What's up, you guys?!  We're now in the waning days of "(Un)known Promo Week", and today, we have something that I'll probably be bias about...

King Seahorse
Power: 6000
Grade 1
Clan: Granblue
Race: Kraken (Fun fact: The only one in the game)
[AUTO](RC): [Choose a card from your hand, and discard it] When an attack hits during the battle this unit boosted, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.

            ...King Seahorse has a pretty generic effect that I personally believe benefits this kind of effect the most.  Stop me if you heard this before: Grade 1, 6,000 power, an effect to discard a card and draw a card when it boost an attack that hits...how many clans have this kind of effect?  Answer: Almost every single one of them, but why exactly would I prefer this one?  It's simple, where do cards go when discarded?  The Drop Zone,  and which clan benefits from the Drop Zone?  Granblue!  King Seahorse is made to help not just readjust your hand and give you better cards, but it also benefits in the fact that what you discard can be potentially resurrected later on down the game.

            The way I see it, if you're playing Granblue, give this card a shot as a tech; it might pleasantly surprise you.

Rating: 4/5
Art: 3/5 (It's a giant Seahorse...I got nothing...)
Next Time: More giant gold guys...wonderful...

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!

King Seahorse
4th card of the week is the only KRAKEN-type in Vanguard is King Seahorse. He's an Aermo clone in that when he boosts an attack that hits, discard a card and draw a card.
He's neat, I suppose, but I really don't see anywhere where he can reasonably go. To run him you pretty much need to have Blueblood in your deck, which admittedly is forced if you want to scale the deck for Crossrides, but even then he STILL wouldn't be here because his ability falls short compared to other options and he's a weak booster.
I just don't see any Granblue deck ever having room for him. He's neat, but there's better.

Moving on to other promo cards you may or may not know about we have King Seahorse. He’s a grade 1 booster who if it boosts and the attack hits, discard one card draw a new one. This guy  normally I wouldn’t like in any other type of deck but where Granblue are concerned, getting cards into the grave is amazing. Personally this is one of the sole instance I’d like something like this. If his attack was a smidge higher I’d consider him perfect. But as he is a little weaker….he’s useful but again….far from perfect.

4.0 above average but not too much so.
