Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes returns to Cardfight!! Vanguard with two new skills. He also has a Force marker. These new skills give him more playability than his original version. I prefer his new artwork over his original art from the original Cardfight!! Vanguard. This artwork is full of life, and this is a common trend with units in Cardfight!! Vanguard V.
Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes’s first skill soul charges one card when he becomes the vanguard or a rear-guard. This skill is useful in decks with Soul Saver Dragon. Palamedes is preparing your winning image. He is an additional resource for charging cards into the soul. You want to soul charge early and often in games.
Play these cards with Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes!
- Soul Saver Dragon
Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes’s second skill is loaded with offensive firepower! He gains 5,000 power for each card put in your drop zone from your soul, and the skill stacks power. This skill has amazing synergy with Soul Saver Dragon. He gains a total of 40,000 power from both skills, and his total power becomes 53,000. Be sure to call him on the field when you play Soul Saver Dragon’s skill!
Finally, Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes serves as a good backup vanguard for a deck with Soul Saver Dragon. His skills can be used on the vanguard circle and rear-guard circle. He delivers the first Force marker on the field. Then, Soul Saver Dragon can deliver a second Force marker and its skill brings offensive momentum to the Royal Paladins! They make a great team, and provide a lot of consistency to a deck.
Overall, Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes is the answer for a backup vanguard for Soul Saver Dragon. He helps build the soul, and his second skill complements Soul Saver Dragon’s skill. He is the perfect guard to have on the field for your finisher. You may also ride him as a back guard vanguard. I recommend playing four copies of Swordsman of the Explosive Flames, Palamedes in your deck.
