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 《Murakumo》 G Guardian, “Ambush Demon Stealth Rogue, Shirahigano” and the Heal Trigger “Secret Stealth Rogue, Higano” 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.
[Orange] Flip 1 face-down G Guardian in the G Zone face-up!
[Yellow] Activate an effect at the time you discard a Heal Trigger from your hand!
When “Ambush Demon Stealth Rogue, Shirahigano” appears, you can activate its ability by Counter Blasting 1 card and flipping 1 G Guardian in your G Zone face-up! During that turn, when a Grade 3 or lower Guardian is Retired, you can place that card on the bottom of your Deck, and Shirahigano gains 10000 Shield. Keep in mind that it lasts for that turn, meaning it keeps happening even after you’ve Called and used “Shirahigano”. Since 《Murakumo》 is a Clan that specializes in Calling copies of the same card from your Deck, abilities that return cards back to your Deck are extremely strong. Keep in mind this allows you to even return Triggers! And since its Shield jumps up to 25000 or more, “Shirahigano” can feint most attacks.
Continuing with this, you can activate the ability of “Secret Stealth Rogue, Higano” when it’s discarded for the Cost of Calling “Ambush Demon Stealth Rogue, Shirahigano”! You choose 1 Normal Unit from your Drop Zone and place it on the bottom of the Deck! It allows you to secure the duplication ability of “Stealth Rogue of the Trial, Yasuie” ahead of time!
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!
