Hi, I'm new(actually I came back after two years) and I'm trying to get a cheap-ish standard25 elo deck with fpc. I'm going for something of a 7-5 damage combo mostly. I'm thinking of going with Montana mostly but I wanted to get your opinion. My budget for a half deck would be around 15k. I was also thinking of going Mono but I thought that might be more expensive or maybe not as good as half.
I noticed that the hp in elo is now 14... Why would they do that??? I dont know what point there is in doing this other than to screw over damage dealing clans.
ELO became 14 Life maybe because of Defeat: Return Pill High Damaging Cards.. Such as Dregn and Tsubame.
It's also to make 2HKO a harder and 1HKOs virtually impossible (exceptions include Dacote, Defeat: -DAM + 8 Dam Card)
Well that's dumb. >> It will probably keep changing if they keep making broken cards. They should just analyze if a card would make the game broken or just nerf them. That would have been easier and more effective than changing the game itself.
Well, I think another part of the reason was to give the freaks at least 1 game mode where they can excel at The 14 life change was actually the result of a elo experiment last year where they had 15-life weeks, no-SOA weeks, no-DR weeks and a lot of other wacky stuff.
ELO was allways ment to be more tacktical then normal game modes so they changed the life points to make Ko harder so you aim for a longer game then quick KOs.
