Star-Vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon – #V-SS07/043EN (RRR)
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale: 1 is awful. 3 is average. 5 is great.
So, like Gastille, Chaos Breaker Dragon doesn’t get an Imaginary Gift…or so you thought. But, you can get some through some really weird interactions with the opponent. So let’s break it down. 10k if the opponent has a locked card. Pretty ordinary. Once per turn, you can lock an opponent’s unit, but then…the opponent gets a Force Gift? Apparently so. Keep in mind that whatever Force Gift they choose, 1 or 2, that’s the one they commit to for the rest of the fight. Then when the unit unlocks, Soulblast 1 to retire it then draw a card. So basically the old Chaos Breaker except souped up a bit…But it also takes two of the opponent’s Accel, Force or Protect circles or Gifts from the hand, and then you get a Force Gift for each one removed (you don’t have to choose the same kind as the opponent, but again, once you pick one, you commit to it for the remainder of the fight).
Firstt skill, lane maker without Force. Necessary if a bit boring. Second skill, not attractive at first since making one lane stronger can at times undermine the shield you intended to save through locking the opponent’s front row, but that’s what the newly released Star-Vader Craving Claw is for – to lock the unit that has the Force Gift. Third skill is a +2 to you through Soulblast 1, which is efficient, and it gets you the Gifts Chaos Breaker otherwise lacks.
As far as making a deck for it goes, it’s doable with the other 2 Star-Vaders, but don’t expect the G-Era level Lock shenanigans (although you could probably take this to Premium and have lots of fun with it). Certainly if you’d much rather have Messiah’s multi-attack, that’s more power to you, and to be honest I suspect that it would in the long run be better, because Locking isn’t by nature an OFFENSIVE mechanic.
Nice for trolling but I suspect Messiah is the better build. I haven’t gone to shops in months though, so I wouldn’t know.
