The 8 consecutive wins were after I switched decks to that one. A small sample pool, but still... Even the low-star draws felt great. I managed 3-round wins when I didn't have Freaks
bonus without too much trouble. Of course, I think some of this deck's success can simply be attributed to the fact that if you don't play the common 1st-turn poison nuke strategy, it's very hard to read...
I completely agree that Skeelz
were stronger than usual this week. Skeelz
plays defense well, so they hold up tolerably both against Sak, and their advantage against GHEIST
is obvious. I think this deck would be utter trash in a week where Lizbeth
was unbanned, but hey, you have to use the right tools for every job.
I get some kicks out of trying to make the neglected clans work. I made a few t100s with FPC/Ulu back when nobody took Ulu seriously in ELO
, and I did fairly well (though no T100) with Skeelz
mono a few months back, before they got Pluck. I think Pluck is an excellent addition, and they're much stronger with him. He has excellent synergy with long-neglected cards like Jay
, and is able to set them up for that decisive, game-winning hit. So there are definitely some new strategies that can be explored with this clan.
