Black Seraph, Gavrail
 
All the hype for the upcoming G Booster 7 is around us, so why wait any longer? Starting us off this week with spoilers is Black Seraph, Gavrail. Her skill is an ACT GB2 skill, which costs Counterblast 1 and G Persona Blast, and then she gets 2 skills: every time a card enters the damage zone during the battle phase, 2 of your units gain 2k until end of turn, and after attacking, her Rescue skill kicks in, healing 2 damage, and then you take 2 damage back, activating any revealed triggers.
 
So basically, you're looking at her worst case scenario being an extra 4k twice over distributed as you see fit. Any triggers revealed during her Rescue are basically a bonus. Having said that, like Vanargandr for Genesis this is kind of hit-and-miss as it's still dependent on chance for maximum mileage, but at least she's got that column thing going on.
 
As for any potential to combine her with other Rescue skills for big columns: I wouldn't. Until Black Seraph appears to create Nova Grappler-esque shenanigans the deck is pretty vanilla and bland up until that point and lacks the punch that can be spread out over several turns.
 
Even so, G Angel Feather finally got an independent finisher rather than a Pegasus/Broken Heart setup unit, so that's pretty neat.
 
3/5

[Black Seraph, Gavrail]

And now, this week it's time for the meat of G Booster Set 7! Gavrial has great utility. She'll pump your ponies and Broken Hearts (or Frontal Celestial, Mel'ejal) after she swings. She'll bestow the pony/Broken Heart power increase ability to any unit, though those pumps only happen during the battle phase (sorry Refros). Gavrial Rescuing two cards will get you a whole new column if you heal a Laser Clutcher, Ke'el and Drill Motor Nurse. And let's not forget actually hitting triggers off of Gavrial damaging herself. 

Rescuing a lot of cards might make you worry about decking out, but Angels have a lot of power plays to straight-up end the game these days. Go out there and sack some triggers, stack buffs, and refresh columns! Just be smart. If you've been getting the smack down from your opponent and need to go into Raphael to get rid of some damage, save your Gavrial play till you're out of the danger zone. What am I saying, is Gavrial these days in any sort of danger? 

4.5/5
