I'm trying to make an FPC half for ELO and I read in various card comments that we don't really see SOA that often. However, when I play ELO, I seem to encounter GHEIST pretty often. Do you think Nakata is still a good addition to my deck?
Depends on what else you're planning on playing. He's not bad, but if there's a better anti-soa in the other half, stick to Shifou.
Do you think a half with both Nakata and Shifou would work?
And two from Futoshi Ld, Chan, Kusuri and Marlysa Cr.
I have Futoshi Ld, but I have Heitachi as the current 4* card in the half. Who's better?
Depends on what's in the other half.
Nakata is alright, and personally I think he's a great card, but it's hard not to use Shifou and Zhu Tang when you have the space for two FPC 3*, and after that I prefer Ralph. Heitachi is solid, but I don't see a point in using him this week with Marina and Saki banned.
Nakata is just so so, he is solid, but solidness is not something that FPC is lack of. Shifou, Heitachi, Futoshi Ld all are good vs SOA. Zhu Tang is not too bad vs SOA as well, providing that you don't throw him to Yookie.
For the question Heitachi and Futoshi which is better, I think both of them are good, and Fei tied with their level as well, I use to run both of them in the same deck, with Shifou and Kusuri, so you can change among them if you don't like the 5 star from FPC.
