Hey man, society is just so uncool! It's Babylon here. But, the Roots, right, they got it, they knew things couldn't keep goin' on that way; we have to make it real again. So, you know what the Roots did? They went to Babylon to tell the government that everything wasn't gonna be alright, man. But no one would listen to ‘em and that really messed with their minds!

lol this has to be a joke.
elo banned?
come on it's not overpowered at all!
not that i care, i don't play Roots anyway
but still, 7/4 with some decent attack manipulation?
i guess UR forgot what ELO banning is suppose to be about.
it's about banning overpowered cards that can barely be countered. (GraksmxxT or Jackie for example)
not about banning every single usefull card!
the cards that are getting banned now are the cards that make a clan playable in ELO, the ones that are nessecary to keep your deck running.

rate green if you agree! smiley

Rico - 7/4 with SoA (bonus) and -6 attack, min 4.

- A high 7 power makes this card tough to beat
- If that isn't enough, its ability of -6 attack makes it even tougher. In fact, it almost forces your opponent to use pills to beat it. (unless they're using Uppers or Sakrohm)
- Clan Bonus of SoA is also a huge annoyance to opponents
- Has a decent 4 damage (6 with fury). With fury, it can cut your opponents life in half.
- Its really cheap currently (300-500 clintz), tohugh who knows how long that'll stay.

Very good card! Almost (if not as good as) Yookie. Though Roots as a lot of good 3-stars, i'd consider Rico over Narenda, anyday. smiley

8/10 - Get this card, before the price shifts to what its worth!

I know but I am just gonna rant anyway.
My goodness! UR is really giving Roots lovers a challenge here.
Come on Noodile, Yookie, Rico, Ratanah, Lou and Shakra.
I mean for crying out loud, they just prohibited the entire stars of the Roots clan excluding Jeena and Arno.
They are really messing up Roots here. I mean I can't make a perfectly solid deck with the existing Roots.

Here it is: Arno, Jeto, Jerry, Narendra, Gertjan, Jeena, Lilly and Ojibway.
Yes, I have to resort to Narendra, that just show how desperate I can make my Roots deck now.
I mean, Ojibway and Jeto are the only 7power above cards in that deck.
I know i sound completely whiney here but this deck is somewhat mediocre.

They really made it tough to make a Roots deck now, with banning 6 cards from a single clan.
I mean, look at GHEIST and slightly at Rescue. The cards they banned there are yea I can accept...
because even without them there are still a number of cards which are amazing to make an 8-deck card.
But what really pissed me off is Montana.
I mean what the freaking hell! Spiaghi is the only banned (do not included the 2 Crs please).
They are the most(my opinion) brutal clan and they got away with the banning, I mean are you freaking kidding me!!!
Look at edd, Donnie, Ottavia, Sharon, Avola and mona!
I mean, god forbid, that they get ban - note the cynical sarcasm.

Man!!! That felt good.
I apologize if my outburst is uncalled for but seriously poor Roots. This made me personally hate Montana.

One of the better three stars for the Roots clan- a definite improvement on Narendra who ends up 6p/4d with the ability -5opp attack min5, whereas Rico manages to go 7p/4d with an even better ability of -6opp attack min4... Rico is definitely worth every star he costs in your deck, and every clint he costs you pocketbook (currently only 400!), especially now that Roots are becoming so effective in ELO.

L1= 2p/1d, L2= 4p/2d,
Level Three 7p/4d Ability=-6opp attack min4

Level 1: 2/1
Level 2: 4/2
Level 3: 7/4. Ability: -6 opp attack, min 4
Bonus: SOA

A better addition to Roots than Jeena (her initiation Buddy), in my opinion. He is a lil' Ratanah, and there have been so many times I wanted a lil' Ratanah and didn't have one. But seriously, Rico will likely fit very well into ELO and Type 1 play, but aside from that, he's a very usable Roots card, which is always welcomed! smiley

Rico has many meanings in spanish.
Most commonly used is Rich (which i think Rico is most related to)
BUT it also means tasty
AND it also means fertile
Lastly it could mean cute/beautiful
Interesting huh?

y? y UR? Y U GOTTA BAN Rico??!! AND HALF THE OTHER Roots CHARECTERS???????!!!!!!!! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!

Monday 08/10/2012, 19:17

ur please hear me out: theres a reason why in every single card of Roots they are complaining about them being elo banned. i think the Roots clan has the most elo banned cards in ur

Thursday 07/05/2015, 13:39

I don't understand why this card cost so little in comparison to Ratanah who is basicaly just a +1 on stars, damage and power.. and his ability is bettter..

Wednesday 28/05/2008, 15:12

a nice powered card with 7!
damage is 4 quite good for 3*!
only 3* stared!
ability is -6 opp attk! good
bonus is soa (stop aponants ability)
i like this card for Roots a good ability and bonus and a low stared power card!smileysmiley

Monday 11/08/2008, 09:24

good card

as u add fewer than 7pills on these cards such as noodie,Rico and Yookie to stop opp's strong cards
Rico would be the best choice for his "-6 att" and can do 4 damage ( 6D with fury)

plz look at the poor "Meyen" of GHEIST clan. also 3 stars but 7/3 and have no ability

all in all, one of the best 3 star cards in dis game and I just wonder how far his price can go smiley

Sunday 21/12/2008, 12:28

aww so cute for his to collect some money for clint city
come to think of he is one of the best lvl3 card on Roots
and look how much it cost only 400 clint 2 bad
i would recon this card to be more expensive

lvl 3 of him has got a very good power but lack of damage smiley
its perfect for elo deck
he can bring down most of the cards


can u please have a look at my new presentation
which is called team Roots and team Piranas
and please don't forget to rate it
this character is in there
so thank u very much
