Unit of The Week: Alfred Early


To preserve the smiles of his people, the young King leads knights to battle.

[AUTO]:When this unit is placed on (VC), choose up to one card named "Blaster Blade" from your soul, and call it to (RC).

Alfred is the King of the United Sanctuary. He is a just king who cares for his people and will fight for them in dark times. He led the United Sanctuary through the civil war and Cray's citizens during the Star-vader invasion. Now see the King as he once was! I ride Alfred Early!

The young king's ability superior calls Blaster Blade from the soul. Alfred Early is best used in Majesty Lord Blaster decks. Alfred Early can be used as a backup if a player rides Blaster Blade and fails to draw another copy. However, this is method is very slow as it forces the player to wait an additional turn to ride Majesty Lord Blaster and hope his opponent does not use a skill to retire Blaster Blade.

Furthermore, Alfred Early's skill enables Blaster Blade to use his skill for a second time. This a nice combo for Majesty Lord Blaster because the deck does not heavily rely on its counter-blasts. It also removes an opponent's rear-guard from the field. The combo is much more cost effective than Blaster Blade's combo with King of Knights, Alfred.

Overall, Alfred Early is a decent support card for Blaster Blade. The extra opportunity to retire an opponent's unit is very nice. It is much cheaper than King of Knights, Alfred's combo with Blaster Blade. More importantly Alfred Early is a worthy backup grade 3 in a Majesty Lord Blaster deck. His ability to superior call Blaster Blade enables Majesty Lord Blaster to use his ability on the following turn.

Card Rating: 2.5 out of 5
