Last week, Serena, Saho, Lothar and Spudd were released. My prediction on the following will be:
-Serena will be a staple replacement for the Tanman because of her 8/6 stats. Her price might skyrocket if her last weeks in the NB are coming. She might also get a nice banning in ELO if Ulu Watu users abuse her.
-Saho will be in a cheap Skeelz card because of his rarity. A lot of NB buyers will be annoyed just because he/she keeps on finding his/her way inside the packs.
-Lothar might be a good Pam replacement if his stats and abilities were tweaked. He'll be as annoying as Saho if you are a NB buyer.
-Spudd is a good replacement for Marina since he has the Kang-like abilities. But the 4 damage of his is kinda underrated if people keep on thinking about KO wins. He might get hit by a ban hammer in ELO.
This is my prediction for the week's release. I might do this again next week.
Im not seeing where lothar comes in as being the star of the release,because he'll just end up sitting next to frida,wesley,and larry in value.But like spudd and saho hes gonnga show upquite often....
ic an see saho probably wont get used now much,but in the future he'll probably be used a little more.
Spudd s ia great card but hes common,so hes going to show up a bit too much for certain people's taste.
Serena is probably the best release this week,and looking at the vortex's continual departure out of NewBlood this card will pick up demand at a steady 2-3k value near her rounds and might be the wardom/selma of this set of cards.
Saho is a big meh..
not many will use it, even if you use it, he/she will not win many times, often people will underestimate he/she (because if they use low pillz, you need many pillz to win, at the end, even if you win, they still have the pillz advantage)
I can see lothar in some budget deck he is like mickey t, use it at a right time, and boom, 5 damage, or you can throw him 0 pillz to waste 2-3 pillz of your opp
but he has many flaw, soa, sob, +/- attack and + power (especially ulu watu) will pretty much beat him to dust
he has many competitor though, some people might love solid power card, there are krash, some love solid damage, there are larry, or rescue super star lea and steve will take the spot
spudd is an ok card,
nice little wall (I mean little is his damage) and a replacement for marina if someone really need a level 4 card (except they know kang is 1 power and 2 attack less, but give 1 less star too)
I can see this card win when he only use 1-2 pillz everytime (it's like gibson) people will just let this card win, since it's only 4 damage or they will reduce it
serena is the star of this release for me
actually she has nothing to brag about, it is an ok card, but better than the rest 10/6 with protection bonus is a nice replacement of hikiyousan
she cannot replace stanly in ELO though..
I might use this card in T2 especially with many nightmare in T2
