If you had 4 of these guys Max Skilled, could you infinitely Shuffle your board until all enemies die? :O
hamelin in reply to yopster89 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Or you tip the scales in your favour and use a 15% more skyfall orbs active, thereby greatly increasing the odds of skyfall and refreshed board combo's. If you put two of those on a team and have 4 max skilled maeda, then you could be looking at a new sort of system that relies solely on not-playing and only using the board refresh to do damage. Sounds like a plan to me.
yopster89 4 years ago ( 8.0.1 ) 
that is if u assume that u get a sky fall every time u use the skill just get 6 of them to be safe then loop to the end :)
bloodwars in reply to McSizzles 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
you're wrong, check the all mastering vids, he reshuffles too, it means a board wipe/re-fall and it gets rid of frozen orbs too.
OmastarBC 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
5 of him with either a Kushi or Anubis pal. Just saying. That way you can possibly get some sort of combo boost and just keep going for it.

I notice that this is the only Sengoku personality with a dissimilar set of awakenings. Everyone else is Row Enhance, Skillbind Resist, Haste, Row Enhance. Then again, good luck getting consistent light rows when trying to adhere to Maeda's leader skill.
Cornykova 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
That's because he isn't categorized under the Sengoku series, but the Samurai Gods ;-)

Also, Goemon is in the Sengoku series, not having the same Awakening system as the others (maybe because he's farmable)
By tenko 4 years ago ( 8.0.1 ) 
I think he's quite underrated. The new locked orbs mechanic means orb refreshers will be more valuable for newer dungeons*, and this guy is the best option on mono-light or light focused teams, such as Awoken Ra or LKali teams.

*Indigo and Ilsix's dungeons are two where this guy would shine.

Unlucky man's L. Kali. Here's why.

+Leader skill activates at 6 combos, like Kali
+Leader skill requires 4 orbs, like Kali (I would consider this greater than Kali bc it's like a DQXQ type leader skill)
+Dual Keiji team is 27.5625x ATK
+Keiji and Kali team is 31.5x ATK

-Worse Active
-Less Awokens
BiggestFan 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
I wouldn't go as far as saying unlucky mans LKali. While they have similar uses at first glance Keiji is a regular pantheon God, not GFE, and doesn't even have an UEvo yet. Now I'm not usually one for saying it's not fair to compare card A to card B because one has an awoken form and the other doesn't, blah blah. We play with the state of the game as is and compare cards' usefulness based on what we can do with the card right now.

But to say you're unlucky because you pulled Keiji instead of LKali isn't accurate because you don't know how useful Keiji will end up.

Also as many have pointed out on this page, his AS has a niche use against locked orbs. Is it useful enough to warrant a regular spot on most teams? Well, probably not yet. We'll see how common that mechanic becomes.

For leaders that don't require specific orb matches like Maeda or Hathor, shuffle can get you a desired board easily, so his active isn't really worse, it's just useful for different leaders.
By Alex 3 years ago ( 8.4.1 ) 
This LS is actually really good though....Pretty easy 27x multiplier, but no love for the card?
Valid 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Yeah I feel like he gets no love. With my Leader Okuninushi and a FL using this guy, easy x21 every trip, plus on last stages I active Muse skill x52.5. PADgasm.

I wasn't too excited when I first pulled him: good awakenings but not enough of them, below average stats. But the AS, especially when max, is huge as it clears poison/jammer/locked orbs, and also potentially gives 2 turns haste (1 guaranteed). Looks like a perfect candidate for skill inheritance, once levelled and awoken I may bind him to Awoken Sakuya.

Just rolled him on Directors Choice Carnival. Spectacularly unimpressed 😭😳😔😡😬😠😠😠😕
By Yoggernaut 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
I guess he could be useful for the new Kirin team as an insurance against orb troll
By Tirrinz 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
I watched a video of someone using him and after using reshuffle, he got matched orbs from the skyfall. The game appeared to count that as a free turn, because after the damage was done, his subs' skills became active. Could someone confirm this? I want to know if you get a skyfall orb match from his active, does it effectively reduce your subs' cooldowns by two turns?
BiggestFan 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
Matches from a reshuffle like samurai goblin and mastering also progress turns by 1 turn If they make a skyfall. So yes Keiji will net you two turns of skill advancement if his reshuffle gets a match.

As I happen to have just rolled a Keiji in the last Godfest I decided to test it in endless corridors and it definitely gives you two turns. Just like any reshuffle match, an additional turn goes by.

As an additional note, if you use an active like a damage boost, then use the reshuffle, the buff timer does not go down by one turn. I doubt this has many real game applications, but I tested using GZL and then Keiji, swept the floor with skyfall, and still had x2 attack on the next floor. I actually did over 1mil dmg with GZL and Liu Bei too because the skyfall gave me 6 combos, one of which was a tpa, and one of which was a 5heart combo. I was using Parvati. This kind of luck would never happen when I actually need it though.

Thank you, this is what I wanted to know. The poster of the video got back to me and confirmed this as well. There are so many hidden little mechanics in this game.

Also that second part about the damage buff not decreasing is interesting. I don't think these kinds of things are documented anywhere, so the player is just left to guess which elements of the game this "free turn" counts towards and which one it does not.

Additional note. Debuffs such as binds don't get reduced as a result of the free turn on your reshuffle.
Prncess@PF 4 years ago ( 8.1.1 ) 
His active skill isn't just reshuffle, it also has haste, which reduces your team's cooldowns by 1. Is that what you saw in the video?

Looks playful with Sakuya, either kali, or what about Nova?... F/L, balanced stats, God type, and a "Dashing" yet "Dandy" way to void orb trolling & locks.. imo he's worth the box space and mats (lower priority tho).. Tbc..

By Delnite 3 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Wasn't happy when I rolled just now. Then I started thinking, I run Egyptian almost exclusively. Think I'll run him behind Hathor. She's tough to run when the trolling starts.
SirOsis>>s 3 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Yup, good trolling nullifier panic active.

Also, not a terrible friend for my kushi lead. I routinely hit 6-8 combos, and hitting four colours for the extra 1.5xatk should be pretty regular.

So, if this guy is maxed, awoken and full of eggs, he'll do nicely once I get down lower on the friend list.

I think you're confusing perseph and izanami
Thaddeus in reply to Riven 3 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
I too thought the same thing when I first saw a D/R female as a material for Awoken Yomi, but that is not the case. D/R Persephone can possibly be confused with D/R Izanami, who is farmable and an evolution material.

So far REM monsters haven't been used as evolution material, and if GungHo appreciates positive customer feedback, then there will never be evo mat REMs.

There's actually one that is. Persephone. The Dark/Red version can be a material. I forgot to who but I thought it was BS that it was like that.
