Having devoured anything and anyone who ventured into the swamps, Ghumbo ended up very low on provisions. In order to find new prey and vary his diet a little, he headed for Clint City and ensconced himself with the Nightmare clan, who didn’t have much choice in the matter.

Ghumbo - 7/7 with -10 attack, min 7 (ability) and SoB (bonus)

- 7 power, which is very decent for the generally weaker Nightmare clan.
- 7 damage ( with fury) is massive. It allows you to kill with Glorg, and furious lots of stuff.
- Just like Askai was kinda a Montana, Ghumbo is kinda an Upper, with a great -10 attack (obviously not a min of 3 though
Forces your oppoents to pill, possibly even over pill
- And with Sob, you negate Montana/Upper/Rescue annoyances and change the tables.
- He also has fantasic art

- You have to use at least 1 pill to get over the min threshold.
- His main flaw is that he's 5*. OOooh, big.

Overall: 9.5/10. Lets get this straight. Kolos is ELO-banned. This card has a decent power. This card has amazing damage. This card attack reduces. This card has SoB. Yeeeah, use this card Nightmare fans.

I love that people are complaining about ghumbo being banned and it making nightmare terrible seeing as no one complained about nightmare being unplayable prior to ghumbo's release

Guys stop bitching about the ghumbo being banned. Stop complaining and do something about it. Go to elo and vote to keep it. for the record i play nightmare when ever i can. and i generally dominate with it. SO i completly understand it being banned

Ghumbo: 7/7; -10 opp attack, min 7 at level 5

-A great 5* card for the Nightmare clan, replacement for the now-banned Kolos
-And... what a replacement!
-High damage (9 with fury) opens a bunch of 2HKO possibilities
-Relatively high power + good attack manipulation make it easy to inflict that huge damage
-Bad: Well, his ability has a high ''min'' of 7, meaning that in 0 pill fights, he still looses against cards like Rico, Samantha, Akendram etc.
-Also, he is a 5*... and in no random, the card with a lower star count wins when both attacks are equal!
-Don't kill me, but I find this card more reliable than Kolos and a fantastic ELO-replacement

To be honest he is not scary,not at allsmiley The way things have developed in ELO there are much bigger threats and a lot of other characters to worry about. He is very similar to Dorian from the Uppers. Up until the 3rd pill he is the same as every 8 powered card. I think it's about time the staff reconsidered re-arranging the list with the banned characterssmiley

Recruitment... Eh, Joined by Force Entries:



Really? Bust in making a mess out of my mansion and breaking the door? Worse- you just knocked out my troll Glorg and hitting K Cube- well hit him anyways. When this swamp like he creature enter my domain and demand me to recruit him, I felt... honored to hear such needs to join... YET I said no. Ghumbo seemed to be... aggressive. Ghumbo roared at me, at first, and threatened to eat me, or the entire group if needed. I was going to get Kolos or Azgroth to kick him out, but I shouldn't show such hostility to someone who WANTS to join so BADLY. I overlooked his threat, and simply fold my arms and propose a deal. If he was able to mess with the Uppers, he was in. Ghumbo, new to the city, needed help. I decided to give him Glorg and K Cube, but Ghumbo ignored the allies and moved out of the mansion heading... I don't know here, but not in the direction of the Uppers. I ordered Ombre and Pan to assist. Ombre was rebellious against this. His only enemy was Marlysa from the Fang Pi Clang. I hate this guy, but I swayed him, hoping this could be true, "Marlysa SHOULD be attacking the Uppers as we speak." That made him go with Ghumbo... I felt bored, and tagged along as well.

That was a risky move to lie with Ombre, but I'm glad my prediction is true. Some of the Fang Pi Clang were attacking the base of the Uppers. Ghumbo was way ahead of us though. He seemed to scare the lesser minions of the Uppers and Fang Pi Clang. Ghumbo was scaring almost anything in his path. I could recall Burt appearing before Ghumbo- that wasn't smart. Ghumbo just pushed Burt through one of the windows making a mess out of the inside. When I looked Ombre- he was gone. No duh. Pan was with me making sure we weren't attacked by some sly Fang or Uppers. Ghumbo walked up the stairs and wrecked a miss on the second floor. Jeeves and Oxen came from the side trying to halt Ghumbo. The over-sized swamp male creature shoved the two against the wall. Glenn came with the double barrel shotgun shooting Ghumbo. He took the shot glaring at Glenn. He charge tackling her against several desks- God! He's a deadly machine! Zatman and Wayne appeared though. Two against one- no way. I ordered Pan to attack the two surprising Wayne. Zatman went aheadof Wayne as he tackled Ghumbo. The burst through the window of the second floor landing in the streets. Ghumbo shoved Zatman off. I went back to the first floor hitting Collin and Jody appearing before me. I went outside staring at the two warriors grabbing each other's hand and trying to prove their brute strength. Pan poked my shoulder pointing to the Fang Pi Clan. Chan, Hattori, and Macumba entered the field hammering the lesser Uppers. Ombre came through the building slamming his blade against the Upper's headquarters landing on his feet. He glance upwards staring at Marlysa.

Ghumbo knee Zatman and toss him into the Fang Pi Clan.

"HOW ABOUT NOW?!" he roared. I couldn't say no- not with the ultimate destruction he did. Things were getting a bit hectic now... Sentinels were coming to the scene. I answered Ghumbo he was a full fledged member of Nightmare. We retreated an went back towards the mansion. I wrote down this entry- to make sure this mistake of overlooking a giant creature... won't be ignored or disappointed.

Ghumbo is an asset that scares the living hell out of some of our enemies and allies alike. He place fear in some faces by his intimidating body. Oh- and he can do whatever he wants... I approve the devouring of anything from small puppies to old people. Exterminate them for us, Nightmare will prevail!

Maker and leader of Nightmare

P.S Don't piss Ghumbo off- might eat me as well... And I don't know if that was a joke or some real threat.... *Shutters*

Many people have made the comparison between Ghumbo and Askai in terms of ELO bannings. However, I would like to point out that Hefty actually makes just as good (maybe better) of a comparison. While Askai and Ghumbo are separated by 2 attack, a difference between their mins and SOB versus +2 life, Hefty and Ghumbo only differ by 1 damage and a difference in their mins. While I'm sure that we can all agree that 1 damage is more valuable than a lower min, I have to wonder if Ghumbo really warrants a perma-ban considering that Hefty is never even suggested for a temporary ban, let alone suggested for a perma-ban, let alone actually getting banned.

Blade's review-
- to start off the power is 7 on this card which is great
- 7 damage (9 damage with fury)
- most of the time you have waste one less pill
- great bluff
-bonus makes him have a good defense against other clans
- 10 opp attack is like taking off a pill for a 10 powered card
- again with the 7 damage this can scare many opponents with the ability activated
- times this card can save you 8/10 times(I have Ghumbo myself)

- 5* takes up a lot of room
-if used in a half deck bonus can be deactivated and makes Ghumbo more vulnerable
- on the other hand, If used with Piranas you are guaranteed to have that bonus with you
- okay back to Ghumbo Drs can weaken him a lot
-also Prs will weaken him
- the min is 7 but that is fair
- sometimes Ghumbo can just be outmatched by other abilities

Overall- I give Ghumbo a 9.5/10 or 9/10 just because of the many times he can save you. Sometimes the -10 opp attack is just not enough for those higher powered cards but if used correctly you can make a great bluff or even win the game most of the time

incase people are wondering, ghumbo>askai..SoB is a treasured stat, much better than +2 life
