Caard of the Day 28th June, 2012

Today's Card is Battle Sister, Omelette

    This unit is a grade 1 Oracle Think Tank unit. She has a base power of 7000 and shield of 5000. This card will be in the Cardfight Pack Vol. 6 which are given to participants for shop tournaments during July to September. The pack is also included with the TV Anime Cardfight!! Vanguard Character Song Album.

AUTO【R】: When this unit attacks, if you have an 《Oracle Think Tank》 vanguard and have no cards in your soul, this unit gets Power +3000 until end of battle.

    More soulless support for the Oracle Think Tanks. This card has a pretty decent base power and able to attack at 10k when you have no cards in your soul, so she can be a substitute attacking unit. This card can help get Silent Tom up to 15k and also get some of the Oracle Think Tank units hit to 20 or 21k.

Lore: She is a member of the Battle Sisters who works as an agent for the battle order. She calls Glaze "Onee-sama" with an affectionate tone. She has a unique fashion sense and wears the combat outfit provided by the order that she remodeled on her own accord. Like Glaze, her fighting style is focuses on offense but, Omelette fights with more brute force. Her attacks can turn stone walls into rubble, instilling fear to her opponent of a direct hit from her. She will destroy anything in her beloved "Onee-sama's" path. Her roaring fist heralds of her presence.

Card of the Day 27th June, 2012

Today's Card is Rumble Gun Dragon

    This card is a grade 3 Narukami unit. It has a base power of 10000 and no shield value. This card is a promo which will be released in the Vanguard Pack Vol. 6.

AUTO【V】: When this unit's drive check reveals a grade 3 《Narukami》, choose an opponent's grade 1 or less rear-guard, and retire it.

    A Dragon Monk, Goku copy for the Narukami clan. This card is actually not bad but pales in comparison to other Narukami main grade 3 units. The fact that it is a promo card makes it less worth using compared to Dragon Monk, Goku.

Lore: This Narukami thunder dragon appears along with an explosive roar. Since ancient times, it is known as an expert warrior of the Narukami. Although it has a low commander rank as a veteran, it was the one who requested that he stay on that rank and postponed his own promotion. When he flies on the battlefield, the opponents realizes how small they actually are and loses the will to fight. The roaring sound of his shooting and bombing attacks has made him to be recognized as the "strong" among warriors.

Card of the Day 26 June, 2012

I missed out on a day =(. Here's a patch up for yesterday.

Today's Card is Dark Lord of Pale Moon

    This card is a grade 3 Pale Moon unit. It has a base power of 10000 and no shield value. This card is a promo card which comes with the KeroKero Ace magazine on August.

AUTO【V/R】: When a 《Pale Moon》 boosts this unit, this unit gets Power +2000.

    A nice grade 3 beat stick which are now possibly in every other clan. This unit can hit up to 21k with boost from Turquoise Beast Tamer when you have Crimson Beast Tamer in your soul. It can apply a pretty good pressure and can be easily pulled out from the soul with Pale Moon units.

Lore: Known as the Dark King, he formerly led all of the Pale Moon forces and tried to conquer the Dark Zone. His plans ended in failure and he is now treated as a first class criminal, imprisoned in the Demonic Prison with a strong seal. He was the first king for the Pale Moon. A long time have passed, his name was forgotten and only stories of his legend stayed. In the legends he was called, Madness King, "Dark Lord of Pale Moon".

Card of the Day 22nd June, 2012

Today's Card is The Dark Dictator

    The Dark Dictator is a grade 3 Shadow Paladin unit. It is a Shadow Paladin unit and has a base power of 10000. The Dark Dictator is a promo card that comes with 4th Volume of the Cardfight!! Vanguard comic book or, manga. The comic book is scheduled to be released on the 26th June 2012.

