As I have mentioned before, we will now be bringing you the deck profiles of future cardfights we are releasing on the channel. Chances are you have been brought here from the YouTube page, but if you came from elsewhere, you can find the video above to that fight.
Take note that this build is one that is used for this cardfight. Changes may have been already made at this point in time by the owner. You are welcome to learn from this deck profile, if you are looking to build one, but we highly encourage you to build yours to fit you.
With that said, here’s Dempster’s Thavas Aqua Force deck from this fight.
Kelpie Rider, Mitros
– I switched out Officer Cadet, Andrey for Mitros because while Andrey gives a rear guard the ability to restand, he is most useful only when my vanguard is Lambros, which delays him an additional turn and risk getting retired. Mitros, on the other hand, ensures that you can hit the 4th wave without spending too many cards in your hand. It also guarantees that the Thavas Mitros calls out can be used for striding or as a cost for Perfect Guard.
– I did not use Ocean Keeper, Plato as my perfect guard because he can only protect the vanguard, which, in the case of my build, is not necessary. There can and will be times where I am forced to protect my rear guards at all costs, and Phaidra helps that out pretty well.
– From the previous matchup, I swapped out 2 Saberflow Sailors for Timos as he provides an additional pressure of retiring my opponent’s rear guards if his attack hits the vanguard.
– Melania is a welcome addition to the deck because not only can she boost any grade 2 other than Saberflow Sailor for a 10k guard, she can also become a 12k attacker with the cost of 1 counterblast and STILL lets you draw if you need to.
– You can stick to either Skyros or swap out to Strikehead Dragon for the sub ace grade 3, but in my case, Skyros can help me filter out Thavas if I don’t have him the first time round. Plus, if I’m stuck with Skyros for a while, his GB1 resist skill helps a lot for my front row units as well.
– My deck now mostly focuses on retiring units, as seen with the addition of Timos and even Aristotle (which is usually my preferred choice for the first stride). However, this build can still hit up to a maximum of 8 waves and they all hit hard like a ship on a cliffside.
That is all for this deck. If you would like to see Thavas’s opponent in Cardfight #38, which is Josephine’s Maiden of Deck, click here.
