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 started.
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 anyway.

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 ;)
