Mirage special tactics 

Neutral game

The Scythe has a powerful control over the flow of the game. Aerial combat can and will juggle opponents around using the grabs of the weapons, enabling a superior control over the opponent positioning. Play around the recovery and the down air to move the enemy around and use neutral light and side light to start a short combo.

During the neutral game your main objective should be to push the enemy offstage and gain an advantage. The spear has a perfect hit and run style that can achieve it easily. Play around short combos, using the side light or the neutral light to start them and throw the enemy offstage. You can then proceed to edgeguard using the recovery.

Offstage Game

Mirage has great offstage thanks to the mobility and the juggle potential of her weapons. The scythe has powerful aerial combat, mostly due to the position manipulation of the weapon.
