So lately I’ve improved my Astra season defence team with Thrasir and, as far as it is now, I usually only get 1 or 2 defeats, so no more than -60lift loss. That’s cool.
But today I faced what I feared the most: some teams just wall me so hard it hurts me physically. And usually are Cav teams. I hate them when I’m not playing with B!Ike
My Offense team is, this week:
- Altina + Naga for blessings + bonus points and all
- Corrin or Flying Olivia
- Matthew (carry)
Pretty straight forward team, but also really easy to counter. This past two weeks I get to the point of: or completely obliterate the enemy team, or they obliterate me. There’s no in-between term. This week I’ve finished my escape rope so I’m on the tight rope constantly (and I’ve already almost lost a battle, Olivia won the battle but alone ).
So I was thinking, should someone go out of the team? Altina and Nagi stay, and Matthew too since he is the carry. That leaves out two spots. I tend to use Aversa + Matthew and last spot goes for bonus unit, but this week is Altina so I can experiment a little bit more.
I find Aversa quite good and useful, but lately she’s not enough. As things are right now with my team, I feel like the chills I use and little buffs plus debuffs from Aversa aren’t enough for me. Then, I remembered someone! Mordecai.
The build would be pretty straight forward: his weapon + Shove or whatever is the skill that pushes you two spaces, DC in case Matthew fails to secure any kill, then his native B skill plus Spd and Res tactics in C and S slots. This way, if I fodder him Distant Counter, he will be able to support Matthew with buffs AND debuffs for the opposing team while walling any possible threat that is danced or killed Matthew. The problem will lie with the following astra season where I should think more about how to play with him (since I will be playing with a normal bonus unit), but that’ll come later.
I know it’s a pretty common build for Mordecai, but in case Matthew dies, Mordecai could finish off things nicely? Altina usually takes care of whatever is left, but sometimes people tend to use Hardy Bearing with inaccesible units so they kill Matthew and Altina really fast, leaving me to just accept my defeat.
So, poll time! I like polls
- Replace Aversa with Mordecai (with DC)
- Replace Aversa with Mordecai (without DC)
- Don’t replace Aversa, you fool
Thank you for reading through all of this, I hope you have/had a nice day
