I already posted this, but it got deleted ( smiley ). "Akendram" is an anagram for "Mandrake," a plant used in ancient sorcery and pagan rituals.

Two years ago, this card was already overpriced, and today, it is still overpriced. He's just one of those cards who for some reason, consistently remain greatly overpriced for mildly above average stats or abilities, like Praxie from Skeelz as well.

Why do I say Akendram is overpriced?

If you're building a Freaks half-deck for ELO (and Freaks' bonus invalidates any reason for a full deck anyway), this guy is fighting for only the FOURTH slot in the line-up. Obviously Bogdan and Olga are way better than him, so they automatically get the first two slots.

Then, we come to the third slot. Akendram's supporters would say he has a nice attack manipulation, but if you're going to use 0-2 pills, Esmeralda beats him there. If you're going to use more than 2 pills, both Olga and Olga Noel beats him. Yes, Olga beats him at only TWO pills while Olga Noel ties with him at the same TWO pills and thrashes him afterwards. You thought -6 attack was godly? Give it a simple calculation and you'll realise it's true! The fact that he has one measly damage more than either one is simply irrelevant. If you want high instant damage or to 2HKO your opponent, you shouldn't be playing Freaks anyway.

This is why most high level Freaks half decks contain Bogdan, Olga, and usually Esmeralda as well. The fourth slot is quite open to player style and preference. If you ask me, either take Olga Noel for equal star count, or take one more star for Grudj, or gain one more star by going for any of the two-star Freaks, like Magda, Harleen, or Soushee. Nothing wrong in going for Akendram too, but as I've shown above, for a guy only in contention for the 4th slot in your Freaks half-deck, he sure commands an overly high price.

Now as a disclaimer, I don't have him in my collection. Two years ago I only had enough Clintz to choose between him and Olga. I paid 1.9k for Olga, and I have absolutely no regrets at all today. I don't hate Akendram, just his price and whatever the justification there is behind it. smiley

rate green if you miss those days where the most expensive Freaks card was like 300 clints smileysmiley

Akendram is a fantastic card...............but not NEAR worth 8-10k clintz. that's more expensive than Baldovino, Olga and Grudj combined!

more like 2-5k i believe

Saturday 18/04/2015, 14:46

I am impressed how noone didnt notice his name is actually Mandrake , and he is Mandrake Magician ( sorcery involved )

Stop buying him already, I went on a 3-4 month hiatus for crying out loud and the price GREW. Really, if your actually willing to buy this guy for his current price than you've got money to spend elsewhere. He's a decent card, yeah, but 4k+ for a card that is only slightly better than Esmerelda due to his damage isn't worth the extra clintz.

Seriously...nobody catches the children's song? "There was a man lived in the moon, lived in the moon lived in the moon. There was a man lived in the moon and his name was Akendram"?

The most overpriced card ever! 1 more damage than Sargh, 1 more power and 2 more damage than Nimestiec, but also 1 more star and, with bonus, less 8 redution power, so the only difrence betwin these three cards is that they have either less 1/2 damage, less 1 power and, of course, way more cheaper by over 9k of diffrence and, if we see it card by card with bonus, the best card is easely Sargh, then Nimestiec and just then Akendram, so I would say that either Akendram is over priced or Nimestiec and Sargh are really cheap, so in conclusion, if you want a really good reductor don't buy this card because it's a waste of money and never fights for a place in a half-deck, and even for elo is not the safest choice to make.

Rate green if you agree!!!

way too overpriced, not worth the price at all!!!!

I love all the hate on this card. if you refuse to buy him now at this price, you are going to be a lot more upset when it keeps going up and up. For years now all you hear is he is overpriced, if this is true he would be coming down in price, instead the exact opposite is happening he's gone from 300 to 13k. And he is only getting more and more scarce. With Freaks being one of the weakest clans in my opinion, they are due for a major overhaul, an influx of new cards or possibly making some current cards CR. What better cards to make CR then ones that are already rare. And at 3* he is vastly superior to almost all of the plethora of current mid grade Freaks, maybe you can make an argument for Twyh but It is very hard to actually win a round with Twyh. In my opinion to make Freaks on par with some of the other clans they should remove the minimum 3 Health poison limit if it was a 0 minimum health poison the Freaks would be an above average clan instead of the way below average clan they are now. Its kind of sad that almost no one plays a full Freaks deck, but there is just no reason too. A half Freaks deck is the only thing that makes sense for obvious reasons, and I don't think any other clan is so disadvantaged. When the correction finally comes I think the Freaks get a boost. Either that or retire the whole clan, that would be bad ass if a whole clan was eliminated.
