I think that one of the best things about Z palace was the lack of gamebreaking DRs.
Between Kit-E Blast and the recent Slade I must admit that DRs are starting to become a bigger problem than any of us want.
Blast in particular needs to go down to EFC tower ASAP. Imagine what bangerz mono will look like now, imagine facing Kurt Blast and Dixie in the same hand!
I could be overreacting but I do feel like damage exchange cards with 2 damage are a bit too much to handle. But maybe I should just accept that it's the new reality and start spamming low damage cards in my deck, who knows.
Also, I agree that Bruno isn't a big deal, he's good but there seems to be quite a few cards that shut him down.
Overall real nice release though!
Should have seen this type of Bangers card coming:
Season 14 EFC - Changes Explanation
"Bangers were the least used clan the past month.
While this was surely influenced by the prominence of Nightmare and Dominion, we think the 2* roster of the clan could use a little help, as it is strongly dependant to Skinny Bob Ld.
This is why we decided to try a swap Doug Snop-Pearl for this month. This will also serve as a test for a New Blood coming soon (Blast)"
A low star overhaul today except for one today
Yohlaw at first looks a little small for a 4 star. His power is low for a 4 star, but for the Dominion that is quite common. If you wait, his bonus will make up for that easily. His choice comes in whether you want to get pillz from him or not. Sacrificing his bonus, you can get 4 pillz back on return, allowing you to overpill a bit with him, especially since he has lower than average power. He is also not too bad on the second or third rounds. Even only getting back 2 pillz can be all you need to win again on the 4th round. He is not as limited to the first or last rounds as his clanmates, so he could see some play, especially as a common.
Bruno brings Power Exchange to the Berzerk. Having only 4 power to begin with, it may be difficult to face another card with equal or lower power, letting his ability always tip the scale in your favor. He can even destroy your opponent's tanks and overrun them if there is no other manips in play. He is a glowing target though for your opponent's SOA. If hit with that, Bruno loses all usability. Other power manips can also close the gap he can make and make him work for a possible win. There is that bit of a risk to playing him, but it would be worth it.
To be continued...
Blast brings Damage Exchange to the Bangers. At a possible 8 power with his bonus, Blast can stand toe to toe with your opponent's big cards and really hit hard back. Imagine a 2 star 8/8. That is terrifying to be against. You do have to match him up to the right card to get the most out of him, which of course, your opponent will be trying to stop at all costs. Another huge target for SOA, making him a standard 2 star with nothing special. As with other Damage Exchange cards, he can also be used as a DR in a way. Just throw him out and make your opponent's tank do only 2 damage. He is a definite addition to any EFC Bangers deck.
Kit-E is a great small defense to use for the Pussycats. He is able to reduce opponent's damage by 4, turning their 5 damage cards and under to a measly 1. His stats are decent for a 2 star, but you will be more focusing on him to defend rather than attack. A definite repalcement for Ella, if you ever just need a shield for a Pussycat deck, he is your choice.

Kit-E and Blast seem very strong due to their clan synergy.
Personally I think Kit-E might be really really good for its clan, at least on paper. Gotta wait for the price to go down to a more reasonable please (under 500k pleaseeee)
Kit-E seems with #Vixen and Lois Ld (+ Ashikaze Ld or Gea?) is normally already a problematic lineup, in Z Palace even more.
High pill, damage/pill reduce, and finish with Lois Ld.
As a Pussycat player I love it. More people will learn to love and use Pussycats (maybe even in Tourney ). I hope the win rate using her doesn't go too high though or else she'll be relegated.
As for Bangers, I already love Bangers ever since they added Kurt Blast and Dixie. Now the add the best damage reducing ability in a 2 star filler, which can be used offensively. Damn glad I bought him when he was still 150k (now 250k lol).
Bruno isn't so bad. Though I'm still amazed that Bruno's price is still higher than Blast (even though Blast's price has increased).
Another usable 2 star with a clan full of great 4 stars (Clive, Kommandon Ld, Spyke Mt, Silvano) is awesome. Allows you to play two 4 stars and two 2 stars for only 12 stars total.
Although I prefer Leopold the attack manipulator with Miloz but in Z Palace Bruno would now be partnering with Miloz
Not complaining though, just excited about these great consecutive 2 star releases (Kit-E, Blast, Slade, Bruno). Am I the only one excited for 2 star releases? lol
Ur is going back to the 2* dr era. Where its really sucks because of the 50/50(greendy) they provide. Its really hard to create a 2 star card that will be meta without being borderline broken(slade) or just dont have competition on its own clan(kit-e).
Pussycats weakness was their 2*, Roxie and Ginger were below average and it made the clan balanced for Z Palace and considering they have many solid 3*, Lois Ld and Slayer. Now with Kit-E you can make a very solid and defensive 11*-12* half, you just gave the clan a 2* -4 dmg min 1
Bruno can stop many powerful cards, it has one of the most broken abilities in the game, facing SoA or big attack modifiers make it a dead card but it's not a problem since it's a 2* and Berzerk have other cards to counter power and attack modifiers like Granny May, Fiddler and Pedro
I don't know about Blast since Bangers have no protection or stop cards in Z Palace but exchange damage in a 2* is pretty good by itself, I saw some people playing mono bangers this season so I guess they were already playable
The Dominion is not worth analyzing
I realize that it doesn't make a practical difference, but it looks like we should also have
Lennox can no longer be played in Danger zone, but they can still be played up to zone Chocomuscle ring.
From now on, MC Decay can only be played in Dark corners.
