Time for some people to shut up
Bonus is not disappointing. It is NOT like Junta and FPC. For starters, a 7/1 card hit by Uranus
will still do 3 damage. However, it is not better in all ways, as it has a minimum. Pretty balanced I'd say. Will work well in half-decks with attack manipulators who can finish off the enemy with 2 life.
Backlash.. It is a good idea. It's pretty much the only way to make a 8/8 card that isn't overpowered. I do agree that the 2 cards with Backlash could be better, but they are playable. People seem to think they have average stats. NO, duh, they have that +2 damage.
This week, I've been using Freaks
half. My main strategy was poisoning on the first round, winning the second one, then reducing damage with Wolfgang
. Such strategy would fail against Berserk. Especially since their bonus min is below Freaks' bonus min.
Also, this is the first release, for now, Backlash is just an experiment. They will balance it later. First Vortex
release wasn't too playable either
