With the bans i believe making solid ELO decks has become cheaper than before. In this post i will go with reviews of most of the clans and their cheaper ELO playable cards. I`ll focus on half decks since they are more versatile and should be able to adjust to the weekly bans quite easily. For the sake of argument lets define cheaper as approximately 4000 clintz or less for a half deck. Which means you get a decent deck for around 8k
Bangers - Chlora, Loocio, Bball, Massiv
AllStars - Alexei, Stacey, Kang, Randy
FPC, LaJunta - currently a budget option is tough with the new popularity of this clan
Freaks - another tough one to play competitively on a budget, but a small support half deck can be pieced together using hula esmeralda, harleen, piotr, olga noel, and mira --- the other half of your deck will have to provide most of the ooomph
Gheist, Nightmare, Sentinels, Vortex - tough on a budget
Jungo - Mindy, Wendy, Radek, Pegh, and Askai are affordable options.
Junks - Gibson Dreen Veenyl Onik and Sentagon
Pussycats - Brittany, Muse, Noemi, Ella and even some of the big dangerous cats like Veronica and Jeyn can work. Svelthlana can step in a much cheaper filler than Gwen or Wanda
Roots - Amanie, Rico, Yookie, Noodile, Jeto, Miken Moose Jeena , roots will be dancing around the bans for weeks to come. With no one card that makes them the powerhouse that they are, shutting them down completely in a particular week is hard to do.
Sakrohm - hard at this time but Murray Corrina Wakai Naboh and Jautya are all decent options
Skeelz - Mandred Greem Redra Deebler Zeke Clay Danae and Chwing are all good or decent cards... but their top cards have always been expensive. You`ll need a half deck that will pair up with them well
Ulu Watu - Nanook Stanley Janice George Kirk Taigo Lin Bee and 1 star Warren give you a few options with them
Uppers - Oxen Samantha Wendel Wayne Stark Frankie Hi Harold Glenn and Nellie should give you affordable options
Rescue - will have to dance around the bans... but i do believe 8000 clintz decks are possible, just dont expect to dominate
Well there you go, have a look at that selection of affordable ELO competitive cards, put some together, and win a bunch of games

Piranas - Hawkins Noel, Spycee, Kristin, Andsom, Sting, Taljion, Tyd, Tula, Ulrich all below 1.5 k
and if you make any more "myth of..." posts you should change your name or picture to mythbusters
No sorry LaJunta cant really put out 4 competitve cards for less than 4k imho
piranhas - ya i forgot them. thanks for the add. although i think Taljion means you are really pushing to include some subpar cards in there.... i consider Andsom Spycee and now even Sting to be subpar for their star count.

Yah, forgot that Taljion is better for monoclan, i just listed the cheapest cards that i've seen often in elo, for a cheap 12* half deck i'd go with Kristin, Tyd, Tula, and Ulrich, all for about 4.3k, which avoids all pill manip somehow...

Sorry, but for Jungo, Askai was staff banned this week, making Jungo very hard to play mono unless you could afford Ongh (20K+).
I listed all the affordable cards (that must have at least 3 affordable friends) that are elo competitive but not perma-banned
askai may float in and out of the decks over the weeks
It's cheaper for to get a competitive deck yes ... but for one week only! Because some of those cards will get banned and you would have to invest in a new clan again so overall you will need to spend much more!
gonna have to disagree with that so far.... at worse you spend another 4k to completely switch a half deck or 8k for a whole new deck.... how much is Blaaster? Copper? Gil??? 1 card for the the price of 8

FPC: Marlysa Cr, Kerozinn Cr, Fei and Chan
and the staff doesn't understand why people don't play FPC that much...
