News: School Punisher Leo-pald and Cocytus "Reverse" Revealed, Ethics Buster Extreme Shown in NND Broadcast

This morning Bushiroad revealed a series of cards following the showcasing of VG-EB07: Mystical Magus in a Nicolive broadcast, attracting over one million visitors. After the display on NicoNico Douga, Doctor O later uploaded higher-quality images of the cards to the net. Among those shown were two new Reverse cards, for Granblue's Cocytus and Great Nature's Leo-pald, the latter of which had been teased by Doctor O on Twitter the night before. To cap off the event, Nova Grappler's new crossbreak ride Ethics Buster Extreme was shown in full, bringing their strategy full circle with a new version of Asura Kaiser's skill.

Cocytus in particular has drawn attention for comboing with Granblue's Card of the Day, Banshee Strolling Under the Sea, a Granblue incarnation of Dindrane with which Cocytus “Я” can use to quickly grab up card advantage through a +2 and create a 9000-power booster in the process.
