What's up, you guys?! It's time to wrap
up our first half of the Top 10 Cards of 2013. Today,
I'm going to give a curveball...
Liberator of the Round Table, Alfred
Clan: Gold Paladin
[CONT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you
have four or more damage):During your turn, this unit
gets [Power]+2000 for each rear-guard you have with
"Liberator" in its card name.
[ACT](VC):[Counter Blast (2)-card with "Liberator" in
its card name] Look at the top card of your deck, search
for up to one «Gold Paladin», call it to an open (RC),
and put the rest on the bottom of your deck.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same
clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
..I think I'm going to get a lot of mixed reactions
on this one seeing how Alfred is relatively new, but I
still believe that he deserves a spot on this list just
because he's that good. Alfred finally got off his horse
and got serious as his Limit Break gives him his old
effect where he gains 2,000 power for each Liberator
comrade on his field, but there's a key difference here:
THIS Alfred CAN BE BOOSTED!!! Meaning that if he's
boosted by Future Liberator, Llew, then Alfred can
potentially be 31,000 every turn he attacks, and that's
a pretty fearful number in itself and nearly impossible
to guard later game without a Sentinel.
But wait, there's more! Alfred also retains his
Superior Call ability but is now used differently. At a
cost of 2 Especial Counterblast, Alfred can Superior
Call the top card of the deck as long as it's a Gold
Paladin, which is going to be anything in the deck in
this case! This can easily backfire, however, seeing how
you might flip over a Trigger that you don't want to
call and also the fact that you need to Counterblast 2
Liberator cards, which makes the deck more strict as it
makes you use more Legion-based cards, which isn't THAT
bad in itself.
In short, I personally believe that Alfred is able to
bring a very imposing presence in the upcoming
tournament format and is well deserving of being in the
Next Time: #5 is going to be the only unit on the
countdown that is 10,000 power...but soooooo worth it!
Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!
