Maybe I didn't express my concerns very well. It's not that I think Berzerk
are totally unplayable, it's just that I feel they're a little lack-luster without Spyke
, that they need a bit more oomph, or they risk ending up with the same level of interest as La Junta
"You forget that the Berzerk
bonus doesn't become useless after you hit once, so Bogdan
combined will do about 11 damage in ELO
(due to min. 3), and so will Elvis
(up till min. 2).
Depending on the other cards the amount will vary but it's not a big difference (esp. since Berzerk
min. is better than Freaks' min)."
That's a good observation, but it doesn't change the fact that a single Freaks
card can hit incredibly hard. Because of that, they have more strategies available to them than the Berzerk
. You can mix Freaks
with a DR or wall half-deck, and play a damage denial game... Or hit with a life gain/heal card, ensuring that your Freaks
bonus goes off for the maximum number of rounds.
Another up side is that the Freaks
bonus helps fight life gain. If your opponent gains a few life, you get 13 damage out of hitting with Bogdan
, while Elvis
still hit for 11.
Last, but not least, Freaks
has a lot more cards with round-winning abilites than Berzerk
does, giving them excellent clan synergy...
Good card suggestions! Something like that would help round Berzerk
out. A 4* with 8/5 prot: bonus would be an awesome addition to their lineup!
