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!

Disagree with swapping jean&Pegh,
Also would've liked to see the ban of parmabarb more than lizbeth as she has great power but also a great weakness as opposed to parmabarb which is encouraging "5050 plays" and if your opponent has SoA doesnt suffer as much as he isnt really a win condition.
I agree with the rest though. Over all good changes
When the community has shrunk so much over the years you simply don't have the luxury of making statements like this one "but we agreed that for now you players can take care of them with your weekly votes." If you know that certain cards are not good for elo i.e "Freaks: One among Arturo and Ramath had to go, since Freaks were played too much. We decided to pick Arturo." why choose between the two? Just ban both. It's as if you don't believe in the creations that are set to be released in the future with this logic...the creations you make...
The game has such a great variety of cards, you can't be stingy with bans because some cards are still in some packs...Put the interests of the game above yours for once.
Anybody could tell me why Blaaster Cr hasn't been seeing the light of day in almost 4 weeks. With this going on you might as well ban him, but why haven't you. Own up guys, are you responsible for this?
Though that aside, the changes were alright overall
Guys, just to talk (currently idea is not scheduled), I would know what you think of this idea.
What do you think if we insert a rule "all clans must be balanced". In that way you could use only a Mono or a balanced biclan 4-4.
