I am aware how Oshitsune can affect games, undercutting 7-powered cards and creating insurmountable pill/life gaps. For example, in a hand of all 7-powers or less with no DR/SOA, you can safely put 4 pills on any character in round 1 and still have enough pills to overcome a full-pill play with Oshi.
But good luck finding that hypothetical in competitive ELO. Berzerk, Montana, Junkz, and Jungo all have at least 2 staples with either SOA or protection: power, and nearly every clan (notable exception: Bangers) has some combination of SOA, attack manipulation, and multiple 8+ powered cards that can go pill-for-pill with Oshi.
No other card that is frequently ELO banned is so easy to counter-- it's not difficult to build a deck where half the cards neutralize Oshitsune in some way. So, my question is... why do people still spend their ban votes on this guy, when much more solid choices are barely acknowledged?
Obviously, I currently have Daddy Jones, but to my understanding, he's more of a type 2 card. The DR isn't necessary because I already Gabrielle and Eugene, and losing with 5-stars isn't fun. Here's some of my thought process for the other 5-stars
Hikiyousan- Great 10/7 stats with ability and bonus. I'm really just going for a hard hitter for my 5-star, so he fits the job.
Serena- 10/6 with protection:bonus is really solid. The damage is getting a bit on the lower side, so i probably won't use her.
Oraya- This is the card i'm leaning towards the most. She can gap 10 when her ability is active, so that makes this card a whopping 9/10! The only gripe is that Eddie's heal won't be as useful when she wins a round.
Taigo is nice, but I feel like Dave is a better card in general. Better life gap, and Dave gets more attack than Taigo after 5 pillz. I guess Taigo is useful for lower pill battles, and I probably shouldn't be using my 2* for high pill shenanigans.
Hello guys i am having trouble reaching 1300 but as you could see in my profile i could not even pass 1200. should i use a different deck or a different strategy i really need help this is the preset i use.
and if you would look in my profile i really am exactly at 1200. as it is hard for me to advance. if you could offer me help please post here and tell me a clan that i could use so that i could advance further. or atleast help me with tactics and mitigations
I recently reached the higher levels of ELO (1300+) and for some reason people's behaviour changes at this tier. Whenever I am about to KO someone, they leave the battle, and sometimes even when they realize they can no longer win, they leave the battle. Why is this? Is there a points benefit to leaving the battle as opposed to being KO'd? If that is the case, I think the scoring needs to be revised.
*He's the card i'm having trouble with. Melanie is a staple, but i'm not sure who to put for the second 2*. I use him because it's always nice to have some attack manipulation, but i'm thinking I should use another card.
Esther- Very dependent on ability, also I have Konrad's poison.
Darril- Very predictable and easily played around, very weak to SOA.
Cornelia- Has more attack than Drummond pill for pill at 5 pillz. The downside is that I have to pill if I predict a bluff; with Drummond I can just throw him down and watch his ability save me from pilling.
Miho- Way too ability reliant and weak to attack manipulation. The upside is better damage than Drummond and she can do pretty well against a lot of cards with SOA or attack manipulation.
It's really between Miho, Cornelia, and Drummond at this point. Even though I do like having the attack manipulation, at higher pill rounds Drummond seems to fall very short when Cornelia would have won the round. And Miho just bring a whole different dynamic than Drummond and Cornelia. I'm leaning away from her due to the weakness to attack manipulation, and the fact that the Berzerk is already kind of weak to attack manipulation.
So I recently played a Pussycats deck and I realized that they were using Charlie. I then checked the ELO ban list and I saw it wasn't on there. I recently came back into UR a few days ago, so did the staff decide to unban Charlie? I'm pretty sure she was permabanned when I left about 9/10 months ago, and i'm not sure why she still wouldn't be banned. She's pretty much as overpowered as a card can get.
Ok, so I've just started playing Elo seriously and I've been struggling to make a deck, can you please take a look at this one and give any pointers if necessary or alternatively a pointer to a whole new deck idea.
