    Free roll: Phenom
    Bargain: Lotta
    7* machine: Eva

    Happy for Phenom, bought the 7* package just in case I could get an "easy" Mariel too. Eva has a niche active, but I don't think it will really be useful since the rainbow activation is not guaranteed, nothing is guaranteed besides the FUA actually so...

    Keeping my stones for FF.

    Honestly, there aren't too many things I really want from this. I'm just going to save my stones for FF since I'll get more value out of that.

    Welp, I've been throwing all my stones at the SGF, but I accidentally tapped on this REM just once and got Theor. That is some juicy trade fodder.

    Wait, does Lotta's active carry forward on sweep? Am I seeing this correctly?!

    Yes it does. Very few applications, but those applications are going to be fun. Note that team building is not that easy all the time as you need to have a lot of HP (it's all fine in COOP though).

    In Defense of Draconic Orchestra - while the most of the bottom two tiers are terrible (Lotta and debatably Enola being exceptions), the 7 star cards are pretty amazing. I rolled some nice cards from recent collabs like Shaman King and I have some other solid leads like DKarin, DRaizer, DZeta and DMeta, but my two favorite leads since the first day of this REM have been Mariel and Lutina. I was actually playing a lot less in recent weeks and I'm back to burning most of my stamina since rolling them.

    Mariel is often accused of being a crappy DKarin, but I've been getting a lot more mileage off my main's Mariel than my alt's DKarin. Keep in mind that I haven't used her in any of the arenas, but I did recently clear all the floors of Hera Nyx and the Numens with some pretty shoddy orb manipulation skills. She's actually ridiculously awesome:
    -I almost never see boards that that prevent me from using her leader skill, so I rarely use actives.
    -Her 400x attack multiplier is obscenely strong.
    -With SA she's a triple VDP card, which is still pretty rare these days and extremely useful (boss hp keeps going up and VDP actives take way too long to charge in most dungeons).
    -Her teambuilding is extremely flexible - You get her full multiplier for any card with a water or light attribute.
    -And I can usually get away without slotting in Mel because of Mariel's active, which gives you a kill board and several turns of Kuroyuri style healing. While you can't loop her with just Mariel leads, she can be up often enough to save your butt when needed and you can often get away with relying on high rcv subs the rest of the time. I've replaced Mel with Lutina for high rcv, orb unlock awakenings, 7cs, and to carry whatever active I happen to need. Initially I was hesitant and gave her a chocolate box, but now she's carrying an enhance. My team has been getting by without heart OE awakenings.

    On that note, Lutina is also great:
    -She's a 506.25x glass cannon lead (small shield, no hp or rcv multi) with a leader skill that's surprisingly easy to activate-low combo requirement and she brings her own 1 cd active for the active use clause of her leader skill. And she has no sub restrictions.
    -As a sub, she has an incredible offensive kit that includes 2 7cs for damage, L unlock for locked orbs, guard break, and a short cd active for carrying actives. She can also loop water skyfall.

    I've been finding Phenom (who is on my alt) a little clunky and just straight up don't have the skills for a time-restricted lead like Theor, so I don't have much to say about either of them or Eva (who I haven't rolled on either account). The rates are still bad and I'm not advocating trading for Lutina or Mariel, but I just thought I'd mention that they're both amazing and easily some of my favorite new cards that I've rolled in years.

    I want Lutina a lot. I like Phenom. I just wish she did a little more damage at 6 orbs, and blue is surprisingly hard to cover with a really good sub. Still fun to play. I wonder if Mariel XKarin is worth trying out.

    That's what I've been running in co-op because my accounts haven't been rolling many compatible leads lately :) I have a knack for forgetting that I'm not supposed to match 5 water or 5 light during my alt's (the Karin team's) turn, but the team works really well otherwise. Karin's leader skill compensates well for the loss of Mariel's active and Campus Uruka's TEs, and I like not having a second copy of Karin's skill.

    Unless you're running A5, you can generally clear content with a lot of different leads. Pick a lead you enjoy, and run with it. Just bear in mind that you may not be able to use it in a few weeks, unless you have a dupe.

    Thinking about trading for Mariel using cards below. the last spot could be Echidna-Sara or Saline or Kanna (second one). Any suggestion? Thanks in advance!

    Don't trade away your dupes. Stronger leader only last for a while but great subs lasts for a long long time.

    Thanks for your advice. Very pricey for trading and wasn’t sure if it’s the right move. Never traded any card before. Rethink a couple time and still can’t do it. Think about buy a pack 85 stone but seem too much for this Mariel.

    I got 2 of each Gold Egg, and 3 of Dolq. I wanted Phenom for the unique active and would make a great sub to hold Akuma beads with also having 1 of each resist. I ended up getting Mariel which is really nice.
