Super Godfests have become a regular part of our PAD life as it will offer at least 1/3 chance to acquire any Godfest Exclusive (6 or 7-star) for the price of 10 Magic Stones per roll. With this baseline in mind, the spicier Super Godfests are those that feature any combination of higher rolling rates, the inclusion of high rarity Seasonal cards (eg. Valentine’s Ideal ), or featuring rarer non-GFE cards such as the Samurai 3 Pantheon.
In the case of the current Super Godfest, it features essentially 1/3 GFE rates along with two Samurai 3 cards which brings the total chance for acquiring any Pantheon card at 64%.
With this in mind, this Super Godfest may be worth rolling in if you have the capacity to field a strong Remu team and did not pull Dante. Furthermore, Norza , Menoa , Grandis , and Shelling Ford are featured who all bring something valuable to any Monster Box.
Remu is the newest Godfest Exclusive to come to North America and together with Dante , are able to form a tremendous team with 3x HP / 390x ATK / 1.5x RCV / 43.75% Damage Reduction along with Auto Follow Up Attack and +2 Combos when matching 6 or more Fire orbs.
This is a truly spectacular leader skill overall as it brings enough Effective HP to tank all realistic mechanics along with many harder hits that other teams could not survive. This is thanks to the 3x HP and 43.75% Damage Reduction and while the RCV is on the lower end, it is completely solved by Amaterasu who brings 3 Effective Skill Boosts and one of the highest RCV stats in the game to compliment her Enhanced Heart Orbs . This is important because you can in theory stall for a prolong period of time as you can always heal back up to full while still being able to absorb large amounts of damage.
In addition to Amaterasu, Polowne and Duval are both somewhat staple subs as together they bring 10 Effective Skill Boosts, Super Blind Resist , L , a Colour and Damage Absorb, along with a fast charging ATK buff that also spawns a column of Fire orbs. Finally, Base Grandis can round out the team with his own solid personal damage and heavily upgraded kit whenever he Transforms after 30 turns.
These four subs bring 15/18 required Skill Boosts to Transform while also addressing many of the more dangerous mechanics in a given dungeon.
While this is promising, missing Amaterasu, Polowne, or Duval may be problematic as they are difficult cards to replicate/replace which will be the main crutch of this team for the average player.
While this may be disheartening, the team is still loaded with potential as your two leaders have wonderfully powerful base actives with Remu being able to completely counter Spinners. Remu’s active is able to generate a single Spinner for a single turn along with bonus movement time which will overwrite any existing Spinner or Time Debuff. This is a first type of active to directly counter Spinners as they will be removed which is incredible when facing numerous Spinners in horrible places for several turns.
As a whole, Remu x Dante teams are incredibly potent and the main hurdle will be building a competent team for tackling difficult content.

Other Pantheon cards (1.6% each, 64% total)
*Note, Cotton comes in one of her 5 Evolved forms but the total chance of rolling any Cotton is 1.5%.
To roll or not to roll
Generally speaking, Super Godfests cost 10 Magic Stones and feature at worst, 1/3 chance for any Godfest Exclusive. As such, it is most advantageous to try and line up as many key cards for your Monster Box as possible before shaking the REM’s hand.
In the case of Remu and her debut Super Godfest, the rolling rates are just a tad higher compared to normal along with featuring a reasonable array of other Godfest Exclusives with many of the older ones being absent from the 7-star rarity.
As such, the decision of whether or not to roll will come down to your own individual Monster Box and goals. Building upon that, it is important to determine whether or not you are rolling to advance your position or the concept of Need over Greed.
What I mean by this is determining whether or not rolling here will actually help you clear more content compared to what you can right now. For example, if you are currently stuck on Arena 5, you need to determine what is holding you back: is it a lack of experience and active skill management or is it because you are using a team with many holes in it?
If you are failing due to issues stemming from your own orb matching skills or active skill management, rolling may not actually help, especially if you have a solid team already. On the flip side, if you have hit a metaphorical wall and are currently being held back by the depth of your Monster Box, rolling can be advantageous assuming the featured cards can help you.
Remu’s Super Godfest debut is an exciting time for owners of Dante as they will finally be blessed with a wonderful leader pairing to help take them into newer and more difficult content. While this pairing is incredibly potent, it does have a relatively restrictive sub pool that lacks the depth/flexibility of other teams.
Regardless, this event is slightly better from a pure rolling perspective for Godfest Exclusives/Samurai 3 cards as 36% of the rolls will result in either of these. an extra couple of percent for something valuable is always welcome along with the chance to acquire a new and powerful card during their debut event.
With that being said, let me know what you think about this event in the comments below and whether or not you plan on rolling. If you did roll, let me know how it went.
