Unit of The Week: Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver

The solitary knight carries out his ideals to the extreme, to establish perpetual peace. 
[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.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks, if you have a heart card with "Alfred" or "Blaster" in its card name, Counter Charge (1), until end of that battle, this unit gets drive+1, and then, if you have a face up card in your G zone, this unit gets [Critical]+1.
[CONT](G Zone):During your turn, if this card is face up, all of your rear-guards with "Blaster Blade" in its card name get "[CONT](RC):Resist".
Grancelot has finally returned to Cardfight!! Vanguard. He was originally a grade 3 vanguard with only 9K power. Later, he returned as a Gold Paladin with the Liberators. He has now returned as the powerful Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver! All of his incarnations have skills to assist units with Blaster Blade in their names. Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver provides further support for Blaster Blade Exceed.

Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver's skill Counter Charges one card in the damage zone, he gains quadruple drive, and gains one critical if you have a face up card in your G-Zone. The first two effects are the best features. You gain two important resources without paying a cost. The additional drive check adds one more card to your hand and is another opportunity to check a trigger. You have two options to achieve the additional critical. You can either play a G-Guardian before your turn or wait to play him for your second G-Unit in the game.

The second skill shows its benefits in the late stages of games. If Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver is face up in the G-Zone, the skill grants all rear-guards with Blaster Blade in their names resist during your turn. Blaster Blade is able to avoid effects that could retire him from the field. Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin cannot stop Blaster Blade alone. Your opponent must choose a different G-Guardian or use more cards to block the attack.

Finally, his second skill's purpose is to enable Divine Knight King, Alfred Holy Saver skills. Blaster Blade can perform a Twin Drive as a rear-guard and he needs protection from certain decks. Your Blaster Blade is guaranteed to perform Twin Drive. Your opponent is unable to use skills to remove him from the field during your turn. I would not want to lose such a precious advantage.

Overall, Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver is one of the most essential cards for a Blaster Blade deck. He continues the tradition of Gancelot to support units named Blaster Blade! All of his abilities are so powerful that I cannot pass them for another card. Every ability gives advantages to you without paying a cost for these abilities. Relive the Royal Paladins' glory days with Holy Divine Knight, Gancelot Peace Saver!
