Cardfight #89: Dempster’s Ahsha Neo Nectar Deck Profile

Hey, Rear-guards!

Cardfight #89 sees us pit Dempster’s Ahsha Neo Nectar deck against ZaCaptain’s Luquier Pale Moon deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Ahsha deck profile, we have it in this post.

If you want to check out what’s in the Luquier deck, click here.

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.

Thanks, guys. 🙂

2 Passiflora Flower Princess, Marleena (G-Guardian)
2 Sacred Tree Dragon, Rain Breath Dragon (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • Keeping ZaCaptain’s wise words of “Evolve or Die”, this deck has been tweaked to lean towards one style: multiple attacks. Learning from past experiences, huge attacks can be guarded off easily with just two cards: a Perfect Guard and its cost. It makes all the effort you put in to boost your power moot. As such, I run 6 stands in this deck, bringing draw triggers to a minimum.
  • Of course, this isn’t to say that this deck is free from hand size problems. In fact, it still faces this problem. Running more stands means a greater chance to stand your rear guards, forcing your opponent to drop more cards in their hand to guard. Mylis serves as both a critical trigger and an extra power/draw when your Vanguard attacks.
  • Ida is still a great First Vanguard to have, so use her whenever you can. If you wanna make sure Ahsha’s stride skill isn’t wasted, you can play more than 1 Idas in your deck.
  • I switched out Greenshot Elf for Anelma because she is a lot more flexible for different situations. Even though she cannot attack from the back, she can still boost if you activate her Bloom.
  • When it comes to attacking from the back, look no further than Noel herself. If you have enough cards to drop and if you’re confident on delivering massive damage during your turn, leave it to her to do the job.

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

Cardfight #89: Dempster’s Ahsha Neo Nectar Deck Profile

Cardfight #76: Dempster’s Bloom Neo Nectar Deck Profile

Hey, fighters!

Cardfight #76 sees us pit Dempster’s Bloom Neo Nectar deck against ZaCaptain’s Big Bang Knuckle Narukami deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Bloom deck profile, we have it in this post.

If you want to check out what’s in the Big Bang Knuckle deck, click here.

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:-
Bean Sprout Maiden, Ida

Triggers:-
3 Agave Knight (Critical)
1 Flower Garden Maiden, Mylis (Critical)
4 Watering Elf (Stand)
4 Monkeypod Dragon (Draw)
4 Calla Pixy, Quitterie (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
4 Valkyrie of Reclamation, Padmini
4 Pure Maiden, Katrina
1 Trust Maiden, Odette
4 Cherry Blossom Blizzard Maiden, Lilga (Sentinel-PG)

Grade 2s:-
3 Robust Maiden, Noel
4 Greenshot Elf
2 Ideal Maiden, Thuria
Sunlight Maiden, Pora

Grade 3s:-
4 Ranunculus of Searing Heart, Ahsha
4 Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha

Strides and G Guardians:-
2 Flower Princess of Balmy Breeze, Ilmatar
2 Flower Princess of Faith, Celine
2 Flower Princess of Beautiful Winter, Inverno
4 Dream-spinning Ranunculus, Ahsha
2 Ranunculus in Glorious Bloom, Ahsha
2 Passiflora Flower Princess, Marleena (G-Guardian)
2 Sacred Tree Dragon, Rain Breath Dragon (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • The new Ahsha deck focuses even more on the Bloom mechanic, so having more than 1 copy of the cards you want to play is of utmost importance. I would recommend 3 to 4 copies of each card unless it’s Thuria or you do not have enough to play with.
  • On that note, this deck is incomplete as this is built straight out of the Trial Deck and the Character Booster. It has since been modified to maximize its Bloom potential.
  • Odette is a good alternative to Katrina because of her ability to add 2000 Power to 2 of your units when she blooms. Additionally, you can send a normal unit from your drop zone back to deck in order to bounce her back to your hand to activate her Bloom once more.
  • This deck has a very prominent problem, and that is the lack of hand size. Monkeypod Dragon is there to lessen the impact a bit, but it still depends on who you call from your hand. My word of advice is to only play the cards you need to play.
  • Soul could also be a problem too, which is why Monkeypod Dragon, Watering Elf and Mylis are important.
  • Noel combos well with Stand triggers because she can attack from the back row as long as you pay the cost of discarding a card from your hand. She’s also Neo Nectar’s version of Royal Paladin’s Pir, which adds 4000 Power to herself and another unit in the same column as her. But depending on your trigger line-up, you will need to be cautious when playing her.
  • Inverno is one of the better cards for Ahsha that helps you reinforce your hand and your field, but I feel that the cost is rather heavy. I find that I am only able to use her second skill if I use her first skill first, so she’s a very situational card. If you don’t need to use her just yet, the Ahsha strides are the way to go.

