All Possible Pure Dragon Deck Combinations & Strategy Guide
#1
While looking at the new playstyle and battles in version 3.1, i realised that Madhead is trying to make Dragons an almost unavoidable key role for battles in the future so what i am going to do is that i will provide all the insights and strategies for dragons.

I will begin with the most basic things to the advanced stuffs, so please be patient while reading thank you.



Part 1: Introduction Of The Types Of Dragons
---------------------------------------------

1. Defensive Dragons (DD)

Teamcost: 9

Description:

Most basic of all dragons and easily obtainable, they are especially useful in defensive decks.
In 3.1 version, holding a starter Dragon Spiritor card (any type)+ Dark Golem + farming another 4 more DDs wil ensure that you can clear even 6th seal easily (Only problem will be Nidhogg and Michael Lucifer battle)


Abilities:

Leader skill: For each type of elemental dragon will have a different form of -50% element type for defence
e.g. Lightigon -50% light damage from enemies.


Active Skill: x1000% direct damage on all enemies, element damage dependant on dragon used
e.g. Phantomsaur x 1000% direct dark damage on all enemies.


Hidden Team Skill:

United We Stand
x 130% attack stats for 3 different element types of DDs on the team
x140% attack stats for 4 different element types of DDs on the team
x 150% attack stats for 5 different element types of DDs on the team


Method Of Obtaining:

Friend Point Seal - Yes
Diamond Seal - Yes
Normal Stage Farming - Yes
Special Stage Battle Farming - Yes

=================================================================

2. Etheral Dragons (ED)

Teamcost: 10

Description:

Most crucial or core dragons meant for converting runes for damage bursts or healing, also the most important dragons meant for Nidhogg and Court of Virgo battles.

They are also crucial for Midnight Joker type battles (using both Etheral light + dark dragon's active at the same time will kill the boss instantly)

In some scenarios they are a must to be used as leaders.


Abilities:

Leader Skill: x 200% damage to each dragon on your team and + 150 recovery to each dragon on the team.


Active Skill: Fire, Earth, Water ED converts elemental runes to hearts. Light & Dark direct attack of 15,000 regardless of defence, element damage type based on either Light or Dark respectively.


Hidden Team Skill:

1. Will To Live -
The lower the hp the higher the attack with 3 different type of ED (max x150%)
The lower the hp the higher the attack with 4 different type of ED (max x 170%)
The lower the hp the higher the attack with 5 different type of ED (max x 200%)

Method Of Obtaining:

Friend Point Seal - No
Diamond Seal - Yes
Normal Stage Farming - No
Special Stage Farming - No

=================================================================

3. Metallic Dragons (MD)

Teamcost: 20

Description:

Dragon type with the highest attack and hp stat (Aside from Nidhogg), extremely high teamcost and can be very strong if utilized the correct way. However, they are not so user friendly.


Abilities:

Leader Skill: 30% chance to x 600% damage, when hp is lower than 10% the chance increases to 50% x 600% damage (the 600% for dual Metallic Dragon stacks, but the 50% does not stack for dual Metallic Dragon)


Active skill: x 1500% damage direct attack on all enemies, element dependant on type of Metallic Dragon
E.g. Terrametallic Dragon x 1500% direct earth damage on all enemies


Hidden Team Skill:

N/A


Method Of Obtaining:

=================================================================

Dragon Spiritor (DS)

Teamcost: 10

Description:

New dragons in 3.1 that gives the best leader skills of dragon decks, they are best when used as leaders, high in stats and ALL of their actives are extremely useful.


Abilities:

Leader Skill:

Fire & Dark DS - x 150% damage to all dragons, when dissolving 6 runestones of particular element will x 300% to attack instead
(Excluding heartrunes)

Water & Earth DS - x 200% damage to all dragons, leech 4% of hp according to damage dealt on enemy, max recovery each turn up to 50% of max hp.
E.g.
Max hp - 20,000 hp
Current hp - 5000 hp
Recover maximum - 10,000 hp
Hp after recovery - 15,000 hp
(4% can be stack with dual Water/Earth DS up to 8%, but not the 50%)

Light DS- When dissolving 6 runestones of particular element will x 300% to attack instead
(Including heartrunes!! Gluttonous Slime anyone? XD)


Active Skill:

Water DS - For 2 turns, change all Dragon cards's damage to the highest Dragon card damage of the deck.
E.g. Deck highest damage is Hydrometellic Dragon (1429), all other dragons in deck damage changed to 1429 for 2 turns.

Earth DS - For 1 turn, increases defence against all damage according to how many Dragons you have on deck (10% for each dragon)

Fire & Light DS- Converts heart runestones into their respective element runestones.

