There’s the top 32! The Orcust variants can be tough to define, since each Orcust Deck is built differently and incorporates multiple themes that vary by Deck. Nevertheless, here are the numbers:

  • 10 Orcust Decks
  • 9 Danger! Thunder Dragon Decks
  • 8 Salamangreat Decks
  • 5 Sky Striker Decks

There are 4 main categories of Decks in the Top 32, but individual Decks within those categories are being built in many different ways. The Orcust Decks in particular vary greatly. Some of them may use Sky Striker, Crusadia, Phantom Knight, Trickstar, and/or Danger! cards, while others forgo some of those themes.
