Unit of The Week: True Eradicator, Aconitum Linchu

Why you’re being erased? It’s because you looked down on me.

[Stride]-Stride Step-[Choose one or more cards with the sum of their grades being 3 or greater from your hand, and discard them] Stride this card on your (VC) from face down.
[ACT](VC):[1/Turn]:[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card from your G zone with the same card name as this unit, and turn it face up, choose one of your rear-guards with “Eradicator” in its card name, and put it into your soul] If you have a heart card with “Eradicator” in its card name, your opponent chooses two of his or her rear-guards for each face up card in your G zone, and retires them. Then, if your opponent has no rear-guards, you draw a card.

I always believed Linchu would become a fantastic card. He started as a forerunner named Ambush Dragon Eradicator, Linchu. He grew up to become the True Eradicator, Aconitum Linchu. Never look down on the little guy. His potential became a reality, and Linchu has reached amazing heights by reaching his full potential.

True Eradicator, Aconitum Linchu’s skill retires two of your opponent’s rear-guards for each face up card in your G zone. Then, you may draw a card if your opponent does not have any rear-guards. He can retire two of your opponent’s rear-guards for during your first Stride. You may want to use his skill twice in a game if your opponent is playing a deck such as Royal Paladins and Gold Paladins. Those decks can quickly replenish their rear-guards. You can retire all of your opponent’s rear-guards if you have at least three cards face up in your G zone.

Furthermore, True Eradicator, Aconitum Linchu has synergy with many Eradicator rear-guards. Many Eradicators gain power or special abilities after you retire your opponent’s rear-guards. I would focus on rear-guards with skills to gain power for more offense. Homing Eradicator, Rochishin and Steel-blooded Eradicator, Shuki are fantastic rear-guards for gaining huge amounts of power after retiring opponents’ rear-guards. You would have a strong formation that is difficult to defend against.

Fortunately, Eradicators have many classic units with Limit Break for hearts and only one unit from the G-era. The best heart is Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant “Sigma”, but Linchu cannot benefit from all of effects. He will only gain 10,000 power from the skill. The increase in power is useful in the Premium format with higher shields. Linchu will have a greater chance at breaking through your opponent’s shield.

Play these cards with Linchu!
  • Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant “Sigma”
  • Homing Eradicator, Rochishin
  • Steel-blooded Eradicator, Shuki

Overall, True Eradicator, Aconitum Linchu is a good starting G-Unit for Eradicators. He excites his fellow Eradicators with his power of thunder! First, he forces your opponent to retire of his or her useful rear-guards from the field. Secondly, he provides early pressure and has synergy with many Eradicators with his ability massively retire an opponent’s rear-guards. I recommend playing a full set as you may want to use his skill twice against decks with skills to generate a strong in a single turn.

Card Rating: 3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
