Well, of course I was going to save this for last. The
new face of meta Royal Paladin. Needing a Sanctuary
Guard unit as the heart (so at least 2 choices if you
don't mind a crap 10k base), it powers up the entire
front row by 3k for every G1 or below rear-guard that
Well, meta was never any real indication of quality to
me, so if you look at it carefully, what does it bring
to the table? 9k to every column for a turn potentially
sounds pretty good, 12k if you're running G1s that can
Swiss-Army as decently strong attackers. That's good,
but not a deal-breaker to me. So of course, we have to
look at the ways it can be set up. Most people run this
with a Jewel Knight base, using Swordmy to call cheap
boosters and Shellie to Swiss-army attack and milk
Regalie to death. Since you don't need Jewel Knight RGs
for this I can see the logic behind it; if it's easy to
adjust, just using all Jewel Knight triggers and if you
feel you need to, running the Jewel Knight PG, Swordmy
becomes decently consistent.
Maybe it's because I main Kagero and it's designed to
fuck up formations exactly like this, but I understand
why this is a thing. Sanctuary Guard Regalie is
vulnerable to anything that can do an easy board-wipe
(Brawlers, for example) but it's a decent build overall.
Holy Dragon, Sanctuary Guard Regalie
Wow, so Bushiroad remembered Sanctuary Guard Dragon?
Well, there's Sanctuary Guard Guarantee, which is a
promo that gets +3000 at GB1 for each of your grade 1
rear guards, then there's Archer of Sanctuary that comes
out in G-BT04 that calls Grade 1s to the field, with no
GB tied to it.
Also, no sub-clan tied to this. Of course,
Sanctuary Guard Dragon is hard as heck to get a hold of,
being only from the Mega Trial deck and the price NEVER
FREAKING WENT DOWN for it. Plus Guarantee being a
promo... Yeah, this deck is going to be kind of
Even worse since it's doing what G-era Royals want to
do, but better.
Even works with Swordmy (aka Cancer Cat) pretty well.
Oh, sorry, I was supposed to be reviewing Regalie, not
the whole deck, right?
If you have a Sanctuary Guard Heart, this unit gives
your whole front line +3000 for each grade 1 or lower
rear guard, which is a possible maximum boost of 15000,
provided you're running the GB1 10K beaters. Most
likely, you'll get a "mere" 9000 power boost to your
whole front line, which still turns Swordmy into an
18000 rear guard for one turn.
Also, Jewel Knights don't care WHO their Vanguard is,
most of them only care about the rear guards, so you can
mix this with Heloise as your starter, making Regalie
swing in for 43000 if you have a full rear guard line of
Yeesh, that's really strong.
Course, there are three downsides to this. The
first is that, again, both Sanctuary Guard bosses aren't
easy to get a hold of, especially Sanctuary Guard
Dragon, which, again, came from the Mega Trial Deck.
The second is that, pure Jewel Knights are much cheaper
to build if you have four Swordmys already (which I got
right away, so, suck it everyone else!). Third,
Salome + Sabermy swings in for 20K/2 Crit when your
opponent is at grade 2 and you can finish them off with
Yvain in Legion, and if that's not an option, use Ashlei
R for better field control.
And, yes, I've changed my tune on Yvain, it's a lot
better than I thought it was, but it only works in pure
Wow, I went off on a bit of a tangent there, but I had
to get this aired out.
On the other hand, this doesn't require any sort of
sub-clan, so if you have the Sanctuary Guard deck, try
it out, could be interesting.
This would be much better if it worked with either
Sanctuary of Light or Sanctuary Guard Royal Paladins.
