Name: Mister Sinister (Nathaniel Essex)
MSFN Score: 90.83
Where to Farm?: Premium Orb, Mega Orb
MSFN Thoughts: I hate fighting against Mister Sinister in Arena. The worst is when he clones my Phoenix. I do enjoy that he has a unique kit and play style. Recommended for end game players as he is not really farm-able. Mister Sinister is fantastic in Arena, his Marauders team is great on War defense, and you can successfully plug him in on any team. I do recommend at least upgrading one of his abilities to T4 so his clone can benefit
