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 《Link Joker》 G Guardian, “Darkness That Lights Up The End, Lacus Carina” and the Heal Trigger “Light That Lights Up The End, Carina” 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 G Guardian appears that can use the specialty of 《Link Joker》, Lock, but during your opponent’s turn!! When “Darkness That Lights Up The End, Lacus Carina” is placed on the field, you can pay 1 Counter Blast, you can Lock up to 3 of your ally Rear-guards, and then your opponent chooses an equal number of their Back Row Units, and Locks them. It’s possible to lock all of your opponent’s back row Units, allowing you to greatly deter your opponent’s attacks that turn. Also, if you use “Sacrifice Messiah”, you can increase the Power of your Vanguard during your opponent’s turm. Your own Locked Units can be unlocked by “Genesis Dragon, Amenesty Dragon” next turn, so use this card to set things up!
And on top of it, when “Light That Lights Up The End, Carina” is discarded from your hand for the Cost of Calling “Darkness That Lights Up The End, Lacus Carina”, you can activate its effect. If your Damage Zone has 1 or less face-up Cards, you can Soul Blast 1 to Counter Charge 1. 《Link Joker》 is a clan that uses many Counter Blasts, so it’s useful to have an ability that Counter Charges.
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!
