Game 1 (Sultans Of Ding)
Snarly, Infested Bear Cub, Spirit Crab
vs. Arctic Fox Kit, Gregarious Grell, Scourged Whelpling
I think this person has beaten me a few times, but overall I tend to beat them quite often. Like this battle. The Grell and Crab went head to head and they cancelled each other. I was surprised at that. After that it was easy enough to Rip, Blood In The Water then Maul the Scourged Whelpling. I was a little shocked that my opponent kept in the Bleeding Scourged Whelpling, they play too much to plead ignorance about Bleeding moves. Cleaning up the Fox was easy enough.
Game 2 (Frank Rizzo)
Son Of Animus, Fiendish Imp, Black Rat
vs. Darkmoon Tonk, Crawling Claw, Restless Shadeling
When playing a Minefield and Undead team with an Imp you are faced with an interesting dilemma. Do you gate out the Tonk before it gets a Minefield down even though you know an Undead will come in? Or do you let it get down the Minefield and then swap out the Undead after the Tonk swaps out. I took the first option, then had to take Curse Of Doom on my Imp so I could get Immolation up. I figured that I’d get some hp back from Touch later and I did indeed. When my Rat was almost dead, I used Survival, swapped to Animus and let the Touch and my DoT heal me up quite a bit. My opponent must have thought this was not cool because they fled.
Game 3 (The Good Fight)
Robo-Chick, Mongoose Pup, Dimetradon Hatchling
vs. Clockwork Gnome, Zandalari Anklerender, Restless Shadeling
I went to a less competitive team and I wish I hadn’t. There’s something that I find annoying about losing to Gnomes. Perhaps it’s because I overused the Gnome in the beginning of pet battles and it somewhat diminished my initial pet battling experience by being overpowered (before the nerfs). Maybe it’s just because it’s a Gnome, who knows. At any rate, without any shields I could really do nothing about the Turret/Plagued Blood combo. I lost this one fairly badly. It’s bound to happen every once in awhile.
Final Score: 2
