There is a very good preset called bimbo freaks which is pusscat freaks for 25k i have tried it and it never got me below five. also you could have baldovino grudj esmerelda hula yayoi veronica betty and 1* gwen for a lot less (no charlie) i think that either opiton will work because they both have their strong points. for the first it isi bluffing, and for the second it is pill reduction.
Well if you want to manipulate power i would use a banger half deck of blaaster graff locioo and bennie. and then to manipulate pillz which is almost always nessecary in survivor i would use piranas i dont know them that well so i wont suggest a half for that. hope everything works out!
what i currently use, works pretty well, but is a bit over your budget, and more the poison/dr/life gain type
