1 Air Element, Sebreeze
3 Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin (G-Guardian)
2 Flame Emperor Dragon King, Asyl Orb Dragon (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • This deck is still a very strong deck but it sadly relies too heavily on your opponent having rear-guards on the field to fully function well. Not only that, but unless I stride, I have a very low hand size, and even with Gojo, Calamity Tower Dragon and draw triggers, my drawing power is quite lacking. And dropping cards for Vortex Dragnewt and even Dragonic Overlord the Great’s skills doesn’t help as much.
  • The deck is also very counterblast heavy. Using Sadegh helps to double my retiring power without an additional cost, but I still do need Protect Orb Dragon and Anna to recover some of my counterblasts.
  • Perdition Dragons does have its shortcomings but against the right timings, it can decimate their opponents and their field. It’s especially effective against rear-guard reliant decks, making the game a bit of a “who shuts down who last” kind of fight.
  • And having the option to change between beatdown with Dragonic Overlord the Great and retiring with Vortex Dragnewt allows this deck some flexibility to deal with whatever kind of opponent you are up against.

1 Dark Element, Dizmel
1 Metal Element, Scryew

Notes:-

  • Just the name says “Blaze” is what all this deck is about! Keeping your opponent’s rear-guards at bay to stay in Blazing as much as possible without using too much of your resources.
  • First of all, let’s look at the pros.
    1. This deck’s Counterblast usage is really low, ranging from 1 to 2 blasts at max to retire almost any units of any grades.
    2. Since the deck consists nearly 80% of units with the Blaze ability, Dragon Dancer, Marcel is a very helpful card to help you search them out whenever the attack hits. Thanks to her +2000 Power when she boosts while your Vanguard is Blazing, you can make Apex Dragon Mage, Kimnara a 10K guard column with an on-hit threat without any problem.
    3. Having Dragon Knights, Nadim and Nadel in the same column will make a 22K attacking column, and a guaranteed Countercharge from Nadel so long your Vanguard has the Blademaster name.
    4. Instead of using Protect Orb Dragon like most people, I preferred using Escort Dragon Attendant, Reas since I like to maximize using my units. Thanks to her having a Blaze ability, using Marcel or Serrated Dracokid’s skills to check for and find Reas gives me the option to call her onto the field, should I need it, and then bounce her back to the hand at the end of the turn.
    5. If you are wondering why Hulkroar Dragon is in there, that’s because of Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Giffin and Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Defeat Flare Dragon. Hulkroar’s skill can be chained with Defeat Flare or Denial Griffin’s skill to prevent a high powered rear guard from even attacking.
  • Here are the cons.
    1. When going against field flooding decks like GP & RP, it will take extra effort to activate Blaze, which may result in a lack of Counterblasts, if not used carefully.
    2. Much like other Kagero decks, when up against another deck which could dish out retire skills as well as you can will put you at a disadvantage as you do need your units just as much.
    3. Nothing is as powerful and almighty than Defeat Flare for dealing with your opponent’s back row but the fact that it’s only usable with an Overlord Vanguard makes it troublesome to use, especially when you wanna use its skill the next turn. Riding up to Overlord will make things pretty obivous so your opponent will most certainly be more careful not to get hit by that.
    4. There isn’t a lot of ways to get the soul count up in this deck, so you have to keep check of our soul whenever you wanna use Reas or even Radiant Dragon’s skill.

Cardfight #41: John’s Brawler Narukami Deck Profile

Hey fighters,

Cardfight #41 sees us pit John’s Brawler Narukami deck against the new DAIGO Special Set G deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Brawler Narukami deck profile, we have it in this post.

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.

First Vanguard
Lizard Soldier, Saishin

Triggers:-
4 Malevolent Djinn (Critical)
4 Brawler, Plasmakick Dragon (Critical)
4 Brawler, Streetfight Dragon (Critical)
4 Brawler, Green Gem Carbuncle (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
4 Mighty Bolt Dragoon
1 Rising Phoenix
4 Secret Fist Brawler, Kokon
4 Dragon Dancer, Anastasia (Sentinel)

Grade 2s:-
4 Brawler, Skyhowl Dragon
1 Brawler, Big Bang Slash Dragon
4 Brawler, Big Bang Slash Buster
3 Demonic Dragon Berserker, Chatura

Grade 3s:-
4 Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Buster
4 Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Dragon

