    What is the strongest/weakest element?

    In your opinion, which element is the strongest and which is the weakest?
    So far I was think the strongest is a tossup between fire and dark, with water being the weakest.

    Water is probably the most lackluster element right now, yeah. It has strong defensive cards, but not much else.

    Fire tends to have strong attack cards, but weak defense. Sylvie is easily beaten by Decree, Marsha, or Raquillet. Miyabi is still a force to be reckoned with though.

    Wood has the strongest effects and will get buffed in the future to have cheaper/free mana cost. Anastasia and Muto in particular get huge buffs. There's also cards like Muriel, who can use Strength Sap for 2 cost, or Mutsuki, who permanently raises her allies' attack by 200 every time she's attacked.

    Light has a pretty solid lineup, though a lot of their stronger cards are rarer, like the OP Flora and Cera. Sakura is also getting buffed in the future.

    Dark is probably the strongest across all rarities. Natalie *was* the go-to haste card, since few people have Crow or EX Marsha, but Aryril has probably replaced her by now, due to costing half as much without losing as much power. Yuzuki is still ridiculously OP. Candella is also scary if her effect's in place. Anteret is slightly less weaker than Sylvie, though still susceptible to the same weaknesses. And Barbara is the strongest card in the game.

    Is this a relevant question? Unlike MtG (or rather, its colour mana system) it doesn't matter what elements your cards are unless you have specific, rare support cards (like Keyaki demanding high-end light cards). Ok, there are a few "do a little extra against specific element" skills but you don't build your whole deck around them. For example, Okita is a good metagame choice as the ideal 7 drop in many decks will be fire based. But if Okita doesn't show up on your 6 mana turn (or if you started second) then she's just another filler card. You just don't care what element a card is 98% of the time.

    When element crystal cards and the like get buffed, the question would be relevant in the future, though I guess that still largely depends on if you have enough of said element to justify building a deck around it.

    But if you were to stick with one element for the purpose of having them buff each other, wood seems to be the best bet.

    Like, on top of the wood crystal card, there's also Muto/Call of the Beast Lord, whose attack increases based on the number of wood cards on both sides of the field. I also have Hinoki, who summons the topmost wood card upon her death, so I could build a wood-centric deck in the future.

    On the other hand, people might have the EX cards that increase attack to all cards of X element upon being summoned/used to attack.

    Fire no doubt
    I chose light when i started it has some good cards but fire looks best
    but who's only going to use one set rather than the best of all 5 (or all 7 if u include traps etc)
