Gold Paladin Battle Strategies

   - Blond Ezel (G3) = Keep x1 to ensure a Grade 3 Vanguard, unless you have the required cards above.

   - Halo Shield, Mark (G1) = Keep x1, or x0 if you are aiming to activate your FV's skill.

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!
Crimson Lion Cub, Kyrph FVKnight of Elegant Skills, Gareth G1Knight of Superior Skills, Beaumains G2
   - Crimson Lion Cub, Kyrph (FV) = If your Vanguard is Beaumains (G2), put this unit and a Gareth (G1) into your Soul, to ride Blond Ezel (G3) from your deck, and draw a card.
   - Try to do a Superior Ride early on by using your FV's skill, follow the Mulligan suggestions above to increase your chances. Be careful when dealing with decks that can retire your FV, deny them Damage if needed (if you have the required cards in hand).

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". Works great with Stand Triggers, to try and attack more than 3 times in 1 turn.

   - (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 White Hare in the Moon's Shadow, Pellinore (G3)

White Hare in the Moon's Shadow, Pellinore G3
   - Possible alternative sub Vanguard, also used as a rear guard with 11,000 base Power.

   - (VC): LB4 When this unit attacks, put 1 of your rear guards to the bottom of your deck to have 2 of your units get +5,000 Power until end of turn.
   - Useful if you don't have any CBs left to use during the later part of the battle. Setup 3 attacks then use his skill to help you break through their Sentinel Cards (PG).
   - TIP: You can place Trigger cards then use this skill to return it back to your deck (use Ezel (G3) to shuffle your deck if needed).

   - (RC): When this unit is placed from deck to a rear guard circle, if your opponent's Vanguard is Grade 2 or greater, put this unit on Vanguard circle as stand (gets +5,000 Power and Critical +1 until end of turn).
   - Only use this skill if needed, depending on the situation.
