White Lily Musketeer Captain, Cecilia
Oh dear. So first off, we need Cecilia as the heart...well, if we ignore the fact she's only going to be 25k base on appearance, so no magic numbers for you...the end result is, she can CB1 and retire two Musketeers to look at the top 5 cards of your deck, then call 3 Musketeers among them to separate rear-guard circles, and shuffle the deck.
I ask this...why would we EVER do that?
Sure, maybe a +1 for CB1 sounds efficient. Problem is, unless you somehow wind up summoning a crap field from your roulette playstyle, your field should already look reasonably decent, especially since there is at least a reasonable level of control; sacking two cards away for a chance of a field that will only look slightly better at first but then work out as shit later doesn't sit right. Not even just so we can have the Dandelion Musketeer be a 9k booster all the time.
There's also the issue of what purpose this would serve in the long run. Fill the drop zone for base Cecilia's Limit Break? What the hell sort of good is that going to do you now when the opponent should be at a stage where they can bring out their beefy pseudo GB2 G-Unit to smash your ass? You won't be able to Stride on the same turn you use it, so you're just stuck with a crappy power Vanguard and nothing to actually murder the opponent before then.
Musketeers are not a thing and short of one that can re-stand or something probably never will. Just run G-Neo Nectar if you really have to.

White Lily Muskeeter Captain, Cecelia
If you have a heart with Cecelia in its name, CB1, retire two rear guards and check the top five cards for up to three Musketeer rear guards and call them to R.
When I first looked at it, I thought "search your whole deck for up to three Muskeeters?!"  Then I read it more carefully and went "awww!"
Anyway, it's not a bad skill, I'm drawing a blank as to what you could retire that you would have called out.  Do Muskeeters have a Luck Bird clone?  Hmm, nope, they do have a Grom clone though.
I suppose you could always sacrifice Rebecca after she uses her skill, letting you get some more mileage out of her.
Ernst and Alain work well too, but they're triggers, then again, Alain works if called to R from one of your Musketeer skills.
Over-all, it's pretty decent, I think, and worth a spot in your G-deck if you're running Musketeers and have Cecelia.
