Unit of The Week: Blaster Blade Spirit


Reach out...... my sword! To the leaders of the new generation!

[AUTO]:[Counter Blast(1)] When this card is placed on (RC) from your deck, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's grade 2 or greater rear-guards in the front row, and retire it. 
[AUTO](RC): At the end of the battle that this unit was attacked, retire this unit. 
[CONT]: This card is also a «Gold Paladin».

Blaster Blade's spirit has broken free from the the Void's grip. Now his spirit lives on in Aichi's Gold Paladin deck. Together Blaster Blade and Aichi will defeat the evil Void! Blaster Blade Spirit is a dual clan unit with a solid 10,000 power. This means that he is a Gold Paladin and Royal Paladin unit. Which clan does he work best with?

Blaster Blade Spirit is a great fit in Majesty Lord Blaster Decks. He is a better unit than Blaster Blade to use with Wingal Brave. Blaster Blade will only have 14,000 power when boosted by Wingal Brave. However, Blaster Blade Spirit will have 15,000 power when boosted by Wingal Brave. This means that Blaster Blade Spirit's attack power would be at stage 2. This requires an opponent to guard with a 10,000 shield. However, that is a lot of shield to give up when playing against Majesty Lord Blaster decks because the deck forces early pressure. 

Furthermore, his skill is very good for both Gold Paladin and Royal Paladin decks. His skill can only be activated when he is superior called on the rear guard from the deck. Many cards can easily superior call him. King of Knights Alfred and Great Silver Wolf, Garmore are the two best units to superior call Blaster Blade Spirit. Their skills give the player the option to pick an unit from the deck unlike Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel

In conclusion, Blaster Blade Spirit is a better fit in a Royal Paladin deck than a Gold Paladin deck. His status as a Blaster unit allows him to work much better with Royal Paladin support. However, he is still a decent Gold Paladin unit. Hopefully Bushiroad will create more dual clan units in the near future! 

Card Rating: 3.5 out of 5
