[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage): When this unit's drive check reveals a grade 1 or greater card with "Beast Deity" in its card name, choose one of your źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards, and [Stand] it.
[CONT](VC): If you have a card named "Beast Deity, Ethics Buster" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+2000.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
The strongest.The name suits the card itself.Having only one active skill which is his limit break doesn't make this card look weak as the saying ' quality is more important than quantity'.
This card is a must in a Nova Grappler deck,specifically Beast Deity.This card is a new card from the latest booster 13 BT13:Catastrophic Outbreak.What's more,this card is cross-break ride card which means when you cross ride this card and at the same time,you also break ride this card.And with the right cards,its like you are using Mr. Invincible's megablast but of course with a much cheaper cost.
Strategies and game play:
First of all,this card's drive check will NEVER fails you.This is because its limit break which is
[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage): When this unit's drive check reveals a grade 1 or greater card with "Beast Deity" in its card name, choose one of your źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards, and [Stand] it will only gets you one of these two things or if you're lucky both : triggers(draw,heal,crit or stand) or the ability to stand one or more of your Nova Grappler rearguards.How cool is that?So with this card,your drive check will never have a down-side.
Combos with other cards:
Combo 1:As this card a cross-break ride card,the first combo will be its break ride unit which is Beast Deity, Ethics Buster
This card break ride skill which is [AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, [Stand] all of your źNova Grappler╗ rear-guards in your front row." until end of turn. can automatically stand your front-row rearguards when your attacking your opponent vanguard,so you can use its Limit Break to stand your back-row rearguard and you can attack your opponent all over again.
Combo 2:These are the cards that will provide you additional stands when their boosted unit's attack or the unit's attack hits vanguard.
Beast Deity, White Tiger
Beast Deity, Blank Marsh
Beast Deity, Brainie Papio
Combo 3:This combo is with the cards that will have their skill activated only when they are stood up.
Beast Deity, Night Jackal
Beast Deity, Golden Anglet
Beast Deity, Yamatano Drake
You can choose Night Jackal as your starting vanguard of your Nova Grappler deck. With this card,you can have a 8k booster as this card gains 3k power when it stood up,so it perfectly fits with the combo with Beast Deity, Ethics Buster.You cross-break ride Ethics Buster Extreme on Ethics Buster, so when you're attacking your opponent vanguard,the break ride skill allows you to stand-up your front-row rearguard and when you drive check and get stand trigger or get G1 or greater consequently activate the Limit Break you can use it to stand-up Jackal and you can attack back with 3k power addition.Your opponent will have problem with guarding your attacks.And for golden anglet and yamatano drake they are just grade 2 & 3 version of this skill.You also can use Ethics Buster Extreme and Ethics Buster combo with these two cards.
Beast Deity, Riot Horn
Aside of night jackal,you also can choose this card as your starting vanguard.I prefer this card than night jackal.That is because this card will automatically stand itself when another rearguard that share the same column with riot horn stands up so you need only just one Ethics Buster Extreme limit break or Ethics Buster break ride skill and you can stand up two of your rearguards instead of one.So,I recommend having Golden Anglet and Yamatano Drake in front of Riot Horn so when you stand up one of these two,Riot Horn will stand up too and you can attack back all over again but this time with 3k power addition.
Beast Deity, Max Beat
With Max Beat,you can stand up two of your rearguards as its skill allows you to stand up another of your rearguards when Max Beat is stood up for just only one CB.That's cheap.So,its skill pretty much the same with Riot Horn.
Ways to counteract it:
-Keeps on attacking you opponent's rearguards.Units like max beat and brainie papio could deliver some serious problems if they are stood up,so keep an eye on them.
-Keep your opponent's damage at 3 and hope for a deck-out.
-Base 11k power and can reach 13k when its cross-ride.
-Free cost!! Its free-limit break cost make its skill is easy to execute
-It's like using Mr. Invincible megablast and in best-case senario,all rearguards can be stood up if you have the right cards.
-His drive check will only gets you two things,either triggers or gets to stand your rearguards and if you're lucky both.
-Almost all the combos that I stated above mostly are combos with the rearguards,so rearguards-retiring skill clans like Narukami or Kagero will cause problems to these combos.Link Joker also will cause problems too but not bad as Narukami or Kagero will cause.
-It's also luck dependent.This is because when you're checking the twin drive trigger and you're opponent use perfect guard,its possible that you got both triggers and no stand for example double crit and give them to your rearguards will be a waste as they are in rest cause you expect to stand them up with the limit break so the trigger will still be a waste as giving the triggers to vanguard also would not work cause your opponent use perfect guard.So the trigger line up should be the traditional one(4 heal,4 draw,4 crit and 4 stand or maybe 3 crit and 5 stand,its your choice)
This card is a new card from the latest booster 13 BT13:Catastrophic Outbreak so there is only 1 version and that is Japanese version.
Artwork and aesthetics:
I like the artwork.It looks like an upgraded form of Ethics Buster and his pose shows that he is in the middle of battle.Being the strongest,what do you expect?
Overall,I give this card a 9/10 rating.
