Since this skill activates during the stride step, between the ride phase and the main phase, the rearguards that will act as targets for Aasha's skill have to be called on the turn before in order for the skill to be used. Aasha's timing is sensitive, similar to the Vortimer evolution line from two years ago. The reward for setting up her skill is significant; Aasha's generation break 2 gives every unit on the field a skill that it gets +5000 power if there is another unit in play with the same name, so that with three Aashas in play and three of the same 7000-power booster, every column will have 28000 power. With Aasha's on-stride skill and the new first vanguard Oz's generation break 1, searching out copies of boosting units is easy, but the problem comes in when trying to search for cards whose grade is greater than 2. In many situations, Neo Nectar fighters will have to concede to only having two matching grade 2 rearguards with 26~28000 power, while the center lane will vary between 18000 and 23000 power.
Resist skill will protect those columns, because Route Flare does not target the units with Resist specifically.
According to those that attended the event, the grade 4 for Flower Maiden of Purity is similar to Gablade and Vict Ten from past sets, a G unit with an on-hit skill. Neo Nectar's unnamed stride can superior call a copy of any rearguard on the field from the deck when its attack hits a vanguard.
Daybreak's -1 in card advantage is offset by forcing the opponent to expend additional shield on each attack, and gives a trigger recycling option outside of using legion support. Stands synergize strongly with the massive power boosts from Aasha and Daybreak, especially with Neo Nectar receiving more options for building card advantage over time that help the deck become independent of reliance on draw triggers.
Padmini will see her formal release in Flower Maiden of Purity, and like her predecessors Steam Breath and Cecilus in G-BT01, may also see a reprint in the accompanying booster set G-BT02: Flying Flowers.
