Rescue and Leader you get at level 15. It's not gonna win the DT, but you'll get the credit with ease.
Any suggestions for specific characters from those clans?
Wesley, Joana, Krash, Slyde, Larry, Gordon, Nancy/Daussone once his price drops
Simon, Ivy, Aniki, Filomena, Ace, Moses, Milovan/Oscar.
And Hugo as the 8th card.
9k rescue : Cliff Gordon Suzie Wesley Slyde Krash Larry Lea
9k bangers/ulu watu :
Bubbles Chlora Loocio B Ball
Eddie Felica Nanook Taigo
Replace Nanook with Douglas / George / Lin Bee for a cheaper price
I have a decent pretty cheap deck, here's the preset:
Cheap Pussycats-Ulu Deck
Tip: These changes can make this deck more cheaper, but still pretty good:
Muze -> Jayzel (save 2,400+ clintz)
Nanook -> Felicia (save around 1,000 clintz)
Also, Jeyn can be changed to Veronica, for less than 300 clintz more, if you prefer pillz manip more than damage.
