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!

6/2, 5/3 decks are kinda fun and i don't think anyone have problems with them.
Rule: you need to have at least 2 cards of each clan would solve splash card problem without disallowing some other types of decks. I know there is no such a rule at moment, but maybe it is worth to implement.
@HipHoppa. We're not scared of people using 2 skeelz, we're scared of Spiaghi (or pegh for that matter) of being splashed everywhere without a penalty. If they banned 7/1 decks, they would have to splash in spiaghi and a random montana card. Otherwise, we're letting an awesome Dr fall into the clans that abuse it the most (such as roots. Well, roots are heavily banned atm, but you get the idea).
@HD_BossKilla7. Depends on what you're splashing. The first time I reached 1400 elo, it was with a 6/2 deck
And honestly, we want it to be more risky because splashing only spiaghi is too safe and extremely solid in many decks.
But making it only 4-4 or 8-0 might get a little bland...that's why I say banning 7/1 is probably the best solution so cards like Spiaghi (or xingshu when she used to be unbanned) won't be too big of a problem.
@It would be much more complicated develop your idea
Dont be lazy, you have the algorithm already: in public preset you can see chance of deck having certain bonus in game. If deck has Spiaghi or other "splash-banned" card and that card's bonus has 0% chance to occur then deck's banned. Just use the stuff you already have. How incredibly hard can this "much more complicated develop" be?
