They’ve traveled a very long way from the Future and are certainly not there for sightseeing! Under the orders of their tyrannical emperor, the members of the Vortex Clan have come to Clint City to eradicate, at its very roots, the trouble that will be caused by the Clint City Clans in the future. The first to arrive in town are Neloe, Deea, Sunder and Heegrn, who are there to case the joint and prepare for the imminent arrival of the other clan members. The invasion is underway. Who can stop it now?

As much as I love Freaks, I agree that they aren't that good for mono. Still playable though. Their bonus gets useless when you hit the enemy, but it doesn't matter. It can be additional 6 damage in some cases. And that's triple Junta/Fang Pi bonus. So they are not as good in mono, but not useless. And they are NOT relying on their bonus. When it comes to pure power and abilities, they are badass
But synergy with other clans makes up for it. Freaks are great with clans like Jungo, Pussycats, Sakrohm (making the enemy struggle to get you down to 3 Life that he's going to have at the end) or Piranas (damn hard to fight those pillers and Tula, especially when Baldovino is also in play).
Most Freaks Make up for their Poor bonus for having hight power i guess you could say Freaks are famous for having high power and as for Vortex although they will be good with Junkz, Piranas, Morphun and Eklore but they are good with Revenge which Skeelz have a number of good one like Chiara and Jay
ShadowCouncil, at NO point did i say SoB removing bonuses is a plus!
My point was that basing your game entirely on your chosen clans bonus was naive considering the amount of SoB decks that are played.
Against an SoB clan freaks have a better edge than most as they have huge raw stats and abilities that aren't dependant on revenge, courage or confidence.
Your major beef (it seems) with the clan is that their bonus is 'outdated', no? Well, my point is that your statement is moot considering the SoB popularity which negates your point totally. I'd much rather be playing a freaks deck against nightmare or piranas than rescue, all stars, bangers, uppers and several more... purely for their high raw stats and strong abilities.
Again, the fact not many people play them is imo one of their strengths... people like you have no idea how to play against them and then people like me wipe the floor with you
"ShadowCouncil, at NO point did i say SoB removing bonuses is a plus! "
You were insinuating it with the way you chose your words.
SoB popularity negates absolutely nothing. You're only going to be facing SoB clans a fraction of the time, the rest of the time you have a bonus that works once and doesn't aid you when making the attack.
And why stoop to "I'm better than you so ner" tactics? If you want we can spar sometime, I'll be all for that, but there's no need to posture all proud. Especially with such a low average Elo record.
The fact that most people don't play Freaks mono is more than clear. As a mono clan they are deeply floored in modern UR.
The part you seem to have either glanced over out of eagerness to state your opinion, or whatever, is that I think the Freaks are wonderful in concept and make amazing halves. I've played them up to 1313e with certain splits and they're great for it. Past that, they struggle. Mono, they're almost impossible to make it that far.
Trust me, the more you play the more you'll realise, they just don't cut it in the metagame as mono clan. You can reply to me all you like, say whatever you want, but until we see evidence of them actively taking part as a mono in post 1300e, I'm afraid you really don't have a leg to stand on.
"there's absolutely NO game system where they can be used to good effect
I haven't seen a good Freaks deck in a while and let's be honest
it's a clan full of cards with a worthless bonus"
Ouch... Just ouch. As a major Freaks player, that one really stings.
