Unit of The Week: Blaster Dark


Determination is the sword of darkness. Thunder forth, Blaster Dark! 
[CONT](VC):If you have a card named "Blaster Javelin" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+1000.  
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (2)] When this unit is placed on (VC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it.
On the King's left stands the warrior of light Blaster Blade, and on the king's right stands the warrior of darkness Blaster Dark! The darkness will conquer the light! Raise my avatar, Blaster Dark! Blaster Dark has the honor to be this week's Unit of The Week!

Blaster Dark is a respectable vanguard. With Blaster Javelin, in the soul Blaster Dark has a high early game defense. He can prevent cards like Wingal Brave from activating their on-hit skills.

Blaster Dark's down side is his second skill's limitation. Unlike Blaster Blade, Blaster Dark's second skill can only be used as the Vanguard. On the other hand Blaster Blade's retire skill can be used as a vanguard or rear guard. However, Blaster Blade's rear guard skill is limited to the opponent's front row and grade 2 and grade 3 units. Blaster Dark's lack of a rear guard skill lowers his value as a rear guard for most purposes.

However, Blaster Dark is a key unit for Majesty Lord Blaster. A good player wants Blaster Dark as a rear guard to activate Majesty Lord Blaster's skills. Blaster Dark and Blaster Blade are the fuel to Majesty Lord Blaster's ultimate powers!

In conclusion, Blaster Dark is a powerful vanguard. However, he is a very disappointing rear guard unit. As a rear guard unit, Blaster Dark is a vanilla 9000 power unit. His main purpose as a rear guard is to activate Majesty Lord Blaster's skills.

Card Rating: 2.5 out of 5
