Unit of The Week: Bisection Star-vader, Zirconium

Your heart will shatter, in a way that you’ll never recover from.

[AUTO](VC/RC):When placed, if you have a vanguard with “Star-vader” in its card name, COST [Counter Blast (1)], your opponent looks at the top card of his or her deck, and puts it on an open (RC) as a locked card. If that locked card was placed in the back row, you draw a card, and this unit gets [Power]+10000 until end of turn.
[CONT](RC):If your opponent’s vanguard is grade 3 or greater, and he or she has a locked card, all of your vanguards’ original [Critical] become two.

The Star-vaders invade the V-Standard Format! Chaos Breaker leads the invasion with his new soldiers! One of these new soldiers is Bisection Star-vader, Zirconium. This unit has two powerful abilities. These abilities provide major advantages to Star-vaders in the V-Standard Format and Premium Format.

First Ability:

Bisection Star-vader, Zirconium forces the opponent to lock the top card of his or her deck. This ability has many advantages. It sets up Star-vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon’s ability. Furthermore, the opponent loses access to a circle because a locked card does not have value.

In addition, you can gain a free card from this ability. Bisection Star-vader, Zirconium allows you to draw a card if the opponent places the locked card in the back row. The full benefits of this ability require perfect timing. The opponent needs two rear-guards in the front row to set up the extra draw.

Second Ability:

Bisection Star-vader, Zirconium changes your vanguard’s original critical to two if the opponent has a locked card. This ability complements Star-vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon. You pressure the opponent to commit cards for blocking your vanguard’s attack. Star-vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon can deal two damage with a single hit. You would near victory if your attack is successful.
