Blazing Sword, Fides
 
We apologise for the inconvenience. Here's something with substance (did you know the boss wanted use to review Darkside Sword Master? Come on). Fides is the newest Royal G Unit. His ACT skill flips a card in the G Zone face-up and discards a card once a turn, then you call a Grade 2 from the deck. If it has Brave, you draw a card. Then Fides gains a GB3 Brave skill: on-attack, if you have a Fides face-up in the G Zone, you retire one of the opponent's rear-guards and then two of your units gain 5k until end of turn.
 
So as long as you call something with Brave, usually something like Escort Eagle then you're gaining GB2 early and a +1 wash, because when are you going to +0 wash unless for whatever goddamn reason Brave still isn't live? His GB3 is where it's most interesting. As far as second Strides go, this over something like Transcending Altmile...yeah, you can tell this isn't supposed to be as good. As much as blowing up a problem card is good, it's a bit too late in the game: it's had all this time to bollock you, not to mention using Transcending to get another attack in, calling over a RG is worth more than a straight +1 to you, even if both skills are free.
 
Nonetheless, given that Aerial Altmile is almost always going to come first and you're going to run 3-4 of it anyway, finding room for 2 of this isn't hard and it's options I guess.
 
3/5
