This card will kill this card.. etc. etc.
not really the way to see the threat of the card is it?
lamar is able to win a bit easier than the other unbanned 8 dmg cards.... that is what makes him banned. yes xu52 and lou are better one 1 or no pill plays (bit will u really run either over rolph or shakra?)
8 dmg cards with the ability to win rounds AND maintain a pill advantage are SCARY. Alec is scarier i agree... Copper is scary but SOA weakens him severely... after 3 pillz his +8 is out of the question compared to lamar getting hit by SOA.
8 dmg is the crux. i will play DT with All Stars but not Ulu Watus... why? because 8 dmg lamar will give me a 2 hit ko threat every time i draw him.... he will combo with many cards that are DT staples. Mr. Buckethead has 7 dmg.... this limit the number of possible 2 hit KOs. Im not saying lamar is better than tanny... just pointing out why the stronger 8 dmg cards are banned
I am actually going to side AGAINST this. For a couple of reasons. Lamar Cr is too strong a 8/8 SOB in ELO is overwhelming. It has high stats for a high cost of 5* but look at it this way. Kang, Striker, Marina, Robb, Randy, etc. They can all 2HKO with Lamar Cr. You may think it is a good thing, but then when Lamar Cr starts spawning all over ELO, you will see clans falling into Destruction. Some cards are banned because they will either cause an unbalance(Jackie, Lamar Cr, Vickie Cr) or are just too powerful to fit in a deck.
No matter what side you are on (For the record I'm on neither, I wouldn't use lamar, and I think I can take him) this is redundant, If lamar cr was unbanned, it would only be for a week anyway, he would just get vote banned every week like what the sentinels have been.
