Unit of The Week: Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie

The dragon that protects the sanctuary, knows the power of a little courage. 
[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.
[CONT](VC):During your turn, if you have a heart card with "Sanctuary Guard" in its card name, all of the units in your front row get [Power]+3000 for each of your grade 1 or less rear-guards.
Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie has major importance in the history of Cardfight!! Vanguard. He created a nation for dragons and humans to live in peace. This nation was most likely the United Sanctuary. However, an unknown dragon divided the eastern part of the nation into the Dragon Empire. Some dragons such as Soul Savior Dragon and the Sanctuary Guard Dragons continued to live in peace with humans. Can you imagine Dragonic Overlord as a Royal Paladin and Blaster Blade's Legion Leader? That would be amazing! I hope Bushiroad develop cards from an alternate timeline with this type of scenario.

Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie's Generation Break becomes online when your heart has Sanctuary Guard in its name and all of your units in the front row gain 3,000 power for each grade one or less rear-guard.  Your units in the front row can gain as much as 15,000 power if you have five grade one or less rear-guards. The only grade zero rear-guard should be your starting vanguard. A formation with only grade one or less units will gains a total of 45,000 power. Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie's power will rise above 40,000!

Furthermore, Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie's skill rewards you for gathering as many grade one units as possible in your formation. Royal Paladins gain benefits from having many allies on the field together. Sanctuary Guard's theme is gaining power for every grade one or less units on your field. There are many cards to use to help build your formation and gain advantage with your skills. Good cards reward you for playing a clan's mechanic to the fullest potential.

Finally, Sanctuary Guard has a good amount of support. Battle Flag Knight, Constance superior calls a grade one or less rear-guard from your deck. Superior call Hidden Sage, Miron with Constance's skill to use her skill to soul blast and draw a card! Knight of Twin Sword is an awesome grade two unit to play in this deck. He can superior call a fresh grade two unit from your deck for an extra deck. Your new unit does not need a boost because it will gain power from Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie's skill!

Overall, Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie is a fantastic G-unit in Sanctuary Guard decks. It maintains the archetype's theme of gaining power by having many grade one or less units on your field. Your formation gains 45,000 power if every rear-guard is grade one or less. Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie's power easily rises above 40,000 before receiving a boost from a rear-guard. Protect the United Sanctuary with Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie!
