Cardfight!! Vanguard - Strategies - Kagero - Part 1

Picking out a Grade 0 Vanguard:
For this deck, pick out Lizard Soldier Conroe for the Grade 0 Vanguard. When you call him to the back row, you can do a Counter Blast 1, and pick out a Grade 0 or Grade 1 card from your Deck and add it to your Hand, which is handy in this strategy because you need to gather 1 Grade 0, 1 Grade 1, and ride with the respected Grade 2 you need.

Strategy:
In this deck, you are focusing in on Superior Riding, which has a cost of Counter Blast 1. For Kageros, there's two Superior Rides: Embodiment of Victory, Aleph and Blazing Flare Dragon. I'll discuss about each Superior Ride below.

For Embodiment of Victory, Aleph, you need the following: Embodiment of Spear, Tahr, Embodiment of Armor, Bahr, and Dragon Knight Aleph. The Grade 2 that you need to ride with is Dragon Knight Aleph, because it holds the effect to Superior Ride. The Grade 1 that you need to have at the time you want to use the effect is Embodiment of Armor, Bahr. The Grade 0 that you need to have at the time you want to use the effect is Embodiment of Spear, Tahr.


For Blazing Flare Dragon, you need the following: Gatling Claw Dragon, Iron Tail Dragon, and Blazing Core Dragon. The Grade 2 that you need to ride with is Blazing Core Dragon, because it holds the effect to Superior Ride. The Grade 1 that you need to have at the time you want to use the effect is Iron Tail Dragon. The Grade 0 that you need to have at the time you want to use the effect is Gatling Claw Dragon.


Unfortunately, we wouldn't have a good chance to have all the cards needed to Superior Ride, hence why I recommend multiple Lizard Soldier Conroe. It increases your odds to Superior Ride, in a sense. Even if you don't need the effect since you already have those cards in your Hand, you can search out other Grade 0s and Grade 1s that you may need later.

Guarding:
We have 20 Grade 0 Shields (10000, except Draw Triggers are 5000 Shields) and 12 Grade 1 Shields (5000) to guard with. Along with the 8 Interceptors (5000), you have Wyvern Guard Barri, which you can discard a card to block an attack completely while Wyvern Guard Barri is in the Guardian Circle.

Sample Deck List:

Grade 0:
4x Embodiment of Spear, Tahr
4x Demonic Dragon Mage Raksha
4x Gatling Claw Dragon
4x Dragon Monk Genjo
4x Lizard Soldier Conroe


Grade 1:

Grade 2:

Grade 3:

If you have any questions, leave a comment. Also, I'm curious if the internet links to the cards help understand  the strategy a bit better, so if you have any comments about that, let me know as well.

  1. Hi there, is this still a viable build now that the 3rd booster set is out? I like the idea of being able to superior ride into either Aleph or Blazing Flare Dragon. But without cards that retire rear guards, Blazing Flare Dragon might not reach it's full potential. Hope to hear from you!

  2. Yeah, it's still viable. You can always drop Gojo for Kimnara, and if you really need Berserk Dragon, you can drop 3 Conroes and 1 Barri for 4 Berserk.
