Here's my main Beef
Marco NEEDS to be in a mono-Rescue
deck, and even then (concerning ELO
mode) he is rendered completely ineffective by anyone with "Stop Ability". This is ELO
we're talking about, where nine times out of ten you fight someone who has at least two cards with stop ability in their deck.
Now consider Bodenpower
: He needs only ONE other Bangers
to reach the 9/7. Stop ability won't destroy his effectiveness (Even stop bonus doesn't cripple him that much, he still has base stats of 7/7 unlike Marco'os 5/7)
Which brings me to my main point: If you're going to ban a potential 9/7 card for being overpowered, Bodenpower
is the logical choice over Marco. Boden power works in split decks, isn't affected by Stop ability and can remain strong even against Stop Bonus at a respectable (some might argue powerful) 7/7. marco is absolutely DESTROYED by stop ability (and for that matter, so is pretty much ALL of Rescue
) In addition, Marco only works at maximum effectiveness if you get a full Rescue
deck in play.
To summarize: If you really MUST ban a potential 9/7 card, switch Marco's place with Bodenpower
. I can't make Marco effective without my full Rescue
deck, which can be easily stopped with a single Stop Ability. Wheras Bodenpower
remains effective no matter what, and he can be used in split decks. Rescue
, while powerful on paper, turn to dust in the face of Stop Ability, and Marco is no different.
