Having a hard time understanding why Marco is banned, while Copper is not.
They are both very similar.
Both rely on their ability to get them 9 power. SoA drops them both to a useless power of 4 or 5
Copper has +1 damage over Marco
Marco has +4 attack over Copper
To me that seems like they are of equal power, yet one is perma banned, and the other is not even touched. This make no sense to me.
I understand you and until a certain point I agree you.
But maybe the reason is that Copper gets pretty more weak against SoAs.
You see, against a SoA, wasting just 4 pillz (3 + the reserve one), Copper has an attack of 24, and Marco 32. Say 7 pillz and Copper has and attack of 36 and Marco, 47. 8 points of difference in the first case, 11 in the second. Thats something to take into consideration.
agree, 4p+8atk is far easier than 5p+12atk to deal with, and 1 more damage does not pay for that.
