Cardfight!! Vanguard - Deck Discussion: Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel

Frontal Strategy: Get Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel out as fast as you can. With this strategy, you can fight your opponent with a set-up power lane with a Twin Drive Check, while your opponent still fights with a Grade 1 or Grade 2 Vanguard for the time being.

Secondary Strategy: Limit Break(4), Counterblast (2) Once, you reach 4 damage (or 5 if you get hit by a Critical Trigger), you can go to break your opponent with a strategy listed below:
  • Immediately when you reach 4 damage, you can use Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel to call the top card of your Deck to a Rear Guard Zone. Then, use that power to strike your opponent quickly and cleanly.
  • Next turn, if your opponent survives the assault, you can ride into Spectral Duke Dragon and use that Limit Break when you attack the Vanguard, of which you can do 4 attacks.
  • If he still survives, if you have enough resources, use Mage of Calamity, Tripp and Heal Triggers to have 2 more unflipped damage in the Damage Zone and use Spectral Duke Dragon's Counterblast to open up 4 attacks again.

Grade 0:
4x Flames of Victory
4x Weapons Dealer, Gwydion
4x Falcon Knight of the Azure Sky

  1. Nice strategy! Can i ask for granblue too? Using cards only available in BT06 and with a sample deck list too?

  2. good deck build may you make great nature deck list thanx you

    1. Alright, I'll try to cover everything I can, within a good amount of time. It'll take me some time to get through every single clan, so I'll add it to the list of Requested Topics.

  3. still no great nature deck list i know you busy just reminding you for you won't forget

    1. I prefer to be reminded from time to time so that I know what is going on. Thank you.

    2. Alright, I took a look into Great Nature. I do realize that they are becoming full in BT07; however, I'm going to wait until I have access to testing out builds, so that I can provide with a somewhat accurate deck list.
