So after winning several Standard tournaments over the last 3 weeks with a combination of Novas, Kagero, and OTT; i've developed an opinion: Grade 2 units are not as important as they used to be. Many Grade 1 units have abilities that allow them to hit crazy high numbers on their own such as Jetraizer. In addition, in a format with 10k Triggers and units like Dragonic Overlord that can Soul Blast 1 for a 10k power buff, or Soul Saver Dragon giving a 30k buff to every column, Grade 2s on defense don't really cut it anymore. Most Grade 2s still have 5k shields and in many situations that doesn't matter. When you guard with multiple Grade 2 units and are still only able to force a 1-pass, you begin to realize just how meaningless they are. The 10k shield of a Grade 1 is super important in Standard format and is why i'm using the numbers I am in this build.

 

Do you agree? Let me know.

grade 2s are obviously not as good as they used to be, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be playing a healthy amount of them. grade 2s have never actually been THAT relevant defence wise in the past, but they were always played for their reasonably good abilities. this is why i do heavily implore you to look into playing either 2 meme or 2 onmyoji, just because they have strong impact skills that help out heavily in the most relevant match-up of the mirror. you can probably cut the babies and bump up luck bird to like 3? and play 2 meme/onmyoji if only because the baby sucks ass.

Alot have been saying 23k for FRS with bespoke. I dont think its standard, because Scion doesnt do that. All of Scions models including the RS models never came standard with an upscale headunit. So Im going to stick to my guns and predict the Head unit we seen at FRS unveiling is the standard equipment. Do you agree?
