Craniamon - The Ultimate Blocker Shield
Last night I encountered a player that played a Craniamon deck that triggered me to write this engine, his deck totally destroyed my black Cresgarurumon strategy, but weak over the green bee sting deck. The [BT3-075] Craniamon is a super rare rarity card that introduced in BT3 Union Impact, his main effect is "In both player's turn: All of your digimon with Blocker cannot be destroyed by your opponent card effects". This effect causes Gaia Force or Trump Sword or [BT1-023] Skullgreymon become useless againts any blocker on the field. The only way to kill Craniamon is to attack him with a digimon that has more than 12K DP when the Craniamon is resting.
Build a deck around Craniamon
Craniamon is a LV6 with 13 costs when "played" or 4 costs to digivolve, this card is normally needed to play early in the game in order to take advantage of its effect. The Craniamon deck that my friend played, it included all LV6 Blocker accompanied Legend-Arms Ragnaloard with his LV6 companions.
Hard-play to put a LV5 or LV6 blocker costs you a lot of memories, then digivolve to Ragnaloard using another LV6 [BT3-016] Durandamon or [BT3-072] Bryweludramon for free.
[BT3-095] Joe Kido (2 costs) – if you have a digimon with blocker, get +1 memory (needless to say the reason why we need it).
Avoid Rookie Rush from opponent
To play this strategy, surely you will give opponent advantage to build Rookie rush since they will have a lot of memories to play. Putting around 3 or 4 cards of [BT2-018] Volcanicdramon just in case.
As mentioned from beginning, this play style will be weak against the Green deck (Green can do thousand things with 10 memories). It is also risky and unstable against Purple as well, I think (Purple can do vengeance/retaliation), the Ragnaloard can reboot but Craniamon itself has no reboot during opponent turn. So if you have any deck reference or strategy to play with Craniamon, please do share us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
