Vanguard ZERO: Royal Paladin Garmore Deck Build and Guide


Here's a quick guide and tips for Royal Paladin Garmore Deck users in the RPG mobile card game Vanguard ZERO. Available for Android (Google Play) and iOS (App Store).

Garmore gets stronger, simply based on the number of Snogal (G1) and Brugal (G0).
Fang of Light, Garmore (G3) grants Snogal (G1) and Brugal (FV) with "Intercept" using it's skill, so it's perfect for both attack and defense.

Grade 2 Cards

   - Beast Knight, Garmore (G2) = Add x1~x4, to call Snogal (G1), balance with your other Grade 2 cards (depends on player preference, other players doesn't like discarding cards and/or low Power unit).

Trigger Sets

Rank Fight Trigger Set

   - Critical Trigger (x0), Draw Trigger (x9), Stand Trigger (x0), and Heal Trigger (x4)
   - Critical Trigger (x0), Draw Trigger (x7), Stand Trigger (x2), and Heal Trigger (x4)
   - Refer to the build above (screenshot) for example Triggers Set for specific cards.

   - For this build, it is best to set your Heal Triggers to your Gancelot (G3) to put them back into your deck in case you have them in hand, and get Blaster Blade (G2) to Intercept attacks.

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.

Why Use More Draw Triggers?

   - More cards would give you more options, especially for this deck build that might require you to discard cards to get specific cards from your deck.
   - Draw Triggers can also help you grab those Sentinel Cards (PG), more Grade 2 Intercept Cards, and other useful cards to execute your strategies.

Royal Paladin Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Lake Maiden, Lien (G1) or Little Sage, Marron (G1) =Keep x1, if possible to avoid using Snogal (G1) as Vanguard early on.
   - Snogal (G1) = Keep at least x1.
   - Blaster Blade (G2) or Solitary Knight, Gancelot (G3) = Keep x1.
   - Fang of Light, Garmore (G3) = Keep x1 to secure a Grade 3 ride.

   - Flash Shield, Iseult (G1) = Keep at least x1.
   - Alfred Early (G3) = If you have this card, keep x1 if Blaster Blade (G2) or Gancelot (G3) is also present.

Basic Battle Strategies

Example Placement

   - Place your Snogals (G1) to the back row early on to let them Boost then use them to Intercept later on when needed.

   - After riding a Grade 2 card, start building Grade 2 Intercept cards, the plan here is to exhaust your enemy's Intercepts while maintaining your own Intercepts to minimize incoming damages.
   - Activate card effects, try to always find a way to deploy at least x1 Intercept per turn (best x2). Once you run out of Grade 2 cards, use your dogs to Intercept and use other Grade 1 cards to boost them.
   - If possible, avoid discarding Snogal (G1) or other Grade 2 cards when using Garmore (G2), unless needed. Always keep at least 1 dog in play to maintain Garmore's (G3) Power to at least 11,000.

Counter Blasts

Blaster Blade G2Akane G2
   - Depending on your playing style, you can go more aggressive by using Blaster Blade (G2) only to retire your opponent's Intercept cards, or play defensively and use Akane (G2) to call your Snogals (G1) to Intercept attacks, in-case Garmore (G2) is not available or viable to use.

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

How To Build 21,000+ Power Columns

Vanguard + Booster

   - Garmore (G3) = 10,000 base Power Vanguard (+1000 for each Snogal (G1) and Brugal (G0), can reach 22,000 Power if boosted by a 9000 Power Snogal (G1). Can be pushed to 24,000 Power if boosted by a 10,000 Power Snogal (G1), 4 dogs in play.
   - If you used Brugal (G0) as Booster, you'll need 4 dogs in play to reach 7,000 Power, to Boost Garmore (G3) to 21,000 Power.

Rear Guards + Booster

   - Snogal (G1) = 7000 base Power Booster, can reach 8,000~9,000 Power if there are 1~2 dogs (Snogal (G1) and/or Brugal (G0)) in play. Boost any Rear Guard that can reach at least 12,000~13,000 Power to reach 21,000 Power, like:

   - Palamedes (G3) = 13,000 Power with skill, can reach 21,000~22,000 Power with 8,000~9,000 Power Snogal (G1). Can be pushed to 23,000 Power if boosted by a 10,000 Power Snogal (G1), 4 dogs in play.

   - Palamedes (G3) = Use at least 8000 Power Booster like Little Sage, Marron (G1) to reach 21,000 Power.

   - NOTE: Other cards not included here are also OK to use but very situational or unsustainable like Knight of Conviction, Bors (G3), use them if needed.
