Darkpride Dragon
One of Claret Sword's new cards. As his GB1 skill, if one of your own card's skills retires him and the Vanguard is Claret Sword, you Countercharge 1 and superior call Darkquartz Dragon from the deck.
Simple no? Which sometimes is best. He 1:1's himself and gives you another Counterblast, so that's already a good point in its favour, considering Claret decks don't really want to go TOO overboard with Davids for cheap retiring owing to how it's done at the expense of another card. It's 9k so columns don't suffer and if combo'd right can make a column 21k, since Quartz becomes a 10k booster on the turn it appears.
G Shadows became much more efficient with this. Grab these. It's R, so it should be easy.

Sorry about yesterday, wasn't around much of the weekend, so I missed getting Pir's review out.  So, Darkpride Dragon here, at GB1, if you have a Claret Sword Dragon Vanguard and this is retired by one of your skills, you get to search for Darkquartz Dragon and call it to R and Counter-Charge 1.
Darkquartz Dragon, BTW, has a GB1 skill that, when placed on R, gives your Vanguard +3000 power if you have a Claret Sword Dragon vanguard.
Um, yeah, do I need to say it?  If you run Claret Sword Dragon, this is a staple.
Why does the Chaotic Evil version of Shadow Paladins get the cool toys?

Darkpride Dragon  

Hey, sorry for skipping last week, but I know pretty much nothing about Touken Ranbu anyway, so whatever. Today's card is Claret support, Darkpride Dragon. When it's retired for a cost after GB1 and your VG name has Claret Sword in it, it searches for Darkquartz dragon, which gains +3k when it's called after GB1 and Claret is your VG. Oh, and it flips a damage.   

It's infringing on Tachikaze mechanics for sure, but the card itself is very good. It essentially makes Aurageyser Doomed retire 1, draw 2, retire up to two along with David, making the generally overcosted skill Doomed has. Being limited to Claret obviously means it can't go in the most powerful SP deck at the moment, Revengers, but it's a powerful card nonetheless where it belongs. It would be better if the G1 called the G2, because Claret superior calls a G1 anyway, but they did this for balance reasons I guess. 

Staple in Claret, though I will say that you won't need 4 Darkquartz due to it being able to be tutored by this card.   

Rating: 3.5/5

Art: 4/5 Nice and Edgy

Card Design: 3/5 Not a big fan of taking Tachi's mechanic when SP already has one of the most versatile possible skill sets of any clan.
