First Kusuri, and now Gordon! Wow, this new artist really gets the good cards to draw. Props to him, he deserves it.

So, Vito lit girls' skirts on fire, and Gordon put them out. Isn't there something just wrong with that?

I like it when a cards and there rival equal out to a "Who went first or who pilled more" situation, him and Vito both have 6/5, and even if Gordon activates his power, Vito has SoA to keep him at 6/5, and the bonus on both cards neutralize eachother. :thumbsup:

Gordon: 6/5
ability: courage: +2 power
bonus: support: +3 attack
max level: 4

+ Potential 8 power. I believe the only other Rescue cards that can achieve a higher amount are marco and Hax.
+ High power with that amazing +12 attack = way difficult to beat. This is why there aren't than many high powered Rescue or Montana. it's just too difficult to beat them. cards like Oscar and the previously mentioned cards are near impossible to take down.
+ 5 damage. Rescue is an odd clan. this means that their 2HKOs are revolve around odds (3,5,7). Gordon makes great two hit combo with Sledg, marco, Ghoub, or furious Aurora, Hax, Pam, Lothar, Bobby, Joana.
+ Im actually quite impressed with his artwork..
+ Cheap. how is this card less than 700 clintz?
+ Excellent lead off card. If you are going first and don't really know what to do, play Gordon at a medium amount of pills (say 4 or so) and you really can't go wrong. Win and have a nice 2hitKO set up or loose and be way ahead in pills. That's a win win situation in my book!

- Courage based. You can have an ability 2/4 of your turns and it makes Gordon much more predictable. Of course he would be way overpowered if there was no courage here, but nonetheless it's a con.
- SoA gives him a weak 6 power. This really isn't that bad considering he still has the Rescue bonus, but in the high pill battles, he becomes beatable.
- SoB takes away his wonderful bonus. As with all Rescue cards, SoB is a major no no. However, Gordon could still have 8 power, which is still pretty nice I'd say.
- All stops (or SoB while they play first). 6 power alone, for lack of a better phrase, is just not going to cut it. There are too many power reducers, attack manipulators, and 7-8 power cards out there that will make quick work of him in this situation. Aha, but the beauty of going second is that you don't have to play him...(all stops like Kristin and Burdock can still take advantage of him on the counter attack though)
- 4 stars. I mean you really can't complain at this, but it does eat up stars in T1 and elo.

--> Scott Ld: although he seemed like such a letdown, he has so much versatility and really is actually a solid card. But with that 4 damage not getting it done, you really need to have more of a threat coming out of your 4* slot. edge: gordon
--> Benson: both are situational cards and have similar CES (13 vs. 14), but no matter what Benson will still have 6 power. This is fine for a Rescue, however, I always prefer power over damage. Of all the conditions (revenge, confidence, courage, stop) though. I like confidence the best for Rescue because they can win a battle so easily thanks to +12 attack. The deciding factor here is that Benson is even (yes 6 is better than 5, but that's 1 wasted damage that Gordon uses to make his power stronger) and Gordon is odd. edge: gordon
--> Kerry: another courageous card. she also has 6 power though, which is indeed on the low side. Her ability is SoB which stops those nasty Piranas from taking your bonus, Bangers/Ulu Watu from trying to overpower you, and Montana from effectively neutralizing your bonus. This along with that one extra damage gives edge: kerry
--> Alec Cr: well this is one of the best cards in the game. 7/8 with +12 attack is worthy of 5 stars. Even against an all stop (presumably his worst enemy) he is a 7/4 which is the same CRS as as 6/5. Also, it beats Leviatonn, Glorg, and matches Burdock. Gordon should have no shame in losing here. edge: alec cr
--> Glosh: yet another conditional competitor. stop imo is the worst of the conditions, but it allows Glosh a potential 9 power to go along with Rescue bonus and 6 damage. That makes this match up close...still because usually it'll be 6 power (courage on the other hand will always activate twice every fight no matter what), it's edge: gordon
--> Ghoub: with his 7 damage, he actually works very well with Gordon. If we have to choose though, that 6 power with none chance to make it higher is too low to for a 4 star card. He becomes very bonus reliant and quite frankly, Piranas are just way to common out there. edge: gordon
--> Suzie: again Gordon comes up against another double support card. Suzie also has a solid 7 power. However, SoA really hurts her as she's got a measly 2 damage. Not against SoA though, that's a 6 differential. And since we're talking life gap here, it doesn't matter that 6 doesn't match with odds because if you are playing Suzie, you obviously aren't going for the knock out. The scale tipper here would be that Gordon is courage bound while suzie's ability is unconditional, but since they are used for completely different deck types (Gordon for the 2HKO deck and Suzie for the life gap deck), it's hard to say. If you are going for that 2 hit deck, use Gordon; if you're making a life diff deck, use Suzie. edge: even

Looking back at how Gordon fared against his competition, the only cards that beat him are banned. This is not as good for him as one might think though because elo uses 14 life now making 2HKOs much harder to land. Furthermore, marco and Sledg (his KO partners) are also banned giving him a much shallower pool of cards to combo with. Suzie is the better choice for elo as life gap decks will probably prevail in that mode. And in non-elo play, Alec Cr and Kerry both are preferred. This leaves Gordon in a tough position, but he is still an excellent card if you take the competition out of the equation. He is sort of a mini Hax who just scares opponents into not even trying to pill against him. Therefore, he'll win many battles at a much lower pill cost than you might expect. He also is similar to Burger and Gus, who are great cards too. Ultimately, Gordon is an awesome addition to the clan, which needed a higher powered card for less than 5 stars. I can certainly recommend this card!

His level 1 art...
That face is way too realistic

Not exactly what I'd call -amazing- but it's usable over the now banned Kerry I guess, I'd still use Glosh over him on a SoA heavy week.
