Skeelz is one of my favorite clans to use as their artworks are my favorites and their logo is amazing aswell but im wondering if they're even viable in elo? Their bonus seems kind of weak in my eyes and its basically having no bonus at all i have all the cards from skeelz and im trying to see if they work better in mono or in half deck and if they work better in half with which clans?
i havent been playing much so i will like to take all your guys input on the situation thanks
Most people use Skeelz as a splash, any combination of Chiara Cr, Plunk and Redra. If you are seriously playing them (not splash) most people go mono to take advantage of cards like sasha, dr falkenstein and sandro. The problem with Skeelz is that they are powerful but lack damage. I think Dounia Cr and Xingshu are starting to change that though, I'm intrigued by the half deck of Dounia Cr Plunk Redra and Xingshu
Xingshu is even stronger than Greem, she is the character that Skeelz have been needing since Greem got ban listed (expelled?)- a 4* bomb. She's good enough to play any round from 2nd round on for good value, if you need her to wall, but in a Skeelz mono deck more likely than not you'll just save her for last to threaten 9-11 gap... just one less gap with fury than Jautya (or Manfred).
The ideal Skeelz mono setup is 3 bombs, 4 walls, and 1 defeat.
The best Skeelz characters have abilities that are the equivalent if not superior to a full ability+bonus- for instance, Sandro matches Nanook, while Sasha's ability is the equivalent of +8 atk ability +8 atk bonus and beats Lehane pill for pill. The clan bonus means that Skeelz 2* and 3* characters are not prey for SOA like the 2* and 3* of other clans.
Sasha can't beat Lehane PfP. They tie at 8 and Lehane wins at 9 and up.
A splash is when you play a single card from one clan into a deck primarily of another clan.
I know Xingshu is the shiznit right now, but I'm still glad I sold her for ~100k.
