Back to the main COTD
Sanctuary of Light,
Final card of the week is
Sanctuary of Light, Planetal Dragon. He's Royal
Paladin's 2nd Ride Chain apex and part of the newest
gen, so let's work down. He's 11k if you have the Grade
2 Sanctuary of Light in the soul, of course. His Limit
Break is to give every Sanctuary of Light UNIT you
control 3k when he attacks until end of turn. And his
normal skill is when ridden, you CB2 to call a Sanctuary
of Light from the deck.
So let's work our way down.
Starting with the Ride Chain itself (which unfortunately
you HAVE to run). It's basically the same as
Schwarzchild Dragon's in that the Grade 2 has to be
ridden on top of the Grade 1, otherwise you don't get a
free unit. So don't count on succeeding on it or the
bonus from it.
2nd skill to call? Well,
CB2 for +1 is bog standard. Nothing unusually good.
Planetal Dragon's only end
result however is having a field of Sanctuary of Light
cards to make columns across the board. I'm not
particularly fond of this strategy since Master of Fifth
Element doesn't need to take as much liberties and could
perform better given the support it has. Hell,
Celestials with Zerachiel can achieve similar, and again
bigger given Underlay Celestial is a thing. And at least
Zera's an assured 11k no matter what.
Planetal comes under the
category of casual to me. I don't see him being a
Sanctuary of Light, Planetal Dragon
Huh, very odd to see a Ride Chain come out in this day
and age for Vanguard.
It's a conditional 11000 Vanguard, so, what skills does
it bring to the table?
Well, for a Counter Blast of 2, you can search for any
Sanctuary of Light unit from the deck and call to a rear
guard. And its limit break...
Well, it reminds me of Master of the Fifth Element,
can't really complain about that.
Sadly, the only Sanctuary of Light units that exist are
those in the ride chain and Brightness Dragon. But,
with that Limit Break, you can make Little Storm a 10000
booster and Determinator a 12000 beater for the turn,
Again, like I mentioned with Brightness Dragon, it's
outclassed by both Ashlei Reverse and Majesty Lord
Blaster, however, I would put this in the same area as
King of Knights Alfred, honestly. It's a very solid
card and a decent sub-clan that doesn't have any
restrictions or need of especial counter blasts, so you
can mix and match this with any Royal Paladin variant
you want until your heart's content.
If there were more Sanctuary of Light units, this card
would be incredibly useful. But with only 5 differently
named units, well, it's being held back for the moment.
Hopefully more will come later.
For now though... If you want a budget Royal Paladin
deck and don't want to run Jewel Knights, try this out.
It's not bad.
