Unit of The Week: Sprout Jewel Knight, Camille

Giving thanks to everything. The jewels will heed your call if you do so. 
[AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1)] At the beginning of your main phase, if the number of rear-guards you have is three or less, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one card with "Jewel Knight" in its card name, call it to (RC), and shuffle your deck.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
When the Jewel Knights' leader Ashli fell injured in battle, Sprout Jewel Knight, Camille took the role to as captain as she became Salome's right-hand partner. Now the Jewel Knights' interim captain will lead her troops in battle to stop Link Joker's invasion. The Jewel Knights must buy time for the Liberators to arrive before the Star-vaders lock their hopes of victory. Can Camille successful lead the troops or will she crumble under the pressure?

Sprout Jewel Knight Camille is the latest Limit Break unit for Jewel Knights. Her Limit Break superior calls one card with Jewel Knight in its name from the deck if you have three or less rear-guards, and her second skill gives her 2000 power when she attacks a vanguard. Overall, Camille's Limit Break skill is very lackluster as you only gain a small advantage. Limit Breaks are suppose to turn the tide in your favor when you are on the edge of defeat, and Camille fails to deliver the comeback.

Furthermore, there are many units that do her job so much better at the same cost or just a little more costly. King of Knights' Vanguard, Ezzell and Wolf Fang Liberator, Garmore do a much better job at superior calling units to the field to gain a massive advantage. I would rather play an unit that can superior call multiple units instead of a card like Camille that gives very little advantage.

Finally, Camille lacks chemistry with Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei's Break Ride skill as Camille's skills does not have any combo plays with Ashlei unlike her Jewel Knight comrades. Ashlei "Яeverse", Julia, Salome, and Yvain each has their own combo play when Break Riding over Ashlei to gain more advantage. Camille only gains a critical and power from the Break Ride skill, and every opponent will guard with a Perfect Guard to avoid taking massive damage.

Sprout Jewel Knight, Camille is by far the worst boss to run in a Jewel Knight deck as she does not deserve to be a RRR. She is far from being the leader that she is described to be. Her Limit Break gives very little advantage to you as you are only gaining one card. She is also the only Jewel Knight with Limit Break that does not have any synergy with Pure Heart Jewel Knight, Ashlei. She is so bad that she can't be a trap to trick players into adding her to their decks. If you pull her from a booster pack, then just put her in a sleeve tucked away in your binder unless of course you want to play her for fun.
