Unit of The Week: Divergence Dragon

A dragon with two heads, can imagine two futures. 
[AUTO](VC) Generation Break 1 (This ability is active if you have one or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's grade 2 or less rear-guards, and your opponent puts that unit on the bottom of his or her deck.
[AUTO](VC):During your turn, when your G unit Stride, choose one of your vanguards, and it gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
Powerful Dragons lead the Gear Chronicles. They are the clans' most skilled manipulators of time and space. Chronojet Dragon relies on powerful allies such as the twin-headed Divergence Dragon. Each head holds special abilities. Divergence Dragon is one of two holo cards in Odyssey of the Interspatial Dragon. It is one of the few Gear Chronicle units to have a Generation Break and Stride bonus skill.

Divergence Dragon's first skill sends an opponent's grade 2 or less rear-guard to the bottom of the deck after Divergence Dragon's hits the vanguard. The skill is GB1. It is reasonable for the skill to require an attack to hit a vanguard. You may find this ability to be useful against a Legion deck. Units cannot be used for Legion if they are retired to the deck by Gear Chronicle's skills. Always send your opponent's best rear-guard to the bottom of the deck.

The Stride skill gives 5,000 power to the G-unit. The G-Unit will become a 31K attacker without a booster. It will have more than enough power to pose as a threat. Your vanguard will become a 41K attacker with a boost from Steam Rider, Burnham. Do not forget the Triple Drive! Triggers will continue to increase the G-unit's power! Your opponent will need a perfect guard or guard with many cards from his or her hand to block the attack.

Gear Chronicle does not have many good grade 3 cards to play alongside Chronojet Dragon. The clan heavily focuses on Chronojet Dragon and lacks options to play with different grade 3 units. You will need cards that work regardless which card is your vanguard. Divergence Dragon is one of the best backup cards to play with Chronojet Dragon. It has a useful Stride skill to give to the G-Unit. Its first skill is useful during battle. You will have a practical vanguard if you did not draw Chronojet Dragon.

Overall, Divergence Dragon is a decent grade 3. Both of his abilities pressure your opponent during the early stages of the game. G-units will swing with a lot of power and opponents could potentially lose a rear-guard. Divergence Dragon is currently my backup grade 3 unit in my Gear Chronicle deck. I have tested the card in my Gear Chronicle deck and Divergence Dragon had its good moments in games. Spin the wheel of time and fate with Divergence Dragon!

Card Rating: 3 out of 5
