Freaks Half: PUSHING IN POISON WITH MANIPULATION.
Grudj - Pill Manipulation
Olga - Power Manipulation
Bogdan - Stop Ability
Esmeralda - Attack Manipulation
- I've checked and seen a lot of current presets and these 4 are among the top cards played on half decks. Freaks has a lot of useful 4*'s but most of them doesn't compliment with the deck. For example, Wolfgang has a good DR ability, but Pussycats already cover that. Basically, a half deck focused on putting in poison in your enemy early on. Thinking of changing Esmeralda with Wonald for the +LIFE which compliments with Pussycat when defending with DR and when poison has sunk in. The problem with that is that Esmeralda could win battles when needed, but Wonald gives a cushion when defeated.
Pussycats Half: STAYING ALIVE WHILE POISON SINKS IN.
Yayoi - Stop Ability
Lucy - Stop Bonus
Wanda - Staple
Diana - Life Gain
Wanda pretty much is a staple for Pussycats. The release of Lucy gives another great 2* which could compete and could be as useful as Wanda is. Yayoi is simply a beast and Diana is a great card with a +Life ability. All Pussycats have DR as their bonus, which helps in defensive play when Poison is active. Muze is not recommended because you already have Freaks for poison, which they are good at.
You can try Brittany over Wanda I guess...
This deck is for T1, what do you think will be a good replacement for Yayoi? I feel that this is what Pcats need, a complimentary 4* card to cover up Yayoi... Something aggressive and not situation... unlike Lois Ld and Jayzel...
My thoughts, if you wanted to run half & half...
Do not overlook Ella in the 2* slot. Just her sitting out there makes your opponent timid with their big guns. If they go first and you've got Ella & a 4 * Freak, they have a bad decision to make, and that's what this game is about, letting your opponent make bad decisions.
I wouldn't get terribly excited about Wonald. He basically says "-2 dam min 1, unless you're KO'd, which then you lose". It's fun when he loses to a 1 damage guy, but that's about it. You already have 4 Pussycats to fill those shoes. Better to run with Esmerelda. Consequently, another to consider is Hula. If she's the only freak that pops up with 3 pussycats, you can still poison. So she's better than a Protection:Bonus ala Bikini Joe LD. Plus you're not running behind against Nightmare/Piranna type SOB decks.
My run would be:
Cherry (Having Healing & Poison up on rounds 1/2 usually means they can't come back)
Ditha or Charlie. I leave that to taste, but Ditha is a gamebreaker on her own.
