I say go with a 2/3 card splash:
Dregn (if you can afford, if not then either Shaakarti or C Beast will do)
Dagg (if you can't afford use Lovhak or Greem)
Deea (too many cards begin with D >_> )
This guarantees the Vortex bonus in your hand (unless you use Greem over Dagg) while adding 2 good cards from another clan to help with Vortex's weaker (than average) 3*s.
