[AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose a face down card named “Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver” from your G zone, and turn it face up] When this unit is placed on (VC), if you have a heart card with “Blaster” in its card name, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to three of your units, and they get [Power]+5000 until end of turn. Then, if the number of cards in your soul with “Blaster” in its card name is two or more, this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of turn.

Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver is the evolved form of Soul Savor Dragon. The original Soul Savor Dragon was one of the best cards in the game at the beginning of Cardfight!! Vanguard. It shares the same skill as its predecessor. The new design has gold armor to give a sign of high status to the card. This powerful dragon provides additional support to the legendary Blaster Blade.

Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver skill gives 5,000 power to three of your units, and it also gains [Critical]+1 if your soul has two or more Blasters. This skill strengthens your formation as the formation gains a total of 15,000 power. You can give the power to your rear-guards or vanguard as the skill states units. However, your Blasters need to be on the field when Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver is placed on the vanguard circle. You will need to call Blaster rear-guards on the prior turn.

Furthermore, Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver gets [Critical]+1 until the end of the turn, and this skill adds more pressure on your opponent. This situation forces your opponent to prioritize their defense to block the vanguard’s attack. Your Blaster rear-guards will have opportunities to strike the opposing vanguard hard.

Finally, achieving the [Critical]+1 is much easier today than it was in the past format. Blasters have many new units from Cardfight!! Vanguard V. You should be able to consistently have at least two units with Blaster in their names in your soul. I recommend playing a deck with only Blaster cards. This method guarantees the conditions are met for the skill.

Overall, Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver is an effective unit in Blaster decks. It is a good option if you are playing on a budget. All of your units benefit from the skill if you evenly distribute the power to each column. The second skill is more consistent because the archetype has more support from grade 1 units. The extra critical forces more pressure on your opponent. Unite with Blaster Blade and summon Holy Dragon, Religious Soul Saver to protect the United Sanctuary!
