My inventory is starting to get unruly, so I'm trying to reduce the amount of units I have by Merging.
So should I keep the following heroes for future skill inheritance, or should I just merge them? Im not going to list obvious fodder units in my pool like Hectors, Ike's, Nephenees and Takumis.

Here are the extra units I have at lvl 1 I'm not using, so these are basically repeats I have:

Celica - Chill Spd 3
Mia - Flashing Blade 3
Sigurd - Close Def 3 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Siegbert - Atk Tactics 3
Elincia - Flier Formation 3
Camilla - Spd/Def Bond 3
Morgan - Dull Range 3
Morgan - Dull Range 3
Tharja - Candelabra/Vengeful Fighter 3 (-Atk)
Eirika - Swift Sparrow 2
Lucina - Sturdy Blow 2
Shiro - Steady Stance 3/Def Tactics 3
Micaiah - Distant Defense 3 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Lucina - Swift Sparrow 2
Lyn - Atk/Spd Bond 3 (-Atk)
Lyn - Atk/Spd Bond 3 (-Spd)
Morgan - Mirror Stance 3 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Azura - Earth Dance 3
Grima - Vengeful Fighter 3 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Sonya - Mirror Strike 2 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Inigo - Gale Dance 3
Gunnthra - Fortress Res 3/Res Ploy 3 (Could merge into ideal IV)
Lilina - Atk Tactic 3
Sakura - Kitty Paddle (Could merge into ideal IV)
Takumi - Atk/Res Bond 3

I don't know what to keep and what to get rid of because many of these skills are situational to me, and haven't really used yet, nor really had a need.

Like example Stat/Stat bond skills are nice, but require attention to unit placing and I'd typically forget I'd have them equipped and spread my party out nulling the effect and wasting the skill.

Kitty Paddle is nice but Dagger units suuuuuck

Atk Tactic 3, I have two of, should I keep both, or only need 1 in back-stock. Same question @ Swift Sparrow.

Earth/Gale Dance, is it useful? Dull Range, is it worth a B slot? Same questions @Flier Formation @Chill Spd

Sturdy Blow, Mirror Strike, Mirrow Stance, does anyone care?

Close/Distant Def, worth keeping spares of or should I make ideal IV units even better?

Flashing Blade good as an A slot on anyone that isn't Mia or should I just not bother?

And Shiro Steady Stance/Def Tactics... I have Ikes and a Def Tactics seal so should I just merge?

20% bragging, 80% actual interested in opinions.

Im not much of an inheritance builder outside of meme builds like Desperation Life & Death, death blow, etc...

Even with the skills I know I 100% want to keep like Distant Counter, I never gave to another character. I've spent one Distant Counter on Ayra in the year I been playing and I still have some regrets.

Skills like the ones I listed I can't really tell are actually essentially great, or if they're just unique-great. Flashing Blade on paper sounds great, but I can think of a dozen scenarios where Deathblow or Life and Death was a better A skill, or the Sturdy Breath skill, Flier Formation is a unique movement skill, but why care about movement when I have Desperation, Vantage, and Quick Repost, or Wrath.

I lack creativity so I lack the foresight to tell if the skills are actually better than whats more easily available, or just more unique.

I don't /haven't really done Flier/Horse/Armor/Gimmick teams so I been building my characters to perform well on just their own. Like why horse-buff Reinhardt when he already Nukes everything that isn't an internal map.

So my more immediate problem has been using up inventory slots on 5 stars thinking "I don't know if I'm going to do something with this skill" or "Should I +1 Sigurd for a single Atk stat?)

I suppose all I can say is, I instantly merge my own Siegbert, because I honestly don't find tactic skill that important.

On paper, they may sound good, but if you ask people to answer honestly how many of them even use mixed team, the answer is probably zero, esp on this gfaqs board.

Plus, tactic skills pretty much rendered useless on something like rival domain where the skill requirement isn't even possible to fulfill.

Oh, and another new thing, one of the tactic skill now available as seal anyway, and since tactic is blue buff, it can't be stacked, absolutely no reason to have more than one liek goad/ward, thus just use them via seal slot.

I'm using him but doesn't dominate like +1 Myrrh. With 41 Def, she prevents double from 36 Def or lower characters. I would easily switch their levels around if I could.

Myrrh is a better counter against Reds than Hector is, despite color advantage, and is still a threat against Falchion units when Special is ready on Player phase because she attacks Res

And I do realize what a douche I sound like playing down a +10 Vector.

Well I did mention Atk Tactics because I have two, but I do use mixed teams.

If I was going to keep just one, I'd merge Siegbert and use Lilina as fodder since she's +10 and I can't improve her anyway through merge

Yeah but some may be redundant or very situational.
