c Gertjan

Released on Friday 07/05/10

Of course one must take to the streets, protest, sign petitions and raise public awareness by any means possible. But if you really want to save the planet, the struggle must be politicized. And that’s where Gertjan comes in. As the clan’s self-proclaimed official representative, he wants to transform the Roots into a serious political party. We can but wish him luck!

This card is one of the most Under rated card in the game
In a mono Roots he can defeat great cards like Mona, Rowdy, Oshitsune, Havok and many more...

mono Roots isnt broken at all, why ban the only card which is a support: ability from the Roots?! he isnt even that strong, we might see him as a slightly stronger Elvira, but Elvira gets banned because she has a lot of sinergy with her clan, while Gertjan doesnt because Roots arent very strong in mono, half decks is were they shine with their brilliant 11*/12* strong halfs. I think Gertjan should be unbanned, there is no reason for it to be banned!

Gertjan - 6/4 with Support: +4 Attack (ability) and SoA (bonus)

- Decent 4 damage (6 with fury) that enables 2HKO with Lou or furious Shakra.
- Without any aid, he gets +4 attack, which is nice. With the average 2 other Roots, he gets +8, which can really pill-force. 4 Roots, and +16 attack. Gertjan becomes quite a pill beast.
- Add in the fact that he has SoA, and he can effectively take out many cards (or at least force them to pill a lot).
- His average/weaker power is greatly aided by this. Look at other pill forces like Boohma and Skiner, who only have 4 power (even if they get +4 more attack manipulation).

- When hit by SoA abilities, he is usually weaker than most enemies. Still can beat GHEIST enemies like Arkn or even Bristone though.
- His main flaw, in my opinion, is that his ability is Support: Roots. But Slify, why? Because Roots is barely seen (in my experience) as a mono-clan deck. They are usually strong half-decks. Will Gertjan change this? I doubt it.
- Also, he is up against Rico, Noodile, Yookie and even Nahi Cr for the 3* spots. That is quite a contest

Overall: 7/10 - Gertjan has a lot of pluses, but he is out of step. If you feel like making a mono-Roots deck, Gertjan is your man. But in half-decks, I'd go with Rico or Yookie first

This is getting silly, Gertjan might get perma-banned?? :weird:

I know the list isn't 'final' but it still baffles me that he's even been considered.

A good common 3 star for the Roots, good for people of all levels, is that enough to get things perma-banned? It's not as if he's op, and he's only good in mono, and that's not gonna happen much in elo thanks to all of the other banned cards... :sneer:

While we're at it, why not ban Corrina? She's served us perfectly well for years but why not randomly ban her? :smirk:

Short rant over. You may stop reading.

It is so funny that Gertjan is banned , since there isnt any Roots card left to build a mono deck :sweat:

R.I.P mono Roots, you will be missed.

Love this guy in mono even more so. For a three star i dont ask for much more. At 4 pillz hes 40 attack! Thats amazing. Also forces pilling. Even one hes at 22 so against 7 power they need to go 4 if they have the wrong bonus. SoA always throws people off as well. Gertjan my tourney life thanks you.
