When Zoltan told Cassandra he was preparing a massive stage comeback thanks to the matriochkas he’d collected during his annual trip to Poldachie-Golgovine, she imagined he was planning to juggle with the dolls. What she did not expect to see turn up on stage was flesh and bone…and much more besides…emerging from the dolls’ mouths…jumping…singing…slithering… Suffice to say it’s going to be a massive hit in the big top so long as the audience is well equipped with sick bags!

Having been around in Clint City since anyone can remember, the Freaks Circus offers unbelievable daytime shows for you and your kids, including fire breathers, knife throwers, big cats and magicians! But when night falls, the show turns into something quite different which, let’s just say, is not recommended for the weak at heart… Come see the Freaks; you're in for a big surprise!!!

    Matriochka - A tribute to the nostalgic yet slightly creepy Matryoshka dolls.
    And a good card to boot!

    Pros:
    -8 Power, almost necessary for freaks to win.
    -4 damage, solid for freaks 3*. (making her still useful in SOB situations)
    -Protection vs attack manipulation is gonna be candy, cancels out 3 clan bonuses off the bat and lets you rampage with 8 power.
    -Laughs in the face of SOA.

    Cons:
    - Akendram
    - Bikini Joe Ld
    - Is a Freaks.

    A nice Elo card. It shouldnt get banned yet will provide a cornerstone for many decks. Not mindblowing but signifying an arrival of a new form of solidity in UR.
    Balance?! I like!

    Freaks decks should be able to have multiples of this card in our deck without penalty.

    It only makes sense, right? =P

    Matriochka is a memorable homage to the Russian wooden матрёшка (matryoshka) dolls. They are made of wood, and are made up of several smaller dolls inside one another, and that's why it looks like the Level 2 art is supposed to be the level 1 art, the level 1 art being the 3rd level art and the 3rd level art being the 2nd level art . The largest матрёшка is made up of 72 dolls.
    I had around 4-5 матрёшка dolls as a kid, they were so cute and fun to play withsmiley
    Overall this card is PERFECT for ELO - Low Star count, Protection:Attack and 8/4(Can be used as a wall and as an attacking card)
    I rate it 8.5/10smiley

    Matriochka is a solid 8 with 4 damage with a protection: attack.

    Solid 8 is pretty good and the card is good against Uppers, Montana, and Sakrohm.
    Not unique though as Shazam does the same thing as well as neutralizes all power/attack/Riots/SOB Bonuses for one less star and power and 2 less damage (can be 4 damage/4 initial gap against life altering clans).

    Matriochka is able to stop certain - opp attack abilities which in terms of elo isn't bountiful and the SOA of Bogdan is pretty much the Shazam of abilites able to stop pretty much any threatening ability.

    Niche card mightl see the light of elo because 3 stars + 8 power if Bikini Joe Ld hasn't filled the spot.

    Freaks become worse when anything with atk manipulation is printed. It's great to see a card that will let freak half decks become more viable.
