Strides and G Guardians:-
2 Golden Dragon, Build Peak Dragon
2 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • While it is not the full build of the deck, you can very much see what the end game of this deck is, which is to stride to Sunrise Ray Radiant Sword, Gurguit and use the amassed soul and Counterblasts to hit your opponent hard. In fact, Build Peak Dragon can make sure that you hit hard while refunding your resources you have used. Sure, Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon will hit much harder than Build Peak Dragon can, but the refresh of resources makes it much more comfortable to let loose with skills to fulfill and maintain a full field.
  • And as I said in the video, this deck is not meant to be taken seriously to begin with. A lot of parts can be swapped over for better versions, but as it is a budget build, it is as it is, which is a Power focused Gurguit deck build, with slight more emphasis on Stands and Criticals.
  • Lastly, Bernardo. I know that no one will actually go ahead and play this card. He is 8000 Power, and there’s the slightly more viable Cray Elemental that can do the same thing. But that has a Soulblast cost, and I’m saving my soul for Gurguit. He’s just there to give a few wrinkles to Link Joker players, but you can easily swap him for literally anything else. I play him for the sole reason of being able to mess with Link Joker players.

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.

Thanks, guys. 🙂

2 Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare (G-Guardian)
1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Dark Element, Dizmel (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • For my Spectral Duke Dragon deck, it focuses on the early rush since I’m using the chain of Vortimers’ on-ride skills, which lets me call the top 2 cards of my deck after retiring one rear-guard. Careful not to fall into the pitfall of not making sure you have a rear-guard to call on the first ride-up. Your early rush can get broken by carelessness.
  • Because of the call 2 capabilities, Unite abilities can activate very easily and if you are going second, when you can ride and stride on the same turn, the benefits can become immensely great. An example of who can benefit best from that is Holy Sword of Heavenly Law, Gurguit, whose Unite ability can activate without needing to call more units from your hand.
  • Should you miss with riding up to Spectral Duke Dragon, Steel Spear Liberator, Bleoberis can easily compensate for the miss in early rush with its Break Ride skill. Combining it with Spectral Duke Dragon’s Limit Break skill can let me attack twice with my 21000 Power Vanguard.

1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
2 Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare (G-Guardian)
1 Dark Element, Dizmel (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • There isn’t really much that I could say about this deck list, as it is similar to my previous build before G-BT10, which focuses on multiple attacks through superior calling from the deck during the battle phase. However, the new stuff from G-BT10 adds more ways to call units for multi-attacks, as well as provide a decent to devastating power boost to your units.
  • The last part of that comes from Holy Sword of Heavenly Law Gurguit. He can set my G-zone up for GB2, to activate either Gurguit’s skill, if I need it, and also applies early pressure with cards like Henrinus, Kinarius and Pwyll. But also with these units, there’s a need to check and make sure you have enough Counterblasts, hand size and soul for them.
  • For Counterblasts and soul, because Golden Holy Sword, Gurguit includes a Soulblast, Knight of Far Arrows, Saphir is much more helpful in recovering that cost, essentially making Gurguit’s skill free.
  • Holy Mage, Alessia is a great help because of her other skill to gain 15000 Shield, which is especially helpful against decks like Daikaiser. Bust be sure your field is set with a card you want to send back into the deck for Alessia’s skill.
  • Again, there’s not a lot of things I can talk about, as it is a straight-forward deck build. High powered multi-attacks are how this deck is played. That’s all folks.

1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Dark Element, Dizmel (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • Sadly, there’s not much to say about my deck, as it is the old Liberators build from a previous video with some new cards from G-BT10. I’ll do my best to explain what I can.
  • Holy Sword of Heavenly Law, Gurguit is an ideal first stride to use to set up for either Spearcross Dragon or Glorious Reigning Dragon. But because this deck is a Garmore deck, striding up to Gleaming Fang Garmore is a nice unit to use as a finisher. In addition to the skills Gleaming Fang Garmore has, I can also send back units that I will need back in the deck such as triggers or units that has skills that activate when called from the deck. Since I do plenty of shuffling, getting them to rise up to near the top of the deck is made easier.
  • The one thing about my deck is that I did my best to include as many Liberator High Beasts as possible, just in case I ever needed to use Wolf Fang Garmore’s skill. True, there were two more units in G-BT10 that I could add to my deck that fits those 2 criterias, but their skills don’t really match up to how I designed my deck build, as I did make sure it functions much like a Blaster Blade Liberator deck. If you are making a Gold Garmore deck, do feel free to add your own spin to it. There is some freedom to do so and while it is best to make sure that you get as high a count of High Beast units in your deck, a few non-High Beast and/or Liberators won’t hurt it so much. Good luck.

