Hello everyone and welcome to my 158th analysis, this time featuring Samael the Fever Scatterer.
Overview: This monster always resided in the shadow of Plague Carrier, and for two very simple reasons; worse Base Speed, and a way worse turn transfer. However, he isn't a monster to be underestimated, as he has almost all of the ridiculous flexibility his superior form possesses and thus can find himself fitting in any team. What's more, Fever Scatterer can capitalize on his higher Base Strength and the fact that his turn transfer skill gives Double Damage instead of Damage Boost to be a very good attacker that also has great status control. Bulwark is one of the most powerful Traits in this game, allowing Samael to very effectively dodge crucial status effects, particularly deny effects. Even though roadblocks like monsters on his power level and Anticipation monsters have arisen, they were never enough to truly erase Samael from his spot in the metagame.

Rank 0:
Moves:
-Pain Scourge
-Smallpox Epidemy
-Necromantic Secrets
-Black Sickness
Runes: 3 Speed/3 Team Speed
Mutant Rune options: Speed&Life, Team Speed&Team Life
Relics: Amulets and Shields

Build Explanation:
Pain Scourge is Fever Scatterer's most useful attack at this point; it is a Base 40 Dark AOE that Dazes and removes the buffs of all enemies while removing the debuff of all allies. It is useful against Mega Taunt casters or when the game reaches a stage and buffs/debuffs start going all around the place. Smallpox Epidemy applies Sunburn and Blind to the target, and this is not only a powerful attack, but it can also be used to get a soft deny on the target since its precision will be lowered significantly. Necromantic Secrets is a revival move, which is extremely useful. Lastly, Black Sickness counters CD Activation, and is a spammable buff removal + Daze.
3 Speed is useful to use Pain Scourge before your denier moves to rid the enemy team of Mega Taunt and/or Evasion, but this spread's use is not too great yet. Instead, Samael makes for a great Team Speed carrier with his current moveset. For Mutant Runes, Life Mutations are the most useful options.

Rank 1: Fever Scatterer learns "Unholy Resurrect" at this level, a move that revives an ally with 100% Life.
Moves:
-Pain Scourge
-Smallpox Epidemy
-Unholy Resurrect
-Black Sickness
Runes and Mutant Runes are the same as listed above.

Build Explanation:
The same game plan, but with a 100% Life resurrect instead of a 50% one.

Rank 2: Fever Scatterer learns "Pestilence" at this level, a 0 Stamina, AOE Dark move that removes all buffs from targets, followed by applying Poison, Bleed and Special Weakness to them.
Moves:
-Pain Scourge
-Smallpox Epidemy/Black Sickness
-Unholy Resurrect
-Pestilence
Runes and Mutant Runes are the same as listed above.

Build Explanation:
Pestilence is a strong buff control tool that can be used even after getting drained of Stamina. Not only this, but Special Weakness is useful since your monsters are likely to have this element of attack, which strengthens them.

Rank 3: Fever Scatterer learns "Samael Soldier" at this level, a move that gives the target ally 50% Stamina, Double Damage and an extra turn.

(Support)
Moves:
-Pain Scourge
-Samael Soldier
-Smallpox Epidemy/Pestilence/Black Sickness
-Unholy Resurrect/Pestilence
Runes: 3 Speed/3 Team Speed
Mutant Rune options: Speed&Life, Team Speed&Team Life

Build Explanation:
Samael Soldier is a very flexible move that can not only boost the power of attackers, but it can also be used to accelerate a monster's CDs, restore Stamina to an ally should they need it, or to allow a slower monster to move right after Samael.

(Attacker)
Moves:
-Samael Soldier
-Pain Scourge
-Smallpox Epidemy
-Pestilence/Unholy Resurrect/Black Sickness
Runes: 2 Strength 1 Speed
Mutant Rune options: Strength&Life, Speed&Life

Build Explanation:
Samael Soldier's Double Damage boost makes this more threatening to the average team than Plague Carrier's Attacker set. Smallpox Epidemy will greatly hurt or straight up kill the target most of the time after Samael Soldier, and Pain Scourge will put heavy dents in the enemy team. This set can still function well as a support too, since it possesses the same moves as Support, for the most part.
2 Strength 1 Speed with Life Mutations is the standard attacker spread.

Teammate Options: The sheer utility Samael provides makes him a great fit on any team. However, you need Samael Soldier to be a game changing skill, so you should preferably have either a monster with AOE deny skills or an extra turn spammer like Prince Charmless that can deny the enemies with increased Precision or end the game, respectively, alongside the 3 Speed spread. The attacker set works like any other normal attacker does and does not have any unique interactions, besides the Skill Mirror interaction with turn transfer attacks, as they are reflected back to the caster to get an extra turn on the user as well.

Countering Samael the Fever Scatterer: Anticipation is key in staving off Samael, since the Trait will allow you to interrupt the deadly outcomes of Samael Soldier. Other than this, CD Activation completely ruins Samael, so monsters like Pierceid can exploit this weakness. Stamina Drain works against this form of Samael.
