Hello to you all, I have tried to build a Vortex deck since it seemed to be fitting my budget and not to bad from what i read. I have built something that I think you can call a deck, but I am not so sure.

This is the deck so far
Cyb Lhia 2*
Ward hg 2*
Bublegmm 2*
Neloe 2*
Deea 3*
Kronnen 4*
C Beast 5*
Oflgn 5*

total = 25*
My problems so far, put aside my lack of experience, are Kronnen being not to good I find myself using him almost always as a bluff when revenge is activated and that due to a low budget i had to settle for cards like Ward hg and Bublegmm.

I would love to hear suggestions for improvements, even sell some of those cards and make a nice half deck. my budget as it is right now stands on 8200ctz and I can sell cards if need be.

Having 4 2 star in a Elo deck is a really bad idea. If you are in budget, mix the Vortex with some other clans, Vortex, IMO, is better in half, Cyb Lhia, Deea, Ward hg and T Gaank will be a cheap half Vortex. Other clans those are not very expensive and can work well with Vortex are Roots, Ulu Watu. If you have few more clintz, Junkz and Frozn will be a good choice as well.

I prefer using Vortex as a half deck. Thai is correct in the 4 cards he loses being ur best options a well. The other half deck is pair it w would b an atk manip clan (Sakrohm, Uppers, Montana) since I can slightly over-pill w Vortex ull either get 2/3 back w a loss or get ur guy thru ull need the other clan to help eat up ur opps pillz. Murray, Uranus, juatya, aleistar r just a coke examples of the type of cards id use

Like said above, i think that Vortex really shines in half decks.

Vortex is a great clan, they are strong against almost everything in this game: pot manipulators, atk. manipulators, poison (specially Freaks), and many others.

But they are specially vulnerable to SoA and SoB. So, you should half deck them with a clan that isn't so vulnerable to that imo.

Try out Vortex/Watu if your low on clintz.

Cyb Lhia Neloe Deea Oflgn.
Dave Noland Eugene Eddie. It's good for this week's meta, but you'll have trouble against SoA.

Well thank you very much for the help. I don't think about buying credits for now, but what is the optimal half deck with Vortex regardless of it's price?

Dagg T Gaank C Wing Cyb Lhia or the same with Dagg - X-0DUS. That's a pretty beast half.

Should'nt i counsider what Vortex im gonna use according to the other clan ill choose? and maybe its a stupid question, but should i not play 5* cards in a half deck?

You should, but the halfs HoAzeem brought up are pretty much the best options regardless of what you're pairing them up with.

And that depends solely on what 5* you're thinking of. C Beast? Never. Dregn? If there's a good anti-soa going on, he's worth a shot. Naele? Sure, if the other side fits in with her.

It depends on the 5* of the other clans. Clans like Montana or All Stars have worse 5* than Vortex. So in that case you can use Dregn, C Beast, Naele or Shakaarti.
You can also use no 5*. So that means 3x 4* 3x 3* and 2x 2* but that depends on the other half of your deck too.
