Card Of The Week (W/C: 3rd November): Seeker, Light Saver Dragon (LEGION)

Seeker, Light Saver Dragon
[ACT](VC)Legion 20000 "Seeker, Light Blaze Dragon" (If your opponent's vanguard is grade 3 or greater, this unit may return four cards from your drop zone into your deck once, search your deck for the specified card, and Legion)
[ACT](VC):[Counter Blast (2)-card with "Seeker" in its card name] If this unit is Legion, choose up to three of your units, and those units get [Power]+5000 until end of turn. This ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn.
[AUTO](VC):[Choose a card from your hand, and discard it] When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one card with "Seeker" in its card name, call it to (RC), and shuffle your deck.

Seeker, Light Blaze Dragon
[AUTO] (RC):When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, if you have a vanguard with "Seeker" in its card name, choose one of your other units, and that unit gets [Power]+5000 until end of turn.

There's no denying that this is another Soul Saver Dragon, type gambit, something that this has in common with a card I use in current actual Royal Paladin deck, that card being Sanctuary of Light, Brightness Dragon. So, why have I chosen this as my Card of the week? Quite simply because it takes a play style I already use but adds additional pressure play, dropping a card from your to superior call a unit from the deck, may be a +/-0 but depending on what you call you can also make it into a +1 or +2, but that's not all there is to it, this is a legion in which the Mate can be used to provide as much pressure as the main Vangaurd and additionally it does so in such a way that it complements and combos well with the Vanguard skill.

Also... "Saver" and "Light" I can't help but feel that Bushiroad were targeting SoL and SSD players with this card. Well it's working because it caught my interest.

While there is no denying the dominance and results of Seeker, Sing Saver Dragon in the Japanese meta, something that will occur just as equally in the English meta, when it comes to building Seekers this is the gambit I'd want to focus on. But then again, I don't want to necessarily win, unlike meta-sheep & meta-heads/pros, what I look for in a deck is a deck that will give me good matches in casual and locals play, if I'm going big there's only one clan I'm equipping for the event, and fortunately for me, we'll be getting an extra booster in time for the next pro season (team league)
