are both ridiculously OP. We've gone beyond power creep. This is more like power sprint, now. Yeah, Raven
is sort of mitigated by SoA (down to a "nearly harmless" 8/6, I guess, in a clan full of cards that will get similarly superior stats against the typical SoA card.) But 10 damage is monstrous. It's enough to laugh in the face of most DRs. They can't protect you against Junta's brute force anymore.
I disagree with anybody who thinks she won't be OP in ELO
. Numerous cards have shown us that a card that *has* to be stopped can't be allowed to have base 8 power. There is enough stuff that forces pills, even in Junta, that holding on to Raven
until late in the game basically guarantees you a better than 50/50 win chance, without any kind of strategic or intelligent play. Not cool.
, of course, is a better Bonnie, and as Oracle pointed out, makes a killer splash. Once people figure out how strong he really is, we may very well start seeing a lot of him in ELO
What happened to cards that are good because of synergies that they have? Has UR really progressed completely beyond the need for finesse play?
