I can’t really decide on what team I should use. There’s just too
many different teams that can play well together. Keep in mind that I haven’t been playing the game for a really long time (I started in January) and the competition down here is decent at best, so my thoughts and opinions might be off or dated or whatever. Here are I what I think are the best teams for Magneto.
Magneto/Storm/Psylocke - Psylocke is still the best setup assist for Magneto and Storm also benefits from her well. Plus, you can
sneak an occasional magnetic tempest XX hailstorm. This team can be played as a rushdown or a somewhat turtle team, especially agianst teams with characters who have slow recovery
times on their moves, such as Captain Commando. On the other hand, this team does not take damage well, and that is what is preventing me from using this team as my main team.
Magneto/Cable/Psylocke - For the most part, same as MSP but
instead we have Cable, which benefits immensely off Psylocke’s assist. Easy AHVBs and IMO is a great arcade team that can do well against almost any other team.
Magneto/Sentinel teams - Any of these teams holds their own
because they have speed, great combo ability, including DHCs, and can take damage better than Magneto/Psylocke teams. Assuming you have either Storm or Cable, I think any decent player can achieve a good amount of success with these teams. If Cable is used, he should be on anti-air assist, which helps alot against Sentinel in fly mode. I don’t really think any of Storm’s assist are great, but her projectile assist is a decent setup assist
Also, I need some good advice on how to play against Sentinel with Magneto, because he’s basically the only character that gives
me any serious problems, and I’d also like to know what I should
do in mirror matches for these teams. Thanks!
