I feel these clans are currently lacking -
Rescue (I know i will probably be called noob, ESPECIALLY with campell banned))
Gheist * Feel free to disagree with me on this one, I do think rolph is insanely strong, but he is banned alot.)
Shifou and Mary are two of the best SOBs in the game.
Futoshi Ld can be treated like SOB as well.
How unusable are they?
I think FPC has all the things Junta lacks. And Junta has all the things FPC lacks as well.
For example, Junta has decent SOAs and FPC has good SOBs.
Junta has good support cards and FPC has high-powered solid cards.
FPC can make a decent half even without Kero
Kusurai Marlysa CR Bengal and Shifou.
Only problem is this low star half is usually overshadowed by PC low* half, and on occasion, Jungo Lowstar half.
Montana bonus really isn't as good as it used to be, in my experience. It is too difficult to make effective, especially with the newer cards lately. IMO it is a tad bit unfair to give them such weak abilities and base stats, while giving clans like uppers such strong ones (if we compare both clans to the +8 attack clans).
Hurrcan needs Gascaro or Kinichaw back. Hurracan really shouldn't be highly penalized, since they are one of the few clans that promote split decks (I don't have anything against mono, but I feel that most clans now adays are almost always better off going mono, which is very boring to build a deck with).
Freaks ^ same things as above, they need olga back. Grudj at the very least.
I think FPC gets a bad wrap because your average player can't afford Kero or Marlysa. I know I don't have either of them and I've been playing for quite a while. Without them FPC is kinda like Montana... there's no blatantly obvious reason for them not to be very good... but somehow they aren't very good. They aren't bad but they aren't good either.
@AGPrinz Yeah I like what you said there about Hurucan and Freaks. I just got to 1407 today with a Hurucan/PC deck thanks to my recent acquisition of Magistrado... but other than that !!!!conditional Ld!!!! they don't have any form of DR. I think Gascaro should come back. For Freaks I think they are a dangerous clan to tinker with. With all the DR they have, and just barely enough round winners (shazam is awesome. hindelga is awesome. liona/esmerelda/bertha/olga noel are all scary enough with their bonus intact.) If you give them Olga or Grudj I just think they're going to explode and go right from 'meh' to OP. They have so much DR! I'd rather see a brand new card come out for them. Maybe a nice 3* with 9 base power and "protect power and damage" ability.
Wow im surprised you managed to get that far with a huracan deck! Although if you were using Kero, that doesn't surprise me so much, as she can carry pretty hard . I actually said the same thing about el gascaro, as soon as he was banned. I commented somewhere that removing him would "gut the clan". Pretty much was right, since they don't see play much. I used to play Huracan with El Magistrado, El Matador, El Gascaro, and Derby Queen. I never really found any other combo worth using really.
Freaks have wolfgang woland and quistatsio and hindelga for dr. We all know hindelga's DR is pretty conditional and not very strong. Wolfgang's DR is pretty costly for a 4*, since it too is very conditional (when will -4 min 2 be better than -3 min 2, such as on pegh). Woland and Quistatsio are decent, I will give you that. But I really can't stand playing freaks right now, they just seem so lame.
I think Olga is OP. I mean there's always Olga Noel anyway-- who is very good. As far as Grudj goes... I just said on a different thread that if they brought Grudj back but banned Baldovino I think that would be a very smart move.
Yeah Huracan is kinda gutted. I still think they make good halves just because of their bonus. Unless you're against SoA Derbyqueen and Miss Derbyqueen offer just about the biggest bang for your buck out of any 2*. Not bad for a clan which also has the strongest starting bonus for ELO. When combined with PC or Jungo (lots of people do the Huracan/Jungo thing. prepare to see it now that Ongh is unbanned this week,) they are really strong.
