YAY for something actually not terrible. Black-winged Swordbreaker is a Dindrane clone. In that when called from the deck, you Soulblast 1 to draw 2 cards.
Low point is that with only 6k power, you'll need to pair her with a 10k+ attacker to really get the most mileage out of her. So where would she be useful? Well, thankfully Shadow Paladins can search for cards at will more easily than Golds, so there's more toolboxing with her to be had, which is nice. Macha can set up Swordbreaker, turning a CB2 into a +2 for you, although beware the bad column. Revengers can actually use her well enough too; Judgebau Revenger doesn't restrict itself to just Revengers to call with its skill, so it's CB1 for +3 (+1 from Judgey, +2 from the Swordbreakers). Pity only Desperate Dragon can use her later (but he's terrible anyway).
All in all, this is okay. A simple card usually has a simple review. But I wouldn't cry if I pulled her.

Wow, a Shadow Paladin that's not a Revenger?  Haven't seen that in ages.
Anyway, when this card is placed on R from the deck, you can soul blast 1 to draw a card.
Sadly, the fact that it's not a Revenger hurts it, as neither Tartu nor Mana can grab this card.
However, it will work well with Macha (set 4), Judgebau Revenger and Mordred Phantom.  I suppose if you use Badhabh Caar (also set 4) and are feeling lucky it'll work, but, not ideal.
Sadly, the mere fact that it lacks the name Revenger really hurts this card, but it's a very, very solid unit for a Shadow Paladin deck.
Rating: 3/5
