On avarage, every 2-3 releases brings some super badass op cards for certain clan. It's sad that piranas always get cards what are "decent " or "balanced". I want some new broken card without perma bann ( i mean cards like aamir, rattle, wooly, because they can not only " be decent " in new meta but can be really deadly). We piranas users need something above 7 pwr or 4/5 dmg.
I have ran elo statistics for quite a few recent elo tournaments. There is no indicator that shows piranas being (strong enough to be) popular. In fact I would say Piranas is one of the weaker clans that need help to stay relevant in today's meta.
They lack damage. They lack round winning ability. Pill manipulation doesn't solve Piranas problem because you cant old to win. Power creep makes Piranas weaker. Have you wonder why nightmare is used so much more often? They can play in bi clan decks. They have Pan which is better than Ector. They have a DR. They have round winning ability like Oshitsune and Edwin. They have damage and can hit through most DRs - Phyllis, Glorg, etc. Piranas dont have that luxury. Only pill manipulation but many of them has fallen from good to average/poor. Scubb is played mono. Not too much of a threat with 5 damage considering how damage deprived piranas is. Amiral coco is next to useless if thr trend of the decrease of attack manip clans continues. Piranas need help in many areas. Defeat and drs are now common and essential in elo nowadays. Piranas still need some help.
Piranas are very good in mono..
and can be played in bi..
5* - u have selma dalhia rekved Fischer
4* you have Iron Jaw Raeth (they are really strong) scubb(mono)
2* Parma Hawkins
but wel.. maybe Lack of Soa and drs are the reason why they are less played.
but iam afraid drs will ever happen in that clan..
Staff is particular about some aspects..
they dont want drs in gheist and piranas for some reason xd
no use,,, they wont listen
Even with piranas sob 7 power is laugh at this days. Who needs sob if avarage power attack / power manip clan is 7. When piranas fight with clans like fang pi ( high powers) they have less chance to win. Hit with sob is not so rewarding in current meta.
