It is somewhat amusing, but it is to be expected. I mean, he is basically Toro, with a weaker bonus, but with 1 more power and 1 more power reduction.
I think he would be a strong card even as a 5 star. If he was a 5 star La Junta, I would probably use him over Ray. Just not during weeks where there is too much Roots and GHEIST.
An 11 7 Vs a 9 5 Soa.
2 Damage + 2 power for Soa? Spyke's nearly better but Toro kills cards that try to stop his ability.
When hit by Soa Toro sucks Spyke's Revok who is very playable.
Toro can't get past Pussycats Spyke can.
Eat Roots Toro In my opinion perma banning Spyke will be the best Idea .
I reckon 5 weeks he'll be out then ban. All the rich players will spend their votes keeping him Wesley pwns Spyke.
I don't consider myself rich, i can easily afford spyke, and I spent 3 votes on banning him. I don't use him out of principle (for the same reason i don't use those stupid mono-rescue decks i see every week) I like to try for my wins, not click a few pillz and hope it works out. I don't know why they released such a blatantly OP card. There's really no nice counter. SOA? nawh, still a 7/5 with his bonus. SOB? still a 7/5 thats GOING to beat you. DR? still 3-4 life lost.
Spyke sets a record for being my number 1 ban desire, topping the entire rescue clan.
