OK, so first things first.
I used to be good at DT's before the rules changed (Top 10 was not a problem for me).
I used all the time a Uppers/Montana deck.
With a lot of banned ELO cards.
Now I suck, I barely get into top 150.
So I need decks that will help me get back into the top.
I have all cards except collectors and Jungo, Pussycats, Skellz and freaks.
I DO have Vickie Cr and Alec Cr, but they are both ELO banned.
I just REALLY MISS those awesome DT's.
I really really hope some one can help me.
What everyone is saying is that a deck can't get you into the top 10 anymore, so deck ideas won't really help. Try monoclan Sentinel or Junkz for something new:
Nobrodroid (underrated DT card)
There are top 10 regulars using both decks, but they're +/- and conventional enough that you should be able to transition from your old Montana/Uppers without too much trouble. Montana and Uppers, of course, remain options, but it sounds like you're not playing them very well and were relying on the ELO banned cards as a crutch.
Try the Montana Return
I believe that deck can go far in DT's...i started to play DT's 2 days ago...and today i got
"You ended up 46 with 304 Battle points."
I know that now all Pro DT players will say like that is nothing...but I am jus getting used to DT's...i believe that i can go far with that deck
anyway if you wanna try out here it is
MONTANAS THE RETURNS !!!!
Fast is fun is contradicting himself a bit, copper rarely leaves the banlist and hugo/eyrik are starting to be regulars as well, you're using 3 5* elo banned cards, which btw, can give you no battle points, (copper hugo eyrik, coby is 6 points for a win, and -6 for the elo bans, you win 2 wins at most since you 2 hit ko, so you end up with like 3 points at most, totally not worth it) of course, on weeks when copper and hugo/eyrik arent banned go ahead, but still, 3 5 stars is not a good idea.
@kdgns: three five star cards is fine; the odds that you'll draw all three are low and you'll blast through the games in which you do. More important is the average hand size: 15. That means you'll get 10 points, on average, from winning + round wins and pill bonuses. That's not an unreasonably low amount if you move at a decent clip. You start getting overstarred around 32-33, unless you're at that level because you're using 9 or 10 cards in order to reduce hand averages.
For the sake of comparison, a 26* deck averages 13 points for a winning hand. You're going to lose some points from rounds because of the higher star cards as well, but probably pick up a few with a higher win ratio and more +BP from remaining pillz. It ends up being a question of ... DRUMROLL ... speed. If the extra stars allow you to complete an extra two games and convert two probably losses to wins, well, they were a good investment, despite the lower per game output.
More importantly, it appears that you don't correctly understand the ELO ban penalty. STAFF banned cards get a -2 penalty. PLAYER banned cards, not so much. Copper, Shakra, Caelus, Sylth, etc. are unencumbered in DT play. The only card you're going to get a penalty with from either deck is Hawk.

You may notice some gaps in the time, yeah I took a break yet with winning around 20 points each battle was good for me. Top 150 btw.
