I've been thinking of picking up an Elkore to use her in coordination with Skeelz..my reasoning being that I tend to play the Skeelz deck fairly defensively and finish at the end, anyway, and I might as well steal some of my opponents pills. I'm currently using the popular mono skeelz preset, but wanted to hear your opinions on using that deck, minus Manfred and Cley (I find Cley isn't usually that useful) for Elkore and Liam. Liam plays defensively anyway (and is an ideal anti-Kolos counter, and other things), and Elkore makes up for the loss of Cley's damage. However, losing Manfred would be a hit, too. I'm not really sure if Elkore is worth the trouble. What do you guys think?
I think Eklore could be pretty cool, but i would NOT give up Manfred. i've won a lot games just by furing him on the last turn after winning 1 round. with fury he's a 12 point gap in life. i don't know though. Eklore will force your opponent to play different. may just need to test it.
I think Eklore is better with clans like, Sakhrom, Junkz, and possibly Piranhas. The idea is that Junkz and Sakhrom already have a +attk bonus which causes people to pill more than they need to to win fights, thereby creating a pill advantage (the Pirates, on the other hand, just create RAW PILL ADVANTAGE through abilities), which Eklore intensifies.
Clans such as Montanas and Rescue are better suited using Hugo, obviously.
She tends to make people pill rather early and predictably. I can't say how well she would do for you, but I think a different leader would be a better choice. I've seen some Ashigaru users, which I thought was an interesting and tech-y choice.
