[AUTO](VC) Wave-3rd time or more (This ability is active during the specified battles of each turn):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it.
This weekend now past was one for Sneak Peaks of the Aqua Force clan booster coming out this coming Friday.
I couldn't go to Sneak Peaks for various reasons so I'm going to have to see if I can get this cards for a Thavas deck at a later date because make no mistake, this is a good card and I personally would recommend it in a Thavas build but that is an opinion without any evidential reasoning behind it.
Marine General of Heveanly Silk, Aristotle, named after a famous philoshiphor, but that's not important. What is important is that as demonstrated in this card, Aqua Force has a new Key Word, that word being Wave. Wave saves text by replacing the clause "When this unit attacks, if it is the 'x' battle of that turn (or more) " with a single word (and some reminder text).
In this case Wave 3, well that's self explanatory what it means by this point. Also it says so on the card. In either case, it's a CB1 for a targeted -1 to your foe. The quality of this is differing depending on what it is you hit but you have full control over the target.
There really isn't much to say, it's just a really useful card and definitely replaces Tidal Bore in the clan's G-Zone. Well that's assuming you aren't running the one deck of the clan that doesn't really utilise the G-Zone... like at all... That deck is going to be a pain to fight,but then again, for me personally, fighting Aqua Force in general is a tough day at the office. The irony being that the one deck I just alluded to I have the best chance of turning the tides against despite the early rush.
