Wow way to remove the only Playable 5 star for Montana and one of their only good 3 stars as well. and you still won,t bring back Muze so the Pussy Cats are unplayable so thank you. You just made elo unplayable for me.

@willhog: If you sell your Mona you can pretty much buy a new deck...

The mode nosedived back into the dregs it came from, Freaks, Nightmare and again the same decks running rampant
wow!!! what good choices to make the mode entertaining and diverse!!!
everybody's playing the same deck over and over and over and over and over...

and I think I posted this comment a couple of times over the past years...
real innovative thinking going on there!

"make a suggestion then K1NG!! you fat know-it-all"

yep.. did so, multiple times, didn't work out
so I resort to this...
expressing my boredom...

bye ELO mode, see you around!

XU52 will rarely be banned with Mechakolos in the elo voting system at the same time. This causes ghiest to be excellent every week. And there was a debate on the french forum on having 2 5 star cards in elo since the chances of drawing one is 70 percent + so if someone plays XU52 and Mechakolos they will have a 70+ percent chance of drawing one in a battle.

@moe XU52 doesn't even deserve a ban. His power is lower than most cards he'll face. Having 2 5 stars will make the rest of your deck 2 and 3 stars(unless you want to go 4 2, 1 3, 1 4, 2 5), do you really think that is a strong deck when you are relying on 2 cards? Just beat them and you'll be fine. Most of the time they will only get 1 of them anyway.

People are ruining elo with their ban happy nature.

@Vinyl umm yes he does with Mechakolos released and Arkn unbanned XU52 should deserve a ban to make ghiest less strong or at a minimum Arkn.

@moe umm no he doesn't. Most decks wouldn't even use them together. Even if XU52 is banned, would you call for Wardom to be banned next and so on until only Mechakolos is there last 5 star?

How is XU52 overpowered anyway? Alot of cards have more power than him and can easily beat him in high pill fights. Sure he has high damage but if that isn't a reason to ban him. Arkn should never be banned again, he shouldn't have been banned in the first place. Seriously people need to stop being so ban happy.

What are the chances of a non ghiest week nowadays? 0 percent since Mechakolos Arkn and XU52 are here. Player bans vs ghiest are getting less and less useful since if XU52 is banned Mechakolos is here a powerful subsitute and XU52 is here if Mechakolos is here. It is really a joke if Oshitsune gets banned for example then Nightmare will not be played that much near the 1300+ elo but with ghiest no matter what way you go you will always get a useable ghiest deck which is not right. What you are not noticing is with the major bans of Montana Bangers and Uppers those clans which in the past were perfect counters to XU52 have now been nerfed and gives XU52 a more dominant edge. A good aim of banning XU52 will be to reduce this every week ghiest possibility of occuring. They will still have Mechakolos and Wardom which are excellent replacements but that will limit down the pool of ghiest's useable 5 stars

You do realize that XU52 is banned this week which is no different at the moment then him being staff manned.
