Their support ability makes it just so powerful... Is there any REAL counter?

I can beat rescue with every single clan, except for fang pi clang and allstars

Well considering this thread is in the "Strategy and Tactics: Tournaments" section then no they aren't if you are using uppers or montana in your deck smiley

"Look at my ratio, I only use Rescue."

Since when did ratios have any bearing on player skill? I know people with almost flawless ratios, but they mostly play in fight club.

Anyway, Recue have plenty of counters.

Piranas are very strong against them. Nightmare can do well too.
Uppers can overpower them with base stats and deal with most of their bonus.
Montana counter their bonus entirely above 8 attack.
and so on...

"Finding good Montanas is so hard"

What do you mean by this? Montana are one of the easiest clans to build a deck with on all budget types.

We might as well ask "Is anything invincible" and we always get the same answer.
Starting from rescue, like said all Soa and Sob clans are poison to them.
Assuming we went for piranas, the clans that won't rely on bonus to fight are on a bit of an upper hand. Like skeelz, who on turn are weaker to attack and power mods. And it goes on and on and on....

All stars also slaughter Rescue- they bring their 6 powered card down to 4 smiley

watch for SOB's though

If you are bad, yes, they are invincible. Otherwise, not even close. If you go 1300+ in ELO, you start noticing a very sudden drop in the number of Hugo + Montana and Rescue decks....

Rescue isn't invincible. They're just really annoying and a pain in the smiley to beat.

The strongest against them is All Stars i would say.. they dont have too many options vs cards like Randy, Jesse, and Marina

Piranhas were a really really really bad match up for against Rescue for a few weeks there until the arrival of Taljion. and if you don't run Taljion, the edge is still to Rescue... sorry for the Piranha fans. Rescue staples match up extremely well vs SOB clans.

Nightmares without Ghumbo also do not match up that well. Sargh is a great counter to them... but no one runs Sargh really.

Lea Kerry Sledg and Elvira shuts down a lot of Piranha and Nightmare cards
Montana is not quite an even counter... they are forced to pill once, which tilts the battle to Rescue slightly

Junx staple cards match up quite well (Rowdy, Gibson, Gil).

A combination of SOA and SOB clan is another strong counter. use SOA cards to shut down Rescue abilities like DR and + life, and use the SOB cards to win rounds. but SOA becomes tricky vs any Rescue hand that is running Glosh/Vinnie.

overall, Rescue is a solid clan that can handle most decks they face.
