After missing a few days of Challenge Mode I’m ready to rumble!

Game 1 (Incrabbing)
Darkmoon Tonk, Spirit Crab, Spirit Crab
vs. Giant Bone Spider, Anubisath Idol, Netherspace Abyssal

082313FI was worried about this Spider since it was faster than all of my pets. What a slow team I have here. I think my opponent made a mistake on the first move by not immediately swapping the Tonk before it could get a Minefield down. I ended up getting two Minefields down over the course of the battle. The Idol walked into a Minefield and tried to go head to head with a Crab and lost. In the end it was my Whirlpool Crab against the Spider and the DoTs couldn’t get through my Shield.

Game 2 (Frank Rizzo)
Son Of Animus, Black Rat, Fiendidh Imp
vs. Harbinger Of Flame, Phoenix Hatchling, Netherspace Abyssal

082313JTouch Of The Animus can do crazy healing. I applied Touch to the Phoenix while it was facing the Rat. My Rat Scratched and had it’s DoT up to benefit from Touch. The Imp’s backline DoT also benefitted from Touch. It added up to about 480 damage healed in one round, not to bad. I used my Survival and the Harbinger missed its Conflag, that was funny.

Game 3 (Pho Cough)
Spirit Crab, Warbot, Fiendish Imp
vs. Thundertail Flapper, Onyxian Whelpling, Strand Crab.

I hit two crits, one on the Whelpling and one to finish off the crab. That was enough to make my opponent leave early.

Game 4 (The Hard Call)
Snarly, Infested Bear Cub, Warbot
vs. Harbinger Of Flame, Phoenix Hatchling, Netherspace Abyssal

082313CThe usual plan worked again. Throw down a Minefield, Rip, then Blood In The Water. Even though the Aquatic moves were weak against the Abyssal Snarly was still able to take it out. The Phoenix came into the Minefield, the Warbot got another Minefield down before dying, then the Infested Bear Cub finished off the Harbinger with strong attacks.

Game 5 (Jurassic Two)
Scalded Basilisk Hatchling, Diemetradon Hatchling, Fel Flame
vs. Direhorn Runt, Chrominius, Creepy Crate

082313BI started with my Basilisk against the Crate, I Feigned to the Flame and was promptly swapped for the Diemetradon. Quick Attack is a Critter move so this worked out well for me. The Flame was able to take out the Direhorn after it killed my Diemetradon thanks to no interrupts. In the end I was worried about Surge Of Power killing me off, but my opponent used it too early and my Basilisk finished off Chrominius.

Note: It’s time for me to go to bed, it looks like I’m going to have to finish this tomorrow. I’ve never done it this way, but why not? I still haven’t lost, there’s no reason to stop my score at five wins.

Game 6 (Ratty Dread)
Black Rat, Scourged Whelpling, Robo-Chick
vs. Anubisath Idol, Fel Flame, Son Of Animus

082313AThe deciding factor in this battle was whether or not my opponent would Deflect my Wind-Ups. I won the battle of mind games and hence the battle of Robo-Chick vs. Anubisath Idol. I make guessing sound so skillful. After having played with Son Of Animus a little bit myself I know the power of Touch, so as soon as my opponent used it I swapped out my Rat. The Flame wasted a conflagrate on my Undead turn, I don’t know why, perhaps a mis-press.

Game 7 (Sears And Robot)
Spirit Crab, Sen’Jin Fetish, Warbot
vs. Fiendish Imp, Unborn Val’kyr, Giant Bone Spider

082313DI went to one of my go to teams for win number seven and I’m glad I did. This team was tough. I have never given the Valk much respect but lately it’s been annoying me more with Curse Of Doom and Haunt. My opponent did a good job of timing the Curse and swap of my Crab, I lost my Crab’s Undead turn. I still had it wrapped up when my Fetish missed the killshot on the Imp. Thankfully it hit the next one with 22 hp to spare. Then the Valk came out for a last turn, even though it died eight rounds ago. Luckily my Fetish killed it off. I’m still not sure how that bug works.

Game 8 (The Cannon Call)
Darkmoon Tonk, Snarly, Infested Bear Cub
vs. Oily Slimeling, Shimmershell Snail, Scooter

082313GI threw down a Minefield against the Shimmershell Snail and swapped to Snarly. I Ripped then swapped to the Bear. A strong Maul hit the bleeding Snail for 1200+ damage. My spineless opponent ran away.

Game 9 (Big Baddies)
Mr. Bigglesworth, Lil’ Bad Wolf, Arctic Hare
vs. Fiendish Imp, Unborn Val’kyr, Giant Bone Spider

082313II started with Bigglesworth and put up an Ice Tomb. My opponent started with the Valk and Cursed me. I Pounced because I didn’t want to waste my root on the Valk if it Haunted. Instead of Haunting the Valk swapped to the Imp. Next turn I Nova’d the Imp who missed its Gate and got hit by the Ice Tomb. Next turn I Pounced for the kill and my opponent took the cowardly way out. It kind of sucks that I got my high score for Challenge Mode on two flees, but I guess a win is a win. No asterisks necessary.

Game 10 (Pho Queue)
Nether Fairie Dragon, Infected Squirrel, Fungal Abomination
vs. Fiendish Imp, Unborn Val’kyr, Giant Bone Spider

082313EThis team again. I started off with my dragon against the Valk and did a decent amount of damage before swapping to the Abomination. I threw down a Seed and then Stampeded with my Squirrel. That’s a nice combo with big damage and a stun. I had the game pretty much wrapped up. My Fungal Abomination put down a Stun Seed on the Spider’s Undead turn. I just had to Absorb and let the Seed kill the Imp. But it never went off. I forgot it can be buggy sometimes. Or perhaps I just don’t understand how it works. Either way it didn’t go off and I lost.

Game over.

Final Score: 9
