Haha, everyone afraid of this card
well, I remember that many good and rich players use Pussycats (esp before UR banned semi permanent card in ELO)
I think we are back to that era where Pussycats was really effective with their low star half deck
for example: Ivana, Muze, Cherry, and Clover
this half deck is really versatile while free up some room for big cards on the other half
Remember how Eddie skyrocketed up in the Format election shortly after he was released? Yeah you don't see him being ELO banned much anymore. I reckon the same thing will happen to Clover (let's hope I don't have to eat my own words on this one).
Clover is really good, but I definitely don't think she deserves such an aggressive ban. Like many of the other recent releases that people have been afraid of in ELO, she is fairly easy to play around if you have a solid deck.
People are probably imagining worst-case scenario plays, like 1st turn furied Muze with Clover in hand. That sounds scary... Unless you're running at least half SoB, or SoA, or you have an LPD card, or a Heal card, or maybe even a strong -Life card like Hilly Billy... OR you read the opponent's play correctly.
I think people in this game get "OP" and "situationally OP" confused a lot.
I'm guessing it has something to do with Luis ld missions. People are sick and tired of playing against Pcats in DT/DM, so they take their anger out on elo elections. Eddie also got banned for a couple of weeks when that Ulu Watu ld came out, which made absolutely no sense whatsoever
