It's promo week here at Pojo CotD, and leading us off is one of the most iconic and well-known of the batch. Alfred Early accompanied some pretty sweet moments in the anime, and moreover, it was one of the first promotional cards to actually become part of anime canon (most are absent). Not to mention it's something of a plot device to make up for Aichi's singleton Blaster Blade needing to be used for way too much. 

As best buds, the future King calls Blaster Blade from the soul to the rear-guard when he is ridden. This puts another attacking unit at your disposal, and you'll probably be able to blow away a rear-guard in the process as well. That's all Alfred Early does, though, and chances are he's only going to be able to do so once. Moreover, he might not even get that one chance depending on luck of the draw. 

To avoid being dealt a 10K vanilla Grade 3, max on Blaster Blade and Solitary Knight, Gancelot. Or you could just avoid the gimmick altogether and build a Majesty Lord Blaster deck. I wouldn't judge. 1/5

Alfred Early
 
If Barcgal could still be used as your starting vanguard, there might be some sort of use for Alfred Early. Unfortunately this hasn't been the case for a long time, so we are left with no guaranteed way to ride Blaster Blade as your grade 2. You could ride him on top of Majesty Lord Blaster after using his effect to pull Blaster Blade into the soul, but then you're just wasting your 12k defense and 2 crit pressure just to play Blaster Blade again. This leaves Alfred Early inconsistent at best and a completely vanilla 10k grade 3 at worst. Even if you could guarantee Blaster Blade's existence in your soul before mid game, Alfred Early would still not be a great card - yeah, he makes your ride into a wash instead of a minus, but then he does nothing but sit on a flimsy 10k body for the rest of the game, with no way of hitting higher than 20k (and even that requires Lion Mane Stallion).
 
1/5
