El Gascaro's a pretty good card.
+14 Life Bonus at the start.
Defeat +3 Life which is useful at the start say a 4 damager hits you, 13 life left is still good enough for the Huracan.
6 Damage and 6 Power are pretty solid stats, He's sort of borderline OP with them base stats, they may have got away with a 6 7 but not a 7 6.
Am I going to go for high pillz like 5 or low pillz like 2 with him? Put 2 Pillz on your opponent still needs 4 pillz on most of the time, then he'll probably get 1-2 damage resulting in a 2-4 depending on your opponent pillage.
SoA destroys his double bluff ability but he's still a mean card with that Bonus.
He's a pretty solid card that can take SoA and Sob pretty well and he really does help Huracan in the first 2 rounds.
Similar cards are cards like Maurice, Fizzle, Slyde and Melvin which are all pretty good.
I doubt he's worth perma-banning, but he's always going to be one of the better cards for Huracan.
