"Shadow Paladin" (シャドウパラディン Shadō Paradin) is a clan from the nation of United Sanctuary, which has Imaginary Gift . The clan is themed around knights, dragons, wizards, and animals, among others, with a focus on sticking to the shadows and dark magicks. It is an irregular army within the holy nation, as there are hardly any records of the clan's existence.
As the dark counterpart of Royal Paladin, Shadow Paladin plays similarly, focusing on amassing a field of rear-guards by generating card advantage. However, unlike Royal Paladin, Shadow Paladin focuses on calling weaker units as fodder for their boss units' powerful abilities, which demand the player to retire several of their units as a cost. For that purpose, the clan often uses rear-guards that are low on Power but can be called quickly for low costs. At the same time that Shadow Paladin builds up their own field, they undermine the opponent's field, as they have several abilities that cause the opponent to retire their own rear-guards. Those retired units can be used as cost too if are bound from the bind zone.
The Dragwizard has an grade 1-centric strategy who is calling and having some grade 1 in the field, that get more power and skills, also the ace card with its superior ride skill, can give critical to those grade 1.
The Witches can manipulate the circles allowing multiples Vanguard circles and manipulate the drop zone to call weaker units in the opponent's side to destroy opponent's strategies.
Shadow Paladin has the Force Imaginary Gift, which can further increase the power of their units, and can compensate for the weaker offense of their fodder rear-guards or make more pressure with the powerful units..
