So I've started playing Montanas in ELO for a week now and I really like the mafiosos. But I've been tweaking for the later half of the week because the lack of SOA had been proving quite a problem and Filomena most often ends up being a burden then anything else with the rampant SOAs and whatnot.
The main question is this, since all Montana 2* are rubbish except for Prince Jr, can the Montanas really afford a 5* at all? If so, I've been using Hugo as my 5* for most of my games because he works so amazingly well with the Montana bonus, but I see a lot of people screaming for Don over Enzo, but nothing about Don vs Hugo.
The followup question would be, if I'm to use a 5* at all, should I suffer Filomena or just not use Edd and go 5/3/3/3/3/3/3/2 ?
I haven't found a format that truly fully works well enough for my tastes, The version with Hugo, Edd and Filomena always seems to be on the low end of damage though it seems to be faring the best.
I'm also wrestling internally with squeezing Simon in. Every time I did and he came out, I was glad to see him even though he's quite weak as a SOA, and he's currently sitting on the slot generally assigned to Sharon. He doesn't usually win the round he's into, but he acts as a very nice deterrent to all sorts of annoying ability shenanigans.
I want to know what the UR community thinks of these dilemnas, constructive input is appreciated.
Try -NOT- to use Mono Montana as montana is a pretty weak Mono clan, i's suggest even pairing them with junkz if you like to use +/- attack clans. And 5* in ELO is not usually a good idea when the clan used has only 1 good 2*.
Here is the deck i would reccomend.
You can always use ottakool instead of any of the 2* in junkz.. and then change mona - prince jr, as prince jr is a lower class version of mona..
If that junkz half is too expensive you can change gil (most expensive out of the junkz cards) to even dash.. i know someone who used dash in his decks and got to over 1400..
For a budget deck you can either ask Tanto89, and check her thread for any decks already made, OR, you can Pm me..
Hope i helped.
