Cardfight!! Vanguard – Cards I’m Hyped to See – Soul Strike Against the Supreme


What is up everybody? SimplyJeff is back and today I am boarding the hype train for Soul Strike Against the Supreme, which will be released to the English players October 2nd. Some great clans get support in this box and some not-so-great clans (I’m looking at you, Angel Feather) get the boost they need to be viable in today’s scene. Today I’m just gonna mention a few cards I’m really got me hyped, and I’d like to discuss them with you all. And, away we go!

Holy Seraph, Raphael

So, I’m going to the get this out of the way, Angel Feather is getting a nice kick in the butt in this box. As such, I’m very glad to say I’m excited for the new Angel Feather support. Along with all the G-era staples, they also get Holy Seraph, Raphael. To put it lightly, Raphael is a godsend. At GB2, persona flip 1, heal a damage. Every Angel Feather will need this card, and this, combined with Gabriel’s AUTO skill gives them some solid defensive coverage so they can continue their damage shenanigans. It may be enough to convince me to join the nurses of United Sanctuary. I can honestly say I’m quite happy by that. I’ve wanted to like them for awhile, but I just couldn’t support them until now.

Intimidating Mutant, Darkface

Moving away from the realm of angels, we descend to the realm of evil crime bugs. Zoo clans are by far my favorite clans, and to see Megacolony support makes me all giddy inside. Intimidating Mutant, Darkface is pretty amazing and the main Megacolony unit I’m excited for. His GB2 skill is so funny; when your opponent calls a unit, if you soul blast 2, you just rest it. Like, hey Aqua Force, nice TIdal Assault. Too bad it’s nap time. His on-stride is pretty fun too. One thing that I am very relieved to see in regards to Megacolony is that the support is generic. You could throw this into a Machining deck with relative ease without too much hassle. However, if you’re new to Zoo, you can build a tier 2 deck without too much stress. Honestly, once Bushiroad reveals more cards, Megacolony could very possibly hit tier 1 status.

Maiden of Flower Screen

Now, onto the lovely flower maidens. In particular, Maiden of Flower Screen. I wasn’t able to get her when she was a promo, and my G-Neo deck was severely lacking for it. For those of you who don’t follow Neo Nectar, her ability is that 1/Turn, you can place a normal unit on your deck, and you change her name to a card on your field. Neo Nectar, especially G-Neo, get major bonuses from copies of cards on the field, and her ability allows you to abuse that very efficiently. Her synergy with Jingle Dragon and Asha is what really sets her apart from other G-Neo. Also, she get’s a valuable unit back in the deck so it can be called out at a later time. The fact that she is only a Rare means fellow Neo Nectar players will get the support we need, well except for a resist unit. But we can hope!

Dreaming Dragon

I’m shocked to find a trigger on this list, and a Common trigger at that. However, Dreaming Dragon definitely deserves a mention on this list. First of all, his art is absolutely stunning, the best art featured on this list without a doubt. Next, his ability is obnoxiously over-powered. I’m just going to copy and paste his ability here for you all to read.

[AUTO](RC) Generation Break 1 (This ability is active if you have one or more face up G units in total on your (VC) or G zone):[Put this unit on the top of your deck] At the end of your turn, you may pay the cost. If you do, return all cards from your drop zone to your deck, and shuffle your deck. Then, if the number of cards returned is ten or more, draw a card.

Yes, you read that right. The ENTIRE dropzone. There goes all of Genesis’s deck out risk, which is amazing. Add draw power on top of that, and you have quite the solid trigger.

Heat Elemental, Buwer

Finally, perhaps more shocking than a Common trigger, a Cray Elemental was the inspiration for this post all together. In particular, Heat Elemental, Buwer. First of all, the artwork is adorable. He’s a little happy sun. Secondly, Buwer significantly powers up Break Ride and Limit Break decks. If Buwer’s attack hits, retire it, search for an LB4 card, and add to your hand, and shuffle the deck. As a Nubatama player, a card that allows you to search for a Limit Break is amazing. Even outside Nubatama, I feel Break Rides have been slighted in public opinion. Personally, I believe Stride was a huge benefit to Break Rides, but I’ll write more on that later. Buwer helps decks acquire stride fodder and allows for easy multiple Break Rides.

And with that final addition, the cards I’m hyped for are officially concluded. So I wanna know, what cards are you all hyped to see?

Well that’s it for this post. Once again feel free to contact me on reddit here or leave a reply on this thread for suggestions on what I should do next. I’ll try to get my posts out in a timely fashion, but do ask for understanding if I don’t. SimplyJeff, signing off.
