Is it worth it to buy cards that are almost always ELO banned? Like Bogdan or Ongh, for example.. Thanks..

Some are, some aren't

Of your two I would say Ongh is worth it (viable in halfs and mono Jungo and isn't as frequently banned as Troompah) Plus Jungo is insanely strong

Bogdan...iffy. He is rarely let loose, I wouldn't reccommend unless you are wealthy enough to just have the cards. And without him Freaks are nowhere near as good

If you're really serious, yes. It's good to have the cards at hand all the time, so whenever a clan is clearly dominant in ELO you are prepared with the cards to abuse it. I know some players who sell cards as they are banned for the week, buy the unbanned cards, and repeat the process. This loses clintz as time trickles down, and most of their ELO winnings end up sustaining that loss.

Thanks.. I followed Duessel's advice and bought both.. Hopefully, one of them gets unbanned in the weeks to come.. Do you know which Freaks card would be a good replacement for Bogdan? Seeing as he banned at the moment..

Grudj or Wolfgang are decent replacements for Bogdan. smiley

It really depends. Any deck will help you grow in elo, and become a better player as you learnt he meta

Madelone is fantastic. Assuming no stop, she allows you to pill at any value and get a return. You "win" no matter if her ability or bonus triggers. She's not better than Bogdan, but imagine what she and your new Ongh can do together!

I actually used Baldovino and Madelone in a halfdeck since Grudj is also ELO banned at the moment.. I later changed Madelone to Wolfgang for some more DR.. Finally got to 1300 because of them.. smiley

Here it is.. I'm thinking I should replace Nahema with Ongh and Baldovino with Bogdan or Grudj once they're not banned anymore..
