Unit of The Week: Dragonic Overlord "The X"

The End is not over! 
[ACT](VC): Legion 22000 "Dragonic Overlord the End" (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):When this unit Legion, search your deck for up to one card with the same name as a unit in your (VC), reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a card named "Dragonic Overlord "The X"" from your hand, and discard it] At the end of the battle that this unit attacked, if the attack did not hit during that battle, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to two of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire them
Kai's Kagero deck just got a major upgrade with his new Legion, Dragonic Overlord "The X". Dragonic Overlord "The X" is the first Legion revival to be featured in a booster set. He joins forces with Kagero's legendary leader, Dragonic Overlord the End! This is a unique Legion that combines an old Legion Mate's skill with a new Legion Leader's skills. The past meets the present with new and old support combining into Kai's ultimate deck!

Kagero's dynamic Legion's skills are a pick your poison situation. If their attack hits, then the duo will stand back up for another attack or if their attack fails to hit, then you will retire two of your opponent's rear-guards. Either way you are going to gain a nice advantage over your opponent. It is also possible to activate both skills in the same turn if you have copies of The X and The End in your hand when the first attack hits and the second attack is successfully blocked.

Furthermore, the Legion skill's sole purpose is to search for either The X or The End to fuel The X's main skill. This removes any need to add searchers to the deck because this skill is free. It also gives a plus four when you are able to attack twice because you do not need to depend on the Twin Drive to find extra copies of the vanguards.

Finally, The X's and The End's supporting cast consist of classic units and a few newer units as well. The majority of the support will not use counter blasts because you want to save them for the vanguards' skills. Dragon Knight Nehalem and Burning Horn Dragon are two of the deck's front row attackers and Flame of Promise, Aermo is the Legion's booster.  Bellicosity Dragon is one of the best cards for this Legion as it turns damage face up in the damage zone to be able to use the vanguards' skills more in the match.

Overall, Dragonic Overlord "The X" is by far the best Legion revival to date. Bushiroad continues to support one of the game's all-time favorite cards. The X perfectly compliments The End with its ability to search for copies of each other and using their skills in perfect sync. You will put fear into your opponents' eyes when they realize they are in a no win situation at the hands of Kagero's leader. Dragonic Overlord the End is never going to end!
