Cardfight!! Vanguard - Deck Discussion: Guardian of Truth, Lox


Currently, the strategy is getting Guardian of Truth Chain Ride series successfully, then using Guardian of Truth, Lox's ability to give yourself enough to win against your opponent; however that's not the only strategy.

With the retiring concept of Great Nature, we had to use some cards that would benefit from that, so I used another unit or units that can benefit greatly from this, which are listed below:
  • Pencil Squire, Hammsuke
  • Pencil Knight, Hammsuke
  • Pencil Hero, Hammsuke
With those 3 units, if you apply a retire ability to one of them, an ability then activates in the End Phase:
  • [AUTO] [Counterblast(1)] During your end phase, when this unit is placed onto your Drop Zone from the Rear Guard Circle, if you have a <<Great Nature>> Vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, search your Deck for up to 1 "Pencil _______, Hammsuke", show it to your opponent, and add it to your Hand, then shuffle your Deck.
So, when they retire, you can add another variant of that same card to your Hand at the End Phase without losing advantage.

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


  1. This clan looks pretty interesting and its good to see what a sample deck looks like to see a sense of what its supposed to do.

  2. thank you kuze nice list

    1. Any other Great Nature deck lists do you want done?

  3. build the stand deck list of great nature

  4. Perhaps I'm missing something, but Lox doesn't retire through his effect so I don't really see any way to retire the Hammsuke aside from Leopard and Lox's Persona Blast. With no Heal triggers you can benefit from the Persona Blast/Hammsuke combo once, so unless you use Leopard as your Vanguard (which conflicts with the ride chain) I don't really see how you'd gain significant advantage here.

    1. It wasn't 100% perfect the time it was made, so it may be updated within a few weeks.

  5. Try using cards like Tank Mouse etc to force your retires of early on in the game

  6. I think you should also try binoculars or monocular tiger. They would give a great power advantage and maximize the hamsuke combo.
