Unit of the Week - 1/20/2013

Alright, going down the list of clans, I guess this week I'll do an Oracle Think Tank unit.

Everyone's favorite (subjective) OTT vanguard, CEO Amaterasu!
(Actually, I pulled one today out of a Set 1 booster draft!)

Check top card, leave it on top.  Opponent: "Damn, it's a trigger."

The managing director of Oracle Think Tank who wears luxurious Japanese clothes. Despite her meek and gentle appearance, she possesses a rare sort of leadership and management skills, along with a certain charisma that overwhelms any who see her. To see her smile or hear words of appreciation, her employees must slave away day in, day out. The Yata no Kagami she possesses, capable of shining upon everything in this world, can emit a light of judgment at those who harm themselves.

The goddess of the sun and the CEO of the biggest enterprise "Oracle Think Tank" in Cray. She has the dignity and charisma of a high ranking god and also the caring heart that will never forget about the hard work done by her subordinates. With that, she has gained respect from both in and outside her company. Even though she did not publicise it, she has protected the Royal Paladins that were depressed over the sealing of their leader and helped the Gold Paladins from the shadows. Just like the divine tool, "Yata no Kagami", her smile is able to give out sunlight that can never be swallowed by darkness. The personification of the sun knows that there are people out there that can be saved from the light they gave out.

Oooh, she gets 2 lores.  Too bad she quits her job.  (See her crossride lore.)

Oracle Think Tank
Grade 3
[CONT](VC):During your turn, if the number of cards in your hand is four or greater, this unit gets [Power] +4000.
[AUTO](VC):At the beginning of your main phase, Soul Charge (1), look at the top card of your deck, and put that card on the top or the bottom of your deck.
[AUTO](VC/RC):[Soul Blast (8) & Counter Blast (5)] When this unit's attack hits, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw up to five cards.

This has gotta be one of the vanguard units with the best passive skills in the game.  Not broken mind you, just good.

Her first effect is continuous.  Meaning power is calculated after drive check.  If you have 2 cards in your hand or more before attacking, she'll get the 4k.  That's right, she makes a strong vanguard column, which is always good.

Her second effect allows you to soul charge (one more card till Tsuku-Stack) and look at the top card of your deck.  You can then decide to put it on the top or bottom of the deck.  By using this skill, you can plan for triggers and even increase the chance of getting triggers by rotating a non-trigger to the bottom of the deck (one more closer to stack).

Her megablast isn't too impressive but it does make opponents very sad if it works.  It works on rear guard.  To rearguard.  That's right, rear on rear violence can also trigger the megablast.  And then you draw 5, get to the stack, have hand advantage, and your opponent is pretty damn screwed.  Mind you, 8 soul and 5 open damage isn't difficult for OTT.

Oh damn, I'm 1 minute late.  It's Monday now.
