All of Aichi’s teammates become his rear-guards in battle. Messianic Lord Blaster gains power from every rear-guard, and this includes Kourin as Blaster Arrow.

First Skill

Blaster Arrow protects her fellow Blasters on the field. Her effect prevents the effects of your opponent’s cards from choosing or targeting your units. It is an effective ability to avoid effects from clans such as Kagero and Narukami. You can play a very aggressive strategy of calling many Blasters to the field without consequences. Your opponent cannot activate effects to target your units.

Second Skill

Blaster Arrow searches for Arch Saver Dragon if you have three or more Blasters on the field. This is a useful effect if you are playing Arch Saver Dragon. You have access to a new vanguard for your next turn. The skill also does not have a cost. You gain a free card without losing any resources!

Card Rating

Overall, Blaster Arrow is a good card for Blaster decks, and I expect her maintain her value in the deck. Her value comes from her first skill. Baster Arrow’s skill to protect other Blasters is a very useful skill. Decks in the standard and premium format will take full advantage of the protection. Blaster Arrow’s second effect is not a great ability due to decks have better vanguards than Arch Saver Dragon.
