Unit of The Week: Leading Jewel Knight, Salome

Come forth, my comrades! Praying Flash! 
[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):When this unit attacks, if the number of rear-guards you have with "Jewel Knight" in its card name is four or more, this unit gets [Power]+2000/[Critical]+1 until end of that battle.
[ACT](VC):[Counter Blast (2)-card with "Jewel Knight" in its card name] Search your deck for up to one card with "Jewel Knight" in its card name, call it to (RC), and shuffle your deck.
The Jewel Knights are the proud warriors from the Royal Paladin clan. They've become the new leaders of the Royal Paladins since King Alfred assigned himself along with many former Royal Paladins to the Gold Paladin clan. Salome was appointed to be the new light in the Royal Paladin clan!

Feel the Jewel Knights' leader's limit break! Well, let's slowdown. Salome's limit break alone isn't a big threat. However, her limit break can become problematic when she break rides above Pure of Heart Jewel Knight Ashlei! Salome will have 22,000 power and 2 critical during the break ride turn. Everyone's favorite dog Toypugal can give an additional 9,000 power boost to make her total power 31,000! Now she is more of a threat and forces an opponent to use a perfect guard.

Furthermore, her second skill helps her achieve her limit break. She can superior call one Jewel Knight unit to the rear guard. Any Jewel Knight can be superior call regardless of the unit's grade. A player can either go for a strong attacker or a very good booster.

Unfortunately, her skills only work with Jewel Knights especially a in a deck build around herself. A player can't splash her into any deck. She needs Jewel Knights or she will be very useless. This is pretty sad seeing that she is a Royal Paladin and their theme is social solidarity. This can be very contradicting.

In conclusion, the Jewel Knight's leader Salome needs a deck built around her. She works well with her comrades. She continues the Royal Paladins' social solidarity team with her limit break skill by gaining power and critical damage when battling aside her fellow Jewel Knights.
