Cardfight!! Vanguard - Hybrid Strategies - Blaster - Part 3

Picking out a Grade 0 Vanguard:
As said in "Cardfight!! Vanguard - Hybrid Strategies - Blaster - Part 1 - Shadow Paladin as Vanguard Clan Unit", I would pick Fullbau.

Basic Strategy:
For the units before, when is a good time to use the Non-Shadow Paladin Units?
When the Vanguard, in question, is not affected by the non-Shadow Paladin Units. If you have Phantom Blaster Overlord as your Vanguard, it is NOT ideal to have non-Shadow Paladin Units out.

What else would be ideal for this deck?
Having 3 units at hand without losing much of an advantage when using Phantom Blaster Dragon's skill, or having Phantom Blaster Overlord in hand when you want to use Phantom Blaster Overlord's skill.

If you have any questions, leave a comment.


  1. With BT05 coming out and a new Critical trigger for Shadow Paladins, is it feasible to change 1 type of trigger to Critical trigger? Or is it better to keep the pressure onto your opponent that you might get a stand trigger and waste another 5k guard?

  2. @ Anonymous

    It is plausable to replace the Stand Trigger with a Critical Trigger. It'll just depend on the preference.

  3. can you make strategies with the trial decks
