Unit of The Week: Chrono Jet Dragon


[AUTO](VC) Generation Break 2 (This ability is active if you have two or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):When this unit attacks a vanguard, until end of that battle, this unit gets [Power]+5000, and your opponent cannot call grade 1 or greater cards from hand to (GC).
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] During your turn, when your G unit Stride, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and put that unit on the bottom of your opponent's deck.

The next generation of Cardfight!! Vanguard has arrived with the new clan, Gear Chronicle. This mysterious clan came to Cray when the war against Link Joker corrupted time. Thus, Gear Chronicle found their way to Cray by chance. Now the clan has decided to teach Cray's citizens on how to safely control Stride. Gear Chronicle's leader and poster boy is Chrono Jet Dragon! He has the powers to control time and space, and he uses a combination of these abilities to perform Stride at will.

Chrono Jet Dragon's Generation Break gives 5K power to him and your opponent cannot call guard with grade 1 or greater cards from his or her hand when he attacks a vanguard. The only way to block his attacks is by guarding with grade 0 units from your hand and intercepting with grade 2 units. The skill also does not have a cost. You can go for the win in the late-game when your opponent is unable to block Chrono Jet Dragon's attack by being too low on grade one units or is out of them.

The second skill is even more interesting. You send one of your opponent's rear-guards to the bottom of his or her deck when your G unit Stride. Troublesome rear-guards will be sent packing to not cause you anymore trouble. 12K attackers and interceptors are the best choices in most situations to return to the bottom of your opponent's deck. Granblue will struggle against this skill as they rely on the drop zone to superior call units.

Furthermore, it is a good anti-Legion skill as a player cannot perform Legion with a unit that was returned to the deck. Legions that require you to Legion again to activate their main skill will be limited to two Legions per game. This skill also hurts clans that do not have very good superior calling support. It is unlikely that your opponent will be able to redraw the unit unless he or she is playing Legion.

Overall, Chrono Jet Dragon is a one of the best cards from a trial deck. Both of his skills are very useful during the mid-game and late-game. You will always be using his abilities throughout the game to keep you interacting during the game. Sending rear-guards back to the past makes them unable to perform Legion. It is great to see Bushiroad continue to develop new anti-Legion skills as no mechanic should be unstoppable. Chrono Jet Dragon is going to send you back to the past!
