If you haven't noticed, I've been trying to take NU C&C through a quality revamp (although being sick and several other complications in my life have slowed it a bit). Previously, our QC team wasn't quite that great, and a lot of subpar analyses or downright bad analyses have slipped through the cracks, and we're trying to remedy that. Monferno
is one such analysis. It's not badly written, but...
The major issue is that, while Monferno somewhat has a niche (Endeavor + SR + priority?), it's a very mediocre one at best. I have never actually seen this set being used competitively (I actually don't think it was even tested by the analysis writer, let alone the QC team, which is pretty shameful), and I highly doubt anyone actually deliberately goes "hmm I want to use a suicide Endeavor lead" when making an NU team. I brought this up to a few others on IRC and they asked that I post something for the rest of QC (and anyone else who wants to pipe in) to talk about. So here's the question: Do we leave Monferno up for the sake of having a niche, despite being a mediocre set that no one but gimmicky / bad players will use, or do we get rid of it? Discuss.
There are a few similar analyses, so there may be more threads like this / this one might be amended to depending on how well this thread goes.
There are a few mons that I'll post about later when everyone's had a chance to talk about Monferno.
