Unit of The Week: Chronofang Tiger

For the ideal future, any sacrifices are allowed. 
[CONT](VC) Generation Break 2:While you are paying the cost for Stride, you may have the cards you discard from hand get grade +3. If you do, bind those cards face up.
[AUTO]:[Choose a card from your hand, and bind it face up] When this unit is placed on (VC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards. Your opponent returns that unit to his or her deck, searches his or her deck for up to one card with grade -2 than that unit, calls it to (RC), and shuffles his or her deck. (Your opponent can choose not to find a card if there is none he or she wishes to call)
Gear Chronicle finally has an alternative vanguard for Chronojet Dragon. We were introduced to Chronofang Tiger in Cardfight!! Vanguard G Stride Gate. He is one of Gear Chronicle's leaders. He excels in close combat. It is a risky fighting style, but Chronofang Tiger has perfected his craft. Chronofang Tiger's skills are a Generation Break and an on ride ability.

Chronofang Tiger has a Generation Break 2 skill. Cards discarded for Stride become grade 3 units and they are bound face up. You can perform Stride at every turn after Generation Break 2 is online. Consistency is the key to every deck. Striding every turn is a huge advantage because you will always have access to triple drive. Stride Interdimensional Beast, Metallica Phoenix for your first G-unit because its skill turns a face down G-unit face up. Generation Break 2 will be online for the remainder of the match.

Support for Chronofang Tiger is pretty good so far in its short time in the game. Steam Knight, Mudar is the perfect card to play with Chronofang Tiger's skill. Stride becomes fee with both units' skills combined. Mudar can be superior called from the bind zone. Discard Mudar to pay for Stride. Then use Mudar's skill to superior call him from the bind zone.

The second skill forces your opponent to return an unit to his or her deck and he or she has the option to replace it with a unit with two grades less than the original unit. The skill has its benefits and problems. Your opponent's formation loses a lot of power in an instant. However, grade 2 units and grade 3 units can be replaced with weaker units with good skills. Many new triggers have skills. Opponents can rebound by getting a trigger with an useful skill.

Overall, Chronofang Tiger is a great vanguard for the G-era with G-units dominating the game. Players will welcome a breath of fresh air for having a new grade 3 for Gear Chronicle. The clan was lacking diversity in grade 3 units. Steam Knight, Mudar is just the first of new cards supporting Chronofang Tiger! Chronofang Tiger will only become a better card over time.

Card Rating: 4.5 out of 5
