Much like the main game’s playable characters, Genius Invokation TCG’s character cards have different weapon types, elemental alignments, and various skill sets that, when used effectively and in the right mix, will earn you every duel.

From Genshin Impact version 3.3, there are a total of 27 character cards in Genius Invokation TCG.

While most of them are made up of playable characters, others are world bosses and enemies.

The list of currently available character cards includes Barbara, Bennett, Chongyun, Collei, Cyno, Diluc, Diona, Fatui Pyro Agent, Fischl, Ganyu, Jadeplume Terrorshroom, Jean, Kaeya, Kamisato Ayaka, Keqing, Maguu Kenki, Mirror Maiden, Mona , Ningguang, Noelle, Razor, Rhodeia of Loch, Stonehide Lawachurl, Sucrose, Xiangling, Xingqiu and Yoimiya.

However, players don’t have an unlimited number of invites they can use to acquire each character card, so you’ll need to choose which ones you want to get carefully.

While you can choose any cards you want and build your deck as you see fit, the character cards listed will be our own recommendations for your decks to have a good foundation in the future during your duel:

Cryo is one of the most powerful elements in Genius Invokation TCG, as it allows you to block enemy cards from moving with Freeze Reaction, deal piercing damage to all three enemy cards with Superconduct, or greatly boost the damage of an attack with Melt.

The ability to trigger these reactions on their own makes Cryo characters a good choice in Genius Invokation TCG, and two of these characters are some of the strongest in the game.

The first of these two is Ganyu. Just like in the main game, Ganyu is all about area of ​​effect damage in Genius Invokation TCG with his “Frostflake Arrow” special normal attack and “Celestial Shower” elemental blast.

Frostflake Arrow hits all three enemy character cards when used, inflicting 2 Cryo DMG to the active character and 2 Piercing DMG to the remaining standby characters. However, this powerful ability costs 5 Cryo Elemental Dice to use, so you need lucky rolls or the right support cards to use it consistently.

Frostflake Arrow deals even more damage if you use Ganyu’s talent card, “Undivided Heart”.

During this time, Celestial Shower inflicts 1 Cryo DMG to the active character and 1 Piercing DMG to the others in standby. It also summons 1 Sacred Cryo Pearl which does the same effect during the endgame for two turns.

Ganyu can quickly smash through the enemy board with the right setup, so make sure you have support cards that give him as many elemental dice to use as possible. Equipping the Blizzard Strayer Artifact Card or having the Cryo Resonance Cards, if you’re running it alongside another Cryo character, will greatly help you with this.

The other high level Cryo character in Genius Invokation TCG aside from Ganyu is Kamisato Ayaka.

While Ganyu is all about damaging the entire enemy board, Ayaka excels at getting in and out of combat and dealing tons of single target damage.

Ayaka’s bread and butter is her passive skill ‘Kamisato Art: Senho’, which converts physical DMG inflicted by her normal attacks into Cryo DMG whenever she becomes the active character.

This allows you to start your turns with your other characters before switching to Ayaka and triggering one of the strong Cryo-related elemental reactions. For example, you can start your turn with Diluc and use his skill to apply Pyro to an enemy and then switch to Ayaka and use his normal attack, which will then trigger Melt and greatly increase his damage.

Ayaka’s Cryo-Infused normal attacks can be further enhanced by her “Kanten Senmyou Blessing” talent card, which increases the Cryo DMG she gains from Kamisato Art: Senho while allowing you to spend one less elemental die when you pass to her.

Strengthen your Ayaka by equipping it with weapon cards to increase its damage and artifact cards to reduce its use of elemental dice.

Support cards like Katheryne and “Leave it to me!” are particularly good to have, as they will allow you to switch to Ayaka and attack with her in a single turn.

Another strong element of Genius Invokation TCG is Electro, who can trigger a variety of elemental reactions that can adapt to different playstyles.

Overcharge increases your attack damage while forcing your opponent to switch maps and disrupt their strategy, Electro-Charged and Superconduct let you inflict piercing DMGs to whittle down the enemy team, while Bloom and Quicken let you to inflict greater single-target damage.

