I do agree that that darn Bunny
is a little too strong, and ELO
may be a bit more even without him and Kalindra
. But IMO, they are not nearly as OP as most people believe.
I feel like the "best" deck for the week is made up of exactly the cards that everybody complains about: Askai
, add your own pick of Nightmare
. I've been playing this deck a little, and I have to admit -- it's VERY easy. However, I was able to reach the same 13somethingish scores pretty easily with my Ulu/Vortex
deck as well.
Here's what I think the bottom line is, and probably the source of most people's complaints. We have 14 life. We have a lot of good mitigating cards (SoA, DR, to some extent SoB.) We have a lot of +life and LPD options available. What we don't have is a lot of base damage. 8 base damage is rare, and often has some kind of downside, and is only found on 5* cards. BUT, many cards have abilities that increase their potential gap to 8 or much more!
The natural conclusion: A good ELO
deck currently *has* to be built around good high-gap cards that are SoA and/or DR resistant. It is natural that NM high poison/LPD as well as the high damage/life gain combo of Jungo
5*s thrives in this environment. But these are just the easiest "big threat" cards to use.
Good synergy is possible with MANY strong 5*s that resist SoA, and many overlooked cards.A clever player can use cards like the seemingly shaky Sayura
with great effect. In fact, she was part of my best Top 100 deck.
