As an experienced daily tournament player I can't tell you the amount of messages in game and private messages I've had asking my deck and how to play daily tournaments and how many people I've played against who could have won the tournament or at least placed a lot higher with a minor change to his deck or play style.
What I've come up with to help the community out is an idea which I think will help greatly newer players and maybe even vets who are 1 ingredient away from making that Jamie Oliver cake. I believe if I can win a tournament you can so the plan is..
You will give me your favorite clan(s) and a budget if you have one and I will make you a deck, not only will I make you the deck I will then play in the next tournament I can with it to see what kind of numbers I can get with it. This will give you a rough idea of how well the deck can place and maybe you can even beat my score!
So post away! If you are a vet don't be ashamed to ask! If you know anyone who would need help like this direct them to this thread

Huracan I'd recommend to anyone playing standard just due to having such a strong half deck. Noctezuma, Derby Queen, El Gascaro and El Divino is such a beast half deck. Uppers half decks in standard are basically identical to each other Lady/Kazayan/Maurice/2*/3* of your choice.
I will take your challenge to make a half deck with Berzerk without Spyke, super hard but I'll give it a shot so you'll need Graven because he is actually what a Tank would be if made into a Urban-Rivals card. Elvis/Taylor your choice to be fair, different purposes for each card so choose what fits your play style. Lola, super safe card, can't go wrong. Roger is needed in standard for Huracan/Uppers.
That's what I'd use for Berzerk anyway, I'm no god with Berzerk and haven't used them since Spyke ban so I could have missed a card which has potential but I feel the Uppers half would carry more than it's own weight in a split between Berzerk/Uppers.
Thanks So as an experienced Tourney player than myself would you recommend higher * decks over lower *s?
Depends on clan and play style for star count. I see better tourney players use 28 stars but I prefer 31 which I consider max (unless 32 makes a huge difference to the deck) For example Montana would probably be played 27-28 stars which would fit there 3 round win style with 2hko threat still being there. But La Junta only need 2 rounds so why waste card slots with 2-3 star cards? Use the best cards from La Junta and hit hard would be my choice.
The actual logic behind Lady is her 8 damage supports the common 3 star 4 damage which many clans have (Sents/Junkz/Roots/Montana) So she actually helps more clans 2hko. She also is a DR so people play passive vs her because no one wants to pill vs her.
That's my logic for choosing Lady as my main pokemon but I can see why you'd pick all them guys Lu Bu... Jkily
