Unit of The Week: Black Seraph, Gavrail

She is an angel, and a supreme destroyer. 
[Stride]-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.
[ACT](VC)[1/Turn] Generation Break 2:[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card named "Black Seraph, Gavrail" from your G zone, and turn it face up] Until end of turn, this unit gets "[AUTO](VC):When your card is put into your damage zone during the battle phase, choose up to two of your units, and they get [Power]+2000 until end of turn." and "Rescue 2-[AUTO](VC):At the end of the battle that this unit attacked, choose two cards from your damage zone, heal them, choose one of your vanguards, and deal two damage.".
Angel Feathers were introduced in season two of Cardfight!! Vanguard. The clan has made a name for itself with beauty white woman as sexy nurses. I have never seen a theme like it in trading card games before. Rin Hashima plays an Angel Feathers deck in Cardfight!! Vanguard G. Her case G-Unit is Black Seraph, Gavrail. She is the Stride Evolution of Black Shiver, Gavrail.

Black Seraph, Gavrail's skill is an ACT. Two of your units gain 2,000 power when a card is put into your damage zone during the battle phase, and she performs Rescue twice after she battles a vanguard. These skills have potential to put a lot of pressure on your opponent. Your units can gain a large amount of power if you are able to perform Rescue before Gavrail attacks the vanguard. I want to build Gavrail's power before she attacks a vanguard.

Furthermore, Rescue is a unique ability. Rescue heals damage and then damages your vanguard. Rescue fulfills Angel Feather's desire to place cards into the damage zone. Triggers activate during Rescue. The skill works well with Gavrail's first skill. You will give 2,000 power to two units. Nurse of Broken Heart is one of the best cards to play with Gavrail. She gives 2,000 power to herself and your vanguard after a card is black into your damage zone.

There are many Angel Feathers from the retro era to the Generation era that are great cards with Black Seraph, Gavrail. Surgery Angel starts the chain of events. She performs rescue after she boosts an attack. Cards are leaving the damage zone and going in the damage zone.  This a powerful defensive and offensive ability. It can be triggered during either player's turn. Your may superior call Drill Motor Nurse if she is placed into the drop zone from the damage zone.

Overall, Black Seraph, Gavrail is one of the best finishers for Angel Feathers. Her skills have chemistry with many units. You have many options to choose from for your deck. Drill Motor Nurse, Nurse of Broken Heart, and Surgery Angel are just three of many cards that work in perfect sync with Gavrail. I will be on the lookout for new cards to support Gavrail in new booster packs for Cardfight!! Vanguard G Next. Black Seraph, Gavrail will heal her wounded allies and dominate her enemies.

Card Rating: 5 out of 5
