Cosmic Majesty

Hello everyon. I know thta I didn't post in some while but I will make it up to you very soon. I had some personal issues to deal with that took more time than expected.
 Today I am comign with a new deck profile fo Genesis (what can I say, I am man. :p). Genesis clan has started out in BT10 and got constant support since then. Genesis started to get more attentuion when the first two Regalia  units hit the stage: Regalia of Wisdom, Angelica and it's crossride, Omniscience Regalia, Minerva. These two beauties made a change of scenery in the tier lists as they are one of the few female units within those lists. And to make sure Genesis clan is there for the future, Bushiroad added to Genesis division some new Regalia (plenty to make a pure Regalia deck.) Before I post the list of the deck I must say that this deck is pure Genesis deck. I don't like mixing up but it doesn't mean it's not effective. It just makes thje deck more complicated and this deck lsit I provide may be used even by begginer players.
Grade 0:
1x Battle Maiden, Amenohoakari
4x Mirror Regalia, Achlis
4x Far Sight Regalia, Clear Angel
4x Battle Maiden, Kukurihime
4x Regalia of Benevolence, Eir

Grade 1:
4x Regalia of Frozen Breath, Svalin
4x Apple Witch, Cider
3x Exorcism Regalia, Shiny Angel
3x Ordain Owl

Grade 2:
4x Regalia of Abundance, Freya
4x Regalia of Fate, Norn
4x Goddess of Trees, Jupiter

Grade 3:
4x Cosmic Regalia, CEO Yggdrasill 
3x Omniscience Regalia, Minerva

So the deck is pretty powerfull. It is curently one of the best and guard blockade giving the fact that the cost is practically a joke in comparison of what you gain. Genesis is focusing on massive soulcharging early game which is used mid and late game by grade 3's. Now our main boss is Cosmic Regalia, CEO Yggdrasill .
[ACT](VC): Legion 20000 "Regalia of Fate, Norn" (If your opponent has a grade 3 or greater vanguard, only once, this unit may return four cards from your drop zone to your deck, and search your deck for the specified card, and perform Legion.)[AUTO](VC):[Soul Blast (6)] When this unit attacks a vanguard, if this unit is in Legion, you may pay the cost. If you do, until end of that battle, this unit gets [Critical]+1, and your opponent cannot call grade 1 or greater units to (GC) from his or her hand.
[AUTO](VC):When this unit attacks a vanguard, if you have another unit in the center column, this unit gets [Power]+3000 until end of that battle.
  Just to make you understand what I am talking about. There are other  clans who have units with such  skill but with a different cost which heavier cost or/and a hard a certain clause (must call a unit, have more than x power, must be xth battle etc.). Based on those reasons, this cost and conditions is the cheapest among of guard blocking units
 An other common chracteristic of guard blocking decks is power up. In order to make the attack go through, you need to power up at maximum so that your opponent will be so frightened by the numbers that he will say no guard.. Yggdrassil is leading in this field as well. Regalia of Fate, Norn and Mirror Regalia, Achlis gives your Regalia vanguard a +5000 bonus when soublasted and you won't have just one of those two. When you will do the soulblast, you will have from a minimum of two  to a maximum of six or even seven. (most often - 4.). And it gets better with Ordain Owl. The average of grade 3's I usually return are three grade 3's.  And that is why I run seven grade 3 units. (Since Legion appeared I run from 4 to 6 grade 3's per deck.)
 Moving on to the main question: How do you soulcharge?.You will havce to soulblast at least twelve cards to twenty-four (Yeah, I had that experience.)
 From the head of the list comes Battle Maiden, Amenohoakari or Kari for short. She is slightly better than Regalia of Prayer, Pray Angel. Pray Angel is one time soulcharger while Kari is a permanent one. Even though she soulcharges one at a time, you plus from her for the simple fact you don't have to replace her with another booster and she provides the same amount of soul as Pray Angel..However, Kari won't cover up herself the entire process. Since  Legion is the current meta skill you don't have the luxury to wait and bid your time with Kari alone. Tha is why we have some additions that consistenly boost up that pace. The first one and my favorite  is Regalia of Abundance, Freya. It's core skill is like Sahohime's but it's better because it's skill activates when you Legion. That said, it makes her a little bit better. Another soulcharger that will make a good combo with Mirror Regalia, Achlis and Regalia of Fate, Norn is Exorcism Regalia, Shiny Angel. Since you can target anything in your drop zone, you can recycle copies of those two for another power up. Not to mention, it is the best ride. Now, comes one of the unique methods of soulcharging that Genesis has: Quintet Wall Charge.  Regalia of Frozen Breath, Svalin in combination with Apple Witch, Cider allows you to soulcharge seven cards (but don't wait to long for them. And do not missridebecuase you want you want to use that combo )at once but as separate they are good as well. Returning four cards back to your deck is a must  for Legion and if you can't afford early guarding just throw off Svalin and you will have instant material for Legion. Apple Witch, Cider will be a good unit to throw off in front of Vanguard attack alongside other guards (especially, if those are Regalia of Fate, Norn and Mirror Regalia, Achlis). to get two things at once.
 Now let's chew what is left.
  The triggers are pretty simple. Genesis as a golden rule, run twelve critical triggers with exceptions of course. The exceptiuon here is the Achlis's skill which is a key element in this deck. If you are brave enough you can run 12 critical and 4 stands (no heals.) but I am not that brave.
 Goddess of Trees, Jupiter is the 12000 attacker for Regalia. You can choose a Regalia unit or other cheaper units. I choose this because it can the attack the vanguard alone and it's good unit to stack triggers on.
I run three Omniscience Regalia, Minerva because of two reasons. The first I already explained above. The second one is that some people figured out the weakness of Legion (your oppoonent must have a grade 3 or higher vanguard) and that is why those people build grade 2 based decks (puts an insane pressure on you.) but Minerva can help you to win the game with her Limit Break. Even if you don't get the crossride, you will still be able to use all other power up skills on her and your opponent will get some hard backfire..
