- Just the name says “Blaze” is what all this deck is about! Keeping your opponent’s rear-guards at bay to stay in Blazing as much as possible without using too much of your resources.
- First of all, let’s look at the pros.
- This deck’s Counterblast usage is really low, ranging from 1 to 2 blasts at max to retire almost any units of any grades.
- Since the deck consists nearly 80% of units with the Blaze ability, Dragon Dancer, Marcel is a very helpful card to help you search them out whenever the attack hits. Thanks to her +2000 Power when she boosts while your Vanguard is Blazing, you can make Apex Dragon Mage, Kimnara a 10K guard column with an on-hit threat without any problem.
- Having Dragon Knights, Nadim and Nadel in the same column will make a 22K attacking column, and a guaranteed Countercharge from Nadel so long your Vanguard has the Blademaster name.
- Instead of using Protect Orb Dragon like most people, I preferred using Escort Dragon Attendant, Reas since I like to maximize using my units. Thanks to her having a Blaze ability, using Marcel or Serrated Dracokid’s skills to check for and find Reas gives me the option to call her onto the field, should I need it, and then bounce her back to the hand at the end of the turn.
- If you are wondering why Hulkroar Dragon is in there, that’s because of Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Giffin and Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Defeat Flare Dragon. Hulkroar’s skill can be chained with Defeat Flare or Denial Griffin’s skill to prevent a high powered rear guard from even attacking.
- Here are the cons.
- When going against field flooding decks like GP & RP, it will take extra effort to activate Blaze, which may result in a lack of Counterblasts, if not used carefully.
- Much like other Kagero decks, when up against another deck which could dish out retire skills as well as you can will put you at a disadvantage as you do need your units just as much.
- Nothing is as powerful and almighty than Defeat Flare for dealing with your opponent’s back row but the fact that it’s only usable with an Overlord Vanguard makes it troublesome to use, especially when you wanna use its skill the next turn. Riding up to Overlord will make things pretty obivous so your opponent will most certainly be more careful not to get hit by that.
- There isn’t a lot of ways to get the soul count up in this deck, so you have to keep check of our soul whenever you wanna use Reas or even Radiant Dragon’s skill.
