u Walden

Released on Friday 25/09/09

Start from scratch. Live simply in tune with nature and the passing seasons. Fish, hunt and gather fruit. To live differently, Walden gave up his car, apartment, furniture and TV and moved into a little hut on the edge of the waste ground the Roots use as their HQ.

Walden - 5/3 with Power = Opp Power (ability) and SoA (bonus)

- Decent 3 damage for a 2*.
- Only 2*, lets you fit bigger things
- Power = opp Power is very useable with SoA and low stars as it puts down on the amount of +/- power abilities

- Usually needs to overpill to clans with SoA and higher power (Roots, GHEIST). Same with attack manipulation (Montana, Junkz, Sentinel, Rescue, Uppers, Sakrohm) and Power manipulation (Bangers, Ulu Watu, All Stars). And then you remember that Nightmare has quite a lot of attack/power manipulation out there, now-a-days.

Last I checked, that is a lot of clan weaknesses

Overall: 5.5//10 - A very playable card.......but at the same time, quite weak.. Arno's damage reduction and Miken Moore's pill forcing will probably prevail.

LVL 1 Power = 2; Damage = 1
LVL 2 Power = 5; Damage = 3; Ability: power = opp. power

A so-so 2* addition for Roots.

The positive side is that his ability is almost guaranteed to
go through with his SOA bonus (unlike Warren, Somba, Unagi, etc).

The negative side is that even with his ability he is still at a disadvantage
against the 9 clans with power or attack manipulation bonuses, which include:
All Stars
Bangers
Junkz
Montana
Rescue
Sakrohm
Sentinel
Ulu Watu
Uppers

In short, this card has very limited uses. I believe Miken Moose & Arno are both better 2* cards.
Roots could have really used a decent 4* to replace Ratanah in ELO.

Anyway, that's my 2 centz smiley
