And Now For A Word From The Vanguard R&D Department!!
For Today’s Card, we’re introducing the following cards from the 12th Booster Pack “Dragon King’s Awakening”:
• The 《Shadow Paladin》 G Unit, the new 【Ritual】 ace card, “Dragstrider, Luard”.
• The Support Card, “Dragwizard, Semias”.
“Dragstrider, Luard” is a finisher card designed for 【Ritual】 Decks, a G Unit that combines Guard Restriction, Drive Increases and Critical Increases! Once you’ve achieved 【Ritual 7】 (i.e. there’s 7 or more Grade 1 cards in your Drop Zone), and this card attacks, you can retire 2 of your allies to activate its ability! That ability lets you choose and discard any number of cards from your hand, and for each card discarded, this card gains Power+3000! And if you discard 2 or more cards, this card gains Critical+1 and Drive+1, and your opponent cannot Call Grade 1 or higher cards to their Guardian Circle. If you discard 2 cards, you’ll have Luard gain 6000 Power, its attack will be more likely to hit due to a Guard Restriction, and it gains Critical/Drive, placing incredible pressue to on your opponent, making it quite powerful.
In order to achieve the activation condition of 【Ritual 7】, use Quintet Walls or the new G Guardian, “Dragwiser, Bronarch” in order to flood your Drop Zone with Grade 1 cards, allowing you to aim for an incredibly powerful finish!
And, “Dragwizard, Semias” is a Support Card with an ability to increase your Rear-guards by 2. When it enters the Rear-guard Circle once you’ve achieved Generation Break 1 and 【Ritual 3】, if you have a “Luard” Vanguard, you can pay 1 Counter Blast o look and then Call the top 2 cards of your Deck to separate Rear-guard Circles,, and then this card and the cards Called are retired at the End Phase. Of course it aids 【Ritual】, but the Units can also be used for a cost, which makes it quite good in tandem with the likes of “Supremacy Black Dragon, Aurageyser Dragon”! Also, unlike “Cursed Eye Raven”, the Units Called can attack, making even a single copy of this card good enough to make your 【Ritual】 Deck even stronger!
We’ll be introducing more cards from “Dragon King’s Awakening” in future “Today’s Cards”! Please enjoy!
