Dreaming Sage, Corron

"Forerunner" (せん Senku) is a keyword introduced in Booster Set 9: Clash of the Knights & Dragons. It currently appears only on grade 0 normal units, which can be used as the first vanguard.

This ability existed since Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights, but was written out in full instead of having a keyword.

How it Works

A "Forerunner" ability activates when a unit of the same clan rides on top of the unit with the ability. If the "Forerunner" card is still in a public zone after the ride (for example, in the soul), you may call it to any of your rear-guard circles.

Even if a card with "Forunner" is removed from the soul before the ride is completed, you may still use the "Forerunner" ability. For example:

  • If Evil God Pontiff, Gastille Daimonas has gained both the Forerunner ability, and the abilities of No Life King, Death Anchor, when Gastille Daimonas would be superior ridden over due to the gained ability from Death Anchor, Gastille Daimonas' Forerunner ability will activate. Since G units cannot exist in the soul, Gastille Daimonas is put into the G zone face up. Face up cards in the G zone are public knowledge, thus allowing Gastille Daimonas' Forerunner ability to resolve, and call itself to a rear-guard circle.
