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!

I planned to make clan per clan analysis but it'll stay a plan for a moment but let me highlight some cards that were untouched that is very used at the moment
Clive- with the introcduction of miloz and graven being free and elo. It's been very easy so set your opponents life to 2-4 without doing much pilling, it's either 3 vs 6 dmg vs him and he activates miloz ability which is strong so with minimal problems.
Cyb Lhia - I love vortex, but she needs to go. sarah is here already plus vortex is mostly used 5-4-2-2 or 4-4-2-2 which in a half deck only and is uncreative at all. At least with the allowing semi evo rule you can use naele crystalys and have a good half already that is not usual nexus rahi sledon -> dagg/x-0dus/t gaank c wing cyb lhia half. Also banning her will introduce the usage of c porkks angora and the never used fhatgn ld which is good now!
Mama killa - PLEASE BAN IT ALREADY HOLY SMOKES
Parmabarb - I prefer parmabarb banned over lizbeth honestly. lizbeth was dealable, of course she'll be OP if you don't build your deck around her. but she is a fragile card! parmabarb makes cheaps 4 damages or you lose 2 pills only to be outpilled next round by hawkins dr alma and smokey cr next round
Raven - If you think there are no subs if she gets banned, then you're not a la junta player! casual 10 damage is absurd in elo. Although she is support based, that's still a kolos effect card. It ask you to prepare SOA or take damage.
There was no problem with 5-3's and 6-2's. In fact it's a great way of constructing decks. If you are considering that rule,better we ban spiaghi again instead. Banning splashes is like nerfing chiara cr which is not doing anything harmful
