Sorry for the mild necro, but this seemed like a good thread to gripe for a bit: Sand Sister Saon is such garbage.
I’ve been experimenting with budget decks recently, and have been trying to include each of the Sisters in at least one build. As Legendaries that are relatively easy to obtain, they’re mildly flashy cards, so I thought it would be cool to make something for them. For the most part I’ve found a home for everyone (although I could use a better idea for Keliano, the best I’ve come up with so far is Budget Xor and she’s passable there but not ideal). The one exception is Saon, who feels so bad all the time. She feels much worse than Falcius in the same mana slot, which is crazy when you consider that she was buffed once and he was nerfed once to get there. Even in decks in which I’ve maxed out Falcius and try to fit in a couple of copies of her, she feels so awkward and dies so easily without contributing much.
What would she need to be playable? I have a pretty low bar, so I don’t think it would take much: I’d be happy with just 1 more attack. 1 more health would be even better. If her static ability were a permanent Opening Gambit instead, that might make her actually good. As it is, her stats make me weep to play her.
Does anyone have advice on what to try with Saon? Any decks to share in which she actually does something meaningful? Anything at all would be appreciated.
This idea I quite like for a meme deck. I’m going to try a version that goes even heavier on the RNG tokens with Golden Mantella and Kron.
