Hello, Hello, ladies and fine gentlemen.
You are reading SO IMBA!, where we learn how to be a better card fighter.
I am your host, Rauzes, and today, we discuss Gigantic Charger.
Gigantic Charger, while being a 9k Grade 3, a number only usually seen on the weaker Grade 3s, has an extremely unique and interesting effect...
When you call or Ride this guy, you can Special Call the top card of your deck to a Rear Guard, given its a Royal Paladin.
So... you reading this right?
If you call or ride Gigantic Charger, you get an instant +1 Card Advantage in terms of fighting force on your field!
However, you have to consider... what might Gigantic Charger call?
In order to gain advantage, when you call Gigantic Charger, you ideally have 1 Side Guard and 1 Rear Guard circle open, because in any situation, its effect will be able to call an ally... somewhere.
In this ideal situation, if its effect hits a grade 0 or 1, you can call it to a back guard, and if it hits a grade 2 or 3, Left/Right guard.
However, if you think about it, if you only have 1 side guard circle open, like in late game stages, keep in mind that Gigantic Charger's effect is compulsory.
This means that while it can give you instant advantage, in the end game stage, its skill might not be the most advantageous of them all...
Because the Charger is only 9000, with no Shield or Intercept, even if the opponent leaves him on the field, his uses are highly limited.
Any 9000 Vanilla Grade 3 is completely bested by a Grade 2, Vanilla or not.
Therefore, when you call Gigantic Charger, and your deck top is actually a grade 2, you can call it to the side guard.
More importantly, to directly on top of Gigantic Charger.
Even if you call Grade 2 Gallahad or something, having intercept alone proves advantageous, and has its uses.
If you Call him when you have no open rear guard circles, you can always stick the new unit on top of an old one, retiring the old unit.
Thats all for today.
This is Rauzes, signing out.
See you tommorow, right here on So Imba.
