I, like many other players no doubt, have often thought about all the potential new clans that could be added to Vanguard. And especially in more recent years (with Bushiroad not introducing a new clan since Gear Chronicle (ok, Touken Ranbu if you count them)) I've given the possibility much more thought.
In the last year or so I've come up with the concepts for 5 different clans, as well as designed some cards for them all. Naturally, some have fallen flat and simply not worked, others have worked but been boring/broken/underpowered, but one of my invented clans (funnily enough, my first one) worked surprisingly well in concept. So much so in fact that I have played numerous games with this invented clan and found it to be fun and powerful…Read more >
Normally I don't usually post personal stories on here, but after re-reading one of TyrantRex's old blogs, as well as my recent departure of real life Vanguard, I feel now I can say this more comfortably.
I'll start with the statement: "That one guy at locals...". For those who've read my old blog posts, I'm referring to Mushi. Out of respect, I won't out his real name. While small, a part of the reason why I retired from real life Vanguard was Mushi's attitude.
I first met Mushi when we found each other one day and started playing in our downtown mall. We were super casual back then, so we fought with plain old trial decks from the Limit Break era. Mushi played Gold/Royal Paladins while I just played whatever I had with me at…Read more >

EDIT: Accidentally wiped the contents by mistake.
I've hit a wall in Vanguard as of now. It's currently not as fun to play, the commute is long and I don't have time, and there's one person at my locals that just ruins the experience for me. I would go into more detail, but that might be a blogpost reserved for later.
I'll be retiring from real life Vanguard, maybe keeping one deck just to casually play now and again, until I can catch back up to speed.
I'll still be on CFA if anyone wants to play me, username is CR Ragnarok.Read more >
Once again, I took a break from Vanguard and put all of my focus on League of Legends, Shadowverse (which I actually started playing on the last week of May) and Hearthstone. And out of all of these games, I will always love Vanguard. It was one of the first card games in which I actually did well and didn't really suck at. I was pretty bad at Yugioh and Magic but when I touched Vanguard, it struck a chord and I used to play pretty well. Of course, I lose a lot more than win but what can you do when you only buy cards every 4 to 5 months? That's also just the thing. I don't play Vanguard that often. I actually haven't bought a booster box since December of 2015. My decks are so behind that I don't even have 8 G-Units for each individual de…Read more >
We know that Murakumo has a hard time vs control decks so here's my take when playing against Nubatama's Dominate. Please feel free to add any good ideas if you think I missed any.
Shiranui Oboro will call a unit from drop and dominate it for free to get 1 attack. With the exception of Fuurai calling from drop, every other dominating skill is from the strides.The thing about their strides is they are somewhat predictable (and thus, the total number of normal attacks can be predicted). It's either:
a.Maguntenbu, Myujinlord, Myujinlord, Maguntebu, Tsukumorakan/Rokushikirakan, or
b.Myujinlord, Myujinlord, Maguntebu, Maguntenbu, Tsukumorakan/Rokushikirakan
In 2nd stride Myujinlord be prepared for multiattacks. If first turn is Maguntenbu then 2n…Read more >
Cardfight Vanguard in 2011 might be the best year for me due to the game is still new and lots of my friends same age, younger or older than me excited to test it. My first clan is Kagero.
However, among all the players that time, I think I'm the first one to go on hiatus at the end of 2011. My other friends still continue to play it. I'm also thinking to sell my cards because the mechanic of the game at that time is not solid like today. More like attack blindly hoping for triggers to appear. There are no single cards being sell that time and only boosters available.
I didn't touch Vanguard for three years and don't even watch the anime but still subscribe the card shop Facebook pages at my local. Lots of tournament being done, old and new …Read more >
The general idea was taken from those blog post talking about you did or did not make it out on the latest episode of whatever show you're watching. This post is simply a (maybe) quick rundown of the who or what got the best and the worst from the this set in its entirety. Not just the cards and archetypes, but also characters, ideologies, people on this wikia, nothing's off the table. As always, I look forward to reading your comments, and I hope I can make a habit of doing these kinds of blogs.
Note: I understand that the set isn't finished, I think we have a decent idea of it, Plus, I really didn't feel like waiting!
Without further ado, let's it into it!
Oracle Think Tank: Alright, let's get the obvious out the way. Oracle Think Tank got…

Hey, all, so in light of all the new Link Joker support that's coming out within the coming year, I thought I might as well make a deck on the only deck type of Link Joker that I actually like, Messiah.
I personally really like the playstyle of Messiah. While it could also be classified as a control deck, I think it's definitely a lot more strategic than Chaos Breaker's "You're not allowed to have any fun!" savage lock style (as many of you know, I despise control decks) and you play around with locking your own field. As well, the Messiah cards just look a lot more majestic and evangelical, while still seeming to fit in well with Link Joker's look. Anyways, enough with the praising and let's get right into the Deck.
Starting off, we have th…
