- With this deck, the main focus, obviously, is to depower your opponent as much as you can, while attacking with units that have on-hit effects. Putting in Draw Triggers in this deck helps to get more cards into your hand for calling onto the field and defending.
- For Stand Triggers, The choice of Grandscold against Operator Girl, Reika is very hard, but I went with Grandscold for the extra power he can give to a Stride unit, and as an extra count in the soul. With Golmenas, you would want to avoid blasting out Devourer of Planets, Zeal, so that you can keep the permanent 1000 Power on Galactic Beast, Zeal. But as long as you can get a 7000 Power booster behind the Vanguard, Reika is not a bad choice just for her guaranteed draw.
- Looking back at the fight, this deck’s main weakness is fighting an opponent who doesn’t want to hit you to 4 damage. Galactic Zeal’s Limit Break is the only guarantee of power drop that you have. Plasm has become unfavorable as of late, so it may be worth switching him out for Dimensional Robo, Dailion.
- Dropping Evolution Monster, Davain, due to space, dealt a strong blow to the deck’s impact. But with the potential reintroduction of Dailion in the next iteration, Davain can also return. His ability to switch your Vanguard from Zeal to Zeal will help proc unit skills like Bugreed even easier.
- To review the new cards given in G-BT08 for Zeal, Elegance Feather, Golmenas and Foxy Charmy gave the Zeal deck a good refresh. Golmenas’ power drop during your opponent’s turn greatly helps with defences, as long as what’s in your soul. Foxy Charmy, with the magic number in mind, also helps both offensively and defensively, when dealing with a nasty column of rear-guards. Elegance Feather is the odd one out here, but her skill adds that on-hit pressure onto the Vanguard. It’s one off, but in the event that you need that power or on-hit threat, she’s your girl.
- On a side note, Elegance Feather replaced Miracle Beauty. The lack of Stand power was the deciding factor.
- Overall, it is a fun deck to use to mess around with your opponent and their ability to calculate numbers for guarding. It is possible to introduce a couple of Cosmic Heroes that will power up your rear-guards or Vanguard, but ultimately, it’s important to keep the deck fun.
