Unit of The Week: Blaster Rapier (V Series)

An acute resolve allows you to pierce your enemies swiftly.

[AUTO](RC):When it attacks a vanguard, if you have three or more units with “Blaster” in their card names, this unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of that battle.
[AUTO](RC):When its attack hits a vanguard, COST [Counter Blast (1)], your opponent chooses one of his or her rear-guards, and retires it.

Blaster Rapier is the first female Blaster under Shadow Paladins. She wears black armor like most Shadow Paladins, and her weapon of choice is a rapier. Her skills are not as good as Blaster Dark, but she is not to be taken lightly. She plays a key role in Blaster decks. Her skills are designed to pressure the opposing vanguard.

Blaster Rapier’s first skill increases her power by 5,000 if you have three or more units with Blaster in their names. This requirement is easily fulfilled as long as you play many Blasters in your deck. Blaster Rapier is also able to hit almost every unit without needing a booster. I recommend attacking with her first if you are not going to boost her. A single trigger can increase your opponent’s defenses and prevent Blaster Rapier from hitting his or her vanguard.

In addition to Blaster Rapier’s first skill, Blaster Rapier’s second skill retires an opponent’s rear-guard if she hits a vanguard. Blaster Rapider’s first skill makes it easier to hit your opponent’s vanguard. This skill adds more pressure to your opponent. I find this skill very useful against Aqua Force and Nova Grappler. Both clans desperately need to retain their rear-guards, and players will most likely block Blaster Rapier’s attack.

Furthermore, Blaster Rapier’s second skill complements Blaster Dark and Blaster Dagger. These Blasters do not show mercy. You can easily retire up to three of your opponent’s rear-guards in a single turn. If you boost Blaster Rapier with Blaster Dagger, then their connection greatly pressures your opponent. The Blaster duo retires two rear-guards after a successful attack on the opposing vanguard.

Overall, Blaster Rapier is a great card for Blaster decks. Her skills can shift the momentum of a game in your favor. She packs a punch with her first skill. Then, her second skill retires opposing rear-guards. She complements Blaster Dark and Blaster Dagger. I recommend playing a full set in Blaster decks.
