Holy Sword of Heavenly Law, Gurguit
 
Here's the new G4 Gurguit. I've fought in a tournament with one of these decks as an opponent today (Spring Circuit. I made finals, thanks for asking), and first impressions are a bit...eh. This Gurguit needs a CB1, a G-Zone flip and a discard from the hand. For the whole turn, all your units gain 2k for every face-up Gurguit in the G-Zone, and when the Vanguard attacks and Unite is online, you can call one card from the top 7 cards of your deck.
 
So for CB1 and a -1, 17k+ columns can kiss numbers and you can call another unit for another attack. That's going to require some clever use on your part with stuff like Scarface Lion to get a front-row empty, otherwise it's a minus to allow another attack. Crap Nova Grappler/Murakumo/Aqua Force, essentially. The whole point of this I guess, like Selfina, is to use him early to make him better later, except by then Glorious Reign or Radiant Sword Gurguit tend to be the better finisher. You rarely need to use him again. Which sucks because you sort of have to use him first if you seriously don't like Scourge Point.
 
It's probably because of the excessive discarding and minuses that come from the Unite cards, but I found this to be lukewarm. Might be the fault of the build I saw it in though, as functionally he's a good first Stride.

[Holy Sword of Heavenly Law, Gurguit] 

Holy Sword of Heavenly Law, Gurguit seems a bit redundant as far as support goes, but my Gold Pal playing friends seem pleased with him. His ACT skill bestows him an Unite AUTO skill for the battle phase that basically turns himself into Pwyll on the Vanguard circle. Second ability he gives himself is to give every unit 2k for any face-up Gurguit in your G-Zone.

Gurguit immediately screams "first Stride." Usually, Gold Pal's first Stride ends up being Scourge Point, but Scourge only handed power out to himself and whatever units were superior called that turn. Gurguit will initially give 4K to a row basically, and factoring in the power that your rearguards can give themselves, this will often makes your rows 21k or higher to force that extra bit of shield from opponent's. The potential for an extra attack is neat, and it comes earlier than Glorious Reigning Dragon can because Heavenly Law Gurguit doesn't have any GB2 restrictions. Mainly, Gurguit fills that role that cards like Altiel and G4 Rising Nova fill: a fast track to GB2 by striding once, and has a bit of weight should you have to go into him again. Glorious Reigning Dragon has the potential to refresh your rows, but if you've already got good rows and you go into Gurguit again, that's at least 8k to a whole row. Adaptability to different scenarios is always welcome. This Gurguit definitely doesn't trump G Set 7's Gurguit though, since that's still your cream of the crop. But this newest Gurguit will definitely put some pressure on the opponent until you're in a spot for your biggest gun. 

Considering future support, there may be more of a need to just start flipping G-Units over like crazy. (Looking at you, Fighters' Collection 2017. GB8 was bound to happen eventually.) Heavenly Law Gurguit definitely opens up room for different plays. Grab yourself 4; the only mandatory Strides you really had before now were G Set 7 Gurguit, Glorious Reigning Dragon, and G-Guards anyway. 

3.25/5
