Unit of The Week: Dragon Dancer, Arabella

The flickering flames shall become power for the flame dragons. 
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (RC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose your vanguard, and that unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
Dragon Dancer Arabella is the promo card in Divine Dragon Progression. Dragon Dancers support Cray's most powerful dragons. Arabella lends her power to her vanguard leader in his march towards victory. Kagero's flame dragons are more than happy to accept the power boost. 

Dragon Dancer, Arabella's skill gives 5,000 power to a flame dragon vanguard for one counter blast. She fits in most Kagero decks. A lot of decks can use her services. Be sure to place her in a deck that does not use a lot of counter blasts.

Furthermore, her skill is very interesting because it focuses on race. There are very few cards in the game with skills based on the race. Her skill only gives 5,000 power to Flame Dragons. Not all of Kagero's units are Flame Dragons so Arabella can only work in decks with Flame Dragons as the vanguard.

However, Arabella's skill is for only one turn. You must make the most out of it. Dragonic Overlord the End is her best target because he has the ability to stand back up in battle and he can attack again with at least 18K power. She will be a lame duck after her skill his used. She would not bring anything else to the table.

In closing, Dragon Dancer, Arabella is a decent card. She would have been a better card if her skill was not limited to the turn when she is placed on the rear-guard circle. It would give her the ability to power up the vanguard every turn and most importantly, make her a very useful for the long-run.

Card Rating: 2 out of 5
