yes, i think we all know.... Spyke is headed to the perma ban list, especially once standard begins since he will have less counters
Regardless of how many things are wrong with that list, the fact remains--Spyke is more than a force to be reckoned with, he tramples over most of the cards in the game. Very few decks have more than 2 cards that can stop him efficiently, and in a clan where dropping an opponent by chunks of 5 or more is not a problem, Spyke will guarantee an inescapable life gap. Remember this: 4 x 13 = 52. 7 x 8 = 56. Spyke's side can be down by 30% of the pillz of the opponent and still win on an all-pill showdown. That's more than mere superiority--that's just flat out broken.
