Honestly, this one's been the hardest for me, overall, I think. I've never needed more than 4-5 tries to finish it off, and usually I can finish Hardcore in 1-2 goes. The Freaks, + more life, has given me repeated issues with my current deck (since we lose ties...). I'll be interested to see your half this next HQ!
Well, I guess that depends on the "type of play", and of course which clans we feel un/comfortable.
I'm sure when the Rescue HQ will arrive I will suffer a lot (I normally suffer against them), and probably with Piranas not that much, but I will suffer. Other clans... I will see, but I'm not worried about them, by now X-D
