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
