  • Understandably, while it isn’t the top build for Altmile, it is nonetheless a very flexible deck that can potentially fill all your rear-gurards in an instant. The thought process behind this build was to have Altmile call out Garmore, who will then call out Snogal. With the cost needed for Garmore to discard a card, it also helps feed for Brave in a natural way. That is the idea.
  • Running into destruction-based decks like Narukami and Kagero, it is expected that maintaining 2 to 3 Snogals is impossible. Battlesong Angel is the backup for Snogals, with her innate Resist ability. The only problem is trying to fish her out of the deck, which is hard to do. But with some thought and luck, you can use Bouquet Paros to help out with that. Bouquet Paros also can fish for Snogals, if needed.
  • Striding may be the best way to attack your opponent, thanks to its vast versatility, but with the low count of Sicilus, on top of below average count of Grade 3s, it’s a recipe for “you gonna have a bad time”. But as long as you can hit GB2, Altmile’s skill will be helpful in your times outside of striding.
  • This unorthodox, but versatile build of Altmile has its joyous and cringe-worthy moments. But it is purposely built for the flexibility to full-field your opponent and overwhelm him with a combination of Brave, Altmile and Garmore. While not the best build out there, it is a fun one, nonetheless. Feel free to experiment as and how you like and give it a shot once in a while.
