Unit of The Week: Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom

Now is the time to show them our resolution! Revengers, follow me! 
[AUTO] Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1)] When a «Shadow Paladin» rides this unit, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose your vanguard, and until end of turn, that unit gets [Power]+10000 and search your deck for up to one grade 2 or less «Shadow Paladin», call it to (RC), shuffle your deck, and that unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
I'm so excited! I pre-ordered Trial Deck 10: Purgatory Revenger last night and Blaster Dark Revenger along with Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom will lend me their strength! Vengeance is mine thus said Blaster Dark Revenger. Cray is looking for leaders to lead them in the war against Link Joker and the Void. Only a few brave warriors accepted the challenge, and Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom agreed to lead the Shadow Paladins alongside his faithful friend Blaster Dark Revenger!

Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom is a good and well-balanced Break Ride card. Mordred Phantom's Break Ride skill is an even zero by Break Riding a grade 3 unit and regaining one card back from the Superior Call. He doesn't give an immense power increase to his allies like Solitary Liberator, Gancelot. The Break Ride is one of the easiest to defend against because it doesn't give the Shadow Paladin player a major plus and overpowers his or her field.

Furthermore, Mordred Phantom greatly help reduces the scarifies to activate the Shadow Paladin's powerful skills. The Shadow Paladins are known for sacrificing their allies for power so they need to send more troops to battle! Superior Call Skull Witch, Nemain to use her skill to draw two cards. Activate Phantom Blaster Dragon's skill by superior calling a unit from the deck after Break Riding Phantom Blaster Dragon.

In addition, Mordred Phantom has a good partnership with Blaster Dark's various forms. Use Mordred Phantom's Break Ride skill to superior call Blaster Dark Revenger to retire an opponent's unit. Be sure to Superior Call Blaster Dark Revenger in the same column with Barrier Troop Revenger, Dorint.  However, if you're not using a Revenger deck, then Blaster Dark Spirit is a great substitution for Blaster Dark Revenger, and Blaster Dark Spirit's skill is cheaper than Blaster Dark Revenger's skill's initial cost.

In closing, Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom is a well-balanced Break Ride unit. Bushiroad's design team should really consider making more balanced Break Ride units like Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom, instead of giving massive power creep skills to many Break Ride units. His Break Skill powers up the Vanguard and recruits an ally to the battlefield. Now! Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom lead Cray's forces to battle and crush the Void!
