Unit of The Week: Psychic of Storm, Rigil

Yes, everything returns to whence they came from. 
[ACT](VC): Legion20000 "Psychic of Dust, Izaya" (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 attacks a vanguard, if this unit is Legion, and the number of cards in your soul is ten or more, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose two of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire them. Then, if the number of cards in your soul is fifteen or more, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it.
[ACT](VC)[1/Turn]:[Soul Blast (1)-card with the same name as a unit on your (VC)] Soul Charge (5).
I will never grow tired of talking about Legion. It was the best days in Cardfight!! Vanguard since the first booster sets. Dark Irregulars have a trio of psychic units with amazing abilities. Psychic of Storm, Rigil shares his Legion Mate Psychic of Dust, Izaya with Psychic of Ash, Hadar. They gather cards to the soul to lock their Legion skill's fullest potential. Some may say they are the best one two punch in the Dark Irregulars clan.

Psychic of Storm, Rigil's Legion skill retires one opposing rear-guard and can retire an additional rear-guard if you have fifteen cards or more in your soul. The skill is great to activate in the end game to crush your opponent's hopes of winning. I prefer retiring units in the front row to limit my opponent's offensive capabilities and to prevent interceptors from blocking attacks. You must be careful when trying to reach fifteen cards or more into your soul. You do not want to lose by emptying your deck.

Rigil's second skill rapidly builds your soul. You soul blast one card with the same name as one of your vanguards and soul charge 5 cards! There is always a good chance of having a required card in your soul. This second is almost automatic every turn. This ability has a lot of chemistry with Psychic of Dust, Izaya. Izaya and Doreen the Thruster gains 3K power when a card is placed in the soul. Both units gain 15K power from the skill. Izaya becomes a 24K attacker and Doreen the Thruster becomes a 21K booster in the back row.

Finally, Rigil has a great group of cards for his supporting cast. These role players give Rigil a huge advantage in games. Flag Breaker is the best Perfect Guard to play in a Psychic deck. He gives Rigil more opportunities to use his Legion skill. Decadent Succubus is a nice rear-guard to on the field. Her skill soul charges one card every time you call a Dark Irregular to a rear-guard circle.

Overall, Psychic of Storm, Rigil is a very good Legion for Dark Irregulars. The Legion skill is great in the late game. You limit your opponent's defenses by removing interceptors. His ability to retire opposing rear-guards destroys your opponent's offense in his or her front row. I want to build a Psychic deck. There are so many useful cards to use in a Psychic deck. I will probably use succubus units as they are my favorite race in Dark Irregulars. Rigil and Hadar have plenty of support to be fearsome duo.

Card Rating: 4 out of 5
