I think the fact he's been limited to 1 speaks for himself. If you don't know why already, screw you, I'm not explaining again. As it is, couldn't hurt to run at 1 now.

[Doctoroid Refros]

Bushiroad overcompensated for Angel Feather being a laughingstock from Set 6 till G Set 3. Doctroid Refros seemed like a nice idea on paper: reset your damage to hopefully get better things in your damage zone to call or add to hand, and pump up certain units.

Problem was, now Angel Feather had reliable unflip without even needing countercharging PGs. You could not at any point starve Angels out of counterblast with Refros at 4, and it was even more foolish to attack their rearguards because they'd stay at nonlethal damage forever because of Raphael. (Rescue decks can't be starved either.) The real nail in the coffin was the stalling aspect of the deck: don't die, get your deck down to 10 cards or less to ensure you drew into Refros, then start spamming Refros until your opponent couldn't feasibly guard you because your columns were 100k or higher. (And then you would drive check a Refros, restanding said 100k units to further salt the wound.) This card ended up being toxic. Retire decks were Angel's only bad matchup, and that's if they burned all the Broken Hearts. I was surprised every time I beat G-Angels when I was not using a retire deck, cause I figured I'd just get stalled out and whomped after 30 minutes of waiting for them to finish resolving Refros effects.

Run your 1 copy, and sulk over your fallen OP status if you need to. Besides, Angels have two other stand triggers that will fill in the void without being straight-up busted.

As a 1-of, it's a 2.5/5 since it can't do its job efficiently anymore if you hardly run into it, but I'll rate it as if it was in its heyday. 

5/5
