Q: Can you share your strategy in winning the games?
A: I used a Fifth Omni deck revolving around Drum’s abilities, hovering at around 6 or 7 life most of the time.

Q: Since you started playing the game, has your deck evolved?
A: Yes, every single time a new pack comes out I try to tune my deck.

Q: Do you have a favorite card?
A: “Fifth Omni Dragon Lord, Drum“.

Q: If you could pick one character you’d like to challenge in Buddyfight, who would it be?
A: I do watch the animation, but there isn’t a character I’d like to challenge in particular.

Q: Among many formats of Future Card Buddyfight, which one do you enjoy the most?
A: Personally I like the individual format, but I think tag team would be fun as well.

Q: Any developments you wish to happen in the game, or in the animation?
A: Additional Fifth Omni support or Drum support, please! (laughs)

Q: Do you have any tips for other players who want to play better?
A: Feel free to contact any top players, or anyone in the community if you need any help. The community is really friendly and wants to support each other out in any way they can.

Q: Anything else you wish to share?
A: I really enjoy the game. I would like to thank Bushrioad for hosting this event and I hope to see more people enjoying the game as well.
