Unit of The Week: Stylish Hustler

Stylish Hustler

How dare you resort to dirty tricks! I’ll punish you with this!

[AUTO](VC/RC):When your other rear-guard is retired by the ability of your opponent’s card, COST [Soul Blast (1)], and put one of those cards into your hand.
[AUTO](RC):When it attacks, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of that battle for each card in your damage zone.

Stylish Hustler has all the smooth moves to help his fellow Nova Grapplers win games. His artwork shows his flamboyant personality. This card is brand new to Cardfight!! Vanguard. He makes his debut in The Heroic Evolution. He is a member of the Hero archetype, but his skills support all decks in the clan.

Stylish Hustler’s first effect sends a rear-guard to your hand when your opponent retires it. This skill is amazing for Nova Grappler decks. It protects your resources in a unique method of adding the card to your hand. One of Nova Grappler’s weaknesses is being unable to maintain resources against control decks. Stylish Hustler solves this problem for every deck in the clan.

However, Stylish Hustler is unable to save himself from retirement. A smart opponent will retire him before retiring your other rear-guards. Your opponent bypasses his skill to save your resources. Then, he or she will being retiring your other rear-guards. Stylish Hustler has the most style on the field, but he is not the perfect card.

Stylish Hustler’s second effect gives 3,000 power for every card in your damage to him. This effect provides a strong offense to your field. He becomes a formidable rear-guard in the late game. You would have four or five damage at this point. Furthermore, he is an excellent card to place on an Accel circle. His power becomes 31,000 when you have four damage and he is on an Accel circle.

Finally, Stylish Hustler is a generic card without any restrictions to a particular archetype. I recommend testing him in many different decks. Every Nova Grappler deck benefits from this card’s abilities. Furthermore, his second effect perfectly fits in decks with the strategy to stand units in combat. Decks with Perfect Raizer want to stand a rear-guard with a lot of power.

Premium Format

Finally, Stylish Hustler is also a very good card in the premium format. Many decks in this format have the ability to retire units. His effect to regain your card after it is retired is a very important skill. Every player should consider playing at least two copies of him in a premium deck. In addition, his second effect is a good offensive skill.

Overall, Stylish Hustler is one of the best generic cards for Nova Grappler. He is a good card for both formats. I strongly recommend playing him in any Nova Grappler deck. His abilities provide excellent support to the clan. Stylish Hustler hustles with two powerful skills to defeat your opponents!
