I'm actually starting to get some good use out of 236K, and even 1B. Maybe IRM isn't completely crazy.

Against NM, Voldo, Asta, Cervy and Xiba I'm going to be including a good bit of 6B4 and 236K. It can make them think twice about some of their spacing tools. I'm finding this tactic surprisingly safe too.

236K's biggest downside is the startup time. Its TC can go under mids, the animation can make lows whiff, and it leads into tons of damage and is next to impossible to punish when the cancels are mixed around enough. IRM knows his stuff.

Against Pyrrah, 236K can do terrible things to her if she tries to press at slight disadvantage. Or if she likes that aGI.

B+K is his best move, but I just wanted to remind people quick that it is replaceable in his game. Anyone who wants to play Maxi without the move can pull it off and be very good.

And stop promoting generic pokes in the top tens. People know about 2A without looking at your shit. lol

3K
WR B+K
1K
44B
44K
2A
66B
1B
BL KK
6A+B

Kinda hard to pick just 10 though, there are many others that could make the list like B+K JF, 4B, 33A, 66K and FC3AAA

Given Maxi's AA and BB aren't usually good things to be doing, it's worth emphasizing generic pokes with maxi.

B+K sets apart normal maxi's and the Lords of the char. you are missing out on so much free dmg if you dont have B+K JF. i mean you gonna whiff punish with 6A+B or BE but B+K does 2x the dmg and meterless es 2 gud

Or you could whiff punish with 66B for like 10 less damage and no risk of dropping a JF. B+K isn't impractical but it's also not essential.

There is no risk of dropping shit
Then why do you drop B+K's JF so often? :^)
B+k is essential if u want half life meter less whiff
punishes
It's like 13 more damage than the meterless 66B combo.
it has less risk than dropping a 66B whiff punish
True, but 66B has infinite range, and 66B is much safer on block than B+K, B+K's string continuation ``mixup'' notwithstanding.
