Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale. 1 is bad. 3 is average. 5 is great.
Pretty nice, I guess. Makes more sense than something like Gordon who fought for room against Blaster Blade, Bedivere and something to search Blaster Blade like Conjurer of Mythril back in the day before it got power-crept out. Violinist can help against defense, particularly when you have Aerial Altmile out because he can revive Violinist in a pinch.
Oh yeah, I should also probably mention it can be searched with Hopesong Angel, but to be honest that’s not really going to make Violinist SUPER good considering the amount of stuff in Altmile already that can search it, but you could tech Hopesong I guess, play around with it a little.
As for the no face-up damage clause? Okay, admittedly that does hurt it a little, considering that basically means Violinist won’t really shine until Late Game, when you want to generally guard everything lest a Critical Trigger send you from 4 to dead in one shot, but once that actually is live, then you have several 10k shields in the back row at your disposal, which isn’t fun unless the opponent runs Kagero or something.
Slow, but functional. Don’t max though, because it’s not that amazing.
