[AUTO](VC/RC):When placed, COST [discard a card from your hand], choose one of your opponent’s rear-guards without any Cradle marker, and put a Cradle marker on it. (That unit loses its original ability, gets its [Power] reduced by its original [Power], cannot boost nor intercept, and when it is retired, you search your deck for up to one card with the same grade as that unit, reveal it and put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck) [AUTO](VC/RC):When it attacks a vanguard, COST [Counter Blast (1)], choose one of your opponent’s rear-guards with a Cradle marker on it, retire it, and this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of that battle for each grade of the chosen unit.

So this is the Gredora end result – slap on Cradle Markers, attack with one front row, retire that as the cost and then call this. And then this kills a Cradled card and powers up. So the final result being a decently meaty attack and a retire for…Counterblast 2? I mean there’s also the extra numbers, but for the most part this is clearly not meant to be a massively aggro deck – it hits too small and transactions paid here are rather bog-standard. You can use the first skill to Cradle and kill something Gredora didn’t touch, however, but for the most part you’d be better off just saving the Counterblast and just wait for the opponent to kill off whatever rear-guards they have themselves rather than you use resources to do it – they can’t use abilities, they lose all their power, and so they can’t really do anything. And if the opponent’s dumb enough to try and keep them, you soft plus from all the attacking they aren’t doing.

Use as a final push for game, because trying to spam plusses will never be as good as the soft advantage from the paralyzing of a column. Just a misconception I think I should clear up about Cradle Markers in general.
