So, rather unusually for a boss Grade 3, this unit actually doesn’t give you an Imaginary Gift. So if it isn’t going to give you perma-5k on some circle or a PG, the skill had better be good. And it…sort of is? Every 5 soul, you get to unlock something new for CB1 when you start the battle phase. 5 Soul? Once the opponent’s on 4 damage they’ll have to block everything. 10 soul? Throwing even an ordinary 17k column means the opponent must block for 20k. 15 soul is doable but tricky, but then Perfect Guards are sealed during that Battle Phase, effectively, and the opponent cannot use other AUTO. 20 Soul is just a bonus IF you get it, but it’s a bit too tricky to realistically shoot for.

So is that worth no Protect Gift? Eh, I dunno, but first impressions say no. Forming a full Gastille deck is tricky because it suffers from the Scharhrot problem – it needs soul, but generates none itself. So you have to pay Counterblast to generate soul, which leaves less CB to proc Gastille with.

Good as a finisher, crap at just about every other job. Run as Scharhrot’s backup maybe, or tech this, but a full deck is sadly kind of bad.
