Dear game designers,
I think we can do with at least 2 more leaders now that we have new abilities. One of my earlier campaigns for a high level Sakrohm SOA has borne fruit, so decided to press my luck further :-D
Now that we have at least 3 new abilities (Reprisal, Protection Power, Protection Damage), can't we have at least 2 more leaders, preferably the Reprisal Leader (preferably a 7/4 with Reprisal: Team +3 Power as ability, just the reverse of Ambre, but with 1 more power because Reprisal is less often used than courage)
a Protection Leader, preferably Protection Power (because otherwise a whole host of DRs will fall in the market), working the same way as Fixit can, against cards like Caelus.
So all members, what say?
We can arrive at a consensus and can forward our suggestions to UR admin and see what happens :)
I posted an idea about a new ability in some other forum post, but it may be an interesting Leader card.
Null. Depending on Null, they would nullify different abilities/bonuses
Null: Power - All +/- power abilities and bonuses nullified
Null: Damage - All +/- damage abilities and bonuses are nullified
Null: Life - All +/- life abilities and bonuses are nullified (includes heal and poison)
Null: Attack - All +/- attack abilities and bonuses are nullified
Null: Abilities/Bonuses - All abilities and/or bonuses are nullified (including your own)
If Null: Abilities/Bonuses was a card, it may even promote some rainbow decks if it was Null: Bonus
I suggested these as an ability because they're very situational. If it were a Leader, I would only see Null: Abilities/Bonuses making it, and only if they nulled both your abilities/bonuses along with your opponents.
Note: The abilities/bonuses are nullified and not stopped, so even against cards like Stop: +x attack would be nulled (or not activated at all, since they're not stopped). If they are however stopped, and you had Null (Say you were using Roots/GHEIST and had the Null ability), they would still be nulled.
Leviatonn/Glorg/Dieter/Shakra/Nahi Cr/Morlha/Burdock are shutdown cards. For the Null: Ability/Bonus Leader, it would be a shutdown for both sides. Your opponent's cards AND your cards. It'd be like all 8 cards have "No Ability" and no clan mates in hand. You may have a slight advantage, but that's what leaders are supposed to do. However, you may also help your opponent. They may be using cards with high stat cards with Backlash and you'd be negating their backlash.
As an ability, Null:Power/Damage/Life/Attack, they only stop power/damage/life/attack. A lot more situational than either SoA or SoB. That's why I'm saying it doesn't trigger Stop. Against a card like El Divino, Null: Attack would be a shutdown against him. However, Null: Attack against a card like Chiro wouldn't stop anything.
Depending on how situational Null is, they may even stop your own ability/bonus. If Null isn't too conditional, if you used a card with Null: Attack in a clan like Sentinel/Junkz/Sakrohm/Uppers/Montana/Huracan, your +/- attack would even be nulled (UR may just not even create the ability in one of these clans then?). Or, if you were using Null: Attack and had Hugo, your + attack will also be nulled.
