War Deity, Asura Kaiser

Okay, there we go. Asura G4's ACT skill is once per turn: shuffle a Grade 3 in the drop zone back to the deck, then for the whole turn, every time you Drive Check a Grade 3, 4 of your rear-guards stand...as long as the heart's an Asura.

...Not a fan. Sure standing 4 things for no CB cost is a bit busted, but it hasn't gotten the level of support Daikaiser got, and Daikaiser seems like the more reliable finisher compared to another 2 attacks for normal columns, unless you have Sazanda or something. Or the Samurai cards. Nonetheless, he's functional for what he is and in the event of failure there's Victoplasma or Bustard instead if you don't fancy chance.

Nova Grappler Oldguard love. Standing a whole board is nice...you just need a whole board. Meaning draw triggers are a necessity for the deck. Asura Kaiser, outside of Extreme Fight, does not have a unit that counts as a Grade 3 when checked, so that hurts the deck comp when it comes to having shield value in hand. (Raindear of all things got that level of probability fixing. Bushroad, pls help.) Of course, recycling Grade 3s back in the deck with War Deity and running 11-13 Grade 3s makes your probability high for restanding, and hurts any deck that doesn't lock or retire.

Beast Deities, in my opinion, is currently the best Oldguard Nova deck though. Compared to that subclan, Asura Kaiser only has one leg up on it: Asura Kaiser has a Grade 2 and Grade 1 that gain 3k for every unit that restands. Whereas Beast Deity restands with more certainty, Asura Kaiser can throw up bigger numbers, because naturally the aforementioned G2 and G1 stack their 3k buffs.

Your early game is fairly decent, just build your deck as if it was still 2013. Death Army Guy, Death Army Lady, and Brutal Jack come to mind. Might as well run Brutal Jack, since War Deity himself doesn't have any counterblast requirements. 

If you haven't moved on to Victor yet, you might as well toy around with this. But of course, you would have if you're serious about Novas.
