They have a lot of banned cards, they aren't that popular.

They're not popular, but they're good. Out of maybe 200 games in ELO last week, I saw Rescue about 8 times. I lost 7 and drew with one. Some top players are using Rescue, and I believe the deck is:

Cliff, Sledg, Buckler, Anita, Daussone/Slyde/Tina/Wesley, Sue, Steve, Krash (Yes no Kerry, honestly she sucks)

Yeah I noticed they have a lot of bans now (wish I could still use Elvira and Lea). Thanks for the info WiseMan. I guess I'll see for myself how well Rescue does now.

All clans are usable in ELO.

Rescue can use: Buckler, Kerry , Sledg (Pastor when sledg is ELO banned) , Steve ,Shirley , Sue, Krash and Daussone to make quite a good ELO deck.

No! Don't listen to Battery! Rescue are completely unplayable!!

...Actually he's right but I would much rather never see them again. smiley But if you MUST, my personal recommendation would be to run Cliff over Sledg. Unless you're playing Pussycats, you just can't DR Cliff in Revenge... At 6 + 12, he is about as good as an 8 power if his bonus isn't blocked... And he can KO with a lot of pesky cards that might get through even if you old them. Cliff was what made Rescue fearsome, and somehow when Sledg came back, everyone forgot how good he was. smiley

I would run both actually. Sledg is still a monster. I can't count how many times I saw both of them in one hand, smiley

I personally prefer Sledg He has 1 more power (1 less damage dosn't mean much to rescue) and his bonus is protected.

Sledge is also revenge based so can be played around.

I agree with AaaBattery despite the typo in the last sentence. I find Sledg more stable than Cliff although Cliff is more threatening. It's just a playstyle preference.

Running both is also legit tho, seeing Rescue has many usable 2*

Sledg 5*
Cliff 5*
Steve 2*
Larry 2*
Sue 2*
Lothar/Krash/Vinny 2*
Pam/Tina/Buckler/Slyde 3*
Any Rescue 4*

Somewhat borderline legit I guess.

I personally like Nancy. After winning a round, put Nancy out. Still pretty scary. decent bluff, very scary if goes through
