To be perfectly honest, unless you're using a pauper deck just about anything is going to get you to 1300. Rather than focusing on improving your deck, you should first reassess how you play before deciding that the deck is the problem. There's more to using Freaks than 6 pilling or nothing.
That being said, during a week like this where Freaks, Rescue, and Gheist are everywhere Piranas are a strong choice, and are relatively low risk. They only really lose to decks with a lot of DR and one nuke. Aside from that, high damage from other clans like Uppers or FPC get below the Freaks minimum so they have to be wary of how many pills they use round one.
You'll end up with 1211 ELO, that means 5 credits and around 750 clintz.
Came back after a few years of not playing. Made this deck with whatever I had in my collection. Aside from Parmabarb (thank god they effectively gave us Bonnie Ld back) most of these cards are pretty old. Ok, maybe realllllllly old.
Please let me know what you think. I'm not very sure what the current ELO meta is like since I've been away for so long but I'm trying to see what works again.
You Have No Dignity.
Chiara Cr just feels like the 8 power that the Bangers should have gotten long ago
I'd like to make this work in as many ways as possible, especially in ELO
Scooty not Scotty
Other option for 2* if u dont like thormund : Winston / Victoria or Tolliver
Them most important thing to learn first when approaching elo in my opinion is learning how to build pill advantage and learn to avoid those 5050s. Once you learn pill advantage the next thing is analyzing the weekly elo meta. Why are players using x deck and why are players combining x deck with y deck.
And on the 5050 decision making...yes being random sometimes can get the win not going to lie. Or if you want to increase you win% higher to be a consistent top player is making a player log sheet. I do this when I'm only in the 1300 elo range as its easy to get there. So when I'm in a match i enter the players name in his log i made and write down all his moves and pilling so i have a logged data sheet of all of the players tendencies. If down to a 5050 i know if the player likes to pill out on his first option, he likes to play safe with a 1 pill, he likes to safely match my pills, and etc. I don't do tho for 1000-1299 elo as its to long of a process and simply playing pill advantage will get you to 1300 in no time.
No I'm not a "pro" player. Ive topped100 only 2 times but i consistently get to 1300 no problem. Time is an issue for me during the week but if i had more time from thurs-sun I'm sure my elo would be consistently in the 1370 range
La Junta is a viable deck in almost any week. Even SOB. You however need to modify the deck. Thats the great thing about la junta is how easy the deck can be modified for ELO each week. Wats_happening gave a great explanation on each card and combinations.
My First Top=1368 
got to 1388 fell a lot and now im gonna stay at 1368 for the top
I agree with almost everything you say DUC-San but I have one slight issue.
Magenta is the card in Nightmare who I've frequently clinched / won quite a few matches with.
Oshitsune gets banned all the time. Glorg is cool though. I often times try to use Betelgeuse to moderate sucess.
Eadh is actually ok for his price as well.
My only suggestion would be to replace bublgmm with Vektor or Cyb Lhia.
Rate this and test it
Suggestions are welcome
Hi, i've been using Skeelz and Gheist and im getting alot of defeats even in tournaments(mainly because im not paying attention)
Should i sell the cards and play with another clan because i really like this deck but im not getting results.
Miss DerbyQueen/Gatchuchica, Derby Queen, El Kaktus/El Zombino, Cage Troy
then Pussycat half or Roots half. The half i listed was a cheap cost effective half deck.
Unfortunately Skeelz will always be your worst match up with that deck. Luckily for you Their aren't too many Skeelz in ELO these days
I would change
Armani> Curlix 2nd full stop will help a lot vs SOB clans and even skeelz
Maupin> Pan..much more stable card and gives you a nice answer to any DR
Nice to see another player using Willow! She's actually an excellent card. If you find those changes still leave you a bit underwhelmed you could change her to Tree man
CHange Pan to phyliss and put WIllow to Rico
I do............go spend it on buying a deck for dt
On that first link that LOA Yellow posted, you see the characters on top are the temporary ones that players voted on the previous week, and on the bottom section are the cards that are permabanned. The permabans are updated maybe 2x a year. Unless a specific card is way overpowered.
The 2nd link shows which characters are eligible to be temporary banned next week. They're supposed to be the top cards from the top clans last week, along with what was banned the last week. It's also where you would cast your votes for what to keep or ban, if you have votes from the previous week. A card needs 5% of votes, with a majority being negative in order to be banned.
They are not dead in ELO. They have wonderful options.
5 stars - Lady mainly, then Hefty/ Magnar, then Glenn
4* - Nellie, Kazayan, then Maurice if you didn't use Lady, Jody/Sir Barks/other options
3*- Rubie/Oxen, Burt only in conjuction with Maurice and if you did not pick Lady, Lydia/other inferior options
2* - Jose Star, Wendel, Samantha/Bianca/Muller/McArthur
Great 2* options as you can see, and quality 3*. Lady is a great card. Their 4* are also good. I believe the issue is prices rising.
is a good mono. Kitties/Uppers is also great.
I play skeelz and enjoying using them but every body see the Michael play and usally they throw th dr out as soon you go out and go to think if you play second with you might have to over pill to get his damage through
