First Vanguard:-
Neon Messiah

Triggers:-
Asteroid Wolf (Critical)
3 Pulse Monk of the Quaking Foot (Critical)
4 Blink Messiah (Critical)
2 Beloved Child of Superstring Theory (Draw)
4 Lady Healer of the Torn World (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
3 Dark Metal Chameleon
4 Destiny Dealer
3 Sacrifice Messiah
3 Lady Keeper of Virtual Reality (Sentinel)

Grade 2s:-
3 Arrester Messiah
3 Awaking Messiah
3 Blast Monk of the Thundering Foot
3 Lady Battler of the Gravity Well

Grade 3s:-
4 Alter Ego Messiah
4 Lady Gunner of the Neutron Star

Strides and G Guardians:-
1 Air Element, Sebreeze
4 Genesis Dragon, Amnesty Messiah
2 Genesis Dragon, Excelics Messiah
1 Genesis Dragon, Judgement Messiah
4 Genesis Dragon, Trans-else Messiah
1 Metal Element, Scryew
3 Death Star-vader, Demon Maxwell

Notes:-

  • The main strategy is to swing in straight with Amnesty Messiah to set up for Excelics or Trans-else depending on the situation on hand. Excelics would be ideal when the opponent has a substantial field and you have the ability to set up at least 5 locked units on the field.
  • This combo works when you have Lady Battler of the Gravity Well with Sacrifice Messiah on one column and Arrester Messiah and Awaking Messiah on the other. The best unit behind the Vanguard would be Dark Metal Chameleon, but it can be switched with Awaking for maximum columns.
  • If you are missing Lady Battler of the Gravity Well or Arrester Messiah, Lady Gunner of the Neutron Star can make up for them, with her ability to rack up the lock unit count.
  • Trans-else Messiah is best used in a situation where you have almost nothing to lock with and the opponent has an excellent field set up. He is excellent when you have at least 2 Awaking Messiahs on the field waiting to be locked. For the combo to be fully effective, you would need Blast Monk of the Thundering Foot in hand before striding to Trans-else.
  • For maximum output for this combo, make sure at least 1 or 2 Awaking Messiah is locked. (ideally 3 but we all know how hard that is right?) Attack with Trans-else first, then pump all triggers to Blast Monk. With any luck, you might check a double critical trigger and enjoy the thundering of critical feet as Blast Monk kicks away.
  • I always like to try and create alternative ways to achieve my combos, and in this case its still Lady Gunner of the Neutron Star! A round of applause for the new VIP. With Lady Gunner, she is so excellent in racking up the lock count, that in the event that you run out of strides, Lady Gunner can be your last ditch attempt at locking units. Do note that she is sadly lacking in the power department. In the case that Awaking Messiah was stuck in your hand when Trans-else hits the field, drop Awaking in the main phase and then watch as Lady Gunner locks him up.
  • On the off chance you are stuck as Alter Ego Messiah, Lady Battler of the Gravity Well can still lock Awaking Messiah. Blast Monk can provide you with the mid-turn unlocking of Awaking, and then proccing Alter Ego’s GB2 skill, for those much needed cards in hand. As this deck doesn’t play any stands, remember that the Vanguard always attacks first. You do not want to risk drawing a trigger you could used on another standing unit.
  • Seeing the importance of Lady Battler of the Gravity Well in some situations, I have chosen to use Neon Messiah as the First Vanguard simply to generate soul and fish out a Grade 3 Messiah from the deck.
  • With the inclusion of G-guardians, I have chosen to use 3 Death Star-vader, Demon Maxwell and 1 Metal Element, Scryew. Demon Maxwell is excellent as a back up for locking Awaking Messiah as they are likely to stay in the back row. However do note that over-committing on Demon Maxwell could result in lack of defenses in the future.
  • The premise of the deck is to ascertain the field situation and make an appropriate response, punishing the opponent’s transgressions or setting up for the following turn whilst defending yourself.

Cardfight #45: JJ’s Trans-else Messiah Link Joker Deck Profile

Deck Profile: DELETE END! – JJ’s Deletor Link Joker Deck Profile

Hey, fighters!

We got JJ back again today to bring you his Deletor Link Joker deck that he used in Cardfight #20.

Take note that this build is one that JJ build to his style. 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.

With that said, here’s JJ’s Deletor deck.

First Vanguard
Acquire Deletor, Igor

Triggers:-
4 Biting Deletor, Geeva (Critical)
2 Cramping Deletor, Edy (Stand)
3 Exulting Deletor, Maestol (Draw)
3 Squeezing Deletor, Id (Draw)
4 Taunting Deletor, Gotho (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
3 Ferment Deletor, Gaen
3 Ill-fate Deletor, Drown
3 Looting Deletor, Gunec
3 Instill Deletor, Ender (Sentinel)

Grade 2s:=
3 Hailing Deletor, Alba
3 Hailing Deletor, Elro
3 Lie-down Deletor, Given
3 Swift Deletor, Geali

Grade 3s:-
3 Daunting Deletor, Oksizz
4 Docking Deletor, Greion
2 Waving Deletor, Greidhol

Grade 4s:-
1 Genesis Dragon, Amnesty Messiah
1 Genesis Dragon, Judgement Messiah
2 Nebula Dragon, Big Crunch Dragon
4 Original Deletor, Egorg

Notes:-

  • The deck’s goal is simple. Soak up to 3 damage, if you are going first, and ride up to Oksizz to get the early cards into the drop zone. Otherwise, once you reach the 1st stride, be more defensive and control your damage while you rack up the Vanish Delete counter. If you need to, reriding Greion will help increase that counter up.

It’s been a while since JJ used this deck in this version of the build, so he doesn’t have that many notes to make about this deck. But he was able to give you the basic idea on how he plays this deck.
