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 《Neo Nectar》 G Guardian, “Flower Princess of Cherry Blossom, Kosterina” and the Heal Trigger “Cherry & Blossom” 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.
When “Flower Princess of Cherry Blossom, Kosterina” is placed on the field, you can pay 1 Counter Blast to have her gain Shield+5000! And by Calling 1 Unit from your hand to a Rear-guard Circle, if there’s 2 or more cards with the same name as the Called Unit, Kosterina gains an additional 10000 Shield. It’s possible for it to become a 30000 Shield in total, meaning this card on its own can ward off an opponent’s powerful attack. It also works well in tandem with “Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha” and “Ideal Maiden, Thuria”, if you Call a Unit with the same name as your Vanguard “Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha”, “Kosterina” gains Shield+15000 and you’ll be able to recover the Counter Blast you used as a Cost. Also, if you combine it with cards like “Faith Maiden, Odette”, you can increase the Power of your Vanguard during the opponent’s turn, alllowing you to reinforce your defenses.
Continuing, we introduce “Cherry & Blossom” who can activate its ability when discarded from the hand for the Cost of Calling “Flower Princess of Cherry Blossom, Kosterina”! It lets you Choose 1 Normal Unit from your Drop Zone and place it on the bottom of your DKec. Since 《Neo Nectar》 has many cards the Call Units with the same name from the Deck, you can return cards in the Drop Zone back to the Deck to Call them next turn, letting you pull off your next move.
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!
