Sir Glorious

This guy's a prat. Just look at that name. How could anyone with that name not be a prat? Obviously his parents had high hopes, and while he definitely does help the Janus out, it's really not near what Ekkyon Wayfarer, Faceless King, or Tlamexic Battlelord do for their lineages.

First up: Stats. 6V getting 3 6|8 is actually pretty decent for Valor. The only Janus creatures that can beat that are Knight of Strife and Joy and Jack-in-the-Box, and, since no one plays Jack-in-the-Box, leaves you with just the other knight. All things considered, Sir Glorious is about as close to rock solid as you can get, which is a good thing.

Next, his ability. Bolster is pretty nifty, because all of the Madness members of the Legion could definitely use an extra 2 Defense points. That actually brings a lot of them into Valor territory, and let's face it, a pair of walking scissors with 4 Defense is pretty scary. However, his ability is wasted on the other Valor members of Janus, because he'll usually bring their Defense above their life, which typically makes the decision making process of your opponent a bit easier. That is not good.

Another problem is that, quite frankly, Sir Glorious is boring. He adds 2 Defense to his Janus buddies, and swings his sword for 3 power. Whoopdy-friggin-doo. Even a Blade Advance or Skirmish would have made him the best Lineage leader ever, and he'd only lose that spot when the Lost get some more members so the King can Rally them as you please. As that isn't the case, we are left hoping that Chrysotic Plague brings us a good leader, and looking at the Thrice-Crowned Androgyne, we might just have it if my hunch is correct.

That's just speculation though, so pay no mind.

Constructed: 2.5/5 for now, 4/5 if CP holds it's promise and brings us some good Janus guys to Bolster. Doesn't do much on his own, but he's definitely solid, and a wonderful team player.
Limited: 2/5 At the very least, he has decent stats for his cost, unlike Monday's All-Seeing Mage. However, the fact that he won't have many people to Bolster does make him little better than a vanilla figure, which, as vanilla Janus go, Mirrorman beats soundly.
