After debating with myself for a bit I think Oracle is right here is a new build im currently trying.
Junkz! There is no overpriced staple character in Junkz. The closest would be Qubik who is a bargain for 8k. Ok, Ramona right now, but you could sub her for Jiro, Otakool, Onik or even Stiko with only a modest drop in performance, and she might come down in price by next month anyway. You can even save a few thousand on the 5* by using Maazk instead of Peeler/ Taham/ Fuzz, and Maazk is still really playable.
The best clan in ELO week in and week out is also by far the most affordable.
"What does he have that Pegh, etc... don't have?"
Let's see... 3 more stars that could be put to better use elsewhere? Say, towards high gap cards that "need to be stopped" but have higher power, or some kind of round-winning bonus/ability?
7/2 SOB may not be that bad. Problem is all of her same-stat comparisons (Lucy, Flanagan, etc.) are a star less. I know you know that, but when your splash card is carrying an extra star than it should be, there are probably better options. Hehe.
Yeah you might want to consider half-decking. Vortex fight well when they have an advantage (generally speaking of course), but actually going out there and getting that advantage is difficult unless you had a good draw or got lucky in the opening rounds.
Pairing them with an attack manip clan that has decent damage like the uppers is a good idea, as it gives you leeway in the first two rounds to gain a considerable pill advantage or get a cheap shot in, though it doesn't help much against SOAs (unless dorian is unbanned).
Another approach would be using a low-star vortex half to gain a pill advantage while leaving the heavy-hitting to your other half. Dagg/deea/cyb lhia/C wing is pretty much the standard half deck for this purpose, while clans like gheist and bangers have a bunch of good high-star cards in need of the attack manip dagg and deea provides.
I would try to fit in Benicio. Protection power/ damage is definitely amazing to draw with All Stars, and he's also pretty insane with Ongh.
Curious how Karen is working out for you. I tried her last week; she was solid and affected plays, but never once did I actually hit with her ability.
Whoops thank you
They can work together, but their bonuses are too similar to compliment each other. It'd be like running a Roots/GHEIST deck.
If you want to go half with Bangers, put in an SoA or SoB clan if you aren't going to use Graff or Randal.
Yeah i know, roots are too strong right now, and this deck is really good against them.
Interesting deck. I would personally change Cortez to Taylor and Jeffrey to Roger.
Bit top heavy i prefer
Build evens out the hands more. However the low star cards have potential in this particular deck.
So what clans in your opinion complimeny montanna or uppers well?
Ulu is just a bad clan to get your SOA. If you want SOA, use 3 Montana such as Desmond+Spiaghi+Angelo. Those are 3 abilities that really help Ulu.
So a few last questions. From what I got here, my revised deck should be...
Felicia or Nanook 3*
For that 3* position, who do you think is better?
A lot of people tell me to get rid of Felicia for Nanook, and Warren for some other two star cards. I don't really get that.
Felicia's a 9/3 with the clan bonus and Nanook is a 10/4, but I find Felicia is a great bluff card because she holds off the Bezerkers' -2 life and Fang Pi's +2 damage f I lose(I run into a ton of Bezerkers and Fang Pi's), or gets me a definite win if they were bluffing as well as long as they don't have a power reducing ability, or a power strengthening one that brings them over 9. Nanook doesn't have any ability, so most abilities or clan bonuses will beat her even in the mutual bluffing situation.
And Warren doesn't seem so bad himself. He'll go up against even 8 powered cards, increasing his power to 10, and it can be a pretty simple win even with most abilities. Am I missing something here?
Tula to amiral coco
I think the devs were more into considering how their bonus would interact with montana and sakrohm (hey looks they have the same minimum!!!). Yeah I agree, I guess they can have a better ability, in exchange for a worse bonus, however the ability cant be strictly better than say a Junkz or Sakohrm card would receive ... lol
