Favor Lamar over Eryton in ELO because Lamar can beat the Pussycat clan bonus and stop Nightmare cards from cancelling his clan bonus out.
Beyond that, like the above poster said, using the power trio of Alexei, Striker, and Marina to get two ability stoppers and a 9 power damage blocker fits more punch into your deck than including an All-Stars five drop. You could also do what a ton of people are doing in ELO right now and mixing underleveled Pussycat cards to fit Lamar and two four drop All-Stars into your deck. It's pretty painful to fight.
That's true, but i believe that Malmoth and Kawan can do real damage and are hard to counter with bonuses. Kawan can deal 7 damage and combo him with any of your All Stars, or fo simple with Malmoth for the 6pills for 5 damage, GGs!
