Noble Arms Gallatin is a very similar version (just specifically for these Warriors) of an old Magic card called Stim Pack...remember that? It gave you 700 attack now for a 200 attack decrease each turn after. This, only able to be controlled one at a time, and to a Warrior, gives 1000 attack now, and loses 200 each turn as well. It can also be equipped to a face up Noble Knight you control, as you've heard, if destroyed face-up. 1000 attack is a good increase, and it would take 5 turns to lose said increase, but come on...you're better off without it.


1/5 both Formats
Art: 4/5


Gallatin is something that should do well in this format. An equip card that attaches to a Warrior-Type monster and it gains 1000 ATK. But during your standby phases, the equipped monster loses 200 ATK. If this face-up card is destroyed and sent to the graveyard, you can target one face up Warrior-Type Noble Knight monster you control and equip this card to that target. You can only activate this effect once per turn. Most equip cards do not like to be destroyed, not this one, as soon as it's destroyed, it can go right back on the field to a face up Noble Knight card. A card that can recycle itself is pretty good. Gallatin gives a good ATK boost to any Warrior monster you control, but with that losing 200 ATK downside. I say it's worth a spot in any decent Noble Knight deck.

Hey guys, today we are going to head towards the end of the Noble Knight series with Noble Arms Gallatin one of the first cards that debuted with the Archetype. This, by himself really isn't a great card. The 1000 boost is nice but you have to reduce it by 200 during every standby phase which makes me wonder who even cares about attack boosts? There are some decent combos with this card, but the other Noble Arms cards do it a little better. Overall not bad if you are making a Noble Knight deck but horrid anywhere else.

Adv: 2/5

Today’s card in one that we will want to play in threes in a Noble Knight deck. While it can be played in any Warrior deck, it is the Noble Knight deck that can make the most use of this card by giving them their additional power. What noble Arms – Gallatin gives you is the ability to attack over just about any monster in the game. 1000 attack is nothing to sneeze at. If you combine it with yesterday’s card of the day with 1900 attack, you will have a 2900 beat stick at your disposal. If you Xyz summon a monster like Blade Armor Ninja, you can attack for 3200 twice. Heroic Champion – Excalibur will give you 5000 in attack.

I do not see the 200 attack decrease per turn as an issue as Gallatin will probably not be on the field long enough to have that matter. Even though it is an equip card, which I frown upon, it is one of the better equip cards for a Noble Knight deck after Noble Arms – Destiny and need to be run in threes. While it can be run in any Warrior build, I would refrain from doing that as running equip cards outside of a Noble Night build usually amounts to a negative one every time.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5


Noble Knight monsters (not counting Joan) are based off one of the Knights of the Round Table, and all of the currently released Noble Arms are meant to be their swords (thankfully you can equip them to any Noble Knight you want; if you could only equip them to the same Knight, that would be horrible!). The Noble Arms are a series of Equip Cards; at the time of this publication, there are four, and it is reasonable that more will be made. They can only be equipped to Warrior monsters, and if these get destroyed, they can be picked up again by a Noble Knight. Equip Spells are normally shunned as they tend to get minimal benefit but are so easily destroyed; the recyclable factor of the Noble Arms make them a lot more playable.
1000 ATK is usually the standard along which Equip Cards are gauged. This is because Axe of Despair is the Equip that gives the highest amount of ATK (1000) without any large costs or special conditions that need to be fulfilled. Even then, United We Stand and Mage Power can both give a tremendous amount of power with very little difficulty. That said, what can Gallatin do? Oh, you give 1000 ATK and that drops by 200 every passing turn. With no other effects. That’s…er, very cute.
Ok, technically, Gallatin does have three other effects, the standard Noble Arms effects. Two of them are limitations: Only Warriors can use it and you can only have one copy out at a time. The last effect, however, is extremely important, and it’s what makes this card actually useful: Once per turn, I can regenerate it if it gets destroyed. This is important because the point of Noble Knights is to equip the same Noble Arms to multiple monsters to get card advantage. Even though ALL Noble Arms can do this anyway, only one other Noble Arms can actually increase ATK (Caliburn), and Gallatin gives double that amount.
Despite how much I scorned at it before, a 1000 ATK boost is actually not bad in helping jumping over big monsters or helping do extra damage. As such, this card is King Artorigus’ main source of power (without his swords, he’s just a weak, old man). The -200 ATK part, while frustrating, should not be a great concern. The whole thing is reset once Gallatin gets un-equipped, something that Medraut, Gwalchavad, and Artorigus can all do with ease. One last note, although it’s not the ideal use of this card, you can equip it to Blade Armour Ninja (who should be used with Noble Knights anyway) to make the most of the double-attack feature.
Trad: 1.5/5 (not recommended at all but if you have your heart set on using Noble Knights with this format you don’t have much other options)
Adv: 3/5 (of course, given how specialized it is, you shouldn’t use it at all unless you have a large amount of Noble Knights)
Aesthetics: 4.9/5 Gallatin represents the sword of Noble Knight Gawayn, who is based off of Sir Gawain, and he is usually seen as the nephew of King Arthur and next in line for the throne, as well as Lancelot’s best friend. Another quality of him is that his power grows over the morning and is tripled by noon, but after that, it will drop again and he is weakest at night, which can be reflected in this card’s effect. The morning sun (at least I think it’s morning) is a nice touch, and the village underneath the cliff adds to the pastoral image.
