COTW (W/C: 01/06/15): Crayon Tiger

[AUTO](RC)[1/TurnGeneration Break 1 (This ability is active if you have one or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, if this unit is boosted, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your other rear-guards, [Stand] it, it gets [Power]+4000 until end of turn, at the end of that turn, draw a card, and retire that unit. (Even if you do not pay the cost, this ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn)

YAY for Amber clones. Especially good ones, and Crayon Tiger is a good one. Similar to Binoculurs Tiger from the original BT-07 Rampage of the Beast King, Crayon Tiger when it attacks gives +4000 power to another of your units, just it's more restricted and better off for it, because while requiring GB1, CB1 and a boost, as opposed to being free like it's predecessor, Crayon Tiger doesn't just give power, which in Great Nature of course then means retiring, it also stands a resting unit so if it's high enough, it can reward you with a second pressure swing, and a draw on top. Good cards are good and Great Nature post G-BT-02 certainly has gained a few and hey, with Lambros having all the hype, their relatively cheap to build to. Even a pure G build of Great Nature has a lot of potential.

P/S: Slightly delayed due to to Towa having a day of deadness.
