Go Rogue,
Go Pro

What's up, Rogue Squad?! So for this week, we're going to be taking a look at promo cards, so say hello to Promo Week, and today. We're going to be taking a look at...

Sword of Hope, Richard
Power: 6000
Grade 1
Clan: Royal Paladin
Race: Human
[AUTO]:[Soul Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (RC) from your deck, if you have a «Royal Paladin» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.

...in short, this is Dindrane for Royal Paladins...and personally, better than Dindrane! Why? It's really simple honestly; it's a matter of how the characteristics of the two Paladin decks really differ. For Gold Paladins, since you're mainly calling the top card of the deck, you're relying way too much on the top card of the deck to be something good. However, Royal Paladins have a really good way of searching the deck to call certain units to the field. Personally, Richard here can definitely be utilized the best with Sanctuary Guard Dragon as his effect can help call Richard to the field, utilize his effect and also boost Sanctuary Guard Dragon's Limit Break all at the same time. The 6,000 power is lacking, but the effect to draw a card definitely compensates the small power.

Not many people will be able to utilize Richard, but to the ones that can, kudos and cheers to y'all.

Rating: 3.5/5
Art: 3/5

...Because we can't review BT14 yet, it's yet another PROMO week! And kicking us off is a card that in my mind is long overdue, Sword of Hope Richard. For a Soulblast of 1 when called from the deck, you draw a card.


It's a pity that few cards can actually summon him, though. Sanctuary Guard Dragon and the original Alfred are the only ones that spring to mind as I type. I will say that Sanctuary Guard desperately wanted this card because easy plus. That and there's probably more room Grade 2-wise than the old Alfred deck, since with only 6k power a 10k Vanilla is kind of forced.


I have yet to see a decent Sanctuary Guard deck, so I can't speak for all of its entire potential, but largely it's fairly poor outside of the two decks described above.
