Today's Card Analysis: Commander, Gary Gannon

The Japanese Card of the Day for June 26th, 2018, is a Spike Brothers Single Rare from V-Extra Booster 01: The Destructive Roar, Commander Gary Gannon.
AUTO [Rearguard Circle]: When an attack it boosts hits a vanguard, [Cost: Put this unit into your soul] draw 2 cards, and put 1 card from your hand on the bottom of your deck.
The original Gary Gannon was a Flame of Hope Aermo clone, and fittingly his remake serves a similar purpose to the Kagerо̄ card in filtering the deck. Gary Gannon has you give up 2 cards to draw 2 cards, a net-neutral exchange that facilitates hand fixing while also allowing you to return trigger units to the deck. In addition to trigger units, Gary can return cards to the deck that you want to search later with the skills of Brakki or General Siefried. This ensures you're not searching for nothing, and also refuels the soul for Siefried, Spike Bouncer, and Black Panther.

The previous Japanese Cards of the Day were Ravenous Dragon Gigarex and Fierce Claw Dragon Laceraterex.

V-Extra Booster 01: 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.
