Somehow this guy got the exact same cards as me. Anyway, what can be improved? I like Ahkab as it is a great bluff and can be used to 2hk0 with fury. Basically quite a few pill manipulator.
Yup I am still considering if I should choose Raeth or Scubb when he is unban.
Thanks for your valuable input. I'll bear that in mind.
IMO, Piranas are ability-reliant too. Tyd comes in handy like all of you said. But I'm still considering the power of Ector since I've tried to use it and it helps quite a lot in solving damage problem/DR problems. As for Raeth and Scubb, Both can get the damage in in different ways.
Scubb is generally better in a mono deck for his sheer pill manip - you can pill 10 and still come out ahead if he pills hard too. I've never NOT had Scubb in a mono, his synergy with Selma is insane - win with Scubb, then if you have enough pills, you can win outright with Selma. But you use Ahkab, so it might be different/harder with 6 power
Raeth MIGHT be better for your deck, since you seem to be aiming for -pill manip. That will give you a lot of low pill battles. In low pill battles, attack manip. is king - that's why Montana/Rescue absolutely excel in 1-3 pill battles
Ector IMO seriously comes down to personal choice - it's great when you can get him through, and he's not affected by DR. But he doesn't have anything that helps him win..and if you overpill him way too much, you win the round, but lose the whole battle because you don't have enough pills to get Scubb through.
Another thing is, you want some not so ability reliant cards - as you said, Piranas are ability reliant, and they also have pretty bad base stats, so if your opponent has one, or even two SoA abilities, you need to pick which cards to "throw". Tyd gives you an easy out. Ector (7/2) becomes one more headache among Scubb (6/5), Coleridge (4/6), Puff (5/2), Tula (3/4), Taijion (6/4 is okish I guess), and basically any other Piranas card.
The only cards that are SoA "immune" are Tyd (8/4), Selma (7/7), Raeth (7/5), and maybe Bloodh (7/6) - those cards have good base stats
