What's up, Rogue Squad?! For today's Card of the Day, we're going to take a look at a new take on a old card:

Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel Scissors
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Gold Paladin
Race: Human
[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (2) & Soul Blast (2)] Unlock all of your locked cards, if the number of «Gold Paladin» rear-guards you have is five, until end of turn, this unit gets [Power]+10000/[Critical]+1, and at the end of that turn, Soul Charge (1), choose a card from your damage zone, and turn it face up.
[CONT](VC):During your turn, this unit gets [Power]+1000 for each of your «Gold Paladin» rear-guards.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

...I am honestly very indifferent about this card. It's basically Blond Ezel with an 11,000 body (that's always welcomed) with the original +1,000 for each rear-guard on your field, which can make him 16,000 by himself, which is also really nice. His Limit Break is also mind of unique as you Counterblast AND Soulblast 2 to unlock all of your rear-guards (that THAT, Chaos-Breaker!), and if you have a full field, then +10,000 power and a Critical to boot. I'd normally complain on how the cost is pretty pricy, but then I saw you unflip a damage AND Soulcharge 1 at the end of the turn, so it essentially makes this payment a LOT more bearable as it pays for half of it while it expects you to do what you can with the second half. The one thing that really bugs me about this card is that this SHOULD be a Crossride to Blond Ezel...but it isn't, so the only way Blonde Ezel is even viable nowadays is if you use the Superior Ride combo with Kryph to add more Soul for Scissors.

Overall, Scissors is a pretty good mid game card, but not as much in any other scenario.

Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 4/5
Next Time: Welp...it's the remix to Ignition.

Go Rogue...Go Pro!

Salvation Lion, Grand Ezel Scissors


You really cannot comprehend the indignity I felt about this card. Ezel Scissors has so much that's wrong about it it's unreal. For Counterblast 2 and Soulblast 2, you unlock all your rear-guards, and then if you have 5, he gains 10k and a Critical. Then at the end, you unflip a damage and Soulcharge 1. He also gets 1000 for every rear-guard.


I find this card appalling, and not just because Late Game Crit sucks, as I've always maintained. It's also because it completely undermines what was Link Joker's point and just made it a reason not to use it. The capacity to screw Link Joker for what is effectively CB1 and Soulblast 1 is disgusting. Worse still, he's almost completely useless against any other deck, because then he's just a bog-standard Late Game Crit gainer who can be blocked with a Perfect Guard like everything else.


This thing is an insult and I hope more people use top-tier stuff just to prove how flaccid it is against anything that isn't Link Joker.
