When Flinch joined the Clint City police, he dreamt of adventures. So feeling disappointed, he decided to join the Sentinel. Unfortunately he was so good at typing up reports that he was bundled off to deal with the clan's paperwork. Until, that is, he got so wound up that he smashed up the clan HQ, making Copper realize it might be time he sent him off for some real action.

The members of Sentinel have one burning goal: to bring law and order back to the streets of Clint City! And if they have to set fire to the town and bathe it in blood to do so… then that’s exactly what they’ll do.

    So lemme get this straight...first everyone jokes and complains about the Sentinels always beating the Gheist in the comics, but Chloe, Copper, Havok, and other heavy weights never hold water against Gheist in regular play. Then UR addresses the problem by pumping in a lot of Stop abilities into the Sentinels so that they can combat Gheist. And what do all the players do? Complain some more? What do you want UR players? Another Hawk? Another Lehane? Please...get over it and see Flinch for what he is, another great Gheist stopper.

    Flinch:
    6/5
    Ability: Stop: -4 Opp. Power, Min. 3
    Bonus: Attack +8

    Pros:
    -Attack manipulation is always handy dandy!
    -5 damage is very good for a 3*, so not complaining there.
    -Against SoA, he becomes a beast. Combine that reduction with the Sentinel bonus, and we've got ourselves a winner!
    -Even without his ability, he is somewhat formidable, even though 6 power is on the low side...

    Cons:
    -6 power is pretty low, and he'll have problems against other power manipulation cards, regardless of his bonus.
    -DR is an obvious problem.
    -Since he's a stop card, it's going to be hard to pull off that ability.
    -SoB rids him of his only support, without his ability intact. Uh oh...
    -Competition in the 3* department, especially in mono. Martha, John, Melvin, and Dayton are the main 3*. Though Flinch is more solid that Dayton, in my opinion.

    Overall rating: 8.5/10
    I originally gave him an 8/10, but after using him in ELO, I must say, Flinch is pretty incredible, considering he's a stop card. Sure, he only has 6 power, but I think that +8 attack and 5 damage makes up for it. And against SoA... well, let's just say he's a force to be reckoned with.

    Flinch: the hero of the office

    Pros: great damage for a 3 star.where else can you find 5 damage for a 3 star? Edwin, flinch, that's just about all the usable 3 stars with 5 damage.

    Good power. 6 used to be great, but now it's pretty average for any card, 3 stars especially.

    Great synergy. When the ability is active, even against the few cards he breaks even with, what's that? +8 attack, which will put him a cool 3 pillz ahead.

    He can beat jackie cr. jackie. Cr.

    Cons:
    : his ability is stop. True story: when I first saw him I thought his ability wasn't stop

    He could also be a nod to Milton from the movie, Office Space. Which also had a nerdy pencil-pusher who hated his job and was taken for granted until he snapped and set the building on fire.

    Sorry guys, accidentally hit write. Advice: don't write reviews from an iPad. If you' re gonna rate my comment, rate both, lol.
    Okay, time to continue:

    When I first saw him, I thought his ability wasnt stop and he was a 4 star. Debated in my head weather he or spyke was better... Until I realized he was a 3 star and had stop. Fail!

    That all leads me to say: his ability is stop.

    That's it! I love flinch! I use him in my deck I'll post on the board! He's great. He's great, great, great.
    Rating?
    19/20. Rating in 20 gives me a little more room for judgement. He's great. Running sentinel? Use him. Over Melvin? Yes. Melvin's extremely overrated and flinch is extremely underrated. This is all personal preference, but seriously, strapped for cash? Use him. Not strapped? Still use him. Thanks guys, please rate!

    I'm not sure but I think Flinch is Atticus Finch from "to kill a mocking bird" I might be wrong but:
    Flinch sounds like Finch
    He looks like Atticus
    Atticus is a lawyer and this guy really looks like a lawyer in level 1

    flinch
    3*
    6/5 stop: -4 opp power min 3

    pros:
    +nice damage (WOOO WE ARE GETTING SOMEWHERE SENTINEL!)
    +if stopped this ccard will OBLITERATE the opposition, unless the card happens to be toro or rolph, in which case its pretty even... but then the sent bonus kicks in and turns the tables so HAH beat that.
    +soa is common in elo, no doubt... so this card is pretty perfect.
    +not sure if its a pro but it gets my approval for sentinel ;P they needed damage they got damage, now they need a nice mix of power and damage :S
    +ability-bonus synergy is immense, in the occasions its active *cough*
    cons:
    6 power wont get you far in high pill fight, but then again you wont need to use much as i think this card will be vastly underestimated.
    - yet ANOTHER stop: for sentinel, i think they have enough now, please stop

    overall:
    7-8/10, ive yet to use him im perfect situations but he is good enough for me and sentinel any day, he is a great elo asset for sentinel and for me comes 2nd only to melvin (or 3rd if mono coz martha rocks)

    this is _wise_ back to the paper work
