What Are We Trying to Accomplish?

The key to this deck is to think slow and steady. We are designed to be a very grindy and controlling deck. While we are capable of dealing out decent amounts of damage. The big thing for us here, is that we are able to withstand or deny even more damage.

We are definitely a Blue Dominance deck here. Once we reach level 2, we get to really put the chokehold on our opponent’s offense, Rejuving 3 a turn and converting their next attack to 0 damage. On top of this, with so much anger hate, if we are able to keep our opponent locked on level one, Blue Escaping Drill allows for even more rejuvenation each combat whenever we lower their anger.

Another interesting addition to this deck is Blue Releasing Drill. Having the ability to reset all attached cards, while possibly resetting our own Wall Breaker or Android Arm Breaker, can be crippling for decks looking to Unleashed multiple levels in a single shot, or take advantage of cards like Saiyan Rescue or Red Trailing Blast. It can even get rid of our opponent’s own Android Arm Breaker that may be keeping us from using Blue Dominance! Not to mention it adds another point of anger hate each combat we are able to tap into. With this on top of our Mastery, our opponent realistically needs 8 anger in order to actually level against us in a single combat! Something a lot of decks would really struggle for, to say the least.

One More to Go!

With our first two lists down, we only have the big man himself left to talk about today.

Again, don’t forget to check out the poll at the end of our next article in order to vote on and add the deck ideas you’d like to see discussed in next week’s TC101.

If this version of the vote is popular, it may become the norm moving forward. So let your voice be heard!

Until next time, FanZ Warriors!
