Nah, Uppers dont make a good deck with Skeelz. Trust me, i already tryed it.
So, this week with so many kinichaws around i will try half Roots or GHEIST. I think GHEIST since they have more damage, wich Skeelz kinda lack.
So, the deck i'm planning:
Plunk/Redra/chiara and Kephren (the best comb Skeelz half deck imo) and Ksendra/Hriger/Arkn/Wurmhol
Are you for real?
Xu > Ksendra anyday! Wardom - xu - Mechakolos is just personal preference, Ksendra is definitely not as good. Maybe a bit more solid, but only soa clans will take ability away, and you have Skeelz eh. She's made for extended.
Wurmhol might be do able in certain builds, but zero is the better overal card.
The topic starter said he wanted 2-3 Skeelz cards.... this guarantees you get your better bonus more often.
I was thinking about GHEIST 2 but i had to go, this is what i would make:
XU52 hgriger/Methane Leviatonn stalhfaust Arkn with Plunk chiara Redra (wouldnt go with GHEIST without Leviatonn)
and I did have good results with Uppers/Skeelz, 1400 ish i believe...
Leviatonn is banned, i would put him too otherwise.
And yeah, i'm for real, cards like Ksendra are great, not for the stats, but for the "psychological" aspect of the card: if opp. put too many pill he will get DR and overpill, if not he will get 7 damage in the face. This type of cards are very underrated. Try it , you will know what i'm talking about. I wont change it for a potential +1 damage on xu.
In a mono GHEIST i can agree with you however, like i said in the first post. But far away from xu being better than Ksendra anyday!
Im still using Wurmhol is working for me, i will stick with it for now. If i feel it is lacking, i replace it by zero.
