    They're both T1/T2 units, and are extremely viable if you want a blue Distant Counter unit.

    B-Lucina has meh defense, but she's high hp, high speed and high attack, with speed debuffs at budget, so she likely won't be doubled by ranged, and she can double most melee. Essentially you'd be making a slightly squishier Blue Ryoma. Alternatively , you could give to B-Ike to make Green Ryoma, or to plain Ike for poor man's Ryoma.

    Giving it to Effie means you lose Death Blow, and her almost guaranteed OHKOs, but if you max out Wary Fighter, give her a quick loading special like Bonfire, and threaten attack/def for C slot, you can turn her into a much beefier version of Blue Hector.

    Some other units to think about:
    Azura or Olivia for a weird Dancer/Ryoma combo
    High speed high defense archers like Takumi so they can mow down melee who strike first

    It really depends on what team you're running for arena.

    Effie, Zephiel, Camilla, Sheena, Palla, Titania all want distant counter for their ideal builds. However, the vast majority of those are all emblem based, primarily armor emblem or flier emblem. Outside of Effie, if you're not running armor or flier emblem, keep the DC for a future unit.

    Yeah, i already have a dc Sheena and Camilla.

    I was really tempted to use it on Lucina because, imo, she's just a better Sheena, but I've gone a Fortress D and QR build instead and I'm holding onto the Hector for now.

    I mean, winning is easy. Have you dropped a unit though?

    I've been bouncing between 17/18 for weeks. It's a struggle to make an immortal team that can also kill shit before they kill one of yours - esp with all the kamikaze magedancing teams...

    Olivia will occasionally get ganked when I throw her into a nest of blues for a suicide Dance on B-Ike or Effie, but it's generally intentional. Everybody else usually survives.

    Yeah. I figured. I need perfect runs though to increase in rank. Losing even one unit is like an 80pt ding, at which point I just reset.

    Just as I was thinking about giving my Brave Lucina one of my two Steady Breath, I pulled Ike from the latest banner and gave him it and QR...

    Shit's good man, esp when i combine him with brave Lucina and ally them. Pretty similar to Ryoma and the exact same build I wanted to try with him, who has more speed, but is weaker defensively.

    Actually, they're so similar that I'm wondering if I should just use my other Steady Breath on my Horse Emblem Xander or (more likely) Camus...

    Edit: derp, just found out only infantry and armour can use. Black Knight then?
