And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!

For Today’s Card, we’re introducing the following from “Fighter’s Collection 2017” (on sale May 12th, 2017): The Generation Break 1 《Kagero》 G Guardian, “Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Advance Guard Dragon” and the Heal Trigger “Positive Dracokid” that activates its ability when it’s discarded from the hand for the Cost of Calling the related G Guardian.

The G Guardians included in “Fighter’s Collection 2017” have the common components of Generation Break 1 and “Flip a face-down G Guardian face-up”. Compared to normal G Guardians, because these have a “Timing delay for when you can use them” and “Decrease the chances to use a G Guardian by flipping a G Guardian face-up as part of the cost”, they also are much stronger than typical G Guardians, and have incredibly high Defense. These are indeed special G Guardians!

And on top of it, the Heal Triggers in “Fighter’s Collection 2017”, available to all clans, have abilities that activate when they’re discarded from the hand for the Cost of Calling the G Guardian of their clan that’s included in “Fighter’s Collection 2017”! They have varying abilities depending on their clan, such as hand cycling or cost recovery.

A 《Kagero》 G Guardian that retires your opponent’s Unit!! When “Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Advance Guard Dragon” is placed on the field, you can Soul Blast 1 card, and in exchange, you get to Retire 1 of your opponent’s Grade 1 Resting Rear-guards. It’s a Retreat-type G Guardian for 《Kagero》, just like “Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin”, but while “Advance Guard Dragon” can’t retire an opponent’s attacking Unit, it does have the noteworthy point of not requiring a Counter Blast. Also, if it Retires a Unit that Boosts, it is possible to alter the game situation by suppressing your opponent’s Power by that much.

Continuing, “Positive Dracokid” activates its ability when it’s discarded to pay the cost of Calling “Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Advance Guard Dragon”. When your Damage Zone has 1 or less face-up cards, you can Soul Blast 1 in exchange for Counter Charge 1. So next turn you’ll be ready for the Stride Skill of “Dragonic Blademaster”.

For the foreseeable future, we’ll be continuing to introduce cards from the Legend Deck “The Blaster “Aichi Sendou”” and “Fighter’s Collection 2017”! Please enjoy!
