Cardfight!! Vanguard - Deck Discussion: Spectral Duke Dragon


Pretty much, you attempt to swarm the field as fast as you can, then go for the kill using Spectral Duke Dragon's Limit Break 4, Counterblast 2.

Several ways to go about this:
  • Ride the Vortimer Chain Ride Sequence, and follow the requirements to use the abilities.
  • Blade Feather Valkyrie boosting a Flash-Edge Valkyrie hitting a Vanguard. (Counterblast 1)
  • Player of the Holy Bow, Viviane Counterblast 1.
With these 3 options, you can swarm the field, and possibly lose a little bit of advantage when you use Spectral Duke Dragon's Limit Break 4, Counterblast 2. If it fails, keep on delivering hits to your opponent, until your opponent reaches 6 damage.

Be very careful when setting up lanes for your units, because you will only have one chance to swarm the field, then be able to do Spectral Duke Dragon's Limit Break 4, Counterblast 2, so timing needs to be perfect to use this build.

If you have any questions, comments, or thoughts, leave a comment.


  1. I think for this deck, a 6 crit 6 draw is a better option.

    1. So far, 8 Crit 4 draw works for me. If it becomes more of a problem, then, yes, the trigger balance will be changed.

  2. Tested out SDD deck with similar build. The triggers don't matter, but if you allow me to give suggestions then I'd:

    -Replace ALL Satellite Fall Dragon into Gigantech Destroyer
    -Replace 1x G1 Valkyrie and 3x G1 Sagramore with 4x Gareth

    That will give you more consistency. Or at least, for me.

    1. Consistency is the key.

  3. replace sagramore with nimue

    replace all satelite fall dragon with 2 gigantech destroyer and 2 griflet this will work so you can give all aout attack when sdd stand again by using griflet skill maybe if you dont use much counter blast
