Overall, very solid release-- no crazy OP cards like Noctezuma
, but no trash like Rhody
are moving in the direction of pill manip, and this is good thing. A 9/2 wall with pill manip is great against attack manip clans, where he can easily overpill against their bonus and get pills back on the win. Weakness is low damage, but building a deck with either a lot of DR, or one centered on 3-round wins, and this becomes less of an issue. Probably becomes the second choice for a 2* in Bangers
- Where in the world was this card? SOA is strong, reprisal is my favorite conditional (you can even avoid Stop cards easily), 7/4 stats are solid for 3*. Great addition to the Sentinel
, only downside is loads of competition, though I think she beats out most of them, especially in half-decks.
- Stats are technically worse than Stompah
for 1 more star, but consider the clan she's in: most cards will have to pill significantly to get past the Uppers
bonus, and if they beat up on, say, Wendel
, they have to contend with a 9/7, -10 attack beast. Furthermore, a 5* common lowers the bar of entry for newer players to play Uppers
and do well-- right now the best high-star Uppers
cards are generally rare and/or expensive, so it's nice to have a cheaper competitive option.
