This is my second card review.Sorry if i make any mistakes.This is one of my favorite cards.The moment i saw it i knew that it was needed in my deck.As you know,he is a grade 3 Gold Paladin unit.To me,he is an awesome card.I hope you guys like him too.
He has 3 skills.Among that 2 are useful against your opponent.Let me explain them.
1.His first skill is a limit break that can be used if you have four or damage.His skill gives your Gold Paladin vanguard +10000 power when ridden over him.His skill can give +5000 power to 3 of your rearguards too.Isn't that awesome.It lets you attack with a very high power.
2.His 2nd skill is that he gets +2000 power when he attacks a vanguard.This skill lets your attack hit even cards like The Blood and The End who may be at 13000 power.
Strategies and game play:
The key is to use him when your opponent is at 4 or 5 damage.So you can finish him off easily.You can ride any other grade 3 Gold Paladin on him.Or if you think you can defend against your opponent one more turn, you can ride Gancelot again to reduce your opponent's hand and then ride any other card over it next turn.
Combos with other cards:
In Ezel decks
With Blazing Lion
I prefer to use him with Blazing Lion,Platina Ezel. And use his skill to give 5k to all your rearguards.So you can finish off your opponent.With them combined you can attack thrice with about above 20000 power if you have five rearguards. You can get your vanguard to above 40k and even reach 50k with the help of triggers.
With Incandescent Lion
You can also use him with Incandescent Lion,Blond Ezel and get Ezel upto 25000 without a boost if you have all 5 rearguards.You can also use Ezel's skill to call 1 or 2 rearguards and boost his power.
You can use cards like Sleygal Dagger,Knight of Passion,Bagdemagus,Little Battler,Tron in these decks.
In Garmore decks
Gancelot works well with Great Silver Wolf,Garmore too.He can get Garmore upto 25000 power withou a boost and if you have Chargegal to support him, he can reach 41000 power too.
The best part about him is that you can use his skill to call one rearguard and give power to that too.You can also use his skill to call cards like Lop Ear Shooter who can call Rearguards again and give them power.So this can improve your field very much.
Ways to counteract it:
Well the easiest way would be to use a perfect guard.But you can also choose to put your opponent at 3 damage.But it is hard to finish off an opponent who is at 3 damage if he has good cards to guard with.You could also try to destroy his rearguards to minimize the number of cards getting +5000 power.
*His skill gives +10000 power to your vanguard
*Gives +5000 power to 3 of your rearguards
*Prepares for final turn to finish off your opponent
*Can only use its skill if you are at 4 damage
*Can only give power to rgs that are on your rg circle when you do the break ride.
