Unit of The Week: Cracking Beast Tamer


[ACT](VC): Legion 20000 "Barking Sky Tiger" (If your opponent's vanguard is grade 3 or greater, this unit may return four cards from your drop zone into your deck once, search your deck for the specified card, and Legion)
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (2)] When this unit performs Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, Soul Charge (2), choose up to three cards from your soul, and call them to separate (RC).
[AUTO](VC):When your unit is placed on (RC) from your soul, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of turn.

Let's give a round of applause to Pale Moon's newest performer, Cracking Beast Tamer! With one crack of her whip, Beasts will submit to their mistress. Cracking Beast Tamer is just as powerful as her beauty. She is Pale Moon's first and currently only Legion unit. Her abilities use the Soul to gain advantage and power.

Cracking Beat Tamer's Legion skill continues Pale Moon's theme to superior call its members from the Soul. When she performers Legion, Counter Blast two cards in the Damage Zone and you may superior call up to three units from the Soul. The Legion skill is in perfect sync with the second skill that gives 3K power for every unit superior called from the soul to Cracking Beast Tamer. Every turn Cracking Beast Tamer should be able to attack with very high numbers in combination with her Legion ability and supportive rear guards' skills. This ability is also very useful against clans and decks that retire opponent's units because it gives the player a fresh supply of rear guards.

She is one the type of Legion that requires to perform Legion every turn to use her effect. Recycling the deck is always good for putting Triggers back into the deck. However, she can only ride in a match twice based on the Legion skill costing two Counter Blasts unless the player drive checks or damage checks a heal trigger. She needs to be in a cost effective deck. It is best to surround her with rear guards with skills that do not cost any Counter Blasts.

Finally, many rear guards have amazing chemistry with the Legion skill. Fire Juggler, Jumping Glenn, and Silver Thorn Beast Tamer, Maricica are many units that have good combo plays with the Legion skill. These units utilize to the Soul to their advantage for power and superior calling units. Skyhigh Walker is a good option for the Cracking Beast Tamer as it fuels her Legion skill.

Overall, I am very pleased in Pale Moon's one and only Legion unit at the moment. Cracking Beast Tamer's strategy to reuse Legion every turn to be able to use her skills keeps her power in check to be balanced. Most importantly both of her skills work very with many new and old Pale Moon units. However. if the player is unable to perform Legion, then he or she is stuck with a nearly vanilla vanguard. Get ready to watch the next performer, Cracking Beast Tamer!
