What is your opinion on Zatman? he has been banned, unbanned and banned again. He is a debatable card as he is very solid but by how much?
Tyd/Noodile = Zatman without 4 attack
Chiara = Zatman with situational, yet much stronger ability
Not to mention he now has to compete with Harold who although has situational ability he basically is equal to Zatman once ability is inplace and adds more effect as he reduces power and attack. He also isn't very far from Gaia,Akendram and Rico (although their bonus doesn't help as much)
I still think he is very powerful and would get banned probably every second week but I still feel he isn't that much of a threat as he used to be. What do you think?
You can't just look at one card, you have to look at the whole clan. Will Uppers rule dominate ELO if Zatman was unbanned? Not a chance because there clan isn't strong enough in ELO, why aren't they strong? Because there cards rely on the bonus/ability to be strong and with Ghiest/Piranas/Nightmare/Roots all being very popular clans it's not like Zatman will change there whole clan.
They need Zatman to give them that extra support there lacking at the moment, a lot of cards you listed Studda aren't exactly OP cards by themself, but cards like Gil uranus Sigma and Shann are all amazing cards with there clan.
Kerry is a good example of what I'm talking about with Zatman, Kerry isn't OP but with her clan it's making rescue pretty annoying, same with Sigma and Uranus,
Zatman on the other hand is the other way round, he is powerful but doesn't make much of a difference to how good Uppers will be in ELO. Cards like Sigma and Uranus change the game, Bridget would be ridiculous with 14 life and the poison cards about and Lou was banned because of how well she fitted in with HER CLAN.
Basically the reason them cards are banned and Zatman among a few other cards need unbanning is because of how well they work with there clans in elo, not the fact that the card by itself is OP.
Unbanning zatman is a terrible idea. he's blatantly overpowered, anyone who doesn't see it obviously doesn't have imagination, and besides there are many solid 3* in uppers (Oxen, Rubie, Harold).
if he would be unbanned almost everyone (everyone who can afford him) would play an uppers half.
Ratanah is another ridiculous idea...
I hear you, but the uppers clan isnt lacking support. Uppers will be a strong clan in ELO as long as Dorian remains unbanned. Add Zatman to the mix and yes, you will have a very, very OP clan, mono or half. dorian + zatman in one hand and any SOA/SOB will be looking fast at that forfeit button.
