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.

As we announced in the previous deck profile, we will not be linking our cards back to the Wiki, and there may not be any notes on some of our future deck profiles, due to a multitude of reasons.

We hope you guys will let us know if these changes work for you or if you want it back to how we have always done them. We would like to hear your feedback on this. In the meantime, we also hope that you would continue reading and learning from all the deck profiles we have done and posted here on our blog.

Notes:-

  • This is the very Thavas deck featured in the fight against Maiden Of, with cards swapped out in order to maximize the Wave keyword. Some cards that are considered staples still stay in the deck, such as Magnum Assault, Battle Siren, Stacia and so on. In short, this deck is very flexible in that it allows you to play with the Wave mechanic while still maintaining what made a Thavas deck good in the beginning.
  • Battle Siren, Janka is the main reason why this deck is as maximized with as many cards with the Wave ability as possible. Her attack gets higher the more cards you have on the field, Vanguard included, with the Wave ability.
  • Kelpie Rider, Nikitas plays back to when Aqua Force first came out, with the ability to swap positions with another rear-guard. His other skill of getting 2000 Power allows him to hit the Vanguard for a 5000 Shield guard, and it doesn’t even have a GB restriction to it.
  • As you have seen, the Thavas deck also plays to retiring your opponent’s rear-guards and, with the addition of Wailing Thavas, it makes sure that your opponent will not have anything on the field at the end of your turn (unless they all have Resist). Because his skills deal with how many times your rear-guards have attacked this turn (restanding and attacking again still counts as only 1 unit that attacked), having cards that either swap positions or attack from the back row will help you maximize his retiring power. Not only that, his other skill adds 5000 Power for each rear-guard that has attacked, forcing more and more cards out of your opponent’s hand that is not a Perfect Guard.
  • Dolphin Soldier of Leaping Windy Seas is a great, if not the best alternative to Officer Cadet, Alekbors in that it not only helps you rack up the number of Waves during your turn, it can also hit your opponent’s vanguard at 11000 Power with its skill, in addition to adding one more card to your hand and refreshing your stand triggers in your deck.
