Agree that Kage will be better for more than Kunchen.
But … I don’t think I can agree with the emblems Rigard replacing Kunchens position thing. As a flank sure. But not as a tank.
I like Kunchen as a tank. But I would not ever use Rigard as a tank. His special is way too passive and not threatening at all when fired early in the match.
Rigard heals and cleanses… Ok so what?
Kunchen heals, cleanses, is immune to standard defense drops, buffs his defense against holy, AND drops enemy defense!!! That’s legitimately threatening to the offensive team.
I love Rigard but no way would I ever use him as a tank. Flank, sure. Even wing I’ll put him there in certain teams. But he’s way to passive for the tank position, his special gives a free pass to your opponent to send tiles down his way to charge special skills.
Just my two cents based on my experience fighting Rigard tanks
