The light of an angel with bring out the shine from dark, sealed past too.

If you do, choose up to the same number of cards from your damage zone as the number of face up cards named "Holy Seraph, Altiel" in your G zone, heal them, choose one of your vanguards, and for each damage healed with this effect, deal one damage. (Perform a damage check. Triggers will also activate)
I pulled a lot good cards last week at my local card shop. Holy Seraph, Altiel was one of the best cards from last Saturday. My collection lacks Angel Feathers of higher rarity. It was nice to finally pull my second RRR Angel Feather. Rin Hashima plays Holy Seraph, Altiel as her ace card in Cardfight!! Vanguard G Next.

Holy Seraph, Altiel demonstrates the full potential of Angel Feather's signature ability Rescue. Her skill heals the same amount of cards as face up Holy Seraph, Altiel in the G Zone and deals one damage for each card healed by this effect. You can perform up to three damage checks with her skill before heading to combat. Triggers will activate for each damage check. You can apply Critical Triggers' extra damage to Holy Seraph, Altiel and provide the power to the rear-guards. Draw triggers have a lot of potential in this deck. You can draw extra cards sooner than normal.

You can furthermore manipulate the damage zone with Black Shiver, Gavrail as your grade 3 vanguard and heart. Use  Black Shiver, Gavrail's skill to place a unit on the field that you want from the daamge zone. Your formation gains a key card from the damage while the remaining cards will be recovered. You will also have a fresh set of face up units to superior call on your next turn with  Black Shiver, Gavrail.

Finally, many rear-guards benefit from cards being placed into the damage zone. You can create powerful columns with your rear-guards. Nurse of Broken Heart is one of the best rear-guards to have on the field alongside Holy Seraph, Altiel. Her skill gives 2,000 power to herself and your vanguard when a card is placed into the damage zone. You are gaining powers from skills and Triggers simultaneously.

Overall, Holy Seraph, Altiel is one of the best G-Units with Generation Break 3 and belongs in every Angel Feather deck. Her Rescue ability is too good to pass for another card. There is a lot of potential to check triggers and activate cards' effects after performing damage checks. Nurse of Broken Heart and Holy Seraph, Altiel are a dynamic duo with awesome plays together. Holy Seraph, Altiel's perfect beauty will rescue your units and guide them to victory!
