Uhm the elo life has changed from 12 to 14 (for everyone, regardless of elo score). So you can figure out poison is better now.
recently alot of poison cards had been banned by staff, like Azel, dolly, Muze.
strong new cards to consider are : Saki, Clover, Jean, Angelo and Beeboy
if you have further questions, ask
It's 14 life now so people can't KO each other so easily anymore. The downside of this is that Freaks' bonus lands in more damage.
