Unit of The Week: Maiden of Trailing Rose
[CONT](VC/RC):If you have a non-«Neo Nectar» vanguard or rear-guard, this unit gets [Power]-2000.
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a card named "Maiden of Trailing Rose" from your hand, and discard it] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at up to five cards from the top of your deck, search for up to two «Neo Nectar» from among them, call the chosen cards to separate (RC), and shuffle your deck.
Maiden of Trailing Rose is a RR from Awakening of Twin Blades. She is the protector of her nation. Her seeds are used to create Bioroids. Zoo continues to grow larger and stronger because Maiden of Trailing Rose continues to create powerful soldiers. She is one of the early units that loses power if you have a non-Neo Nectar vanguard or rear-guard on the field. This silly skill should be ignored because Neo Nectar decks must be pure to be consistent. Maiden of Trailing Rose will bloom into her clan's leading vanguard.
You can superior call two cards from the top five cards of your deck after her attack hits a vanguard. Her skill requires a persona blast and one counter blast. You will need to play a complete set of Maiden of Trailing Rose to have consistency. Her skill gives you the opportunity to attack more than three times in a turn or to help build your formation. Her skill is not a Limit Break or Generation Break. She does not have early limitations. You can use her skill before your opponent's vanguard is at grade 3.
Furthermore, Maiden of Gladiolus is one of the best cards to pair with Maiden of Trailing Rose. Gladiolus can superior call a Neo Nectar unit from your deck. This adds another attack in your formation. You can attack up to five times without a Stand Trigger by attacking in the correct order. First, one of your front row rear-guards need to attack your opponent. Second, Gladiolus will attack the opposing vanguard and superior call a new unit to replace your first attacker. Third, Maiden of Trailing Rose will attack and hit the opposing vanguard. You will use her skill to superior call two units to replace Gladiolus and her booster. Your two standing rear-guards will finish the wave of attacks.
Finally, Maiden of Trailing Rose received a Legion revival. She is Maiden of Rambling Rose's Legion Mate. Maiden of Rambling Rose's Legion skill searches for two cards with the same name as one of your vanguard from the deck. One card will be placed into your hand while the other card is called to a rear-guard circle. Keep a copy of Maiden of Trailing Rose in your hand. You may use it to pay for her skill if your Legion attack hits the opponent's vanguard!
Overall, Maiden of Trailing Rose is still a decent vanguard by today's standards. Her skill is good for Neo Nectar decks. She blooms new allies to the field. You may use her skill regardless of your opponent's current grade and your amount of damage. She has free range on the battlefield. Her Legion Leader is pretty good Maiden of Rambling Rose. I am currently playing her as a backup vanguard in my Neo Nectar deck. Maiden of Trailing Rose will blossom in a new age of Cardfight!! Vanguard.
