[AUTO]:Revelation-(VC/RC) (When this unit is placed on the specified circle, look at the top card of your deck, and you may put that card into your soul. If you do, [Rest] one of your [Stand] rear-guards) [CONT](VC):You may pay "Soul Blast (3)-cards with the revelation ability" as the cost for Stride. [AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] When your G unit Stride, you may pay the cost. If you do, Soul Charge (2). If a card with the revelation ability was Soul Charge by this effect, draw a card, choose up to two of your units, and they get [Power]+4000 until end of turn.

Prime Beauty, Amaruda

Hi ho, y'all. Back again to review easily the most shafted clan this booster: Genesis. So let's look at the new ace that Bushi's trying to push.

I gotta be frank, Amaruda doesn't have too much going for her. First skill's pretty neat in case your hand sucks, but forcing deck choices for consistency sort of bites. As for the Stride skill, it's nice, but she's no Fenrir. In fact, Fenrir all-round pretty much beats this. The Superior Call compared to a random +1 has a bit more uses practically, and the soulcharge is free, so you'd only really want her for columns: to grant 4k to make two 17k+ columns hit more, or shove 8k power onto one column. But the biggest thing holding her back is the lack of means to search her. Luard had Abyssal Owl, but Amaruda has no equivalent card to make her reliable, and any deck centering around Amaruda failing to ride her is going to have a bad time.

She's not awful, but on the basis the better Revelation cards like Gelgja and Gjoll around support Fenrir better and indeed, require a Fenrir Vanguard, she works better as a backup to him rather than the other way around. Tech 2 if you run Wiseman or just use her as the backup G3 if not.

3/5

Genesis week! And what better way to kick it off than with a new Grade 3 to look at?

Amaruda takes Revelation to a new extreme, rewarding you for filling your deck with Revelation units. Not only does her stride skill trigger off of it, she can even stride for free for soulblasting 3 revelation units (why can't every clan have more free stride utility, huh?). The payoff for the stride skill is...
kinda weak compared to Fenrir, though. Fenrir at least gives 3 soul for free, and allows the option to pay for a call. here, you have to pay, and only get 2 soulcharged. The buff is nice, but the free soul was the big selling point on Fenrir. I'm guessing they just assume you'll soulcharge anything that isn't a trigger, but even then you aren't guaranteed a lot of soul.

She's good, but Fenrir should still be alongside her

3/5
