Notes:-

  • Once again, the one thing that I have to mention is that I am not an expert Angel Feather player, yet. There are things that I’m still learning and things that I am still experimenting with. I prefer not to follow the norms and try and find something more worthwhile, as well as put up certain nerfs (or wear weighted armor, as i call it) in the deck to help me learn better.
    • One of those said nerfs is that I purposely did not play any of the Nociels in this deck. Another reason why I did so is because I want to keep it as pure Gavrail for the video, on top of learning things about my deck without Nociel making things easy for me. Though this build may not look like much for veteran players, this is what I consider an entry-level build for players looking to start playing Gavrail.
    • With all of that out of the way…
  • Gavrail has a very complex playstyle. Angel Feathers generally needs to add the cards in their damage zones into their strategies and calculations, but with the swapping units in and out of the damage zone and certain card skills requiring face up units in the damage zone, there’s a lot to take in. But just like with anything, practice makes perfect, and playing this deck will become second nature.
  • The new boosts given to G-BT09 for Angel Feather provides a different way of playing Gavrail from before. Altiel rescues when she appears in the Vanguard circle, which makes Altiel a perfect stalling stride as you find your Nurse of Broken Hearts for your other strides and defenses.
  • Phaleg is a nice companion grade 3 for Gavrail, thanks to her skill where she can go into the damage zone when you discard her for a Stride cost. And if you need a rear-guard or require a rescue check, she helps greatly in both those roles.
  • Aratoron has an interesting skill that makes reinforcing during either main or battle phase. While I haven’t yet worked out the combo with her, based on what I’ve seen from other players using her, there’s a lot of things that can come from her. I don’t plan on underestimating what she can do.
  • There’s an element of deck-out that this deck has, so I am considering whether a second pair of Altiels is viable. The initial reason why I played two was because having a second pair of Raphaels may come in hand better than Altiel’s rescue checks. Now, as I write this, Zachariel is starting to look like she’s losing her place in the G Zone.
  • Since we’re on Zachariel, she provides an alternative finish that Black Seraph, Gavrail can do. On five damage, she gains 10000 Power, which is nothing to laugh at. And if the cards are right and your rescue checks have been frequent, you can get 4 face up cards in your damage zone, making your front row rear-guards a powerhouse with +12000 Power each.
  • Overall, the complexity of the deck is what makes it fun. While it has been cursed with its own power, it can still be something worthwhile to play and main. Give Gavrail a go and enjoy the unknown elements of rescue checks.
