I was wondering if Pussycats would be a viable clan to climb with in the new game mode.
I was thinking something like this:
Sera M1 / Vixen / Malicia / Muse / Clover / Lucy / Ella /Nabrissa
I was thinking it is possible to fury with Muse and then lose with everyone else for a bit of support.
However, that deck will only get me to Dark Corners. So in order to get to pilot area, I was thinking:
Sera M1 / Vixen / Malicia/ Clover / Jayzel / Ginger / Nabrissa / Lorea
And then finally, for Z Palace I was thinking:
Slayer / Vixen / Deborah / Mina / Choko/ Lorea / Roxie / Ginger
Well, I thought about using Diana over Malicia, but overall, the net heal of Malicia is greater than Diana. Also, I'm wasting most of my pills to get Muze's poison off, so most of the times, I won't have enough pills to win with Diana, but that being said, I COULD use her as a bluff, but I already have Sera M1 and Malicia for that spot, and at least if Malicia loses, I'll have the same +3 life that Diana has. But Diana does have that 8 power... and her coupled with Ditha or Slayer is a unwinnable combo, but still..
*Correction I didn't mean net heal, I meant the damage. I do realize the life gapping of Diana is greater, but Malicia has a pseudo -1 Opp Damage min 0.
And that, to me, is more valuable than Diana's +3 life since most people expect me to pill on Malicia because that 5 damage is really nasty with Muze's poison.
Also, with Malicia heal, cards like Clover Noel can actually completely negate the damage and even GAIN life. For example, with 4 damage cards, Clover noel -2 damage coupled with her +2 life will completely negate that damage and with Malicia heal, you'll have a net gain of one life. It's a net gain of 2 life with 3,2, and 1 damage cards. Not to mention it makes DRing with Clover super easy.
Pussycats are definitely good. I used them in the lower zones and didn't see as many people using them as I shoulda... cuz they were totally awesome. Now that I'm in higher zones I'm sure PC has caught on in the lower zones... but I will give all of you one warning about PC.
I'm in EFC Tower right now and all I see is Vortex. Now I don't know if that's cuz the LD mission was just getting over (was it? I really don't pay attention,) or if somebody just decided that Vortex makes, without a doubt, the best mono deck in EFC Tower... but I am NOT exaggerating when I say that 3 out of 5 games I play are going to be against mono vortex. Namely... T Gaank, Rahi, Sarah, Khaali, Naele semi-evo. I think PC would really struggle with this.
Oh yes, I'm facing against many Vortex, too.
But I don't really struggle with them.
The pseudo Dr of Clover Noel and Malicia is enough to cover T Gaank, and you can always bluff with Muze to force some pills out of them and play with Vixen. Honestly, it's just mind games versus Vortex, and if you win the mind games, and they force just enough pills, you'll win. I've noticed that most people play T Graaks with 4 pills, and Khaali with 6, so I play accordingly and try to use my pillz sparingly. I have to say though, Lucy and Ginger makes for nice walls.
