Trigger Sets

Rank Fight Trigger Set

   - Critical Trigger (x0), Draw Trigger (x9), Stand Trigger (x0), and Heal Trigger (x4)
   - Critical Trigger (x0), Draw Trigger (x5~x7), Stand Trigger (x2~x4), and Heal Trigger (x4)
   - Refer to the build above (screenshot) for example Triggers Set for specific cards. Reduce and balance Draw Triggers if you are getting "Deck Outs".

   - Critical Triggers are fine but it might disrupt your plans.

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.

Neo Nectar Battle Strategies

Mulligan (Starting Cards)

   - Any Grade 1 Card (G1) = Keep x1 as Grade 1 ride, to avoid riding Blade Seed Squire (G1) if you have.
   - Blade Seed Squire (G1) = Keep x1, best if you have another Grade 1 card.
   - Any Grade 2 Card (G2) = Keep x1 except Gene (G2) as Grade 2 ride, to avoid riding Gene (G2).
   - Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3) = Keep x1, to ensure a Grade 3 ride.

   - Any Grade 3 Card (G3) = Keep x1 except Gene (G3), if you don't have Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3), and to avoid riding Gene (G3).
   - Maiden of Blossom Rain (G1) = Keep at least x1.

Basic Battle Strategies

   - This deck build will focus on defense, deck thinning, using skills that would increase your field presence, and recycling Triggers back to deck.
Blade Seed Squire G1Gene G2Gene G3
   - Start early on by using Blade Seed Squire (G1), use as rear guard so get another Grade 1 unit to ride. Move your FV to the right/left column to help boost your Blade Seed Squire (G1), unless your opponent can snipe it.

   - Land his attack to the Vanguard to activate skill. Call Knight of Verdure, Gene (G2) to the back row to save him for next turn. Doing this method would allow you to use a Grade 1 unit to front and still save it from enemy attacks!

  - Use Knight of Verdure, Gene (G2) and land his attack to switch in Knight of Harvest, Gene (G3), place to the back row to save him for next turn. You'll lose an Intercept card but you'll be able to gain 2 next turn by doing the same method with Knight of Harvest, Gene (G3).
   - Save those 2 Knight of Verdure, Gene (G2) for next turn, or use 1 or both to Intercept.
   - NOTE: Plan before activating their skills, also track these cards to know how many cards you have left.

   - If Knight of Verdure, Gene (G2) and/or Knight of Harvest, Gene (G3) went to your Drop Zone, this is the best time to use your FV's skill, to put them back to your deck.
   - Example: If you have Gene (G3) in play but you don't have Gene (G2) in your deck, use FV to return Gene (G2) cards. Use any card that can shuffle your deck like Gene cards or Spiritual Tree Sage, Irminsul (G2) if you placed your Triggers back.

   - Ride your main Vanguard Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3). If you don't have her, ride any viable sub Vanguard you have except Gene (G3) if possible.
   - Use Maiden of Trailing Rose's (G3) Persona Blast when you are out of Intercept cards, to fill the up field, or when your opponent got 4 Damage to setup more attacks and pop some Sentinel Cards (PG).

Counter Blasts

Maiden of Trailing Rose G3Maiden of Rainbow Wood G2
   - Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3) = When attack hits a Vanguard, CB1 and Persona Blast to look at 5 cards from the top of your deck, and call 2 cards from among them.
   - Maiden of Rainbow Wood (G2) CB2 to draw a card, when attack hits.

   - Avatar of the Plains, Behemoth (G3) = CB2 to stand 1 rear guard, when attack hits a Vanguard. Optional, use only if needed, to land another Damage, to clear more rear guards, or to pop a Sentinel Card (PG) when used to land 5th Damage.
   - NOTE: Also consider other card effects that requires Counter Blasts if needed.

How To Build 21,000+ Power Columns

Vanguard + Booster

   - Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3) ) = 11,000 base Power Vanguard.
   - Maiden of Trailing Rose (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).

Rear Guards + Booster

   - Corolla Dragon (G1) = 8,000 Power Booster.
   - Corolla Dragon (G1) + Any Rear Guard with 9,000~10,000 Power = 17,000~18,000 total Power (22,000~23,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).

   - Corolla Dragon  (G1) + Hey Yo Pineapple (G2) = 19,000 total Power (24,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).
   - Corolla Dragon  (G1) + Frontline Valkyrie, Laurel (G3) = 20,000 total Power (25,000 Power with +5,000 "Trigger Check" buff).

   - Ahkbara (G2) or Exploding Tomato (G3) = Buff a unit's Power (+3000 until the end of turn) after landing a hit to the Vanguard. Buff columns listed above or these example columns:
   - Corolla Dragon (G1) + Any Rear Guard with 10,000 Power = 18,000 total Power (21,000 Power with buff).
   - Corolla Dragon (G1) + Hey Yo Pineapple (G2) = 19,000 total Power (22,000 Power with buff).
   - Corolla Dragon (G1) + Maiden of Trailing Rose (G3) = 19,000 total Power (22,000 Power with buff).
   - Corolla Dragon  (G1) + Laurel (G3) = 20,000 total Power (23,000 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.
