I understand that some or may I say most cards have the annoying clan bonus that makes their cards special(namely Montana, Roots/ghiest, Uppers, Jungo. So I made a deck made up of an SOB clan. I don't know If I should go for a mono Nightmare deck seeing as Nightmare's amazing cards are expensive(since my deck is composed of power/attack/damage manipulation) I thought of buying some of Pirana's pow/dam/att reducers namely Tula and etc. But I don't know, Most of the things I hear from other players are Kolos' incredible 1 hit KO and never what the other cards do.
As of now my deck Is as listed:
(The extra clan)
(The extra Leader)
all in all that's 25 stars.(building a T1 deck in case you needed hearing.)
If you plan on running SoB clans then defintely run Nightmare/Piranas.
Defintely take out your leaders, sell them if you wish.
In most Piranas decks, you should have Hawkins, Smokey, maybe Tula, and I see Tyd alot. That's 11* right there.
So then you have your nightmares. The essentials are pretty expesive but you should keep your setup for now. I know the Piranas are very expensive as well. Your going after 2 expensive clans.
TBH you've picked two of the worst clans to start with, for 2 reasons:
Firstly, Piranas are a difficult clan to play with - even level 40+ players can struggle getting the best out of them.
Secondly, most of Nightmare's quality cards are expensive for a noob to buy. And even if you could afford them, they are falling behind IMO, with lower than average power and a lack of new abilities like Confidence, Revenge, Stop etc.
The best recommendation you will get is this:
Sell all the cards you do not need/want and buy Montana. They have effective yet cheap cards. Then add Hugo in there, and play in DTs to start with, so you pick up your 50c tournament bonus, plus the clintz for the battles and maybe a credit if you do quite well.
You should find a deck like this: Hugo, Spiaghi, Prince Jr, Filomena, Oscar, Murphy, Veccio and Rosa to be very effective and relatively easy to win with, with an 18 attack bonus
I see that the base damage of Nightmare sucks and most of the useful cards are too pricey, But what makes me committed to build a mono is because of the bonus. I mean Rescue really is a bad beginner deck but with sob the +12 attack goes fwoosh(considering Junkz and Sentinel), montana's -12 goes away and so does sakhrom's and uppers' , And goes away Jungo's life. But looking at it at a logical point of view, Montana is WAY cheaper than most decks and It DOES have the cards to make a decent elo deck. Then Again I'll have my chances XD
At this point you can do one of two things:
1) You, a level 17 player, can decide that you know better than the experienced and in some cases quality players here that have tried to help you after YOU posted for help on this message board.
2) Or you can take our advice (mine and UM's) and play Montana which will negate all the bonuses of the attack clans you are worrying about and give you a 12 attack advantage against clans that don't have an attack bonus! Your choice but you would be foolish to choose mono Nightmare or Piranas at this level.
Oh and btw, Kerry, Gibson and Petra are 3 of the most popularly used and yet least banned cards around! Check the election!
