Started this a long time ago, so let's do it again.
Ward hg: Seriously one of the most underrated; natural first choice for most people goes to C Wing, but this can replace Cyb Lhia in many cases (where there is already a lot of damage, and Ward hg would fit the theme).
Liam: People just remember Redra and Sasha, but Liam is probably just as good as those two, provided that Skeelz severely lack an SoA. People just build decks without him, but try to make a 3 2* deck with him if possible.
Ojibway: Somehow people just forgot about him, there was a time when he was banned every week... Still don't understand why. He is not as solid as lou, but has 2 increased damage used early, for a 10 damage that is almost irreducible.
Proffer Man without his bonus has the same problem that any 7 powered stop card has an that is, well, mediocre power. Most SoA he'd face would be beating him easily. Even with bonus, most ability SoA staples kill him. This is part of the reason why Iguana Samson and Fuzzy June are actually legit cards - it's not just baseline or good stats it's 8 or 8+ power in particular.
One thing he might actually be rather good for is for splasing into a Tourney 2-hit KO deck. Riots come to mind, him, Berghart, Pr Heartnell and Farman ought to be Rather fine once the clan shapes up, but there's probably other clans that'd like him. Roots would love themselves a 6 DMG 3*, and so would GHEIST for that matter, or rather, a non-shaky one. Someone will discover him as a tourney card one day, those are some damned fine stats.
Proffer Man with SOB lets him fight even and beat a lot of clans with cards made of 7 power or less and are reliant on their bonus like Rescue and All Stars and especially cause of his only being 3s.
Without SOB, he is just 7/6 with no beneficial ability that lets him win the round, forcing you to overpill constantly to win letting your opponent to take advantage especially if they "old".
Ex - if Proffer man came up against a generic "staple" like Striker (assume either DT, or not temp banned ELO weeks)
In mono, you would be like awesome, no backlash and 7 power > 6 power.
In splash, assuming you can't get your bonus, you end up 5 power no backlash vs 6 power.
If you want an anti SOA 3* splash, just splash Karen (7/7 vs SOA with some d/r immunity compared to Proffer Man 7/6) or Flinch (6/5 -4 Opp Power, Min 3 vs SOA) or Marzo (7/4 -2 Opp Pow and Dam vs SOA)
Even better, splash a 2* for that job: Ashiko or Bernie
