Silver Thorn Dragon Master, Mystique Luquier
Newest toy for Pale Moon and the only way to run a reasonably pure G-Zone for them.Mystique Luquier, once per turn, absorbs two rear-guards into the soul, soulcharge 2, and then brings two Silver Thorns out from the soul to rear-guard. But you need a Luquier as the heart to do this.
So...it's a way to power up an Upright Lion for another 6k? Apart from field consistency that's the only reason I can think of for this, given the original or Venus Luquier should have filled in whatever holes there were in your field anyway. Thing is, having to go through these hoops in the hopes of Upright Lion seems a bit much, considering I can name things that can do the same thing with better support. Sure, this can go off sooner, but I don't particularly want to use anything where the RGs serve no purpose other than set up the vanguard.The end result would have to end an opponent on the spot or come very close, and this...really doesn't.
Useful for when Upright Lions are available, basically boring everywhere else.

So, we have Luquier from the future, who managed to completely over-come what happened to her and live untold Aeons after the Link Joker invasion.  Seems that Elves can turn their mana power into increased life.  Neat.
So, once per turn, you can move two of your Silver Thorn rear guards to soul, Soul Charge two and then superior call two Silver Thorns from your soul to Rear if you have a heart with Luquier in its name.
Not bad, nice and simple, allows for some nice tricks, such as powering up Upright Lion to stupidly high numbers and using Zelma to set up your field.  Yes, I know, you should have your optimum field set up by the time you play this.  However, while in theory and on paper you should, rarely does it happen in actual games.  Sometimes you have nothing in your hand you can call out to make a good field, such as having all the grade 3s in your deck, despite running only eight.
I do think that it's a staple for Silver Thorns though.
