Managed to get to 1220, but couldn't get any higher though.
Just play Half until there's a week when Ongh isn't banned.
You could make a decent half deck with like
Pegh, Mindy or Jean, Moegura or Benicio, and Radek.
Which gives you room for a 5s, 4s, 3s and a 2s.
Blaaster Cr 4
Graff 2 or Randal 3
Azgroth 4 or Pan 3 if you use Randal
Eadh 2 or Phyllis 2
** Must be Level 15 or over**
1.) Deck composition: 25 Stars Max
Deck composition in ELO is very important in order to succeed in the game. You can either play using a mono-clan (single clan) or bi-clan (two clans). The option is very open and wide for you to pick from, so let your imagination go wild.
→ 1.1) Mono-Clan deck
Many players will go with a mono clan deck if some of their cards are support dependent. What does this mean?
Support ability/bonus - If your card have Support ability/bonus, it will benefit from having other cards from the same clan in your draw.
If using cards like John with ability "Support: Power +1" and you have 3 other card from Sentinel clan in your draw then John's Power increases by 4
→ 1.2) Bi-Clan / 2 Clan decks
In order to make a good deck using 2 different clan decks, you need to ensure to have a well balanced combination. For this to be effective, consider factors such as ability, power, bonus and clan combinations.
Let's explore on this a bit more, Many ELO players I've seen would use combinations like Freaks / Pussycats , Roots / Sakrohm , Gheist / Sakrohm and many more.
The big question is - how do I know which clans work best with each other?
Unfortunately, there's no specific answer to this question. As I always tell players, it all depends on the strategy when using them.
[ Freaks / Pussycats ] Strategy: Poison + damage = reduces opponent's life to atleast 3, therefore, freaks will be used as offence, while the pussycats will be the defence. Add the ability of cards like Malicia (with + 1 life max 15 when defeated)then you MAY have a good advantage over your opponent
I can go on and on about deck combinations and still would not be able to help everybody find the right combo for them. It would be best if you seek specific advice by posting here in the forum. That way, the other ELO players may be able to assist you with your queries.
→ 1.3) Remember the ELO banned cards: Staff + Player voting system
All cards banned for ELO will be listed here http://www.urban-rivals.com/game/elo/banned_characters.php
2.) Game play strategy
→ 2.1) Pillz use
You can use pillz to multiply your character’s power to the get total attack in your battles. Remember the highest attack wins, so use your pillz wisely.
• You will start off with 12 pillz. It is your decision how you want to spread this out with all your 4 characters in your draw.
• You can also use pillz to add +2 damage to your character by activating “FURY”
A word of advice:
"The most important thing about pillz use is to anticipate how your opponent will play based on your draw and your opponent’s draw...It is not advisable to play 0 pills in your first round each time but do not overpill (more than 6 pills) except in some special occasions. This is because you might face several opponents who 0-1 pill in their early rounds. Hence you must take care that you always use your pills wisely and plan out the game.
Also, if your opponent has 0 pilled round 1 and you have put in 4-5, make sure that you have created sufficient life difference in that round to actually threaten to seal the victory in round 2. Make a relation between the damage you make and the pills you use. Try to not pill too much on cards that do not create a major life gap. This will help your game"
→ 2.2) Strategies
→ 2.2.1) Bluff
Knowing an effective way to bluff is important in all aspects of the game. “A bluff is trying to make your opponent believe you are going to play the obvious way but instead you play offbeat.”
→ 2.2.2) Letting cards through
In your fights you need to weigh if it is worth wasting your pillz trying to beat a very power card or just let it through. Keep in mind that many people might use these cards as a bluff to make you waste your pillz.
→ 2.2.3) Offensive vs defensive game style
In your fight you can either choose to be an offensive player or a defensive one or a combination of both. Offensive game play is done when you use your cards assertively in a battle ensuring you win with these cards. Defensive game play is often played with cards with (- damage as an ability/bonus).
→ 2.3) Taking the Draw
Often times, matches can be guaranteed draws (when both players finish round 4 with the same number of life points). By taking this opportunity, you can avoid losing a lot of points, however you also cannot win lots. This tactic, when used in moderation, can help save you from dropping a lot of points and keep pressing on towards your next ELO goal.

I used freaks/sakrohm using:
Daqun, shazam, Wolfgang, Olga
Juatya, wakai, Murray, alestair
I used to get close to/over 1300 w this basic deck using slight variations.
Yeah that happened to me 2 times while I was in elo
Hopefully y'all can help me out. I'm trying to complete two legendary missions right now so if you guys could help me out with a mono Vortex deck with Galen in it that would be fantastic. thanks a bunch!
Isnt better to buy jungo? If it is, which cards to buy then?
Hey guys, what do you think?
Please bare in mind that the deck has been built on a budget, but to be honest it's extremely effective for it's price!
Don't forget to R+C
Have just started collecting vortex actually, n when it comes to elo who cares how ya win, as long as ur winning
Piranas is an economical choice. I used to use : Hawkins, Selma, Raeth, Amiral Coco/ Ector half, not so much expensive but still be effective.
Interesting, I have met exactly one Hurracan and lost to him due to my stupid mistake. It's doing fine against everythign else. I'll see about your adjustenst, I'm currently doing this
Dieter instead of Edwin (Lots of guys who get their gap from abilities out there currently)
Mawpin instead of Crowen (Wanted to save a star)
Uranus instead of Spiagi (Because why not?)
You mean Tuck? And I would agree with your changes but I would keep treeman over willow, willow is just like a DR that you have to play in the first or second round. No need for her if you put yookie in.
If I had the Clintz this would be my preset in a second
03:48 Elo you won by forfeit against 0AL N3R1C, Azraël legend (10-6): 1181 ELO
03:40 Elo you beat DARK_BOSS2222, La pua (7-0): 1163 ELO
03:33 Elo you crushed NGUchapada04, Never give up (14-0): 1149 ELO
03:28 Elo you crushed NeophyteOSU, Анимешная Академия (16-0): 1130 ELO
02:51 Elo you lost against 0AL N3R1C, Azraël legend (0-: 1119 ELO
02:41 Elo you lost by timeout against Ressel, The Guild Without Borders (14-13): 1130 ELO
02:36 Elo you won by forfeit against NGUchapada04, Never give up (14-11): 1138 ELO
02:32 Elo you won by forfeit against SCH sparciate, La Ligue Des Champions (14-11): 1117 ELO

02:22 Elo you lost against Uzumaki Rune, DL's Knights (1-: 1085 ELO
I reckon half is better, as you can use them to make combos, like Frozn/Vortex, Jungo/Huracan, etc.
But some decks, such as Rescue, are obviously better mono, and in mono decks, it's better to use characters with support abilities.
Ok ty a lot i'll try all of them or maybe make some1 changes if i can so i can see which fits me more
Preference is a big thing.
Kinichaw vs Lumber Jack. Without abilities Lumber Jack is superior, with Abilities and stats involved Kinichaw is far superior as she helps out her bonus.
Most decks aim to have 1 or 2 Dr's, and the best possible cards they can have within that star section. For example I wouldn't build a deck with X clan (Half decking with another clan, Y) if X clan had poor 4 stars. However Y has better 4* so I would get some 2 + 3 from X clan + pack 4's and possibly a 2 in Y clan.
You also have to compare them to each other, the best 3 star in NM.
There's Crowen, Pan, Edwin, Cutey. Depending on what your deck needs, a life gapping card like Cutey would be useful. If your deck needs to have a solid card from NM that isn't prone to SoA Pan would be your option.
