Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express prevents your opponent from calling grade one cards to the Guardian Circle, and nullifies trigger effects if your opponent has five damage. This skill was very strong when it was first released to the game. Perfect Guards from Cardfight!! Vanguard G are grade one cards. If your opponent did not have a heal trigger to play a G-Guardian or other triggers, then he or she would be in a bad situation. Victory would be in your hands.

The only effective skill is nullifying your opponent’s triggers. A heal trigger cannot save your opponent from the clutches of defeat.
