I loled at post 52
I probably wouldn't play GHEIST/Nightmare without them. They are fairly staple. Wait till they're unbanned.
Or - 2opp damage
Don't play Piranas/Nightmare. You are better off playing Piranas mono or Nightmare/Junkz. See, they have the same bonus, so you risk 3/1 hands for nothing.
Jungo could work well too?
11* or 14* aren't half decks. True they consist of 4 cards, which is half of 8, but in terms of stars, one "half" is rather too much bigger than the other "half" to call either of them "half". I see what you mean, it is an issue of naming
Anyway, I agree peeps would run 2 beastly all stops, which is why I suggested ban Curlix who is way more OP than Shakra. And the appearance of your Shakra will only happen a tiny portion of the time.
If you want to talk about Roots bans/unbans, there's a thread elsewhere now, but I'll just say that Lou would be a fairer unban than Shakra and you certainly couldn't allow both unbanned anyway so Shakra is a moot point. But you can easily argue Shakra should return and Curlix should go
Yeah I'm running this, its actually pretty good, and the 4x 2* hand is pretty strong
The late Kefalo once referred to the Huracan as a clan of bricks, as every card was something you threw at your opponent and hopefully would smack him in the jaw. In my (arrogant) opinion, the Riots are very similar to them, but ultimately a step up in terms of card variety and tactics. Cards like Copernica, Hartnell, Octana, Farman, Boomstock, Geo, and Molder are still very much bricks, but the Riots also pack a number of walls with cards like Van Wesel, Grouchy, Lindsey, Kenjy, and Reeplay (also kinda Geo again). Lastly, Pericles makes for one of the greatest mind-game opportunities this game has to offer, while also tentatively filling in both of the previous categories.
All in all, I like the clan. Lots of potential. I feel like they would go well with a GHEIST half (granted, I have no clue what any good GHEIST halves are), and your Standard Vortex Half (Cyb Liha/C Wing/Dagg/T Gaank) would probably synergize well too.
I used this deck myself this week and it got me to 1300 ELO. I'm afraid to keep playing though
Oh, Glorg or Magenta . . .
Idk , but myself, I've always preferred Magenta. Glorg is mainly good when he has his Bonus and ability, otherwise :
Glorg < Magenta
I am probably not the only one who isn't clear how these abilities work; I've only seen Dawn and Earl in ELO and the other players have always played them first round. That's why I thought Earl's ability was like Eyrik's, since it reduced power by 1.
Well you might want to get your vision checked. *rimshot*
Use Miss Lizbeth in a deck you would use Lizbeth.
When I think of Junkz, I mainly look at these cards:
5* - Haze
4* - Qubik, Dawn
3* - Tremorh, Romana, D4 Funk
2* - Flanagan
I think they're a good low star half with many 3* options and relatively solid 4* choices. In general, they lack damage but provide good utility and match control.
Since damage is a weakness, pairing them with a high star clan with good damage / DR is ideal.
Off the top of my head
Pussycats with Leela, Florida Jane, Diana + Lucy + Nabrissa
Uppers with any combination, although Lady stands out here
All-Stars with Crazy Carlo, Marina, Saki if you ever get such a gimmick week
Jungo with Ongh, Pegh
They did do this but they stopped it. If they think a card should be banned they now perma banned it and leave the temp bans to the players.
So... they expect you to pill hard, but instead you pill nothing???
thats freakin genius, im gonna try this in my next battle. thanks!
For mono, I think the strongest are Jungo and La Junta. Not many other decks are as good at playing mono (Rescue aside).
mono Roots / GHEIST I think are both pretty lacklustre atm, and mono Nightmare is still average as always. mono Piranas are playable though, but I wouldn't put them up there.
Roots half-deck is pretty strong, and so are All-Stars, so you can look for something to pair with them. Jungo can half-deck pretty well too.
Could really go on a lot longer, but it would help if you're a little more specific with what your preferences are. Do you prefer high damage deck, lots of SOA/SOB, lots of manip....? etc. etc.
