In defence this way Shadowblade can counter attacks from Zen token 0 Zen and Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond. In offence he can eliminate the threat of Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond or Zen token 0 Zen when they are in the second fast slot, e.g. Tsume token 0 Tsume (normal), NubNub token 0 Chief NubNub (slow), Kai Makani token 0 Kai Makani (1st fast), Black Diamond token 0 Black Diamond (2nd fast).
