No, we aren't using this week for promos, despite what this may tell you. We ARE reviewing G Booster 1 stuff as well. Starting us off is basically the replacement for Sybill in Jewel Knights, Swordmy. When placed on RG circle, you Counterblast a Jewel Knight to summon a Grade 1 or less Jewel Knight from the deck.
 
Simple enough, and certainly, thanks to the amount of support they have, one of the easier decks to set up for stuff needing a lot of rear guards. Having said that, however, a consistent field as I've said before isn't really going to cut it alone unless the Vanguard has some sort of party trick as well.
 
It does, thankfully. That's tomorrow. For now however, he's pretty good as a stand-alone card despite being restricted to his group of Jewel Knight friends.

Hey, everyone, we're starting our look at G-BT-01 this week and first up is one of the box toppers for G-BT-01, Swordmy.
 
Apparently, in the past, his legion partner, Yvain, was being attacked and was going to perish had Swordmy not came and saved him.  Since then, the two have been great friends.
 
Aww, how cute.
 
Anyway, Swordmy is one of the cards that people have been looking forward to for a long time.  Why?  Well, if you especial counter-blast 1, you can superior call one Jewel Knight, grade 1 or lower from your deck to the field.
 
This...  Is really good.  Unless you're running Seekers, and I'm talking about Seeker Alfred and Light Saver Dragon here, you should be running Swordmy, doubly so if you're running Stride Royal Paladins, seeing as all that style is focused on Grade 2s from the deck.  To be frank, I didn't think it was too good of an idea, not running pure Jewel Knights, but then I found that Stride Royals aren't as flexible or as able to recover from their field getting nuked like other versions of Royal Paladins have in the past.
 
In case you're wondering how to run this card, turn all your triggers into Jewel Knight Triggers and run Shellie and Prizmy as your grade 1s.  You can also run the Jewel Knight Sentinels if you really feel like you want to max out on your chances to use Swordmy as well.
 
The short version of it is this, Swordmy is a staple for most Royal Paladin decks, just like how Blaster Blade Seeker is a staple for Seeker decks.
 
And, yes, people of the Pojo forums, I agree, hail our savior Swordmy!
