I'm a big fan of the trading card game "Cardfight!! Vanguard", and so I have a tendency to design playmats for the game. This is where I showcase my work.

I am also currently trying to develop playmats for Yu-Gi-Oh! as well as hybrid mats for Duel Masters/Kaijudo and Magic: The Gathering while working as a sales assistant at a local convenience store.

Journal History

So, I have some "Ancient Dragon" cards I want to share with you. A number of these are going to be making appearances in some of the upcoming chapters of my "Sanctuary of Light" fan fiction, used by Serena's older brother Derek. In this article you will see new lower-grade support, as well as a couple of totally new G-units that would boost the deck pretty heavily I think. So, here we go...

1. “Super Ancient Dragon, Armaggedotitan”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 15000+

Critical: +1

Grade: 4

Skill: Triple Drive!!!

Abilities:

Stride (Released when both players' vanguards are grade 3 or greater!)-Stride Step-[Choose one or more cards with the sum of their grades being 3 or greater from your hand, and discard them] Stride this card on your (VC) from face down.

[ACT](VC)[1/Turn]:[CB(1) & SB(2) & Choose a face down card with the same card name as this unit from your G zone, and turn it face up] Until end of turn, this unit gets “[AUTO](VC): When your rear-guard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name is retired from (RC) due to your card effect, call that card to an open (RC).”.

[AUTO](VC)Generation Break 4: When this unit attacks a vanguard, choose any number of your rear-guards with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name, and retire them. This unit gets [POWER]+3000 for each unit retired with this effect. If you retired five rear-guards, this unit gets drive+1 until end of that battle.

The ultimate finisher for the "Ancient Dragon" deck, a force to be reckoned with. They'll wish they'd had this before the reboot took over. Once each turn, you are required to pay a counterblast of 1, a soulblast of 2 and flip another copy of "Armaggedotitan" from your G-zone face up. The end result is that you'll gain the ability to return an "Ancient Dragon" rear-guard to the field once it gets retired for a card effect. This can be pretty useful when combined with "Ancient Dragon, Hypnohang", for when you retire a rear-guard to re-stand "Hypnohang", you can call the unit you retired back in order to launch an even stronger attack against your opponent's vanguard! But then things work even better with "Armaggedotitan's" Generation Break 4. When attacking a vanguard, under this condition, you can retire any number of "Ancient Dragon" rear-guards you have, giving your vanguard another +3000 power for each unit you retire. Better still, if you retire five units, "Armaggedotitan" gains an additional drive check until the battle is over. If you have at least one "Hypnohang" in your rear-guard, you could get off a total of seven attacks in just one turn. Got two in your rear-guard? You got nine attacks right there!

2. “Super Ancient Dragon, Parastitan”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 0

Critical: 0

Grade: 4

Skill: G Guardian

Abilities:

G Guardian (Usable when both fighters’ vanguards are grade 3 or greater, and the number of face up G guardians in your G zone is three or less)-Opponent Turn’s Guard Step-[Choose a card with “HEAL” from your hand, and discard it] Call this card to your (GC) from face down.

[AUTO]:[CB(1) & Choose one of your rear-guards, and retire it] When this unit is placed on (GC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent’s rear-guards, and retire all of your opponent’s rear-guards in the same column as the chosen unit.

I decided I could try giving them a G-guardian of their own, although this could be used more as a G-guardian for any deck in the clan. When you call "Parastitan" to the guardian circle, you retire one of your rear-guards with a counterblast of 1 in order to retire all of your opponent's rear-guards in the column of your choice. Depending on who you have in the rear-guard, it should be easy enough to recover the unit you retire as part of this card's skill cost, however what you get in return is worth losing one rear-guard, wouldn't you agree?

3. “Ancient Dragon, Stampedotops”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 9000

Critical: +1

Grade: 2

Skill: Intercept

Shield: 5000

Abilities:

[AUTO](RC): When this unit attacks a vanguard, if you have a vanguard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name, this unit gets [POWER]+2000 until end of that battle.

[AUTO](RC)[1/Turn]:[CB(1)] When your other rear-guard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name is retired from (RC) for the cost or effect of your card, if you have a vanguard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at the top three cards of your deck, search for up to one card with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name, call it to (RC) as [REST], and shuffle your deck.

