I've been pondering this one while working on Freaks Decks.
But what I've noticed is quite interesting.
In the 2* Department :
Esmerelda is simply not good enough anymore, that attack manip alone doesn't cut it .
Shazam seems to make the cut, even getting player banned often enough.
Bertha is subpar, I have to say it, 7 / 2 with +1 / +1 is meh in my book.
Magda might be an option, able to take on Power Manipulators and is still equivalent to 8 Power essentially.
The other 2*'s? Well . . not much going on for them.
In the 3* Department :
Olga is banned, which is a terrible shame, but a necessary evil. Good card, but banned.
Akendram is not only overpriced, but the only reason to consider him nowadays is because Olga , Bogdan and Grudj are banned in the 3 spot ; and to boot, Olga Noel performs better after 2 Pills!
Olga Noel is ok, but she's just that to be honest, ok, not special or great.
Quasichoco almost never sees use, but seems to be the only other useable 3 Star Freaks, though his -2 DR is off putting as I'd much rather have a card who can win the round if my R1 Poison / Heal doesn't go through.
In the 4* Department :
Bogdan is banned after a long deserved ban, but before him :
Grudj was banned! And Grudj is just as bad / annoying as Bogdan.
Liona is a solid card, but doesn't strike me as a staple. Also, I feel -12 would have been better than -10 , since Freaks have lost their SOA , Power Manip , and SOA .
Madelone is another option, but is not a round win.
