well personally, my grade 3 line up is something like this..
2x Immortal Skull
1x Spirit Exceed
1x Monster Frank
Monster frank is good, cause if u misride, let yourself take dmg, use zombie and evil shade/ruin shade to mill it into grave, then superior ride, same goes for spirit exceed.
Since you are playing 4 chappies, then my suggestion is that you play more spirit exceed, maybe 2. because u can drop spirit exceed/samurai spirit into the drop zone very easily. and samurai spirit can be called from drop zone, so its not a problem, just take 1 dmg. LOL
Then, the only problem now is the knight spirit, if you draw in, just keep in ur hand and call it, then you can superior ride alr, this also gives you plus 3 soul, much faster for baskirk to use effect
