Burdock - 7/4 with Stop Opp Bonus (ability) and Stop Opp Ability (bonus)

- Solid 7 power is always a plus
- Especially for an All-Stop, who shut down pesky abilities and bonuses
- And since his abiltiy isn't courage, revenge, ect based, he can be the scourge to many a card.

- 4 damage is low for a 4*
- 4* is 4*. Not the lowest room gap ever.

Overall: 8/10. Normally I hate 4* 4 damagers. There is usually no incentive to win and no incentive for your opponent to chump block. That said, Burdock is a bit different, For one thing, he is an All-Stop, which allows him to ignore DRs, attack manipulation, ect. Second, he 2HKOs quite nicely with Lou, who already had a big 2HKO arsenal. Since the Root's 4* library isn't that impressive now-a-days, Burdock can be the nice 4* you need for your deck

I have nothing better to do; so I will do my first ever full review of a card

Burdock: 7 power, 4 Damage
Ability: Stop opp bonus
- Effective 7 power like most of the other playable Roots cards (Rico, Yookie, Jeto etc)
- DOUBLE STOP. With the Roots bonus activated, it's impossible for a card to use their ability (unless it's a Leader) meaning that and power/attack abilities are cancelled out making the job of Burdock winning easier.
- A much needed 4* for the Roots

- 4 damage for a 4* isn't that good; meaning that 2hko possibilities would probably mean you would have to fury, therefore wasting some pills.
- It's a good Roots card and we all know that it means the staff will ban it as soon as 3 people start doing well with it

Burdock is a good card. Not as effective whilst the likes of Lou, Rico and noodile are banned, but iin a half deck with attack or power manipulating clans, this card looks deadly.
Suggested half with Burdock (Burdock, Gertjan, Jeena Yookie)
ELO: 8.5/10
Survivor T2 : 5.5/10

No one picked up on the reference? I think it's a nod to one of the most iconic images from the 60's.

Burdock - murdock? dandelion and Burdock? or the saving Grace for Roots?
7/4 soa/sob, yes ladies and gentlemen we have yet another 7 powered all stop in the Roots clan, that puts them ahead of all other soa/sob clans in terms of number [3] and power [7/8]

i suppose since this is an all stop it would be acceptable to compare him to his likes:
Shakra - 8/6 elo banned
Burdock - 7/4 allowed (for now)
Glorg - 6/6 elo allowed - used to be a frequesnt staple in Nightmare
Kristin - 7/5 [albeit very conditional] - elo allowed and almost never used
Leviatonn - 6/5 - frequently temp banned
Dieter - 6/3 - elo allowed and hardly ever used
Morlha - 2/4 - *cough*
Spycee - 5/2 - not used often, elo allowed

now ofc all these cards had different uses and needs to meet in their clans
Roots needed
a 4* to replace the banned Ratanah - check
a card that would be strong enough to use but not enough to be banned - its a sin if Burdock gets banned now, but we know what people are like with Roots :S
an elo allowed all stop that is within price range - maybe not in the front of everyones mind but Shakra is banned and nahi is a cr so they really did need a reasonably prices all stop.....-check

ok so we can see Burdock is exactly what Roots needed, he is strong enough to use but (hopefully) wont be banned and he is reasonably priced.....yea i like Burdock

just underpriced for an all-stopper

I just bought him at 900 clintz and felt that was a steal, without ever using him in my deck. A 7 powered block is very good, even if the damage is only 4. Pair him up with Shakra and you have an awesome block combination. Throw fury on one of them (or Timber minus the fury) and you have a 2HKO with only blockers -- nice.

And then Shakra came in...

Is this supposed to be Murdock from the A-team?
