Pot o' Gold

Spoilers run rampant as of late, but screw your Spectral Blaster Diablos and your G-ranblues for a moment (just a moment, I promise, I'll get to those soon enough!) and check out the deets on G-SD02: Knight of the Sun.

*52 card pre-constructed deck featuring Taiyou's Gold Paladins
*19 types of cards in the main deck, 14 new and 5 reprint (plus 2 copies of a new G Unit)
*Among the new cards are units with the "Unite" ability, as well as 2 perfect guards
*Among the reprints are Gurguit, Golboduc, and Flame of Victory with new art
*something about fewer RRR cards compared to TDs, but who cares
*Clan Card
*Fight Guide
*1 PR "Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon" included
*All for 500yen + Tax
*On sale April

Holy shit the value.

I've been looking forward to the expansion of this particular paladin flavor for awhile now, having appreciated the new design space Gurguit and friends explored. Done a lot of speculation in regards to how his "second-wave clones" would work. I suppose that's neither here nor there given the imminent shoehorning of buzzwords, but to see it all happen in such an affordable and convenient package is insane. The new precedent for reprints is mind-numbing too. Time Dergs, now Bling Knights... who could be next?!

Now to be fair, it wouldn't surprise me if the contents ended up entirely uninspired and less than competitive. Given how the tech booster went over, though? I think I'll maintain cautious optimism.
