I definitely do see your point, but for me personally, it's more worrisome when an entire clan has to be planned against. You can't build a good ELO
deck without having a plan for dealing with SoA and high attack manip. Kalindra, on the other hand, is just one card that may or may not get drawn, and definitely does not guarantee a win.
I think she joins a large group of other conditional "ha ha I win" cards, including, but not limited to:
-Any strong LPD
-"Super" poisoners (Ex: Azel
-Huge attack manip cards with high gap (Ex: Sammy
-High powered or high attack manip 8 damage SoA (Ex: Cliff
-High-gap pill recovery cards (Ex: Tsubame
The reason she seems so scary right now is that most people just aren't used to accounting for her. When everyone fully understands her "automatic win" conditions, she will be much easier to face.
Just my two cents... I definitely do understand why a lot of people feel she's a cheap card, though, and I am definitely not opposed to her catching a player ban.
is my favorite "conditional auto win" combo ever. Whether Tino
wins or loses, a furied Tsubame
with bonus can 1HKO afterwards, in some cases creating a fork that there is absolutely no way to beat by Round 2. Better yet, it's possible to build a deck with the both of them that holds up fairly well vs SoB, SoA, and attack manip.
