The 10th Anniversary Begins
10th Anniversary Goods Set for 3 people in Japan via Twitter Contest
New IP Information!
Let’s enter a new era of the Planet Cray.
The Planet Cray, 3000 Years in the future, has entered the 天輪聖紀(*) Tenrin Seiki era
* The Holy Era of the Heavenly Cycle (Localized as Chakravarti Divine Era)
The world has shifted to 6 Nations (the sixth unannounced)
- Keter Sanctuary
- Dragon Empire
- Dark States (Dark Zones)
- Stoicheia (Zoo & Magallencia)
- Brandt Gate
Key Points of the Era of Planet Cray 3000 Years into the Future
The priestess’s prayers are answered, the divine “Chakravarti Divine Dragon” hatches from the egg, and the “Chakravarti Divine Era” begins.
① The deity “Gyze” disappears and the deity “Messiah” goes to sleep.
② The “Deity-less Era” (Mushin) arrives, an era without prayer.
③ Planet Cray loses its divine protection and becomes desolate.
④ The new nation of Brandt Gate prepares for the return of the Void.
⑤ The new nation of Keter Sanctuary is ruled by a floating island in the sky.
⑥ Zoo and Magallanica establish Stoicheia under the teachings of the Sage.
⑦ The Dark States are founded by a hero who has ended the nation’s internal strife.
⑧ The legendary dragon egg lies in the unchanging land of Dragon Empire.
The key of the new story is “Tenrin Sei Ryuu” (Chakravarti Divine Dragon)
The clans of United Sanctuary: Royal Paladin, Shadow Paladin, Gold Paladin, Genesis, Oracle Think Tank, and Angel Feather have become “Keter Sanctuary”
Dragon Empire’s clans of Kagero, Narukami, Murakumo, Nubatama, and Tachikaze have consolidated under “Dragon Empire”
Star Gate’s clans of Dimension Police, Nova Grappler and Link Joker have become “Brandt Gate”.
Dark Zone’s “Dark Irregulars”, “Pale Moon”, “Spike Brothers” and “Gear Chronicle” have been united under the banner of “Dark States”
Zoo’s Megacolony, Neo Nectar and Great Nature and Magallanica’s Aqua Force and Granblue have united into a new nation, Stoicheia.
Bermuda Triangle’s country has become a new Nation, currently unrevealed.
• Formerly known as the United Sanctuary, it is the youngest nation on Planet Clay.
• Once a sacred kingdom of heroes who valued justice and order, the country has shrunk in size as a result of repeated civil wars and natural disasters.
• It is divided into two parts: the island floating in the sky where the ruling class lives, and the ground where the people live while looking up at it.
• It is the only country that has not changed its name over the past 3000 years.
• The borders of the country are constantly changing, but the country remains stable and prosperous thanks to its powerful armed forces, pillars of which are destructive weapons that combine magic and science.
• On the sacred peak that rises in the center of Dragon Empire is the Gyoukouin, which has been guarding the legendary dragon egg since time immemorable.
• In the old days, it was called Star Gate, and it flourished as an interstellar window (Star Gate) for visitors to Planet Cray from various dimensions. Even in this new era, its high level of science has helped it maintain a high level of culture and national power.
• In preparation for the return of the Void, the people of Brandt Gate continue to fight on the borders of the world, using their scientific power to counter the threats from other worlds.
• A country that used to be called the Dark Zone. A magical nation of everlasting darkness ruled by the demonic family.
• It was divided into smaller kingdoms ruled by demon kings, but was reunited by a hero and Gear Chronicle.
• Thanks to the “law” brought about by Gear Chronicle and the cooperative relationship with Dragon Empire, the Dark States is now in a period of prosperity.
• Zoo, the oldest nation on Planet Cray, and Magallanica, home to sea creatures and an army of immortals, have become one nation under the teachings of the great sage Stoicheia.
• As seen in Stoicheia, the Old Zoo is a land where the world’s greatest minds gather, in a rich natural environment represented by the Sacred Tree. The wealth of resources and the unity of the people have led to the rapid growth of Stoicheia’s national power in recent years.

Let’s head to the Cray of a 3000 Years in the future and the new stage of Cardfight–
Everything has changed!
NEW CARD GAME RULES
The game switches from Clans to Nations
Marks that change in the new series:
- Clan Marks becomes Nation Marks
- V Icons are now D Icons
Under the new rules you choose one Nation from the cards with a D Icon to make a Deck.
There will now be 3 Formats for Events and Tournaments starting April 1st, 2021
Standard: D Icon Cards, New Cards will come from New Booster Packs at al (Each Pack has new cards for every Nation, multiple packs every years, also PR Cards)
V Standard (V Premium): V Icon Cards, New Cards will be provided by V Collection Extra Boosters released twice per Year covering all 24 Clans + PR Cards
Premium Standard (Premium): All Cards Legal, all current and old cards can be used
What does this mean to upcoming decks?
Under the clan system:
Policy of “strengthening all 24 clans at least once a year”.
→ Individual clans had to wait a long time in between buffs.
→ Players had fewer opportunities to add new cards to their deck.
Under the nation system:
All 5 Great Nations can be included in each booster, meaning every nation has a chance to be buffed.
→ Many more opportunities for players to improve their decks!
Rarities have been revised, removing the VR rarity, making the highest core rarity “RRR”
- New Rarities will be H (Holographic), which is R and C cards with partial holographic finish and foiling
- DSR (Dress Secret Rare), a super ultra valuable card per Booster Pack (as in the Set. Think ASR or Yu-Gi-Oh!’s old Ghost Rare rarity)
New Card Types for the New Series: The “Guaranteed Ride” system, which guarantees Rides to your favorite Unit!
(1) Set 4 cards from your Deck aside to form a “Ride Deck”
(2) Discard 1 card from your hand
(3) Ride your card from your Ride Deck to the Next Grade!
More details come in today’s Weekly Vanguard News Bits!
The ultimate Trigger Card “Over Trigger” appears, limited to 1 copy per Deck!
When you flip it for a Damage Check:
- 100,000,000 Power & Resist the source of Damage!
When you flip it for a Drive Check:

These cards are designed to reflect the characteristics of each of the Six Nations!
