How this works?

  • Old Vanguard Units are compared with their V-Series retrains of the SAME NAME.
  • Will be compared with the 1st iteration of the unit.
  • Series will be following the JP format’s release order.
  • Has 1 of 3 possible conclusions/verdicts:
    • (Good) Upgrade/Buff
    • (Bad) Downgrade/Nerf
    • (Neutral) Schrodinger’s Patch

Quick Notes


Patch Notes


Stardrive Dragon (Start Deck)

  • Base Power increased from 10000 to 13000.
  • Added new abilities:
    1. Imaginary Gift: Force (If you ride this unit, gain one Imaginary Gift: Force!).
    2. AUTO [VC/RC]: When this unit attacks a Vanguard, if you have 3 or more Rear Guards (RG), + 3000 Power for that battle.

Verdict: Schrodinger’s Patch

  • This would’ve been a Buff if Storm Element, Cycloned didn’t exist. OG vanilla beatstick + Psuedo “Stand Trigger” for Cycloned go brrrrrr.
  • V version okay as a teaching deck boss or How to Basic memes.

Knight Of Silence, Gallatin

  • Base Shield increased from 5000 to 10000.

Verdict: Buff

  • 10k shield is actually good for early V and Premium.
  • Default vanilla Grade 2 for Cycloned.dek.
  • Also, it’s Gallatin, that’s the joke. So how many reprints we gonna get this time? 🤔

Knight Squire, Allen (Start Deck)

  • Base Power increased from 7000 to 8000.
  • Base Shield increased from 5000 to 10000.
  • Removed abilities.
  • Removed flavor text.

Verdict: Buff

  • 8k Base Power & 10k Shield is great.
  • Default vanilla Grade 1 for Cycloned.dek.
  • <Insert Cycloned + SGD Regalie joke here>.
  • Not associated with Ellen Degenerate.
  • Is still more of a Knight than Future Knight, Liew.

Wingal (Start Deck)

  • Base Power increased from 6000 to 7000.
  • Base Shield increased from 5000 to 10000.
  • Updated abilities:
    1. Changed “When this unit boosts a Blaster Blade” to “When this unit boosts a Vanguard”.
    2. Power gained from boosting increased from 4000 to 5000.
  • Removed flavor text.

Verdict: Buff

  • Vanguard boost only, but no longer Blaster Blade’s biatch. (Just wait until the RP VRs :feelsbadman:)
  • One of the first V-Series card to be ‘Reprint’ Paladin-ed. Just wait for VBT-01.

Glyme

  • Added new abilities:
    1. When ridden on, draw 1 card.

Verdict: Buff

  • You actually have a reason to play this starter now.
  • OG version can be played for impractical, but funny Cycloned vanilla memes.
  • Probably has about as many reprints as V-Series Blaster Blade.

Bringer Of Good Luck, Epona

  • Base Shield increased from 10000 to 15000.
  • Trigger Power increased from 5000 to 10000.

Verdict: Buff

  • 15k Shield & 10k Power Trigger actually gives you a reason to play generic this over sub-clan vanilla triggers.
  • Actually looks like a…lady now?
  • Good luck still not guaranteed.

Flogal

  • Changed from a Stand Trigger into Critical Trigger.
  • Base Shield increased from 10000 to 15000.
  • Trigger Power increased from 5000 to 10000.
  • Removed flavor text.

Verdict: Buff

  • Like Epona, but no longer a vanilla Stand trigger.
  • High Beast support go brrrrr.
  • Is still a biatch.
  • …what? That’s the actual name for female dogs! D;

Margal

  • Base Power increased from 4000 to 5000.
  • Trigger Power increased from 5000 to 10000.
  • Removed abilities.
  • Removed flavor text.

Verdict: Nerf

  • OG version has niche send to soul gimmick for certain ‘plays’.
  • V version is only good for extra Trigger Power, and nothing else.
  • Premium at least has Cycloned.dek’s beatstick or High Beast.dek memes?
  • Is less of a pain to actually find now.

Yggdrasil Maiden, Elaine

  • Base Shield increased from 10000 to 20000.
  • Trigger Power increased from 5000 to 10000.
  • Removed flavor text.

Verdict: Buff

  • 20k Shield. That’s crazy yo. Arguably better/more consistent than most generic RP G-Guards that aren’t cockblocked by name restricted BS.
  • Like Epona, but as a Heal Trigger.
  • Still not associated with CEO Yggdrasil from Genesis.
  • Maybe?
