Prior to the release of version 3.4, the Genius Invocation TCG metagame was dominated by Cryo decks with Ganyu and Ayaka or one-turn kill (OTK) decks led by Yoimiya. But with the input of the adorable Klee, these decks are in trouble as the Spark Knight kicks off a new ‘Control’ deck meta!

The Klee is an excellent control card, meaning its strength lies in deterring or preventing the enemy from executing the deck strategy.

As a Pyro catalyst character, Klee, when combined with off-field Electro character cards like Fischl, can easily trigger his powerful Overcharge reaction to force enemy cards to disable them with just his basic attacks. Not only that, the Klee spark blast can punish and further disrupt the enemy’s attempts to retaliate with Sparks ‘n’ Splash.

When used, Klee’s explosion creates a Sparks ‘n’ Splash effect on the opponent’s playing field. When the enemy active character card uses a skill, Sparks ‘n’ Splash deals them 2 Pyro DMG.

Costing 3 energy and 3 Pyro dice, Sparks ‘n’ Splash can be used in the second round of the game to foil your enemy’s plans. Combined with Electro, Hydro or Cryo attacks from your other cards, your enemy will be put at a disadvantage because any move they make will further disrupt their strategy or cause their cards to take more damage.

Moreover, Klee also deals his own heavy damage with his Jumpty Dumpty basic skill. Using this once turns his next basic attack into a Charged Attack that consumes 1 Pyro die less and deals +1 DMG. Once again, Electro, Hydro or Cryo attacks will increase your attacks even more.

Powerful character cards to pair with Klee include Fischl, Xingqiu, Mona, and Ayaka. You can also pair him with Anemo characters with forcibly swappable abilities like Jean or Sucrose so the enemy can’t play the game they want.

We recommend a deck with Klee, Fischl and Jean. With Klee acting as the main damage dealer, Fischl dealing Electro damage from off-site, and Jean completing things with healing and utility, all three characters can unite to disrupt the enemy’s battle plan.

While Klee was quickly emerging as a strong addition to the Genius Invocation TCG character card roster, Beidou on the other hand… was pretty bad. despite being a strong character Genshin Effect convenient, its kit doesn’t translate very well to the Genius Invocation TCG.

Beidou’s weakest ability by far is his Tidecaller basic skill. After using the skill, Beidou takes a turn to prepare, gaining 2 shield points in the process before giving 2 Electro DMGs on your next turn. This is bad.

Not only does it waste a turn to deal worse damage than most other characters can do in one go, it’s also pretty easy to mess up. Having to go out while preparing the Tidecaller gives you nothing but energy for Beidou.

With the strongest character cards capable of taking one or two enemy cards in the time it takes for Beidou to deploy 2 Electro DMGs, it’s no surprise that he’s bad.

What about the explosion? Stormbreaker is honestly a good ability, deals 3 Electro DMG and creates Thunderbeast’s Target for the next 2 turns. While Thunderbeast’s Targe is active, your characters deal 1 additional Electro DMG when using a basic attack and take 1 less DMG when hit by an attack that deals at least 3 DMG.

Stormbreaker is similar to Yoimiya’s detonation up to the expensive cost of 4 Electro dice and 3 energies, only with some additional defensive benefits. However, it’s not even worth pushing your deck by Beidou, who contributes little other than his explosion.

If you’re looking for an Electro character card to build your decks, stick with Keqing and Fischl.

But if you really want Beidou to work, we recommend pairing him with Pyro, Dendro, Cryo or Hydro cards, then using Electro Resonance and Mona event cards to energize him to use his explosion.
