While Palmer was carrying out an investigation to unearth a body that had been dumped by Angelo, he spotted a secret under-water GHEIST base emitting a strange green light. Ksendra works there, putting the finishing touches on her robotic spiders who will enable her to read the future…something the Vortex cannot in any way allow, which is why they've dispatched T Gaank, the machine that "breaks! rams! and smashes!” to put a stop to the GHEIST before it's too late!
angelo hands down something montana LONG waited.... SoA finally comes to rescue he might even see a ban in the future. 9/10
T gaank second best release. Compare him to jakson, heitachi, benicio and Mantiz? better than them and they are ALL good cards. 9/10 (would have been 9.5 but faces FIERCE competition i mean dagg and x-0dus are both so good...)
Ksendra mm missed opportunity just kinda dislike 7 power made her 8/6 would not think it would be TOO op (or perhaps asking too much). yes SoA damage reducer BUT 5 STARS not gna work well.. well maybe time will tell, but gheist kinda needed a more offensive 5*. 7.5/10
Palmer meh.. even faced against SoA he is not unbeatable, if stop: ability was something like +3 power would have been WAY better... sentinels have mediocre 5*s, and really could have used something better. again, dont think 8/6 would have made him op. missed opportunity, will rather use havok. 7/10
IMO Palmer is a very decent card. Sentinel has become the attack manip equivalent to Junta: it's "okay" to run one or two of their cards that becomes very bad vs SoA, as long as you have a couple of good Stop cards to cover that weakness. Palmer is by no means unplayable without his Stop ability, and he will easily beat most SoA cards pill for pill and swing for a scary 10 damage. Mono Sent now becomes a very good option whenever Roots are strong in the Meta.
Angelo: Murders Montana's worst matchup in Piranas
T Gaank: Topend stats with topend ability. Only unknown is how he fits in with X-0DUS, as SOA and protection overlap. X-0DUS has a big advantage against Piranas and Jungo while T Gaank has the advantage against All Stars and GHEIST. Both complement Dagg better than each other, but Dagg has a 3* replacement as well.
KSendra: I can't predict how she will perform. We know that SOA + DR is a topend combination and 7/x + DR is a viable combination as well (Peeler, Charlie). She's obviously going to be a star in Type 2. In ELO she lacks Wardom's 8 power and competes with Methane and Hriger. GHEIST is good at fighting low* and she is great at fighting other 5*. Will the combination of her and Bristone be enough to put GHEIST back in the ELO mix?
Palmer: Nothing nice to say. 5* Malia.
