Any SOA that effects Pirana is precious, though. Most clans are lucky if they have more than 2-3 SoA at all, and the chances of facing them is low enough (and manipulating around them when they do show up) that I think it's worth the tradeoff if you're saving up for cards with a visible improvement (Lizbeth
!) rather than a handful more of rounds barely won. Maybe if Raeth
had 6 Damage or 8 Power I'd agree he's undeniably worth 7k, but he's just slacking a bit. Unless you're pairing him with Lizbeth
for a 2HKO - OP isn't, I guess - Coleridge
or even Scubb
are almost completely as good. I feel like Taljion
fills the attack manip slot more than enough, though I wouldn't say no to a new Pirana with -atk, like, say, Crunchy
Tula's not always the greatest option. Coleridge
attracts SoA but it's on her like white on rice, and there's a disturbing amount of 7 Power cards with atk/pow manip. Amiral Coco
is excellent though, and I've dropped my Hawkins Noel
for him - no plans to replace with Hawkins
definitely pulls his weight.
But by this point it's just semantics. Any of the suggested decks are good and viable, preferences like these are just what keep the game interesting.
