Unit of The Week: Dragonic Blademaster

The soul of a dragon..... That is the Green Dragon Scimitar. 
[CONT](VC) Generation Break 2:During your turn, if the number of rear-guards you have is more than your opponent's, this unit gets [Power]+5000/[Critical]+1.
[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1)] During your turn, when your G unit Stride, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent's rear-guards, and retire it.
Dragonic Blademaster began the Generation Break era for the Kagero clan. He is often overlooked by players because Dragonic Overlord is the most popular character from the clan. Dragonic Blademaster is one of many alternatives for Kagero decks. We once again have a large dragon wield a sword instead of shooting flames. Dragons with swords is a common image in Cardfight!! Vanguard. Dragonic Blademaster is Mamoru Anjou's avatar card in season five.

Dragonic Blademaster's Generation Break 2 grants him 5,000 power and plus one critical if you have more rear-guards than your opponent. Kagero is designed to control the field. The requirements are easy to archive every turn. Dragonic Blademaster can gain more power from Dragon Knight, Jannat's skill. He will gain 5,000 power and you can draw a card. The boosts in power and additional critical damage put heavy pressure on your opponent. Dragonic Blademaster's power will be 21,000 with two critical damage before being boosted and drive checking for triggers.

Furthermore, the proper support will enable Dragonic Blademaster's GB2. Kagreo's signature ability is retiring opponents' rear-guards to counter their strategies. Your opponents are forced to adjust their strategies after losing key cards. Play Twilight Arrow Dragon on a full field to easily activate your Generation Break. Twilight Arrow Dragon automatically retires an opponent's rear-guard if it is boosted. You need to retire early and often in games.

Finally, Dragonic Blademaster further demonstrates his clan's strategy with his Stride skill. When your G-Unit Stride, you can retire one of your opponent's rear-guards. The evolved form Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Blademaster "Taiten" benefits from the stride skill. The clan's keyword Blaze becomes active after you have more rear-guards than your opponent. You only need to retire one opposing rear-guard and have a full field to achieve Blaze.

Overall, Dragonic Blademaster is a decent grade 3 for Kagero players. There are better options such as Dragonic Overlord The Legend. However, Dragonic Blademaster should not be underestimated. He focuses on retiring rear-guards with skills instead of standing for multiple attacks. His current support assists Dragonic Blademaster just enough to make him a respectable card. Dragonic Blademaster with his blade will burn the opposition to ashes!

Card Rating: 3 out of 5
