Default Spectral Duke Dragon [English]

The build for this deck that I plan to add to my list once EB03EN is out Internationally in under 2 weeks:

Grade 0 (17):
1x Black Dragon Whelp, Vortimer
4x Flame of Victory (Critical)
4x Silent Punisher (Critical)
4x Falcon Knight of the Azure (Draw)
4x Elixir Sommelier (Heal)

Grade 1 (15):
4x Black Dragon Vanguard, Vortimer
4x Knight of Elegant Skills, Gareth
3x Halo Shield, Mark
2x Blade Feather Valkyrie
1x War Horse, Raging Storm
1x Silver Fang Witch

Grade 2 (10):
4x Black Dragon Knight, Vortimer
2x Knight of Superior Skills, Beaumains
2x Flash Edge Valkyrie
2x Sacred Guardian Beast, Nemean Lion

Grade 3 (8):
4x Spectral Duke Dragon
2x Great Silver Wolf, Garmore
2x Gigantech Destroyer

Now, I will explain my card choices, starting at Grade 3 and going down.

Spectral Duke Dragon: The star of the deck. He's the first 11k Gold Paladins have, and I love 11k Vanguards. He also has a very pressuring Limit Break, even if costly. However, the Ride Chain essentially gives you the pluses you need to null out the negs from the cost.

Great Silver Wolf, Garmore: A great card, and always belongs in a Gold Paladin deck. Here, he's for the late game, after Spectral Duke's Limit Break has gone off. He's also useful to Ride if you miss the Ride Chain.

Gigantech Destroyer: A 12k by himself, very useful card, and it can abuse the rampant 10k Vanguards with its ability to swing for 20k.


Black Dragon Knight, Vortimer: The G2 of the Ride Chain. 4 of him is mandatory. Him being in the Soul is also what pumps SDD up to 11k.

Knight of Superior Skills, Beaumains: It's a 10k vanilla beater. Not much explaination needed.

Sacred Guardian Beast, Nemean Lion: A 10k Intercept. A couple copies of this, plus Spectral Duke's own 11k, makes for some good defense.

Flash Edge Valkyrie: I don't like this card that much, it's really only here until I can get Vivaines, which I should be able to get 2 more copies of by the summer's end.


Black Dragon Knight, Vortimer: The G1 of the Ride Chain. 4 is mandatory. The 7k boost is nice too.

Knight of Elegant Skills, Gareth: It's a 8k vanilla beater. Needed for Flash Edge, Nemean Lion, and Gigantech Destroyer to hit for magic numbers.

Halo Shield, Mark: Despite the Limit Breaks, I haven't really seen a need for 4 Perfect Guards in my testing. It might be the 11k Vanguard + 10K Intercepts. Probably.

War Horse, Raging Storm: If my deck decides to screw me over, and I mess up the Ride Chain, I can Call this guy to get Black Dragon Knight, Vortimer in my Soul and get that awesome 11k defensive Power going.

Silver Fang Witch: Generally my call of choice when I Ride Garmore over Spectral Duke. Since I neg myself with the re-ride, this turns it into a +1. Oh, how I love abusing the rampant 10k Vanguards of the English format.


I'm not going to bother explaining my Grade 0 choices in depth. I'll leave it at this: Black Dragon Whelp, Vortimer is the Ride Chain's Starter (derp), I run 8 Criticals, because the best time to set off Spectral Duke's Limit Break is after hitting a Critical, and quite frankly, I run Draws over Stands because Draws give me +1s and Stands are rather bad outside of a select few clans/builds (Nova Grapplers, Pale Moons, Invincible Overlord).

Advice? Thoughts? Suggestions pretaining to this actual deck, and not telling me to run a completely different deck? (Looking at you, StuartHayden)

I run a similar deck, albeit different (no Valkyries, no Gigantech Crusher, no Nemea Lion, 4 Marks etc).. anyways, Silver Fang Witch was horrible when I tested her, probably because I prefer those soul blasts for Charjgal.. anyways, I would suggest u try

-1 Silver Fang Witch
-4 Valkyries... I really hate them, if only the g2 had 9k :/

+1 Charjgal (to make Garmore a 21k RG ofc)
+2 Viviane (once you get them)
+2 Mark/Horse/Charjgal

There isn't really one exact way to build the Duke Dragon deck, so there isn't much to criticize.

Why the choice of two of the Grade 1 Valkyrie though? It has to boost the Grade 2 Valkyrie to get its effect off, so it's quite situational.

As I stated, the Valkyries are only in until I'm able to get Vivaine. With the Grade 1 Valkyrie, I can allow the Grade 2 Valkyrie to act as a slightly weaker Vivaine.