When it comes to enabling those strong electro-related reactions, Fischl is definitely the best option thanks to his “Nightrider” skill. This allows him to inflict 1 Electro DMG on his target, which is enough to trigger reactions, but what makes him so good is that he also summons Oz to inflict additional Electro DMG during the endgame during two towers.

While her skills make Fischl the perfect support character, she can also be the main damage dealer herself. His burst, “Midnight Phantasmagoria”, inflicts 4 Electro DMG on your target as well as 2 Piercing DMG.

Equipping his talent card, “Stellar Predator”, also helps in this regard by giving him bonus Electro DMG when using normal attacks when Oz is in the field.

You can reliably start games with Fischl as the active character to summon Oz before quickly switching to your other characters to trigger as many reactions as possible. To help you, artifact cards and support cards like “When the Crane Returned” are a must have on your deck.

While Fischl is the go-to Electro character for dealing damage and triggering reactions off the field, Keqing is your best bet when you want someone to get up and deliver.

Keqing’s skill, “Stellar Restoration”, inflicts 3 Electro DMG on your target and creates a special “Lightning Stilleto” card. You can use Lightning Stiletto to immediately make Keqing your active character and have it use Stellar Restoration and give it Electro Infusion.

With this, you can start the match with Keqing as an active character to use his skills and create a Lightning Stilleto card. You can then switch to your other characters to use their skills and apply the necessary items, after which you can use Lightning Stilleto to bring Keqing back and trigger reactions.

While Keqing’s Stellar Restore combo is great for single target damage, she can also clear the entire field with her “Starward Sword” burst.

At the cost of 4 Electro dice and 3 Energy, Keqing can inflict 4 Electro DMG on his primary target as well as 3 Piercing DMG. If the entire enemy team is affected by items like Dendro or Pyro, Keqing can finish them off with a single hit with his flurry.

Make Keqing even stronger with Weapon Cards, Artifact Cards, and Resonance Cards. It is also recommended to have support cards that can quickly give him energy to use his burst.

Hydro is another strong element of Genius Invokation TCG, capable of triggering a variety of reactions that adapt to virtually any playstyle.

Whether you want to buff single target damage with Vaporize or Bloom, inflict piercing DMG with Electro-Charged, or stop enemies in their tracks with Frozen, Hydro can meet all of your needs. Or in other words, “The power of water is its ability to take any form…”

While Rhodeia of Loch is one of the most annoying world bosses in the main game, she is also one of the strongest characters in Genius Invokation TCG.

His strength comes from his ability to flood the battlefield with summons that inflict Hydro DMG on enemies during the endgame, allowing him to set up Hydro-related reactions. Not only that, a Rhodeia flanked by an army of summons is also capable of eliminating an enemy with a single attack.

Rhodeia’s core skills are “Oceanic Mimic Summoning” and “The Myriad Wilds”, which allow her to summon three types of Oceanic Mimics. Oceanic Mimic Summoning summons one Mimic at the cost of 3 Hydro dice while The Myriad Wilds summons two Mimics at the cost of 5 Hydro dice.

There are three types of oceanic mimics: ferret, frog, and raptor. The Ferret inflicts 2 Hydro DMG with 2 uses, the Frog inflicts 2 Hydro DMG for 2 uses while decreasing the damage received by the active character, while the Raptor inflicts 1 Hydro DMG with 3 uses.

Once you have all three summons on the field, you can then use Rhodeia’s “Tide and Torrent” burst to take out a single enemy at the cost of 3 Hydro dice and 3 Energy. It deals a base of 2 Hydro DMG, but will deal an additional 2 DMG for each friendly summon on the field.

Having all three Mimics in the field allows Tide and Torrent to dish out 8 Hydro DMGs. Nothing can survive this, especially if it also triggers damage mitigation reactions like Vaporize when it hits.

Having artifact cards or support cards giving dice allows Rhodeia to summon her army of mimics as quickly as possible. Once all three are in the field, use his flurry to land a killing blow on an enemy. If they, or another waiting character, somehow remain, then the mimics can finish them off during the endgame.
