  • This Detonix deck is still in an experimental stage, even for a one-shot one-kill deck. Originally built from any spare parts I had and could get, this deck was then upgraded using, once again, whatever spare parts I could get from G-BT09. While most units are staples in a Narukami deck, some are experimental in nature, but I’ll go through the most important notes of this deck.
  • The goal of the deck is to ride up to Detonix Stinger Dragon for its Break Ride ability, ideally with Detonix Drill Dragon, as he can help eliminate your opponent’s back row for the extra critical. But if the situation favors it, you can Break Ride with Armor Break Dragon for a true “all-in” attack.
  • Because it is one-shot, this deck can teach you how to hold your bullets and find other means to whittle down your opponent’s hand size before you get him for the killing blow. Think of it as a Instant Kill move in Guilty Gear games, where you lose your entire Tension meter if you miss your Instant Kill.
  • The problem with using Narukami is the fact that units such as my G-Guardians require Thunderstrike. So units like Martial Arts Dragon, Djinn of Rainy Duststorm and Wildrun Dragoon are there to at least help me get Vritra or Bulwark Dragon’s skills to activate.
  • Hammerknuckle Dragon and Schub are your main front line rear-guards, thanks to their ability to not be retired by Detonix or Armor Break Dragon. Although with the low count of Eradicators that can be in the soul Schub can use for his own ability, as and where you can change a unit to an Eradicator unit, you can do so, and try your utmost to ride up to that unit.
  • Even though the deck looks messy in nature, its all about making your Vanguard as powerful as possible, with power and criticals. It’s an early game kind of deck but it is also a one shot deck, because of how little recovery you have after you’ve used your shot. Have fun, Widowmakers.

As always, if you have any queries, comments or suggestions, feel free to let me, Dempster or Leon know.
