thing is i think Don pretty much offers the same thing, but Don is usually a better card, if SoA is not present. and Avola is used more than Don.
thing is, the stop: ability on Belladone is so pathetic, i mean if it was +3 damage then it would definitely be used. as of now, +7 damage with -12 attack is only just 19 attack (yah seems like a big number let me explain) still that 7 damage. ok a random SoA card, say Rico needs to have 2+ pillz to beat Belladone, which is not actually that much if you think about it.
Jeena, Bristone even Flora are good counters.
Belladone can be wonderful in a good hand (13+), but drawing something not as good Angelo Spiaghi Gianfranco Belladone, id much rather have Avola.
I'm gonna use Beladonne over Avola.
Like someone said, I think you're underestimating her.
7/7 -12atk min.8 +7 atk against SOA ? That's a powerhouse, even better than Stella.
And, the best thing is that you can use it in mono or half.
Avola needs to be played in mono and hen she faces a Roots/GHEIST she totally dies.
Beladonne, you're my first choice for 5* in ELO now.
@0 the oracle
You say belladona is so pathetic because Jeena, Bristone and Flora reduce her damage, and you don't see anything to counter Mokra?? Really??
I think all 4 cards are great and definitely will be used depending on the amounts of SoA, Belladona gets better than Avola, even without SoA clans running rampant there would still be enough ability SoA running around to hurt your Avola. It's still a matter of personal preference, a choice between 2 more damage or a whole lot more stability... Maybe you could even run both, I've seen Avola + Don hands before... (btw next week Moses, Spiaghi and mona banned, LOL)
While I do think Mokra is really good, it's not close to Spyke or Kalindra and won't have that much impact, simply because it's still only 5 damage that can easily be reduced... Though it's low min in power reduction means it's got awesome winning power, it's going to be be seen a lot, especially with Uranus unbanned (which is a good counter to it).
Stalfhaust's ability looks awesome on paper, though 6 power is not exactly great, that means almost every card in elo outpowers it on equal pillz.
Okay so I played Mokra yesterday for Elo, and here's what I realised. This could be just my one-sided opinion though:
You will want to win with Mokra because of that power reduciton. So his DR ability tends to be neglected most of the time. When that happens, he's basically just another Belgosi or Kluwn with a 8 attack bonus. So, yeah. He really isn't that OP'ed after all. Sure he can be a little tricky to beat but then that's about it. My stance about him getting perma-banned soon is wavering.
Correct me if i'm wrong I only played him for a few hours.
