Kagerō Emblem

Kagerō (かげろう Kagerou, literally "Heat Haze") is a clan from the Dragon Empire nation, and one of the first playable clans in the game.


Kagero's theme is "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 series, activates if the player has more rear-guards than the opponent.

The Overlords add a focus on beatdown tactics by restanding the Vanguard after it attacks a rear-guard, allowing the player to burn the opponent's field and do more Drive Checks simultaneously.

The Perditions retire rear-guards based on columns, while the Seal Dragons replace the rear-guards they retire with grade 2 rear-guards, then punish the opponent for having those grade 2 rear-guards.

Nouvelle restricts what cards the opponent can guard with and outright negates Damage Checked Triggers.

It is the land assault troop composed of dragons, dragonoids, and machines modeled after them. The dragons and machines both possess combat strength exceeding that of modern weapons.
