Hello everyone. Going to be yet again a quick post from me this week, as the sub list haven’t presented many changes yet again. Instead, however, I’d like to quickly recap on the Persona Collab, mainly its REM, in which NA will finally be getting starting next week (yay!)
In my opinion, the main card you should be looking out for is Ren Amamiya, the protagonist of Persona 5. I have done a write-up on him in my Sub Tier List post in May, which you can check out here. But in short, he provides FUA and 2 7c awakenings, is balanced typing (able to take any latent killers), and has a stellar active skill rivalling that of Odin Dragon’s famous awoken bind recovery.
Other than Ren, the other 6* of the REM has some leading potential, namely Yuki Makoto. Again, I have done a write-up on him in May’s Leader Aggregate List, which you can see here. Though, in summary, he’s similar to that of Rikuu, playing rainbow and Skill Charges but without a type restriction. Has since been washed out of the Aggregate Leader List, but in my opinion still a decent card.
The other 6*, Yu Narukami and Elizabeth, has seen some use, but aren’t a must have. Can fill niche roles or lead for fun, but don’t expect them to tackle Alt Arena well (compared to other leads/subs, of course).
Finally, the 5*; they all fill niche roles, at best. There maybe some use for Yosuke’s active skill as an inherit and Kirijo’s two devil killers, but there are other cards out there that do their jobs but better.
In conclusion, rolling is again should be dependant on your box. Though in my opinion, just like Magic the Gathering collab, the REM can be worth a few rolls to grab a copy of the “more useful” 5*, in hopes of lucking out on a 6*. Otherwise, the 10% diamond rate is going to be just as soul crushing as MtG.
Ren Amamiya CAN be worth trading for at the Trading Post, but again it’s going to be different for everyone. I know some of you out there have already traded way your GFE for Jhoira, in which case it may be wise to pass on Ren. I don’t think the other 6* are worth considering trading for. They’re good don’t get me wrong, but with the power creep nowadays they just get shadowed all too quickly.
I hope that helps in the Persona Collab to come. As always, thanks for reading!
DISCLAIMER: (quoted from SetsuPAD)
“Do NOT take these ratings as facts; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which subs are actually the best for your specific situation.”
Cards you own that are not on these Tier Lists are not automatically nonviable, and cards you own that are on these Tier Lists are not automatically viable.
The Subs below mostly accompany top combo/colour leads, such as the leaders from my “JP Aggregate Leader List” posts. They boast tremendous firepower through their multiple 7c awakenings and/or have valuable killer awakenings (such as God, dragon, devil killers). HOWEVER, they are not universal; all subs should be built around your leader, and more importantly the DUNGEON you are tackling. Which goes back to my main point: “Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which subs are actually the best for your specific situation.”
