Any strategies for Amari?
What exactly are you trying to achieve or having trouble with?
On average, a normal Combat roll for Val and Amiri is the same.
If an average boost i needed: Val can recharge a weapon with no loss of cards; Amiri has to discard her weapon - but she also has 5 of them, with high chance of having at least 2 of them in her hand at any given time (so she's ditching a useless card)
If a great boost is needed: Amiri can discard weapon AND bury another card for extra d10; Val... he's kinda stuck with recharging his weapon.
And this is al before get into details like:
- Amiri's Move power and her Move ANother upgrade
- Amiri having d6 Wisdom AND Survival (which come up often enough), and Val being stuck with Wisdom d4
- Amiri having greater benefit from combat blessings (d12 vs Val's d10)
So, a lot of the judgement of Amiri vs. Valeros will depend on your party numbers and composition, but I don't think she's inferior, let alone "extremely weak" compared to Val, and actually *personally* I'd always pick her before Val as I consider her advantages better than his.
(EDIT: Also, you speak about Val's recharge giving back his health. Actually, no one benefits from having HIGH health, you just need it to be HIGH ENOUGH to win the the game. Val and Amiri are both slow deck-cyclers, so for me that weapon going at the bottom of Val's deck? It's just as lost and useless as if Amiri discards it.)
