Wow, very nice release!
Randal: 6/4 3* soa power + 2.
This card is useful because we have another Bangers elo soa. He is for those who like Graff but not his damage. The drawback however is his power... Luckily his bonus fixes that!
Lyndia: 7/4 3* courage: bonus protection
This is also a pretty sweet card, but how will it fare against Oxen, rubee, and Harold. Not to mention zatman. As good as it is, it's 5th in line.
Ivy: 6/2 poison 2 min 4 -12 opp attack min 8 2*'s
In my oppinion, this card is good. A poison card like this really helps Montana, as their other poison cards just dont have what you're looking for. I'd take Ivy over ficcanasco, and maybe Ace, but spiagi and Prince Jr are still better.
Nancy: 7/5 5*'s, confidence: +1 life per damage support attack + 3
likewise with any + 1 life per damage, the maximum damage is 5. And again, with the exception of Manfred, their power is typically 7. This card is genius on UR's behalf. It is hard to win with this card, but if you do, you get a large impact. This in my oppinion is the star of the release, but that's just me.
9.5 out of 10
This is one of my favorite releases in awhile!
All 4 are very nice characters.
Nancy is arguably the best 5* Rescue ever. I'd say she challenges Marco Cr and edges out Sledg. Rescue also have plenty of DR characters to support her.
Randal: This is Noodile Cr but ability SOA is generally more useful than bonus SOA. He is 8 power except against Piranas and Nightmare, where his SOA wrecks havoc. 3* SOA's are some of the best characters (such as Elvira, Rubie, and Leviatonn) and there is no reason to expect any less from this character. I've often wished Graff had more damage and here we have it.
Ivy: This is an efficient 2* for Montana who will either force pill or draw out SOA and obsoletes all their previous poisoners.
Lydia: She will at least challenge Harold and Pallack. Harold has proven to be playable in ELO, which implies Lydia will be equally playable especially in SOB heavy metagames. Uppers do not have another Courage character so there are no issues there.
Hell yeah, UR messed up with the banner and shows karazan ld and now the price of Roots goes up like crazy
Randal is not a bad card
I would use him after Loocio
definitely gonna use him over Graff (even though he does cost one more star)
I don't like a card with SOA and low damage like Graff
Lydia.. eh.. wth??
I might be wrong, but protection bonus does not worth the risk of using courage
maybe UR staff trying not to make Uppers more overpowered because Uppers usually has weaknesses against SOB clan
but really, Montana got Gianfranco, why Uppers not?
thankfully Lydia has decent stats for level 3. let's just say she is 7/4 no ability. it's easier to think that way
hopefully she becomes cheap and new players can afford her
Ivy.. wow.. this is NICE, poison for Montana? yes please!
why I said nice? because Montana lack of damage.
a level 2 card that could deal up to 8 damage (10 in ELO) is more than welcomed in Montana
too bad she only has 6 power, but 7 power would make her really OP
I will have a hard time to choose which two stars that I'm going to use in a Montana deck
Nancy is.. eh..
I don't like her
too situational and to use her fully, fury is a must
if you don't think you are going to fury Nancy, then you can go for Aurora (it's only 2 life differences anyway, and Aurora is not situational)
a little bit of rant:
I want bigger space for our biography..
