Unit of The Week: Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha

And now, the future blooms. 
[CONT](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):All of your units get "[CONT](VC/RC):During your turn, if you have another unit with the same card name as this unit on your (VC) or (RC), this unit gets [Power]+5000.".
[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 rear-guards, search your deck for up to one card with the same card name as that unit, call it to (RC), shuffle your deck, and the unit called with this effect gets [Power]+2000 until end of turn.
Neo Nectar is primed to get new support with its clan being featured in Cardfight!! Vanguard G. Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha is Tokoha's main grade three in her deck. She has not rode a different grade 3 so far in Cardfight!! Vanguard G. She is the first Neo Nectar to be a RRR in a trial deck. Ahsha prefers agricultural work over training to become a great warrior. Her innocent in her artwork shows her inexperience with her weapon. She looks a bit shy to me in her photo.

Ahsha's Generation Break gives 5K power to an unit if there is another card with the same name on your vanguard circle or a rear-guard circle. The ideal formation is to have a copy of each rear-guard and Ahsha on your side of the field. Two copies of Grace Knight and Budding Maiden, Diane are a very stable and strong formation. You will two columns attacking with 30K power. Play cards such as Flower Princess of Spring's Beginning, Primavera to have two pairs of rear-guards. Primavera superior calls copies of two units on your field, but the skill costs three counter blasts. You do not have much room to work with and will be forced to play more vanilla units.

Furthermore, her stride skill sets up her Generation Break. Take advantage of this skill to superior call a copy of your best rear-guard on the field. The newly superior called unit also gains an additional 2K power until the end of your turn. Continue to use her stride skill to get two full sets of rear-guards. This skill also gives you a little hand advantage as well. You can save your cards in your hand for defense and continue to gain units from your deck.

However, Ahsha's skill is heavily based upon what you currently have on the field. Her skill does not allow you to choose any unit from your deck unlike Royal Paladins, who can superior call anything at a higher price. Be aware of what you have on the field and your opponent's clan. You will struggle against Kagero, Narukami, and other decks that retire a lot of your units every turn. If you don't have the best units on the field, then you can only call your less than stellar units.

Overall, Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha is currently the best grade 3 in Neo Nectar decks with Generation Break and Stride. Her strategy is very linear. Simply superior call your units and later you will power them up with Ahsha's Generation Break. The strategy may be linear, but you will slowly gain more advantage as the match continues. Neo Nectar has bloomed with stronger cards led by Ahsha.

Card Rating: 4 out of 5
