Baldovino is one of the best 5*s in the game imo. If you understand how pill manipulation works you can compensate for the atk/pwr manip and overpill getting in the poison and the pill reduction, making up for the overpilling you had to do. Now it might only negate the disadvantage you'd get against atk/pwr manip but atk/pwr manip is not going to kill you if you know how to play around it.
What are you talking about? In ELO Baldovino gets the full extent of his bonus.
In my opinion many of the high star Ulu Watu are amazing but the lower star cards aren't quite as great meaning that in most modes other than T2 Ulu Watu is not easy to play with.
I personally think that many of the 5* cards in Piranas are overrated. Despite having similar, or the same, stats and/or abilities as a number of cards in other clans the 5*s seem, for the most part, consistently priced far above what the average cost for 5*s in other clans are. Sure, the many of the 5* cards for Piranas are amazing but not to where they cost almost, or over, 20k on average. Perhaps it's just because the market manipulators decided that Piranas were the easiest clan to manipulate in terms of 5* prices but some of the prices are ridiculous. Lizbeth is definitely not worth 70k. She looks like another case of Cortez price economics.
@Oracle: Baldovino is great in that because of his damage, he doesn't have to hit first turn. If your opponent overpills in round 1 to beat you, Baldovino punishes him hard for it.
I agree that Serena is not a great card compared to other Ulu 5*s. It's hard to say if she's overrated, though -- I seldom see her.
Perhaps its just me then.... because when people catches you bluffing/overpilling with Baldovino it would get pretty bad. i personally 5*s are not the way to go for Freaks because of poison.
btw dalhia and Ahkab gets so overrated its not even funny. i dont get why people dont use Bloodh... his damage is so good. he has helped me out in so many matchups...
