    masked bandit

    why does masked bandit have so high stats for a 2 resource ally? every deck use it it is op and strict better than most other 2 resource allys. the ability is not even a drawback. maybe if it was shuffled at the start of each players turn then you could at least damage it on your turn and have it removed the next turn. but now even if you damage it the enemy can use it for attack one more time. not good.

    makes sense to me. a lot of the campaign allies feel really weak to me too but i guess thats a separate topic.

    It's op. I have said this 4 months ago yet nothing has been done.

    OP cards are obvious at first glance to top players. DT here, however, don't like to change them immediately because "they need to be used to make informed decision". Also some loud people love OP cards and hate nerf.

    This is why few incredibly smart players are gone, who could have made this game appear in top competitive e-sports game scene.

    This is the first I've heard of it. I'd be interested to hear what others think now that you've raised the subject!

    Feasterling is popular and masked bandit is the only turn two drop that can survive it and be able to hit it back in your turn. I find his ability a drawback, coz i sometimes want to keep an injured ally on board to increase presure to opponent or for example to be healed with the help of pack beast etc.

    Yari bladedancer is a really good ally who should have seen more play by warriors, but it cant survive a turn two opponents feasterling. Even many 3cc allies cant. Eg potl

    Masked bandit is because of that reason popular, borderline op but not. Even 1 point of damage can send him back to your deck and you are left without your precious turn two drop.

    It is pretty strong. I do like the suggestion by mindy to shuffle it in at the start of the controller's turn rather than at the end, would make it a bit fairer.

    That way it would be another dust collecting card. A boost from a krygon would make him go back to your deck without helping you at all

    not to mention that it wouldn't survive feaster anymore = useless

    But wait, we could nerf feaster too. Then the next best thing. Then we can finally play with brutalis. Until it becomes too OP at least.

    Masked Bandit should be shuffled back at the start of your turn to be balanced.

    Why do you believe it is unbalanced? To me bandit is a very strong ally, but not unballanced. Read if you want my arguments above.

    Ps. Most turn 2 allies can survive bandit. They cant kill it but they can survive it. This is true for most turn two allies.
