One Steeped in Sin, Scharhot
Generation Rare time! New Scharhot here needs to have
Generation Break 2 active and Darkness must be
fulfilled, but upon attacking, you can Counterblast 1,
and doing that will immediately absorb all your
rear-guards to the soul, give him 10k until end of
battle, then if you have 10+ soul, all of the opponent's
rear-guards are retired. Then if you have 15+ soul, the
opponent cannot use Sentinel units to guard the attack.
I wouldn't say that as far as guard sealing goes, this
isn't comparable to Gilles de Rais. They have completely
different functions. As a finisher, no contest, Gilles
wins every time. But if you need anything REALLY
problematic dead, then you go into this. Even then
that's like only if there's TWO problem cards as G3
Scharhot should have murdered the problem before it
Other problem apart from lack of Critical float is that
this has to attack last for the most mileage, and
there's nowhere to pass triggers to other than himself,
so if they're savvy enough to make you only wash in RG
loss by intercepting or block it off, then you are
losing out. At least it isn't Revvon or something since
they can't just PG you then break for lunch.
Only has one niche use so this should be used at a lot
of copies. It seems too pricey for that to be practical

In case this card's art wasn't enough indication, this
card is the big daddy of G Set 8. At first I wasn't
excited, because Dark Irregulars already have a Glory
clone. But instead of gaining a crit, Scharhot is a
walking board wipe. (Reminder: global effects get around
Resist units because global effects like Scharhot's
don't use the word "choose.") It gets even better cause
the Sentinel blocking skill is attached to having 15
soul, and the board wipe is attached to just having 10!
10 soul is a cakewalk for Dark Irregulars.
Putting all your rearguards into your soul when G4
Scharhot attacks is part of the effect, not the cost;
therefore, if retire and lock decks rob you of a field,
you still use the effect even if you have zero
rearguards. And let's be honest: since their
introduction with Amon at the forefront, Dark Irregulars
barely ever cared about their rearguards anyway.
Furthermore, Scharhot's skill checks how many cards you
have in the soul after you shove your rearguards into
the soul, so your field could be the last little pieces
you need to reach 10-15 soul.
There's only a few decks out now that aren't scared of a
board wipe. Get at least 2 of G4 Scharhot if you call
yourself a Dark Irregular player. Aqua Force is getting
support in G Set 9, and someone's gonna have to put them
in check ;)