CONT【V】: Your units cannot boost this unit.
CONT【V】: During your turn, for each of your 《Shadow Paladin》 rear-guard, this unit gets Power +2000.
AUTO: [Soul Blast(3)] When this unit is placed on the vanguard circle, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to 2 of your front row 《Shadow Paladin》 rear-guard units, and the chosen units get Power +5000 until end of turn.

    The long awaited The Dark Dictator! It is the Shadow Paladin copy of Alfred. This card is a manga exclusive card which has earned himself some fame due to it's "overpowered" ability in the manga. This card has the same first 2 ability that Alfred has, not being able to be boosted and gaining 2000 power for each rear-guard of the specific clan. In my opinion, this contradicts with Shadow Paladin's proposed mechanic of sacrificing your own units for power. The next is part is his ability when placed on the vanguard circle, this ability is very useful for a final attack and can be used with Triple Dark Armor or Gushion for even more power! This ability is good because it is a Soul Blast instead of Counter Blast meaning that you are free to use your damage. This card opens up more to Shadow Paladin in using other grade 3 as their main vanguard instead of Phantom Blaster Dragon or Phantom Blaster Overlord. I hope this card will be released for the English community when the Shadow Paladins arrive.

    Lore: He is the King of Darkness, a masterpiece created by Phantom Blaster Dragon to assassinate the King of Knights, Alfred and take down the Royal Paladins. He is the symbol of the Shadow Paladins and is also the only person who has command over every member of the Shadow Paladins besides Phantom Blaster Overlord. He excels in sword play and is very wise. Rivaling the King of Knights, he is known to be an unparalleled fighter. Emotions are rarely seen from his empty eyes, and is said to only show immense hatred towards the person he was modeled after, the King of Knights. Looking pass a far horizon sanctuary, the King of Darkness said with an empty tone, "There can only be one king. I will strike him down, and become the champion".

Two Cards of the Day! 21st June, 2012

First Card: Army Penguin

    Army Penguin is a grade 0 Dimension Police unit. It is a trigger unit with the draw trigger symbol at the top right side of the card and has a base power of 5000 and 5000 shield. Army Penguin can be found in the booster set 4: Eclipse of Illusionary Shadows which was released in Japan on the 29th October, 2011. The set has yet to be announced for the English community.

    Lore: These penguin workeroids are mass produced for combat on snowy mountain and plains. They are only equipped with a simple light machine gun but, they can move in high speed and can function for long periods of time without any maintenance. Furthermore, because they are made with materials that have low thermal conductivity, they can function in areas with temperature range of ±50 degree Celsius. They are all assigned a number which are hidden behind the bulletproof scarf wrapped around their neck.

Second Card: Dragonic Lawkeeper

    Dragonic Lawkeeper is a grade 3 Kagero unit. It has the Limit Break ability with a base power of 10000. Dragonic Lawkeeper was released in the Extra Booster 3: Calvary of Black Steel on the 26th May, 2012 in Japan and is scheduled to be released internationally on the 7th July, 2012.

    Dragonic Lawkeeper is a unit with a very strong Limit Break ability. The ability binds all your opponent's rear-guards, leaving their field empty. This leads to the activation of it's second ability, it gets an extra 3000 power when attacking. Furthermore, if your opponent had 5 rear-guards, they can only choose up to four of their rear-guards which were bind by this card to return them to the field. This card works well with Lizard Soldier, Raopia, which can bring Lawkeeper to a total of 23000 power when attacking!

There are no lore for cards in the English website.

Card of the Day 20th June, 2012

Today's card is Poison Juggler

    Poison Juggler is a Pale Moon grade 0 unit. It is a Trigger Unit with the symbol for Critical Trigger at the top-right side of the card. I has a base power of 4000 and 10000 shield. It will be in the booster set 7: Rampage of the Beast King. Here is it's ability text:

ACT【R】: [Put this unit into your soul]  Choose up to 1 of your 《Pale Moon》, and that unit gets Power +3000 until end of turn.

