Dreaming Sage, Corron

"Forerunner" (せん Senku) is an ability introduced in Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights and later rewritten as a keyword in Booster Set 9: Clash of the Knights & Dragons. It currently appears only on grade 0 normal units that can be used as a first vanguard.

How it Works

When a unit rides on top of a unit with Forerunner, you may call the unit with Forerunner to any of your rear-guard circles.

Note that if a card with "Forunner" is removed from the soul after riding a card, you may still use the Forerunner ability to call it to (RC) as long as it is in a public zone. For example:

  • Evil God Pontiff, Gastille Daimonas has used its own effect to give itself both Forerunner and the abilities of No Life King, Death Anchor. A card is then superior ridden over Gastille Daimonas due to the gained ability from Death Anchor. Gastille Daimonas is put into the G zone face up, as G units cannot exist in the soul. However, as face-up cards in the G zone are public knowledge, Gastille Daimonas' Forerunner can be used, and it will be called to a rear-guard circle.

Originally, Forerunner could only be used if the unit was rode upon by a unit of the same clan. When Clan Fight regulations were implemented, which disallow mixing clans within a deck, this requirement was removed. This restriction is also not present in Cardfight!! Vanguard ZERO, even on cards that originally had the restriction, because Clan Fight is the only allowed regulation.
