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 《Nubatama》 G Guardian, “Jinx Stealth Fiend, Zashikihime” and the Heal Trigger “Smiling Fortune, Zashikihime” 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.
“Jinx Stealth Fiend, Zashikihime” is a Unit that puts your opponent in between a rock and a hard place. When it is placed on the field, your opponent can either discard a card from their hand, but if they don’t discard, “Jinx Stealth Fiend, Zashikihime” gains 20000 Shield. Essentially it can become a 35000 Guard, meaning it by itself can deflect any of your opponent’s powerful attacks. So when your opponent has little to no hand, you’ll be able to essentially raise the value of its Shield.
Continuing, we introduce “Smiling Fortune, Zashikihime” who can activate its ability when discarded from the hand for the Cost of Calling “Jinx Stealth Fiend, Zashikihime”! By discarding 1 Grade 1 or lower card from your hand, you can draw 1 card. By cycling through your hand, you can prepare for your next turn’s attack!
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!
