MD fencer was the most important unit in the first file I ever made to break the 2k RP barrier. Do not disrespect her. She's incredible and taught me how powerful Sumer is.

Works well in my janus file, nice having units like her so an EN file will have a bit more flexibility and a bit of a surprise factor. one thing to keep in mind that her close skill when she copies a level 4 will only hit a level 4 if it is in range, which she has a range of one, so don't expect her to be a counter against serpent for example. Though it would have been much better if it was rangeless and costed on sp.

pfft, oh yeah she did have range two although I kept her in the second row, but still serpent was in his normal third row so it didn't matter. Still won, but wasn't really because of rivarre, nor was it because of janus either, I think it mostly had to do with my cudgel ss.

you would also want to be careful against level 4's like svara

I believe she is for what one would call "situational use", rather than say, forcing a situation for her.

Only just started playing her,and I have to say she is looking a very fair card.Great art work,oh pardon me!Stats tactics etc.
What they just said.

You could just carry one?Or go up to 3 depending on your file.
I think she is a quite a rounded card overall.

In my opinion, her Slayer form works great against the many 4's decks that have arisen: BKR/Jack, Dilate/Ruuca, Catira/Toro in particular. She can also support Lycans against return-based decks in her lv3 form (but she won't get the Rats buff). Spy form is... I guess good against bigs? Haven't been able to use it yet.

Francis used to be a soft counter against bigs and mids, but her effect only works on 5 and up, and she's a lv4—therefore, difficult to fit into things like a Doll Rush, Lycan Rush, or (to a lesser extent) Undeads. Rivarre fills the gap left by Francis.

That being said, she's a support unit, not a centerpiece. Lots of situational versatility—she feels somewhat Falkow-y in that respect. I try to fit in 2 copies when i'm making a Lawtia rush.
