Fullsack Squirrel: First Thoughts

Here we have another previously revealed card that has not yet been covered on this site.  Fullsack Squirrel is one of the first Commons we saw from this set, so let’s dive in and take a look at what he brings to the table.

[AUTO](VC/RC):Success 20000 (When your rear-guard’s [Power] becomes 20000 or greater, this unit becomes successful until end of turn)
[CONT](VC/RC):If this unit is successful, this unit gets [Power]+2000.
[AUTO]:When this unit intercepts during the battle that your vanguard was attacked, this unit gets [Shield]+5000 until end of that battle.

Squirrel has Success, which is definitely a plus with Teacher’s Cane of Affection, Bigbelly running around.  Success 20k is not particularly difficult to hit but even so, this card’s first full ability confuses me.  Often, power buff skills in G Era Great Nature have been useful specifically for reaching Success thresholds.  Fullsack Squirrel has the relatively rare ability to give itself power.  However, it does not gain that power until it has already become successful, making it a bit late to most parties.  It also has the distinct disadvantage of being an 8k Grade 2, putting it 1k short of being able to make easy 20k columns with a booster and one 4k buff.

In many instances, if a unit has a lower base power than normal, this is because its ability is strong enough to make up for it.  Fullsack Squirrel does not even have that going for him.  Other than gaining 2k power, all this unit does is provide you with an extra 5k shield when it intercepts, and even that only when your Vanguard is the one being attacked.  Considering that Great Nature is a clan that often aims to retire rear guards not named “Crayon Tiger”, this unit should not even be sticking around to be able to use his underwhelming intercept skill.

All in all, it seems that there is a reason this was a Common revealed early on in this set’s spoilers.  Unless something spectacular happens later on in the set reveals, I’d say this card deserves a hard pass.
