Looking into Doom Bringer Gryphon

Doom Bringer Gryphon
Grade 0/Boost/Kagero/High Beast/5000/10000-Guard
ACT 【R】: [Counter Blast (1) & Choose two of your «Kagero» RG, and retire them.] Search your deck for up to one card named "Dragonic Overlord The End", reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

Lose 2 cards? CB1? Sounds like Aleph and BFD superior ride, just that you don't actually get a twin drive for that turn and don't exactly get any additional benefits the other 2 offer. On the contrary, you can run it without limiting your deck-building space and it is searchable. Sounds good?

At first glance , it's not appealing because of the -1 generated from this card [-2(RG)+1(DOTE) = -1] but people seemed to forget about the advantage generated by what you call "Lizard Soldier Conroe"So, putting the two together and you'll get a starter that is something like this:


[inserts cool VG name]
Grade 0/Boost/Kagero/???/5000/10000-Guard
ACT : [Counter Blast (1), Discard 1 Kagero Unit, move this card from soul to Drop Zone.] Search your deck for up to one card named "Dragonic Overlord The End", reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

In short, it is a Stardust Trumpeter which allows you to get "Dragonic Overlord The End" at the cost of 1 CB. But instead of designing a new starter, the designers of the game decided not to take way the good Kagero starter "Lizard Runner Conroe" and instead gives you the option to waste 1 card slot in your deck to include this strategy , which is to get that extra DOTE for late game beater at the cost of taking away 1 card generated by Conroe. Not to mention deck thinning :O (which pales in comparison to Royal Paladin)

Suddenly Pongal seems godlike...

So is it worth playing in a Kagero deck running DOTE? I'm a bit iffy on this. I'll probably test this out with 1 copy
