Yea, I agree that pussycats are very strong overall and would be strong against anything. I think Vortex has a fair shot against them though and that isn't necessarily a good thing. In the interest of conversation... I was in EFC Tower I used Freaks and Ulu Watu. Arturo, Shazam, Chel, Streex, you get the idea. Very good deck. Now I'm in the next zone, whatever it's called again (haven't played any games in it yet) and I found out that the only change I have to make to my deck is take our Chel and put in Eugene. Which is fine by me cuz I had no DR whatsoever before then. So I'm thinking that Freaks is another good clan to have... maybe even pair it with Pussycats... and I think everybody is sleeping on Ulu Watu. Everybody forgot about Streex. He's a beast in this mode when all the other cards get banned.
Ah, Freaks + Pussycats used to be a very popular combination back then with Baldovino/Diana/Liona/Clover/3* Charlie/Esmeralda/Ella/Shazam
But now, I feel like Freaks are better paired with another clan- like you mentioned Ulu Watu instead of Pussycats- since back then Freaks cards had little damage and relied solely on their poison, and Pussycats could provide the life gapping that Freaks need. But now Freaks has cards like Arturo, Antoinette, and Ramath. they might be better paired with another defensive clan like Roots for that SoA that Pussycats can't provide..
But I might do Freaks / Pussycats in Polit Area with Sera M1/ Liona / Madelone / Choko / Clover / Shazam / Wonald / Ginger
R.I.P my clintz (Something I don't have in the first palce xD)
