Stryfe Abyss team for the future. He looks crazy powerful!

For abyss easy path im thinking of this team.

Stryfe
Apocolypse
Symbiote supreme/Doom
Human torch
Nick Fury (this is the team spot I'm 100% unsure of)

I feel like stryfe could get through the abyss easy path (excluding collector) with less revives than Ægon since he looks like he can solo more fights, but for the collector i think Ægon would take the lead. Then again I haven't seen stryfe against the collector yet.

Gimme your team ideas, there's a good amount of combinations, so I wonder what the best one is?

    Once you are past Thing you need
    1 revive vs Omega to make Stryfe a horseman. So I can see it working 🤔

    Is this assuming you will get Stryfe?

    Since some people are saying Stryfe will be unpractical for abyss since he relies on synergies I wanted to see if thats really the case in this discussion. In my opinion I think Stryfe really only needs 1 synergy (apocolypse) and since you have 1 free spot in an abyss team, it should work out perfectly in theory.
    Now you gotta test your hypothesis

    Once you say “except Collector”, the whole thing is meaningless. Aegon is only really good for collector. And he is REALLY good for collector. So in order to replace Aegon, he needs to kill collector better than Aegon. Many other champs can substitute for Aegon on the paths

    "Then again I haven't seen stryfe against the collector yet" who knows stryfe does hit really hard. I cant tell 100% if he's going to be what taters power index indicates or what everyone else says. But im leaning towards him ending up very good not like airwalker or moleman.

    I'd bench NF and put in Magneto. Only HT will benefit from his attack synergy.

    Now that I think about it aside from mephisto where else is HT a must have?

    Even if its just 1 fight where he is absolutely needed that fight is terrible with the other champs if u don't have him.

    You're really sticking to your heimdall thing huh? He's not needed and he's only on the team since there's a free spot. A free synergy spot that you can use any synergy you want like bringing in apoc for stryfe

    Apoc can do that fight too albeit not as well as torch.

    Until someone got him and test him, otherwise it is just empty discussion. Anyway the crystal is here for sale and I think someone can get him and answer you soon.

    I never brought Heimdall in any of the 5 abyss paths and was fine unit wise

    the thing is you can’t solo most fights especially with high health pool fights because of the timer where the opponent will get unstoppable and unblockable. i did solo some cosmic fights i think and that’s only because their health pool were not as much as the fights that you would essentially use aegon

    I Agree with @Haji_Saab

    The issue with abyss is not necessarily not having an Aegon for paths it’s really just that collector fight that can be an extra 1k unit a run.

    Still those fights you were able to solo aegon just can't unless maybe you have a 6* r3 and do the heavy trick very single time. Even then I dont think it would be a solo.

    I'd recommend checking out Kam's series of Tweets on Stryfe: http://www.twitter.com/kamMCOC

    He did an entire Abyss path, including the Collector, with Stryfe + Team to test his viability

    That was a really great thread, thanks for that

    Don't need a stryfe as I have aegon, just theory crafting

    As per Kam, not a good option for collector .. so Aegon stays in abyss line up ... I wish someone could rival him in his niche... personally, I think every niche should have 4 or 5 champs otherwise it becomes too much of a lotto

    4-5 makes it less of a niche but 3 would be nice. It's crazy that there is content that is doable with just one champion otherwise you better have a deep wallet.
