So, as the title says.
1.) Montana vs Uppers.
a.Who's more solid overall?
c. vs SOB?
2.) In halfs? (I kinda get that nellie, rubie, oxen and wendel is a really common half deck which kinda says that they're better but I want everyone's opinion)
3.) In mono? (common answer would prolly be montana but I'd like everyone's opinion once again)
I'm looking to try out both in ELO so if anyone can post a deck that works for them with either clan either as half or mono, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
If you are looking for a balance between the two halfs, uppers is better. But if you want a more one-sided deck, with one side being higher starred than the other, Montana has very good low star haf deck options, with Spiaghi, Mona, Edd, and Prince Jr. This is a very basic half, and ace is another strong two star which can be used in place of Prince or Spiaghi, depending on the other half of your deck. Clans I would match with a low-star montana deck would be Pussycats, Berserk, and Nightmare.
Uppers are better for the most part in balanced or where their star-count is higher than the other half. Strong cards to use would be Dorian, Nellie, Oxen, Rubie, Samantha, and Harold is a personal of mine. A higher-star half could have cards like Dorian, Nellie, Rubie, and Samantha. I would pair a clan like Piranas, all stars, and maybe freaks. For a more balanced upper half, I would switch out nellie or dorian for oxen or wendel. I would pair these with all stars, pussycats, berzerk, but really anything would work.
This is only my opinion, so feel free to ask for a second. hope this helps!
Their best halfdecks
Don't go mono its predictable
Uppers generally bit better against non stop cards but montana can handle stoppers better, montana can do some tricky ko-s with mona/gianfranco and don and spiaghi is awesome. Montana gets my vote.
I would avoid Rubie. She's great in DTs but 5 power is not gonna get you anywhere in ELO.
Uppers have more solid high stars, Montana lower stars. It's a tough call, and it depends on the deck, obviously.
Mono Montana works. Mono Uppers is pretty hard without splashing though, their 2* lineup sucks compared to others.
This week I used a high level uppers half (I think it was usually like, Maurice, Dorian, Oxen, Wendel) with clans that could use low* like Vortex/Piranas. There wasn't a lot of SoA this week, as far as I've seen, so I could get away with it.
@losingsleep: Rubie is beautiful at calling bluffs, blocking ablility-dependent cards, and is low starred and high damaging. She works well, but she falls to Piranas and nightmare
@Fear: Gianfranco can become a big liability if he ends up without another clanmate in your hand. His 7 power without and ability or bonus becomes useless against almost everything. Don also has power too low to be worth it for a five-star. It is better to use a five-star in another clan, and replace him with ace, or edd, or if you can't afford him, donnie works too.
