Nope. ELO-wise, Michael. That extra 2 damage is essential.
Clan-wide, except for a couple cards, there's a lack of damage. With massive attack and power manipulation cards like Chiara Cr, Minerva, Michael, Sandro, Dr. Falkenstien, Belgosi, and Sasha the key to winning Skeelz is usually winning two to three rounds anyhow. In ELO you're not gonna KO with Skeelz most likely.
Aylen is a glass cannon. She can do massive life gap but with no manipulation and seven power it's hard to hit. Same reason clans like Berzerk aren't used.
Michael is close, but he has three things going against him. He's conditionally based, has no DR, and reducing the enemies power is always better then adding to your own. Ill explain why if I must.
Two damage isn't worth more then all that. I do run Minerva and Michael in my deck though.
How is five damage too low when all the Skeelz staples except Michael have that much or less?
Sorry, who are you to make such an argument . 1300 record is not much, you have not been to the higher rankings of elo.
umm i am sorry but 5 damage is a pain dude. Id even say Dr. Falkenstein is a better card for elo (ignoring star count). why? attack manipulation. facing DR + attack manip, falk has to only pill once, whereas minerva has to pill more, just to get damage reduced.
i repeat again, winning 3 rounds is viable, but you will cry when something like ditha, or even furied diana hit you on the last round and you go cry. and 3 rounds against something like montana is just... not viable.
what use has DR on a 5* got? you see, all of skeelz character has crap damage, and throwing away your 5*... not smart. most of the time that DR is just useless.
sorry aylen is a way better option for a 5*, if I ever run skeelz again. 10 life gap is much more appealing. moreover, you should be able to burn quite a lot of pillz anyway with your sasha and falk.
And who are you to say I can't judge characters just because I don't play much? How arrogant are you?
Where does Dr. Falkenstein come into play here? I said FIVE star. The Dr. Is a four star.
Things like Ditha and Aylen are glass cannons. Good luck hitting with them against an opponent who knows what theyre doing with heavy attack or power manipulation. I don't like DR on five stars but it makes for a good combo with Redra and a good fallback plan if you lose the round.
5 dmg for a 5* is horrid in ELO.
Especially against a clan such as Montanas, winning 2 rounds will probably cause you to lose with poor damage. Minerva is VERY good, but I still think Michael outclasses her.
Every clan has weaknesses and struggles versus certain clans. Can't hold that against them.
I think we all agree Minerva is not Skeelz' best 5* for ELO.
Taxt man,sorry but your arguments are pretty weak. I don't mind having almost the same ELO score as me,but by the time you invest 5 stars in an ELO deck,the current meta at least supports that it gotta inflict PAIN. And 5 damage is pretty meh. Sure it can win rounds and protect at the same time but come on,even I,with 1300 ELO in a good week,would probably let her pass.
