Honestly I get all but Draheera. When was the last time she was even banned by the ELO community? All it does though is kill mono GHEIST decks. I was wondering when Spyke was going to get his comeuppance. I had messaged UR and asked if Spyke is allowed in ELO, why not Caelus Cr? Spyke is actually harder to beat than Caleus as it took a card with 11 power to equal him, while for Caleus Cr it only took at card with 9 power, plus All Stars could control Caleus, all but Robb Cr cannot control Spyke.
I don't understand the ban of Draheera. You banned Rolph (he is unfair, really, I admit, but this ban weakened GHEIST, anyway), then Toro (almost as bad as Rolph, but slightly weaker; great card for 4* slot, more stable than Draheera). That's the ban I can live with. But you also banned Arkn, the strongest 2* of GHEIST. You released Mok, which is good, but falls shortly before Arkn (I would use them both). Without Arkn, there was only one reason to play mono GHEIST deck. This is Draheera. And now we don't have a reason to play mono GHEIST deck. Because we don't have a chance to win, I guess.
You banned three great GHEIST cards and released only Klaws (good enough) and Mok (sorry, I won't play 4* with 6 Power and Poison 1), which is, I repeat, weaker than Arkn (you also released Jaxx Ld, which is... worse than Methane, actually). And on the other hand you seems to raise Rescue (by unbanning Kerry and Sledg, after banning Lea and Elvira though, also released Buckler, their best 3*, which was long awaited), and Roots (by releasing Gretchen, Tuck only for banning Arno). These two clans suffered from the bans, and need to be restored. But why do you do that by lowering GHEIST? Is that GHEIST the most powerful clan in ELO, with almost constant ban of Leviatonn?
I put a lot of money in this game, and now I feel like I was cheated because now I have to play cards like Kirsten and Morlha.
By the way, see you in constant voters' ban, Sledg. Guess Kerry will join you.
