Tourney Type 2:
Recently, tourney Type 2 revolved a bit too much on the usage of Judge Lynch, Schatzi and Zaveli splashed, paired with 5 or 6 cards of another clan.
We don’t like splash cards to be too popular and this is why we decided to add to the ban list those 3 cards, the same thing we did with similar cards like Phoebe, Beck - Nena and Spyke Mt.
For the most used clans, Bangers and Hive were the most popular options.
We decided to add Joy, Shinobi and Oon Cr to the ban list.
Last but not least, we added both Nekron and Butcher Braxton to the ban list. The reason is that these cards are against the logic of a TQ, and players using these cards would make the matches unnecessary long and frustrating for competitive players.

Tourney Type 1:
Compared to tourney Type 2, in Type 1 high level cards are not played that much since they don’t award the player too many points.
The only exception to this rule was Shinobi, who proved to be extremely popular in Bangers decks.
There was a bit of a ‘trio’ of clans dominating TQ type 1 recently: Bangers, All Stars and Uppers (since the release of McLayton).
We decided to add to the banlist one card for each of those clans: #Robb Cr, Shinobi and Wendel.
We’ve also added Schatzi to the ban list, as he was popular as a splash card here as well.
Last but not least, we decided to restore Lehane by banning John and to restore Floyd by banning Glover, to slightly boost those clans who aren’t too much played at the moment.
We considered a return of Avola as well, but first we want to observe the impact of Mimmo in the DT meta.

As this guide is 2 years old. I am closing this until I find another player willing to give a more updated DT guide.

If anyone knows someone who will be interested in creating a more recent DT guide. Please contact me.

With the new system with standard vs extended etc etc. How do the DT's work now as don't see seperate room for 25* down and 26* up. Are we all lumped into same room now and vs eachother with system autopairing within a certain *count or what? I'm just wondering for purposes of figuring out the highest possible scoring rate strategy deck wise as things do seem to changed a little bit, as I'm racking up much bigger scores with a 25* deck than I use to.

Guidance much appreciated.

Yes, i agree with this. Give people that win by timeout the maximum amount of points possible.

Buying Anakrohm for 11k each for any exp.
Buying quantity unlimited.
Traders are welcome for offers. smiley

Used to grind out Lady Ametia. Read the preset's description for further comment on the deck.

It's boring, and probably not what you want, but playing the market is probably the fastest way to get a full collection. However, the skills required to play the market would be better used for more productive stuff like trading stocks or cryptocurrency, so...

Wow an actual reason why that would be a bad idea instead of someone repeating the same thing again, thanks sylneiros, but I do wonder if there even are that many new players nowadays, if there is though that would be a good reason not to make the change.

I would say Hive Dominion Ghiest are the common clans, but some people use Robert Cobb rainbow deck (9 Big 5* + Robert Cobb)

I'm a Montana for T1 and Tourneys.
Can anyone give feed back on my deck?

Avola, Dr. Elisa, Iris Morana, Figaro, Icaro, Ottavia, Carmine, Waller

I've been pretty successful with this deck in tourneys. Ranking usually 20th and higher. But I'm having troubles in EFC when I reach Danger zone or EFC tower.

In my opinion, I think is mainly because of all the SOA deck in that bracket. My deck mainly uses Dr.Elisa, waller and Icaro to bluff and at the same time chip out some hp for Avola/Iris morana to dish out the winning blows. But against an SOA deck that doesn't work and I have to use different means of winning and its really hard for me (I don't know why).

BUT my opinion could be wrong. Can you guys give me a hint if I should change to a half deck? Or completely stray away from montana on EFC in higher bracket? If so, any suggested clan/decks?

Apologies if I hadn’t gotten back to you via PM. I overall agree with what Hutson has to say.

I do agree with Hutson in the event that Djanghost ld is a must have card for Night decks because of his power reducer.

Tannen works for T2 because of the Backlash not working on Pillz.

I don’t recommend Consuelo at Night because +1 Life per Damage won’t help you win much rounds. You need round winners at Tourney.

It also depends on the hour too.

These days (including myself) I notice it can sometimes be hard to find the time to play a Tourney, hence the lower than 100 players sometimes.

I see Piranas heavy hours, Bangers heavy hours. Raptors heavy hours, Uppers heavy hours sometimes. It’s tough sometimes.

Fang Pi Clang is not in a very good position right now, but Pa Mei is one hell of a card for damage.

I think you should know that Lindsey is a 4 Star card. Check her stats out if you`re interested.

8/5 Revenge -2 Opp. Power and Damage 2, Min 2.
Just my only concern is if this might cause her ban in Tourney though. smileysmiley

Tnx I just remember for some reason that it was every hour whatever ! TNX again!

And Marjory.

It clearly says that it only protects against negatives abilities which can hurt you.
Cancel is much better than Protection btw

Regarding Tourney Bans. Hard to tell as the pattern is less clear. I might suggest waiting monthly for these lists.

EFC on the other hand does weekly. There will be a reintroduction of the voting system for Z Palace players.
