Unit of The Week: Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu

The sun is strong, yet gentle, and shows you the way towards a bright future. 
[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (2)] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one «Oracle Think Tank», reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.
[CONT](VC):If you have a card named "CEO Amaterasu" 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)

I pulled a RRR Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu a few months ago. Her card looks simply AWESOME! Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu is a very unique unit. As a cross ride unit she is a 13,000 attacker. This gives her a good offense and more importantly a strong defense. She can be played in a variety of Oracle Think Tank decks. She doesn't require any specific sub-clan units. She can pretty much work with all Oracle Think Tank units.

Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu is a very powerful vanguard. She is so good that a player doesn't need to ride CEO Amaterasu before riding Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu. White Hare of Inaba's skill puts an Oracle Think Tank unit into the soul, and that unit should be CEO Amaterasu. This is a major advantage. Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu can give mid game and late pressure. She is one of the few cross ride units who can pull this off.

Furthermore, her limited break skill is a good draw engine. She provides the cards that the player needs. By hitting a vanguard, the player may draw any Oracle Think Tank from the deck. A player can choose from an offense card like Silent Tom or a defense card like Battle Sister, Chocolat. Amaterasu's skill can allow a player to directly draw a perfect guard. Ride her early in the game, and you're guaranteed to trigger her limit break.

In Conclusion, Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu is a very versatile unit. She as unlimited potential. All Oracle Think Tank units enjoy her company. She can be used in a variety of decks including Battle Sisters and Tsukuyomi. Her limit break can provide a player with an offensive or defensive unit. She allows the player to stay one play ahead of the opponent.

Card Rating: 4 out of 5
