Kagerou style: Attack Pattern

This is the second segment of Kagerou Style, and I'll be talking about strategies to deal heavy blows using Kagerou cards.

Meeting the 20000 baseline
As noticeable as it seems, each of these cards can pump their attack to at least 12000, making them + Bahr a baseline of at least 20000. And with the addition of Iron tail dragon, You have at least 8 rear guards meeting the 8000 requirement for the setup. This will make opponents with 10000 vanguard drop at least 20000 worth of guard (at least 2 cards) to fully block the attack. This will also prompt the opponent to use zero guards (Isolde, Barri, Chocolat, Twin Blader), still wasting 2 cards for the attack.

Hitting the back-row
Tejas is one of the reasons why Kagerou is so versatile in the meta right now. I'd even advise Nova Grappler players to play him cos he is just that good. The ability to hit the back row hits decks that relies on specific cards (Paladin, Spike Brother) pretty hard. and with 8 stand triggers now available for Kagerou, Tejas now has more options upon standing. And with a specific support, Tejas is able to meet the baseline of 16000 to hit vanguards.

With the ability to lock the intercept units from the opponent's hand, the opponent is limited to guarding with his hand. With cards to retire the rear guard supporting the Vanguard, it even piles up more pressure for the opponent, a defensive play. With High-Speed Blackie (has seen splashability in lots of decks), it is certain that the player has met the 20000 baseline to punch the opponent to death.

Assuming (Brocade + >6000 = >16000) , the opponent has to drop a total of 15000 (2 cards) guard to block the attack. With HIgh Speed Blackie(9000+>6000+5000= >20000), he has to drop another 15000 to block the attack. That is a total of 4 cards, not accounting triggers and the third rear guard. And maining at least 6 stand triggers screams "Final Turn" for the opponent.
