How do you win?
The way I win with my deck varies on what cards get flipped into play and I build off of that momentum. The main goal for my deck was to utilize Remilia's Rebirth Combo, [AUTO](Member)[ReCombo “Divine Art “Vampire Illusion”“]:When this character supports an , the supported character gets +2/±0 until end of that attack. In addition, look at three cards from the top of your deck, put a card from among them into your hand, and put the rest into the waiting room. This allows me to dig for blockers, Cancel sparks, and Rebirths to chain combo for the next turn.
Coupled with that, I also rely on Patchouli Knowledge's ability to salvage blockers or cancels while on the offensive. Her effect is on retire, if I have 7 unique cards in waiting room, I may choose a character card from it and add it to hand. This was very useful in 2 of my games, I salvaged a cancel during my attack phase and used them to negate key sparks that would've stopped my attacks from going through! I built my deck with a lot of high defense cards so I can avoid taking too much damage early game, namely with the cost 9 Flandre.
She's 7/9 and if I flip her into entry early it's pretty hard for the opponent to answer her without a partner attack being available. Lastly, the Sakuya rebirth combo is how I aim to close the game. Her effect is: [AUTO](Entry)[ReCombo “Illusion World “The World”“][True Power Level 5 ][1/Turn]:When this character attacks, your opponent cannot use his or her character’s [Spark], [Cancel], [Blocker], and [AUTO] until end of that attack.
This effect was very relevant in the Azur lane match up to shut down their auto ability to block with any Royal Navy in their hand.It Effectively is a partner attack if your attack is high enough to retire!
