Hi everyone i'm back with another review i hope this review will be a good review...So lets started.

General Description:

So this time i choose a Armored Dragon/Samurai Named "Bolbalzak "Sword Flash" Dragon"i call him later (BSFD)
At the arrival of the
Battle Galaxy



Which was released at june 2008 in which we got BSFD a Samurai Dragon which has a cool effect
Samurai Generation (When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may generate a cross gear from your hand without paying its cost)
Each turn, you may untap this creature the first time it is tapped.
Double Breaker
Thats why i like see this effect ^ Untap this creature when first time its tapped and he also has Samurai Generation Ability which we talk about later.

Uses:
This card has many uses but i told you how i used it. Its help me in every dangerous situations like i have no shields and no creatures in battle zone so i put him in battle zone and generate some Cross Gears like dragon Gear - Sword Flash Legend to give him Speed attacker and it is a double breaker and also have untap ability thats mean it can break 4 of your opponent's sheilds and destroy his creatures twice. And you should use him in cross gears deck it would help you in dangerous situations as he always help me...And if your lucky enough you will win the game.

Strategies and game play:
So lets talk about strategies this card has many different strategies i told you some i know.If you are a dragon lover then you would use him in dragons deck as everyone use Genji XX he is also a samurai .I like to play a fight back duels in which i have no shields no creatures then i found this card BSFD which is inspired me to much i'm now using it in every dragon deck because it is a cool dragon.This creature has Awesome effect as i told before It has Samurai Generation thats mean you can generate a cross gear of any cost any civilization the best combos with Cross Gears with this creatures are given below in Combo Section...

Combos with other cards:
This creatures has lots of combos in my eyes Lets Start it..
Combos with cards :

BSFD + Blue Divine "SFD" if they are together your opponent must struggle because they both have Untap Abilty.


BSFD+Invincible Suit Cross Gear it gives BSFD can't be blocked and gives +1000.


BSFD+Dragon Gear -Sword Flash Dragon it gives BSFD speed attacker and gives +3000 power and its provide the ability the abiilty to break an addiontional sheild and it can cross with BSFD for free.


BSFD+Force Again+Force Again it gives you to generate more more and more Cross gears in battle zone from your hand.


BSFD+Genji XX to destroy blocker and help BSFD to attack easily.


BSFD+Nebula Wing- Holy Gear to cross any cross gear with BSFD for free because it has many combos wit cross gears.


BSFD+Balga Raiser Meteor the Dragonic Meteor if your lucky enough you can put him in batle zone..


BSFD+Bullet "Shirou" Barret it help to take a cross gear from deck and it also gives BSFD speed attacker.


BSFD+Bajula's Soul its provide break an addiontional sheild give +2000 and if BSFD attacks choose two cards in your opponent's mana zone and put them into his graveyard.


BSFD+Dragon Flare Egg if you are lucky enough you can put him in battle zone for free.


BSFD+Acterion Force its provide ability to give him a triple breaker and give him +9000


BSFD+Balzark,Sword Flash Fortress it is not good because BSFD has already Twice attacke ability.


BSFD+Bolbalzak X these brother can kill your opponent easily and help you to break your opponent's shields as fast as possible...


BSFD+Eternal Meteor Kaiser by help of this your opponent's creatures put into battle zone tapped that means your opponent's blocker are useless.


BSFD+Boiling Blade to destroy your opponent's blocker.


BSFD+Boleas Bird of Fire to destroy your opponent's blocker.


BSFD+Memories of the Palnetary Dragon to give him shield trigger.


BSFD+Crest of Mother to put him in battle zone From mana zone.


I think Cocco Lupia and mach lupia are not good so i not add them..
I think these combos are enough..

Ways to counteract it:
Players can easily protect them slf against BSFD By uses of Spells, creatures etc..I can give you some examples...

I know the DNA,Super Spark,Holw Awe are not useful because BSFD can untap but if your opponent has blocker then it is problem.

Terror Pit
Spiral Gate
Super Spark
DNA Spark
Holw Awe
Deadly Love
Auqa Surfer
Hades Death Gate
Dorballom Lord of Demons
Ballom Emperor Lord of Demons
Ballcadieas
Silver Shovel
Natural Snare
Hide and Seek
Kuukai Finder,of Karma
Syrius Firmament Elemental
King Alcadeias Holy Gaia
Milzam Spirit of Miracles
etc...

Strengths/Pros:
This card has lots of advantages like it has Double Breaker, Samurai generation,and untap ability so it has lots of advantages thats for sure and can finish your opponent quickly.And its provide combos with every civilization so youcan put him in any civilization dragon deck

Weaknesses/Cons:
There are some disadvantages of BSFD are as well like it has no defense by himself so it can be easily destroyed it has 7 cost which is hard to summon..But there are not so many disadvantages of this card

Variations:
This card is printed in Japenese and has no promos but it has different artworks from (Battle Galaxy,DMC-56,DMC-47-8,DMNC-67)





Artwork and aesthetics:
I like its effect and also like its artwork of DMC-56.In DMC-56 artwork A Dragon holding 2 fire Sword And wear fire armor

Overall rating:
I'm giving it a 9/10 yes 9 because it is a really good cards with too many combos but -1 because it has some weakness..

Hope you like it..

So much pictures and so little information. The essence of Sword Flash is that it untaps once when first tapped and that says enough. Give it Speed Attacker, and it will demolish many things. Also not mention blockers as a problem? 7000 power + 3000 from cross gear still can't get past strong Angel Command Blockers.

Comparing this to another review, this review lack depth. Pictures in a number that exceeds 20 can make the review rather odd because you don't enough words for it, or good enough points that can highlight it from the other reviews.

It seems that the long reviews with pictures in TCP would take a long time to put together due to organization. This has almost none, so what is the purpose of it having such a high score?
