Game 1 (Bob Shields)
Anubisath Idol, Spirit Crab, Emperor Crab
vs. Fel Flame, Twilight Fiendling, Crawling Claw

081113AEww, gross, I’m using the Idol. I had a feeling I was gonna hit some bad luck and run into a Sandstorm team. I didn’t. It turned out that I didn’t need to use the Idol since the two Crabs took out all three of the opposing pets. The Shields surely helped with all of the DoTs. Damn that Fiendling is bad.

Game 2 (Bob Junior)
Spirit Crab, Spirit Crab, Emperor Crab
vs. Silky Moth, Sporeling Sprout, Bandicoon

I felt like using more Shields but wanted to chuck the Idol so I jumped on this team. I was a little bit worried about the bird since all of my main attacks are weak against Fliers. It was no problem since the Moth was kid enough to get hit by the Whirlpool. Having three Snaps meant there was nowhere for the Bandicoon to hide.

Game 3 (Tufnel Luck)
Bandicoon, Gilded Moth, Spirit Crab
vs. Unborn Val’kyr, Scourged Whelpling, Shrine Fly

081113BFacing a Bandicoon made me want to use mine. I was lucky enough to have two Undead enemies to Tongue Lash. My Crab and Bandicoon did most of the work, my Gilded Moth didn’t come out until the end to clean up some remaining hp.

Game 4 (The Good Fight)
Diemetradon Hatchling, Mongoose Pup, Robo-Chick
vs. Celestial Dragon, Lil’ Deathwing, Oasis Moth

People were complaining on the forums when the Celestial Dragon’s move set was changed. What’s funny to me is that I rarely had trouble with it before, but now I’m viewing it as a more formidable opponent. I had trouble taking it down. The Triple Snap hit one out of three two times in a row. I got behind then started to make a comeback against Deathwing with the Mongoose but it was to little too late.

Game over.

Final Score: 3

    You WOULD play a double spirit crab team, wouldn’t you.

    Never stop updating this site, Disco. I cancelled WoW in 5.1, and just came back 4 days ago after getting excited about pet battling again from reading your forum threads and your blog.

    I got all sorts of team ideas from you, and furiously leveled a bunch of pets and got my 250th pvp win this weekend. My favorite team from my last 100 wins with Crawling Claw, Fiendish Imp, Warbot. You got me hyped about the minefield, swapping people into it never fails to give me a sense of smug satisfaction.

      Yeah, running a double Spirit Crab team is going to get me into trouble. And by trouble I mean people realizing how good it is and following suit.

      Welcome back, grats on the 250 wins and the Direhorn. I’m glad the Minefield/Swap team is working out, and glad to be of some use to the community.

    People just don’t realize the crab’s power. It has won me too many games to count. I get a good laugh when people call it garbage on the forums.
