...is actually quite a mother load in and of itself.
Today's Card on the Japanese Cardfight Vanguard website has made a couple of incredible reveals in advance of Monthly Bushiroad's arrival tomorrow night.
The first is Blue Storm Marine General, Despina. While criticals are generally accepted as suboptimal triggers in Maelstrom decks, I think the majority are going to make room for her, especially since G Units adopt the name of the Vanguards they Stride. It just makes sense since your primary means to generate advantage - Marios and Tidal Bore - both need to hit. Additionally, in the off event you're sitting at 5 damage, Glory Maelstrom locks out guarding entirely, making for one hell of a wicked finisher.
The other is Blue Storm Soldier, Rascal Sweeper, and there's not much to say about it other than, "run 4, period." It is the one card above all else that needs to be in a Maelstrom deck's Grade 2 lineup. And really, similar cards are jealous as all hell. He does more than both Miranda and Regulation Aglovale while being a common to boot.
