I'm currently running a Montana deck which is based around hitting 8 damage with Don or Valter Bianco, then picking the 4 damage off however I can. It's been really fun to play and quite successful in T1.
The deck is:
***** Don (8 damage)
***** Valter Bianco (8 damage)
*** Gianfranco (a 7/4 with protected bonus
*** Mona (6/4 with -2 opponent damage - a strong candidate to follow up 8 damage)
*** Bella LD (a 6/4 with cancel opponents power and damage modifier - allows her to hit her 4 damage with regularity)
** Icaro (7/2 with -1 life win or lose allows it to set up 3 damage cards like Carmine or Homy)
** Homy (6/3 damage exchange)
** Carmine (6/3 with -3 min 3 damage reduction)
Am I missing anything obvious with Montana here? I was thinking Ricardo for Carmine for the guaranteed -3 damage rather than growth? Budget isn't an issue, I've got the full set, I just want to know if I can improve this deck anywhere, thanks!
