December 13th 2013 was the release date of the new English set VG-BT10 Triumphant Return of the King of Knights in North America. This set has already been released earlier this year February 16th in Japan so this means that we pretty much knew all the cards in the set.
In this set there are a total of 102 different cards including 3 reprints. The reprinted card is the perfect block for the Gold Paladin clan, Halo Shield Mark which has been renamed to Halo Liberator Mark. They also reprinted Eradicator Wyvern Guard, Gui ld which is the perfect block for Narukamis and Cheer Girl Marilyn, the perfect block for Spike Brothers. This set officially introduces the Genesis clan as well as support for the Gold Paladins, Royal Paladins, Nova Grapplers, Narukami and the long awaited Spike Brothers! And of course there are new Limit Break cards as well.
A very hyped card is Liberator of the Round Table, Alfred for the Gold Paladin clan. This card’s ability states:
|[CONT](VC) Limit Break 4 During your turn, this unit gets [Power]+2000 for each rear-guard you have with “Liberator” in its card name. [ACT](VC):[Counter Blast (2)-card with “Liberator” in its card name] Look at the top card of your deck, search for up to one «Gold Paladin», call it to an open (RC), and put the rest on the bottom of your deck.|
This card has 11k attack power. His second ability allows him to freely call rear-guards onto the battlefield. His first passive ability is really what makes him shine because he can easily go up to 21k and this is hitting high up in the magic numbers. With 1 or 2 triggers getting up to 26 and 31k is very difficult to deal with. This forces your opponent to drop a perfect block and will make him run scared when he has none in his hand. Obviously you would have to run a Gold Paladin deck revolving around the Liberator sub archetype
Another anticipated card is Beast Deity, Ethics Buster. His effect states
|[AUTO] Limit Break 4 a «Nova Grappler» rides this unit, choose your vanguard, and until end of turn, that unit gets [Power]+10000 and “[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, [Stand] all of your «Nova Grappler» rear-guards in the front row.”.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit is boosted by a «Nova Grappler», this unit gets [Power]+2000 until end of that battle.
When you make a vanguard ride him that vanguard gets a crazy amazing ability. It gets the ability to freely stand all of the front row read-guards and +10k power! This is truly devastating and can really end a match. Just the fact that you have this card in your hand can scare your opponent into thinking that the match can end at any given moment! The attack does not even have to hit for it to get its full effect. And like most Nova Grapplers, he has 11k attack so worst case scenario he can hit for 21k if boosted by a 8k Rear-Guard because of his second passive ability.
