Having struggled coming up a new deck for this week's ELO. I finally find a solution that bring me back to top100 - Sol Hona! It is perfect in so many ways and I have never fought against anyone who also use it this week.
- 8 damage, can't ask for better
- Ability isn't situational
- Isn't too vulnerable to SOA
- Best of all, it is the ideal card against Ongh. Ongh needs 2 extra pills to beat Sol Hona, this 500 clintz will be the best investment you ever made!
I think you can argue that while card for card, Havok is better, Sol Hona has solid support from inside his clan. The Aliens are actually really good in ELO right now while Sentinel seems to perpetually struggle.
Sentinel were only good with the Hawk/Lehane combo. After the perma-ban, they seem to be a low tier clan.
Nowadays, the only really solid cards you can count on are Lehane and Melvin, the rest are sub-par for a competitive ELO deck (even Tobbie, because he suffers a lot against SoA, like the rest of the clan)
