Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile is the newest version of Altmile for a grade 3 card. Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile is loaded with three skills! He is finally built to play with Brave. Brave actives when you have three or less cards in your hand. The mechanic appears to be difficult to activate, but there are new cards to help players activate Brave.
The first skill with a Generation Break with Grave and activates when Altmile attacks an opposing unit. All of your rear-guards will gain 4,000 power until the end of the turn. He should attack first in combat to unleash a burst of power to your Royal Paladins because you do not want to miss the skill on your rear-guards. This skill is useful when you are unable to Stride a G-Unit in the late game. You are able to make up for missing Stride.
The second skill activates at the beginning of your ride phase. You may use this ability before you Stride your G-Unit. It helps lower the size of your hand to be ready to use your skills with Brave in their names. Catharsis Vivid is a good card for a budget deck with Brave. She gains 6,000 power from her skill and Altmile's skill together.
The final skill supports units with Brave. Your unit with Brave gains 4,000 power when you Stride and call a card from your hand to the field. You are decreasing your hand size to fulfill Brave's requirements. This ability continues to increase your formation's power after your second skill. It makes guarding attacks more difficult for your opponent. A very good card to call from your hand is Struggle Knight, Porex. He gains 5,000 when he is called by a card's effect and he can receive the 4,000 power from Altmile's skill.
Overall, Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile is the better version of Altmile for Brave decks. Brave is my least favorite mechanic as many of you already know. Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile gives the mechanic a proper vanguard. He is a cost efficient card as none of his skills require a counter blast. All three of his skills boosts your rear-guards' power to greater heights! You can spend your counter blasts on other cards to enhance your strategy. Show your bravery in card fights with Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile!
