I haven't really tried elo yet because I can't put a good deck together. Jungo hasn't really worked for me.
In Pussycats I have: Effie, Clara, Jeyn, Veronica, and Wanda.
In Montana I have: Giovanni, Simon, Tino, Sharon, and am looking at buying Veccio and Filomena. The good ones are so darn expensive!
I've also got 5 Skeelz since I've heard there's a lot of Gheist in elo.
Can someone help me make a decent deck? Thanks!
With those cards, i'ld ask... what was your jungo deck and why didn't it work? most/all of the jungo cards you'll want/need for a mono deck are pretty cheap.
askai/nahema (pick 1)
nyema/rodney/scopica/radek/jalil/hystrix (pick 3, i listed them in order of strength imo)
you'll be hard pressed to find a more consistently viable deck that rarely runs into elo bans for cheaper, plus they are pretty straight forward to play.
Your cats arnt elo material. Wanda is banned, also a 5 and two 4 stars. Red X
Scoop up noemi, muze and brittany to use with one of your 4's.
Tino, Sharon, Simon, Spiaghi.
Simon because you HAVE to have some SOA with cats.
Spi is the most expensive but for a reason, a must have two star totally important for elo.
@critter23: I started with a Jungo/Pussycats deck as my first when I got started. As Rate said.... Noemi, Muze and either Brittany or Ella are staples of the pussycats half. Add Yayoi (if you can afford) and you have a half that can go with almost anything.
@RateGreenPlz: I agree Radek is underrated... but if your deck needs another big hitter, Nyema is it. If it needs more of a filler or another card that can chip away, Radek is it. I find myself using Scopica less and less (especially with Rodney out). Rodney/Scopica/Radek all fill somewhat the same roll just in different ways. Nyema is separate in that it can create a lifegap of 12 (furried). For a 3*, thats pretty solid.
Agree that if you can get it through un-stopped Nymema hits hard but there is too much manip out to say that it will be successful over 25% of the time. Power manip, attack manip, soa all wreck the card. Even SOB and a min 1 DR hit it. Radek is much more successful though may not always be the winning blow you are looking for.
I had a preset that was a budget deck for Montana and Roots. The Montana half was Donnie, Filomena, Milovan and Sharon. the whole deck was originally 4k total, but now that the prices have inflated, they might be harder for you to get.
If you wanted Jungo, I would definitely get Askai and Radek. The other useful cards tend to be a bit more expensive though, so be prepared to spend a decent amount if you choose Jungo.
Pussycats have Brittany, Candice, Feelyn and Muze. You could use them with your Wanda or Veronica.
Some of the cards I listed are selling for over 1k on the market, but are definitely worth it.
