Hey everyone! Small changes from Game8 this week: they have demoted our One True God Anubis down to A tier possibly catching on to the fact that Anubis has no shield nor HP multiplier and is too squishy in the Alt Arena Meta. Also the Split Ult DKali has been added to A tier. I have made some predictions of her from my previous post, and I'll touch upon it again right now. She is indeed a tanky lead similar to RaDra in the past, and has 2 7c to accompany her firepower. Also, more likely than not, DKali being a relatively old GFE means people will already have her collecting dust in her box. She can be a respectable and maybe refreshing lead to turn to.
Also one thing with Game8 is that they love to have these ninja additions. Really makes me doubt whether I've actually read it correctly. Anyway, because of Anubis's demotion down to A tier from S, Light Ideal has suddenly came back to S tier to take Anubis's spot!? And they have no mentions of her in their tier list change log... So as a result, Light Ideal jumps up two rankings on our Aggregate list.
Finally, Full Metal Alchemist collab cards have been revealed! It should be up on the usual places (PADX, Facebook PAD groups, Reddit). The collab is probably disappointing to veterans and whales alike, as there is no real "meta-changing" cards in the REM. I am pleased that they GungHo has decided to put the Skill Charge awakening onto 2 of the cards in the REM; but all in all, the cards don't have good Leader Skills to stand out, and is going to be subs/assists at best.
Edward probably can be put in Yog teams or even just light-based teams for burst, but his active is too long for it's worth. Maybe it's to balance out his Skill Charge awakening. Alphonse notably can function in rainbow teams with a decent active.
I can't say too much however; maybe JP players will find a way to showcase them in new ways when they hit the JP server next Monday.
Until then, Happy PADing!

Cards you own that are not on these Tier Lists are not automatically nonviable, and cards you own that are on these Tier Lists are not automatically viable.
These tier lists assume BEST subs (often hard-to-acquire GFEs/collab cards) tackling hard dungeons (Arena 3, 3-Player Rushes, ALT Arena/Arena 4). Therefore, their uses largely depend on your box, your progression in PAD, and personal puzzling/comboing skills.
