Healers are actually pretty scary now with the weapon upgrades (Elise with horse buffs and candlelight + wrathful staff upgrades = el oh f***ing el), but their reduced BST along with how they're restricted in what skills they can use will hurt your arena score.
You can put a healer on your defense team and watch people drop like flies, since the cutoff for defense scores is so low you can run anything you want as long as there's a bonus unit.
A lot of people struggle when they can't bait and kill a unit (See hate for Firesweep Lyn) So a uncounterable 2 range horse than can AoE cripple any nearby heroes will really punish them. That said, only arena scoring matters for defense
I faced a team with Reinhardt, BowLyn, Elise and Axura on the boat map. Reinhardt died instantly but Elise used Gravity+ on my counter to BowLyn and locked my whole team, leaving them unable to escape BowLyn wrath.
The fact that Elise had full cavalry buffs and my counter to colorless is a green tome, meant that I couldn't even 1 shot her, which would activate WoM of Axura. They took out 2 of my units but I didn't give them the win just because they have BowLyn on their team, BowLyn teams receive no wins from me.

You might want to check out Clarine, Azama, and Priscilla. They have merits of their own.
What's the merit for Priscilla? That's the one I have, and I am planning to put her in a horse team. Also, is it good to put Breath of Life on healers? To keep with the healing theme.
yes. breath of life is good with the dazzling staff effect since you attack without being attacked and usually want to cause debuffs to opponents. BoL lets you heal while attacking and if you manage to get wrathful staff for 'b' slot it can be a great combo. I've been running Bride Lyn in TT like this long before the update but with no wrathful staff (still works).
In regular Arena trying to stay in T20? Sure why not.
In Arena Assault trying to get top 1k? Nope, not in the starter team. But could be of use for the 6 other teams, but IMO build your armor/high bst starters first.
I actually have no idea what these BST talk means. I get that it's something to boost the Arena score so that we can get promoted to a higher level? But how does one know what types of units give high BST? Is it HP? Total stats? Something else?
