Absolution Lion King, Mithril Ezel
Oh yay more Link Joker hosing that was basically unnecessary! Mithril Ezel needs an Ezel heart to work, but as an ACT skill, you CB1 and G Persona Blast to unlock all your rear-guards, then superior call one of the top 5 cards of your deck. The called unit's original power is then doubled until the end of the turn.
Urgh. It's really not that brilliant outside of Link Joker. The +1 is certainly nice enough and there is leeway regarding the summon, but a column game hardly impresses when I can name decks that can do that too and better. It's basically just another way to try and sack back advantage against Kagero and similar. Ezel's not a great deck to use anyway and this only increases the reliance on this guy to actually provide any decent punch.
Pretty boring, overall.

I guess Takuto came back, and with a Vengeance.
What we have here is an Ezel that combines the abilities of Blonde, Platinum and Grand Scissors into one card.
That's cool.  Anyway, CB1, Persona Flip to unlock your field, then call one of the top five cards of your deck to R, doesn't have to be open, BTW, and then increase the power of this card by the power of the card you just called.  Also, power up the card you just called by its own power.
So, unlocking (Grand Scissors), superior calling (Blonde Ezel), powering himself up (Blonde Ezel) and powering up an ally (Platinum Ezel), all in one?
Seems pretty good, IMO.  If Takuto had this against Reverse Takuto, Aichi wouldn't have needed to use Monarch Alfred to beat the Link Joker.
Problem is, does anyone still have classic Gold Paladins anymore?
I'd rate it higher, but Liberators ARE better than classic Gold Paladins.
