How about bringing back Karrion? It's typically been abandoned by the whole community since being banned. Think about it, 7/5 and 5* especially when we're talking about unbanning Askai here who can do 9 damage in one turn. Of course, there are lots of other candidates to ban/unban which l think 0_AAR hit the nail with.
I honestly think Moses should be unbanned. He was banned simply to keep people from playing mono montana and that's just wrong. It's also the wrong reason for banning buba.
Mono Jungo? It's next to non existent in elo atm. Banning buba is like kicking a dead dog at this point.
Compare Buba to a similar card, Numar.
Numar has 10 power with bonus and 8 without and can gap for 6. Against SoA or SoB, he's still a formidable wall.
Buba has 10 power, but only in a mono setting and is a 4* liability at 6 power against SoA. He can gap for 7 with his bonus.
Numar can be played in halves. Numar comes from a clan with more than enough 4*. Buba has neither of these things. Jungo has a few good 4* because Jungo was released during the end of the old days in which making laughably bad cards was still a strong tradition and Jungo is far younger than all but a few clans.
Keeping rob cr and banning saki is a mistake those cards kill the diversity of the allstars, this clan has shitloads of strong 3 stars that stay unused and underpriced lets see:
karen - 9/4 in soa weeks 9/7
lewis - 9/3
kang - 8/4 -6 atk manipulation
amelia - 9/5 if afraid of soa play with karen and 2 hit ko from 3 star cards
mulligan - 9/6( you can compare him to pan in nightmare)
bhudd - 6/6 not very op but still a 2 hit ko with lance lets say
nathan - 7/4 -3 dmg wall and a minimum of 1
those are stats that 5 most 5 star cards don't have and you want to give them saki potential 11/4 and rob cr that is 10/4
rob cr is expensive for new players and every old player has him so he will flood elo
