Ban list for week 6/13 to 6/20:
Caelus, Morphun, Shakra, Striker, Ghumbo, Sylth, Sledg.
Copper didn't even get to 5% of the votes this week, which was easily predictable considering the Shakra factor last week. Copper will likely see a lot more play this week, which may lead to his ban the following week.
Sledg, which was barely above 5%, gets banned yet again. I sometimes wonder if those voting to save him would be better off not voting at all.
Those above 5% but remaining are Marina, Oshitsune, Toro, and Hugo.
This means Nightmare will be back this week, and All Star will pick up quite a bit over last week. Hugo-tana is going to see some play, especially during the DT hours.
With Shakra gone, mono roots is less likely, so you'll more likely see your half root decks again.
Gheist may see some pickup this week, Toro and the new dog included. Stop ability cards will decrease this week. (Shakra factor gone)
Most of the other week averages will continue into this week. Ie. the amount of other clans I haven't mentioned will see little change.
Doh. Duplicated Thread. A lot of what I thought is in line with your thoughts. I expect a lot more GHEIST this week as it trumps the Copper Sentinel halfs we'll surely see, and without a big Roots presence Draheera is a lot more useful.
I personally am leaning towards Piranas and Ulu Watu this week. Could perform well against the Sentinel, All Star, and GHEIST half and mono decks I expect to see.
It's also of interest to note that a new clan coming in could royally throw a wrench in the next couple weeks of elo.
By clicking the portal you will see the release date is June 18th. That's a Friday. If you don't want to see the new clan affecting your elo this week, get your matches in before Friday... Cause a new clan could have a dramatic affect.
