The Inferno Tag Festival continues with its share of injuries and euphoria and with new contestants entering the ring every minute. So given that the authorities have got their hands full with this explosive event, it’s the ideal time to pillage and plunder and set up raves here there and everywhere.
Meet Scooty, the level 3, La Junta Cub Scout who’s ready to draw blood to earn his badges. And keep an eye on Rahanpah, the Frozn level 4 giant. But if you’re after more underground activities, head for the raves of D4 Funk, the level 3 Junkz recruit, or alternatively meet Rakhan, the level 5 rascal from the Piranas’ clan.

Piranas have 12 pill ability cards. They also recently got Calliope for a DR, power-hitter Lizbeth, and Amiral Coco, the bonus inverter. And their average 6-7 power is intentional to keep them even with attack clans. Rakhan may not be a great card, but it's not out of spite.
I also think that the card creators don't care much about peoples opinions on the cards as EVERY release is met with "X is too powerful/weak/average". It all just starts blurring together.
Unfair to Piranas? One of the main goals of designing cards for a game like this is balance. Ever card can't be a winner. There are still clans way worse off than the Piranas. They have arguably one of the best bonuses in the game, if every card was a powerhouse, there wouldn't be any parody, and everyone would be running around with the same exact decks. They will eventually get another great card I'm sure, but relax, it isn't worth crying over, like I said, there are other clans way worse off.
Come on, compare for instance Piranas and Junkz. Piranas 4 star cards vs Junkz 4 stars base power. What can Scubb, caliope, even raeth do againt eebiza or gibson, not to mention Qubik. Caliope as DR? you kidding me? with 6 power? do you see any Pirana card in the ELO ban list except Lizbeth? You mention SOB is a grreat bonus..sure. And what about nightmare? they have DR, power manipulation, + life cards, stop all cards..
Scotty: A good, decent card,but we already have better 2* in LJ and this includes common cards. Nothing too special about it.
Rahanpah: The best card from the new 4. Can inflict high damage with bonus activated and reduce power,then this makes fighting much easier against cards with lots of virtual power.
D4 Funk: Not really a great 3*. has good ability but low damage. Not really a problem,except when fighting against SoA. He'd be great if he could be a common card since most great 3* are all rare and uncommon in the Junkz clan.
Rakhan: Quite disappointed,specially because I'm a Piranas fan. He has low damage,and he relies on his ability. Even if the bonus protects him from Gheist and Roots, any random SoA cards as an ability destroys him. Not a bad card,but I'd rather use Selma, Ahkab, Dahlia Cr and Lizbeth over him. He might have a chance to enter Elo since his ability works well against DRs. Btw he's at least an uncommon,so he'll be accessible for most people after his price go down.
Scooty: How the heck can UR still make good 2*s for this clan? As the millionth good 2* for this clan, he may not be immediately productive, but that first turn can yield much attack. Caution: I would not recommend running this guy with Naginata.
Rahanpah: While he can fight without his bonus, it's not highly rcommended to play him without it. He has lots of potential but his strength relies on his synnergy a lot. Still though, he may help Frozn low leveled decks.
D4 Punk: as a level 3 version of Perle, and an attacking version of Nyema and kostner, D4 punk has some nice life gap, one of the weaknesses of the Junkz. They have many good 3*s, but I'm positive this guy will find a spot in decks, especially for colloseums with life gain.
Rakhan: He's not half bad, but he's not my first pick in most decks. There is ector too remember, so that could be a tricky play. However, deadeye and Lizbeth could compose a strong ko team in a 15 life event or Colloseum(if the stars are limited). It's not much but it's something.
This was actually a very well executed release and all these cards will see use.
