Unit of The Week: Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel Scissors

Release, King of Beasts! Salvation Roar! 
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (2) & Soul Blast (2)] Unlock all of your locked cards, and if you have five «Gold Paladin» rear-guards, this unit gets [Power]+10000/[Critical]+1 until end of turn, and at the end of that turn, Soul Charge (1), choose a card from your damage zone, and turn it face up. 
[CONT](VC):During your turn, this unit gets [Power]+1000 for each of your «Gold Paladin» rear-guards. 
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
Blond Ezel is back and better than ever! The planet Cray is in desperate need for help! The darkness is overcoming the light! Cray's mighty warriors are being REVERSED by the wicked Void. Don't let the Void conquer Cray and Earth. Fight alongside the true vanguard Blaster Blade and defeat the Void!

Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel Scissors is a great card against Link Joker decks. He completely shuts down Star-Vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon. Grand Ezel's limit break unlocks every locked unit. Every unlocked unit is now able to attack. This puts more pressure than normal against Link Joker. Star-Vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon is unable to take advantage of his second skill.

Most importantly, his limit break also grants him 10,000 power and an additional critical. Wow! Talk about punishing Link Joker players. Grand Ezel's limit break is a huge power increase. Grand Ezel can continue using this skill every turn because he can soul charge one card and turn up one card from the damage zone.

Is Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel Scissors broken? He has the cheapest cost for 10,000 power and an additional critical. He gains 15,000 power which includes the 1,000 power from each rear guard. Let's take a look at a card who gains a high amount of power. Liberator of the Round Table, Alfred gains 10,000 power from his limit break, and he is clearly stoppable. However, Alfred doesn't gain the additional critical damage. This puts Grand Ezel on another level.

In conclusion, Salvation Lion, Brand Ezel is the best unit to counter Link Joker decks. No other unit is in that discussion. Ezel unlocks units and gain enormous power. He can also turn damage face up and soul charge cards to continue to use his powerful limit break. The jokes on you Link Joker! Do you think Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel is a balanced or broken card?
