  • This build is all about focusing on getting that double critical, either by Perfect Raizer or by Legioning with Mega-flare. So this deck goes for the early kill. So much so that your hand size cannot survive for the late game.
  • Turboraizer Custom adds some of the signature characteristics of Nova Grappler’s Standing capabilities. An ideal target to give his skill to is Masuraoraizer, thanks to his own skill to stand another unit in the same column. Not only that but with his “retiring” cost, he can help feed for Legion to Mega-flare.
  • Perfect Raizer is an oddball choice and a lot of people may not consider him in the deck, so if you feel he hinders you, it’s your call to do so. I play him because of the long history I have and nothing can scare an opponent more than 31000 Power double critical Perfect Raizer, especially if you push him to 4 in the ride up. It’s effect is lost these days thanks to G-Guardians, but nothing can force your opponent back in the day than this unit.
  • Trigger wise, I’m quite conscious with having draws to cover the low hand size and it is still in a state of modding, so I may change to an 6 critical, 6 stand or 8 critical, 4 stand build, with either Perfect Referee, 2.99 or Subliminal Grey for offense or defense. Just know that you do need to draw them to use their abilities, so Katanaraizer, while expensive in cost, can help with that. You have a lot of counterblasts to use so feel free to save them for Katanaraizer.

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