Clanfight detail s

Fight Formats are different modes in which a Cardfight!! Vanguard match can be played, and each format provides its own rules. Unless otherwise stated, the Standard Fight Rules are applied normally in each format, including trigger effects and the Sentinel ability.

Clan Fight

Clan Fight is the main tournament format for both the Japanese and English games.

  • Both a main deck and G deck can only contain cards from a single clan, with the following exceptions:
    • Cards whose effects allow them to be part of any clan, such as Cray Elemental, can be used in any deck.
    • Royal Paladin decks can have up to 4 copies of Blaster Dark.
    • Decks that include grade 3 cards without "Jewel Knight" in its card name cannot include any Jewel Knight, Swordmy.
    • Link Joker decks can have any number of cards with "Я" in its card name.
    • Should a card in the G zone change its clan, you may still Stride it onto your Vanguard circle.
    • If Neon Gyze is included in a deck, the deck can have any number of <Zeroth Dragon> cards. Even so, you can only Ultimate Stride as long as your vanguard have the same nation as the <Zeroth Dragon>.
