I'm not a big fan of Rosa
. She takes up a lot of room at 4*, and with 6 power she's hard to get through. Too many things blunt her effectiveness, like SOA, SOB and even DR (poison of 1 isn't much). I think the general consensus is that Edd is superior.
This deck plays differently depending on whether you draw Avola
. If you do, the 2-hit KO becomes a definite factor. Option 1: open with Oscar
or Edd (or anyone other than Spiaghi
, really) with 3-5 pillz, hoping it gets through, and you'll have 3 rounds to decide when to all-pill Avola
for the KO. Option 2: open with Oscar
or Edd with 1 or 2 pillz (bluff), hoping your opponent overpills, then wipe him out with Avola
at your leisure.
It gets trickier without Avola
, because the rest of your deck is a bit light on damage. Don't bother with 2HKO (no, not even with Sharon
and Edd), you need to arrange it so that your opponent's big damage cards are either blocked by DR (Ottavia
) or overpowered (Oscar
, Edd, Mona
). Edd with 1-3 pillz is a common first move, but depending on your opponent's hand you could lead with Sharon
, Prince Jr
or even Spiaghi
. Use that -12 opp attack to your advantage, and you're likely to emerge victorious after 4 rounds.
BTW, if you keep getting 2HKO'ed, why not dangle some bait? Bluff round 1, then put in enough pillz to stop the 2HKO round 2.
And yes, Uppers
and pill manipulation (especially Piranas
) give Montana
a harder than usual time, but the same principles apply.
