The thing with Ex brahma is, it can be played outside of it's own faction (unlike grebby). And the faction (and sphere) it's in, can support it pretty stupidly well (lots of SP gen, really good AT buffing).

^ if you didn't get the irony (and general un-fun-ery) of that... well... call me whiny then.
I have managed to beat double return and wrath with ex brahma...It wasn't mermaids though (was WK instead, if it was mermaids, I'd probably lose lol). Double/triple playing ex brahma makes for some pretty stupid situations (unlike ex riza, as he's a char), with enough SP gen you kinda just end up sitting there with well, an immortal tank that can kill stuff.
TBH, i'm just glad the damn thing isn't priest like it is in JP, can you imagine that thing being played with raste?
Also, as randoms said, I meant the TGC guy Gravan (who I usually nickname gravy for some reason), not the awesome mech thing Granverion.

That's pretty much what I meant lol.
For the EN thing, it's a valid comparison because of the similar roles. The difference in useage/winrate, I think is that EN is an easier file to get the cards for (firstly there's basically a prebuilt) and the fact, EN has many, many great (succubus, dagon /esky/rats/possibly liz ss/tauras etc etc) / borderline (fenrir) / derp cards (Nue/possibly fierte soul/janus, if lv3).
As for grebby, while I do think he's OP (mostly just the fact he heals AND at boosts, also wtf is up with that soul), I think commander is even more OP than grebby. I quite often say my dislike for the ork subtype in chat, mostly because they're just a fairly average subtype, with 2 OP support cards that like double the winrate.

I thought it was Mercenary?
Anywho, I think I've derailed this enough for now
