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.

- Whether you count it as Royal Paladins “coming full circle” or “going back to square one”, this new Trial deck focused more on calling units with the Brave ability, as well as activating the Brave ability. Selfes is good in activating Brave for your other units, which also makes him quite a good first Stride in any Brave Royal Paladin deck, this one or older.
- However, there is a slight problem with the trial deck as it is. You do need to have units out that has the Brave ability to even make full use of Selfes. As you can see in the video, 5ooo Power may be reason enough to pop his skill, but when I saw that there wasn’t any units on the field at that time to take advantage of the low hand size, it made much less sense to use it. And that is kind of the idea.
- The reason why is because, in this deck, it plays towards high power and multiple calling. Though not as much as a fully constructed Royal Paladin deck, but when the cards are right, you can attack 4 times in a turn. But that leads to another thing the deck lacks. A reliable amount of units with the Brave ability to call out. However, this lacking part is easily fixed with boost from the TRY3 NEXT booster or the older cards.
- It’s hard to do, but when you play this deck, it’s hard to shake off the old playstyle of Altmile, which is superior calling Grade 2s from the deck. As you can see, most units you can call with Carasius’ skill is Grade 1. So you may actually need to plan to call boosters, rather than attackers.
- But overall, Royal Paladins have taken a new or familiar playstyle, and it is a fun deck to play on its own. But once it gets its boost, including the new Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile, it can go much further than it has right now.
