Skip to bot for TLDR version.
As you can see, Copper still running about for some odd reason, probably to give Sentinel more play. Both SoA clans hit hard again - Roots crippled, GHEIST lose RolphToroBristoneLeviatonn - the Bristone ban hurts particularly hard. Rescue are still probably out, none of their staple SoBs, as well as Elvira. Nightmare probably out again as Oshitsune is back on the banlist. Chiara still out.
DR's are hit pretty hard as well - Pegh, Arno, Bristone, Uranus, VermynN out, but Spiaghi's back in play. Look to see more Montana even though Mona is out. Apart from that, usual suspects (Marina, Blaaster, Dorian, Bodenpower - basically high power high damage cards) are out as well
Piranas still running strong, so figure to see a lot of them, I know I'll be running a Pirana deck.
TLDR: Copper still on the loose and probably more rampant than last week. Lots of Piranas.
Since starting UR I have always used my votes to Keep my favorite cards. This has never seemed to work, and the cards are always banned. Not seeing the results makes me feel my votes dont count.
How does everyone else use their votes? Did everyone also give up on trying to keep their cards, and now just try to ban others. Would being able to see the results help cause people to vote to keep more?
What's the worst draw you've seen your opponent have in elo? (By worst, I mean hardest to beat, opponent has very strong hand)
I went up against an opponent who drew 4 Ulu Watu powerhouses: Buck, Nanook, Hikiyousan, Shayna. I felt like there was nothing I could do. Had I pilled just right, I probably could have won, but minor mistake, and it was 2HKO.
I've played mono-Roots in ELO recently and I've been enjoying a pretty solid success rate.
I've seen a lot of complaining about Roots been wrecked by bans, but SoA is such a fearsome bonus that even cards not often used, like Amanie or Jerry, are still forces to be reckoned with in the right situations. Also, no-one seems to be fielding many Stop: abilities because Roots and GHEIST aren't such major players, so Roots are even better.
I can only attribute these complaints to a lack of imagination on the parts of players who seem to think the only options are to use the clan's best cards or not to use the clan at all. There's a huge difference between unstoppable and unplayable, and Roots are in between, not swinging suddenly between one and the other.
They are absolutely destroying ELO. Seriously are you going to ban Bristone? Unbelievable!!! 10 more characters are going to be banned by next week. Quit making cards if you are going to ban them. Thanks a lot
Bristone 6/4, -3 damage reducer and is the only damage reducer that Heist has. It is only 500 clintz too. Anyone can afford that...
Now im thinking most people are going to scoff at this suggestion,but i actually dont care,so im gonna cut to the chase.For ELO players,what do you guys think of using Vinny as a splash for GHEIST/Roots week?He can be a mighty 8/3 two star vs cards like noodile,Jeto,Gertjan,etc,and hes only two stars.Again it's just a conceptual splash im thinking of using in ELO so dont take the idea so seriously if you dont like it.Anyway,thoughts?
Just got back from a looooong break and have started playing again, this is the deck I've managed to put together but I can't really remember anything about deck building so was looking for some feedback
