To patrol the long and winding corridors of the sewers leading to the GHEIST'S HQ, Vryer created Arkn - giant spiders with metal legs, controlled by a rat's brain. Fast, silent, clever and cruel, they wipe out anything that crosses their path. All in all, they're perfect for the job.

    Guys, SHUT UP ABOUT THE BANS!!!!!!
    You think I was mad when Isatis was perma-banned, or every time Jautya is banned? Heck yeah. And guess what, you got Arkn and Z3r0 D34d back from the bans. Isatis is going to be banned for a looooonnngggg time, and Jautya's on the voting list every week. But, instead of sitting there and complaining, I'm going to get Brianna and Petra, or maybe just play T1 until the ban is lifted. Seriously, ELO is one of multiple game modes on this site. It's not the end of the world.

    I prefer Arkn alot more than Zero. Against Gheists/Roots, Zero can only be good defensively(by winning) but winning will only take 1 life from your opponent(not a good place to invest alot of pillz). Arkn, though, can be used against 3-6 powered roots/gheists that aren't very rare in the world of urban rivals and will pay out well if he wins. Also he's a great card when used straightforwardly in a pill battle unlike Zero who has the same, but weakened, offensive functions as many other cards in your deck.

    That aside, I think gheists dont have very decent 2*s I hope they come up with one soon.
    Vote green if you agree smileysmileysmileysmiley

    Perma banning ANY 2 star is pretty much deleting from the game, apart from the fact of being usable in T1.. But really who plays T1? The staff have just banned a DECENT staple for gheist and pretty much made him usuable.

    WOW, WTF?! He's PERMA-BANNED? Nvm, I think it's quite obvious that the staff just don't understand the terms "format" or "balance." WHERE THE HELL IS THE LEHANE BAN IF ARKN IS OP? Every character released since lehane has been an inferior Sakrohm character. I really hate this game right now. Bye UR.

    2 big missed chances in gheist (I think) smiley

    1: Jaxx ld smiley a 6/6, that i'm fine with but the ability ruins it. ability: -6 opp atk min
    missed chance cause the power and the min are the same smiley smiley smiley

    the same goes for Arkn smiley but if i had the choice i'd use arkn any day (in a low pill battle Arkn Is WAY better, and jaxx is an ld smiley)

    if any1 says that 4 damage is to much for a 2 star i have 1 unbanned card to point out tula
    7 power but taking away power is better she will have a 3vs 2 battle alot
    the weakness of taking away power is atk manip but she has sob so not much atk manip hits her
    shes in piranaz a vary vary over playe clan
    4 damage supposedly thts over powerd for a 2*
    arkn isnt overpowerd at all i agreed with the toro ban but arkn? some wouuld say he is not the best 2 in gheist let alone elo
    i like arkn i rly do but no one can explain y he is banned gheist lost their elo dominance i think they shuld be givving banns some were els speaking of wich the same update tht they banned arkn they unbaned uranus a card tht evryone agreed or atleast most people agreed deserved the ban

    People really hate SOA as a bonus, most of the banned cards from ELO are from clan that can do this (why making them, then?). I joined UR in 2009 and this was one of the clans that came on my starter pack (the other being Montana), I started collecting them because I thought they were really powerful and they really are, but the cards that make this clan shine can't be used on ELO (I remember a time when they only banned Rolph and the rest was available, man, I kicked ass), apparently I can only go Survival now (and be crushed by Uppers and Ulu Watu) or make shitty deck and try to compete in ELO (and be crushed by who, Montanas, yea they don't have anything banned except for their CRs). I guess if I went Montana I would be having a much easier time than I do trying to struggle with my remaining GHEIST.
