I'm currently running a Montana deck which is based around hitting 8 damage with Don or Valter Bianco, then picking the 4 damage off however I can. It's been really fun to play and quite successful in T1.
The deck is:
***** Don (8 damage)
***** Valter Bianco (8 damage)
*** Gianfranco (a 7/4 with protected bonus
*** Mona (6/4 with -2 opponent damage - a strong candidate to follow up 8 damage)
*** Bella LD (a 6/4 with cancel opponents power and damage modifier - allows her to hit her 4 damage with regularity)
** Icaro (7/2 with -1 life win or lose allows it to set up 3 damage cards like Carmine or Homy)
** Homy (6/3 damage exchange)
** Carmine (6/3 with -3 min 3 damage reduction)
Am I missing anything obvious with Montana here? I was thinking Ricardo for Carmine for the guaranteed -3 damage rather than growth? Budget isn't an issue, I've got the full set, I just want to know if I can improve this deck anywhere, thanks!
Dr Elisa, Moses, Iris Morana are viable choices. Also have you thought about leavin that 8 dmg stratege? It might work sometimes but Jimmy or Leone might serve your demands too and are much stronger and versitale.
Also a little hint, if you put hashtag # (right alt+C) in front of the name #.Mona Cr (without the dot), you´ll have the link straight to the card as I do
I for one use Montana in all my decks in EFC. For your case in DT, mono-Montana is possible with Leaders.
I won't tell you to change your style of play, I too am a friend of #Don's 8 damage and used him always back in the day. However, there are too many overpowered decks in DT that just discourage #Don.
IMO, it's best to use the un-banned DT cards such as Mr Dark and Magnolia for the 5* slot. For the other slots, i'm not really a fan of the Montana LDs since they lack raw power, yet are good in bluff situations where opponents may over pill.
Still sad Mimmo is banned.
If you want to have 2hko choice keep #Don, if you want to go full rounds then play Leone. The rest of the 5* are not worth it, Magnolia is growth, Valter Bianco is weak, Jimmy and Mr Dark are dr
Raser Ld and Moses are a must, remove Valter Bianco and Gianfranco. You could also play Prince Jr instead of Carmine
Hugo is great with them since you no longer have to worry about the min unless playing vs attack reduction.
Eyrik/John Doom are good because of the double reduction (power and attack)
Ambre can help reach min on old (0 pill) or just win rounds.
Although depending on the mode idk that I would run a leader
