This is just too much! My fav clan get this stunning cardsmileyOk so I know little of stats as some of you may know,but I.m a large comic geek and this character fits rather nicely into the whole clan mythology.The art is dark ,and the uniform(NEO NAZI) is once again present.Takes me back to the old style of GHEIST cards.Fine art and great bio that fits in well will the rest of a rather nasty bunch.I hope this promotes the clan in T1 ,and maybe even elo?

up yours to all the haters!smiley

Move over, Gotham City. You may have Batman, but Clint City has Ratman!
I would sing the theme song but a court order says I mustn't. XD

Sigmund's GHEIST Log:

Subject #1801


One of the best things about being a famous doctor is that you meet a lot of interesting and unique individuals, which is what makes GHEIST the organization it is today. Despite abandoning my career very early on to form my organization, I still left quite an impact and was credited as one of the best doctors in Clint City. I was quite proud of the title, but I realized it was meaningless, as titles and nobility mean nothing in this city. Besides, it was quickly taken away by those jerks at Rescue Hospital.

Anyway, as I said, I met a lot of strange patients and work alongside many unique people, who knew what they were doing. One of them was my trusted colleague, Dr. Ernst. We didn't work alongside each other, since we both had different professions, me being a doctor, and him being a scientist for the hospital. Despite that, we often met and talked with one another and I was impressed with the man. He seemed to know exactly what he was talking about whenever we discussed a particular subject. And if he didn't understand, he allowed me to explain it to him, which is one of the reasons he has my respect.

One evening, as I was preparing to leave and head back home, Ernst stopped and asked me to stay a little longer as he had something to show me. Intrigued, I accepted and waited until everyone had left for the night. When we were the only ones left(except the janitors, who no one ever pays any attention), he led me to his laboratory, which he had hidden away in the basement of the hospital. I laughed at myself; a laboratory hidden in plain view of everyone. As I entered, I looked around and saw the usual things one sees in a lab. But what really grabbed my attention was the large sheet that was covering parts of the room.

Sensing my curiosity, Ernst told me that this was what he had brought me down to see. As he removed the sheet, I stared both shocked and surprised at what I saw. Cages full of rats and mice. But these were not ordinary rats. No, these had been experimented on. Some were irritable and their eyes were red, looking almost... demonic. Ernst explained that he had been experimenting on these creatures in hopes of better understanding how the mind of a rat truly works. I observed them, amazed. Most of them tried desperately to get out of their cages, and feast on both me and Ernst but they could not. I laughed at this. I think my respect for Ernst grew several lengths that day.

Afterwards, I decided to leave the hospital and create my own organization to conquer the city, after becoming dissatisfied. Ernst tried to convince me to stay, but I told him I could not and I offered him the chance to come with me, but he couldn't and I knew why. Unlike me, he had a reputation and he couldn't give that simply so my dream could become a reality. We wished each other the best of luck, and he told me that he would be watching me from afar. Thanking him, we both went our separate ways.

Many months had passed since I left the hospital, and my organization, which I called GHEIST, grew largely, much to my distinct pleasure. However, I was saddened that I could no longer speak to my friend, Ernst. I missed his conversations with him, and I could tell he felt the same. I had cut off communication with Ernst, because I did want the hospital, nor the opposing clans to know we were on good terms with each other. Knowing it would probably put him at risk, I had Z3r0 D34d hack into the hospital's files to do a search on Ernst to see how it was.

To my immediate surprise, I found out that he was no longer working there, which worried me. I had my suspicions, after all. Afterwards, I had Z3r0 D34d do a quick search to find out what had happened to him, and my suspicions were true. The hospital had found out about Ernst's experiments and had him arrested. What's worse, he was planning to be executed within the next few days. Upset by this, I quickly had Vladimir and several others raid the Sentinel's HQ, to find and Rescue Ernst.

