What's up, you guys?! We're at the sorta-kinda-halfway point of "Spring Break/Exam Week", and today, we have probably one of the better Break Rides that's currently out:

Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom
Power: 11000
Grade 3
Clan: Shadow Paladin
Race: Elf
[AUTO] Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1)] When a «Shadow Paladin» rides this unit, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose your vanguard, and until end of turn, that unit gets [Power]+10000 and search your deck for up to one grade 2 or less «Shadow Paladin», call it to (RC), shuffle your deck, and that unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

...One of the new boys in town...well, not as new as Eva or Dantalion, but still new nonetheless. Mordred has all of the necessary tools for a Break Ride: 11,000 Power, a way to be at 13,000 Power (by just attacking the Vanguard...that's it.), and a really good Break Ride effect. When you Break Ride, you can Counterblast 1 to give your Vanguard 10,000 Power, and you'll also be able to call a Grade 2 or lower Shadow Paladin from your deck to the field and give that new unit an extra 5,000 Power. Need a booster? Get a Dorint, T. Masquerade or Charon. Need a attacker? Get a Rugos, Tartu, N. Masquerade or Blaster Dark. Want to get rid of a rear-guard while you're at it? Then get everybody's favorite fanboy card in Blaster Dark Revenger to nuke it! The only drawback that this card has is that you have to pay a Counterblastto use the Break Ride, but given what you can get out of it, I see it as a fair payment.

Overall, Mordred is one of those cards where, in the right hands and deck, can definitely turn the tide of a game back your way with what you can pull off with this card!

Overall: 4.5/5
Art: 4/5
Next Time: Silver Thorn Midnight Bunny...that's all I can think of for this!

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


Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom

Next up this week is the Break Ride for Revengers and indeed for Shadow Paladins, Mordred Phantom. A Break Ride, that for CB1, not only gets you 10k, but also summons a Grade 2 from the deck, and then gives it 5k power.

Really not that overwhelming by himself. Because all you accomplished for CB1 was a +0 wash. In a deck that's supposed to be all about abusing Dorint to minimize costs. So even if you use this to call a Blaster Dark in front of Dorint, the CB involved would still add up to a normal Blaster Dark column, which we want to avoid.

He's not the best Break Ride out there, but the option of a search is nice, I suppose. In certain situations you could get an emergency Blaster Dark if you've lost Claudius, need something dead, but can't afford to devote on attack to killing it, Tartu if your field's rather bare, Dorint if you don't have one, or Darkbond if you need boosters. Most of the time though, I don't see any need to totally rely on him other than to give Raging Form teeth for the finishing blow.

What I'm trying to say is, don't spam this guy. All he'll do is eat resources for no new card advantage. And resources wins you things in Revengers.
