1. Deck Overview

-a. Deck goals

A Leader-centric archetype, {SD16-01 SS3 Bardock, Reborn From Darkness} relies heavily on its powerful attacks. [Critical] provides early damage and keeps your opponent’s Life total and hand size manageable at all times. Quickly awaken, utilize your [Burst] keyword to generate advantage, and use your [Spirit Boost] skills to land the finishing blow!

-b. Early game

On the first turn that you’re able to attack, try using your Leader ability to place 3 cards in the Drop Area – just enough to activate {BT4-102 Dimension Support Trunks}! The combination of your Leader’s attack, the attack of your skill-less Battle Card now armed with [Critical] and {Dimension Support Trunks} will provide significant early game momentum. If you [Burst] a card like {SD16-02 Dark Masked King, Spirit Resonance}, the +2 Marker skill will place another card in the Drop Area and still allow you to resolve {Dimension Support Trunks} with ease.

-c. Mid game

The variety of Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green cards allow for this deck to easily resolve {SD16-03 Dark Broly, Spirit Boost Beserker}’s [Activate:Main] skill to continue the offensive onslaught. At the same time, this enables the second [Auto] skill on your Leader to generate an additional attack. Once the opponent has a low Life total, play {BT14-129 SS4 Gogeta, Thwarting the Dark Empire} to remove the last of their threats and claim victory! To play SS4 Gogeta, you’ll need to manage your {BT11-128 SS Son Goku, Time Patrol Elite} and {Time Agent Vegeta} properly so both cards are in the Drop Area amid turns you have 4 or more Energy.

-d. Defensive cards:

{BT15-155 Pan, Time Patrol Maiden} is Pan: Xeno’s debut into DBSCG as one of the strongest defensive Secret Rares available! Use Battle Cards like {SD14-05 Supreme Kai of Time, Guardian of Spacetime} will generate Battle Cards into your field quickly. Once there are 4 or more Battle Cards total between both player’s Battle Areas, you can use the [Counter: Attack] skill of Pan: Xeno to play it without an energy cost. Imagine how surprised your opponent will be when this card stops their Secret Rare from attacking – and then gaining control of it during your next turn!

Once you’ve used cards like {Supreme Kai of Time, Guardian of Spacetime} to have enough Battle Cards to play Pan:Xeno, try using the card during the Combo Step to generate value defensively before retrieving it with {BT5-115 Power Burst}. For such an offensive deck, you have a lot of ways to manage your opponent’s attacks.

2. Synergistic picks

Originally found in Starter Deck 14 -Saiyan Worker-, {SD14-01 Vegeks, the Unsung Fusion Hero isn’t the only Leader Card capable of harnessing the power of the Time Agents! {SD14-03 Time Agent Trunks} will help you Awaken through its [Auto] ability, and [Blocker] will help you stay in the game. {Time Agent Vegeta} will allow you to deal some additional attacks as you progress. Once you’ve gotten to turn 4 or later, try to Combo {Time Agent Vegeta} into the Drop Area to help you easily play {SS4 Gogeta, Thwarting the Dark Empire}!
