Using the tried-and-tested formula of using sustainable level 1 characters for field presence and finishing off the game with effect damage, this deck features several cards from the new booster that are integral to its success.

The deck has a fair amount of search power with 《Sleeping Knights》 Talken & Nori & Jun and 《Zekken》 Yuuki, two new cards introduced in the new booster. 《Zekken》 Yuuki also gains a fair amount of power when she enters the field, which helps her take down one of the opponent’s characters on the turn she is played. The cost and conditions for its effect are quite easy to fulfil, too, and is a great way for setting up for level 2. 《Sleeping Knights》 Talken & Nori & Jun ‘s search effect is also a Brainstorm type, which gives it some added utility in terms of deck control.

It can even help cards like Getting the Holy Sword, Kirito enter the field early! If you reach level 2 and have not yet refreshed your deck, the Brainstorm ability will definitely come in handy. Refreshing the deck also means more targets for its search effect, so you can potentially search for even more Getting the Holy Sword, Kirito, which will also help you dig into your deck for your game-winning level 3 combo – climax cards cannot be searched for with those effects, after all!

The deck also uses choice picks from all the previous boosters to round out its lineup. Cards like Temporary Alliance, Sinon, Angry Sinon, “Machine of Ice” Sinon and of course, Last Shot, Sinon and Phantom Bullet are just some of the cards that make up the backbone and centrepiece of this deck. SAO has quite a lot of options for deckbuilding, but those new cards fit right into this deck and complement it very well!

Sword Art Online II Vol.II will hit the shelves this weekend, so get ready to upgrade your decks! If you’re running a similar build focused on Sinon, you can try adding some of these cards in and see how it fares!

That’s the end of today’s article! Check back next week for more Weiss Schwarz related titbits and updates!
