Creative Deck Profile: Battleguard Burning War Rock, ft. BLVO Support

Ride into battle alongside the new War Rock TCG Premiere archetype!


Strategic Summary:

Unleash the fury of the mountain with the help of the new War Rock TCG World Premiere theme. In today’s profile, witness these monolithic EARTH warriors strike the opponent down in battle through a combination of battle phase effects and sheer reinforcements with the help of many search effects, tutoring, and recovery options. This theme is led by War Rock Bashileos, a Level 8 monster that can summon itself whenever an EARTH Warrior falls in battle – replacing them with a stronger threat. Today’s build also features a hefty trap lineup designed to disrupt the opponent’s monsters, in addition to a playset of Battleguard Howling to put the fear of battle into the hearts of your opponents. While the War Rock theme may struggle to get it done just with their own support, a measured dose of disruptive traps is just the elixir it needs to fight on. Finally, this strategy reaches a wrap with a Star Warrior engine, unlocking fusion summons through the use of Kaiki the Unity Star. Arise my warrior and fight with this new theme!
