Notes:-

  • There is not much notes to point out for this deck, as it isn’t a full build of a deck. All there is to say is that MiMi is best saved as a way to AND to finish your opponent with its skill, which is what I went for. But the deck is an pre-G Era deck build. So the deck itself has a few tricks up its sleeves to deal with any persistent opponents.80

1 Spiritual Deity of Benevolence, Ame-no-sagume
2 State Affair Subjugation Deity, Kamususanoo
3 Sun of Eternity, Amaterasu (G-Guardian)
1 Sunrise-on-high Godhawk, Ichibyoshi (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • Despite other viable First Vanguards, Waffle is still a good starter due to her ability to check the top 3 cards of your deck and call a unit among them, similar to Gold Paladin’s Knight of Early Dawn, Coel. You can choose to use it early to rush your opponent, or save it for when you need to save your hand for other things like maintaining Oracle.
  • Rusk is a good alternative 10000 Power attacker to Taffy, with the added bonus of Resist, for whenever you run into decks that target your rear-guards. Just keep count of the number of Soul you have.
  • Speaking of the soul, Syrup is great for Soul Charging, but be careful not to spam it too much or you’ll end up decking out through a combination of drawing and Soul Charging.
  • The deck is also very Counterblast friendly thanks to Muffin, who provides a good Countercharge engine and deck refreshing and filtering. Being able to send back your criticals always helps.
  • Berry-mousse may  be situational, but she is a perfect unit to have on the field, once you’re ready to call multiple rear-guards during your turn. With every Battle Sister called, she gains 2000 Power, so even having her there when you stride to Miroir or Gelato is also helpful in letting her hit the Vanguard on her own.
  • Since we’re talking about Striding, Madeleine, when combined with Miroir, provides a good win-win situation for you. Miroir’s skill lets you draw a card when an attack hits, or Countercharge when the attack did not hit. In any of those cases, something will happen.
  • Mirior is a good late-game unit due to her Oracle skill of adding 1000 Power to all Battle Sisters in the front row for every card in your hand. So that immediately activates when you have 5 cards, so that means an additional 5000 Power on the spot.
  • But despite all of this, it can be somewhat cumbersome to have non-Battle Sister units in the deck with it. Some of the units do require Especial costs or only provides benefits to Battle Sister units, so its best to maximise the number of Battle Sisters there is in the deck. That… and I ran out of Lozenge Magus to put in the deck. Hehe.

Notes:-

  • Because of the way Oracle works (unfortunately), maintaining your hand size and draw power is of utmost importance. Even though the new boost allows you to drop your whole hand to guard and still gives you the chance to draw back the cards and maintain Oracle, I’d say it’s best if you can manage your resources well. In other words, if you can afford to take a damage, if that means you get to save your hand, then take that damage like a man!
  • With the right cards and right setup, this deck can become potentially Counterblast and Soulblast heavy, and while it’s easy to Soul Charge, Counter Charging isn’t, so manage the cards in your damage zone well. This is also the reason why I play two copies of Deity Spirit Loyalist, Ikutsu-hikone, just in case I need to utilize both of his skills or use one of them more than once.
  • I switched out Arbitrator, Ame-no-Sagiri for Deity Dynasty Defense Official, Amatsu-hikone for a very, very simple reason – and that is the fact that he has an Oracle skill. On his own, he’s a pretty crappy card, with you sacrificing one card from your hand (and at random, I might add) to add him back from the drop zone, but when combined with Deity Spirit Loyalist, Ame-no-oshiho, you can fish him out quickly and filter your deck at the same time. What’s even better is that Ame-no-oshiho’s skill is not once per turn and his +3000 Power lasts until the end of the turn, so if you check a Stand trigger, you know who to Stand.
  • Many people complained that Oracle Think Tank is badly boosted mainly because they can’t fully utilize the clan to bring out Silent Tom’s full potential. Don’t worry, I did too, until now. With Handbell Purification Maiden, Ouka making an appearance, you can essentially make any of your attacking rear-guards a Silent Tom with added skills, increasing your chance to either hit your opponent’s Vanguard or forcing an important card out from their hand. This allows me to reduce the number of Silent Toms I have in favor of adding other cards that can potentially hit harder, like Diviner, Shinatsuhiko.
  • Precious Ophidian is a great alternative cost to pay for Striding if you do not have a Grade 3 in your hand or if you just want to save your hand. The only problem about it that most of us can agree with is the fact that you need to have Oracle before you can use it, and normally if you have 5 cards or more in your hand, you can already pay the cost anyway. But an alternative is always better than not having one, right?
  • Initially I put in only 2 Draw Triggers in case I can’t keep my draw power up, but after playing a few more rounds after the filming of this video, I realized one thing: YOU WILL DECK OUT BY THE 10TH TURN IF YOU DRAW TOO MUCH. Even without Draw triggers, the chance of decking out is so high, not even Lozenge Magus can save you, so don’t draw cards unless you really need to. I have since switched out the Draw Triggers for more Handbell Purification Maiden, Ouka, and even until now I am still trying to figure out ways to slow down the deck out process.
  • Both Sun of Eternity, Amaterasu and Spiritual Sword of Rough Deity, Susanoo have the ability to let you check the top card of your deck and putting it back at the top or bottom, so use it whenever you have the chance to.
  • You would have noticed by now too that this deck isn’t meant to compete in the current competitive scene, but with the new boost from the Character Booster, it can definitely last a lot longer against decks and clans much faster, like Gurguit or even Raging Form Dragon. Try it out against lots of other builds and see how strong your Great Wall of Japanese Mythology is!
  • Huh, what? The extra 5000 Power and Critical from State Affair Subjugation Deity, Kamususanoo? It’s just a better version of Supreme Heavenly Battle Deity, Susanoo, so there really isn’t much to say other than PEE-GEE!!!

