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!

Well 7-1 decks i can tell you of a whole clan that uses this type of decks and its called Leaders. Not that leader cards arent banned almost everywhere. The problem is not with the cards but the efect of the impactfull 2* cards that are very few. And in that matter of speaking why not bring double 5 star decks again and make more good 2* cards. every clan has that 1 good 2 star card that is banned all the time weather it be spiaghi or lehane etc. People woudnt have to splash them if there were more impactfull 2* cards and bring the 55542222 decks. nightmare are duying for a 1/6 2* with powere = power, overal more 2* with the beck nena potential beck nena is a almost perfect stats for a 5* card. And one more example pegh he has same stats but not that abused and may be a clan with protection power and dmg could make those cards less usable since most clans stugle with dmg reduction. I personaly am not that much bothered by splashed cards any kind of clan combination makes the game more interesting.
Spiaghi should not have come off the ban list. The card is extremely splashable and causes nothing but problems in the meta because of its low base damage reduction to one for a two star card. Other than that, I like the direction these bans have gone in. Thanks for giving us Elvira back!
The way I think of it is that Spiaghi's usefulness in this game has dropped tremendously with the addition of both Cancel Opp Damage Modification and the Hive clan (9 times out of 10 Spiaghi is going to be 0 pilled meaning every Hive clan member right now can get over him (except for Oon if and only if Spiaghi is played first in the round) so the hive clan having a lower minimum than Montana really helps keep Spiaghi in check as you may 0 or 1 pill with Hive and have about the same number of Pillz while still getting damage in). Also you have to think about Gheist and Roots being familiar to many players ELO decks. To me there are many cards that combat Spiaghi now that I don't have a problem with him being unbanned.
And something I put in here that is incorrect is that if you are gonna splash with Spiaghi he won't have his bonus meaning the comment about the min of Hive being below the min of Montana is irrelevant and further helps the case of the unban of Spiaghi
Wish gheist got tweeked a bit ine the banned listing. they I haven such a hard time in elo with more then 60% of the 4* that are all staples being banned a lot.
take xu-52 give me rolph back.
anyway I don't see one bad thing about this banned an unbanned list.
