Joe I disagree, I think the SOA of the Roots is better as a compliment to the Berzek -2 life bonus. Reason being: every time I split in an SOA clan I run into non-stop Sob clans. If I augment the Berzerk clan w 2 solid low * cards that synergize well then I'm ahead of the game. Plus individually my opp won't know how I'm pilling these 2 splash cards when I have them which equals more options for me (low pill bluff, multi-pill atk, low-pill win, SOA, etc) which will free up my Berzerks. As for the 3* Berzerk, I feel that they r some of the best utility cards in the meta (stop opp bonus, copy opp bonus, def -2 opp life, etc...) I may not run well after 1300 but until then I think I'll have a better than 50/50 chance w any deck not called mono-Huracan
Most of the cards their can take SoA and still function well, Kostner has the potential of Konrad's Gap after Round 1 for a power less and when furied makes more gap than any other card in your deck. When you get your weakest hand of Rudy, Lola, Spiaghi + Melanie it's very easy to exploit Rudy's offensive capabilities because of his 7 power.
