Unit of The Week: Ghoulish Despoiler

It is the right of the strong to invade without abandon.

[AUTO](VC):When placed, COST [Counter Blast (1)], Soul Charge (2), and return up to one grade 2 or less card from your soul to your hand.
[AUTO](VC):When it attacks a vanguard, if you have ten or more cards in your soul, choose one of your opponent’s rear-guards, retire it, and this unit gets [Power]+10000 until end of that battle.

Ghoulish Despoiler is one of the few original cards from Unite Team Q4. He is a Dark Irregular with the imaginary gift Protect! I really like his artwork. The art is clean and has a lot of fine details. Ghoulish Despoiler is ready to spoil your opponent’s hopes of victory!

Ghoulish Despoiler’s first skill soul charges two cards and draws a grade 2 or less card from the soul. This skill is great for building the soul. It is also an amazing skill to use the soul as a resource for cards. You can draw a Perfect Guard or a potential rear-guard from the soul. I would draw a grade 2 card from the soul because I will draw a Protect marker after riding my vanguard.

Ghoulish Despoiler’s second skill retires one of your opponent’s rear-guards, and Ghoulish Despoiler gains 10,000 power until the end of the battle. This skill requires ten cards in the soul, and this requirement is very easy to fulfill with the right cards. Furthermore, he can hit your opponent’s vanguard without needing a booster. I also suggest retiring an opponent’s grade two rear-guard to prevent it from intercepting your attack.

Finally, you can build a deck with Ghoulish Despoiler as the vanguard to control the field. Dark Irregulars have a few rear-guards with the ability to retire an opponent’s rear-guard. You are distributing your opponent’s strategy by removing their best rear-guards from the field. Flirtatious Succubus and Gwynn the Ripper are two of Dark Irregulars best rear-guards for retiring units. This strategy is very effective against Accel clans such as Aqua Force, Nova Grappler, and Pale Moon.

Overall, Ghoulish Despoiler is one of the best budget cards in the standard format. He generates offense and defense for Dark Irregulars. He soul charges two cards and draw a card from your soul. Then, he gains 10,000 power and retires an opponent’s rear-guard. Ghoulish Despoiler is a fantastic vanguard for using the soul as a resource for cards. You control the field by retiring your opponent’s rear-guard.
