Well, since themed weeks for G Boosters seem to have gone over well (in terms of deciding what to review, anyway) let’s start with Shadow Paladin. Claret Sword 2.0 here has a GB2 that’s more useful than old Claret, although to be fair that sucked donkey nuts. Turning boosters into meat shields is a more worthy causes to minus for. What sucks about it is that it isn’t optional, however. Every attack will kill a booster on your field, vital and otherwise. You can’t even combo Perfect Guards with this, because it’s moving, not placing, on Guardian Circle.

The Stride skill is a straight +2 to you, but randomness is a bitch at times, and I’m not keen on the mass-deck thinning, lacking a Luard-type skill to ease the pain. You pretty much need to run Ersas as the PG just so he’s sack fodder and won’t get RNG screwed if called.

Best that can be said is that he at least works as a reasonable backup to Luard until he too gets another form. If at all.



Shadows get another run of support, and this time ol’ Claret Sword gets a boost. The new version gives a neat stride skill letting you call a card and add one to hand, though it’s a touch random. The second ability lets you convert what few boosters you have into shields to block more attacks if need be (great against Aquas). All in all, a strong upgrade over old Claret, and a decent backup to Luard
