People getting further tools to restrict slide, indeed. Don't have the cards to test them yet, but the Regulator home and Protection Racket seem to have a stronger effect against slide and are always available, while I'm not sure Sherman Mortgages would be much more than a speed bump? However, initial assumptions about cards can be flawed, so I look forward to testing all of them!
Also, I don't have hard numbers, but by the tone of commentary and based on some dtdb.co tournament results, it seems like Slide does better in the US than in Europe? Seems like Slide is a big presence in North American tournaments while it isn't over here?
