Unit of The Week: Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon

Life and hope are my wings! Flash forth, Eternal Wing!  
[ACT](VC): Legion 20000 "Blaster Blade Seeker" (If your opponent's vanguard is grade 3 or greater, this unit may return four cards from your drop zone into your deck once, search your deck for the specified card, and Legion)
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (2) & Soul Blast (3) & Choose two cards from your hand, and discard them] At the end of the battle that this unit attacked a vanguard, if this unit is in Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one card named "Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon", ride it as [Stand], shuffle your deck, choose one card named "Blaster Blade Seeker" from your soul, and perform Legion.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle
The Royal Paladins sought help from the past to help defeat Link Joker once and for all. The guardian dragon from the past, Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon has been called to join the fight. Unknowing to the dragon, a few citizens such as Blaster Blade and Soul Saver Dragon know Thing Saver Dragon is their time's Revenger, Phantom Blaster "Abyss". Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon is assigned to be Blaster Blade's personal bodyguard and Legion Leader.

The Legion skill costs two counter blasts, three soul blasts, and discarding two cards from your hand to superior Legion Seek, Thing Saver Dragon from the deck, and Blaster Blade Seeker in the soul will become its mate. The skill is very costly, but it is worth every penny. Back to back Legion attacks can put your opponent in a bind, and triggers from both Twin Drives can be given to rear-guards just in case the Legion cannot hit the opposing vanguard.

Furthermore, building the Soul for Seeker, Thing Saver appears be challenging because the archetype lacks cards to directly soul charge as the majority of low-grade Seekers focus on gaining power. However, there is plenty of support to build Soul using non-seekers. Margal is an optional draw trigger in the deck to easily build the Soul. The deck's starter, Advance Party Seeker, File will return to the Soul to superior call Blaster Blade Seeker, then use Blaster Blade Seeker's skill to return an opposing grade 2 to prevent it from intercepting the upcoming Legion attack. Seeker of Bravery, Ars is also a good card in the deck because he turns face down cards in the damage zone face up.

Finally, you want to build off your momentum from the first Legion attack to pressure your opponent. You can pull off a triple dose of momentum with three consecutive Legion attacks. Play Seeker, Sacred Wingal to be the first Legion during the mid-game. This gives you a total of five cards in the soul when you ride Thing Saver Dragon, and once you superior ride Thing Saver Dragon, then you will have three cards in the Soul for the second superior ride.

Given these points, Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon is one of the most unique Legion Leaders in the game. The Royal Paladins were given the worst Break Ride unit in the past format and now has one of the best cards in the game. It has just more than enough support to be able to compete at a high-level in every game. Blaster Blade Seeker and Seeker, Thing Saver Dragon are going to give your opponent a triple dose of Legion attacks!

Card Rating: 4 out of 5
