Minerva over Dwan. I get that you want a defensive half-deck, but Minerva can defend and go on the offence so she has that mindgame factor. Or use Chiara to fit in Bogdan over Quasi and Olga Noel/Akendram over Bertha. This is completely preference, but I do strongly suggest Minerva over Dwan.
If you are looking to take ELO seriously, I strongly suggest you do NOT use Skeelz OR Freaks (for this week at least). Never use Skeelz outside of a mono, and only use Freaks when they have their main hitter free- Bogdan.
Just my two cents. If you really want to take ELO seriously, I would strongly suggest starting off with attack manip clans.
Some people might find your opinion a bit controversial, but for the average player it's fair enough. I'd still encourage the original poster to experiment and work it out what works through experience.
But Josh........Splata is expensive and Bodgan is like 5% of his price, 1 less damage and one less star and you don't use both.......why not get the extra star and use it towards Olga Noel over Bertha? They're practically identical only 9 power from Olga Noel. Or use Boris over Bertha. Or even Karmov for the gap. Olga Noel is the best choice though.
I switched Dwan to Minerva, and I am debating about switching Baldiveno to Madelone (Since I cannot afford Bogdan or Akendram) and switching either Birtha to Olga Noel, or Rhedra with Andy Ld (but having 2 or 3 defeat cards that deal with pillz makes me nervous).
