First of all Lea is an excellent 2 star. 6 2 SOB +12 attack. By giving rescue an extra good 2 star we are going to see more luck based hands with a 2-2-2-2-5-5-4-3 composition.
As joseph underlined montana are one of the worse clans in elo. When mona is banned you never see montana and when she is unbanned she is rarely used. Of course you wouldn't know that since you can't get above 1200+ to see the serious meta
The fact that you think it's impossible to win against Roots with a glosh in your hand is really worrying. It's easy to beat Roots with Rescue because you have the solid attack manipulation vs them.
Now troll i'm not even going to argue with you because as I said before you can't reach 1200 elo. the meta from 1000-1200 is random. It's once you get above 1200 and into 1300+ that you start seeing what the meta is truly like. And it isn't an apocalyptic scene where everyone is using montana as you think.
What worries me even more is that you are contributing to this. It's really worrying because on my first account I reached 1200 elo in my first elo week and after 4 months you haven't reached 1150. What do you know about the 1200+ meta? Next time leave the people who can actually reach 1200+ discuss the ban because as I said above 1000-1200 is random deck meta.
Next time staff please put an elo restriction on the discussion -.- the fact that you can listen to the advice of a 1150- elo record guy but can't listen to a 1500+ guy is really worrying.
Who said everyone was using Montana? nonono, just no. Lea's a good 2*, but look at Norton. I'm not even going to start when you trying to slander me ugggh im not going to get blacklisted. Who said I didn't think Glosh was good? Rescue's 4* department is lacking somewhat sure. Maybe i don't try in elo because people like you are all like *snort* imma get to 1500 today with my weelee/numar/i don't even care. people also think your opinion is terrible because you think rescue is autowin all of a sudden especially with you know nightmare when oshitsune is unbanned, piranas when parma is not banned im not going to write an 1000 letter post im too lazy
Campbell is not the only good 4*. Kerry is very good and glosh is great during SOA weeks. Right now rescue is the most dominant and common clan in elo when campbell is legal. This should be enough to perma-ban him or another rescue card.
I personally think rescue would still be playable without Campbell. But if I am wrong, what is the big deal? Lots of clans go through periods of time where they aren't popular in elo. Why should rescue be any different?
From now on i'm going to refer elo record because it seems to me like most players that want campbell to not get banned have a record of 1200- and have no elo experience
KurO ReapeR Mr 1080 elo. Check the whole elo discussion because some players have made lists about good rescue
-kunta Mr 1160 elo. Kerry is also a good 4 star. And they have average 4 stars like suzie and glosh. Glosh is great because roots are played every week and most decks have an SOA card in them
You can then compose a 2-2-3-3-3-4-4-5 deck or if you want to avoid 4 stars then go with 2-2-2-3-3-3-5-5. It's simple really

With all due respect, your ELO records are both below 1200. If you've never even seen the 1300+ meta, how can you know what Rescue does and doesn't need for ELO? Kuro, Rescue isn't weak: someone broke 1550 with them last week. Elite, Rescue have Kerry, Scott Ld and Glosh at 4 stars. Those aren't the greatest options, but they surely make up for it in the 2 and 5 star department. Banning cards like Campbell and Dr Norton will simply stop Rescue from being OP. Case in point: how often do you hear complaints about or even see Rescue when wonder boy Campbell is banned?
