I would go with context mainly, as that beats SRS in the long run.
I use this routine to find +1 sentences in the lines of my favorite shows and get some extra content for any given word.
I started with the Core 10K deck (mostly because the audio sample and the kanji break down) with all cards suspended and activate them one by one as I encounter a new word in any context. If it’s not in this deck I will create a card using a line from the subs of my shows.
If I’m not able to find a sample sentence here (with around 100,000 sentences now) I get that the word I’m looking it’s not that common so I won’t make much effort to learn it (some WK words fall into this category too ) until I encounter it again.
The same goes for reading; it’ a terrific way to anchor any word, as you’ll encounter words much more often than what was supposed according to the SRS intervals either in WK or Anki.
SRS will give you the head start… but immersion will really fix it in the end.