Cardfight #66: Dempster’s Magus Oracle Think Tank Deck Profile

Hey, fighters!

Cardfight #66 sees us pit two of Dempster’s decks against each other. His Magus Oracle Think Tank deck, played by ZaCaptain, against his Fenrir Genesis deck. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Magus deck profile, we have it in this post.

If you want to check out what’s in the Fenrir 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
Semilunar Magus

Triggers:-
2 Paisley Magus (Critical)
2 Psychic Bird (Critical)
4 Nebula Witch, NoNo (Stand)
4 Triangle Magus (Draw)
4 Lozenge Magus (Heal)

Grade 1s:-
4 Circle Magus
3 Crescent Magus
3 Octagon Magus
4 Tetra Magus (Sentinel-PG)

Grade 2s:-
3 Cuore Magus
4 Rhombus Magus
3 Stellar Magus

Grade 3s:-
4 Hexagonal Magus
2 Pentagonal Magus
3 Ring Magus

Strides and G Guardians:-
4 Dragon Destroyer Battle Deity, Kamususanoo
4 Lord of Guidance, Wakahirume
4 One Who Views the Planet, Globe Magus
2 Sunrise-on-high Godhawk, Ichibyoshi (G-Guardian)
1 Metal Element, Scryew (G-Guardian)
1 Dark Element, Dizmel (G-Guardian)

Notes:-

  • Relatively speaking, the Magus deck is a psychedelic kind of a deck. What I mean by that is that with abilities like Circle Magus, Paisley Magus and Globe Magus, you can psyche out your opponent, depending on your body language and acting. And without them, you can do the Phoenix Wright thing and bluff your way through and hope you are right on the dot, which can happen more often than not if you remember what’s in the deck.
  • But through the latter way, you have to be careful. Revealing the top card means it’s information your opponent also knows of. When you play the Magus deck, it does pay to make sure that you can turn the reveal to your advantage, such as, in the case of revealing a trigger unit, try and force your opponent to guard more than necessary for something that is not revealed.
  • Globe Magus is a good stride for the Magus build, as you can use her skill at any time in the turn, even before the end phase and in the middle of the drive check. Use it to your advantage, especially when your opponent gives you a guard for one or two triggers.
  • Most of the time, you will be sitting on Hexagonal Magus, thannks to a lack of access to more Pentagonal Magus. Pentagonal Magus is very helpful, when you can’t stride, and combined with the break ride of Hexagonal Magus, hitting her Limit Break becomes very easy. Just be sure your opponent forgets about it.
  • Wakahirume is a complementary stride for the Magus deck, thanks to its ability to place any card in your hand on top of the deck. More “psyche” abilities at your fingertips. However, do note that her skill is an Oracle skill. You will need to have 5 cards in hand in order to use it, so plan ahead and make sure you got a way to activate her ability.
  • Psychic Bird and Nebula Witch, NoNo may not be a Magus, but the draw power from them can help you get a card you need, especially if you managed to check the top card. They are literally there to help you get that needed card on top.
  • Beyond the declaring of the top card for your skills, the deck is a very fun build, but it is quite technical, so practice and remember your card’s skills (and names) and you can enjoy it to its fullest.
