Personnaly i dont have alot of Clintz. This means that i genrally have to play Elo to survive, because i cant win against High-powered elo banned cards, and cant afford them to use for myself.

My main problem now though is Piranas. I personnaly liked playing attack manipulating decks such as Uppers and All Stars because i could get a strong deck for only 8000 clints or less. But now it seems like half of the people i play have pirana decks! Their ability is devastating! Imo it destroys Montana, Uppers most All Star, Sakrohm, Bangers and Ulu-Watu and Rescue. Junks and Sentinel are hindered drastically too! No healing for Jungo, no poisen for Freaks! Fang Pi Clang and La Junta can say goodbye to their damage bonus. Roots and GHIEST loose there stop ability and Vortex and Pussy Cats have no bonus to fall back on when they die.

This would be understandable if Piranas characters wernt so powerful themselves, and sure they have very few 8 power BUT!!! They have pill manipulation!! Pill manipulation is a super-strong but risky form of attack manipulation. Hawkins Noel (2 star) 7 power with +2 pillz, provided you win is like +14 attack?!! And Scrubb in a mono deck is like +24 attack?!?!?!??!?!?!?

DOES THIS CLAN HAVE ANY WEAKNESS? If they do please let me know, if someone can suggest a deck to counter them for under 10k clintz I would be very gratefull. Thanks for reading

Hi Guys & Gals,

I’ve been a mono La Junta player for a while now and with the new ELO 15 life thing I’m thinking of making a new deck with my Geist/Vortex cards.

I’m trying out a different approach: creating big live gaps with these two clans, I like being non-predictable .
This is my first setup:

- Dr Saw
- Arkn
- Wurmhol
- Methane

- C Wing
- Cyb Lhia
- Dagg
- Oflgn

Thinking about this setup (5-444-2222) because GHEIST en Vortex have great 2*, and it's fun to pill with these 2 stars, so you're not so predictable

Dr.Saw (very underestimated) and Oflgn create the the Gaps (max +12 & +14). The 2* poison to extend the gaps and two deadly 4* for support (Methane & Dagg).

No DR’s in this deck so these could be some possible changes:
- Methane & Arkn > Bristone & Dolly (or even Leviatonn)
- C Wing > Neloe

I would love some help with this deck, Thanks in advance!

It's a Freaks deck with Spiaghi for the new 15life.

Please let me know if there's a better way to do this. Ty

Hello there! I wonder if anyone would consider giving me some tip on a good ELO deck.
Right now I consider building one with the following:

All Star
Kang 3*
Randy 3*
El Gringo 5*
Dan or Bhudd 3*
Tot: 14*

Pam 3*
Lea 2*
Bobby 3*
Slyde 3*
Tannner 3*
Elvira 3*
Anita 3*
Tot: 11* (hopefully)

As you can see a Allstar/Rescue dual-deck. I'm not sure about wich Rescue to use. Later it will perhaps become a mono Rescue deck.

Any advice would be appreciated!

The fang pi half deck i use is 13* consisting of Kuei Fei Marlysa Cr and Chan . I want to know whats a good clan to pair them up with do i go for DR or 2 hit ko potential for example. I know in the 15 life elo 2 hit ko is a no no but I will use the deck for T1/survivor elo aswell so it's deffinately there to consider. Looking for any useful tips/advice from elo players who've managed to do well with fang pi in the past. Thanks guys

With all the new changes and blaaster and Shann being banned.

Bangers cant have a decent deck for elo. most staple cards now have 8 power or power reduction abilities. Bangers hardly able to maintain the power gap. staff, please review this matter. power +2 is useless now. you should never create power more than 7. its not fair. for example, Puff with sob, 9, wtf

This new ELO mode its quite unbalanced. In the hope to make powerful the Freaks and the Pussycats now we have a game where only poison and life gain count cause no more KO is possible. An easy and cheap Sakrom/pussycat can just win outright every fight, and that's unfair. Not that I liked the KO strategy much, but now we have reached the opposite.

I just think that its not changing the game that cards and clans that suck will become useful, cause many will become useless in spite of them. Now Lin Xia and Vince have a use, but how many cards will not be seen again?

Last thing: its useless a double ban in ELO. Or we ban or the staff ban, cause the two ban together can just create a "non usable" clan every week, as has happened many times. People should vote and Staff decide: better.

Then one question: but the people in the staff hates so much the GHEIST, its 4 months I can't use them...?

With a 15 life gap, this has now changed the tables for Freaks, there bonus last longer, and they can survive longer to take more turns. I can already tell my freak deck is doing way better now. Consider them when having duel (Or if your crazy, running Mono Freaks) that there doing much better now.

You know what my strategy was when 12 life was still around when I used Freaks/Jungo? Create an unbeatable life gap in 2 rounds. It's actually easier than those THKOs. I don't see what the point of this 15 life stuff was.

With the new ELO 15 life system, I am going to try a life-leech deck with half Nightmare. But what should my other half be? My cards are:
Azel (Heavy Poisoner, the key to my Nightmare half)
Mawpin (Great potential power and damage for 2*)
Pan (Life gainer with nice power)
Phyllis (A potential 7/4 that eats up damage reduction, great for 2*)

I want to stay away from Freaks since I already have a heavy poisoner in my deck, Azel. I don't like Pussycats. Maybe Jungo? Sakrohm? I dunno... any advice/deck ideas would be great
Thanks in advance

How do you guys think my deck will fare versus all those Piranhas?


It works well against pretty much everything I think. Any suggestions? Maybe more atk manip? I dunno

I have my Mono Pirana Deck, and I have :


Bonnie Ld







And I'm debating on whether I should take out my Reath, and Hawkins, for Tyd and Ector.

What do you think?

I'm running a mono-Piranas deck right now. My deck right now is Bonnie Ld, Hawkins Noel, Tula, Tyd, Ector, Andsom, Scubb and Selma. I have enough to buy Hawkins right now and in another day or two will have enough for Dhalia but it will be a little while until I get both. Which should I get first? Should I get either? Thoughts? I'm also thinking about getting Ahkab at some point. Is that a good move?
