Help on building a Crest file

Hello guys. I pulled 3 Afeemina earlier and wanted to make a file revolving around her. My attempt in making a crest deck was kind of bad though. I tried many things like 3 crest greatsword soldiers, but i found that my units are either too slow to attack or too fragile to take hits. I really want to make a competitive Duchy of Crest file, I was wondering if you guys can give me your opinion and advice. Im more used to rush decks with very little cost, medium builds like this are kind of confusing for me.

Soul 9:
Magic Doll Mini
Angry Mob
EX: Judge of Heretics Bardia
Moon and Soul Norweiden
Hell Smoke

Units:
Grade 1:
Shadex2

Grade 2:
Crest Ranger
Guard Captain/Afeemina x3
Crest Orderly
Angry Mob

Grade 3:
Crest Lady Paladinx2
Crest Paladin x3
Crest Halberd Soldier x3

Grade 5:
Crest Devil Knight x3
Veteran Crest Slayer x3

Grimoirs:
Soul Pact x2
Warning Knife

As you can probably tell, I havent been playing alteil for a looong time and have no idea on what the meta is. I dont know what tier Crest decks are, but I dont really mind. I want to see this through. Any advice would be appreciated.

Well its looks pretty good main thing i see its that this deck will be weak to returns.
So i would add some grim ban like augmented sorcerer to increase your chances.

I am not sure what to say about ss ,I think they look pretty decent.
Return is one of best cards in game and never had a nerf.

You need another lady paladin, take out crest slayer, orderly, a soul pact put in another crest , a good early attacker like mind soldier or langbart (better bart) wild help since u only have 1, bitter destiny and less lp.
Don't worry about returns since ure probably not going to raise refess sl. I would also switch out the lvl 5 in favor ofyug in the future and put in more tech cards. I run around 5 tech cards in my more successful files and bitter destiny is my fav.

Some things to think about with Crest and other LV 3 lawtia files. Consuming Grudge + a revival soul skill can really turn the tide. when you get better with the timing, Bitter Destinty and Death's Embrace can win you games. Also, a lot of key Crest cards have AGI 3. AGI 3 is not super awesome, but AGI 4 can help you overwhelm opponents quickly. So, looking for a way to get AGI+1 to some of your units isn't a bad idea -- in that vein, of all rares, the original Annarose would probably do the most for this File.

There are two big problems here

#1) You do not have a free revive unit.
#2) You have a mixture of level 5 units, and level 3 units - this makes it incredibly difficult to get all units on the field together as a comprehensive group, and makes for choppy flow.

Kinda tired now, but I'll try to provide some more helpful information later.
Thanks.

As an alternative to free revives, you can also try undead (Hell Smoke, Revenant, Cursed Armor Knight, EX Cursed Armor Knight, Death Dragonknight Langbart, etc.).

I'd cut the maximum lvl for any mid game units to be lvl 4. That way, you'll have the SP to swarm the field and possibly use Afeemina's skill.

As for the end game, 1 Zuga would work (if you got it).

An annarose works because she's also a free revive but personally I would go with Verlatt and eskatia. Counters en too.
