Barely anyone uses Freaks in ELO - It's all Rescue and Montana and GHEIST (etc.). Freaks is the one clan nobody seams to use.
I know it's probably because of their poor bonus (Nothing compared with SOA or even other Poisoners, like Dolly).
Maybe if it were Poison 2, min. 1 it would be different.
My favorite card when I was starting was Kharl, so Freaks have always been close to my heart.
So... Do Freaks work for you?
How do you do it?
Here is an ELO deck I created (I usually use La Junta), with basically what cards I had:
Boris Esmeralda Olga Olga Noel Soushee Vassili Zoltan
I know it's not great, but it's OK.... Cassandra for Erpeto would make life easier, maybe.
A question for Freaks Half-Deck Players - what clan do you use with them
Freaks are getting the shaft, they are underpowered and underused. The best way I have found to use them, is assume you don't have a bonus, and try to win the old hard way, they just don't have the fire power to go Mono, not saying it cannot be done, but it would be difficult
I used to use them in ELO a lot and I still use them now and then but not mono. There is just no reason I know of to use them mono. Once you have hit your opponent with poison it is like the rest of your cards have no bonus.