Dark DS - Steals all dragon's attack on the deck and convert into his own attack upon activation, can be deactivated manually again or auto deactivate upon death.
(Basically you just need to use dark runestones to be able to deal all the damage of other dragons on the deck, best used with Rainbow dragon deck + a Gargoyle Golem)

Part 2: Types Of Dragon Deck Leader Skill Combinations
--------------------------------------------------------

Before i begin, i would like to point out that just like any other races there are a total of 3 types of focus on building a dragon deck. They are -

1. Rainbow Dragon Deck (Mixed elements)
2. Mono Dragon Deck (Only 1 element)
3. Fusion Dragon Deck (Only 2 elements)

=================================================================
1. -75% Damage Type

Setup: Any form of team with DD set as leader + ally of the same element will have 75% damage reduction of the particular element.

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow, Fusion, Mono

Comments: Meant for beginners who does not have enough hp to tank enemies yet, it can be used max up to 4th seal only as all other enemies after that will always have different elements in the mix.

=================================================================
2. Damage x 400% + 300 Recovery Type

Setup: Any dragon deck that sets ED as both leader + ally will have x 400% attack and + 300 recovery to each dragon.

Deck Compatibility: Fusion, Rainbow

Comments: Most important setup for Nidhogg type battles that requires extremely high recovery.
This type of team can clear up to 6th seal stages, only drawback is when fighting Grand Master, Extra, Soul Master stages and Michael Lucifer fight you will never win with it.
=================================================================
3. Critical Damage x 3600% Type

Setup: Any form of team with MD set as both leader + ally will have 30% chance to critical damage x 600% and 15% chance x 3600% critical damage.

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow, Fusion, Mono

Comments: Even though the damage is insane but the risk is too high to use this setup, this is more of a deck that relies on pure luck and chance rather than skill.
=================================================================
4. Damage x 900% Type

Setup:
a) Dark DS + Fire DS
b) Light DS + Dark DS
c) Dark DS + Dark DS
d) Fire DS+ Fire DS

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow, Fusion, Mono

Comments: Only the above 4 setups will have a chance of good synergy due to their active ability so dont even try on doing other types of x 900% setups aside from this 4.

Also, although this team has a high damage and burst but the defence is really in a bad shape, least to say it cant even heal at all.
=================================================================
5. Damage x 600% & Recovery 4% Of Each Attack Type

Setup:
a) Water DS + Fire DS
b) Earth DS + Fire DS
c) Water DS + Dark DS
d) Earth DS + Dark DS

Deck Compatibility: Fusion, Rainbow

Comments: Only the above 4 setups will work due to the synergy of active abilities of dragons, so dont even try other forms of x 600% + 4% setups aside from those 4 that i included. (unless you have Light DS Leader & Dark DS is in your deck that is used as follower)

This setup is the most balanced play of all dragons types and should be one of the best at the moment, it can display both extremely high damage, has a very good defence and heal for a decently good amount.
=================================================================
6. Damage x 400% & 8% Recovery From Attack Type

Setup:
a) Water DS + Water DS
b) Earth DS + Earth DS
c) Water DS + Earth DS

Deck Compatibility: Fusion, Rainbow, Mono

Comments: This deck type gives a better defence at the sacrifice of a lower attack. However for mono deck of this type will give extremely good chance of burst damage, so it does not matter as much about damage if you are using Mono deck.
=================================================================
7. Damage x 400%, Recovery + 150 & 4% Recovery From Attack Type

Setup: Any ED + Water or Earth DS

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow, Fusion, Mono

Comments: This type works slightly better than Type 2 and 6 in certain scenarios and can be beneficial to those who doesnt have DS in their deck.
=================================================================
8. Damage x 625% Type

Setup: GSOA + GSOA

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow, Fusion

Comments: Even though the damage is decent but this is still considered a weak deck due to the extremely low defence and unable to recover hp at all, if going for damage type i would choose any other risky high damage type any time of the day.

This is more meant for players who doesnt have a single ED, MD or DS card.
=================================================================
9. Damage x 200%, 4% Recovery From Attack & - 50% Damage Type

Setup: Earth DS + DD (Element dependent on the type of stage)

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow

Comments: This type of deck is more meant for defensive battles that has only specific element type of enemy in the battle, when Earth DS's active is casted the ability stacks with DD's leader skill.

This team has high defence + decent recovery.
=================================================================
10. Damage x 200% + 150 Recovery, - 50% Damage Type

Setup: Water/Earth/Fire ED + DD (Element dependent on type of stage)

Deck Compatibility: Rainbow

Comments: Same as type 9, just that it is more relient on heart runestones rather than damage. This team will require all converter type ED in the deck.

It is confirmed, but one thing unconfirmed is if u actually had to place DS as leader/ally or it has to be fully evolved.

The other thing to take note is that the DS and ED MUST be same element

So lets say my current team build is DSfire, DSlight EDfire, ED light, ED earth + partner DSearth. All of the EDs would have 1.3 attack bonus respectively?

Dark DS (leader)
Gargoyle Golem
Dark ED
Earth ED
Fire ED
+
Light DS (ally)

Method:

Earth ED convert water to heart runes
l
Fire ED convert earth to heart runes
l
Light DS converts heart runes to light runes
l
Gargoyle Golem converts light runes to dark runes

= Converts light + water + earth + heart runes into dark runes (best used with Dark DS's active skill on)

See how insane it is yet?
