I've played A LOT with Montana
, so here is my two cents:
SOB does not get wrecked by Montana
. DareSmurfMe said it well in that with SOB against Montana
, you just have to pick when to win. The majority of the time, 2 round wins with and SOB clan (Nightmare
in particular) can out gap a Montana
hand without Avola
playing 0 pills? 3 pills? 8 pills? If you get hit by any poison card with Montana
, you pretty much have to win all remaining rounds and even then it becomes close.
The same life-gap deal applies to SOA clans. Sure Montana
still have their bonus, but you have to play PERFECTLY. 2 hits from either SOA clan will have enough of a life gap to win. Some Montana
cards work fine against SOA (Desmond
, even Mona
) but Spiaghi
etc. lose their effectiveness, and Oscar
gets 5 power. When playing with Montana
, I am more afraid of SOA than SOB. And seeing as Leviatonn
was unbanned this week, my trip to 1314 so far has seen GHEIST
(not even exaggerating) 1 in every 2 matches. I wouldn't be game to play mono Montana
. (although I am playing half)
comparison is fair enough, but cards these days are getting better and better. It's bound to happen.
I'm not sure if you've noticed, but Montana
DO in fact get bans on occasion - Mona
is the most common. Avola
was banned reasonably recently too.
Just a note: I'm abusing the Beeboy
- Blaaster Cr
combo while I can.
