Blaster Blade is one of my favorite cards. I've always been drawn to knights since I was a little kid. Blaster Blade Burst is one of my most desired cards. He is one of Blaster Blade's powerful transformations. I want to build a Blaster deck built around him.

Let's take a look at what his skill-set brings to the table. First and foremost his skills are not Limit Break. Blaster Blade Burst has the luxury of activating his skills during any point of the game. He can either bring pressure in the early game or late game. His power has the potential to reach 33K when having two 10K units in the front row. This is very threatening in the early game especially with the Royal Paladins having access to twelve critical triggers.

Blaster Blade Burst has a very nice supporting cast. Wingal Brave can search for him in the deck. He has a fine grade 1 10K attacker in Knight of Friendship, Kay and a 12K attacker in Knight of Loyalty, Bedivere. Seeker of Bravery, Ars is the new unflipper for Royal Paladins! Ars gives Blaster Blade Burst the potential to activate his ultimate skill more than two times.

Blaster Blade's dynamic transformations Blaster Blade Burst and Exculpate the Blaster work very well together. Blaster Blade Burst can quickly replace Exculpate the Blaster on the following turn. Boost Exculpate the Blaster with Wingal Brave to activate Wingal Brave's skill to search for Blaster Blade Burst to replace Exculpate the Blaster. Exculpate the Blaster is most likely be able to hit at least one unit so triggering his skill is not difficult.

However, Blaster Blade Burst is not without weakness. He cannot be boosted just like King of Knights, Alfred. His second skill makes up for missing boost by being able to hit Cross Ride units. He becomes a 13K attacker when attacking an opponent's vanguard.

I really want Blaster Blade Burst to be released in English very soon. He is one of the sweetest Blaster units. He is a great alternative to Majesty Lord Blaster for Blaster Blade's fans. Making a deck based on him is very simple with the large amount of support for Blasters and Royal Paladins.

Card Rating: 3.5 out of 5
