Unit of The Week: Dragon Dancer, Agatha

[AUTO](RC):[Soul Blast (1)] When your opponent's rear-guard is put into the drop zone due to an effect from one of your cards, if you have a «Narukami» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose another of your «Narukami», and that unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of turn.
Dragon Dancers are the beautiful ladies in the Kagero and Narukami clans. Dragon Dancer, Agatha dances in battle for the proud Narukami clan! She rewards her comrades by giving them 3,000 power when they use their unique skills to retire the opponent's units!

Agatha works best in Narukami decks that focus on retiring units. She works very well with Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon , Eradicator, Vowing Saber Dragon "Яeverse", & Thunder Break Dragon. She can easily give Eradicator, Vowing Saber Dragon "Яeverse" an additional 6,000 power per turn. A nice amount of power can be very useful when pushing for game. The extra power will increase the stages of power and make it more difficult for the opponent to guard.

The best thing about her skill is that it costs one soul blast. This is fantastic because Narukami units typically use counter blasts for their skills. Agatha has plenty of soul to work with in the late game. She also has a fantastic combo with Fiendish Sword Eradicator, Cho-Ou. Cho-Ou can retire a unit by putting an Eradicator into the soul, then Agatha can use the same Eradicator to pay for her skill.

In closing, Dragon Dancer, Agatha is a unique card. I really like how she fits in with the Narukami clan. She belongs in a deck that focuses on retiring units because that's where she has chemistry with the units around her. She is a very interesting card to use to push for high games to win the game.

Card Rating: 3 out of 5
