Been playing for about a week. Thought I had a decent deck built, but then I tried to move on to ELO and am not doing so hot. So I'm looking for a bit of help, maybe a few tips, whatever the case may be. I'm pretty flexible right now and wouldn't have an issue selling stuff and changing my deck around, or even going a whole different way with it.
I started up going for Bangers, since when I first started, they caught my attention. I'm starting to wonder how good of a choice that was, or if I just need to switch some things around. I'd like to stay Bangers or half and half type of deck if that can work out well.
Right now this is what I have for cards, the first 8 being my current deck.
B ball - Bangers
Blaaster - Bangers
Bodenpower - Bangers
Graff - Bangers
Naykee - Bangers
Hugo - Leaders
Trey - Piranas
Lehane - Sentinel
Cards not in deck atm:
Gyro - Bangers
Willy - Bangers
Mamoon - Freaks
Darth - Gheist
Uxoh - La Junta
Timber - Leaders
Miken Moose - Roots
If that isn't enough to go on, let me know. Or if anyone wants to mail me, that is cool too. Any help would greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I dont know much about bangers, nor sentinel, but... Im sure Trey is doing nothing good in your deck. In ELO, hes nothing, even with bonus, without the bonus, is a total waste.
And Hugo is not necessary too. Once you have Lehane, maybe you should get Hawk instead of Hugo, and make a Sentinel half deck. But be warned, Bangers are not a top gang for ELO.
Vermyn for Naykee will put me over in stars.
Willy also can't replace Naykee, lol.
I took Trey back out, I was trying him out for awhile, didn't pan out. I actually just sold Lehane, I'm thinking of maybe going banger/ La Junta hybrid, not entirely sure.
With bangers not being a top deck in ELO, is that because they don't do well, just not popular? And if they aren't so cut out for it, what would be a better option? I've been looking around when I can, and trying to see what decks do well. So far, I know at least I get my cards handed back promptly when facing rescue, or too much SOB SOA. Nightmare seems to have good promise too from what I've seen. Am I off base with that? Like I said before, I won't mind switching off Bangers if they aren't going to be worth it in the end.
Thanks for all the replies so far, and any more will also be greatly appreciated.
Half bangers is okay in ELO. You do damage with Willy, Bodenpower, Blaasster, then use bball to help mitigate damage. Graff to help negate abilities. The other half of the deck is just with more -dmg ability. I've seen it work well, but easy to spot..
Hmm... so considering I have about 20-21k clintz if I sell everything to work with, should I be shooting for something better than Bangers or even half at this point? Seems they aren't the clan to really be shooting for from what I get. Obviously 20k can only get me so far atm though too.
Well, Bangers is really working for and against you here. Bangers have some amazing cards that go for practically nothing on the market - Willy and Bodenpower are two amazing cards, but they go for less than 3k. That means you've been able to collect them easily, and have a strong base to build a Bangers deck off of now - but the other side of that sword is that you won't make a lot of money off them on the market, and won't be able to build as strong of a deck out of another clan.
I would go Bangers/Sentinel for now, until you can get some cards out of the other clans. Without much trouble, you could build something like this...
Bodenpower / Willy
That's off the top of my head, so I don't have an idea on how effective it would be. I went quarter Sentinel because getting that Power boost to your Bangers is important, but if you going half-and-half is important to you, you could get something similar with this:
Bodenpower / Willy
After asking around and using the advice from people in this thread. I'm changing my deck. I only need one more card, which I would be able to get if either of my cards for sale sell. The new deck will be a hybrid La Junta/Freaks. I went with that mainly because it was both affordable and something that interested me. I was thinking about Roots, but since they apparently get banned every other week, that probably isn't the best option till I get a bit more worth built up.
So here's the idea for the new deck, the last one being the card I don't yet have. Let me know what you think.
Jane Ramba (currently using Vansaar just he's the only other card I have left, haha)
So, that's the idea. I will have about 5-6k clintz left over if I can ever sell Blaaster without losing a ton, if anyone has any idea for good modifications within that budget.
Thanks to all who helped so far.
