- The deck makes very good use of the Blaze mechanic. It has a decent amount of pressure when it comes to attacking, and benefits well from opponents who call or don’t call rear-guards.
- There are many units in the deck offering different grades of retiring such as Gattling Claw Dragon, for retiring an opponent’s First Vanguard in the early game, and Kinnara, for retiring Grade 1 and above units. Sadegh helps as a chain retire, especially during the opponent’s turn if I use Denial Griffin, which empties my opponent’s field and sets me up for activating Blaze easily in my next turn, as well as Radiant Dragon, who benefits from the empty field due to his skill.
- If I ever run out of counterblasts, I have Aethonic to replenish them. Aethonic is another good addition to the deck due to the deck’s focus on retiring, which makes countercharging with him rather doable.Nadim and Nadel are also other good units that can countercharge, making the deck very self-sustaining.
- I’ve been asked questions as to why I don’t run a full playset of Protect Orb Dragon in this deck, and the answer is because Reas has the Blaze ability, and I can search her out with Marcel’s ability.
- Cards like Inspire Yell Dragon, Jannat and Basuit are a few of the cards that give me extra power when I attack, so Dragonic Blademaster’s GB2 skill is more potent on Blaze.
- All in all, I found that it’s a rather balanced deck between critical power, high power, retiring capability and pressure, and playing this deck has always been very fun to play with.
