What's up, Rogue Squad?! For today's Card of the Day, we're looking at the only Grade 0 this week:

Power: 5000
Grade 0
Clan: Nova Grappler
Race: Battleroid
[AUTO]: Forerunner (When a unit of the same clan rides this unit, you may call this unit to (RC))
[AUTO](RC):[Counter Blast (1)] When an attack by your vanguard with "Blau" in its card name hits a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at up to three cards from the top of your deck, search for up to one card with "Blau" in its card name, reveal it to your opponent, put it into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

...this is definitely an annoying card. Morgenrot is your typical Forerunner starting Vanguard with 5,000 Power, which is pretty basic, but with an effect where if your Blau Vanguard hits the opponent's Vanguard, then you can Counterblast 1 to look at the top 3 cards of your deck for a Blau card to go to your hand. On paper, this is actually a pretty interesting effect as it gives you an easy way to add cards to your hand. However, unlike Silver Thorn Assistant, Ionela; where her effect was free and only required to be boosting the hitting attack, that Counterblast payment can surprisingly be considered expensive especially on a starting unit like Red Dawn here though it's still nice to have the option to get more cards to your hand whether it's a Mars Blaukleuger, Blau Dunkelheit, or any of the ace Blaus.

Overall, I say to only use this effect is you really need the effect at the moment. Aside from that...well, at least it's a 5,000 booster...

Rating: 3/5
Art: 3/5 (Surprisingly bland compared to other Blau arts.)
Next Time: A Daredevil's little brother.

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!




Third card of the week is a card piggybacking of the new Blau support, Morgenrot. Whenever your Blau vanguard’s attack hits the opposing vanguard, look at the top 3 cards of your deck, add a Blau among them to your hand. All for the mere cost of Counterblast 1.


I like this thing. It doesn’t have to boost, and doesn’t need to enter the soul either, so you could +1 potentially (as long as a good bulk of the deck is Blaus) unlike other starters that are +0 washes. A nice trick to pull is when you run 4 regular Blaukluger (since you want an 11k Stern if at all possible). You CB1 for Morgenrot, and then unflip it with Blaukluger. A strict, costless +1 search, which is great. In fact, if you can get Blaukluger to attack the Vanguard every turn for 16k at least, you can actually sit on Grade 2 and the card advantage gained can let you keep up. You might even get the Grade 3 you need to ride.


A note on his use. He’s still only a 5k booster, so unless you can assure yourself that you can have an 11k Vanguard by turn 3, I wouldn’t put Morgenrot behind the Vanguard because 15k vs the prolific amounts of 11k Vanguard will do you in. Because even if Stern can’t be 11k, you still want it to swing at the Vanguard for 16k+ if you want it to have any teeth.


Morgenrot’s a neat starter and Blaus as a whole are just cool.
