Support is just being thrown around like a regular ability now.
Support is now in more than just Rescue.
Support is in La Junta, and Sentinel now.
It's an ability, just like courage.
John, is a decent card, 6/4 by himself, and a 9/4 with 3 other Sentinels.
Same with Rick, 6/2 by himself, and up to 6/5 with 3 other rescue cards.
it becomes a question, of using the Support cards who rely on abilities to get their damage, and power up, or going with the tried and true cards who don't need the abilities. like Carlos, 7/3 no ability, over John 5/4 support Power +1.
I'd like to see a Support Power +2 card myself. but i guess that'd be a +8 power in a mono deck.
making a Nasty 9 power card if the ability goes through. maybe a 2 star, 1/4 at level 2, Support Power +2. someone who truly relies on his friends
but anyway, that was kinda a tangent.
no, Sentinel isn't being turned into Rescue...
but they are being turned into a mono playable deck.
La junta, Pussycats, Sentinel, Junkz... we're seeing a lot more Mono played decks out there.
and i bet Uppers will be the last to fall into this Category.
Uppers actually is already mono playable since quite a while...
Jackie 4* or Beetenka 4*
Frankie Hi 3*
Gina Glitt 2* or Colin 2*
This is a very viable mono Uppers deck which is a really good daily tournament deck as well. Not a single weak card in here. All of the cards are more than just usable in ELO. The reason clans are not getting played as a mono deck (besides Rescue because of their bonus obviously) is that usually it is stronger to have a secondary clan with more powerful cards or cards with other abilities. Like Uppers/Pussycats for damage reduction or Uppers/Nightmare for shutdown, just to name a few examples.
And even though Sentinel has now cards with support, they don't turn into a second Rescue anytime soon I think.
Sentinel have been a mono available deck for awhile since they have multiple lvl2 options in aurelia, rebecca, and carlos allowing a stack in higher level cards. Their only problem was that they did not have many strong lvl4 cards, but miranda helps them alot. Sentinel is a great clan for Type 1 EVO players in daily tourneys as they can play a lvl 2 carlos and if they are willing to spend a bit more a lvl 4 Miss Chloe or Chloe or both.
Adding Support to the clans will increase the number of possible deck options for a more competetive metagame... Only time will tell if this will lead to another mistake like Marco or a more flexible fair gameplay between the Urban Rivals clans. GG's!
