Under Night In-Birth/UNICLR/Merkava
He fears. Every day, the curse that permeates through his body grows stronger.
A mysterious man(?) who has fallen into the corruption of a Void -- thought to be the failed shadows of Re-Births. Many are fascinated with its form of existence most recently a woman named Hilda has been pestering Merkava quite thoroughly. On this Hollow Night, many In-Births gather, and something doesn't feel quite right. "Heh, perfect..." He'll have plenty of victims to satisfy him. The hunt will go on.
A savage beast that only knows how to hunt the scent of its prey.
Your main goal as Merkava is to keep your opponent guessing where and when you're going to strike. Merkava's big moves allow him to be minus at ranges where the opponent can't safely challenge him, then take back his turn when the opponent hesitates. Reward from this playstyle is fairly low until Merkava has Vorpal, which means Merkava has the choice of playing for resources or mixing it up by going in and trying hit the opponent with his better starters. In order to get the most out of this character, you will need to alternate between keeping your opponent out and punishing their attempts at taking their turn.
