Unit of The Week: Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter

Yes ......I have summoned. Do your best. 
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast(1)] When this unit is placed on (VC) or (RC), if you have a «Shadow Paladin» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one grade 0 or less card with "Revenger" in its card name, call it to (RC) as [Rest], and shuffle your deck.
Many Revengers wield powerful axes and swords while others use their unique skills to lend their strengths to their comrades. Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter is not the strongest soldier on the battlefield. However, she aids her comrades in battle. They can always rely on her when they need an extra boost in battle. Revenge, Dark Bond Trumpeter never fails to answer the call.

Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter superior calls a grade zero unit from the deck. This skill is best used to fuel the vanguards' Limit Break skills. Many grade 3 Shadow Paladins' skills require at least one rear-guard to be retired to activate. What makes this skill very useful is that it is not exclusive to Revengers because of her skill only requires any Shadow Paladin as the vanguard. She fits in almost every Shadow Paladin deck.

In addition to superior calling allies, she has an amazing combo with Judgebau Revenger to superior ride Revenger, Raging Form Dragon twice in one turn! This requires a rear-guard Phantom's attack to hit an opposing unit when boosted by Judgebau Revenger. Judgebau Revenger is capable of superior calling Dark Bond Trumpeter and another grade one unit from the deck, then she can superior call a copy of Judgebau Revenger from the deck.

Furthermore, Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter sets up plays for rear-guards. Calling Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter and using her skill will give Overcoming Revenger, Rukea an additional 6,000 power. He easily becomes a 15K attacker and can consistently be at least a 12K attacker each turn as long as the player continues to call at least one grade one per turn.

Overall, Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeter is a nice supporting unit for Shadow Paladins. She fits in nearly every Shadow Paladin deck. She supports classic decks like Phantom Blaster and newer decks like Revengers. Her only purpose is to help gather resources to use as sacrifices for the vanguard's ultimate skill. Personally, I would run two Revenger, Dark Bond Trumpeters per deck.

Card Rating: 3 out of 5
