It's Summer Break 2019 and with it comes a watery booster from the Bushiroad team – V Extra Booster 08: My Glorious Justice. The eighth Extra Booster brings further support to the Aqua Force navy, the pirate crew from Granblue, and the mecha officers from the Dimensional Police. This latest Cardfight!! Vanguard set includes 63 cards (three VR, six RRR, nine RR, and 30 C) plus 14 Parallel cards (three SVR, nine SP, one SCR, and one XVR). There are also 55 new cards and eight reprints from Trial Decks and past sets. V Extra Booster 08 is available for purchase beginning 9 August 2019 and the MRSP of each booster pack is 4,00 €.
The Aqua Dragon that gives this booster its name naturally deserves the spotlight. Blue Storm Supreme Dragon, Glory Maelstrom is the iconic dragon of the Aqua Force clan, popularly known as the "Blue Dragonic Overlord" since "Mael" has already had numerous evolutions and a rich lore behind it. Leon Soryu, the boy who seeks the wind, is the earthly representation of Maelstrom and both are eternally associated. In the Cardfight!! Vanguard trading card game, Aqua Force uses a multi-attack strategy, especially by abusing the [Stand] mechanic in their Rear-Guards. By paying [Counter Blast (1)], Glory Maelstrom prohibits the opposing player from intercepting and limits the number of cards called to the Guardian circle to one. This means that each attack is a threat and only Perfect Guards are capable of defending against big attacks from the Aqua crew. Blue Storm Supreme Dragon, Glory Maelstrom also gives +10000 [Power] to its front row if his soul has a card with "Maelstrom" in its card name.
The sea is dark and full of terrors when someone plays Granblue. The skeleton army rises once again and it's ready to pillage all Cardfight!! Vanguard tournaments. Lead by the Lich Master himself, Ice Prison Necromancer, Cocytus, his drop zone-themed units promise to shake the Standard meta. Cocytus has a Continuous Ability, in which he gains +10000 [Power] if his drop zone has 10 or more cards or +20000 [Power] / +1 [Critical] if his drop zone has at least 20 cards instead. He also has an Activated Ability: By paying [Counter Blast (1)] and by putting four cards from the top of the Granblue player's deck into their drop zone, Cocytus calls two cards from his drop zone, plus one for each grade 3 in his soul. Self-boosting and a cheap way to fill an empty battlefield? This card is a true Swiss army cutlass.
If Maelstrom gives glory to this booster, then the Dimensional Police gives the justice part. The galactic force has been waiting for new support and Extra Booster 08 definitely delivered. Dimensional Police's most famous subclan is Dimensional Robo – giant robots that swore to protect Planet Cray from villains. Their new commander is Super Dimensional Robo, Dailiner and he gives a new whole meaning to grade 3 units. His Continuous Ability gives all of his grade 3 units +10000 [Shield] and his Activated Ability looks at the top seven cards from his deck and puts up to one Normal unit in his hand. If the unit revealed turns out to be grade 3, Dailiner gets +20000 [Power] / +1 [Critical] until end of turn. One grade can change the pace of the game to the justice side.
Whether you like sea creatures, pirates, or Godzilla-sized robots, Extra Booster 08: My Glorious Justice has got you and your Vanguard circle covered!
