What's up, you guys?! Sorry about not doing a review yesterday; I was just coming back from a vacation in Arkansas and never had the chance to do Friday or yesterday's cards, so how about we take a look at what we have today...

Barcgal Liberator
Power: 7000
Grade 1
Clan: Gold Paladin
Race: High Beast
[AUTO](RC): When an attack hits a vanguard during the battle that this unit boosted a unit named "Blaster Blade Liberator", look at up to three cards from the top of your deck, search for up to one card with "Liberator" in its card name, call it to (RC) as [Rest], and put the rest on the bottom of your deck in any order.

...I really can't say much about this card. Barcgal grew up by being a Grade 1 with 7,000 Power, but it'll only use it's effect when it's with Blaster Blade Liberator. Granted, their combined power is 16,000 as it's good against anything that's at 11,000, but once a player is at Crossride, it makes this card less sufficient. Even then, if the boosted attack somehow does hit, then the effect would still be mediocre at best. You look at the top 3 cards (which is actually not bad) to call a Liberator from those 3 in Rest...in Rest...really??? So basically, even if you do pull off the effect, the new card can't do anything once it touches the field, so it's kind of pointless.

Overall, there's a reason why Barcgal is one of the cheapest RR's in the new set.

Rating: 2/5

Barcgal Liberator

 

The second card in my Shameless Week of Self-Promotion is a card that I don't actually see ANYONE use despite my protests, Barcgal Liberator. This is the reason Blaster Blade Liberator should be in the Liberator deck, and not just because retiring things is good. When he boosts BBL and the attack hits, one of the top 3 cards of your deck is called at rest to an open RG circle. Now you see. If I want to top-deck, I want at least some degree of control over what I get, like this. Add onto the fact that he's a 7k booster, which is pretty decent, and there's really not much of an excuse NOT to use him.

 

I find that the nicest way to use Barcgal is in a Liberator deck designed for pressure. Barcgal and BBL in one column, something on-hit like Escrad in the other, and your Vanguard. Immediately, you make the opponent decide whether they want to let through the more expensive and chance-y column, or the more reliable, but less pressure-inducing column. Certainly beats boring vanilla play, in my mind, so why wouldn't you?

 

He's a nice pressure unit, and not a bad booster either. Not much reason not to run considering in his own deck he should fill every open booster slot possible.

 

3/5
