Icon Kagero

Kagero Emblem

"Kagero" (かげろう Kagerou, literally "Heat Haze") is a clan from the nation of Dragon Empire, and was one of the first playable clans in the game, introduced in Trial Deck 2: Dragonic Overlord alongside Royal Paladin. In the lore, this clan is the strongest military in all of Planet Cray.


Kagero's theme of "fire" is prominent in its effects, with a focus on "burning" the opponent's resources. The main way they do this is by retiring the opponent's rear-guards to gain advantages and weaken, or outright ruin, the opponent's battle formation. The "Blaze" keyword, primarily used by the Blademaster archetype, activates if the player has more rear-guards than the opponent. Each military troop within the clan has its own methods of benefiting and using the retiring mechanic.

The Overlords add a focus on beatdown tactics by restanding the vanguard after attacking certain units, allowing the player to burn the opponent's field while also gaining more drive checks.

Dauntless, like Overlord, also restands, but utilizes the trigger checks gained by restanding to power up the vanguard while also retiring the opponent's rear-guards.

The Perdition troop retire rear-guards based on columns, while powering up from these retires. They can also chain retires as well.

The Seal Dragons allow the opponent to superior call grade 2 units from the top of the opponent's deck, but in doing so gain power from the opponent having multiple grade 2 units on the field, preventing them from intercepting, and even retiring them.

Nouvelle directly penalizes the opponent the most, by preventing them from guarding with certain cards, and even nullifying trigger checks.