Thankfully, they succeeded, but Ernst was near dead, as he had been tortured by those damn cops. My anger and hatred for them rose, but I would deal with them later. Quickly, Vryer and I began experimenting on him to help save his life. And knowing Ernst, I knew what kind of creature he would have preferred being. After hours of work, we had finished and know had to wait for Ernst to awaken. When he did, he was ecstatic to see me, and even more to see his new form. After he had gotten over his shock, I offered him another chance to join GHEIST. Needless to say, he accepted.

I'm glad Ernst is with us. Not to insult Vryer and or any of the others here in GHEIST, but I am glad to have more intelligent conversations around here. I am also glad that Ernst is happy with his transformation. But we seriously have got to do something about Draheera. She's getting... feisty.

Doctor Sigmund GHEIST,
Leader and Creator of GHEIST

What people tend to forget that beginners cannot affor XU52 or Dr.Saw. I rate this card a 8/ 10. Mostly because it gives u life and it stops the opp. ability. If u play it right it with maybe a fury u get five more lives and the last time i checked thats pretty cool smiley However as u slowly start to climb the ladder that is get stronger its usefuleness decreases because u get knocked out pretty easily and u just feel reluctant using all the pills on him bcause u knw u have got bettr cards even say at lvl. 13 u will find stronger cards. But all in all its a great card that gives u LIVES! if u are a beginner and just pissed at seeing good crads being high priced rate this green and I will make sure to bring u cheap cards that are good. Dont believe me? Check out Dolly

I think this charater is based on the former head of the Nazi SA Ernst Rhom

Really, why all the hate in Ernst?? Isn't he just Dr Saw with one less damage and one less star? And last time
I checked, Dr Saw was a pretty decent card. 1 star difference is very much worth the 2 life gap right????

Saturday 16/04/2011, 18:44

pretty good card.
when you look at his stats right away you'll say,"FAiL!"
but he's actually just a Dr.Saw with one less star and damage
i rate this card 8/10

Saturday 23/04/2011, 00:41

Hello people!? He was made to be used with Wurmhol! You know? That Defeat: Poison 1 Min 4 card? smiley

Pretty effective combo if you ask me just for 5*.

I think Ernst better watch himself with the sudden influx of anti-rat Berzerk members.

I honestly appreciate Ernst of GHEIST. One of my starter cards when I first came, Ernst has always helped me in tricky situations or at least gave me an option for strategy. At pw 6, dmg 3, with a stop ability bonus if you pack a GHEIST deck, Ernst real value is in its ability, +1 per dmg ability. Put rage for 5 dmg, you can give damage to your opponent at 5 dmg and boosting your life at +5 life! Use at the right time that can be the difference between wining and losing. Ernst weakness can be its low pw (6) but that's where strategy comes in. For a 3 star Card, he can fit in your 25 deck standard for those tight ELO, Surviour matches. Furthmore Ernest is relatively Cheep in the markets, affordable to those starting out. Am truly appreciative of Ernst. of GHEIST. smiley

Pros: An amazing starter card for anyone to use!
6/3 is fairly decent for a 3 star card backed up with a great ability.
Put 3-4 Pillz on him plus Fury and you've got a good 10 point lead against your opponent
Even against SOA, it's a decent bluff card

Cons: Difficult to fight a SOA team
3 damage is okay, but not too great

Overall: 9/10
This is one of my favorite cards that I have. It can help save the battle from being winnable by healing some life points.
In addition, it is pretty cheap at around 300 clintz. I recommend this card to anyone building a GHEIST deck or just looking for a decent card.

Kenny Cr can compete with this card.. just that Kenny Cr has +2 life per damage..
Applause to this card.. smiley

i love geist and Ernst would have been an ok card a while back but now they are letting out a bunch of 8 pow guys or else they have attack manip as a bonus (not to mention all the super good stop cards out there) lets just take a base eight card for an ex 32 attack of 3 pills you have to put in 6 to beat them thats huge. put him up against a stop card try Karen there 7/7 3* is going to laugh in the face of your 4/3 life gain

Bottom line 6 is to low to use now

this is great card and its cheap!
