Darkness that Lights Up Demise, Lacus Carina

Let us continue with Fighter's Collection stuff and thingies with Lacus Carina. When GB1 is online and you use her to defend, CB1 and flip a G Guardian and lock up to 3 of your rear-guards. For each one you lock, the opponent must lock one of their many backrow units.

Pro tip: the opponent locks their stuff without choosing, so this gets around units with Resist.

So for CB1 and a flip, you can nerf columns for basically the entire turn by locking a booster(s). But surprise surprise, it's only really useful in Messiahs, although to be fair, that's probably where there would be the most relevance. Sacrifice Messiah can suddenly be sprung without needing Demon Maxwell to make Alter Ego a 14k body for a turn. There's also some relevance defensively for rear-guards as well: you can lock your attack target to make Laurel or various flavours of Dragonic Overlord unhappy. However,utility outside of Messiahs is pretty limited, although that's a common trait with every Link Joker G-Guardian. But it's still a pain.

Useful enough and costs can be recouped with Sacrifice Messiah so you should be okay. Just be careful since this has little utility except as a first guard from a rear-guard without Sacrifice.



So this card has a lot going on. In most Link Joker decks, it's great, setting up locks and stalling out attacks without really deterring yourself. Obviously Messiah is the prime deck for this, but it works well in Glendios if you activate his skill to Omega Lock, or in Chaos to net some extra cards. However you do kinda get locked into using a way to unlock your units during your turn, which is only really beneficial in Messiah. Overall i still really like the card, it provides a powerful effect that can lock backlines down and keep them there for a turn
