Unit of The Week: Holy Disaster Dragon

Burst, the holy lightning! Holy Charging Thunder! 
[AUTO](VC/RC):[Choose a «Royal Paladin» from your hand, and discard it] When this unit attacks, you may pay the cost. If you do, this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of that battle.
The holy knights, Royal Paladins have a holy disaster on their hands! Their disaster will bring fear into their opponents. Even the Void will avoid this disaster! The Royal Paladin's disaster is none other than the Holy Disaster Dragon! Holy and disaster put together in a name! Talk about an oxymoron!

Wow! Holy Disaster Dragon's attack power can reach high numbers! He gains 5,000 power from his skill with a cost of discarding a card. Holy Disaster Dragon's power becomes 34,000 combined with his skill, Soul Saver Dragon's soul blast and Toypugal's skill. Holy Disaster Dragon is able to reach higher stages than Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes. Palamedes would only have 32,000 attack power under the same conditions, and a 13k vanguard only needs 20,000 shield to defend against the attack. Holy Disaster Dragon forces a 13k vanguard to defend with 25,000 power.

However, Holy Disaster Dragon's skill is very powerful at a high price. Hand advantage is very important in Cardfight!! Vanguard. His skill may not always be available or wise to use during the late game. You want to make sure you have enough cards defend yourself and replenish your field. Use his skill with some condition.

In conclusion, Holy Disaster Dragon is a very powerful card. His attack power gives a lot of pressure during the late game. The high powered attacks can be difficult to defend against. However, one must be careful when activating his skill. A player must be sure that he or she has enough cards available to discard. Holy Disaster Dragon is a fun card to play with. You just have to use his skill sparingly.

Card Rating: 3 out of 5
