Unless you already had Summer Linde. Pulling a seasonal before it's stuck during its month forever is a victory.I summoned from The mythic hero banner today and got every single other colorless 5 star apart from Duma and I'm slightly mad right now
I think these characters, who all also have votes available for CYL, are all slam dunks.
-Mila, obviously. She'll probably be Astra to compliment Duma's Anima.
-Naga. It'd own if they mixed her Awakening design with her FE4 dragon depiction. Light hero?
-Yune. Actual Yune, not just Micaiah in her Light Priestess outfit. Dark Hero, probably?
-Ashera. Also light, probably.
-Athos. The living legend, one of the big heroes of Elibe. Easy Anima.
-Anankos. Again could be anything. Has a human design to go with his dragon form.
-Ashunera. I dunno if they'd go with Yune, Ashera AND Ashunera in one go, though. Maybe for Super Mythically Legendary Heroes next year.
-Hel. She's literally a goddess! She is absolutely going to the Mythic pool if her daughter Eir is here.
Then we have god-adjacent characters we can go with like:
-Dheginsea. He's part of that big picture with Altina & Soan, incidentally
-Nagi. I'm not sure they'd ever waste a Mythic slot on Nagi of all people, though.
-Medeus. Earth Dragons are shown as a big threat, I think he's about on the level of Duma & Mila even if he's not worshipped as a god. I mean you need like 3 different things to finally seal him away. Twice. IMO they could get away with Earth Dragon Medeus being a Legendary Hero and Shadow Dragon Medeus being a Mythic.
-Lilith. Daughter of Anankos, so she could get in like Eir could I suppose.
& I'm sure there's some others I'm forgetting. They could, sigh, also go with another Corrin alt, Zelgius alt, things like that. I guess now's a good a time to mention that "Grima", as titled "Grima", is in the CYL. So they could probably sneak in another Grima that way and have him act as a manakete that transforms into "The Creation" from SOV.
After that, the game does have a number of other god-like characters but idk if they're really eligible:
-Elibe has another 3 of its Legends. Roland, Bramimond, Durban. You couldn't vote for any of them, though, so I'm not sure they'll go with any of them?
-Speaking of, did you know that Elimine, another of the Elibe Legends, does have a canon appearence? She shows up in, of all things, the Double Dash Demo Disc that let you connect to FE7 and get a bunch of gifts. Still couldn't vote for her, though.
-Altina, as noted before. It's a crying shame she's otherwise ignored.
-Soan, the lion laguz there, also counts. But he has even less going on than Altina, sadly.
-Then there's a bunch of Crusaders and Legends that we don't have any real information on in terms of who they were, their apeparences and so on.

You think I'm ever pulling a Summer Elise for her Green Tome Valor 3 outside of summer?
That'd be cool but I fear they'd give it its own 5* pool which just kind of shifts it to another issueWhy not create a different summoning pool with the usage of Arena medals to summon people like Raigh and Oboro (and remove them from the regular pool altogether)?
Now that would be amazing. But I cannot see them ever doing it. They will keep a strangle hold on those units forever, no matter how out of date they get (and they XMas units were and still are really good). Or if they did do it they'd use their favorite thing in the worldMake a permanent 1-2* banner comprised of the original launch 3-4* units. Use Badges and Great Badges to summon for them. Low cost summons for low cost units.
Include a 3% focus rate anyway. But here, the focus units are all the original seasonal units up to the first Xmas set. Now people have a real drive to go to this banner.
