good posts worthing. mercenary is awesome since his action skill for 1 sp is the best self buffing action skill in alteil. look at lv 5 falkow guy for comparison. his name eludes me at the moment.
furthermore, this morning i typoed a response to this thread using worthing's files as an analysis and i didn't see 1 that contain miracle fruit to counter return as it just wasn't a viable counter i suppose.
i mean the guy is one of the top 3 perhaps top player. he primarily plays gowen. therefore, it is likely he knows the strategies that defeat top tier return decks and their mechanics.
personally, i hate lv 3 return. i wish it had some drawback such as lose a grim etc. i don't profess to know the intricacies of the game but return has not been nerfed since it's inception and likely will not be. perhaps a clause on return such as this cannot be used on a unit that was just revived might help since it saves the 1sp loss form reviving a unit and having it returned.
Nought's had, all's spent, Where our desire is got without content;'Tis safer to be that which we destroy Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.
