News: Machining Legion, Sanctuary Guard Support Premiered in Monthly Bushiroad Magazine

August 6th, 2015. Approximately twenty-four hours prior to street date, fans have leaked images from the most recent issue of Monthly Bushiroad magazine, revealing an upcoming legion as well as reprint for the Machining subclan in G-BT04: Soul Strike Against the Supreme. A remake of Machining Stag Beetle from Comic Style Vol. 1, the legion combines improved superior call with power gain, and being able to paralyze the opponent's rearguards to prevent them from standing. The issue also unveiled new units specifically designed for the Sanctuary Guard Regalie deck, and Angel Feather breakstride support from G-BT04. The issue also revealed that the existing Machining legion, Machining Tarantula mk II, will be reprinted in G-BT04, and that the promotional card "Blaster Rapier, Lola" from Koshimizu Makoto's Swordsman of Light manga will be packaged with next month's issue.

Machining Scorpio mkII
ACT (Vanguard circle): Once per turn: [Counterblast 1, choose a card with a same name as a unit on your vanguard circle, discard it] If this unit is in legion, choose up to three cards from our soul with "Machining" in their card name, call them to separate rearguard circles as rest, during this turn, increase this unit's power. The increment is equal to the combined power of all units called by this effect.
ACT (Vanguard circle): Once per turn: [Choose one of your rearguards with "Machining" in its card name, put it into your soul] Choose one of your rearguards, stand it, choose one of your opponent's rearguards, during your opponent's next stand phase, that unit cannot stand.

Machining Mosquito mkII
CONT (Rearguard circle): During your turn, if you have a "Machining" vanguard, and if your opponent's vanguard and rearguards are all at rest, this unit gets Power +2000, and "AUTO (Rearguard circle): Once per turn: When this unit's attack hits a vanguard, choose one of your other rearguards, stand it, choose one of your opponent's rearguards, during your opponent's next stand phase, that unit does not stand."

AUTO: Forerunner
CONT (Rearguard circle): Generation Break 1: If you have two or more other grade 1 or less rearguards, and if this unit is in your frontrow, this unit gets Power +5000, and Intercept.

Archer of the Sanctuary
AUTO (Rearguard circle): When this unit attacks, if you have a vanguard with "Sanctuary Guard" in its card name, during that battle, this unit gets Power +2000.
AUTO: [Counterblast 2] When this unit is placed on a rearguard circle, if you have a vanguard with "Sanctuary Guard" in its card name, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your deck for up to one grade 1 or less card, call ti to a rearguard circle, and shuffle that deck.

Black Shiver, Gavriil
AUTO (Vanguard circle): Generation Break 2: When one of your cards is put into the damage zone, during that turn, this unit gets "CONT (Vanguard circle): All of your units in your frontrow get Power +2000."
AUTO (Vanguard circle): [Counterblast 1] During your turn, when your G unit strides, you may pay the cost. If you do, look at three cards from the top of your deck, choose one, and put it into your damage zone face-up. Put the remaining cards on the bottom of your deck in any order, and choose a face-up card from your damage zone, call it to a rearguard circle, during that turn, that unit gets Power +2000.

Gavriil's generation break 2 and stride bonus skill amasses their past boss cards Chief Nurse Shamsiel and Circular Saw Kiriel into a single card, providing a powerful alternative deck to Celestials that can even gain power bonuses during the opponent's turn when damage is checked, or swapped through the guard circle of Nociel. Her name comes from the Russian reading of Gabriel; in Japanese Gavriil is transliterated as ガウリール while Gabriel is ガブリエル.
Soul Strike Against the Supreme will launch in Japan on August 28th, and in the United States on October 2nd.
