Game 1 (Disco’s Destroyers)
Spirit Crab, Scalded Basilisk Hatchling, Mongoose Pup
vs. Nether Fairie Dragon, Fluxfire Feline, Curious Wolvar Pup
This was going to be a difficult one for my Basilisk as both the Fairie Dragon and the Fluxfire were 325 speed. I knew I needed to save my Basilisk for the Wolvar Pup. I started with my Mongoose and it had to face the Dragon. My fist attack of the day is a missed Gnaw, lovely. The Dragon uses Dodge, I swap to my Crab. The Crab does some damage to the Dragon and takes a Supercharged Pounce from the Fluxfire. It manages to get a Whirlpool down before expiring. The Mongoose comes in to finish the Fluxfire and the Dragon thanks to Dive hitting, then my two remaining pets finish off the Wolvar. I should mention that the Trap went off at the perfect time for me: it killed the Mongoose which allowed my Basilisk a Trap free environment to take out the Wolvar.
Game 2 (Ratty Dread)
Black Rat, Scourged Whelpling, Robo-Chick
vs. Stunted Direhorn, Wild Jade Hatchling, Clockwork Gnome
I started with my Rat and my opponent started with the Direhorn so lost a turn right away switching to my Scourged Whelpling. No interrupts meant that the Undead won the head to head match-up with the Direhorn. I was able to refresh Death and Decay on my Undead turn. Now could the Rat and Chick beat the Lightning combo? Just barely. I got my Rat’s DoT up on both opposing pets before it died. All of my DOTs coupled with the Lightning was causing major damage. The Chick took out the Gnome and the battle came down to whether or not my Chick could hit its third batter against the Jade Hatchling. It hit all three to finish the dragon and the remaining Turret was enough to force the Chick’s Failsafe but not kill it. So close.
Game 3 (Big Timers)
Spirit Crab, Mr. Bigglesworth, Ghostly Skull
vs. Direhorn Runt, Disgusting Oozeling, Menagerie Custodian
I started off with an Ice Tomb and immediately got Stampeded. After the Tomb hit I swapped to my Crab who was able to take out the Direhorn fairly easily thanks to Shell Shield blocking the Stampede. The Crab then took out most of the Oozeling and even got a Whirlpool down for the Custodian. Bigglesworth came back in to finish the Oozeling, the Custodian came into the waiting Whirlpool and Bigglesworth finished it off. No need for the Skull.
Game 4 (Sultans Of Ding)
Snarly, Infested Bear Cub, Spirit Crab
vs. Zandalari Anklerender, Netherspace Abyssal, Phoenix Hatchling
I Ripped with Snarly to put up the Bleeding effect on the Netherspace Abyssal. On the second round Snarly got Gated out for the Infested Bear. The Bear hit the Abyssal with a huge Bleeding Maul and my then my opponent went afk. I thought they were being a poor sport but later they returned to finish the battle. I guess they could have been being a poor sport but I have to remember that sometimes stuff happens in real life that makes people have to go afk.
Game 5 (Crabby Smacker)
Spirit Crab, Scalded Basilisk Hatchling, Crimson Geode
vs. Darkmoon Zeppelin, Magical Crawdad, Disgusting Oozeling
I was confident going into this battle. I really dislike any double blocking moves like Decoy but I thought I could work around it. I also dislike the Crawdad but my Geode can take it down fast. I would have been fine except for three 95% misses. It’s funny how I’ve been hitting everything then the misses decide to pile on in one battle. I missed two Snaps against the Zeppelin so it was actually able to bring down the mighty Crab. Another big miss was a Feedback to force the Zeppelin’s Failsafe when Wish was up. At the end the Zeppelin and Crawdad both had less than 200 hp when my Basilisk died. So ends another decent day in Challenge Mode. Oh by the way, I smacked that Crawdad good with Stone Rush!
Final Score: 4
