After reading a thread with almost the same title as this i was inspired to create a rainbow ELO deck that i will use only.
here is my prefered deck. It is untested and i have played no rounds of ELO yet this week.
i have also created these 2 variations.
Please feel free to rate and comment and offer advice.
i am going to use ELO Rainbow 1 this week and gonna continually tweak each week in an attempt to great a super rainbow deck

Actually thinking about swapping Elvis n Jean (both SOA) for Rodney n either Rudy, Kostner, or Kawamshi Cr. Not sure who fits better or if I really have to keep 1 SOA.
Just lost 4 of 6, 2 to mono-rescue, 2 to freaks/cats. Beat sakrohm n Montana soundly. Jean really isn't a great fit might try mindy
While a fun idea, I am beginning to believe that the Rainbow theory is just not viable for elo. My deck gets completely handled by Gheist, Roots, Rescue, Huracan n Freaks. Half Pussycat decks also pose problems. Ill run the week w it just for more research but so far not so good
Forgot to mention: at least half if the decks I've lost to were terrible.
Ex: Klawz, Mini Mund, Elke, Randal
The not having any bonus/synergy is really hurting this idea.
Rainbow deck should work ok vs Piranas / Nightmare but as i already mentioned, both clans lacks key-cards this weak, so pretty much noone runs mono piranas or half-nightmare.
Just bad timing for such an experiment.
With all due respect to the 'research', I don't think anyone really expected rainbow to be 'viable'.
I feel the goal is seeing how far you can go with a rainbow deck, not really testing it's viability. Even against less stars or a worse player, it's already an uphill battle.
It also depends on the skill of the player.
I reckon it may 80% depend on the player really... Anyone can build a nice deck, a deck with restrictions is hard.
To be honest thelis week feels much tougher than last week. Its really difficult to strike a balance this week.
I have decided to drop this for this week i cant get in anywhere using anythin i have tried every deck i have made over the last 2 weeks.
o think this week ill just try to pull up my rating from under 950 to get up the at least 1300 using regular decks. Then next week either another rainbow or a 4clan deck ( as i think i could work a lovely one there )
