"Family, honor, money and shady plans". The specter of the Montana motto creeps over the city. Having always had a firm footing in the world of crime, the Montana Godfathers have developed a pronounced taste for power. So now, under the iron rule of the formidable Don, their depraved and violent henchmen are all set to spread fear and terror in both the streets and corridors of power.

Way to keep it classy and go with cannibalism UR

Again, I wish to disagree with Slify. This man is one helluva bluff. No one wants to take 7 damage smiley And no one wants to take 3 either. In Montana, 6 power really isn't that bad; the Bonus makes up for it. While he is a bulky 5*, Slify's reviews (in my opinion) are rather biast towards ELO and DTs. There are such places as Fight Club, Survivor, and Death Match, where this guy completely mauls.

In all, I would give this card at least an 8 smiley

Tino - 6/7 with Defeat: -3 opp life, min 3 (Ability) and -12 opp attack, min 8 (bonus)

- 7 damage is always nice.
- -12 opp attack gives Tino a nice little advantage in combat.
- And even if Tino falls in combat, his opponent loses a nice 3 life.

- Generally, Tino will usually have to lose in the first or second round for his abilities to have any effect.
- 6 power is very low for a 5*. Especially with an ability that doesn't help in battle.
- He is 5*. You generally won't want your 5*s to be intentionally losing, unless it provides you a great opportunity.

Overall: 6/10. On paper, Tino seems decent though. 7 damage if you win. 3 damage if you lose. However, some things need to be taken into account. SoA and SoB can ruin your little plans, in addition, you still take the damage of the opposing card. So in T2, if you plan to use him, expect Dorian or Tanaereva's wrath still. Tino is also a 5*, which isn't practical for a defeat card, as your 5* are generally your heavy hitters. If Tino were a 6/4 3* with everything the same, he'd be much better. Finally, 3 damage seems wonderful, but Montana isn't very well known for its high damage (Except for its 5*), and to do 9 damage is pretty awkward anyways.

I want to say this is Luca Brasi from the Godfather but unfortunately it is not, Luca was not a cannibal, and Luca was the one to "take care of" the people not dispose of them. Thus, this Montana team still needs to make a Luca to do Dons dirty work. (I do not think that Aldo and Giovanni would be very persuasive in my mind.

Now to this card.
The card is quite interesting as it again gives Montana a heavy damager and a huge strategic player.
-Montana bonus is one of the best in the game period.
-Did you see his damage? 7 Damage is a beast it can 2hko with many montanas like Sharon.
-His ability is what makes him good. If you use 1-2 pills with this card then most cards will need to use 3-4 to beat it. Then they would lose 3 damage, be down pills, and have a hard hole to climb out of when the Montana bonus drains more of their pills. But thats imagine what happens if they over pill, then they are down by 5 or so pills... OW.
-His ability is also like the new Eloxia but better. Why? Because he too has a partner to 2hko with but Tino doesnt need to go on the first round to be effective. (Avola+Tino lose=2hko, Tino win+Avola win (even facing SOA)=2hko) Avola+Tino=Headache.
-Common card so everyone can buy him

-6 power is low so people expect you to bluff. (good thing you have 7 damage hehehe)
-Avola+Tino=unrealistic elo deck
-Can be beaten a little too easily for a 5 star but at least he has his defeat
-The overall bad is the all stops (Glorg, Leviatonn etc), SOA/DR, SOB with attack manipulation or pill gaining (Selma, Raeth, Petra etc), SOA with the same (Rolph, Toro etc).

Not too much to complain about, he is still pretty solid win or lose, and he is very strategical. The only problem is that the Montana already have decent 5 stars that are heavy hitters (Don, Avola, etc etc) but they have no 2-3 stars that are heavy hitters. I think people will only see him as mediocre but if you use a little strategy he can be a real threat.

i think Tino is very underrated.i cannot say he is a bad card because he is very special to me.

The problem with Tino is that he is a 5 star that has an ability that is activated if you lose. Last I counted, Montana had 8 5 stars! You could make a deck of all 5 star Montanas! (Note: that does mean you have to play Gary. I'm just saying) This is all fine and dandy in the regular rooms or T2 formats, but in ELO or T1, what 5 stars are you going to have in your deck? I think he's better than Gary, but not as good as any of the other 5 stars.

Sliffy I agree with almost all of your reviews..... This review making it almost....You know all those cards that ko with Timber and fury.......... Well Tino makes a perfect combo with them. It opens up so many "1hko" options.

Sunday 01/05/2011, 13:33

Tino + Avola perfect team in an mono Montana deck ;D do 3 damage with Tino without throwing out any pills and then you can even 12 pill Avola and 1hko without fury!

Friday 13/05/2011, 22:32

Beware. What I am about to say is if, and only if you run a mono Montana deck. Like me. smiley smiley smiley smiley Or, you could manage a win with 3 or 2. It just depends on what you do. But this is mainly for a 2HKO. smiley

Use Tino on the first round, put 1, 2 or 3 pills on him. Then, if he losses or wins, the opponent is either at 5 life points or 9 life points, that is, if it is regular and not ELO. Now for the interesting part, if you went FIRST with Tino, then you can go with Avola for the win! Pill all of your pills on her and prepare for evil laughter as your opponent weeps.

Now for an ELO win. Throw Tino out there first round, pill 1! Then, throw Avola out there, shove 10 pills on her, and fury her with the other 3. SHABAM! You have 11 damage done with her. Now. Tino lost, so they were at 11 life points. Avola just finished the fight for you. Tino should be more than what he is worth right now. It's a crying shame. He can be used for a bluff, AND still possibly win! I mean come on. It's a win-win situation here guys and gals! Just look at the proof in the pudding!

If you look at the statistics for Tino and Avola, they can be used in ELO together! There are some good 2* and 3* cards out there that can be used in the deck. You could easily woop some major behind in T2, seeing as you can use as many stars as you want. So you could use all of those "deadly" 5*. Hahaha. Montana are by far my most favorite clan EVER!!!

Thanks for reading this! smiley smiley smiley

This monster's name is a complete lie and an genius idea at the same time. The whole cannibal aspect makes me shudder so much, it's ridiculous but enough about that....Tino means "little" or something along those lines in Italian. Now look me in the eye and tell me HE'S little. XD
