Seeker, Alfred Exiv
Oh yeah, Happy
belated New Year to you guys, I guess.
Seeker week, and in honor of the new Royals, we start
off with Alfred. Yup, another one. This unit legions
with Blaster Blade OR Blaster Blade Seeker (so if you
legion with the former, you fulfill the requirements of
placing it on VG circle and get to retire anything you
want), and your reward? He powers up by 1000 for every
other Seeker (including the mate, for a total of 6k max
power) and then if you gathered 5 rear guards, he also
gains a critical. His normal skill is to counterblast 2
Seekers and then summon a new Seeker from the deck.
I think this
card alone pretty much puts MLB Thing Saver out of a
job. Think about it. You need to generate 6 total soul
to use Thing Saver twice. Riding this, then Legioning
alongside something like File, then riding Thing Saver
generates 5, and after using Thing's skill, you have
exactly 3 soul to start the fun again. Total loss
incurred: -1, allowing for natural plussing over the
Majesty Lord Blaster requires a -2 from the field, then
riding Thing Saver for what is essentially the same
strategy? Total loss incurred: -3. And Alfred at least
has Mid Game crit like MLB. Yes, okay, maybe you have
one extra soul, but you'd have to use Margal for the
third shot, and the one extra card generated from Margal
REALLY doesn't outweigh the heavy loss you incurred at
So you really
are just better off with mono Seekers. For consistency
if nothing else.
Alfred Exiv is
certainly not bad, seeing as how his Critical's pretty
much free and he works towards Thing Saver's death
train. He's replacing any other ace you can think of
Light Origin Seeker, Alfred Exiv
Light of the past, shine forth and bring a new future,
enter the fray, the true King, Light Origin Seeker,
Happy New Years, everyone. It's Seeker week and to
start off we're looking at the King of the Seekers,
Now, Alfred here is neither a Type 1 nor a Type 2
Legion, so, I guess he's the Type 3 legion that the
vanilla Legions are. That is, continuous.
Anyway, Alfred here is a Dual Legion, that is, he can
Legion with either Blaster Blade of the past or the
present. ...Which is either Blaster Blade Seeker (Past)
or Blaster Blade (Present).
Oi, time travel hurts my head when I think about it.
In fact, he was brought from the past into the present
to fight off the Deletors, much like how, as a
Liberator, he fought off the Invaders.
As for the effects, when he's in Legion, he gets +1000
for each other Seeker on your side of the field.
Which, it should be noted, includes Blaster Blade
Seeker. And if you get 5 rear guards, which is
easy to do for most Seeker decks, since most do
searching and powering up, he gets an extra critical.
So, with Blaster Blade Seeker, the Legion will be
Ouch. Most of the time, when a Vanguard gains a
crit, it's not that great. Even with legions that
rule still applies if that's all the Vanguard does.
However, this guy's a Dual Legion, which means that he
still works with the original version of Blaster Blade.
And, it should be noted, if people are confused, that if
you Legion with the original Blaster Blade, you have an
on-legion retire ability. Granted, it's for 2
counter blasts, but you can retire any rear guard your
opponent has when you Legion in that case.
Dang, that's really good. But, wait, if this is
Alfred, shouldn't he have some sort of ability to
search? We already got the power up ability, so...
Oh, right, the non-Legion skill. For 2 Especial
Counter Blasts, you can Superior Call any Seeker to the
field from the deck.
Not much more I can say, as far as being a Seeker boss
and a Seeker Legion, this guy's pretty much tops, even
though STD is really good, compared to Alfred, STD only
has one distinct advantage, which is against Link Joker,
any other match-up, Alfred's just as good, if not
So, if you're not running STD, you should be running
Alfred, he's way too good to pass up.
Legion Rating: 4/5
Light Origin Seeker, Alfred Exiv
HAPPY NEW YEAR VAN-GUARDIANS!!!! And we are off to a
great start!!!! We have the Legion version of
the original Royal Paladin Alfred but by far a better
unit. This is also the first and only Legion unit that
can legion with two different cards. Very unique and
allows for the original Blaster Blade to get some love
So Alfred's effects are very cool, he gets 1k for each
Seeker rear guard for when you are in Legion so allowing
for additional 5k if you have those Seeker units and
also gains an extra critical if you have five or more
rear guards (regardless if Seeker or not). His third
ability is a a special counter blast ability and it
allows for you to help fill your field with a Seeker
unit, pretty good especially with his second ability
getting all kinds of unique effects when you have rear
Alfred was printed as a RRR, SP, and a Legion
Rare.......WHY!! Far to many printings of him and his
RRR will never go above $8.00 in value, where I think
this card is meant to be considering there are far
better cards you can play in a Seeker deck. My one and
last final thing about this card is that in a Seeker
deck he is very spashable because of Blaster Blake
Seeker who literally can Legion with three other cards.
That is all folks!!
