  • I Initially tested this build with my old G-TCB01 trigger lineup, which was with 6 Criticals, 4 Draws and 2 Stands. However, I later took out all of the Draw Triggers for more push power to force the opponent into Mayhem Tiger’s kill-range. The new build seemed less hand-intensive in comparison to the old build.
  • Untouchable, Milly was swapped out in favour of Kiss-mark, Alma as Shootdown King, Miracle Ace isn’t the deck’s main focus anymore, which resulted in never using Milly as an emergency Charge target. That and the fact that Countercharging is helpful for the amount of Counterblasts the deck consumes.
  • Devil Watch still plays an important role in making Dirty Picaro and his Counterblast-heavy plays manageable, as well as setting up for Mayhem Tiger. He is in the category of Stand triggers where their respective decks have little synergy with them but are ran mostly for their skills.
  • Rising Supernova is a more cost-efficient Super Heavy Chariot, Tiger Centurion, and more. He requires no cost in putting units in charge (other than flipping a G-Unit, whick also sets up for an early Dirty Picaro), as well as the added 10000 Power to the field when the conditions are met. He may not be able to close games in the same fashion as Miracle Ace can, but he is easier to setup.
  • Mayhem Tiger is a powerful tool in either easily forcing a PG or G-Guardian out of your opponent, or more ideally, force him to over-guard or take damage. He is one of your key players in your strategy. Despite needing at least 1 in the deck for your plays, it’s not recommended to run him as a 1-off (minimum 3 copies). This is so that you’ll always have 1 available in common scenarios where you lose your other copies via ride, drawing, damage check, KIA, etc.
  • Spike Brothers in general have a larger learning curve and are easy to make misplays with. However with enough practice and care, they are a force to be reckoned with.
