A few days ago I read a thread with people saying that Berzerk sucks without Spyke, so I thought I would publish the preset that I've been using and would like all of your feedback on.
This is a deck without Spyke, or Elvis, even though the latter is only occasionally banned.
I find the SOB to be quite handy.
Also, this week I made a deck with Elvis.
Yep, no Spyke allowed. Obviously I would use him if he were unbanned.
I won't use berzerk without Cortez though. People may hate the backlash, but I find his power + damage is so great (and a -2 with min 2 on top of that) that the backlash with min 4 doesn't matter. In fact, it's only caused me to lose once. And the headache it gives SOA clans is great.
UM_Aaa How do you prevent or mitigate a loss you need to take with a no Lola draw? I'd choose Chiara/Redra or Uranus/Aleister (or Spiaghi) over Bernie and Uma any day. Melanie is great because of her protection power.
