Luminous Light King of Knights, Alfred Oath
 
It's not worth getting started on Trinity Dragon's shit until the boss gets back from his 5-day session of whacking balls across a deforested area, so only two cards this week. Alfred Oath being one, gaining 2k for every one of your rear-guards on GB2, like the original Alfred. And when ridden, and you have a Blaster or Swordsman of Light in the soul, Counterblast and Soulblast 1 each and discard 1 card to call 2 Swordsmen of Light or Blasters from the deck.
 
Currently? Not worth jack. The Swordsman of Light archetype is too grossly under supported to use over Altmile. There may be some merit to the new Legend Deck hitting stores in a few months, but for now he's not worth it. Blasters wouldn't use him when Sanctuary Guard can use the multi-attack engine better than he can, and has Regalie to boot, and Swordsman of Light sucks. Old Altmile can spread around 5k for the front row for the same price, and that usually turns out better given it's not centralised to one column that will just get G-Guarded or Perfect Guarded.
 
Funny how this old deck continues to be just not viable huh?

Alright, so Alfred Oath's GB2 skill is his original skill: 2k buff per each of your rearguards. This Alfred does not have the "you can't boost this unit" effect, so that's the trade-off for Alfred Oath's gainz being attached to Gen Break.

Like most retrained bosses, Alfred Oath's bottom skill is not restricted to Gen Break. If you build around the support from the Try3 booster, G Set 6, and Vanguard & Deletor, odds are you're gonna have the "Blaster" or "Swordsman of Light" card in soul to trigger his on-ride skill. Ditch a card to gain two units on the field. Simple enough, but in many cases simple=effective. This skill is worth the cost regardless of if you go first or second. You could even say Alfred would have a better time going first, as you can call a Blaster Blade if you have Flogal in hand for restand shenanigans, or set up some countercharge with Barcgal. Regardless, you'll just start beating your opponent over the head with units, which is why you play Royal Pals. My only gripe about Alfred Oath is that there's a good chunk of Alfred support you'd wanna call but can't, since not all of Alfred's support is a Swordsman of Light or a Blaster. Despite that gripe, the things you can call with Alfred Oath can still provide you good setup and aggression.

Even with a Legion leader, OG Alfred was clunky and dated. Now, you can run your Alfred-themed decks with a competent G3 to rely on, instead of trying to make the Legion work or resorting to using Seeker Alfred. The upcoming Legend Deck might not utilize Alfred Oath, but he ties all the support from G Set 6, Vanguard & Deletor, and Try3 together in a nice nostalgia package. Go forth and annoy people with your on-ride chants. I know how you Alfred/Blaster players work.

3/5
