Grabs Perfect Guards and Grade 3s for Stride on ride, or
works as a free Altmile if you've eaten 3 damage.
Well, okay this deserves a bit more of an in-depth look
because this actually does some nice things. First off,
the 3k to three units is actually pretty huge as quite a
lot of the sword boys fall short of kissing the magic
numbers on their own and this helps close gaps in power
for 5k more shield to a column. The on-ride skill is
also a nice bonus as it means that he has relevance no
matter when he appears and allows for some otherwise
unsearchable Grade 3s meant for RG circle to be played.
Good card to revolve an entire deck around I guess.
Uguisumaru's on-ride ability is neat, since most of the
Tachi cards you'll be searching for are include your
countercharge PGs (Kousetsu) or Grade 3s for extra
stride fodder. Assuming you're not playing against
control, the on-stride ability will help your rearguard
columns force 15k or more shield.
gripe about this card isn't Ugu himself, but the support
around him. If you ride this guy, you're gonna need to
include other units that'll soulcharge for you, since
your G-Guards and other things need soul. In that
regard, I consider Kogitaunemaru Toku and Tsurumaru
Kuninaga to be a better boss G3 than Ugu. Tsurumaru also
functions similarly to Uguisumaru, though Tsuru only
gives 2 units 3k instead of 3.
If you prefer the on-ride search ability over the steady
soul other Grade 3s give you, give Uguisumaru a shot.
