Glad they banned Isatis such a monster of a card but the Dr Norton ban was just pathetic He's only there to stop the Support + X Power cards and the + X Power cards from doing any harm and his damage isnt exactly scary either idk why they decided to ban him. And that Striker unban was pretty pointless tbf its like no one has ever heard of Alexei in this game
Striker doesn't really deserve to be banned in the first place.
Stat wise he's not that strong and it's really only 1 more damage than Alexei.
I guess all it does is merely open some more ko options for Allstars, but in comparison Saki is a monster.
Guess that's UR power creep for you. 1-2 years ago, Striker would be considered OP.
Dr Norton deserved to be banned. Reeves + Dr Norton = gg.
While, you might think 2 damage is very little, but when you manage to beat someone's nuke and deal them 2 damage for only 3 pills against their 5-6, that's basically the end of their game.
