"Vote green if you think Ottavia should be 500 clintz"

@marioman133: voted red, sorry, but that's a very weak statement.
Reasons for that:
1) Spiaghi is just a DR while Ottavia is seriously flexible. I hate putting even 1 pill on that wimp spiaghi as winning with him gives no advantage at all. Ottavia has 3 damage, not much ofcourse, but not that bad after all.
2) Spiaghi is a new card. I joined UR in the beggining of 2008, and there was no card close to spiaghi back then. Only DRs were Ricardo and Ottavia... and you know, she was the most expensive non cr montana card except for vickie ofcourse. I paid 3k for her, and only 2.4k for Mona. Ofcourse now they have Spiaghi but before Ottavia was the only playable DR for Montana. In addition to that, this card is really old and legendary, chances of her becoming a cr are atleast 10 times bigger. Her price is decent just because of her brilliant past! Nobrocybix costs ~400ctz, worth that price? No, it's just because he's really old and is a real veteran (CR factor, again). But nobro isn't playable, and ottavia is playable! She's a legend at work, especially with spiaghi neutrolized. I don't see why she'd have to be 500ctz, unless you are too poor to afford one, that's the only obvious reason for you to say that (personally for me). So wait, you want to say ottavia should be 500ctz while nobrocybix is 400ctz? Doesn't make sense, really...
All in all, it's just the same as asking a dj korr cost as much as Scarlett Cr... both are one of the oldest cards in the game, but can you compare their usability? DJ Korr is a Godlike card while Scarlett is just a collector card, nothing more (I never seen one in a deck to be honest).

ottavia is worth every clint

7/1 -3 min 1
and 7/3 -2 min 2
are completley different cards

spiaghi is meant to block
ottavia has so many more uses, she can deal 5 damage where spiaghi does ony 3. she can scare the opp, if she gets through they lose 3-5 life, is they win theyve use too many pillz (due to the montana bonus) and had their damage reduced
ottavia gets them in an unescapable situation and spiaghi just dr's

Hm. Not a professional statement about this card?

Instead of whining or anything, I'll post the stats.

Level 1: 4/1
Level 2: 5/2 Ability: -2 Opp. Damage, min 2
Level 3: 7/3 -2 Opp. Damage, Min 2

This card was quite the useful one back in the day. Sure, Spiaghi has stepped up and made himself a name, but she will quickly do for players who enjoy damager reduction. Her 7 power means that she'll be able to handle most cards when combined with her bonus, and even if she doesn't win, they get their damage knocked down by two points.

These two points can mean the different in winning and losing, so don't underestimate this one!

Spiaghi and Ottavia should have a love-child who reduces damage by 5. smiley
But in any event, both cards are useful in their own ways.
While yes, Spiaghi is a great damage reducer and great for stalling for turns, Ottavia's damage is a great asset, in that she can assist in a 2-turn K.O. with Don.
It's all a matter of how you want to play.

You all need to realize that Ottavia came out over a year before Spiaghi, back then cards like this was grand. There was no Mona, no Oscar, no Sharon, and no Veccio.
Her two years ago her competition was Zodiack, Simon, Aldo, Giovanni, and Lino Borsa (minus Lyse Teria Cr). Do you really think there was much of a choice of who should fill that 3* ELO slot?

Ottavia was also cornered a while ago, which is why her price is still high despite how no one really uses her anymore. Do you really think cards like William and Skinner got that high because of their usefulness? Those cards were cornered a while back and that's why their price is high above where they should be (in fact, three months ago they were both at around 1,500).

Her high price might not be as obvious as why Shawoman Cr's price is so high, despite being useless in combat. But there is still a reason for why her price is high.

Ottavia is a very solid, versatile card. Her high power helps her take full advantage of the Montana bonus and her damage reduction can take the edge off a strong attacker. If you think your opponent might be bluffing, you can play her with 1 pill. You'll likely win if there's a bluff and you'll reduce 2 damage if it wasn't.

She is terribly expensive though, especially for a common card, so new players are better off getting Mona and Edd first and using Simon/Giovanni until they can afford her.

The reason why Spiaghi is the price he is and why ottavia isthe prce she is, is that ottavia is a 7/3 where as spiaghi is 7/1. Because spiaghi only has a damage of 1 he is a lot less intimidating than ottavia. also, with only a damage of 1, its not really going to affect the opponent that much so they can either let him through and only take 1 damage or a SoA and pill or just take the damage reduction. with ottavia, its not JUST defence guys. She still has that 3 damage that she can inflict (5 with fury). even without her ability, she wouldn't die as hard as spiaghi, and to be quiet honest, there are A LOT of people who play mono gheist in ELO, me included smiley. so stop complaining about the prices, if you really think spiaghi is better then choose him instead.

Thursday 07/10/2010, 03:10

Theres really no point in declaring Spiaghi over Ottavia unless you just can't afford Ottavia.

Sunday 16/05/2010, 15:16

screw every one who is saying spiaghi is better
yes spiaghi is better in reducing damage but not in reducing you opponents life
ottavia is great if you need another damage reducer next to spiaghi because you can't use 2 spiaghi's in your ELO deck
also ottavia can 2-hit-KO with avola wich spiaghi can't unless it uses fury but that wil cost you 3 more pilz.smiley
ottavia is just an great card and isn't completly destroyed by SOAsmiley

ottavia is not overpriced! smiley
here's the painful truth: spiaghi is underpriced!!!!! smiley deal with it people smiley

Sunday 22/11/2009, 11:27

The only reason this card is so pricey is because montana lack good 3* fillers, so what do they have? Mona, yes. But for a good ELO half deck you need another, it's true that Spiaghi has a lower star count and better damage reduction but if you want to inlude one of the Montana's real killer cards (which they have plent of) you need another, and for me, Ottavia is a much more solid choice than the other options. She can handle SOA, unlike Prince Jr, she is a
1* 4/1
2* 5/2
3* 7/3
Which is a lot more solid than Milovan and she can also hold her own in a half deck unlike Veccio.
So it's true Spiaghi is better than her with reduction and star count, but unlike him she has a decent damage, can be ued as a bluff, and is a good defensive/offensive card overall.
She gains her ability at level two, which is useful if your trying to fit higher leveled cards in and have already included Prince Jr and Spiaghi. She only has to use 1 or 2 pillz and your opponent may see it as a bluff and use 1 or 2 and end up losing.
I give this card an 8/10, a great 3* card for the montana's.

She's a gambler! You can bluff with her or not! You'll keep your opponent guessing. smiley
