Blau is a Nova Grappler sub-clan that has debuted as a ride chain in the very first set. The last two seasons have been crazy enough with developing the Beast Deities which ended up in 13th set getting two crossbreak rides for the same card and on 6th June will come a the adios set for Break Ride and Limit Break for Nova Grappler.
The Extra Boosters adds up more crossrides making the Nova Grappler clan the leading clan when comes to the number of crossrides. Now, the most charming crossride that comes in this set is Galaxy Blaukluger.
[CONT](VC):If you have a card named "Stern Blaukluger" in your soul, this unit gets [Power]+2000.
[CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)
I didn't know why is this unit charming until I started to play it. For some reason, it makes me to choose it whenever I have the mood for a fun cardfight. Also, that super mecha look. I never watched Gundam but I watched Kakumeiki Vaalvraave and for me, it would make an awesome Vaalvraave.
Now for some people the skill may be confusing. Basically, if a Blau rearguard hits the vanguard and he is standing, you can't use his skill. That means you attack with your vanguard first.

The deck offers early pressure with Morgenrot, Blaukluger, Mars Blaukluger, Stern Blaukluger and late game the pressure is offered by Galaxy Blaukluger
Now the best unit to have in the back row of the Galaxy Blaukluger is either Tough Boy which makes the sweet number 21k or Dancing Wolf which gains +3000 power when he stands making the second attack more powerfull. Clay-Doll Mechanic is an on-call unflipper (when called, it allows you to unflip one card from your damage zone. ) The skill is ghreat considering we have some heavy counterblast here. Stoic Hani is a grade 1 self-damager. We all know the pain of the limit break 4 and the self-damager is softens that pain a little bit. Besides Blau Dunkelheit there is no other Blau unit. Will this affect you?Answer: no. The front row is composed, most of the times, by grade two
and three and in this deck these two sections are composed by Blau's as
you can see..
Moving on to the grade two line-up Blaukluger + Morgenrot is an awesome combo. As a vanguard, if the attack hits, it allows you unflip one card from your damage zone and with Morgenrot online, well, a free +1 of your choice. Now, Mars Blaukluger is one of the reasons why people guard the vanguard attack. By counterblasting one, you can stand him if the Blau vanguard hits the your opponents vanguard. Well, if you think I run this because of his skill, well, you are so wrong. I run it because it has "Blau" in it's name people. The skill is good for an early rush or for pushing
the damage but that if you can afford it but no more. Now. moving on to the grade three line-up.
The crossride version of the deck is much better than the break ride one. First of all, Galaxy Blaukluger and Mond Blaukluger don't synergize with each other considering the Galaxy and Mond skill. Second, the crossride defence is very usefull against decks which usually, rearguard attacks tend to be 21k. This messes up your opponent strategy quite a bit and more if their row is no more than 17k.
