-1 Giant Trunade +1 Heavy
What format are you from anyway?

Garmr is easily accessible Dark.
Generic staples > nordic traps.

+1 BLS - EotB
Yes, BLS is legal now.

-1 White Goat
-1 Svartalf
+2 Maxx C
Need speed? Add Maxx.
You don't need alfars. If you want to Loki, use vanadis.

I had completely forgotten about Giant Trunade being banned. I havent tried this deck in DN yet, so I havent had to deal with the ban. Awhile back I got 2nd place in a tourney with this deck, which is why I use it. Recently Ive been working on it to get it up to par though...edited my first post with the changes.

If you plan on using them irl, I hope you care to pay for them.
maxxs are easily 80 each. BLS is ~30?

Quite expensive.

You didn't removed that last nordic relic, but that's all coming from me.
It might actually be decent, but I wouldn't know.
I'd tell you to add dustshoot, but it'll be banned in 10 days or so, so...
I've never played a Pure nordic deck, so you'll have to get advice from others on the specific stuff.

Aha, another Nordic player. Well, it's nice to see someone using this archetype. It can be fun Very Happy

IMO, it's best to use the Nordic Alfar if and when you're able to drop an Aesir fast. Dverg, then Ljosalf to target the Aesir, and finally Svartalf via Ljosalf. Instant Loki. Also, Ljosalf is a Light monster, allowing you to Banish it and a Dark monster for a BLS summon.

Lots of people prefer Vanadis over Valkyrie because of how flexible she can be. However, you can combo Burial from a Different Dimension pretty well with Valkyrie's Banishing effect, granting you two more Tuners to revive Odin with, though it's wise to MST/Heavy Storm as it can be too risky, but drops Odin fast if successful.

The only Nordic Relic I find useful is Laevateinn, since nothing can be chained to it, and thus guarantees that a monster will be popped. Good when you have Guldfaxe or Vanadis on your hand, and your opponent's lone monster was unfortunate enough to destroy Tanngrisnir.

It'd be a good idea to drop one Ryko, as milling could be bad for this deck.

You're good with your Beasts, as that would perhaps be your best way to bring an Aesir out to play. Just wanted to let you know that it looks good Smile

Tragoedia may be a good addition, as it can be summoned when you take Battle Damage, it can nab an opponent's monster permanently, and change its Level depending on what you have in your Grave. Best if used with Guldfaxe, though, since Vanadis has that "Nordics only" rule for Synchro Materials. Also, Tragoedia is another Dark monster, giving you something to Banish for BLS if you're not willing to part with any of your Nordics so fast. Oh, and its ATK depends on the cards you have in your hand, so it's good if you add Maxx "C".

I believe that's all I can provide. And these are just my suggestions, but I also love Nordic decks. I hope at least one of these tips helps you out.
