This deck has a base power of 49 but it also has power manipulation and stop opponent bonus.
Good against those pesky montana's. Also has pillz abilities which allow the use of extra pillz or maybe not (bluff and pretend you are going to use them or don't bluff and use the card to get the damage in.
The lowest damage possible is a whopping 35 of course with out damage reducers coming into play but it has stop opponent ability and a stop bonus which annoys dr abilities and pussy cats.
All in all, when you think about it, many players that achieve over 1300 in ELO every week use a balanced deck, and since so many gheist and roots cards are banned players are looking for an alternative.
Roots were used frequently because of their balance, how many times did you meet three 3* roots and a 5* roots card or even the 2* arno. The reason players used these cards is becuase no matter what random cards the computer chooses for them to battle with they will always stand a good chance of winning.
Thats why I think this deck has an appeal to players and It is working for me.