Cardfight #72: G-TD12 Neo Nectar Trial Deck Profile

Hey, fighters!

Cardfight #72 sees us pit the new Neo Nectar G-TD12 Trial Deck against the new Royal Paladin G-TD11 Trial Deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Neo Nectar deck profile, we have it in this post.

First Vanguard
Bean Sprout Maiden, Ida

Triggers:-
Agave Knight (Critical)
Petition Maiden, Ermir (Stand)
Okawaringo (Draw)
2 Monkeypod Dragon (Draw)
4 Calla Pixy, Quitterie (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
Maple Leaf Squire
Vermillion Battle Maiden, Nelly
4 Brilliance Maiden, Penelope
4 Peas Tateo (Sentinel-PG)

Grade 2s:-
Hiratake Monjirou
Watering Maiden, Ramona
Osmanthus Maiden, Anelma
Monstera Knight

Grade 3s:-
4 Abundant Flower Maiden, Patricia
Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha
Florneula Dragon

Strides and G Guardians:-
2 Flower Princess of Faith, Celine

Notes:-

  • As mentioned in the video, the deck is the bare minimum of what a full Bloom deck would be, with the main focus being pure power beatdown.
  • Since the deck comes with two Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha, the deck can play with two different styles: both pre-bloom and post-bloom. This makes the deck very flexible and allows you to adapt to any situation depending on who you’re fighting against.
  • Brilliance Maiden, Penelope is a good Grade 1 Bloom unit to start out with in the deck with her skill primarily geared towards increasing boost efficiency. Giving 3 units 2000 Power and an additional 2000 more if they’re boosting a unit with Bloom, it is a great alternative to 10000 or 9000 boosters. However, because the number of Bloom units in the trial deck alone isn’t a lot, it’s best to just copy her out for a consistent 7000 boost every turn.
  • Osmanthus Maiden, Anelma is a good alternative to Greenshot Elf for a trial deck, with her Bloom ability giving 3000 Power to 3 units and herself being able to boost if your Vanguard has Ranunculus in its name. The only problem here, however, is that the Anelma called out will not get Boost, so if you ask me, it’s best to just stick to Greenshot Elf.
  • Remember Flower Princess of Perpetual Summer, Verano? Well, seems like her skill has been split between Flower Princess of Faith, Celine and Bean Sprout Maiden, Ida. Ida allows you to send a card back to the drop zone and draw a card if that card has the Bloom ability, and Celine lets you call a unit from your hand and it gets 5000 Power, at the same time letting you Counter Charge and Soul Charge if that called unit has the Bloom ability. In a full Bloom deck, they are invaluable, but in this trial deck’s case, it’s a 50/50.
  • Ida’s other skill also allows two units to get the names of each other, easily allowing you to call out more units if you ever need to. Again, in this trial deck, you won’t get to use that much.

Booster Pack: G Character Booster Vol. 1: TRY3 NEXT (VG-G-CHB01)

Cardfight #60: Team Traffic Light’s Deck Profiles (Overlord the X Kagero, Gurguit Gold Paladin, Ahsha Neo Nectar)

Hey, fighters.

