Built with Caelus's release in mind. Lots of Skeelz and All Stars running amok. SoB will take care of All Stars nasty -2, while All Stars can handle caelus and his pupils.
I'm trying to build my decks so the weakest hand retains a blanket of active bonuses. Here, the weakest draw is:
Still very formidable and both bonuses are active. Some of the hands here are /very/ nasty.
Hmm I like seeing pill manipulators if they aint aided by a Leader (that makes it totally unfair) why? Because I just try to pick my moment to win a fight and other times I let them have a 1/2 pill advantage for what 2 damage, at least I still have my "big cards" ready to win! What about a 3-1 split? then only 1 bonus is active, are split decks not inferior to mono decks cause in mono you always have your bonus unless against Nightmare/pirahnas?
Dont know from playing these cards but Robb and Stacey would be a good pair of cards, a 8/2 with - 2 0pp power? Ghastly, SoB dosent hurt much unless its playing vs attack manipulating clan and soa dosent hurt much either as 6 power, -2 opp power is still a strong ability, even vs attack manipulators, as there power will likely be the same or lower than her.
"SoB dosent hurt much unless its playing vs attack manipulating clan"
SoB hurts a lot more than that. Takes away power/attack manipulation; turns off SoA bonus; shuts down poison, + life, defeat, etc...
With all the All Stars decks running rampant this week, SoB is a good choice.
Robb I love, but I much prefer the higher base stats here for more stability. This deck isn't about KOing, it's about winning those rounds. The pill manipulation really helps in this regard, and there are still a few two hit KO opportunities to be had.
Hawkins Noel is just a less powerful card. He has +1 damage, and his -pillz is a lot more threatening, especially with it's low minimum. The threat of depleting your Opp's pill reserves always seems to cause more panic than adding to your own.
