Not everyone has deep pockets and want to get into ELO. This deck is under 20k(need two LDs) but really good. If you don't have the LDs you can easily swap them(will raise the cost a little more).


enjoy all new players and experienced players

Current: http://www.urban-rivals.com/presets/?id_preset=2772958&list

The only LJ's I don't have are: Python, Gertrud, Amiral Py Cr, Emeth Cr, Flavio Cr and General Cr. Not that it matters, since all except Gertrud are not viable for Elo. I'm dedicated to playing mono-Junta, so please, pardon me for preempting any suggestions for half-decks with the statement: I won't do it. At least, for now.

Many thanks for looking into my case, but how should I go about my deck? My current deck is just me swapping Milena for Jane Ramba Cr. I peaked my Elo using my current deck (1211 - but I only started Elo recently, had a long hiatus since 2011), so I'm an Elo newbie. I don't think I have a feel yet for the current meta, and that's why I'm asking: what are your recommendations? If you've got questions, and you want my justifications for them, leave a comment!

P.S. Now that my beloved Isatis is currently unbanned, I would very much like to have a spot for her in the deck. My guild's suggesting Sabia. Thoughts?

Thank you!

Bye Hriger .
I no longer have a need for you thank to B16 Sestra .
Is her competition good? Sure. Is Hriger good?
Well, I never liked using him in the first place. His damage isn't a huge bonus , most GHEIST can dispense damage like no tomorrow, and -1 Pills isn't a huge payoff.
What's my issue with running GHEIST nowadays? When I open using them, my decks will have Arkn , Z3r0 Dead in 2* slot , ocassionally Mok . For 3's it's Klawz or Leviatonn .
Klawz or Leviatonn usually removes the need for Dr Ergo though I still prefer his allstop to Hriger ; it's less of a risky play.
But , I don't want to bait with Methane when opening GHEIST Turn 1 or Rolph for that matter. Mok is out of the question and I'd rather not use my Leviatonn either. Who can I use ? My only viable option is usually Klawz , Arkn or Z3r0 Dead and I prefer Arkn 's damage or low pill Klawz but either way , my lack of options is a bit annoying.

However , I honestly think B16 Sestra fills the opening turn gap as an 8/6 Courage SOA both has the power and SOA to push through it's damage, and it isn't as risky using Leviatonn / Klawz (they can easily pitch a garbage card against them ) , lets me save Rolph / Methane for threatening KO in later Rounds .
What am I getting at? A solid line-up : Rolph 5* , Methane 4* , B16 Sestra 4* , Arkn 2*(15*'s ) looks like an amazing elo half as does : Leviatonn 3* , B16 Sestra 4* , Methane 4* , Klawz 3* (14*'s ) OR Rolph 5* , B16 Sestra 4*'s , Z3ro Dead 2* , Mok 2* (13 *'s )

Since y'all wanna test me, I will try seriously at ELO. Serious Serious. I have a lot of Kitties, Roots, Frozn, some Uppers, some Vortex, and a marginal amount of Riots. Help with a deck, preferably kitties/filler?

What's the ideal mono Skeelz deck for ELO, without Caelus since he's so frequently banned?

Is this a trend in ELO, to just play mono-Nightmare, or there isn't anything else worth playing? rofl

So my current record is 1160.. I get to 1100 every week.. The problem is I REALLY wan't reach 1200, but it feels so hard to me when I pass 1100.. Like I win one, then I lose one, and so it goes.. What should I do.. I like to use halfs with Jungo/FPC/Frozn/Pussycats/Freaks + Uppers/Junkz/All Stars/Nightmare.. What clans combination should I try?
This weekend I used Jungo + FPC: Ongh ; James ; Jean ; Bridge ; Kusuri ; Fei ; Shifou ; Zhu Tang.. Is it worthy to go with this combination next week? What changes should I do?

To ban some allstars? At least ban Saki...

Also Nabrissa is completely overpowered as well. To be honest the card is better than Diana by a lot. Unless you are going mono pussy, you wont pill very hard if u get SOA with Diana. With Nabrissa, you need to deal both her ability and her bonus, and her low star count. She is truly one of the best 2*s in the game right now and needs to be perma banned.

Who here agrees?

I've been pondering this one while working on Freaks Decks.
But what I've noticed is quite interesting.

In the 2* Department :

Esmerelda is simply not good enough anymore, that attack manip alone doesn't cut it .
Shazam seems to make the cut, even getting player banned often enough.
Bertha is subpar, I have to say it, 7 / 2 with +1 / +1 is meh in my book.
Magda might be an option, able to take on Power Manipulators and is still equivalent to 8 Power essentially.

The other 2*'s? Well . . not much going on for them.

In the 3* Department :

Olga is banned, which is a terrible shame, but a necessary evil. Good card, but banned.

Akendram is not only overpriced, but the only reason to consider him nowadays is because Olga , Bogdan and Grudj are banned in the 3 spot ; and to boot, Olga Noel performs better after 2 Pills!

Olga Noel is ok, but she's just that to be honest, ok, not special or great.

Quasichoco almost never sees use, but seems to be the only other useable 3 Star Freaks, though his -2 DR is off putting as I'd much rather have a card who can win the round if my R1 Poison / Heal doesn't go through.

In the 4* Department :

Bogdan is banned after a long deserved ban, but before him :

Grudj was banned! And Grudj is just as bad / annoying as Bogdan.

Liona is a solid card, but doesn't strike me as a staple. Also, I feel -12 would have been better than -10 , since Freaks have lost their SOA , Power Manip , and SOA .

Madelone is another option, but is not a round win.

Just in case people were unaware Marina and Saki were unbanned in elo so remember to appropriately counter them with your decks hopefully they will be banned next week
