In all, I think I love the under dog clans in this game and not so much the most frequently used like the Sao, Puss, and Upp's. I like the Nightmare and GHEIST they are sneaky and take allot of cunning and luck to use. I own every card for both clan, doubles of some of the more promenant memebers and i fear to say it but i'd rather use them then allot of the "Vommit" Cards I've seen so far. I am so tired of seeing Grax, Uranus, Venyl, Gabriel, Charlie, all the pussy cats, and all the friggin Uppers in every deck, it's enough to give you a head ache, you end up playing the same hand atleast 100 times. I'd rather see innovation and spirit, more calculation in ELO, wonder what ever happened to that idea I had for ELO, Personally in my guild I'm going to implement it. But I don't think you should sell the Nightmare and Ghesit clans short, some of them maye just surprise you in the end.
Whilst I agree with the sentiment I gotta defend those players by saying that there are a few factors responsible.
1. Players themselves are to blame by instructing others on the clan,deck to use
2. the clans are un-balanced and those used most often the most obviously powerful in battle
3. Sakrohm's defence ability is un-rivaled making this clan a logical choice
I think the answer lies in the balance of cards.Perhaps by issuing each clan with it's own Graxmxxt-type card...we might see a better spread of clans used.There is no doubt that nightmares could use help in the mix....some good cards....but mostly a useless clan to fight with.
And yes....for those who may recognise me....I DO play with a full Sacrohm deck with doubles.....but after trial and many beatings....it's come down to that.The hardest clan for me to come up against?...why it's good-old Sakrohm again....followed by Uppers.Kinda shows the imbalance right there.
I agree, Uppers and Sakrohm are overused. if they ban Zatman and graxsmxxt, then those clans will be a little more balanced. i bought a Uranus and i haven't even used the card since i'm sick of seeing it so much.
vman, i'd use Ielena and Armand(or Ratanah) instead of Estalt and Kiki, but whatever works for you.
Roots have high power and good abilities, i don't know why they aren't used too much in elo.
here's a Roots/Montana elo deck
(if only montanas had a stop opp bonus for elo)
