  • The point of the deck is to be selective on what you Stride to. Against an opponent that requires a field, Hammer Gewalt, Archraider and Twintempest is the way to go. If u need to finish your opponent fast, then Gluttony Dogma is the way to go if you can call a G-guardian early in the game. Depending on the board state, choosing a relevant first stride will be the key.
  • One of the issues Tachikaze has is the need for field presence while requiring you to retire your own. So, as much as possible, commit enough Counterblast to keep using Gaia Emperor’s stride ability to return units for free. Making use of Baby Camara to bring in a unit to replace itself when it gets retired is a good way to both maintain field presence and filter the deck.
  • Keep in mind that although most cards came from the Reckless Rampage Technical Booster Set, this deck is anything but reckless. Overextend and you may find yourself spent and vulnerable while the opponent returns the favor. Exercise caution, but rampage when the time is right! Have fun!
