I have experience playing these decks with my friends at locals. Then, I will reveal my reasons for the best trial deck.

- Clan: Oracle Think Tank
- Release Date: February 8, 2019
One of my favorite decks was built with V Trial Deck 05: Misaki Tokura, and this trial deck features Oracle Think Tank. Oracle Think Tank is a great clan for veterans. The deck manipulates the top cards of the deck, and you increase your chances of checking triggers. Powerful cards in the deck draw additional cards to strengthen your defense.
Furthermore, you can upgrade V Trial Deck 05: Misaki Tokura. I have upgraded my box of V Trial Deck 05: Misaki Tokura to a nearly pure Magus deck. The main archetype from the trial deck, Magus has many cards from booster sets such as V Booster Set 03: Miyaji Academy Cardfight Club.
I recommend V Trial Deck 05: Misaki Tokura to veterans and players, who enjoy the strategy of manipulating their decks. You need good skills to master this deck. The cards have simple abilities, but you must make wise decisions to control the flow of a match.