Grade 4s:-
1 Rain Element, Madew
2 True Brawler, Big Bang Knuckle Turbo
1 True Eradicator, Finish Blow Dragon
2 Conquering Supreme Dragon, Conquest Dragon

Notes:-

  • This deck focuses on controlling the opponent’s field via retiring and Big Bang Knuckle Turbo’s skill. All the while retaining its aggression with units like Chatura and Big Bang Slash Buster for on-hit threats.
  • Maximising Skyhowl Dragon to 4 in the deck helps to control early rushes as its cheap Counterblast cost makes it viable from early to late game. Its skill also complements units like Finish Blow Dragon and Conquest Dragon very well.
  • Unlike many typical Brawler decks, this deck plays 12 criticals simply because you can easily stride up, even if you are missing a Big Bang Knuckle unit for Big Bang Knuckle Buster’s skill cost. 4 Mighty Bolt Dragoons sees to that, so that you aren’t absolutely forced to rely on the legion skill to control an opponent’s field.
  • Overall, this deck is one of the most flexible and has the best synergy with the wide spread of strides Narukami has available. The only problem is that this deck has a slow setup, making it vulnerable to faster decks like Royal Paladin. Even so, the deck should not be underestimated as it packs a powerful punch with Big Bang Knuckle Turbo’s skill being a Counterblast 1 to kill 3 units per heart, even if it was used as a first stride without being in Legion first.

Cardfight #41: John’s Brawler Narukami Deck Profile

THEY SEE ME BINDING AND THEY HATIN’ – Leon’s Narukami Vanquisher Deck Profile

Hello, everyone~

Hopefully, everyone has a great start to the new year of 2016. It’s been awhile so let us get started on another deck profile, requested this time by the YouTube handle James Liputra on our recently released Fight Video,  which is between my two Narukami decks, Vanquisher vs Eradicators.

So allow me to spark your ideas and light them up~!

Dragonic_Vanquisher_(Anime-G-NC).png

First Vanguard:
Wildrun Dragoon

Triggers:
Lightning of Triumphant Return, Reseph (Critcal)
Plasma Dance Dragon (Critical)
Dragon Dancer, Vianne (Stand)
4 Deity of Love, Kama
 (Heal)

Grade 1:
Dragon Dancer, Bernadette X1
Mighty Bolt Dragoon X4
Chain-bolt Dragoon X4
Dragon Dancer, Anastasia (Sentinel)

Grade 2:
Wyvern Strike, Bargs
Demonic Dragon Berserker, Chatura
Voltage Horn Dragon
Rockclimb Dragoon

Grade 3:
Dragonic Vanquisher
Dragonic Kaiser Crimson
1 Dragonic Kaiser Vermillion

Strides:
Conquering Supreme Dragon, Dragonic Vanquisher “VOLTAGE”
Conquering Supreme Dragon, Conquest Dragon
Lightning Dragon Knight, Zorras

Some points to take note of:

  • This deck is built for one purpose, BINDING.
    • Nearly almost every card in this deck has a way to send in the dark clouds to bind your opponent’s card one way or another, even if they choose not to call any units in the front for Vanquisher to kick. The more binds you do, the more effective it gets for “Voltage to make even your lowest power unit formidable with its continuous +3K for each bind card in the bind zone.
    • HOWEVER, just like another other G-Format decks, everything in this deck consists of GB1, so in the case that when your opponent misgrades or grade locks you, there will be problems.
  • The deck consist of some cards to help lift the stress off fighting misgraded/grade locking opponents. Bargs (or any 10k vanilla), Chatura and Vermillion are not bound by the GB/Legion restriction.
    • Crimson works nicely as a backup for most Vanquisher builds because of its free cost Limit Break and destructive front row attacks, in the case that you ran out of counterblast or even G-units to stride.
  • There are a lot of Narukami players who don’t have a habit of playing stands in their decks. In my opinion for Vanquisher, it would a great addition to it, based on the fact that Vianne has the abilities to help counter charge and draw. It’s an alternate option to the PG that counter charges, especially since you don’t always get to use that. The more the better. Plus, when “VOLTAGE”‘s skill activates, the stand will no doubt throw your opponent off in that last assault. Also, of note, in the case of being Grade Locked, the stand trigger can help you stay in the beat for additional attacks.

So these are the cards contained in my personal Vanquisher deck. I would like to iterate here that this deck profile is my own build. You can build yours based off mine, or build one completely of your own design. There are more than just one way to play Vanquisher so just add whatever that you want to Ride The Lightning!
