Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon - #G-BT08/004EN Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2016

[Stride]-Stride Step-[Choose one or more cards with the sum of their grades being 3 or greater from your hand, and discard them] Stride this card on your (VC) from face down. [AUTO](VC) Unite (This ability is active if you have called two or more units to (RC) or (GC) during this turn):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card named "Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon" from your G zone, and turn it face up & Choose two of your rear-guards, and put them on the bottom of your deck in any order] When this unit attacks, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at seven cards from the top of your deck, search for up to the same number of cards from among them as the number of face up cards in your G zone, call them to separate (RC), shuffle your deck, and if you called three or more cards, Counter Charge (1)/Soul Charge (1).

Rating: 3.5 / 5.0

Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon
Oh look, an alternative finisher. Glorious Reigning Dragon's skill is active once Unite is, and it's on attack. You CB1, G Persona Blast and send two of your rear-guards to the bottom of the deck, then you look at the top 7 cards of your deck, call units among them equal to the number of face-up cards in your G Zone to separate rear-guard circles, shuffle the rest back to your deck, then if you called 3 or more units this way, Countercharge 1 and Soulcharge 1.
So for best results you're looking at a +1 hard advantage to you, at least another attack from calling a whole column, and a soul back after paying an essentially free Counterblast. You're supposed to combine this with Marcia, Jeffry and his ilk to clean a field ready to call another column to attack. The problem is how slow he is. To build up to him as a quick finisher you'd need to Stride something else then G Guardian your way to a +3 call, otherwise Radiant Sword Gurguit is usually the strictly better finisher.
Useful enough. Run at 4 as your main backup plan when Gurguit fails.
P.S This or Spearcross? I say, well why not both?

[Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon]

Now this is something that I like to see. Before this card came out, in a Gold Paladin deck, the only way to ensure 4+ attacks on something would be to call units over units with stuff like Pwill, which would be wasteful unless the opponent was at death's door (5 damage). So let's break this down. One counterblast and a persona flip is easy as hell. Refreshing columns and cycling units back into the deck makes you deck out slower, since you usually burn through your deck by spamming guard off the top of the deck. And, if you called three or more units, you get your counterblast back as well as 1 soul that'll help with G4 Gurguit's cost, your deck's nuke. 

This Golden Dragon is all the midgame you're gonna need until more Gold support comes out (which is sooner than you think). Grab your 4 copies and ditch Golden Spear. Yeah, Glorious requires you to trigger Unite and Golden Spear doesn't, but cmon: it's not that hard.
