Speedy Player Phase Micaiah
With the Darting Blow seal, anyone with mediocre speed can now be speedy on player phase.
Here is one example I am considering: a +Spd Micaiah. I was thinking about it a while back but didn't think she could quite get enough speed to make it worth it until now. I think a speedy Micaiah works well when battling infantry and fliers because she doesn't rely solely on effective damage to be effective. So I guess it makes her more for general use.
The obvious alternative to this is brash assault, but it doesn't work if the opponent cannot counterattack, and requires being below 50% hp. A lot of the time I have a hard time pulling these conditions off.
What do you guys think?
I have the desperation/brash assault combo on my Micaiah. I don’t have a problem with the activation, but I do see feel she’s a little limited in her role. Great against distant counter armors and all ranged units, especially ranged calvary, but really limited against who she can’t double - fliers who are speedy and usually have high res (and rarely have DC) and infantry who tend to be too speedy to double. So I like your build!
My only issue would be that it seems like a lot of units could make good use of the darting blow seal. Conversely, brash assault is kind of an iffy seal so I’m happy to have it live on Micaiah, who makes really good use of it because of her low HP and unique sacrifice skill.
