Prevail Jewel Knight, Yvain
And this Jewel Knight's new trick. If you don't fancy the long wait for Salome, here's your option instead. Yvain legions with Swordmy, and for your trouble, he gets 5k and a critical if you've gathered 4 other Jewel Knights on the board. Normal skill is to gain 2k upon attacking the Vanguard.
So what we have is basically a simpler Alfred Exiv, with Jewel Knights mostly gunning to fill a board more than Seekers. One thing going for this guy compared to Alfred Exiv is that one slot could potentially be empty and you'd still get the Critical. But I'm still not feeling it; Alfred's more proactive and it's got good support at field filling and Blaster Blade Seeker for killing, so I'd still rather have Seekers.
This isn't a bad choice if you can't afford Seekers however, as a cheaper but similarly effective option. Just note your fail con is basically Salome as opposed to Thing Saver, which ain't as great.

Prevail Jewel Knight, Yvain
And so, we're looking at Swordmy's partner, Yvain.  ...Who kind of looks like Daigo.  I know Daigo's a famous actor in the show, but now he's a card too?
...What is that on his back?  A jetpack?  Or is he a human-sized Gundam from Gundam Seed?
If curious, Yvain here is named after Ywain of Arthurian Legends.
Anyway, this is the Jewel Knight Legion.  It's a continuous Legion that attacks for +2000 when not in Legion and has the chance to get an extra +5000 and +1 critical when in Legion.
So, in effect, Yvain is Seeker Egbert, Seeker Alfred and Ezzell+Alfred, just for Jewel Knights.
All things considered equal, by itself, Yvain is a bit better than Egbert is, and that's only because he doesn't need to counter-blast to gain the power and crit, and is only really here to give Jewel Knights a boss that isn't Salome or Ashlei R.  Even though it can swing for higher numbers, with a full field and a 10K booster in play, than either Alfred can, the mere fact that Yvain can't search the deck.
I have to say it, but it's really not good.  Sure, it can hit for bigger numbers than either Alfred, but that lack of searching really hurts it.
That's all I can say about it.
