Unit of The Week: Blaster Blade Exceed

In the name of Saver! Shine forth, Blaster Blade! 
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] When your G unit with "Saver" in its card name Stride during your turn, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one card with "Blaster Blade" in its card name, reveal it, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.
[AUTO]:[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (VC) or (RC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's grade 1 or greater rear-guards, and retire it.
Blaster Blade has returned as a grade 3 unit. Many players believe this is his first grade 3 card, but this is misinformation. Blaster Blade's first grade three cards are Majesty Lord Blaster, Exculpate the Blaster, and Blaster Blade Burst. Blaster Blade Burst is the only card of the three cards not released in English at this time. Blaster Blade Exceed is the newest Blaster unit. He is designed for the Cardfight!! Vanguard G era. He has a new skill to work with G-Units and has a stronger version of Blaster Blade's original skills.

Blaster Blade Exceed's Stride skill searches for one card with Blaster Blade in its name. Blaster Blade Exceed's skill has two strong options. First, this skill sets up Divine Knight King, Alfred Holy Saver's skill. You will have a Blaster Blade on the field to gain Twin Drive. Second, you may also use this skill to draw an extra copy of Blaster Blade Exceed to discard on your next turn to perform Stride.

Furthermore, Divine Knight King, Alfred Holy Saver is the best G-Unit for Blaster Blade Exceed. Your new card with Blaster Blade in its name will be able to perform a Twin Drive for his first battle. Your G-Unit already had the ability to perform Triple Drive. You will have a total of five drive checks in a single turn. This is a great skill for generating a large advantage. Your hand size will increase by five and there are many opportunities to check triggers!

Finally, Blaster Blade Exceed's second skill is a representation to the original Blaster Blade. When Blaster Blade Exceed to called to either vanguard circle or rear-guard circle, you may retire a grade one or greater card. He is a very versatile card. You may use the extra copies to pay for the cost of Stride or call an extra copy to the field. He can retire a troublesome card. Many decks will be weaken after losing a key rear-guard.

Overall, Blaster Blade Exceed is a very strong unit and has put Blaster Blade back on top of Cardfight!! Vanguard. I kept all of my Blaster Blades from the original Royal Paladin trial deck. My full set of Blaster Blades are ready to be superior called to the battlefield. Blaster Blade Exceed's skills are effective for G-Units and when he is a rear-guard. Blaster decks have many options on their selection of cards and strategies. Stand up my avatar Blaster Blade Exceed!
