School Special Investigator, Leo-pald Chaser
We should be getting a new guy reviewing with us this week. A welcome to him, I suppose. Pity it's a slow start, since the boss needs to be...elsewhere...this week. So only three cards this week.
No matter. We start off with Leo-pald Chaser. If you have a Leo-pald as a heart, when it attacks, it grants 4k to a unit, then retires it at the end of the turn, and if it is retired, you get to add a card with the same name as the retired card to your hand.
So, I'm assuming that this is meant to combine with the original Leo-pald because let's be honest, it really doesn't have a whole lot of synergy with its Reverse form. So assuming you use this with the old...you get a power boost to make columns if you can, your G-Unit fades away when the end of the turn arrives, the unit dies, you search, then Leo-pald's Limit Break revives the retired unit. Or at least I assume this is the case. So for your effort, it's a Counterblast free +1 to you. This is not of course including units that can wash in advantage for Counterblast 1, but it's not something you can do constantly since Chaser's skill is already doing that.
All in all, I can't really say that this is anything to put Leo-pald truly back on the map. It doesn't have a lot of tricks unique to only it to stand out.

Today's card is Leo-pald's Stride, Leo-pald Chaser, When he attacks the VG, if you have a Leo-pald Heart, one of your RGs gets +4000 and gets retired at the end of the turn, and when it does get retired you search your deck for another copy of it.  

It's decent. Pairs well with the Original Leo-pald's LB, (Don't let the benefits of Leo-R fool you, the original works much better with this card and Stride in general) and obviously there are plenty of other ways to turn this skill into a straight plus, like Duckill or Crayon Tiger, who can set up multiple attacks for even more advantage. The overall issue would just be that it's kinda weak except as a First Stride and that Great Nature isn't any better than 'decent' at the moment. So, how does Leo stack up to other Great Nature decks? He has strong competition with Tester Fox and Bigbelly, but Leo has the edge of being faster than both of them in terms of how soon he can start gaining advantage. 

Rating: 3/5

Art: 3/5 Looks more flashy than ferocious

Card Design: 4/5 Supports combos well

So, we have a short week this week, and I'm getting this in at the last possible moment here, so, let's get to it, only three cards this week.
Like half of the Fighter's Collection cards, this one needs a specific Heart to function at full ability.
On attack, pump one of your rearguards up by 4000 and then it dies at the end of the turn, when the unit dies, go search a copy of it from the deck and add it to your hand.
Very nice, it's not as good as combining the Tester Fox Legion with Stride, but it's still solid, giving you both offense and defense.
If you have a Leo-pald deck, give it a go.  If you have the Tester Fox Legion and no Leo-pald, don't bother getting Leo-pald just for this.  It's good, but not THAT good.  Then again, I may be missing something, I'm not sure right now.
