Jesus. A Legion pair that Legion with...each other. So
yeah, makes sense to plonk them into one review. Once
they're paired up together, on attack, you Counterblast
1 and Soulblast 2 to grant up to 4 front-row units 5k
until turn's end. At the same timing, you can also
Counterblast 1 more and put 2 cards from hand to the
soul to drop 1 Drive Check, but allow the Vanguard to
stand after the battle. Both Legion skills are once per
The pair together are cool, I guess. For effectively
Counterblast 2 and a -2 to yourself, you can't make back
your advantage on any more Drive Checks but you get a
heavier Vanguard (31k minimum without triggers). The
main downside is the ease of guard and the lack of any
real pressure before 4 damage, as both attacks incur
only one check, and a savvy opponent will save a Perfect
Guard. Sword Boys are also not very good at keeping card
advantage so anything that blows up rear-guards and/or
is very aggro will make this struggle. Not that it stops
Victor Nova Grappler though.
Aggro is aggro. Not the most effective aggro but I'll
surface, a restanding Legion looks fine. Both of these
cards can act as Legion leader and mate, so there's no
bad ride, unlike a deck like Dragonic Kaiser or The X.
Though you still break even after your restand, you only
get 2 drive checks instead of 4, like Thing Saver and
Phantom Blaster Abyss would. Thus, you miss out on the
pressure of sacking a lot of triggers. To be fair
though, you still exert pressure due to Jiroutachi Toku
basically giving your Vanguard column 10k and the
rearguards 5k, so an argument can be made that you don't
need to check triggers.
since Legion and Stride require both players to be at
Grade 3, Legion is looked down upon in most cases due to
Strides shelling out more power, now that every clan has
seen their fair share of support. The Legion can fuel
the soul for you, but so can your Stride boss from the
Legion will indeed punch hard, but your Stride zone
punches harder. Even though Mikazuki Toku is a minus to
you, he's still better at closing out the game.
