Unit of The Week: Knight of Twin Sword

Dance through the heavens, like the two wings of a falcon. 
[AUTO](RC) Generation Break 1 (This ability is active if you have one or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, if this unit is boosted, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one grade 2 card not named "Knight of Twin Sword", call it to (RC), and shuffle your deck.
Knight of Twin Sword is the newest elite grade 2 solider in the Royal Paladin army. This awesome looking guy wields two power swords to take down his foes with! Enemies tremble in fear when he cries out to unleash his Generation Break. He is the first foil grade 2 unit in a Royal Paladin trial deck. Blaster Blade has handed the privilege to his grade 2 successor. Now it is time for Knight of Twin Sword to live up to his expectations.

His Generation Break costs one counterblast and he superior calls a card not named "Knight of Twin Sword" to a rear-guard circle when he attacks a vanguard. You can active his skill as your next turn after you performed your first Stride. The newly superior called attack solidifies your front-line and provides an interceptor if you just so happen to need to defend with him. As a matter of fact, there are many combo plays that you can make with his ability. Blaster Blade, Blaster Blade Seeker, and Blaster Blade Spirit are prime options to superior call for a fantastic combo to retire an opposing rear-guard. Knight of Fragment is another good option as he gains 2K power when there are two grade 2 units on the field and he flips damage face-up when he hits a vanguard.

Knight of Twin Sword works wonders in every generic Royal Paladin deck, especially in decks with a lot of superior calling. His skill greatly boosts Alfred and Ezzell Legion decks as you rarely if ever need to call hands directly from your hand after your first three or four turns. You will be focusing on superior calling to make a full field for Alfred and creating strong columns. Their Legion skill will superior call three units and Knight of Twin Swords add one more unit to the party for a total of four units. Your hand is going to be a huge defensive roadblock that will be tough for many opponents to overcome.

Overall, Knight of Twin Sword is a good generic card to splash in many Royal Paladin decks. His skill is ridiculously cheap and power when combined with the right cards for every situation. Most importantly, there are many big plays that you can make with different grade 2 units. Every Royal Paladin version of Blaster Blade benefits from his Generation Break. If you are playing a generic Royal Paladin deck then strongly consider Knight of Twin Sword for your grade 2 lineup.

Card Rating 4.5 out of 5
