A new luxury yacht has appeared in the port of Clint City which can only herald the arrival of a new multimillionaire in town. For the pleasure of the few but above all for the annoyance of the majority!
Find Level 5 Gradymag, the girl with the hen that lays the golden eggs, has come to return the current trend in balls to the inner circle of the Uppers. She’s certainly an odd character who needs keeping an eye on, which is exactly what Level 3 Carmen from the Sentinel clan intends to do. Meet Doug Snop too, the Level 2 Bangers dog, as well as new Rescue clan recruit, Level 4 Campbell.

@ DaddySteel : You're joking, right ? That's one second rare Rescue card with which they hope to draw attention away from the continuous Huracan rares, while still doing almost the same thing. But I wouldn't call Doug Snop, Carmen or Gradymag "amazing". They are good, yes, but not that much. Same goes for the Rescue card. I doubt people will use Doug, and Gradymag has way too much competition ... she'll most likely be seen only in high-star decks. Carmen is the star of the release, however. I can see her gettin' love from the players. As for Campbell, he doesn't have much competition aside Kerry, so I guess people are gonna play him. Anyhow, I too was expecting a new Frozn card ... oh, well. On the bright side, it's nice to see a common 5*.
Steel X_HoA okay, "amazing" might be a step too far, but i think every card in this release makes its spot as very playable newcomer.
Some do because they are strong, some do because the competition is crap.
Besides that, we really need a huge new Frozn card. The clan is totally dead by now and has a really low amount of cards compared to others. Even Huracan which are a whole year younger have just one card less! Make up for that, UR... please
Overall, very solid release-- no crazy OP cards like Noctezuma, but no trash like Rhody either.
Doug Snop- Bangers 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 behind Graff.
Carmen- 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.
Gradymag- 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.
