Nova Grappler gets first 9000 power grade 1, Draw Trigger perfect guard coming to Oracle Think Tank

Bushiroad's official TV spot for V-Booster Set 01: UNITE! TEAM Q4 went live today, and will now be circulating on television and YouTube ads. The commercial features two previously-unseen cards for the Oracle Think Tank and Nova Grappler clans, Oracle Think Tank's Draw Trigger perfect guard Miss Mist, and Death Army Guy, the first vanilla grade 1 of the Standard format.
Weather Forecaster, Miss Mist
CONT: Sentinel (You may only have up to 4 cards in your deck with "Sentinel")
AUTO [Guardian Circle]: When placed, by paying [Cost: Discard 1 card from your hand], one of your units cannot be hit until the end of that battle.
Miss Mist is a Double Rare in V-BT01, like Flash Shield Iseult and Wyvern Guard Barri before her, while Death Army Guy is a Common. Her presence in the set confirms the theory that similar Draw Trigger perfect guards will be coming to all clans.

Death Army Guy
Grade 1/9000 Power/No Shield/Nova Grappler - Battleroid
Although the past Death Army units revolved around standing when one's drive check revealed a grade 3, and the new Asura Kaiser seemingly foreshadowed a return of these types of cards, Guy suggests the Death Armies have forsaken their old mechanic in favor of raw power. Death Army Guy is the first grade 1 in Vanguard to have no shield icon whatsoever, though it's still possible to call him to guardian circle just as it's possible to "guard" with shield-less grade 3s.

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

The first Extra Booster set of Standard, V-EB01: The Destructive Roar will launch in Japan June 29th, 2018, and August 3rd for the English-speaking world. The accompanying new anime series, codenamed "Origin," will begin airing May 5th, 2018, on TV Tokyo and affiliated stations. It will be simulcast with English subtitles on YouTube and Crunchyroll.
