Cardfight #59 sees us pit Brian’s Gurguit Gold Paladin deck against Ben’s Nightrose Granblue deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Gurguit deck profile, we have it in this post.

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.
Knight of Early Dawn, Coel
Strides and G Guardians:-
2 Sunrise Ray Radiant Sword, Gurguit
4 Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon
2 Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon
1 Golden Dragon, Ray Breath Dragon
1 Golden Knight of Incandescence, Ebraucus
1 Golden Dragon, Rising Shine Dragon
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
3 Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare (G-Guardian)
- First off, using Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon as my first stride allows me to rush out of the gate with a strong power base. His ability to grant an extra 5000 Power to units that were superior called through unit skills like Gurguit, Henrinus and others can create rear-guard columns with high enough Power to force a 15ooo or 20000 guard, depending on the situation.
- Proviously, I had Knight of Spring’s Light, Perimore as my main caller but now with Henrinus, I can use his skill to call it to another rear-guard instead of in the same column. The additional cost of a Soulblast is negligible.
- I only play one Holy Mage, Lavinia because her Perfect Guard is only activated from hand instead of appearing on the RG unlike Candace and the old-style Perfect Guards. So, she’s not a viable choice to call to the Guardian Circle with Sleimy Flare’s skill. But her other skill that allows me to return her back to my hand on Unite by sending another rear-guard to the bottom of the deck is hard to ignore.
- The combination of Glorious Reigning Dragon (#GLORIOUSBOMB!) and Holsa’s skills is strong, playing to the strength of multiple high-powered attacks. With Holsa pumping 2000 Power to itself (not sure of Holsa’s gender) and the unit in the same column as it when a unit is called, that Power grows exponentially you use Glorious Reigning Dragon’s skill. Combine it with Pwyll and, well, the hike in price for Pwyll becomes a little more justified.
- Marcia and Gerrie remain effective in Countercharging, as well as building up soul for paying Radiant Sword, Gurguit’s skill. That, on top of Glorious Reigning Dragon’s additional ability to Countercharge and Soulcharge adds to it for the final push with Radiant Sword, Gurguit.
- There is not that many changes between this build and the last one, but GBT08 really does help Gold Paladin in a sense with providing multi-attacking in one attack phase, something other clans can also do now. But I hope you guys can create your own ways of your Gold Paladin deck.
