Only a matter of time before people realize how much of a game-changer Ellie can possibly be. Took them long enough to figure out Zhu Tang....but agreed with Flora. I dislike defeat cards but still managed to fit her into my ELO deck. She deserves the ban.
I haven't checked the list, but they better not have banned Flora in place of someone who's actually worth of a ban.
I'm not saying she's definitely the next Zhu Tang. That was a very underrated card that was just more recently noticed as an OP/gamechanger type card. Not saying Ellie is going to be the next OP card, by no means is she OP, but she can change the game. And for a 3* that's a lot.
She (obviously) closely resembles Anita who has the same thing going for her, but Ellie's SOA allows her to go thru more often than Anita.
Not saying she's OP or anything like that. She's a good card (underrated IMO), but ultimately, how many more Roots can they ban before your options dwindle down to the same 4 cards as everyone else (Curlix - when not banned, Rico, Tuck? Treeman? Lilly? The options Roots have right now is atrocious). When Tuck is worth almost 19k you know something is wrong.
