Gold Paladin is the most consistent deck, in a swiss where you go to regionals. Your going to face 60% of the decks are GP. You will end up losing due to bad hands or no triggers.
I will also agree that the game has so much search and draw. Your missions are all dedicated to card advantage and hand mitigation, along with search. Missions are blatantly easy to predict, Water seems to be the only element that uses utility missions.
Next set, CoI will be i pay with a naruto to get 2 BRs. Rarely will i pay with the sasuke unless i can game him with the extra 2-4 BR from hidan.
