Swordsman of Light, Ahmes. The old Blaster Blade. When
he attacks and you have an Alfred vanguard, he gains 2k.
Nothing we haven't seen before: Big Bang Slash Buster,
Regulation Aglovale etc. His unique skill activates when
he hits the Vanguard and the Vanguard's Alfred. You can
call a unit with Blaster Blade in his name from the deck
over Ahmes, and that unit's AUTO skill becomes free to
play until end of turn.
Essentially, it's looking to get a cheap retire for CB1
if he hits. So he provides pressure at the very least.
Only problem is that running a Blaster Blade is forced:
the cheapest one is Blaster Blade Seeker if the Alfred
you choose to run is Exiv. Or Blaster Blade Spirit.
Except Seeker requires the use of other Seeker units and
if that's the goal pure Seekers is a better option to
have, and Spirit is brittle. But at the very least
Spirit combines well with your 7k boosters so once again
Holy Squire can exist.
It doesn't do a whole lot for me, this card. Lacks
presence, but at least is has SOME pressure.

So, this is who Blaster Blade was before he was Blaster
Blade. See, the name is for the sword, not the
user. Ahmes here gave up his name to become
Blaster Blade when Junos became Blaster Dark.
It's an interesting piece of history, and, really, I was
curious to know more about Blaster Blade and Blaster
Dark, this kind of stuff, plus the image of Junos's back
to the Sword just really makes me want to know more
about the story.
Okay, enough of that, what do you bring to the table,
When this unit attacks, if you have an Alfred Vanguard,
it gets +2000 power, okay, that's cool. Basically
it's like some of the Legion Mates like the down hood
Percival, especially since it has a skill that works on
If you have an Alfred Vanguard, this hits an opposing
Vanguard, CB1 to superior call a Blaster Blade from the
deck and its skill is free when you use it.
...Oh, that's neat. Works good in Seekers or in
regular Alfred to get some advantage going. Namely
an extra attacker and a retired unit from your
Best part is, this isn't a GB1 skill, so you can use
this when your opponent is at Grade 2 and you're at
No complaints here.
