as Blazing Burst (4th Stride, if the opponent actually
lived that long), you get to +3-5 overall, and clean up
an otherwise poor field for something better. Otherwise,
this is one of those cards that looks unbalanced but is
actually pretty fair. It's ACT, so there's no way to
spam multi-attacks with it, there are few viable targets
left for his timing, and it takes its use towards
decking out in a clan built around thinning a deck.
