| Counter Baiken |
カウンターバイケン (Kauntā Baiken)
Counter Baiken is a control deck type.
It was initially named as "counter" due to opposing the Soul Advantage that was running rampant around the time of Baiken's release.
- In the early turns, mana acceleration from cards such as Bronze-Arm Tribe is used. If early defense is needed, Genius Janit, of the Hidden Blade is used. This leads to destroying them with Heavy, Dragon God to destroy your opponent's creatures.
- After dealing with your opponent's threats, the game is often finished with Kiryu Jilves, Gaia's Roar.
|Baiken, Blue Dragon of the Hidden Blade||Madness, Draw Source|
|Genius Janit, of the Hidden Blade||Early defense.|
|Terror Pit||Fixed Removal.|
|Hanzou, Menacing Phantom||Shinobi, Removal|
|Emergency Typhoon||Madness and Reanimate support|
|Babelginus, Demonic Dragon||Reanimate|
While it is a defensively built control deck, unless most others, no creatures with blocker are used. The style is to defend while you can attack back with your various Shinobi.
