Spectral Duke Dragon was one of the most popular cards from the era of Limit Break. It has a similar style to Phantom Blaster Dragon. Both cards are powerful dragons and they stand after battle for an additional attack. Spectral Duke Dragon gains new abilities from the sacrifices of his fellow Gold Paladins.

First Ability:

Spectral Duke Dragon gains 1,000 power and a critical if your opponent’s vanguard is grade 3 or great with Black Dragon Knight, Vortimer in your soul. Spectral Duke Dragon does not require a boost from a rear-guard to hit the opponent’s vanguard. I recommend a rear-guard to boost this card for its second battle.

Furthermore, Spectral Duke Dragon becomes a vanguard with 13,000 power at all times. The additional power also adds defense. You can easily block a few attacks with fewer cards than usual for Gold Paladins.

Second Ability:

Spectral Duke Dragon has the illustration and ability of a Shadow Paladin in a Gold Paladin. Spectral Duke Dragon stands after battle for the cost of one counter blast and retiring three rear-guards. You have two attacks from the vanguard. You have more opportunities to damage the opponent and check the deck for triggers.

Furthermore, the second ability resembles Limit Break from the original card. You gain an additional drive check if you have four or more damage instead of losing a drive check. This perk negates the cost of retiring three rear-guards. You break even with triple drive.
