Ok, time for the usual predictions. A lot of this is in line with GH-Heitah
(C) and Shakra
(U) in probably means that Nightmare
are in trouble. Nightmare
already has to cope with Ghumbo
(U) and Oshitsune
(R) out, but Sledg
(C) in means that Rescue
decks will fare pretty well against SoB decks in general, while Shakra
(U) in means that Roots
decks that typically struggle against Nightmare
have a rather large beatstick they can use. I don't think mono-Piranas
will do that hot this time.
are back out in the cold. Oh drats. *sarcasm* Caelus (R) out of the ELO
can crawl back under their rock for a week. You might see the rare Skeelz
have deck, but I wouldn't count on it.
Copper (U) is an interesting wrinkle in the metagame. Normally that would mean that Sentinels would be literally everywhere in the half deck and mono, but Shakra's place in the meta game means that Sentinels are facing potentially strong SoA decks out there, something that traditionally wrecks most of the ELO
level Sentinels Add to that GHEIST
(U) this week, so they aren't exactly weak in this environment. Copper (U) might actually prove weak in this environment.
I too think a midweek switch or two will happen. Strong Rescue
means SoA clans struggle. If the SoA clan usage dips, Copper can come back out to play weakening Rescue
, making SoA attractive starting the cycle again.
