- The Legion deck is, to put it nicely, unique. The support a Gear Chronicle Legion deck was given in G-CB04 was an odd addition to the deck, but we have it here nonetheless. (Any further comments deserve their own “Grind My Rear-Guards” episode)
- And the verdict we have with this Legion deck is that it is surprisingly fun. Whenever you want a cheap deck, or just want to have fun with chance in Vanguard, the Legion deck adds a nice amount of suspense in every play you make.
- Slow Divider Dragon would be your ideal ride up, thanks to his on-ride ability. You have the chance to add one card to your hand, if both units you sent from the top of the deck to the drop zone are of the same grade. Otherwise, it helps to pay for Legion cost. Rightfully so, as both Slow Divider Dragon and Ruin Disposal Dragon has on-Legion abilities. Slow Divider’s on-Legion is better, as you can add a card in your hand, while simultaneously sending your opponent’s unit back to the bottom of his/her deck. It adds an element of strategy to it.
- With the theme of this particular cardfight being Mystery-flare Dragon against Sage-saint Professor, Bigbelly, you would think that this deck would be built to maximize the ability to activate Mystery-flare’s skill with ease by balancing out between the Grade 1s, 2s and 3s. While you are free to do so, note that with abilities like performing Legion and G-Guardians Uluru and Raphanna, you can perform pseudo deck filtering to send back Grade 3s to increase your chance to proc Mystery-flare Dragon.
- The reason why we are able to play Mystery-flare in this deck is because it has not a lot of units that uses Counterblasts, and units that does a good amount of Counter Charging too, such as Trumpeting Worker.
- Lastly, while you may end up with a lot of soul to work with, it is all for Puzur-Ili’s use. When you know you can catch your opponent, popping his ability to stop your opponent from calling Grade 0s puts the cherry on top of this deck. Just be sure to take note of how many Puzur-Ilis you have, as both Slow Divider Dragon and Ruin Disposal Dragon’s Legion Mate is Puzur-Ili.
