COTW - WC 06/04/2015: Extreme Battler, Sazander

[AUTO](RC) Generation Break 1 (This ability is active if you have one or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):When this unit [Stand] due to an effect from one of your cards, this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.

When a Common is worthy of being a RR, but I'm incredibly thankful it isn't. From Generation Booster Tech 01, Generation Stride, it's Nova Grappler's turn in the spot light, with a cards then when released it was so broken it needed an errata.

By broken I mean it was unusable. (See picture left) However, having been corrected, Extreme Battler, Sazanda is now an easy staple in almost any Nova Grappler deck, his skill, which gives him +5000 power whenever he stands via card affect makes him an extreme pressure unit in the deck, and there a lot of other unit in the deck that can stand your Rearguard.

What this unit really is, is a non archetype restricted Mars Blaukluger, and that WAS a RR. Extreme Battler, Sazanda is a full improvement by being usable in every deck and not having a Counterblast cost, the trade off is being restricted by Generation Break 1. But unless the opponent doesn't ride to Grade 3, is that really even a Restriction?
