Dark Knight, Irgahn Vert 

Note: Same clause as Distress Dragon: anything that can be treated as two sacrifices will not work, as they're getting retired via an effect. 

Okay, how is it fair Shadow Paladin get to retire better than Kagero? It is not. Well, for basically the same timing as Blazing Burst (4th Stride, if the opponent actually lived that long), you get to +3-5 overall, and clean up an otherwise poor field for something better. Otherwise, this is one of those cards that looks unbalanced but is actually pretty fair. It's ACT, so there's no way to spam multi-attacks with it, there are few viable targets left for his timing, and it takes its use towards decking out in a clan built around thinning a deck. 

Use at one for clutch. Although that's a pretty blanket statement for all GB8s. What do you want from me? 



So what we have here feels like a bizzare fusion of Dragut and Immortal Galleon, yet somehow is a Shadow Paladin instead. Calling 5 units with +15k each can get pretty bonkers, and retiring 5 units is rarely a cost for Shadows, considering Belial Owl exists. It's not strictly necessary, considering how powerful PBD and Spectral are, but if push comes to shove this is a powerful finisher
