The Top Ten Cardfight!! Vanguard Cards That Need Reprints!

Cardfight!! Vanguard began in 2011 and not have released any special sets with reprints for the English edition. Many cards are deserving of reprints and are in much need for reprints for players to have access to these cards. I am known for strongly criticizing Bushiroad, but this time they deserve a lot of credit for reviving old decks. Classic cards are regaining value with new support being released in G booster sets. Ezel, Maelstorm, and Vermillion are ready to make a name for themselves in the new generation. I am not considering Fighter's Collection 2013 in the list as it is a Japanese exclusive booster set.

1. Blue Storm Dragon, Maelstorm


Maelstorm is the flavor of the month. He has new support in Fighter's Collection 2015 and Soaring Ascent of Gale & Blossom! It only makes sense to reprint him and all of his forms! Reprinting him would benefit new and old players alike.

2. Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel


The Gold Paladins' play-style was defined by Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel. He is the focal card in my very old Gold Paladin deck. He is a very old card that is out of print. His revival in Stride warrants a reprint in the future.

3. Ultimate Dimensional Robo, Great Daiyusha


Justice will always defeat reign supreme over evil. Great Daiyusha instantly became a fan favorite card after he defeated Ren in one of the best comebacks in Cardfight!! Vanguard. He has since been revived with Legion by becoming True Ultimate Dimensional Robo, Great Daikaiser's Legion Mate. A reprinted is much needed since getting new support. A Legion Leader's mate should always get a reprint to have easy access to the pair.

4. Silver Thorn Dragon Tamer, Luquier


The show's final act features the beautiful and dominating Luquier! She is one of the most expensive RRR cards from the Limit Break era, despite being a mediocre card.

5. Blaster Blade Spirit

Aichi's avatar of light is the one and only Blaster Blade. He was captured by Void, but returned as a spirit to fight against the Void. Blaster Blade Sprite is a great card to play in Royal Paladin decks. His skill is cheaper than the original Blaster Blade.

6. Blaster Dark Spirit

Blaster Dark Spirit is not as popular as Blaster Blade Sprite. However, he is still an awesome card to have in a collection. Shadow Paladins have a few easy methods to use his skill such as Illusionary Revenger, Mordred Phantom's Break Ride skill.

7. Tidal Assault 

Most R cards are inexpensive and easy to find from online vendors. This is not the case with Aqua Force's Tidal Assault. Tidal Assault fits into many decks. Aqua Force's decks are very vestiale as many cards do not require archetypes to active their skills. His ability to attack twice per turn without a cost sets up many vanguards with the powerful skills that trigger during the 3rd or 4th attacks in a turn.

8. Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion


Kai's avatar in season 2 was Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion. This powerful unit was the first unit to be able to attack an entire front row! Dragonic Kaiser Crimson removes the Limit Break's hefty cost of three counter blasts. Vermillion is now freely able to attack a front row without giving up any resources.

9. Soul Saver Dragon

Soul Saver Dragon was undoubtedly the best card in its era when Barcgal was legal as a starting vanguard. Filling the Soul with five cards was very easy. Opponents struggled to block Holy Charging Roar. Three rear-guards gain 5,000 power from the skill. Soul Saver Dragon deserves to be reprinted based on legacy alone.

10. Revenger, Raging Form Dragon


Sacrifice yourself for the raging form! Revenger, Raging Form Dragon was one of the most popular cards to play during the Break Ride Era. His ability to perform a superior persona ride was mind blowing in its time. Shadow Paladins finally became one of the best decks to play with Revengers.
