Although not among the top tiers in Reverse 1999, Matilda can be considered a great overall offensive support given her ability to fill in on a wide array of compositions, deal good damage, and apply Confusion to targets (while Confused, targets are 25% more prone to receiving Crits).

But how should you build her? Here’s the best Matilda build in Reverse 1999, as well as the best team compositions for her.

The Best Psychubes for Matilda in Reverse 1999

The best Psychube for Matilda in Reverse 1999 is the 6-star Thunderous Applause. Thunderous Applause is my main pick for her given how it will increase her Critical Rate by 16% (at level 60) as well as increase the Critical DMG of both Work of Genius and Instant of Prediction by 16/32%.

If using Thunderous Applause is not an option for you, Brave New World would be our main pick. Brave New World will offer Matilda an 18% increase in Ultimate Might at level 60, as well as a 20/40% boost in Incantation Might for any attack she performs following her Ultimate.

Best 5-Star Psychube for Matilda

The best 5-star Psychubes for Matilda are Tomorrow Also and An Afternoon Nap. Given how the latter will only become an option if you raise her Portrait level to at least 3 —which will increase the Critical Rate offered by her first Insight to 31%— Tomorrow Also will be my main pick given its 20% Critical Damage increase and how it will increase her Ultimate Critical Rate by 10/20%.

An Afternoon Nap will increase her Critical Rate by 13% while also allowing her to gain a 3% Critical Damage (max 4-8 stacks) after scoring a Crit from a single target attack.

Reverse 1999 Best Matilda Team Compositions

Taking into account how she has in her ability to apply Confusion her biggest strength, the best team composition for Matilda will feature her as a focused debuffer, either Regulus, Charlie, or Lylia as a main DPS, and an aggressive healer like Dikke.

This composition is perfect for Matilda as her Confusion debuff will allow any of the mentioned main damage dealers to score easy Criticals. Dikke will also fit the team like a glove given her ability to, apart from healing efficiently, deal a great deal of damage as a secondary DPS.

The Best F2P Team Composition for Matilda

The best F2P team for Matilda features her as a main debuffer, Eagle as a DPS, and either Dikke or La Source as healers. As healers are more of a commodity in the early game stages, using a team featuring Eagle, Matilda, and Sonetto can also work extremely well given the latter’s ability to provide constant team-wide buffs.

For the fourth slot on both the regular and F2P compositions, we recommend that you use a secondary DPS.
