This week in ELO...
UmExcuseMe - Imperator English - Monday 24/05/2010, 09:34

I think it's pretty clear that the weekly bans shape the ELO environment, so I thot I'd start this thread on the decks that will be prevalent this week in the upper echelons of ELO. Opinions welcome!

Let's start with who's on the ban list. Bye bye, All Stars. After being traumatized by AS+Eyrik decks all last week, both Marina and Striker get the boot (good riddance). Caelus, Copper and Hugo keep their usual place in the sin bin. You'll still see Roots half decks, but at least Shakra won't be there. Same goes for the ever-popular mono-Rescue, who are slightly weakened by the ban on Sledg.

Who escaped this week? There's Morphun, so expect plenty of cheesy DR + heavy hitter decks, and you can forget about subtlety because they'll just absorb everything and deliver the KO in the later rounds. Speaking of cheesy, Sylth amazingly survives the cut (oh joy), and the truly sadistic will play Morphun and Sylth together.

Who else? Let's see, Toro made it, and so did Oshitsune. And...what's this? Uh oh, with Ghumbo, we're all in hot soup. All members of Nightmare and GHEIST survived, which means it's an SOA/SOB week, folks!

My prediction of prevalent decks:
Morphun + Sylth cheese
Morphun + any cheese
Nightmare
GHEIST
Nightmare/GHEIST
GHEIST/Nightmare (are you sensing a pattern?)
Piranas (for those who can't afford Nightmare)
Skeelz (anti-SOA/SOB...good luck beating Morphun)

@GH-Heitah: I suspect the reason Caelus isn't dominating ELO this week is because both Hugo and the three major All Stars (Marina, Striker and Robb) are legal. This, to me, does not indicate that "too many things" own Caelus.

The big problem with Caelus is that on weeks when he is around, you either play him or design a deck around handling him. If one card defines the environment, then it's too powerful.

Frankly, I have the same issue with All Stars defining the environment, and I'd love a permanent ELO ban on Marina for that reason.

Well, anyone can start the thread each week.

But I think we should probably just use this thread for this week, and start the new thread next week. Otherwise it'd be even more confusing.

Use All Stars? They have both Marina and Striker unbanned this week, and every single card in their arsenal can at least match Caelus pill-for-pill.... what not to love?

You should use a Spiaghi in the ELO deck aswell
