Hi guys, this is my 2nd subject about Skeelz..
Well, are they really getting left behind? Maybe it's just me though, I never go past 1300 ELO using Skeelz, the best ELO rrcord that I made was 1352, and the clan that I used is Roots. But Roots wasn't fun for me to play, that's why I decided changing clans, and i got myself into using Skeelz. Skeelz was the clan I enjoyed the most because of their unique abilities. But when I already played ELO using Skeelz, i'm having a hard time on most power manip clans (not most of the time though and not with Frozn), Montana (Avola, who has high dmg, Spiaghi, who helps Avola along the way, Moses, who goes, and Uppers,
I think the problem is that Skeelz are meant to play in Mono due to their abilities (Sandro, Dr Falkenstein, Sasha, etc.) However, because they are best played in Mono, they lose out on a lot of combat-wise bonuses. Halfing Skeelz with an attack manipulation clan will be great, but that means you can't utilise above cards. Skeelz also have low damage in general, and cards that make good damage gaps (Snowflake, Greem) are easily run over by power/attack manipulation. In other words, their nukes have average power while their walls can't hurt.
But Skeelz can work though. They're just more difficult to play.
I don't play mono-Skeelz because I cannot control them, but I do splash the occasional Chiara Cr and Redra rarely. With the release of the recent Plunk there are more splashing options to choose from.
I've never played with Skeelz but I think it could have to do with the fact that other clans are getting cards with cool abilities and the clans that once weak are getting strong new cards added to them .
I'm a mono pussycat card user for elo but this week i'm using Ulu Watu , I was also thinking of doing a mono Skeelz deck but i need a lot more cards .
