Basic Battle Strategies

   - You aim for this build is to call units from hand and deck to increase your field presence, column's Power, defense, and trigger chance!

   - Use Kron's (FV) skill to search Blond Ezel (G3) or Chromejailer Dragon (G3) depending on your preference and the situation, recover the CB used asap with Mage of Calamity, Tripp (G2) or Heal Triggers.
   - Switch between Blond Ezel (G3), Chromejailer Dragon (G3), or Platina Ezel (G3) depending on the situation like number of Damage (you and your opponent currently have) and available Counter Blasts.

How To Use Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel (G3)

Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel G3
   - Your main Vanguard, can also be used as rear guard with 11,000 base Power.
   - (VC): During your turn, this unit gets +1,000 Power for each of your rear guards. Can reach 15,000 Power with 4 rear guards for example, so you just need a 6,000~8,000 Booster to reach 21,000~23,000 Power.

   - (VC): LB4 (when you have 4 or more Damage in your Damage Zone), CB1 to look at 4 cards from the top of your deck, and call a card from among them. Increase this unit's Power by the original Power of the unit called with this effect until end of turn.
   - This skill can easily overcome defensive Triggers, giving you higher chance to deal 2 or 3 Damage for that turn.

   - TIP: If possible, choose non-Trigger cards to thin out your deck and increase your Trigger Chance! Go for Grade 2 cards like Blaster Blade Spirit (G2) or Blaster Dark Spirit (G2) to also help you retire 1 of your opponent's Intercepts cards!

   - In case of a missride, ride any of your sub Vanguards for now.

How To Use Blazing Lion, Platina Ezel (G3)

Blazing Lion, Platina Ezel (G3)
   - (VC): LB5 (1/Turn), CB1 and until end of turn, all of your rear-guards get +5,000 Power, and this unit gets Critical +1 until end of turn.
   - Great finisher (when opponent's Damage is 4 or 5, and you only have 1 CB left), just make sure that you have Boosters in play and cards in hand to use as front row rear-guards to easily overcome "defensive Triggers".

   - (VC): Cross Ride If Blond Ezel (G3) is in your Soul, this unit gets +2,000 Power.
   - (VC): If this unit is Cross Riding, its LB5 becomes LB4.
   - A 13,000 base Power Vanguard would force your opponent to adjust their combos to 13k/18k/23k.

How to Use Conviction Dragon, Chromejailer Dragon (G3)

Conviction Dragon, Chromejailer Dragon (G3)
   - (VC): Persona Blast (discard a Conviction Dragon, Chromejailer Dragon (G3) from your hand) to look at 4 cards from the top of your deck, and call 2 cards.

   - Can be used early on as your sub Vanguard, before riding Blond Ezel (G3). Also a nice backup skill if you don't have any CB left available to use for your "Ezel" cards during the later part of the battle.
   - Use Sagramore (G1) to filter cards and try to get copies, also use Kron's (FV) skill if you like then recover the CB used asap.

   - TIP: If possible, choose non-Trigger cards to thin out your deck and increase your Trigger Chance! Go for Grade 2 cards like Blaster Dark Spirit (G2) to also help you retire 1 of your opponent's Intercepts cards!

   - (VC): LB4 (1/Turn) Retire 2 of your rear-guards to get +10,000 Power/Critical+1 until end of turn.
   - Also use Persona Blasts to pay the cost of it's Limit Break skill if needed.
