I was trying to make a survivor deck wit mono fpc, but I really don't know what the best card would be, there are so many great choices. What do you guys think are the 10 best cards? I am personally going Hattori, Saitamurai, Dokuja Ld, Ryu Kenden, Khann, Kinjo, Nekurembo, Tsubame, Tameshi and Sung Tsu, but I also have (and could see being used) Kagura, Lao Cr, Yoshida, Fei, Heitachi, Hiruma, Shao Xue, Shizawa, Tomoe, Wu Tong, and even Mamba, Pa Mei and Sambo. Jesus, what a monstrous weeb clan. I understand Lee Long is apparently a consensus as far as survivor monsters go, but I would really like to know everyone's opinion on the more nuanced cards. Is it worth including any of the leaders, for instance? How has everyone's experience been with this kind of deck so far?
In survivor, having a rather low star count helps a lot.
Therefore Mamba is an absolute pillar of the clan, the other obvious choice being Saitamurai. Lee Long is also good. The rest depends on how you want to play, and what clan you match your FPC with.
Indeed, for most clans, building a mono for survi T3 is a bad idea, as the last slot are going to be filled with objectively mediocre cards (compared to what your opponent will have).
For instance Lao Cr and Kinjo will get destroyed by absolutely everybody. Tameshi and Tomoe, while not being bad, are weak compared to what you want from a 5* and a 4* respectively. Shizawa and Sung Tsu are very contextual so will often make you lose a match.
If you really want a mono, putting a leader is a really good idea.
After reading the comments and playing a bit, I'm starting to reconsider. I mean, it's sounds fun to me to try and make mono decks work, but after getting destroyed by around 10 different junkz/riot combinations in a row, maybe it really isn' meant to be. Thanks for the help, guys.