1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Dark Element, Dizmel (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • For my old Liberator deck, it mostly goes well with Liberator of Bonds, Gancelot and his Break Ride. Alfred is there to finish for the deck, when Gancelot isn’t a viable strategy anymore.
  • In all my experience with Gold Paladin, I find that the old Liberators resolve more on pure luck, playing along with whatever you have, good or bad. It makes the deck bomb more often than not, but it’s always quite fun to play it.
  • The strategy for my deck is I will use either Gancelots to start off as my first Grade 3 ride. (With the Break Ride Gancelot being the most preferred). Aside from using Alfred as a finisher, the strides available to Gold Paladin lets you use all sorts of skills to bring the game back to your favor.
  • Holy Flame as a first stride lets me flip a G unit over, which will set up for Spearcross Dragon, as well as my GLORIOUS BOMB (aka Glorious Reigning Dragon), which, when playing more of the stride game, can seal the deal. Just that in the video, there was so much healing done by both Leon and I, that the game became as long as it is.
  • Flying Sword Liberator, Gorlois serves two functions. The first is to power up a Gancelot unit with 5000 Power boosts. The other is to make sure I do not deck out. Liberators are highly likely to deck out, so this is the saving grace I have in this deck.
  • Hope this will help you all in building your deck, if you ar elooking to play the old Liberators.

2 Flame Emperor Dragon King, Asyl Orb Dragon (G-Guardian)
2 Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin (G-Guardian)
1 Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Defeat Flare Dragon (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • Generally speaking, this is your well known “Overlord” build with The X, but done so to my own personal liking. Much like others, the goal is to filter your deck until it is left full of critical triggers. But it is not as simple as you’d think it would be.
  • Everyone knows how great this deck can be, but instead of retelling them, I will instead talk about the cons that this deck has.
    • First off, you don’t have a great choice of G-Guardians purely for defending yourself. Denial Griffin is great and all at retiring attacking rear-guards, but even with Conroe available, you must make sure that you plan your counterblasts so that you can retaliate the next turn. Not only that, but unlike other G-Guardians, he doesn’t get any additional shields, which is one of the biggest problems when G-Guarding.
    • On the same topic, Defeat Flare Dragon will not save you unless your opponent decides to attack with the Vanguard during his first attack step. Like Denial Griffin, he doesn’t get any additional shield. Sure, he can hinder your opponent for one turn, but just like Denial Griffin, managing your Counterblasts is another thing to keep track of.
    • Lastly, this deck does require some semblance of luck. You need to draw the right cards to handle the situation that you are in. Draw triggers, as of this build, is the only way to get some additional cards to help both offensively and defensively.
  • Beyond that, it remains a strong deck that can apply plenty of pressure on your opponent. Combo-wise, the focus is on performing Legion with “the X” as often as you can, and sending your triggers back to the deck with it. Letting the game drag on will benefit you more than your opponent will.
  • And before you ask, yes. I chose not to play Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Overlord “the Ace”, simply because of the focus of this deck. It’s only helpful when you are unable to Legion for some reason, which is only in a few rare cases. You can have him in your G Zone if you prefer, but I’m most certain you’ll find that his place in the G Zone becomes less significant the more you play.

1 Golden Dragon, Rising Shine Dragon
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Sacred Heaven Prayer Master, Reia (G-Guardian)
3 Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • First off, using Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon as my first stride allows me to rush out of the gate with a strong power base. His ability to grant an extra 5000 Power to units that were superior called through unit skills like Gurguit, Henrinus and others can create rear-guard columns with high enough Power to force a 15ooo or 20000 guard, depending on the situation.
  • Proviously, I had Knight of Spring’s Light, Perimore as my main caller but now with Henrinus, I can use his skill to call it to another rear-guard instead of in the same column. The additional cost of a Soulblast is negligible.
  • I only play one Holy Mage, Lavinia because her Perfect Guard is only activated from hand instead of appearing on the RG unlike Candace and the old-style Perfect Guards. So, she’s not a viable choice to call to the Guardian Circle with Sleimy Flare’s skill. But her other skill that allows me to return her back to my hand on Unite by sending another rear-guard to the bottom of the deck is hard to ignore.
  • The combination of Glorious Reigning Dragon (#GLORIOUSBOMB!) and Holsa’s skills is strong, playing to the strength of multiple high-powered attacks. With Holsa pumping 2000 Power to itself (not sure of Holsa’s gender) and the unit in the same column as it when a unit is called, that Power grows exponentially you use Glorious Reigning Dragon’s skill. Combine it with Pwyll and, well, the hike in price for Pwyll becomes a little more justified.
  • Marcia and Gerrie remain effective in Countercharging, as well as building up soul for paying Radiant Sword, Gurguit’s skill. That, on top of Glorious Reigning Dragon’s additional ability to Countercharge and Soulcharge adds to it for the final push with Radiant Sword, Gurguit.
  • There is not that many changes between this build and the last one, but GBT08 really does help Gold Paladin in a sense with providing multi-attacking in one attack phase, something other clans can also do now. But I hope you guys can create your own ways of your Gold Paladin deck.

Notes:
  • There have been almost no changes made to this deck from the previous build other than the addition of Lisbeth, which has been restricted to one copy, in accordance to tournament rulings, as well as the G-units.
  • With the addition of Ilmatar, this deck is gunning towards using Bloom as its focus. However, at the moment changes for that have yet to be made.
  • When you work with units that have multiple copies remaining on the field, Verna actually helps to raise your guarding ability as well as preserve the number of cards in hand which could be left to boost your offense.
  • The rest of the notes are similar to the previous list, so refer to that for more details.
