I've been trying to get a good offer on my Alec at 3* but no one seems to realize what gold he is in T1, and potentially if unbanned in ELO...
He's a potential
D=8, 10 with fury
I know 3 power is terrible, but the support: attack +3 in a mono rescue is basicly like adding 2 pills to a P=6
If you're smart about reducing pills early game which shouldn't be hard with rescue and can avoid Soa Sob, which you have to do with Alec anyways he's nearly surefire late game win.... OR if you play him in the first two rounds as in if they don't have Soa or Sob... or they're using them on your "more powerful" cards you can force them to pill on a SUPER bluff.... OR if you have the pills to spare and think that your opponent won't think him a threat/particularly in defence when you smell their bluff... why not put a pill or two or heaven help us maybe even Fury.... Can you imagine the look on their face when you hit them for 10 damage wtih a "fluffy filler".... which brings us to the fact that at a TINY 3* you have room in your deck for Marco Kerry and Hax No problem.. Hell.. if you were brazen you could include a leader in the mix.. potentially weakening Alec sure, but all the more reason you could use him as a sleeper bluff.
I know Rescue has some decent low * cards, and playing Alec at 4* seems like not such a bad thing if you're going to play him, but if you're good at mind games why would you not do this?
3 power is just too weak.. What happens when you end up playing against piranas? or even clans like montana that counter the rescue bonus? then you are stuck with a 3* at 3 power. If your opponent has Vickie, Gibson and even Lehane would render him worthless as a bluff unless you want to waste tons of pills and pray that they didn't put any pills on their cards. Even cards like Zatman would be hard to overcome. And it is really hard to replace a Alec everytime he lvls up! talk about maintence.. and all that just for T1? Buying multiple lvl 3 alecs for T1 play.. Why not just use a cheaper 3* card to fill the gap?
