Yusuke is the newest craze to come to NA Puzzle and Dragons as he is one of the best leaders in the game along with being an amazingly powerful sub. Furthermore, he will be one of the most widely available cards due to the fact that he is available to trade in for via the Monster Exchange System (can read more about that HERE).
These factors have led us into a throwback to Dark Athena era as a large chunk of player’s friend list may now be populated by Yusuke.
This article will summarize my thoughts and rationale for building a Yusuke team; however, team building is more about countering the dungeon mechanics and somewhat removes the notion of “perfect set ups.” As such, I find it best to understand how each sub functions as well as Yusuke’s strengths and weaknesses.

Three new and somewhat exciting cards have been added into the Monster Point shop: Amen , Mut , and Khonsu . All three of them will cost 750,000 Monster Points and will be a sizable investment for the average player. As such, it is wise to make sure you can actually benefit from them and avoid buyer’s remorse. However, all 3 will have a unique Weapon Assist evolution which enables them to contribute awakenings if assisted.
With that being said, GungHo NA will be announcing the winner of the MP Shop Survey will be revealed on Friday, April 20th during their official Twitch stream. The winner will cost 1,000,000 Monster Points and will only be available for a limited time. Thus, it may be best to wait until you see what the winner is as it may influence your purchasing decision.
This article will summarize Amen, Mut, and Khonsu’s viability and how you can make the most out of their presence.

750,000 Monster Points is still a large amount despite the fact that we have been given large amounts of the past year. As such, many players will only be able to purchase a single card and you wish to gain as much value from this card as possible.
All three of the new cards are able to Continue reading Amen, Mut, & Khonsu Review and Analysis – New 750,000 MP Cards
The Celtic Series is the newest Pantheon to be added into the Rare Egg Machine. This means they will be rotated throughout the REM but will be Highlighted upon their initial debut until the next Godfest.
With the Rare Egg Machine Renewal, all Pantheon cards, former 5* GFE, and miscellaneous junk will rotate on a regular basis but will Highlight specific cards during non-Godfest events. However, the Celtic Series are all 6* base cards which means they will have middling rolling rates during Godfests as they will lose their Highlighted status.
Despite boasting 1.4% rolling rates right now, it is not worth pursuing them at this point in time and it will be better to wait for a Godfest to have the chance of acquiring 6* GFE alongside of the Celtic Series.
Unlike some 6* Pantheon cards, the Celtic Series do not possess an Awoken Evolution and retain their active skill. Thus, it is advantageous to evolve them.

The Greco-Roman 3 series is a new Pantheon consisting of 6-star base cards. This means they will harder to roll than other Pantheon cards but are compensated by powerful actives and awakenings.
While the series has 5 different cards, you essentially have 10 different monsters as the active skill dramatically changes from base to Awoken form.
This article will summerize my thoughts on the series as well as provide advice as how to maximize their performance.

Two distinct forms
The Greco-Roman 3 Pantheon is similar to the Samurai 2 in that their base and Awoken form dramatically changes their usage.
The base form of the Greco-Roman 3 Pantheon all possess a 4-elemental board changer (that makes hearts) along with 1 turn of colour absorb void. This means you are able to bypass encounters like Noah Dragon a bit more more easily as you can void/ignore the colour absorption mechanic. Continue reading Greco-Roman 3 Review
Red Myr and Light Hera Dragon have both been released in the Monster Point shop for 750,000 MP. This places them in Dark Athena territory and are 2.5x more expensive than the regular MP cards. As a result, players are wondering if either of these two new cards are worth their price tag and what factors should be taken into consideration when making a purchase.
This article will summarize my thoughts on these two new monsters along with how I approach purchasing a MP card.
On a side note, I have successfully moved into MOMtastic’s home and content should begin to roll out once again on a regular basis.

How I value MP cards
Before I even look at Red Myr and Light Hera Dragon, I want to establish my internal checklist for evaluating a MP card’s worth and this will greatly influence my opinions on whether or not to pursue a purchase.
When thinking of a purchase, I ask myself the following questions: Continue reading Red Myr and Light Hera Dragon Review
The Monster Bootcamp Part 2 Godfest will feature Ney’s debut and she will be the first Godfest Exclusive to have 5 distinct evolution paths. Ney is unique in that she is able to change her primary element, active, and leader skill to better suit your monster box. As a result, she will be the most flexible card to own as she can fulfill countless roles.
This article will provide an overview of her different evolution paths to better help you determine the best course of action.

Who is Ney?
Ney is a brand new 6-star Godfest Exclusive that has 5 unique evolution paths that will alter her usabiltiy across different teams. This also means she will be able to be fully utilized by essentially every single Monster Box and will be a major boon to own.
However, due to her rarity and 5 different forms, you will be somewhat pressured to collect them all. Thankfully, having a Godfest Exclusive with this much flexibility is a great thing as she will almost never go to waste. By comparison, Dark Kali is a phenomenal card to own, but her own viability is restricted to her narrow focus and not all players can fully capitalize on her strengths. As a result, all the Ney-sayers towards new Godfest Exclusives should be somewhat content with the introduction of Ney as she will not go to waste.
As a result, Ney will debut on my tier list as S. Continue reading Ney Review and Analysis
