Unit of The Week: Liberator of the Flute, Escrad

Have a listen. The notes to a beautiful counterattack! 
[AUTO](VC/RC):[Counter Blast (1)-card with "Liberator" in its card name] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, if you have a «Gold Paladin» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at the top card of your deck, search for up to one «Gold Paladin», call it to an open (RC), and put the rest on the bottom of your deck.
King Alfred assigned the United Sanctuary's greatest flute player to the duty of calling the troops. Liberator of the Flute, Escrad uses his flute to signal teams to join the battle against the wicked invaders Link Joker. I pulled Liberator of the Flute, Escrad and Wingal Liberator last week at locals. He was the first holo I've pulled in many months.

Liberator of the Flute, Escrad stays true to the Gold Paladin's playstyle. His skill randomly superior calls the top card of the deck. It gives the player an additional attack or a booster and can set up combos with Blaster Blade Liberator. However, you don't want to superior call a trigger. They are typically bad boosters and weak attackers. It is also wasting a potential trigger.

Furthermore, he is a much improved version of Viviane for Liberators. His skill's cost is much cheaper and he does not require a booster. Solitary Liberator, Gancelot's Break Ride will give 5,000 power to Escrad and this will help him hit the opposing vanguard without needing a booster.

All in all, Liberator of the Flute Escrad is a great addition to the Liberators. Two to four copies of him in a deck are very efficient. His skill can be a hit or a miss. However, it can provide a very good plus by adding an attacker or booster to the field. Pulling Escrad and Wingal Liberator is a great start for building my Liberator deck!
