Card Of The Week (W/C: 29th September): Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyard

[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Choose one of your rear-guards with "Dimensional Robo" in its card name, and put it into your soul] Search your deck for up to one grade 3 card with "Dimensional Robo" in its card name, ride it as [Stand], shuffle your deck, and that unit gets [Power]+4000 until end of turn.
[AUTO](VC):At the beginning of your attack step, if this unit’s [Power] is 15000 or greater, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of that battle.

When I finally decided to cover a unit from Fighter's Collection 2014, this probably wasn't the unit people would have initially thought of coming to mind. Well guess what, Goldymarg needs some love to.

I'm not joking about the Goldymarg comparison either.
Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyard is often seen as a replacement for Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyusha, and is also frequently disregarded as a deck boss. But I'd like to put forward a suggestion, with Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyusha and the know mostly forgotten Enigman Storm it's possible to push for "all crit, all the time" style gambits. It's a simple concept that make use of their respective skills, which are identical, with the exception of the power each must reach. (14000/15000)
Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyard take the best of both by having Enigman Storm's base power, (so long as the latter has Enigman Wave in the soul,) while also having the support of the Dimensional Robo power gainers, Dimensional Robo, Kaizard, Dimensional Robo, Daidriller, Dimensional Robo, Dailander, and one of the deck's 2 possible starters, Dimensional Robo, Daimagnum. This give you 13 power gainers, and if you count the promo card, Dimensional Robo, Daibarret, that's 17 power gain cards in the deck. One in your starter, meaning 16.

Note you also have 16 Triggers, so within 49 card, your power gainer draw rate should be the same as your trigger draw rate.

However, Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyard, has one trick to him that neither of his two predecessors did, for the cost of only a -1, in the form of loosing a rearguard, you get to superior ride another Grade 3, Dimensional Robo, from the deck, and that unit will get +4000 power, meaning that you can use this unit to ride more of himself or perhaps a Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyusha and have that new Vangaurd go critical.

This is a card that you run in a 12 Critical Trigger deck, the combined pressure will force your opponent to take gambles and risks they wouldn't otherwise dare, because most times they'd be sitting at 3 damage safe, except for a twin crit sack. But that isn't so when this unit gets the right support.

Not really relevant but I do also wonder it Super Dimensional Robo, Daiyard, is a reformatted Dimensional Robo, Daiheart, following the battle of Star Gate during the Reverse War. If so then Daiyard would be a reborn form of my avatar. Too many people flock to Daikaiser(s) claiming it to be their avatar, I'm not "other people."

On that note, I have this weeks post's lined up and a full plan laid out. Since last week revealed True Ultimate Dimensional Robo, Great Daikaiser as a Legion Revival unit to restore Ultimate Dimension Robo, Great Daiyusha, to being hyped, this time using another unit as his crutch. But the reveal happened on Monday, when I'd already chosen my COTW, however I wanted to cover it as I am primarily a Diemension Police player, so this week will be Dimension Police week. With me looking into how the clan has developed over time, and that means starting from the beginning.

Plans?! Bah- who am I kidding?
