Counterpoke with armoured DB2 at all times.
Putting trait out depends on certain matchups I feel. Sometimes it's better to cash it out for zoning and in other times you might feel better doing it in neutral in preparation for a rushdown character in order to even out the up close game.Yeah I just tried some recently, labbing. Seems like a good way to create some pressure and get some free combo without bar (even though he builds meter like crazy). My only problem is the ankh is most useful with trait, which is not always available... but i guess thats the whole i idea, if they get close enough whip it out, send them full screen, keep them away, and by the time they get back or you want to go in you have trait again.
Like Superman can punish DB2 but not in trait I believe. It's -8 regular and something like -2 in trait I thought.
