I was a bit bored and I've been meaning to write this for a while.
Lets take a short look into what Assassin's Soul does:
Stalking Death - Send one friendly unit to the Cemetery. After that, send one disengaged enemy unit of your choice to the Cemetery.
A few short notes on what's being said here. Assassin's soul will only go off IF you have a friendly unit on your side. After that, if the enemy is ENGAGED, no way is that unit going to assassinated by this soul.
So what are the few tricks here to properly get rid avoid assassin?
1. You make sure nothing is on your opponent's field (so that the skill doesn't activate at all since the card says it needs to kill a friendly unit first)
2. You engage all your units somehow (so the 2nd part of the skill does not activate)
These are ideal situations you would like to find yourself in. But most likely, the person using the assassin knows well how to secretly use assassin in many ways more than one. Because it's difficult second guessing where the assassin in the deck is going to be and what you can do if something does hit you hard. A key card grimore that avoids assassin would be the Shear Winds grimore of the Falkow sphere. Pretty useful for a lv2 card as it saves your butt from being destroyed or a Cudgel/Chiruru soul being activated that turn. It also randomizes the Invisible Druid soul that may be lurking for you.
A short list of what you can do for each sphere:
Falkow - Lv2 Shear Winds
Gowen - Lv1 Petrification
Lawtia - Lv2 Soul Bind
Refess - Nothing [can kill unit with Magic Bolt to avoid assassin and revive next turn to play but... pretty difficult to accomplish]
Ideally, if you know what's going to happen next and you got one of these cards packed in your deck. It's going to be a sure thing for you to survive the onslaught and protect your precious unit. But, most decks are hardly made to counter specifically assassin because they have other things to worry about instead. So rather than an ideal situation, it's best to handle things as they come
Because realistically, you're not always going to avoid assassin in all your games.
So what I want to tell everyone here is how to manage getting assassin rather than complaining about how OP the soul is.
The mindset of the player wanting to use the assassin soul is pretty obvious. They send out a useless unit that turn and they know one of their own units will die. Afterwards, that unit will die and the useless unit will be used as material to kill one of your more precious units. One of the more used counters would be a clean up of that field using return or cyclone to get rid of that useless unit. This situations becomes an eye for eye deal and you'll see them taking their Dalos for your important unit.
