The way I'm reading the skills is blue creates a blue cd, which explodes and creates 4 blue special tiles which than feeds the other two

The blue has some design problems. It won't be normal to get 4 tiles out of it, even 3 will generally be above average. It's an ability that does nothing if the opponent matches it, and even if the opponent doesn't match it, it'll very often spawn on a side or corner and self-limit, or cause an undesirable cascade and kill off most of the tiles it creates just by going off. This would all be fine, sorta, if the numbers were huge, like 3 or 4 times what we're seeing here, but right now it's his least reliable, lowest-impact ability.
All that needs to be done to counter Beast is to simply either remove any basic blue tiles from around the CD tile before it resolves or remove the blue special tile before he can cast either his blue or green powers to yield the same result.
Updated with levels and max level stats. As per usual, those stats are pre-release, so take them with at least one grain of salt.
