Team Q4 playmat to be included in V-BT01 cases

Duel Portal reports that each 20-box case of BT01: UNITE! TEAM Q4 will come with one large rubber playmat featuring the set's cover illustration of King of Knights Alfred with the Team Q4 members. Each booster box will come packaged with three standard Gift Markers, one for each type.

Furthermore, the promotional cards that will be distributed as part of the set's campaign will be Snogal (Royal Paladin) Grapeshot Wyvern (Kagerou) Onmyoji of the Moonlit Night (Oracle Think Tank) and Extra Muscular. (Nova Grappler) For every 4 normal booster packs purchased cardfighters will receive a Special Pack containing one of these promotional cards paired with a corresponding Gift Marker of one of the Q4 members. (Sendou Aichi, Kai Toshiki, Tokura Misaki, or Katsuragi Kamui.) The Markers correspond to that character's deck, so for example the Aichi Marker will be Force while the Misaki Marker will be Protect, and the Kamui marker will be Accel.

All of this information was confirmed earlier today on the final episode of Weekly Bites Z. The first episode of the new Weekly Bites series will commence Tuesday May 1st at 9:00 PM JST.

AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When the attack it boosts hits a vanguard, by paying [Soulblast 1] return this unit to your hand.

Grapeshot Wyvern
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When placed, if the opponent's rearguard has been retired during this turn, 1 of your units gets Power +3000 until end of turn.

Onmyoji of the Moonlit Night
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When placed, by paying [Soulblast 1, discard 1], put one card from the bottom of your deck into your hand.

Extra Muscular
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When it Stands, this unit gets Power +3000 until end of turn.

Of note is that Extra Muscular will gain the 3k power boost when he stands at the beginning of the turn as well as via skills, so the card can effectively become a 15k attacker for every turn after it's first placed.
