This deck is awesome and Avola is a must have in the mono-deck, true.
Infinitely preferable to Vickie Cr because of the new DT rules.
In the good old days, Vickie-Lyse was the staple gambit.
I also prefer Ficcanaso to Sharon because sometimes slamming a 2 star fica into a 4-5 star can increase the total points by 3-4 than when slammed with Sharon.
Entirely one's choice, I should say
And Desmond is the real clincher.
It's just amazing how many games can be won with a little patience (*coughs* I wouldn't say anyone should old, because this is clan Montana. 2 pills work beautifully in most cases since people expect just 1) and Desmond!
