Despite having a mostly unchanged moveset, Morrigan is one of those characters who plays very differently coming into Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Unlike how she was in the previous game, Morrigan in MvC:I focuses much more on rushing her opponent down, and using her partner to set up mix-ups and situations that most players will have difficulty defending against.

One of the players who’s been championing this new playstyle is Cosmic Gorgon’s Juan Miguel Champo, who’s been putting out impressive performances with this team of Dante and Morrigan (with the Time Stone), including a 5th place finish at South East Asia Major 2017. In addition to doing well in tournaments, Champo has been sharing tips and tricks for the team on social media, the latest of which is this new reset concept involving the use of Dante’s Million Carats.

The reset, which you can see below, uses the freeze from Million Carats to allow Dante to set up a sequence ending in his overhead “Hammer” special, while at the same time tagging in Morrigan to set up a low. With the speed of her low, it’s quite difficult for the defending player to block both attacks, even with the game’s pushblock auto guard.
