#CFV - BT11 Celestial Overview

After Bushiroad decided to release Booster Set 11: Seal Dragons Unleashed before Booster Set 10: Triumphant Return of the King of Knights, I was both sad and hyped at the same time. Sad because it meant that Royal Paladins wouldn't get their new archetype support until holidays, but happy because it also meant that the most over-hyped clans among English players right now would see the light of day a little later during the year in our meta. Diversity has always been a big concern for me, so prolonging the Liberator and Eradicator bandwagon a couple months back is not something I'm going to complain about. The other reason why I was happy about that switch in dates was because I knew this set featured Angel Feather support for it's brand new archetype, so knowing I'd be getting it a couple of months earlier made me pretty excited for it!

Angel Feather's new archetype is called ''Celestial'' and they focus on getting specific cards into the damage zone so that they can get certain effects off when they're on the field - most of them being gaining additional power when attacking. For now, compared to other Angel Feather builds, Celestials are pretty straightforward in term of strategy as they're really only about beating the opponent down with big numbers instead of using their damage zone as a toolbox and making multiple plays from that.
