Game 1 (Purple Crane)
Azure Crane Chick, Spirit Crab, Mirror Strider
vs. Fel Flame, Huge Toad, Curious Wolvar Pup
I was looking forward to playing this team I made last night, it did surprisingly well. Unfortunately my opponent didn’t give me the chance and ran away after a few turns. Don’t they know you can be horrible at pet battling and still win if the Wolvar’s Trap goes off at the right time. I’m always looking for a good opportunity to bad mouth Traps.
Game 2 (Tree Huggers)
Xu-Fu, Nether Fairie Dragon, Ruby Sapling
vs. Rocket Chicken, Kun-Lai Runt, Qiraji Guardling
I finished leveling an H/H Sapling just for this team. I started with the Sapling, got Frost Shocked by the Runt then swapped to the Dragon. What looks like bad play turned out to be a good move as it took out the Kun-Lai Runt. There was a lot of swapping as my opponent tried to force the Rocket Chicken versus Xu-Fu but in the end I came out ahead thanks to a Prowled Feed. The Sapling ended up wrecking the Chicken.
Game 3 (Stupid Starfish)
Azure Crane Chick, Spirit Crab, Tideskipper
vs. Kun-Lai Runt, Harbinger Of Flame, Bonkers
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this team. I decided to start with the Crane who got Immolated after using Quills. I swapped to the Tideskipper who got killed by the Harbinger but got a Geyser down. My Crab took out the Harbinger and almost the Runt. The Crab was able to get a Whirlpool down on it’s Undead turn, if the Crane could take out the Runt in one turn the Whirlpool would hit Bonkers. And it did. I still almost lost it at the end when Bonkers took out the Crane’s Flying bonus. If only I could Surge for the killshot, but who takes Surge on a Flyer? This guy. The Crane Surged for the win.
I need to call it a night… hopefully I can finish tomorrow.
Game 4 (Spineclaw Tap)
Spineclaw Crab, Snarly, Infested Bear Cub
vs. Corefire Imp, Silky Moth, Speedy
The Moth against my two Aquatics was going to be problematic so rather than dance around it I decided to take my licks and hope to not get stunned. The Moth Dust hit but didn’t stun so the Spineclaw got Bleed its up. The Bear came in to Maul the Moth and got sent all the way down to 200ish hp before killing it. Then I brought the Spineclaw back in to take on Speedy. It was slow but eventually my Crab won it. The Imp was easy enough with two Rippers and a Mauler still alive.
Game 5 (Bring Out The Bling)
Lil’ Bling, Fiendish Imp, Scourged Whelpling
vs. Anubisath Idol, Chrominius, Kun-Lai Runt
I obviously had a DoT team, I thought I was in trouble with the Idol, but for some reason it didn’t use its Stoneskin until the very end. I would have force the issue. The obvious Runt was easy to juke. The only troubling aspect was Chrominius’ AoE activating the Dagokin racial, that was a good move by my opponent. It wasn’t close to enough to win, my Imp survived the battle with almost full health.
Game 6 (Kraftwerk)
Lil’ Bling, Clockwork Gnome, Clock Em’
vs. Kun-Lai Runt, Squirrel, Leopard Tree Frog
We are the robots! And we lost to a mediocre team lol. Don’t know how I let this one slip past me. Actually I do, I kicked the Squirrel and of course it didn’t work due to the racial. oops. That may have been the difference as it was an extremely close match. Oh well, another nice run comes to an end.
Final Score: 5
