I was surprised when I pulled Immortal Holy Sword, Fides. I quickly added Fides to my Altmile deck. He is one of the rarest cards from Divine Dragon Apocrypha. He is a Generation Rare, and a Royal Paladin with the brave ability. Fides is the legendary holy sword. It is the only weapon able to harm the god of destruction, Gyze. Gyze’s apostle Valeos thought he destroyed the blade. A person can try to destroy it, but Fides will return from the hearts of righteous men. Shion used his courage and determination to revive Fides into the Immortal Holy Sword, Fides!

Immortal Holy Sword, Fides’s first skill forces your opponent to play at least two cards to block attacks from units with the Brave ability, and the attack will hit the opponent’s vanguard if he or she only has one guardian. This skill can quickly drain your opponent’s hand. He or she will use more cards than normal to guard against your attacks. He or she is creating huge shields to survive the game. Your deck needs to only have Royal Paladins with the brave ability. Your deck will be consistent and you are always forcing your opponent to over-guard.

  • Higher Deity Knight, Altmile

Immortal Holy Sword, Fides’s second skill is Generation Break 4, and the skill superior calls three cards from the deck when Fides attacks your opponent. You will gain two additional attacks after Immortal Holy Sword, Fides attacks your opponent’s vanguard, and one card will be a booster for more power. Those are two more attacks that can force your opponent to guard with at least two cards if he or she is trying to stay in the game. Higher Deity Knight, Altmile is one of the best cards to superior call from this skill. Higher Deity Knight, Altmile’s Generation Break can be used as a vanguard or rear-guard. Higher Deity Knight, Altmile gains 5,000 power and deals two damage when he attacks.

Finally, your heart card needs to have Altmile in its name. I recommend Higher Deity Knight, Altmile and for your deck Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile. Both of these versions of Altmile have the brave ability, and their skills are better than the original Altmile’s skills. Your deck can consistently use the brave ability with its other cards. Knight of Heavenly Decree, Altmile’s skills call units from your hand and give 4,000 power to a card. You are decreasing your hand’s size in exchange for power and activating brave.

Overall, Immortal Holy Sword, Fides is a great card for finishing games. He has elevated Brave to being a very consistent and good deck. He brings out the Royal Paladins’ under Brave fullest potential. His skill of forcing your opponent to guard with extra cards has intense pressure. The average player is unable to withstand an onslaught of attacks with high power and critical damage. Immortal Holy Sword, Fides is one of the best cards from the last set from Cardfight!! Vanguard G. If you play a deck with Altmile, then be sure to get a set of Immortal Holy Sword, Fides.
