Supremacy Dragon, Claret Sword Dragon
Warning, warning, cheaper and better card approaching.
Claret Sword Dragon is our on-Stride main Grade 3. On-Stride, you get to call from the deck a G1 or below unit for Counterblast 1. It then gains 2k power until the end of the turn. GB2 skill? Sack 2 rear-guards once a turn to gain 10k and a Critical.
Well, the first skill can be set up easy thanks to Aurageyser Dragon, but still, sacking two rear-guards (or one if it's David but that's a waste of a David) isn't brilliant unless your field sucks dick and your hand's large. It's good for cleaning up and not much more than that.
Summoning new boosters on-Stride is what you want it for. It turns a 7k booster into a 9k one for the turn, so Giva can make columns before you intercept her away, or a 12k attacker can make columns. Not a bad way to spring those Black-winged Swordbreakers either.
Given that I'm a bit more impressed by Claret's Grade 1 department than Blaster Dark "Diablo"'s, I'd call him the priority ride with BDD as the fail-con. Get him for that because the alternative does nothing at all, really.


Supremacy Dragon, Claret Sword Dragon
So here we have the other Shadow Paladin Break-Stride.  The first being Blaster Dark "Diablo", which we would have reviewed, but it was a short week that week.
Anyway, Claret here is part of a faction of Shadow Paladins that believes in the old way, that "might makes right" and sacrificing units for power is the only way to go, like Phantom Blaster Dragon from BT-04 did.  It wouldn't have been a problem, had Mordred decided to not hunt down Gust Blaster Dragon.  He left Blaster Dark in charge of the Shadow Paladins and not all of the Shadow Paladins agreed with Blaster Dark, those that didn't joined Claret in an attempt to undermine the United Sanctuary and take over.
Okay, so he has the name Claret because of his blood red sword, but I gotta say, I look at the name and wonder if his sword can double as a clarinet and play music.
So, as a Break Stride, when you stride, you CB1 to superior call a Grade 1 or less unit and call it to Rear, giving it +2000 for the turn.  Very nice when you consider you can call Black-Winged Swordbreaker to get an extra card to hand.  That's pretty cool.
That GB2 skill though...  Okay, so you can combine it with Blizza or Aurageyser to go off right away, but...
Just +10000/+1 crit for retiring two rear guards?  Okay, so you can retire David to pay for the cost, but...
I dunno, doesn't seem THAT good.  But then again, if Macha's in play, it makes it a bit easier to pay for the costs and can be used turn after turn, so it's got that going for it, which is nice.
Over-all, it's a better Break-Stride than Blaster Dark "Diablo", who apparently decided to disappear and let the next generation of heroes stop Claret, only joining in when needed, along with Phantom Blaster "Diablo" and Dragruler Revenant.
Seriously, why do all the established heroes think it's a good idea to disappear?  Sure, it lets the new guard show what they can do without support, but, come on!  You're the established heroes for a reason!  Stop disappearing and fight with the next generation already!
