- Yookie (Roots) Im not sure if this is needed and might harm Roots more then they should be harmed.
- Olga (Freaks) Fine.
- Askai (Jungo) Also fine.
- Azel (Nightmare) I usally say for players to change her to Azgroth lol.
- Muze (Pussycats) Not sure she needed a ban.
- Robb Cr (All Stars) Not sure hes used as much as he used to be.
IMO these bans do a great job, considering how the meta has evolved!
Roots needed a gentle nude to cause them to back away from starting to become OP again, and Yookie's ban does it. This just helps limit the amount of Gretchen hands that "auto-win" either if the opponent calls her wrong (either overpilling or failing to block her.)
Olga isn't something Freaks need anymore. They have a virtual 8 power 2* now, so instead of using Olga, you can free up an extra star and squeeze in an 8 power pill manip that you couldn't before. Freaks half-decks remain almost as strong without being as OP.
Askai was an obvious choice. If we spend our votes against Jean or Troompah each week, Jungo may become fair again.
Azel is another coin flip card NM can live without.
Muze has become an even bigger coin flip card recently, as PC gained two cards that effectively DR for 5. Same problem with her as Azel, Gretchen, etc -- calling her wrong 100% costs you the game unless you have SoA.
Robb Cr wasn't a big threat, but his "retirement" will give Saki a chance to shine.
