D-Standard Format:

Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana has abilities for the D-Standard Format. These abilities support units with Overdress such as Vairina. This card also has the ability of Persona Ride!

First Ability:

This ability sets up Overdress for Vairina. Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana superior calls a grade 0 unit from your drop zone. Trickstar is the most oblivious card to target from the drop zone. You want to superior call Trickstar to activate Vairina’s Overdress.

Therefore, this ability provides consistency for the deck. You may use Trickstar as a guardian during the early game. You may use Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana to retrieve Trickstar from the drop zone.

Second Ability:

The second ability continues the momentum from the first ability. Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana and a unit with overdress gain 10,000 until the end of the turn. Your field gains a large amount of power from this ability.

Furthermore, you will create a combo with the first ability when you superior call Trickstar from the drop zone. Then, you may activate overDress for Vairina. Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana will add 10,000 power on top of the 10,000 power from Vairina’s ability. Therefore, Vairina will have a total of 30,000 power.

Persona Ride:

The second ability fits well with the Persona Ride. Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana’s power would increase to 33,000 with power both abilities. You can make a strong push to add power to a unit with Overdress and Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana. Two units in your front row will pressure the opponent in the game’s final stages.

Premium Format:

Bushiroad designed Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana for the D-Standard Format, and this card does not fit well in the Premium format. Clans from the Dragon Empire do not have a lot of synergy with this card. It is a simple clash of styles and formats from Cardfight!! Vanguard.

Therefore, you need to build a deck for Chakrabarthi Divine Dragon, Nirvana with cards from Cardfight!! Vanguard overDress and generic G-Units. Various generic G-Units can create a unique extra deck. You can play Zeroth Dragon of Inferno, Drachma and Progenitor Dragon of Lightning Flame, Gigal.
