- #BT09/037 (R)

Date Reviewed: July 9, 2013

[AUTO](RC):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose another of your «Gold Paladin» rear-guards, and retire it] When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted a «Gold Paladin», you may pay the cost. If you do, look at the top card of your deck, search for up to one «Gold Paladin» from among them, call it to an open (RC) as [Rest], and put the rest on the bottom of your deck.

Advance of the Black Chains, Kahedin

Kahedin is a fantastic new weapon for Pellinore Gold Paladin decks. Her skill is much like Viviane’s, except that you must retire a rear guard to call the top card, and the new card hits the board in resting position. At 7k, she makes a solid back row rear guard, and a nicely sized early game front row.

The big drawback of Viviane is that, once your board is filled, you cannot call new units via her skill, slowing or eliminating your ability to make Pellinore plays during the battle phase. Kahedin fixes that by freeing up a space for you to call the new unit. This lets you spam the abilities of not only Pellinore, but potentially Lop-ear Shooter and Dindrane too; Lop-ear giving you an additional chance to drop a Pellinore. In addition, if your front row unit is Tripp, then Kahedin’s skill becomes almost free; Tripp flips up a damage, which Kahedin then flips down again.

With the advent of set nine, Blaster Blade and Blaster Dark Spirits are now being played in many Gold Paladin decks. Their drawback is that they retire when attacked, whether they are hit or not. However, with Kahedin, you can retire them for another unit before that can happen, or, also, trigger their retire skills if you can them from the deck. This is especially doable with the Tripp combination I mentioned.

Kahedin can’t call a unit that is able to attack, with the exception of Pellinore, but keeps the flow of top deck calls going in a way that Viviane just can’t. She is definitely worthy of consideration in any Gold Paladin deck.

Rating: 5/5 – Retire that trigger unit that you had to call before and make it more useful.
