I've almost always played the return strategy but recently i've been losing a few games and dropped my winrate a tad.
Issues I've been facing are Lawtia and Falkow, my typical opening is witch open, second turn if its a worthwhile target ie. a lvl 2, i'll slyph to witch and return it.
Good Lawtia players do not shade open, its most often Leonardo, and they see your witch, they'll shade the second turn. Ive tried haste soldiering the second turn to counter this, but turn 3 will be a regenerator knight. Eventually you'll be behind on sp and you can't catch up, I'll try some new strats with soul cards to see if i achieve any success.
With Falkow, I'm actually losing to people that concerntrate on eagle soldier and scythe, with their pinpoint attacks they easily wipe out your bouncers, I use witch, wizard/mystere, and eventually you just can't revive anymore and lose in that manner. I'll try a new strategy tommorow with deep sea squid and hope that helps, any suggestion/advice is welcomed!
