This ban list was created together with the players
Striker (+ Striker Rb)
The next ELO ban list will arrive after 4 weeks.
These are the reasons why we did these changes:
All Stars: We wanted to try and restore Marina in order to give the clan a more defensive side in ELO. Striker has been banned in exchange, since the both together would have made the clan too strong.
Freaks: One among Arturo and Ramath had to go, since Freaks were played too much. We decided to pick Arturo.
Jungo: Jungo were played too much, so we decided to add ginnifer to the ban list. However, since this would have left the clan without pure defensive cards low stars, we also swapped pegh and jean.
Montana: This was the most discussed change.
This is a test: we restored spiaghi, while banning 2 strong montana cards for mono-decks, moses and avola.
We want to try and see if montana can become again a good pick for bi-clan decks.
IMPORTANT: If Spiaghi will decrease the number of montana decks in room AND if he will be again used mostly as splashed card, we reserve the right to revert this change back at any time, even before the next ban list release!
Piranas: One among smokey cr, parmabarb, ursula and lizbeth had to go, since we find the clan a bit too strong. We decided to pick Lizbeth.
Rescue: We want to test the return of a very old school card: Elvira.
In exchange we banned Reeve, the most picked 5 of the clan and the 5 with the highest winrate for Rescue.
If this change will greatly increase the number of rescue decks in room, we will check it again next time.
If this change won't change many things for the clan, reeve may return back with no trades next month.
One among Moai and Streex had to go, since Ulu Watu were played too much. We decided to pick Streex.
All the others clan: We thought their playrate and usage was fine and that they can stay as they are for another 4 weeks. Changes to them may be done next time.
We discussed other cards often in the players bans (like mama killa or rattle), but we agreed that for now you players can take care of them with your weekly votes.
Have fun guys!

1387 cards and they are increasing...the no. of bans you have been issuing these past years has been the same. Don't see any problem?
Also "We discussed other cards often in the players bans (like Mama Killa or Rattle), but we agreed that for now you players can take care of them with your weekly votes." Sure let the
I don't understand how Rattle doesn't get a perma-ban, but Toro does? Also why ban Jean now the clan has no good SOA. I feel like the reasoning for alot of these bans/unbans is way off. All-Stars are actually terrible in ELO right now, because everyone is playing SOA to stop Hive, so there was no need to ban one of their good SOAs, and unbanning Marina is nice sure, but it wont fix any of the problems they have. The freaks have a high playrate because of the Poison mission for Wave Ld wtf? I mean the Arturo ban isn't bad but, it didn't need to happen. Letting them have a couple good cards can't hurt, since their best cards are already perma-banned anyway. So you banned Montanas highest damage cards, and their best way to obtain consistency, in exchange for a card that was banned FOR A VERY GOOD REASON, and literally 25% chance to get a 3-1 split and losing a bonus they need to survive. Why was Dahlia Cr not considered for a perma ban? Also Lizbeth ban won't help, the clan has too many strong cards. So you banned their only good 5 left, because its winrate was too high? Or not too high, just higher than the other, what sense does that even make? Ulu Watu I guess I'd agree with. Still this list is stupid, and now all I see is Gheist with Spiaghi.
Generally this is the worst ban list so far. And I liked previous ones. Unbanning 3x damage reducers but banning 2x soa is not a move to make enjoying meta. Haven't really seen piranhas at high elo even when Lizbeth was unbanned, but I guess it's not so important.
