Piranas deserves to have Ulrich unbanned. Piranas is a support clan that often requires 3/4 rounds won to obtain victory and you cannot justify this with pillz manip.
Junkz has pillz manip, dr, and works in half decls.
Rescue is a prominent support clan with plentiful dr.
La Junta is also best played mono, has good dr's and defeat cards, and usually needs only 2 rounds to win.
Nightmare has both damage and life manip and work well in half decks.
Piranas are fine now since they have Rekved and Parmabarb as new releases. Mono Piranas is currently my favorite deck in sv ELO because it is a great counter vs. Rescue, Allstars and Pussycats and their pillz abilities combined with the attack manip (Rekved, Raeth, Taljion, (Amiral Coco) is great with only 10 starting pillz
Bonnie, Smokey, Lizbeth and Ulrich are all great cards, and they all don't deserve a ban because they're OP as a card (maybe Lizbeth and Ulrich) but because they're great in their clan. Unbanning them is not necessary now with Rekved and Parmabarb.
UR Staff did a great job with banning Lizbeth and giving those 2 new cards
LOL ^ Ulrich's DR with Calliope in the clan and the ability to manipulate the opponent's pills. If we want to unban Ulrich, might as well unban Jeena. And Uranus. And Graks. Pirahnas are GREAT now, so don't give me that "They're OKAY if you HAVE to use them" crap. The only one who could possibly be unbanned is Smokey, because banning Lizbeth was obv player's choice.
