Blaster Blade has been the face of Cardfight!! Vanguard for over a decade. Aichi’s avatar is one of the most popular characters in the game. He has a rich history in the lore. Bushiroad has created Blaster Blade (D Series) for the D-Standard Format for Cardfight!! Vanguard.

D-Standard Format:

Blaster Blade (D Series) returns to his roots from the beginning of Cardfight!! Vanguard. He has two abilities that retire the opponent’s rear-guards. He has some control of the field. The cost of his abilities is much lower than the original Blaster Blade.

In addition, Blaster Blade provides support for the Keter Sanctuary. You can play this card in a variety of decks for the nation. You may play Blaster Blade with Blaster Dark (D Series) and Phantom Blaster Dark (D Series).

First Ability:

Blaster Blade retires an opponent’s rear-guard when you ride him or you may draw a card if you are unable to retire a rear-guard. The opponent loses a card for offense and defense if you retire a grade 2 unit with intercept. The ability’s value is removing the opponent’s best rear-guard from the field.

Furthermore, the ability to draw a card is a great effect. You have a great incentive to ride Blaster Blade. An opponent may not play a rear-guard on his or her first turn. You gain a free card and quickly gain access to your resources.

Second Ability:

Blaster Blade retires an opponent’s grade 2 or greater rear-guard from the field. Like the first ability, you remove one of the opponent’s key rear-guards from the field, and the opponent loses his or her advantage. You are controlling the field to a minor extent. All decks in the Keter Sanctuary benefits from this ability.

However, this ability has limitations unlike the first ability. You may only retire an opponent’s grade 2 or greater rear-guard. You are unable to retire grade one units that may cause problems for you.

Premium Format:

Blaster Blade (D Series) is the best version of Blaster Blade for the premium format. He is a consistent unit, and his abilities have cheap costs. You can plugin this card in many decks for the Royal Paladins.

This version of Blaster Blade is a good card to ride on your second turn. You may still activate his ability if the opponent does not have a rear-guard. An opponent may not commit any rear-guards during his or her first turn. You draw a card instead of having a Blaster Blade without the option to use his ability.

  • Premium Support:

Blaster Blade (D Series) has a lot of support in the Premium Format. You can play this card in a variety of decks such as Blasters, Alfred, and Altmile. Many units provide abilities to enhance Blaster Blade on the field and search for him in the deck.

For instance, Holy Divine Knight Gancelot Peace Saver is a great card for Blaster Blade. Holy Divine Knight Gancelot provides protection, resources, and offense in a single ability. Your opponent is unable to target Blaster Blade during your turn.

Card Rating:

Overall, Blaster Blade (D Series) is a fantastic card and is a major upgrade from the original card. Blaster Blade controls the field and may give resources to you if he is your vanguard. The ability to draw a card is a great addition to this legendary character from the Keter Sanctuary. I recommend playing a full set of Blaster Blade in the D-Standard Format and Premium Format.