I noticed that the "Ancient Dragons" didn't have a +2000 power attacker like other grade 2 cards across different archetypes and sub-clans. So I decided to develop one of my own, gaining +2000 power while attacking if your vanguard is an "Ancient Dragon". But that's not the best skill "Stampedotops" has. When another "Ancient Dragon" rear-guard is retired for a cost or ability, if you have an "Ancient Dragon" vanguard, you counterblast 1 in order to call an "Ancient Dragon" to the rear-guard in the rest position from within the top three cards of your deck. You shuffle your deck after you make the call. This should help you to replace any rear-guards you can't call back before bringing "Armaggedotitan" into play for the first time, or whatever else you may have in mind.

4. “Ancient Dragon, Apatillery”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 9000

Critical: +1

Grade: 2

Skill: Intercept

Shield: 5000

Abilities:

[AUTO](RC): When your other rear-guard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name is retired due to the cost or effect of your card, this unit gets [POWER]+3000 until end of turn.

5. “Ancient Dragon, Trooperdon”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 7000

Critical: +1

Grade: 1

Skill: Boost

Shield: 5000

Abilities:

[AUTO](RC): When your other rear-guard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name is retired due to the cost or effect of your card, this unit gets [POWER]+3000 until end of turn.

I was surprised that this particular deck didn't come with a unit like this. Thought I'd give them some. It's a simple effect based off of the ability of "Overcast Liberator, Gerraint" and "May Rain Liberator, Bruno", albeit different skill conditions. When another "Ancient Dragon" rear-guard gets retired for your card's effect or skill cost, "Apatillery" and "Trooperdon" here get another +3000 power until end of turn. Depending on how you play your turn, you could get a pretty high-striking column against your opponent.

6. “Ancient Dragon, Salvankylo”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 7000

Critical: +1

Grade: 1

Skill: Boost

Shield: 5000

Abilities:

[CONT](RC): While you are retiring rear-guards for the cost or effect of your vanguard with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name, retiring this unit is regarded as retiring two rear-guards.

[CONT](RC): During your turn, this unit gets [POWER]+2000 for each unit with “Ancient Dragon” in its card name on your (VC).

I suppose you could say this is half-filler half-needed. Both of "Salvankylo's" skills are continuous effects used whilst in the rear-guard. The first is used when you're paying the cost for the abilities of your "Ancient Dragon" vanguard, allowing this unit to be regarded as retiring two rear-guards. It works fairly well with the break-ride skill of "Ancient Dragon, Spinodriver", don't you think? This way you can reduce the number of rear-guards you'd lose and subsequently the number of rear-guards you would have to call in order to replace the retired ones. Now, the second skill works better when you've got a vanguard in Legion or when you've performed stride with another "Ancient Dragon". "Salvankylo's" second ability gives him another +2000 power for each "Ancient Dragon" on the vanguard circle, G-units and hearts alike. Get three "Ancient Dragon" cards onto your vanguard circle, and you'll be able to get "Salvankylo's" power up to 15000 on his own! How much of him would you run?

7. “Ancient Dragon, Coelophyre”

Clan: «Tachikaze»

Race: Dinodragon

Power: 4000

Critical: +1

Grade: 0

Skill: Boost

Shield: 5000

Trigger: [DRAW]+1, [POWER]+5000

Abilities:

[AUTO]:[CB(1) & Put this unit into your soul] When this unit is retired from (RC) for the cost or effect of your card, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent’s grade 1 or less rear-guards, and retire it.

An additional seventh unit comes to you today in the form of a new draw trigger. I know that draw triggers didn't get a great amount of boosted abilities over the last couple of years, and I personally didn't feel as though making a number of them into perfect guards was the best way to make them better. There is one thing that the reboot proves, and that's sometimes the simpler effects can be quite beneficial in various situations. This one can be used for any deck within the «Tachikaze» clan. When retired for the cost or effect of one of your other units, you counterblast 1 and move "Coelophyre" to your soul, allowing you to retire one of your opponent's grade 1 or lower rear-guards. I mean, why wouldn't you want to run one of these bad boys in your deck?

And so concludes our article for today, folks. See you next time!

Unfortunately progress has been a little slow in regards to playmats and Sanctuary of Light due to the fact that my job can take up a lot of my time, sorry guys. I'm currently thinking about what illustrations I should do for the covers of the next volumes before I can upload them. Hell, I still have to finish writing several of them...
