Unit of The Week: Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha

Turn your wistful emotions into the strength for tomorrow. 
Bloom-[AUTO](VC) Generation Break 2:When your other unit with the same card name as this unit is placed on (RC), Counter Charge (1)/Soul Charge (1).
[AUTO](VC):At the end of each turn, choose a card from your hand, and you may call it to (RC).
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Soul Blast (1)] When your G unit Stride during your turn, 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 "Boost" until end of turn.
Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha is one of the RRR cards from TRY3 Next. I was lucky enough to pull one from my booster box. I always seem to get the best cards in every booster box. Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha is arguably the best card in the set. All of her skills work in perfect harmony. Two full sets of Ahsha give more consistency to decks with Ranunculus vanguards and units that support Ranunculus.

First, Ahsha starts with a Bloom ability. It is very useful when you need to build the soul for your G-Units and the counter charge is a nice touch. I would not use this ability very often unless I needed extra resources for skills. I want to keep extra grade three cards in my hand to discard for Stride. Do not expect to use this skill very often. It is here if you need more resources for the Stride skill.

Secondly, more preparations are made for Ahsha's Stride skill. The second skill calls a card from your hand to the field at the end of each turn. This skill can be used at the end of your opponent's turn. You basically are setting up your next turn. You will have a unit to clone on the field with Ahsha's third skill. The best option is to call a unit with the Bloom ability. More amazing combos will be available for you,

Thirdly, your new unit from your second skill is ready to be cloned with units from the deck. The third skill is a Stride skill and superior calls or clones a unit on the field. This skill is very similar to Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha's skill. Copy a unit with the Bloom ability to trigger Bloom and increase your formation's power. You must pay one counter blast and soul blast to activate the skill. The requirements are almost meaningless. Ranunculus decks do not heavily depend on counter blasts.
Finally, Neo Nectar has many new and old cards that perfectly Bloom. I am currently playing a lineup of Greenshot Elf and Osmanthus Maiden, Anelma for my grade 2 units. Anelma is the better card. Her Bloom ability gives 2,000 power to three units of your choice. Anelma also gains boost if a unit with Ranunculus in its name is your vanguard! Greenshot Elf is slightly different. Her Bloom ability only gives 2,000 power to units with the same name. She is a decent card if you are on a budget or do not want to spend a lot of money on individual cards.

Overall, Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha is a perfect alternative option for Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha. You cannot go wrong with either vanguard. Both cards generation advantages on every turn that you stride your G-Unit. Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha is slightly better because all of her skills support each other. Each skill sets up the next skill. Bloom to victory with Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha!
