When making the decision to roll or save your magic stones, you need to determine if the featured pantheons can benefit or complement your teams. Chasing for one specific monster is unwise as you will most likely be disappointed and should ideally have Godfests that overlap with many target cards. Remember all monsters that come out of the REM will qualify for Skill Inheritance so do not be too hasty when selling dupes. For a more detailed team building help, please refer to my full list Popular Leader’s and their Full Sub List Post. Lastly, to find more information about a specific pantheon or monster, refer to my Master List to better refine your search. If you are considering to purchase a Four Gentlemen card, please read my Review and Comparison HERE.
The Brighter Futures Godfest features the rarely seen 5x GFE rates. Furthermore, this Godfest has been broken up into 3 days to space out the featured GFE along with a different set of pantheon monsters.
All cards rolled from the REM will receive a +50 to a random stat. Furthermore, non-featured GFE will not be available from their respective days. This means you can completely avoid the less ideal Godfest Exclusives.
The new GFE, Aten, will also be making his debut and you can read my analysis of him HERE.

Featured cards overview
Brighter Futures Godfest Lineup
No Sonias, Metatrons, Demons, & Norns
No Odins, Dragonbounds, Fenrirs, & Norns
No Odins, Kalis, Sonias, & JP Callers
Absence of non-featured GFE
This Godfest is somewhat unique as you are able to completely avoid certain GFE on particular days. This can be beneficial when trying to avoid duplicates or the more lackluster cards.
5x and 6-star GFE
As we saw from Player’s Choice Godfest, 6-star rolls are incredibly rare, but are somewhat irreplaceable on numerous endgame teams. This heavy reliance on 6-stars is taxing on players as the gap between pantheon/5-stars is ever widening.
With that being said, 5x GFE events are the best times to acquire those coveted six stars. The corresponding pantheon is important; however, you should focus on the featured Godfest Exclusives this time.
Presently speaking, Kaede , Dark Kali , and Kanna are the most relevant 6-stars from a purely endgame point of view. Kaede duplicates are instrumental on their own team along Ronove’s teams. On the other hand, you can never have enough Dark Kalis for both subs and inherits on Ra Dragon along with Kanna being a new staple sub for the same team.
As another general trend, the newer GFE tend to be stronger compared to the older ones (Sonia, Metatron, Odins). Granted this can change with new evolutions, but newly released cards tend to be better positioned against the next few months of Powercreep.
With all that being said, Day 2 appears to be the strongest day to roll from a GFE perspective as it features all the top 6-stars along with newer Godfest Exclusives.
Day 1 overview
Day 1 features the newly Reincarnated Greco-Roman 1 pantheon. They are some of the oldest cards in Puzzle and Dragons and their viability was waning until they received their newest evolution. This allows them to form durable teams that have passive damage reduction against various colours while retaining a modest attack multiplier. Presently, Minerva is the strongest leader of the group as she has a reliable Arena 3 cheese team along with the option to pair with Ilm to form a 60x ATK / 2.5x RCV team with 50% damage reduction to fire, light, and dark monsters.
With their 1,000 weighted stats and triple typing, many of the Greco-Romans are able to act as powerful subs on a variety of teams. However, Venus tends to the most popular due to the prevalence of mono-light teams and the highest RCV in the game.
Finally, most of these cards have low value as duplicates as their base actives are relatively underwhelming outside of Hades as Gravity inherits are rare. Furthermore, many players use Hades in his non-Reincarnated form as a massive buffer for skill delays (30 turns).
Day one does not feature the Sonias, Metatrons, Demons, and Norns. This is reasonable as you have the chance at Dark Kali and Kaede while avoiding some of the arguably least valuable cards. Unfortunately, this comes at the price of missing out on the newer Demon cards.
In my opinion, Day 1 is the second best day to roll solely from the exclusion of the Demons compared to Day 2.
Day 2 overview
The Japanese 1 pantheon is slated to receive all their reincarnated evolutions in the very near future. This will provide a dramatic boost to their viability as subs or leaders as they will gain significantly more weighted stats along with the potential for a new and exciting leader skill.
Presently speaking, Orochi still remains one of the strongest delays as either a sub or inheritance while Hino offers amazing TPA damage on Reincarnated Shiva teams. Susano has a valuable shield, but the overarching need for damage mitigation has been somewhat diminished due to the heart-cross meta and tankier leaders, but is still valuable nevertheless. Amaterasu features a full bind clear in her non-awoken form while her awoken form provides dual Skill Bind Resist. Finally, Yomi is a modest leader who will hopefully regain power and popularity with a reincarnated evolution.
Day 2 does not feature the Odins, Dragonbounds, Fenrirs, and Norns. This is wonderful as you have eliminated many lower value cards while retaining the top six-stars and newer GFE. All of this combined makes it the most appealing day in my opinion and is when I will probably be rolling.
The Wisdom Kings are the newest Pantheon and none of them feature an ultimate (or reincarnated) evolution. This places them a bit behind other cards, but all feature unique abilities. Unfortunately, outside of Acala, none have a solid place in the current meta and would be more so used to fulfil niche roles. If you wish to read more about the Wisdom Kings, please refer to my article HERE.
Day 3 does not feature the Odins, Kalis, Sonias, and JP Callers. This means no Kaede, Kanna, or Dark Kali and feels quite underwhelming overall. Granted this is the only day to acquire the Norns, but they have far less value by comparison.
Overall, I would say Day 3 is the weakest day to roll in due to the most lackluster pantheon and featured GFE.
The Brighter Futures Godfest is an exciting event due to the 5x rates for featured Godfest Exclusives. This will be the best time to acquire the rarely rolled 6-stars and Day 2 has the strongest line up in my opinion.
My opinion is based on what would be the best cards to roll assuming you have nothing to being with. Each box will vary on a case-by-case basis and it is still up to you to decide which day to roll in.
Which day is most appealing to you and what do you hope to roll?