In this special relay fight, where we pitted Team Traffic Light (Leon’s Overlord the X Kagero, Brian’s Gurguit Gold Paladin and Josephine’s Ahsha Neo Nectar) against Team AL Handsome (JJ’s Amon Dark Irregulars, Ben’s Nightrose Granblue and Jasmine’s Blaster Shadow Paladin deck).

If you’re interested in seeing the deck profiles of Team Traffic Light, we have it in this post.

If you’re curious about Team AL Handsome’s deck profiles, click here.

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 their owners. 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.

<<Leon’s Overlord the X Kagero Deck Profile>>

First Vanguard
Lizard Hero, Undeux

Triggers:-
3 Demonic Dragon Mage, Apalala (Critical)
2 Embodiment of Spear, Tahr (Critical)
3 Seal Dragon, Biella (Critical)
4 Gattling Claw Dragon (Draw)
4 Mother Orb Dragon (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
3 Lizard General, Conroe
3 Spear of the Flame Dragon, Tahr
3 Lava Flow Dragon
4 Protect Orb Dragon (Sentinel)

Grade 2s:-
3 Burning Horn Dragon
3 Dragonic Burnout
2 Dragon Knight, Nehalem
2 Emperor Dragon Knight, Nehalem

Grade 3s:-
4 Dragonic Overlord “The X”
4 Dragonic Overlord the End
2 Dragonic Overlord “The Legend”

Strides and G Guardians:-
1 Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Vortex Desire
2 Divine Dragon Knight, Mustafa
2 Flame Emperor Dragon King, Root Flare Dragon
2 Transcendence Divine Dragon, Nouvelle Vague L’Express
4 Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Dragonic Blademaster “Taiten”
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.

First Vanguard
Knight of Early Dawn, Coel

Triggers:-
3 Flame of Victory (Critical)
3 Scarface Lion (Critical)
4 Player of the Holy Pipe, Gerrie (Stand)
2 Gigantech Ringer (Stand)
4 Curable Angel (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
2 Player of the Holy Harp, Nimane
3 Knight of Daybreak, Holsa
3 Dawning Knight, Gorboduc
3 Sunshine Knight, Jeffrey
3 Holy Mage, Candace (Sentinel)
1 Holy Mage, Lavinia (Sentinel)

Grade 2s:-
3 Knight of the Remaining Sun, Henrinus
2 Bullrgal
3 Knight of the Faint Sun, Marcia
2 Holy Mage, Pwyll

Grade 3s:-
4 Sunrise Ray Knight, Gurguit
4 Dawnngal

Strides and G Guardians:-
2 Sunrise Ray Radiant Sword, Gurguit
4 Golden Dragon, Glorious Reigning Dragon
2 Golden Dragon, Scourge Point Dragon
1 Golden Dragon, Ray Breath Dragon
1 Golden Knight of Incandescence, Ebraucus
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.

Notes:-

  • This deck was a test build I came up with to test out the new support. As such, there are many improvements to be made, some of which I have yet to discover for myself.
  • I had intended to play two copies of Watering Elf, but I only had one copy on hand. The reason why I use her and Maiden of Zephyranthes is to serve as fodder for Soul Blasts for Arboros Dragon, Ein Soph Ohr’s skill.
  • While three copies may be enough, I included four of Arboros’ Frontal Guard, Aira instead, as her “Arboros” namesake can be combined well with Arboros Dragon, Ein Soph Ohr’s skill.
  • With both Arboros’ Royal Guard, Airi and Maiden of Flower Screen’s abilities to copy the name of another unit, you can pressure your opponent with additional Power using Sacred Tree Dragon, Jingle Flower Dragon, favors playing more Stand Triggers in the deck.
  • But, if you feel that there are better Grade 2s to play, Maiden of Flower Screen can be taken out for them. Maiden of Flower Screen’s skill may clash with Arboros’ Defensive Wall, Sanelma’s skill. Playing one copy would be enough if you want to include it in your deck.
