I'm currently running a Type 1 Mono Piranas Deck -- Taljion Rules.
My problems with the deck are mainly that it has low damage. I'm encountering a lot of survivors who are able to win with huge life-gap creators and damage reducers. Should I sub in an all stop (Kristin or Spycee) to help deal with the ugly abilities? Problem is, I don't feel either of them are quite so sturdy.
I'm finding all-stops (or really, SOA) lead to punishment - the opponent can throw a couple of pills in with little to fear - either I win an deal a little bit of damage, or they pick up a few points of damage. Jackie and Shakra make me want to pull my hair out (though I don't encounter these every game, thank god).
Secondly, I particularly have problems fighting Skeelz, and the oh-so-vanilla but effective Uppers deck with some combination of Jackie, Dorian, Rubie, Oxen, Zatman, and Nellie.
Any suggestions for overcoming these shortcomings? Maybe add a Leader or switch to half-half?
