He's a big guy for sure. But I'd say that's actually his weakness. 5* means the other cards in the deck might not be the best cards. In other words, beat him by defeating most everyone else.
For example: I bluff my Sunder or other decent 3*, they usually play they're Ghumbo with a decent amount of pillz. I'm ready with my other cards to take the game. But I use nukes like Jay, so that may not be one of the best examples.
Anyone else have their way to beat that beast of a Swamp Man?
Many cards can take down Ghumbo.
Marina (potential to win or remove 3 damage).
Wolfgang (same as above)
Dawn (same as above)
Selma (her +1 pill acts as a +14 attack if you overpil and win)
Smokey Cr (even more attack potential than Selma)
And so on...
Lol Ghumbo isn't even that bad. Any card can defeat any card.
I would count archibald and bryan. that's the only reason why i use 3 la junta cards with my eklore + roots cards
Danae. - ja
Dagg. - ja
Deea - uh not really ?
Marina (potential to win or remove 3 damage). - you forget the sob of ghumbo, so dont
Wolfgang (same as above) - dont
Dwan (same as above) - yeah, have you ever seen her in elo ?
Rolph - yeah up to 4 pills
Askai - yeah see is just sexy
Mindy - ja
Selma (her +1 pill acts as a +14 attack if you overpil and win) - ja but what if ghumbo geusses right ? and gets 1 more pill ? you get pill disadantage and massive life disadvantage
Smokey Cr (even more attack potential than Selma) - again not really, you will just get more pills back IF you win
Kristin - ja
Vengeful Chiara - ja chiara is beast
Caelus - ja
Corvus - just as smokey - as selma it is tricky
Mono Scubb - well this one is very tricky with low power but he can be a good bluff to but so can ghumbo
Mono Sandro - yeah
Mono Sasha - yeah
Mono Taljion - yeah if both use 1 pill then its an equal fight and taljion will win but over 1 pill on ghumbo and he loses pill for pill
Mono John - jup
Mono Oscar - jup
Confident Katja -jup
Copper - jup
so some are quite tricky and this is equal pill battles, and ghumbo is mostley easy to play around his counters, except for if the oppenent has 2 or more effective counters.when it is 2 you might still get him through if you want to, depending on who starts the game.also ghumbo can be bluffed to ! i dont think by any means that ghumbo should be banned, he is very good but yeah, most of not every clan have there big boys.
A ton of cards can take him down. And even when you don't, he's a hefty 5 stars, meaning the other cards are bad. Another thing I notice:
If ghumbo is played, they don't pill big knowing people will bluff. So, using a good amount of pillz, he's beatable.
