Trigger Sets

Rank Fight Trigger Set

   - Critical Trigger (x0), Draw Trigger (x9), Stand Trigger (x0), and Heal Trigger (x4)
   - Refer to the build above (screenshot) for example Triggers Set for specific cards.
   - Do not set Heal Triggers to your Perfect Raizer (G3).

For Non Rank Fight Battles

   - NOTE: Feel free to experiment with other Trigger Sets according to your preference. Add more Critical Triggers and/or Stand Triggers if you want to use this deck for certain events, like non Rank Fights that would require you to finish the battle asap.

Nova Grappler Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Burstraizer (G1) and/or Raizer Custom (G1) = Keep x1.
   - Transraizer (G2) and/or Hi-powered Raizer Custom (G2) = Keep x1.
   - Perfect Raizer (G3) = Keep x1, to ensure a Grade 3 ride, but if you didn't get one, keep x1 Asura Kaiser (G3) if you have.

   - Twin Blader (G1) = Keep at least x1.
   - Screamin' and Dancin' Announcer, Shout (G1) = Keep x1 if you have this card.

Basic Battle Strategies

   - Focus on riding all Raizers (needed to the Soul) until you can ride Perfect Raizer (G3).
   - Try to Ride Raizer Custom (G1) > Hi-powered Raizer Custom (G2) while Burstraizer (FV) is behind them so you won't need to Boost unless needed to do some quick combos.
   - If you still don't have Perfect Raizer (G3) early on, you can use Screamin' and Dancin' Announcer, Shout (G1) if you have, to try and recycle a card in hand.

   - Once you ride Perfect Raizer (G3), use it's skill to move Raizers into your Soul. Place a total of 4 Raizers to add Critical +1 to your Vanguard. If you rode all Raizers, you just need 2 Raizers to reach 4 Raizers.
   - Always clear Interceptors first to land your Crits!

   - Better use this unit to attack first when your opponent's Damage is 4, to check if you can end the battle, or at least pop a Sentinel Card (PG).

   - NOTE: If your opponent's Damage is 5, you might not be able to maximize Perfect Raizer's (G3) skill because of those Sentinel Cards (PG), so at this point, you may ride your Asura Kaiser (G3) if you like to try and break through their Sentinel Cards with Stand effects.
   - Alternatively, you can also use your "Death Army" cards if you have.

Counter Blasts

Brutal Jack G2Kirara G2Perfect Raizer (G3)
   - Brutal Jack (G2) = CB1 to remove Restraint.
   - Magician Girl, Kirara (G2) = CB2 to draw a card. Best during the early stage of the battle to give you chance to recover those CB with Heal Triggers.

   - Perfect Raizer (G3) = When placed, CB2 to put one Battleraizer (G0) into your hand. If you can pay the cost, go and get a Battleraizer (G0) then let it Boost to move it into your deck, or let it stay behind your Hi-powered Raizer Custom (G2) or Raizer Custom (G1) to increase their Power.
   - TIP: You can re-ride another Perfect Raizer (G3) to get another Battleraizer (G0), to increase your Trigger chance and get more Stand Triggers!

   - NOTE: Also consider other card effects that requires Counter Blasts if needed.

How To Build 21,000+ Power Columns

Vanguard + Booster

   - Perfect Raizer (G3) = 11,000 base Power Vanguard (during your turn +3000 Power per "Raizer" in your Soul, Critical +1 if there are 4 or more Raizers), can reach 23,000 Power alone with just 4 Raizers!

Rear Guards + Booster

   - Ultimate Lifeform, Cosmo Lord (G3) = 11,000 base Power, rest a Rear Guard to get +3000 Power until the end of turn.
   - Cosmo Lord (G3) + Any Booster with 6,000~7,000 Power = 23,000~24,000 total Power (if 2 Rear Guards are used).
   - TIP: During your third turn for example, you can rest your Raizers first to increase this unit's Power, then use Perfect Raizer's (G3) skill to put those into your Soul.
   - If you rode Asura Kaiser (G3) early on as Vanguard, try to use this if you need 21,000+ Power for combos.

   - Burstraizer (G1) = 7,000 Power Booster.
   - Burstraizer (G1) + Any Rear Guard with 9,000~11,000 Power = 16,000~18,000 total Power (21,000~23,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).

   - NOTE: Other cards not included here are also OK to use but some are very situational or unsustainable, use them if you like. Also adjust the numbers above depending on your Booster's Power.
