Man, there is so much to say about this, but so little time. If you are going to ban Gascaro, you will have to bring in someone like El Divino, since that would pretty much gut the clan if not.
I get why you would ban Zhu Thang, because he goes well with Huracan, and El Divino + Zhu would be overbearing.
I suggest to NOT bring back El Divnino, and NOT ban Gascaro. Just ban El Matador or Derby Queen. That would weaken the clan without breaking them.
If you want to ban something fang pi, I think we all know what needs to go...
Kusuri! thats right! well, either her or that famous CR 5 star...
Unban Olga? Several of the new clans work very well against them anyways, they need a buff.
WAIT. arent we forgetting a ban from a certain clan that was just released? Doesn't their bonus seem a bit too good to have a ceratain 3* card with 9 power and reprisal copy bonus Come on, lets ban that LD at least.
Along with banning Jean (which i had said from his release), and lucy. Wats happening had it right when he said top heavy decks rule too much in these certain clans.
Just ban sabia,not isatis since she can be countered. If you want to add one more to the pool go with Brianna, La junta's got all too many cards to choose from. Brianna gives a taste of Grudj believe me she is worth the ban as much as he is.
Mono bangers has to be weakened as well, so zoe needs to be banned for obvious reasons. I believe that both zhu tang and jautya deserve to be permanently elo banned and you got them in the list for a reason...right? It's not just some random thoughts I hope... For once, go ahead and include them in the permanent ban list and since you went into the deal of banning those two cards you might as well ban D4Funk, mono junkz is definitely strong. There is no reason to be hesitant about lucy's ban as it is very well justified.
Good thought on huracan, without el gascaro and with tekkuman they seem fairly stable thought I am pretty sure tekkuman is going to cause problems. You might want to add more bans to the skeelz if you are to keep Xingshu. Redra ban ought to do it plus another attack manipulator from the clan,that is support based.
Berzerk also ought to get a ban lola or clive,your pick
Espectro, don't you tell me tekumman is a good card, huracan will be a dead clan if you're gonna ban el gascaro
and bring back lear barduh, playing with lear barduh requires more skill than jautya
if people want FPC to be less powerful, ban Kerozinn Cr, banning zhu tang won't make ANY difference.
Hi, I'm writing this on account of a friend who is currently out of comission for being a moron.
He says Plizken is is a much stronger card than Isatis. He also says that La Junta is in his experience so strong that you can play 3 Stop cards in it without either and still go pretty high. He also says that the La Junta 2* deck structure is too damned good because there's about 5 2* which are all very playable, 2 playable SoA's, 2-3 Stops which are playable on non-stop weeks, and several killer 4 stars with even the new common Keitha being fine. He says it looks to him that you could ban as many Junta as there are banned Roots and they would still be playable, and that "they're basically the only clan he never pays any attention to temporary bans with". He sounds serious, but not excited, like it's a fact of life, no hype.
He sayes the Bubba ban also won't do much because the power of Jungo is in the 2* and 3*, and that cards that don't even get played in Jungo are actually really good because the 2* are so good. He says Pegh is "a Spiaghi which furies for 5 or goes through DR" and that he thinks of Jungo weeks as "Jean weeks".
He says that Clover isn't a defensive card but the easiest 5-7 damage to sneak in he's ever had. Clover Noel he says is pure cancer. Serra M1 is too new, but he doesn't understand why Diana isn't banned.
He also says he's sick of T-Gank and Cyb Lhia in every Vortex deck ever, and that they never get temp bans so they're always there.
