You can play them okay, but it does take a bit more strategy and getting used too. Also high Damage decks are a pain, cause if you even let one of them through you instantly are on the back foot. Attack Mod decks with Hugo suck too. But I suppose its like any deck, it just takes some getting used to.
They could be very good DT cards, although it will depend on what comes down the pipe. My thinking is that using them in a 4+4 setup and starting with decent damage from the other side could give you very good lock possibilities in rounds 2 and 3, such that you can move a Vortex or other card to KO and your opponent won't/can't have enough pillz to beat both KO threats after the Vortex pill recovery.
Just did a tourney with that deck (Beetenka instead of Jackie, since I still don't have her!)
22 Fights, 11 Wins, 2 Draw, 9 Losses, 310 pts
Not a terrible result, but not great. I think I agree, with some better cards, this clan could really own. (Had a couple of fights where I could all pill Vortex cards to try and KO, with no fear of losing, just to be able to attack again next round). Also, I'm still getting used to the cards! *excuses*
So yeah, I hope they do release some better cards! (P.S. Neloe was very useful in some situations, but not so useful vs. Jackie + Rubie)
Cyb Lhia 8/1 Poison 2 min. 4
C Blade 7/4 Stop: Power +2
Lehrg 6/6 Revenge: -2 opp. power min. 4
Oflgn 7/5 +1 life per damage
Oflgn looks good for ELO, creating a powerful 10-14 life gap or losing and regaining pills, but maybe not so good for tourneys due to 5 stars and not quite enough damage.
Cyb Lhia has the highest natural power of the clan, and is only 2 stars, but again, perhaps not so useful in tourneys, except as a 2 star filler to win a round and lose the match.
Lehrg has nice damage, a good KO finisher IMO, especially trying to KO with the card before, win = KO, lose = pills + activate Lehrg's revenge. In my opinion this card will be good in DT.
C Blade is perhaps a Jackie counter, vs. Jackie it is a 9/4, and usually needs to pill 1 over to win. with fury that's 6 damage, so this card could be a good finisher in a DT.
So I think perhaps Vortex' chances in a DT have improved? Perhaps something like Jackie Nellie Oxen Rubie and then Lehrg C Blade Deea Cyb Lhia . That would make a 26* deck
