Mango or Linkos Ld? Before he got nerfed, Linkos Ld was almost certainly the choice thanks to a possible 12 life gap, but I want the best bang for my so-called buck. I'm torn between 8 power and great atk manipulation. I'll count a tally and pick the winner.
Depends on what you are running. Mango is a very old card he is not as usefull as he was. But if your deck has + life cards like oraya, numar, chell. They do however kind of take care of mango's weakness of being played the first rounds. And on the other hand mango tends to work well with linkos ld. And the 4 damage on mango compliments the lack of damage on your lifegapper cards.
Mango with 5 power isn't that big a deal as I rarely more than 1 or 2 pill him anyway. But yeah, this really depends a lot on what other cards you have. If you're using a split deck, what's your other half?
Mango is a great opener and good for forcing pillz out of your opponent. Linkos is generally a later game card. So what does the rest of your deck consist of?
Well roots and gheist get hard countered by the 10 powered cards a lot and skipper was a overkill for them. 7 power is casual for the top cards SoA clans have and full stop cards do not come with 8 power. Mango is not that great as 7/4. And ulu watu have much better damage reduction that the pussy bonus. And it seems you are using linkos wrong. being a wall is much more usefull than risking for the 9 gap, it is mostly there to punish your oponent if they overpill. This is why people use him in the last rounds. And they did recieve a op 2 star coppy bonus card for pesky paradox and dominions. I mean she is basicly saki from all stars with 2 less dmg and one less star. I do not know why is she not banned. oraya is amazing at 4 stars but both her and nareus are bad vs the clans you mentioned. I would use naliah as semi evo. And it seems to me ulu waty does not have that great 5 stars available atm. I consider atanley a better option the 8 damage mixed with the 9 gapper.
As for the cards you picked. You did pick the strongest cards from the clans without considering their synergy that much. Too much blocker cards and the only cards that are a win conditons for you are only nareus and oraya. And they both syck vs SoA clans since they do not shine since they are sttched out of "context". Playing pussy cats with big life gap cards is too old and very outdated. The pussy clan is in a crisis if you ask me. You are basicly playing the old diana pussy composition but instead of diana you got oraya. and instead of charlie you got nareus. You will have much better sucksess if you stack nareus with some more soa cards. like lin bee cr and have a proper round one opener like lianah ld instead of weak bluffs like ashikaze and mango. keile is amazing 2 star wall and just put in some more threaths that do gap a lot this is about the ulu watu consistency on the other hand cards like dave and george are very nice with pussycats. Dave is my favorite 2 star card from ulu waty i would play hiim over mango any time. And you also have access to shatsy, nabrissa and slayer in the pussy department that are not bad. Slayer is times much better than nareus for you since he is conditonal and your only card that does good damage. While with slayer that cards will be uncondtional and you will have much better option to interract with your oponent. both nareus and oraya being condtional and the tons of low cost filler blocker cards is making your deck preditctable.
