Unit of The Week: Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon

The splendor of justice, crosses at the peak of the heavens. 
[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.
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (2) & Choose a face down card named "Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon" from your G zone, and turn it face up] When this unit is placed on (VC), if the number of face up cards in your G zone is one or more, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at five cards from the top of your deck, search for up to one card from among them for each face up card you have in your G zone,and call them to separate open (RC). Shuffle your deck.
Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon is a golden dragon from the future. Gurguit summoned Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon with the power of Stride. His comrades were surprised when he spoke to them. He speaks in the same manner as a humans communicate. Gurguit suspects Spearcross Dragon was a human at one point in his life. Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon is an intelligent and powerful soldier in the combat with his fellow Gold Paladins.

Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon's skill superior call cards from the top of your deck for each face up card in your G zone. The skill has the potential to superior call up to five units in a single action. You conserve your hand for defense while Spearcross gathers units to the field. This skill is also great against decks like Kagero and Narukami. They can retire your rear-guards, but you can recruit new units from your deck!

Furthermore, Gold Dragon Spearcross Dragon's ability has great chemistry with Gold Paladin's new ability Unite. Gold Paladins gain skills when two or more units are called to rear-guard circles or the guardian zone. Their new skills can be gaining power or counter charging cards in the damage zone. Each unit with Unite will be able to exploit Spearcross Dragon's ability. Knight of New Sun, Catillus and Divinity Lancer Dragon gain 3,000 power from Unite.

Finally, I would run a full set of Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon in a deck. His ability is great for a finishing play. You will have at least two face up cards in your G zone when you are ready to stride Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon. His ability costs two counter blasts. This may appear to be very expensive, but Knight of Thin Sun, Marcia's Unite skill makes you able to play a full set of Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon. Marica's skill counter charges one card in the damage zone. You can stride Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon twice per cardfight!

Overall, Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon unites the Gold Paladins. Its ability enhances your formation. Gold Paladins with the Unite skill will be able to use their full potential in combat. Spearcross Dragon will only become a stronger card as more Gold Paladins with Unite are released in future booster sets. Gold Paladins unite with Golden Dragon, Spearcross Dragon to form the ultimate battle formation!

Card Rating: 4.5 out of 5
