Bermuda Triangle Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Mermaid Idol, Sedna (G1) = Keep x1, to ensure a Grade 1 ride and to avoid riding Pearl Sisters, Perle (G1) early on, unless you have no choice.
   - Top Idol, Aqua (G2) = Keep x1, to ensure a Grade 2 ride. Keep any Grade 2 card if you don't have her.
   - Velvet Voice, Raindear (G3) = Keep x1, to ensure a Grade 3 ride.
   - Top Idol, Pacifica (G3) = Keep x1, if you don't have Raindear (G3).

   - Mermaid Idol, Elly (G1) = Keep at least x1.

Basic Battle Strategies

How To Use Pearl Sisters (G1) and (G2)

   - If you have them, make sure to manage your resources well and not run out of cards or reduce Soul cards (unless needed). Use both units to keep the number of Soul cards intact while using them as draw source.
   - In case you are wondering, if Pearl Sisters, Perla (G2) got both skills, the (SC1 and draw a card) will proc first before the (SB1 return 1 rear guard to your hand) skill. You may also place more add-on skills to do multiple Soul Charges or Draw more cards if you like.
   - NOTE: If you want to increase cards in Soul, do not activate the second skill (Soul Blast). Use second skill to bounce cards if needed.

How To Use Raindear (G3)

Raindear G3
   - Use Vanguard's skill to bounce back cards to your hand, to setup combos and possibly attack more than 3 times in 1 turn, or to activate more skill effects.
   - Here are some example cards to bounce back:

   - Front Row Cards (rest state) = Bounce these cards after using them to attack (rest state), to setup another attack. Place Trigger bonuses to your Booster if this is your plan, and also consider placing back an Intercept Card to defend or if you can't land another attack.
   - Stand Triggers also works well here, bounce the Attacker and stand the Booster.
   - This is also ideal when your opponent's Damage is 5, to try and break through those Sentinel Cards (PG) using her skill.

   - Pearl Sisters, Perle (G1) = To use her skill during that battle or for next turn.
   - Girls' Rock, Rio (G2) = To use her skill (CB1 to SC1 and draw a card).
   - Rainbow Light, Carine (G3) = To use her skill (CB1 to SC1 and draw a card).
   - Blazer Idols (G1) = To use as buffer during that battle or for next turn.
   - Snow White of the Corals, Claire (G2) = To use as buffer during that battle or for next turn.
   - Mermaid Idol, Elly (G1) = Risky but you can also use your Sentinel Card (PG) to Boost if needed, then bounce them back to hand.
   - Also bounce others cards, depending on the situation or cards you have.

   - Raindear (G3) also got buffed to 11,000 base Power, now you can also use her as rear guard to force your opponent to use Boosters, or for building high Power columns.

   - In case you don't have Raindear (G3) in hand to ride as Grade 3 Vanguard, consider riding straight to your sub Vanguard Top Idol, Pacifica (G3) if you have.
   - TIP: If most of your Triggers went to the Damage Zone, Drop Zone, or Soul, it might be better to ride Top Idol, Pacifica (G3).

Counter Blasts and Soul Blasts

Pacifica G3Rio G2Carine G3
   - Top Idol, Pacifica (G3) = When this unit's attack hits a Vanguard, SB6 and CB4 to call up to 3 cards from your deck (you may also call two or less). Use her as Vanguard or Rear Guard (depends on number of cards in Soul), land your 5th Damage, then activate her skill to setup another attackers to try and break through those Sentinel Cards (PG).

   - Girls' Rock, Rio (G2) = To use her skill (CB1 to SC1 and draw a card).
   - Rainbow Light, Carine (G3) = To use her skill (CB1 to SC1 and draw a card).
   - Using 1 or 2 CBs early on is fine, especially if you are lucky to recover them with Heal Triggers. If you think you don't need to use Top Idol, Pacifica (G3), then focus more here.

   - Bermuda Triangle Cadet,  Caravel (G1) = When placed, SB2 to draw a card.
   - Pearl Sisters, Perla (G2) = SB1 return 1 rear guard to your hand (without second skill).
   - Use these Soul Blasts if you will not ride or use Top Idol, Pacifica's (G3) skill.

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

How To Build 21,000+ Power Columns

   - Velvet Voice, Raindear (G3) = 11,000 base Power Vanguard.
   - Raindear (G3) + Any Booster with 7,000~8,000 Power = 18,000~19,000 total Power (23,000~24,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).

   - Top Idol, Pacifica (G3) = 10,000 base Power Vanguard (can reach 14,000 Power if you have 4 or more rear guards, during your turn).
   - Top Idol, Pacifica (G3) + Any Booster with 7,000~8,000 Power = 21,000~22,000 total Power.

Rear Guards + Booster

   - Mermaid Idol, Sedna (G1) = 8,000 Power Booster.
   - Sedna (G1) + Any Rear Guard with 8,000~10,000 Power = 16,000~18,000 total Power (21,000~23,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).
   - Sedna (G1) + Mermaid Idol, Flute (G2) or Raindear (G3) = 19,000 total Power (24,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).
   - Sedna (G1) + Super Idol, Ceram (G3) = 21,000 total Power (CB1).

   - Claire (G2) or Blazer Idols (G1) = Buff a unit's Power (+2000 until the end of turn). Buff columns listed above or these example columns:
   - Sedna (G1) + Mermaid Idol, Flute (G2) or Raindear (G3) = 19,000 total Power (21,000 Power with 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.
