To the battlefield. As if advancing on an empty plain
[Stride] (Released when both players' vanguards are grade 3 or greater!)-Stride Step-[Choose one or more cards with the sum of their grades being 3 or greater from your hand, and discard them] Stride this card on your (VC) from face down.The Shadow Paladins are in an intense mutiny! The clan's leadership is in questioned. Blaster Dark took the lead after Phantom Blaster Dragon's departure, and a new enemy named Claret Sword Dragon is challenging Blaster Dark for the clan's leadership position. The two swordsmen collide in an amazing battle to determine Shadow Paladin's future. Blaster Dark can summon an old ally to help grab him victory, but his enemy can summon a fearsome dragon as well. Claret Sword Dragon uses his stride abilities to summon the vile Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon!
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Soul Blast (1) &; Choose a card named "Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon" from your G zone, and turn it face up &; Choose two of your rear-guards, and retire them] When this unit attacks a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, reveal two cards from the top of your deck. This unit gets [Power]+5000 for each grade 1 or less card revealed with this effect until end of turn. Put the cards revealed with this effect into your hand.
Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon's Stride skill retires two rear-guards for you draw two cards and your vanguard gains 5K power for each grade 1 or lower card drawn from this effect. Triggers on top of the 5K bonus from the skill will build his power to greater heights! You must also reveal the drawn cards. Some people may complain about revealing the drawn cards, but I do not see a problem with this requirement. It is only fair for your opponent to know you honestly drew a grade one or zero card for the power bonus.
Furthermore, Promising Knight, David is the key card for Aurageyser Dragon. His Generation Break skill makes his sacrifice count as two rear-guards instead of just himself. You will actually gain a card in your hand! Try running more draw power cards to draw the cards that you need to win. Thinning your deck also increases your chances of checking a trigger when you vanguard attacks! Scornful Knight, Gyva and Skull Witch, Nemain are two great choices to play in your deck for extra draw power!
Finally, Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon is the key card in your G Zone to play Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Doomed. You need the original G-Unit to pay for the new version's skill. Aurageyser Doomed also gains a critical if you have three or more copies of Aurageyser Dragon face up in your G Zone! I recommend playing a full set of both cards. Consistency is the Shadow Paladins' key to win games!
Overall, Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon can be a great card to play or fearsome foe. Every Shadow Paladin deck gets an instant boost in power with Aurageyser Dragon. Your ability to draw extra cards can be great if it is properly played. The original's price has jumped in recent weeks since Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Doomed's released in the English version. It can pricey to get your hands on a complete set. I was lucky to get mine copy from a random booster pack!
