Best Commander Pairings for Sun Tzu

AOE Nuker (stacking damage on a large scale)

Yi + Sun Tzu: Using archer or mix troop.

Due to this pairing, this couple has the ability to deal AOE damage only after couple Yi + Mehmed but it doesn’t have much ability to tank. So that the goals of enemy are trying to move and choosing a good location to avoid damage.

Mehmed + Sun Tzu: This pair use archer, cavalry or mix troop.

This is another potential nuker AOE pair with massive damage in group battles. Like pair Yi + Sun Tzu, this pair doesn’t have ability to tank.

Kusunoki + Sun Tzu: Use cavalry or mix troop.

This is a quite great choice for Epic commander pair.  The size of Kusunoki’s fan-shaped is smaller than Sun Tzu, so that you should choose a good location in the battle.

Baibars + Sun Tzu: Use cavalry or mix troop.

This paring is quite interesting, Baibars has great damage so this is suitable with passive skills of Sun Tzu. In this pair, Sun Tzu should be a primary commander.

Sun Tzu can pair with other cavalry commanders such as Mundeok, Kusu, CM, RC…
