So, Mysterious Idol X Alter is our second AoE Quick welfare in a row. It is somewhat rare to get back-to-back welfares who fill basically the same role, and it largely works out to MIXA’s detriment. Relative to her immediate predecessor, Kiichi Hogen, MIXA initially appears to be something of a sidegrade. They have exactly the same deck and remarkably similar kits, but with a few key distinctions: notably, MIXA gets better cards, higher burst damage, and a pair of damage niches, in exchange for having less reliable sustained damage, lower NP refund, no battery, and—perhaps most importantly—no class advantage context. Altogether this makes her effectively a worse Hogen. Character preference aside, a player would invest in both for similar reasons, and Hogen provides higher returns overall. In a hypothetical situation where Hogen was an old welfare who was inaccessible to newer players, this might be an acceptable situation. As it stands, though, most players in a position to get MIXA probably already have Hogen or are too new to get particularly good use out of what MIXA offers, which leaves her as a Servant without a purpose. She’s neat in that she’s our first welfare Foreigner, but there’s not really anything she provides that other Servants can’t accomplish more effectively, even at the same level of investment.
