I agree that this is how it should
be but gowen and refess have gained the arguably most desirable sub 3* cards for their respective sphere whilst the other two have merely gained the best of a bad bunch. These packs should be balanced by strength not balanced by rarity, and should fill up holes in the starters not make one more dominant than another. I dont feel anybody could argue that gowen starter which is already the most folart ready file really needed the bof or the merc, guardian makes refess more playable in folart without ex lap but the other packs dont seem to offer very much. So a suggestion each Pack contains one 2* their is one 2* for each sphere and they replace a current card in the sphere list.
Salamander soldier> Mercenary. Mercenary is a very potent card and one which i dont feel many starter files have an answer for whilst salamander soldier shears up a weakness in the gowen starter rather than making its strengths overly powerful, i recognise that some may not like the fact that it can be used by any starter but that is in part to balance the fact that gowen does have it so good with the cards available to it at the start.
Unwanted charity>Priest of the holy word. Hold up how come i want rid of merc but not guardian? Because i think guardian would make the refess starter competitive but not overly so i would say its on a par with a bof equipped gowen starter and would you look at that said gowen starter just got a sin to wollop that guardian. Unwanted chairty helps the refess player dodge this sin encouraging intelligent play and discouraging obvious sin ss. Maybe armour knight would be a better discard than priest but a more avid refess player than i could probably answer that better.
( from this point i can no longer see what im writing i apologise if its a bit garbled)
Warning knife>Crest halberd soldier. Wtf isnt crest halberd good? Yes i think crest halberd is good but the lawtia starter already comes with Shade soldier, Moonlight warrior, Revenant. All lvl 3 units around the same stats as Halberd, warning knife helps lawtia take down those guardians and dual aze wielders that it is likely to encounter.
Sweeping tidalwave> Rapidly flying apprentice. The falkow starter already has falnking attack if you really need to move your opponents units around or spank that ex zuga, and whilst the rfa ss is pretty tasty you really need a miracle fruit to make it work and even then you dont need a playset of them. Tidalwave could be used to remove any sin fodder once again helping encourage advanced play, it can send back blitz soldier or a pesky lycan, it could even be used to bounce your own sylphs so fencer can bring some more pain.
