Authoritative Knight, Ballizal – #V-SS06/003EN
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale: 1 is awful. 3 is average. 5 is great.
Oh yeah, there WAS this other thing that came out recently wasn’t there? 3 brand spanking new units for Royal Paladin (I’m not counting the starter unless it has a unique effect or something). Ballizal here is a top 7 searcher for 8 possible targets when ridden. Not especially good but nice to have. Primarily you want the second skill, which is to grant 10k. Now, that is certainly a nice option to have, but is slightly ruined by the fact it isn’t optional, since ideally you want the 10k to be stacked onto Sanctuary Guard so when it re-stands it has more pressure, at least during a turn where you can read that the opponent isn’t likely to have a Perfect Guard. The Countercharge is nice though.
Hard once per turn is also quite sad, but as it helps to grab a key piece (maybe) and it’s a Countercharger with not much other strings attached I guess Sanctuary Guard can find a decent use for it.
