Lozenge Magus revealed as BCF2018 promo

The Japanese Bushiroad Card Fight event page updated today with information on the participation prizes for the BCF2018 tournament, which includes a hotstamped Lozenge Magus promotional card. Lozenge Magus is a Common in V-Booster Set 01: UNITE! TEAM Q4, and the intended First Vanguard for Oracle Think Tank much as Battleraizer is for Nova Grappler.
AUTO: When rode upon, draw a card.
Lozenge is a clone of Glyme from Royal Paladin. Thus far all four of the FVs revealed have been on-ride draw support, forgoing the unique starters of past formats in favor of saving up the soul for paying costs. Although this means First Vanguards are largely a matter of aesthetics in the new Standard format, that doesn't put them beyond bigger deck interactions--Battleraizer can be sent in and out of the soul by Hi-powered Raizer Custom, opening up the possibility that Lozenge will interact directly with her own set of card effects in the future.

V-Booster Set 01: UNITE! TEAM Q4 will launch in Japan May 25th, 2018, and in English June 22nd. It will be accompanied by sleeves based on Dragonic Overlord and Blaster Blade. V-Trial Deck 01: Sendou Aichi and V-TD02: Kai Toshiki launched in Japanese May 11th, 2018, and will launch in English June 8th.

The first Extra Booster set of Standard, V-EB01: The Destructive Roar will launch in Japan June 29th, 2018, and August 2nd for the English-speaking world. The accompanying new anime series, codenamed "Origin," began airing May 5th, with an English-subtitled simulcast on both YouTube and Crunchyroll.
