Unit of The Week: Silver Thorn Dragon Queen, Luquier Reverse

Be reversed. You're already, my servant. 
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose one of your «Pale Moon» rear-guards, and lock it] Choose a «Pale Moon» from your soul, call it to (RC), and that unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn. (The locked card is turned face down, and cannot do anything. It turns face up at the end of the owner's turn.)
[CONT](VC): If you have a card named "Silver Thorn Dragon Tamer, Luquier" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+2000.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
Bow down to the queen of Pale Moon clan! She is the leading performer in a wonderful act of death. Her performance of death will continue eternally! Silver Thorn Dragon Queen, Luquier Reverse is the second Reverse unit to make an appearance in the anime. Link Joker and the Void quickly snatched Luquier as their first victim of becoming Reverse.

Silver Thorn Dragon Queen, Luquier Reverse's Limit Break locks a unit and superior calls another unit from the Soul with an additional 5,000 power. Her Limit Break is at its best when performing combos with units who have skills that activate when they are superior called from the Soul. Jumping Glenn is an excellent card alongside Luquier Reverse. Their combination of skills will make Jumping Glenn a 15K booster. Jumping Glenn can boost Luquier Reverse up to 28,000 power.

Furthermore, Jumping Jill is another talented unit who works very well with Silver Thorn Dragon Queen Luquier Reverse. Jumping Jill gains 3,000 power when she is superior called from the Soul. The additional 5,000 power from Luquier Reverse's skill will give Jumping Jill a grand total of 17,000 power.

However, Silver Thorn Dragon Queen, Luquier Reverse's Limit Break does have a few setbacks. It is unlikely that a player will lock Luquier's booster. The unit who is superior called from the soul will not be boosted because the rear guard in the back row is locked. Thankfully the superior called unit will be compensated with 5,000 power. However, the compensation is really lacking considering the cost of one Counter Blast and a locked unit. The additional 5,000 power will not be very effective against opposing Cross Ride units.

In conclusion, Silver Thorn Dragon Queen, Luquier Reverse is a very fun and unique Cross Ride unit. She works best with units who activate their skills when they are superior called from the Soul. However, her skill doesn't give you an advantage because one of your units is locked and the power boost is very low. She is still very appealing for being a unique card and very fun to play. I can't wait to get my hands on one!
