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.

- As with most Trial decks, it does what it sets out to do, where it introduces a new play of the clan in question. With the G-TD09, Gear Chronicle gains a new playstyle around the Zodiac Time Beasts race, with Chronojet Dragon G’s first skill that powers up all the Zodiac Time Beasts. It is what I like to call a non-traditional GB2 skill, whereby it doesn’t have GB2, but a continuous skill that gives himself 5000 Power and other Zodiac Time Beast rear-guards 1000 Power for every two cards face up in the G Zone.
- There is not a lot of focus towards Time Leaping in this deck, but for the most part, the ones they provided in this deck, through Chronojet Dragon G’s stride skill and Lishma’s skill, keeps it familiar for those that are used to Time Leap. You can even take apart this deck and bring these units into a Time Leap-centric deck. Lishma’s second skill, letting you draw when she comes back to the rear-guard circle from the bind zone, is excellent, if you have the Counterblasts to afford it. And Chronojet Dragon G’s stride skill will let you call out a unit from your hand before you choose a rear-guard to Time Leap. If you haven’t had a chance to set your field up for Time Leaping, he provides that on-stride chance to.
- Strictly sticking to this deck build, the aim here is to get your Zodiac Time Beasts out on the field, as you get two G Units face up in the G Zone. Then, you will power up your Zodiac Time Beasts and Chronojet Dragon G and hit hard on your opponent, using Lishma to Time Leap herself and potentially increase the number of attacks you can do, and Chronofang Tiger G for debilitating your opponent’s field. There’s not a lot going on for it, but as a base, it’s a stable deck.
- If there’s something I must warn about with this deck, it is Steam Maiden, Imi. Note that when it comes to skills, they must be fully resolved before you can resolve another skill. If you were to call Imi using Chronojet Dragon G’s skill, you cannot activate her second skill to grade down until you resolve the Time Leap part of Chronojet Dragon G’s stride skill. Just be careful with that timing.
- If you boosting this up using pre-existing units, my best advice would be to wait for future boosts that support the Zodiac Time Beasts build. Right now, the deck itself is best taken apart for other deck builds. Already, the deck is taken apart for a Deus Ex Machina, Demiurge deck, but other decks it can be taken apart and introduced into is a Chronojet Dragon deck, the aforementioned Time Leap deck, Chronoscommand or otherwise, and a Chronofang Tiger deck.
