[AUTO] Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):When a «Narukami» rides this unit, choose one of your vanguards, that unit gets [Power]+10000 and "[AUTO](VC):When an opponent's rear-guard is put in the drop zone by any of your card's effect, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards in the back row of the same column as the retired unit, and retire it." until end of turn.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks, if the number of cards in your opponent's damage zone is three or more, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit that doesn't belong to the came clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack.)
At the first look,this card might look simple and its skill pretty straightforward but as you combine it with other card,this card might be the most powerful break ride you ever used
This card is a must have if you make a Narukami deck especially Eradicator deck.If you use the right cards and at the right timing,this card can retire a maximum of 4 rearguards!!!.How amazing is that?
Strategies and game play:
This card's skill can be easily executed as its break ride require no cost.So,you don't have to worry about the cost being expensive or etc,the only thing you need is the right cards and your Eradicator,Electric Shaper Dragon is ready to rumble.
Combos with other cards:
Combo 1:The most common ride for this break ride unit is Eradicator, Sweep Command Dragon
I recommend you break ride sweep command when your opoonent's field is full or almost full so you can maximize the damage.When you break ride this card,the AUTO skill of this card lets you retire 1 front-row rearguard with the cost of putting a Eradicator into your soul.With this skill,not only you can retire 1 front-row rearguard(not saying also activating the break ride skill),the cost also are building up the soul for your limitbreak,which allow you to retire another front-row rearguard(and again activating the break ride skill)and what is rubbing salt to the wound is you also can draw 1 card and sweep command gains 5k power.Wonderful,huh?And if you get the timing right,4 of your opponent's rearguards is retired(if your opponent field is full).No doubt,this card is the most suitable to ride on Electric Shaper.
Combo 2:Another combo is with Demon Conquering Dragon, Dungaree "Unlimited"
This new card from the latest booster set allows you to retire your opponent's front-row rearguard when you attacks vanguard for counterblast 2 and binding top card of your deck,and what's more,this unit gets 2k for each Narukami in your bind zone,but its skill can be only used once,so the damage that can be done have been minimized because the break ride skill only lasts for 1 turn,though it balanced the 2k power plus.
Combo 3:Then,Armor Break Dragon.
This combo is simple enough.Right after your breakride this card,activate Armor Break limit break,that is retire all front-row rearguards(both you and your opponent) and break ride skill is activated sweeping out your opponent rearguards and what's more you get 10k power plus and 2 criticals,but the downside of this card,you can only activate its limit break during the main phase as its an ACT skill,so your rearguards cannot attack first.The way to counter it,if your rearguard is G2,use it to intercept during the turn before you breakride armor break
Combo 3:Eradicator,Gauntlet Buster Dragon
You can reach to a max of 6 critical with this card if you combine it with the right cards.His Limit Break is a greatest manifestation of how scary electric shaper break ride skill can be.To do tihs,first,break ride gauntlet,retire 1 of the front-row rearguard with Fiendish Sword Eradicator, Cho-Ou(any other rg that has the same skill),two rearguard will be retired,then,his Limit Break will be activated and provide him with 6k and 2 criticals.And then called another Cho-Ou(any other rg that has the same skill),and do the same and also the same thing will happened if your opponent's field is full and lastly use gautlet's skill to retire rearguard that boost your opponent's vanguard and Eradicator,Gauntlet Buster Dragon will reach a max of 26k and 6 criticals on its own.Crazy,huh?
Combo 4:In case,you break ride with another electric shaper or any other G3 Eradicator,these are the cards that still can utilize the break ride skill.
Assassin Sword Eradicator, Susei
Fiendish Sword Eradicator, Cho-Ou
Demonic Sword Eradicator, Raioh
Combo 4: These are the cards that can make a good use of your opponent's retired rearguard
Iron Blood Eradicator, Shuki
Homing Eradicator, Rochishin
Twin Gun Eradicator, Hakushou
Combo 5: Conquering Eradicator,Zuitan
This unit's skill(if attack hits vanguard.flip 1 damage and soulcharge 1) can help build the cost needed for each combo and the soulcharge help build the soul that is needed for sweep command limit break.
Ways to counteract it:
You cannot counteract it fully but you can still minimize the damage.When you see your opponent are trying to break ride,try not to call so many rearguard to the field or try to call rearguard that still can function at the back row such as :
Screamin' and Dancin' Announcer, Shout
-Base 11k power and can reach 13k easily so it can hit almost any vanguard including cross ride without any boost
-Free cost!! Its free-break ride cost make its skill is easy to execute
-Rearguard Devourer.Maximum 4 rearguards can be retired.
-Depends on the opponent's field,the fuller the field,the more damage that can be done and vice versa
-Lots of soulcharging from the field if you are using combo 2.This can lackens your attack power.(you can use 6 draw,6 critical and 4 heal to balance this).
There is only 1 version and that is Japanese version.
Artwork and aesthetics:
The artwork make it look like it is shaping electricity for the use of other units to destroy rearguards and its flavor text fits the artwork which says 'Those brave horns are the symbol of an unbreakable fighting spirit'.Nice,huh?
Overall,I give this card a 9/10 rating.
