I was excited when Bushiroad announced V-Trial Deck 12: Ahsha. Neo Nectar was one of my favorite clans to play from Cardfight!! Vanguard G. I decided to build a casual deck with Ahsha and Neo Nectar for the standard format. I also wanted to create an easy deck for new players.
Neo Nectar is one of the easiest clans to master in the standard format. The purpose of this particular deck is a starting point for new players and a simple deck for casual players. All of the cards have synergy with each other for consistency.
|Grade 0||Grade 1||Grade 2||Grade 3|
|Chestnut Bullet x4||Blowball Squire x3||Blossoming Maiden, Cela x4||Maiden of Trailing Rose x4|
|Fairy Light Dragon x4||Budding Maiden Diane x4||Osmanthus Maiden, Anelma x4||Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha x4|
|Maiden of Blossom Rain x4||Maiden of Blue Lace x2||Sunlight Garden's Guide x4|
|Night Queen Musketeer, Daniel x4||Maiden of Sweet Berry x4|
|Spring-Heralding Maiden, Ozu x1|
Neo Nectar has a simple and effective strategy. The deck’s goal is creating offense from Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token and Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha. The supporting cast of rear-guards generate plant tokens to retire to place an Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token on the field!
Furthermore, plant tokens conserve cards in my hand. They boost my units in the front row. I do not need to call many grade one units for offense. I can keep a few grade one units in my hand for defense.
The deck’s key card is Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha. The deck’s strategy is creating a strong column for the vanguard and Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token. The majority of the deck’s power come from those two units on the field.
Maiden of Trailing Rose is the backup vanguard in this deck, and she is also a useful rear-guard. She creates tokens and adds 5,000 power to three Planet Tokens. Maiden of Trailing Rose adds a total of 15,000 power to the field when she is the vanguard.
Unleash The Plant Tokens:
Efficiency and consistency is the key to every deck’s success. All of my grade 2 units superior call Planet Tokens to the field. I can consistently activate Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha’s ability to superior call an Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token.
Blossoming Maiden, Cela is one of the key rear-guards in the deck. She provides consistency and resources. Her ability to create Planet Tokens is an ACT, and I may use her ability once per turn. She gains 5,000 during my turn. Furthermore, my opponent cannot retire her if I have a rear-guard with the same name as my vanguard.
My budget deck for Neo Nectar requires a lot of counter blasts. I need to conserve resources, and play cards with free abilities. Blowball Squire and Sunlight Garden’s Guide have the ability to superior call Plant tokens without a cost. I can gain two Plant Tokens from those units. I also save my counter blasts and cards in my soul for Ahsha and my other units.
I am playing four Draw Triggers, four Heal Triggers, and eight Critical Triggers. I prefer this particular lineup for most of my decks. The deck includes Maiden of Blossom Rain for its perfect guard.
Many cards in the deck have synergy. Many cards provide Plant Tokens to fuel Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha’s ability. I can consistently retire Plant Tokens to superior call a Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token.
- Lack of Power
My budget Neo Nectar deck’s weakness is the lack of power. Most attacks do not swing large numbers. The Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token is an ineffective unit with very little pressure if Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha’s power remain 13,000. The additional critical from Force II is not a threat when the opponent only needs a single card to block an attack.
Neo Nectar in Action!
I have tested my deck with my friends from the local card shop. The above video is a demonstration of Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha in action. I chose Imaginary Gift: Force II for my marker in the game. It forced pressure on opponent, due to its massive damage. I gave Imaginary Gift: Force II to Ranunculus Flower Maiden, Ahsha, and Ahsha’s Flower Fairy Token also gained the benefit of the additional critical to deliver two damage!
All in all, I enjoy playing my Neo Nectar budget deck. I recommend the deck to new players with interest in Cardfight!! Vanguard. Most of the units are inexpensive cards. The team of cards is not the strongest deck, but I enjoy playing it for casual games. Consistency is the key for every budget or casual deck. I need to be able to consistently activate combos and abilities.
