Have different decks depending on where you are in the ladder.
If you are near the bottom, I noticed most people are using attack manipulation decks, Rescue, Junkz, etc.
So bring your Raptors.
If you are Polit Arena, then most people are using Raptors, Dominion, and Berzerk, so bring in SoB clans or Protection power.
Besides your deck, some strategies that usually work are to:
- Split your pills round 3 if you can, so it's not just a 50/50 all in. But count your pills before you do this, if they can cover you split and still get a max round 4, then just all or nothing one round.
- Don't be predictable, if you have a courage or revenge card, don't be afraid to use it on reprisal rounds, or victory round if the benefit of the ability is not worth the benefit gained by them over or under pilling.
- Tend to be more reserved on round 1, but unless you are using attack manipulation cards, don't 0 pill, use one or two (see above strategy on not being predictable).
- Go for a fury round 2 if you know their last two cards can't equal your damage.
Now that I've exposed all my play styles you better win, because any pro reading this is going to slap me around now that they know how I play.
