Copper remains on the banlist, with Havok and Lehane joining him. SoA pretty hard hit, but definitely still playable, says a lot about the strength of GHEIST and Roots. Yookie's available, so look to see more Roots this week. Rescue still cut down with Sledg, Elvira, Kerry out. Hawkins is on a 2 week ban streak.
Biggest surprise would have to be our first Vortex ban (iirc), Dagg has been player banned, we'll see if that changes anything.
Nothing much else, still the same couple of big cards being banned.
TLDR: Usual bans, Yookie's back, Dagg is out.
Ghumbo is a wuss. There, I said it. I have never had a problem dealing with him, even as a GHEIST or Piranas player.
I've just started playing Freaks and am liking it. Baldovino and Olga rock, Olga especially if I'm split with an Sob or SoA clan. Keeping the power advantage while still getting to play second with GHEIST and Piranas is kickass.
I got Sigma in a pack as well, and have already been wanting to try out Sakhrom, so I may just make up a half-deck. Maybe time to drag out my old Jungo's for their reliable two stars, and then nuke away with some cheap 5's!
