I found out that Montana are no longer as good as they once were. Is this due to the new cards that boost other clans to be more useable compare to montana? Few months ago i see Montana frequently used in the ELO tournaments but since the past 3 weeks, it looks like Gheist, Roots and allstars have been dominating the ELO tournaments.
Another fact. Montana and Rescues are like the opposite of one another. However Rescue not only have a better bonus, but they also have better dmg and abilities. And no competitive player will play a half Rescue deck.
Ghoub compare to Murphy... Why must Murphy rely on his ability to have the same damage as Ghoub?
Elvira compare to Vito or Simon?
Lea compare to Prince Jr?
Aurora? Sledg? Glosh with the stopower+3 good in Gheist weeks?
Conclusion Montana need better and balance cards. Discuss.
Montana has amazing cards like Edd, unstopable beast who usually wins with 1 or 2 pills, Mona, great card killer, Avola with her 9 damage, Spiaghi who keeps pills for other cards... Rescue and Gheist dont have cards like that, not to mention Oscar... those 5 cards already make montana still well playable, the rest are just fillers...
Tbh... montana have always been a newbie's clan to me, cheap and effective in lower classmen and upper classmen, people using anything other than montana now means they don't like to use them anymore, they're going through to a better land, but some people will come back to montana, their cards aren't high in damage, but they are one of the best for trickeries, if not the best
I agree montana are not a top tier now, but you are not listing fair comparision either.
Aurora and sledg are not better than avola
Lea is one of the best 2* SOB and can defeat other 2* in low pillz fights. But montana have also one of the the best 2* DR and even is often inserted in 7/1 deck.
Murphy is not often used in ELO and not worth laughing. btw, +2 power has also a small advantage when fighting power=opp.power like randy.
Elvira is one of the best SOA, but montana have also mona. And no one enjoy trading her with wesley.
And how about oscar vs larry?
beverly vs sharon?
krash vs Ficcanaso?
My conclusion: Montana are still at the same level of Rescue. and tbh when I am using them, rescue are one of my favorite opponent.
True... It's not that I dislike Montana, but then there are a lot of times when the low damage have failed me especially during Roots week. Montana is designed to win matches in 2 - 3 rounds. however if opponent have lots of dmg reducers, montana have to ensure that they win every round.
imagine Sharon against yookie. Your damage is reduce to 1 but you can't under pill coz yookie has a 4 dmg waiting as well. you are the person being tricked instead.
Avola against Bristone or any of the Dmg reducers in Roots is also sad.
Imagine going against this hand; Lou / Shakra, Arno, Yookie, Jeena. With Lou/Shakra there you will have to try to win the game fast. If you made a mistake, Lou just have to win one round to ensure victory.
@Jboy : lately 80% of my ELO games are against all stars and Roots.
Every card has its weaknesses. FIrst of all, Shakra's banned. (For now.) Lou and SHakra in the same hand? Type 2 only! Jenna's a wek version of Uranus. Yookie... well, he's good, no denying that. Roots have low damage, die to Pussycats, and are destroyed by Freaks. (Maybe) All Stars are the unfair ones!
