Inari and Mitsuko - Anchor’s thoughts

Mitsuko’s ability essentially breaks down to bad Guin minus the heals to help her sustain. She will be an okay tank on the basis of her stat line and the fact that mana hate is always a good thing, but what makes a great tank is either a special that goes off reliably and makes a giant impact on the board or a tank that can continuously absorb damage while the others build their specials and do the dirty work. Without the heals to keep her alive longer I’m not particularly sanguine about the amount of damage she can absorb, nor do I think that if her ability goes off once and she dies that she has made a significant impact.

Yes, she punishes running a blue stack against her (sort of, she does nothing to prevent tile death), but even accepting that as gospel just means that you stack against whichever other hero you are most worried about. If you’re not running blues, her ability doesn’t hit hard enough to be a major concern and the mana loss will be more of a nuisance than a threat.
