   - Refer to the build above (screenshot) for example Triggers Set for specific cards. Reduce and balance Draw Triggers if you are getting "Deck Outs" or more than 9 cards in hand.

   - When playing with Stand Triggers, place your Boosters even if you have an over-powered column, just in-case you draw this trigger to stand that front unit and attack again with the Booster.

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.

Angel Feather Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Any Grade 1 Card (G1) = Keep x1, get another Grade 1 card if you want to keep Nociel (G1).
   - Any Grade 2 Card (G2) = Keep x1, get another Grade 2 card if you want to keep Nociel (G2).
   - Circular Saw, Kiriel (G3) = Keep x1 to ensure a Grade 3 Vanguard.

   - Chief Nurse, Shamsiel (G3) = Keep x1, if you didn't get Kiriel (G3).
   - Pure Keeper, Requiel (G1) = Keep at least x1 (optional).

Basic Battle Strategies

   - This deck build will focus on using the Damage Zone as an extension of your hand, while enhancing your column's Power.

   - For the early part of battle, ride any high base Power units you have, ride Pegasus (G1) and Pegasus (G2) if you have as well to increase your defense every time your opponent lands a Damage.
   - Plan how many Intercepts to use to control incoming damage, for your Counter Blast users.

How To Use Nociel (G1) and Nociel (G2)

Battle Cupid, Nociel (G1)Love Machine Gun, Nociel (G2)
   - Avoid riding Nociel (G1) and Nociel (G2), use them as rear guards to use their skills.
   - Both units can be used like a Counter Charger, place a card face-up, then take a face-down card (this way you'll be able to use more Counter Blasts).
   - If needed, filter a card in hand to select a card that you need from the Damage Zone like a Sentinel Card (PG), an Intercept card, your FV with Heal Trigger, or a Grade 3 unit that you might want to ride as Vanguard next turn.

   - Place Pegasus (G1), Pegasus (G2) or The Phoenix, Calamity Flame (G3) first before using "swaps" to buff these cards and increase your column's Power.

How To Use Circular Saw, Kiriel (G3)

Circular Saw, Kiriel (G3)
   - (VC): LB4 (when you have 4 or more Damage in your Damage Zone) When it attacks a Vanguard, it gets +5,000 Power until end of battle.
   - This skill would increase her Power to 15,000, so you only need a 6,000 Power Booster to reach 21,000 Power.

   - (VC): When placed, CB2 to call a card from your Damage Zone, and put the top card of your deck into your Damage Zone. If a face-down card was called, turn the card put into your Damage Zone face down.
   - TIP: It is best to ride this unit if you have 2CBs unless you have no choice (like riding Shamsiel (G3) instead). Do re-rides if you have another Kiriel (G3) in hand, just make sure you have 2 CBs available.

How To Use Chief Nurse, Shamsiel (G3)

Chief Nurse, Shamsiel (G3)
   - (VC): LB4 When it attacks, you may put a card from your hand into your Damage Zone. If you do, add a card from your Damage Zone to your hand.

   - This skill can be used like a Counter Charger, place a card face-up, then take a face-down card. So also consider riding this card if you don't have available CBs, or if you don't have 2CBs for your Kiriel (G3).
   - If needed, select a card that you need like a Sentinel Card (PG) or Intercept card for example.
   - Use skill to buff up this card and other certain cards as well.

   - (VC): When a card is put into your damage zone, this unit gets +2,000 Power until end of turn.
   - Also a good defensive skill that can sometimes disrupt your opponent's combos.

Counter Blasts

Circular Saw, Kiriel (G3)Core Memory, Armaros (G2)Medical Gunner, Hermieres (G3)
   - Circular Saw, Kiriel (G3) = When placed, CB2 to call a card from your Damage Zone. Reserve at least 2 CBs before riding this card.
   - Core Memory, Armaros (G2) = When attack hits, CB2 to draw a card.
   - Medical Gunner, Hermieres (G3) = When attack hits a Vanguard, CB1 to switch this card to 1 of your cards in the Damage Zone like an Intercept card. Best used when your opponent got 4 Damage or less, to buff up certain cards or to setup multi attacks! Even better if your opponent got a 10,000 base Power Vanguard or lower. If you can draw Stand Triggers, stand your Booster to attack again.

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