And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!
For Today’s Card, we’re introducing the following from the 10th Booster Pack “剣牙激闘” (on sale February 3rd, 2017): The 《Nova Grappler》 G Unit “Zenith Superstar, Moai the Supreme” and the 【Rush】 support, “Bear Knuckle, Ernest”.
“Zenith Superstar, Moai the Supreme”, when you Drive Check a Grade 3 Card, Stands 1 of your Rearguards with 5000 Power. It’s quite strong as it allows you to Stand again to perform a continuous attack, and when used in conjunction with 【Rush】 which gives you benefits when you Stand due to an effect, you’ll be able to pull off even more exciting moves. For example, it has great affinity, with “Extreme Battler, Buttagill” (included in the 剣牙激闘 6 Pack Campaign). By using the Stand ability of “Moai”, you’ll have it Stand and gain 5000 Power, while the 【Rush】 ability of “Buttagill” causes it to gain Power, and also you can retire an opponent’s front row Rear-guard. It’s quite a handy card to use.
And following up, “Bear Knuckle, Ernest”, like “Street Bouncer”, is a Support Unit with a draw ability when it’s placed on the field. By Soul Blasting 1 and Resting it and an ally Rear-guard, you get to draw 1 card. As well, by having “Ernest” Retire itself, you can immediately Stand 1 of your allies, such as the Unit you Rested for “Ernest”‘s ability. Combine it with Units with the 【Rush】 ability, you’ll be able to draw and activate a 【Rush】 ability, making it an ability that’s ideal for 【Rush】.
As well, “剣牙激闘” contains many cards that enhance 《Nova Grappler》’s 【Rush】, so be sure to enjoy.
