grenache in the soul to soulblast when you Stride into Gouach, call him, activate Hollow, etc., but not activating Forerunner will hurt your power early-game, so it's not the best of decisions.

In general, he's a nice way to fill up a board on your first striding turn, but both Nightrose and Seven Seas haven't really had issues doing so with all the support that's already been released. I guess Cocytus needed the help? Hahaha, hipsters.
At first, I figured he's a nice alternative to G4 Nightrose in case you can't spare the 2 counterblasts for that turn. But seriously, Nightrose has such a good countercharge engine, you should be able to use her twice in one game, if need be. Thus, he's back to being mostly a dedicated first Stride.

Dedicated first Strides rarely get rated high in my book, cause you ever really need 1 or 2. Gouach also requires you to have a specific hand in Nightrose.dek. Pick up 1 or 2 copies though just for the option.
