Mini-update



Just a quick update. I'll be getting back to projects after a super long break ,so I won't be as free as I used to be. Of course, I'll still be attending weekly VG tournaments and update on my current decks , especially the new ones like Machining and Riser deck(both in separate decks obviously). Still tweaking my Daiyusha beat to be as consistent as Edel Rose Beat. I might give up halfway and make a more DP-dominant build ( ̄へ ̄).

*feels like making a neo-nectar deck since it looks cheap ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ*

Tourney report: 27/1/2012 Lorong AhSoo

Venue: Active Games Collection (Lorong Ahsoo)
Date: 27/1/2012
Time: 6:30pm - 10pm
Deck Used: Overlord Kagero

It's been a while since I've participated in a tourney. Just joined to see the meta and test my deck.

First Round: Zhi - Royal Paladin (Alfred/Baro/SSD)
O
He minimized the amount of rear guards I have so that I can dish out lower number of attacks than him. He has 3 attacks but I have 2 every turn. He regained his momentum even though he missed a grade. The 13k VG helped a lot in reducing card loss later in the game. Won by deck out.

Second Round: XiaoTi - Shadow Paladin (Phantom Blaster Dragon/Overlord)
O
He pulled off (PBO+Macha+Painter+PBD) combo at turn 3 but I maintained 3 attacks every turn after turn 2 and rush from there.

Top 16: Fabian - Kagero (Overlord Kagero)
XOO
First match was guarding 2 triggers for DOTE and he put everything to the VG. No comment there. The other 2 games were just consecutive 3 attacks and criticals.

Top 8: Jesmond - Kagero (Goku Overlord)
XX
For both games, our first triggers were critical triggers and my third damage was DOTE.Funny much. He had much stronger drive checks for both games (his Goku kagero has 23 triggers :O). Also didn't set up my 13k VG while he has stand triggers in his deck for late game.

Looking at yesterday's top 8:
2 RP (Alfred/Baro)
2 RP (MLB)
1 Kagero (Goku Kagero)
2 Kagero (Overlord Kagero)
1 SP (PBD - Overlord)

 Result: Top 8 since it's late and we're okay with sharing prizes. Got Maiden of Trailing Roses but traded for 2 Cosmobeak since I need em for my next deck. The deck I used for the tourney:

Overlord Rush

4 Dragonic Overlord
4 Dragonic Overlord

4 Burning Horn Dragon
4 Berserk Dragon
3 Dragon Knight Nehalem
3 Bellicosity Dragon

4 Embodiment of Armor Bahr
4 Dragon Monk Gojo
3 Wyvern Guard Barryi

4 Embodiment of Spear - Tahr
4 Blu-Ray Dracokid
4 Demonic Dragon Mage Raksha
4 Dragon Monk Genjou

Props to YeeShean for suggesting 14G2s. Though his build runs Iron Tail Dragons to perfect with Burning Horn, I personally run Gojo just in case I don't have the cards I need early game. The deck is just about attacking and pressure.

Majesty Lord Blaster

Majesty Lord Blaster
Grade 3/Royal Paladin/10000 Power/No Shield
Continuous [V]: When your Soul contains [Blaster Blade] and [Blaster Dark], this unit gains +2000 and +1 Critical.
Auto [V]: [Choose 1 [Blaster Blade] and [Blaster Dark] from your Rearguard Circles and send them to Soul] When this card attacks, you may pay the cost. If you do, this unit gains +10000 until the end of the battle.
Now everyone is looking for Blaster Blade and Blaster Dark. Looks like paladins have more solutions before using SSD's effect. Will update after further testing.

Street Bouncer: The value of 1 attack

AUTO [R]: [Rest this unit & Choose a «Nova Grappler» rear-guard on the same column as this unit, and Rest it] When this unit is placed on Rear-guard Circle, if you have a «Nova Grappler» vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, draw a card.

In terms of card advantage, you will not lose your guard and net yourself 1 more card. And in almost any card game, drawing extra cards is good. Not to mention good synergy with Top Gun and Asura Kaiser.

But this card raises more questions. Is it worth it to give up an attack just so that you can draw a card? What does it take for the opponent to lose 1 card? How much is an attack worth? If hitting a rear guard would net you a +1, then this card's skill would have covered it's cost of not attacking. Kinda reminds me of Nemain. A good and not-so-autopilot card for the NG clan.