    This will be the second critical trigger for the Pale Moon clan, this makes Pale Moon to have 2 different copies of each triggers except heal trigger. The ability for this card is great for the Pale Moon clan, with the ability to Call units from the soul, you would be able to use this card's ability by bringing it out when needed! Especially with the new card Girl Who Crossed The Gap, Silver Thorn Dragon Tamer, Luquier and also a promo card which will make an appearance in the booster set, Purple Trapezist you can easily bring this card out as long as it's in your soul!

    Lore: This clown goblin loves luxurious poisonous potions. Since birth, they have a special behavior of taking poison as a source of nutrients. Like other goblins they are good at juggling but, they perform with flasks filled with poison that can melt the flesh upon contact. To increase the variation of the poison effect for their audiences,  they have recently started to use the blood from their heart to make the potions.

Card of the Day, 19th June, 2012

Today's card is Emerald Witch, LaLa

    Emerald Witch, LaLa is a grade 1 Oracle Think Tank unit. It has a base power of 7000 and 5000 shield. This card will be in the booster set 7: Rampage of the Beast King. Translated ability text:

AUTO: [Choose a card from your hand, and discard it] When this unit is placed on the rear-guard circle, if you have an 《Oracle Think Tank》 vanguard and has no card in your soul, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.

    To state the truth, this card is a little disappointing for me. It's is of RRR rarity but the ability is very situational. The good thing about this card is it's base power of 7000, which can help bring 8k units to 15k to at least do something to 10k vanguards. A good way to using this card is with Sakuya and Luck Bird. You empty your soul with Luck Bird for a draw and draw again with this card. Sakuya can return this card to your hand each time you ride Sakuya so you can use her ability multiple times.

    Lore: She is the Witch of the Jasper who manipulates magic of the pure light. She owns the four pronged vajra "Kirameki" (lit. Glitter), which is able to release an incredible amount of magic power. During her training period, she trained with CoCo, because CoCo was transferred due to grade-skipping, LaLa helped her out in getting used to the place. Because of her graceful manners and calm personality, there was rumors about her being a noble, in the end it remained a mystery. The beautiful and stern green light, "Emerald Sparkler" mesmerizes the opponent with it's majestic appearance, it's also said that there are people who would get hit by the light on their own will.

Card of the Day 18th June, 2012

I will start updating card of the day from the official Cadfight!! Vanguard Japanese website with the card's ability and the extended lore text on the site. Note that the translations I make for the names or ability text might not be the same as the one which will be released for the English version.

The card today is School Hunter, Leo-pald

    Leo-pald is of the Great Nature clan. It is a grade 3 with a base 10000 power and has the Limit Break ability. This card will be out in the booster set 7: Rampage of the Beast King, which is scheduled to be released on the 7th July, 2012 and the English release by Autumn. Here is the translated effect text for Leo-pald. 

AUTO【V】 Limit Break 4 (This ability is active when you have 4 or more damage): [Counter Blast(1)] During your end phase, when your 《Great Nature》 rear-guard unit is placed on the drop zone, you may pay the cost. If you do, call that card to an open rear-guard circle. 
AUTO【V】: When this unit attacks a vanguard, choose one of your other 《Great Nature》 rear-guards, until end of turn, that unit may get Power +4000, if it does get Power +4000, at the start of the end phase of that turn, retire that unit.

    This card's ability works very well with  Great Nature decks since most of the time, you would need to retire a unit which has their power increased due to an ability of a card. The Limit Break can help you return a retired unit at the end of the turn with just the cost of 1 damage. His second ability can either increase the power of it's booster so that it will attack with more power or, increase another card's power to prepare for the next attack!

    Next would be the lore for the card. He is the leader for the "Discipline Committee Production Unit" in the University.  He is a youth with a great sense of justice, and spends most of his time outside class on Discipline Committee activities. The blades spiking out of his body is sharp and hard, it's like the embodiment of his unbreakable and unwavering will. The villains who infiltrates the university grounds will be taken down by this "Hunter" who has a burning heart of justice.
