This is just silliness
my 15 stars to his 12 stars, not a complete mismatch in terms of star count...
triple olding basically won me the game, just for kicks i didnt bother pilling the last round.
win with 12 pills remaining and an 8-2 life advantage
I seem to win against Montana quite frequently by dring the hell out of them with a pussycat half and then nuking them with Jautya lol. Montana users always wanna get their bonus in when they should realize they shouldn't bother winning a round if they're only gonna deal 1-2 damage and I can deal 8-12 in one round
Still I've always had to pill up on Jautya. I wanna know what Waster's hand was and what he was facing
I think a well-built deck and plays rarely run into a first-turn win/lose situation. I can't really spend for DTs, because, let's be honest... When I go to DT rooms I just push buttons for the free credit (and the tiny chance of CR win, I guess.)
However, in ELO, that situation usually results either from strong poison or from a perfect-pill play that leaves one player completely unable to recover. This week, Freaks are most likely to be the cause of such incidents.
My recommendation is to pack something heavy into your decks to counter Freaks damage. FPC is great with a little bit of SoB/CoB as well as the ability to easily counter a Freaks player who overpills 1st turn. Bonus: They are great at fighting Bangers for all of the same reasons.
