I'm an avid Vortex player and believe I have a lot of the better cards in the clan, DregnDaggOflgn etc. I also like to entertain the idea that I'm reasonably skilled at the game. I've played off on on for a long time and I do reasonably well in tournaments and I can manage to bring my Elo up. Thing is though, I'm having a very hard time of it. It's frustrating when the majority of my victories are dependent entirely upon how poor of a player the other person is as opposed to how skilled I am. I sometimes win because my opponent is just bad at math, and as such my win rates become inconsistent once I'm against good people.
The chief aspect of the Vortex clan that frustrates me is that they feel reactionary. With their bonus not helping them in fights I rely primarily upon anticipation and careful losses to pull out a win, as opposed to being able to play aggressively. Also, the clan has no reliable attack manipulation that affects the other player, and no response at all to SoA. When I see the GHEIST team background at the beginning of a fight, I contemplate forfeiting immediately. The clan is pitifully weak sans abilities.
I've had more success half decking with Uppers or Nightmare but even so I feel like I could have a team that nets much higher odds of winning. In the face of things like Huracan, Junkz, Sentinel and Rescue, Vortex feel useless, which is a shame because I really like the Clan.
Any avid Vortex players know how to play around the clans weaknesses?

I threw this together last night and have been experiencing mild success in ELO with it. But I wanted to get some input from different people on any ways I could tweak it to improve upon what already there. Is this viable for ELO or should I be going a completely different route. I am an old school player returning, so I am coming back and trying to figure this out. Skeelz in general are pretty much new to me. I have been cashing in on all parts of my collection that have gone CR so clintz is really no object unless your are talking 300k plus.
Also, any insight on how i should approach playing this deck against known top performers in ELO is welcome as well. Again, i am trying to re learn the meta. Thanks and take care.
I am a big fan of 4/4 decks, I think it creates better decks and makes it harder to counter.
The thing is and maybe this is just me, I have been counting since the last few days and I keep getting 3/1 hands in, on average, 7 out of 10 matches.
And its not even against 3/1 hands, its normally against mono or 2/2.
So anyone complaining against this? And this becomes more frequent the higher i get in elo.
