gets a weekly ban *all the time"
You really don't see a problem with Caelus Cr
being out? Okay, here's the short list.
1) He can reduce 7 power or less to half of his power, allowing him to win a round... Well, pretty much any time. Even against Montana
bonus, he will beat a 7 powered card pill-for-pill at 7 pills or more.
2) Given his absurd round-winning ability, 8 is way too much damage.
3) He is a CR with a 200k price tag. That means he is completely out of many people's reach. Imagine if another strong card, let's say, Kalindra, was only available to older/wealthier players. How do you think people would react?
4) The current meta compensates for the fact that SoA clans break DR by handicapping them just a little bit. A super-powerful SoA-proof card being in ELO
would mean that either SoA clans need to get all of their good cards unbanned (and then the game needs to be rebalanced in many other ways) or SoA clans are completely wiped out (and then strong ability clans like Vortex
become OP, because there would be virtually no risk of running into SoA clans with them.)
Man, UR is totally, like, a delicate eco-system, man. You can't just go banning and unbanning cards Willy
-nilly because they individually seem like they might be okay... man.
TLDR: Current bans/unbans are more or less fine, although I still feel like Rescue
got a small advantage they didn't need or deserve.
