Hello everyone, and welcome to SO IMBA!,

Where we learn how to be a better card fighter.

I am your host, Rauzes, and today, we will be discussing Street Bouncer!
Street bouncer is a Nova Grappler card in set 5, which has a CIP effect to rest himself and a nova grappler behind him to draw 1 card.

But is it really worth it?

Theres been somewhat a contreversy between using and not using him.

Basically, in a nutshell, it reduces one attack to your opponent in exchange for one card.

However, with this one draw, its highly unlikely your amount of shield will change very much.

at the cost of Street Bouncer, you can get one more card.

But lets look at it another way.
Instead of using it as a draw source, think of it as a way to exchange your cards.

Similar to Shout.
If you use its effect, Street Bouncer becomes a 5k Intercept, much like Nemain of Shadow Paladins.
Its effect gives Nova Grapplers more defensive draw power, something the clan as a whole is lacking in.

Playing in one at the early game gives a free card, setting up your field much faster.

Now, notice that he doesnt specify you need to rest a G1.
You can play out a G3 behind, and put Street Bouncer in front, resting both and drawing one, in the case tat you have no G1s.

The next turn, use him to intercept, then move the G3 up for some actual damage dealing

Now, with his lower power, actually having him attacked and retired doesnt mean too much. In fact, it may even be a plus, given that thats one less attack to your vanguard, preserving your hand.
This does come back to bite you if your other lines are not well constructed, as an Asura Kaiser stand with only street bouncer is rather sad.
