Jake the Cardmaster
The skill ATK Boost Synchro for Yusei is glitched. It does not become available for activation when summoning the new Noble Knight Synchro card, High Laundsallyn, even though it's a Synchro Warrior and it you should be able to activate the skill.

The option to activate does not pop up at all.

Hope Konami fixes it.
